I have reservations for dinner each night and breakfast each day at our Chocolate Moose Restaurant.
Woo HOOOOOOOOOOO Can't wait................ Until then I am working on some projects for Crop Stop as I am a guest designer for October. I have it started and will post it when I return from vacation. Can't post anything until the first of October so you will just have to wait until then.
The order is going in on the 28th and should be back to me in a week then I turn around and mail them out to you. We save almost two bucks on each marker ordering them from this company. woo hoo
so who is in??????????

Our day consists of waking at six am each and every single morning. Breakfast, then out in the boat we go with our guide. Each morning we have a different guide we of course have our favorites but each and everyone is wonderful.
Cal is funny and tells the most craziest stories ever
Mike quiet but will bend over backwards for you
Kenny is all about you what do you want where do you want to go
Steve is very very focused and will not give up until both of us have caught the biggest fish out there and he wants to make sure he teaches you everything he knows and that is a lot since he is top in his field
Then there is John, Big John that is he is just so much fun sort of like a grandpa to me.
We have had others but those are the ones that really stick out. I look so forward to going up every single year. I have made friends with the staff as well. Tracy and her Mom Theresa are so welcoming.
And then there is Dakota, Dakota is my favorite reason for going to Canada. As soon as Rick and I pull up into the drive there is this huge rush and hugs and licks like you have never seen. Dakota runs and jumps on top of Rick and just licks his face until he has sat down and played with her. Dakota is a Chocolate Lab that we have adopted just don't tell her owner Steve.
This year Steve put into the Lodge high speed internet.. still no t.v. and that is fine with us but high speed internet wireless to boot. So, that is why Rick and I went out and bought a new laptop to take this year. So that we can blog from the cabin and upload the days pictures.
Later this week I will take a picture of our suitcases you would think that we are leaving and never coming back.
Now this is just our stuff we still have to stop in International Falls for supplies and food before heading over the border. Then we stop up in Canada for meats and such.
Today I close and tomorrow I work ALL DAY open to close and yes even on Labor Day I work open to close.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel I am off on Wednesday and Thursday those are my last days off until vacation.

I guess I will have to make my own Tiffany box
So here it is the new laptop on top of my laptop. This one we are calling the traveling laptop..lol
smaller than mine but it will still work just fine. Geek Squad is coming out Thursday night to install my wireless printer and to fix the routers so that all three computers can be shared (note to self delete all orders before Big Daddy sees them..lol)
Just kidding.... that is one great thing about BD I can tease and all but I tell you he has only flipped out once when I purchased on the art supplies I have and that was only because he bought me one too....lol
Gotta love that man
So, here is the shopping list thus far
Copic Markers ( yes laurel we are getting that order soon) Hey Kari girl let me know what ones you want)
Stampinup order from Carolina
Ordering some really cool brand new nestabilities from cropstop since I am a guest designer I get to use my wonderful coupon code don't forget you can use it too...
Hoping that Tiffany's pulls through so I may have to pay them for the boxes.
Let's see I think that is it........
Not too bad eh?
Hey 18 days and counting then we will be CANADA bound..woo hoo

The boxes would just be the icing on the cake. So, if you know anyone who works for Tiffany's and they would be willing to sell me two small jewelry boxes or a medium size box please let me know and I will send you something for it.
I am so excited about this canvas. I actually found a blogger that is as big of an Audrey Hepburn fan as I am. This canvas will take a little longer than my normal two weeks to finish a canvas I am looking at having it completed by end of month October. I want this one to be perfect. Rick and I went to the craft store today and spent a long time just finding the perfect Tiffany blue pearl and gems.
So, Tiffany Customer Service if you are reading this...... ask anyone on my blog roll call I am the real thing and would be so happy to have those boxes.

I am doing the canva totally in black and white with a splash of Tiffany Eggshell Blue, Pearls and Diamonds. So, stay tuned..... the canvas will be coming by the end of September or this weekend depends on when I get back from Charleston South Carolina. I am going to try and talk Big Daddy into visiting some antique shops so that I can find some cool old vintage items to add to this canvas.
I have always loved the movie Breakfast at Tiffanys and any old movie that she was in. Sadly I have only see the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's once and I really don't remember anything.
I'll never forget one night BD and I were looking online for ideas for Christmas and found Tiffany's website. OH MY GOSH BD could buy me five diamonds for the price of just one Tiffany Diamond. Heck I would just be happy with a Tiffany blue box to add to my canvas. Anyone have one that would want to sell???lol
This is one canvas I really am looking forward to working on. This is going to be so much fun. I mean just look at how beautiful she was......
And of course with the Tiffany Blue I will have to add just a splash of red
Hummmmm okay so I won't be using the smoking one in the canvas at least I don't think I will
This one oh yes.....

I love this stamp by www.catslifepress.com too much fun. I used gold ink and my white slingo pen. I needed to create something todayhttp://www.cropstop.com/ today and here is what I made. I owed someone an ATC so ...... here you go
and choose your colors then email me with the colors you have chosen. Once everyone has chosen their colors and we know how many we are getting I will send you a paypal invoice. You will then send me your paypal money and I will place the entire order. I just add a buck or two to cover postage from my house to yours for those of you that know me well, you can ask anyone on the right hand blogger roll call what I am like. Laurel and Kariberry went in on our last order and some other folks. I make NO money on the deal as a matter of fact I usally lose around ten bucks on the outbound shipping but that is FINE with me as I just do this for my friends and blogging friends.
Now Rick and I will be in Canada from September 10 through September 28th so I will try and get this order together before we leave and have it back to me before we leave and sent out to you before we leave. THat is a lofty goal but I will give it my best shot.
okay who's in????????????
Laurel I got your order.
Oh here Email me at Vrosenshein@aol.com with your order.
