Anne of Green Gables

Meredith’s performance of Anne of Green Gables was last week. She’s worked hard all year long to prepare herself for these couple of nights.

She did a great job.

When she first found out her role, she was quite disappointed. Her role on Thursday night was of Mrs. Allan, the pastor’s wife and on Friday she played Mrs. Sadler, a lady interested in buying Green Gables. Neither were huge roles but, let me tell you, she did a great job with both of them.

I was impressed with how well she acted. She didn’t merely recite her lines, she truly acted them. Her character was convincing. She spoke strong and true. And she didn’t miss a single line. She actually added some in! A cue was missed and instead of standing around looking blank waiting for the other actor to make their entrance, she improvised.

I am so impressed with her hard work and her dedication and the way she rose to the challenge and played the best part she could play even though it wasn’t really the part she wanted.

Way to go Meredith.

Spring Fling 2010 Wrap Up


The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. I’ve neglected my friends, my family, my house and of course my blog.

The Spring Fling Craft show was a HUGE success in spite of the weather forecast for the day. They were calling for a 90% chance of thunderstorms for the entire day, and the humidity was supposed to bring the temps up over 30C. Luckily for us the hot humid weather never came and the rain held off until 2:30.

I’d like to give a huge thank you to Nicola for hosting the event and for pushing me into doing it. I’m not sure if it is something I will do going forward but I have always wondered what doing one of those shows would be like. I learned a lot – both in the process of getting ready for the sale and the day of the sale.

I’d also like to thank all those friends who came out and supported me. It was so great to see so many familiar faces throughout the day. Your encouragement meant a lot to me.

I am always amazed at the talent at these shows. The jewelry there was beautiful and I managed to pick up a couple of very nice pieces.

I also picked up these very cute handmade buttons that I can use on my cards and scrapbook layouts from Melissa at Serafina and Stella.

Thanks again to everyone who came out, to all the vendors who were there and made the day a lot of fun and to Nic for all her hard work and planning.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with all the stuff I have left. Another sale perhaps?
