In Progress : Fernie Lantern Festival Penguins

I recently posted the bare bones of a Penguin Lantern a couple weeks ago and here is a penguin I made (but not with the same bones) that is about 5 feet tall and weighs about 2 pounds. I need to get the other two penguins completed since the Fernie Lantern Festival is just around the corner.

Around Fernie : Single-Pitch Roof Homes

If a new house going up in Fernie’s Annex neighbourhood doesn’t have a Single-Pitch Roof design, I’m a little shocked. I see the appeal of the simple and clean exterior design and how some of the homes add a splash of colour to really catch your eye. If I was building a home, I would be leaning towards something like this.

Pen To Paper : The Cottage Tree

For a couple years my husband’s side of the family would organize a cottage trip in Ontario for us all to vacation at. There was a fabulous beach but at the end of the beach there was this tree that everyone would gravitate towards. We enjoyed it’s shade, shelter and general grandiose.  His father passed away last year and we haven’t been back. This tree will stand out to me and remind me of those great, relaxing weekends with the whole family.

Side Note: The reason for all the recent Pen To Paper posts is I have new supplies. Large pads of nice drawing paper and a set of four pens with different weights.

We grew up in Southern Ontario and we will always consider this area to be “home” so we went home for a week last week to visit friends and family. Here are a few quick glimpses into our whirlwind of a trip.
