This year for the first time I schlepped some craft supplies up. I wanted to spend time coloring some digital and stamped images I took. I also created some boxes for the housekeepers and friends that we meet up there every year - a big shout out to Jo and Jane. This is the table in our cabin full of 'stuff' that weighed down the car.
This is our new fireplace which made the cabin toasty this year. This is the view I looked at everyday while coloring. This is the beautiful Lac Vieux Desert populated with eagles and osprey and lots of ducks. The grass in front of our deck is filled with native sparrows and hummingbirds in the monkeyflowers.
This is our kitchen, filled with everything you would need to cook except food. We prefer to use the plan that feeds us three times a day. I walk up to the lodge for lunch while my husband gets a "to go" lunch so he can wander out to take pictures.
This is one of the double beds in the bedroom, there are two and the couch pulls out to make a bed, also. I didn't take pics of the bathroom, but it's really big and bright.
Now, on to the Closer. I knew that Brenda Lee couldn't accept the job as chief. What would happen to her team? And who would take Provenza and Flinn? But I think she was a little conflicted after thinking about all the great things she could do and influence if she was chief. Brenda Lee is a terrific example of what can be done with brains and chocolate.
This was a relatively simple card to make, some of the petals on one flower were stamped again and popped up and one complete flower was popped up. The other was left as stamped. I love the versatility of the Friendship Jar stamp set and the two additional stamp set "fillers" for the jar. I am assuming they will be coming out with additional fillers for different seasons, the Halloween/Fall set was just released. This card is a tribute to Dick's flowers at Sunrise - good job, Dick.
