Banff Travels & an Update

Hello blog readers! It has been awhile since I have updated the blog once again, but thank you for continuing to visit and support me. I have a few projects to upload, which I plan to do in the next couple days, but first I wanted to do a bit of a life update first.

Andrew and I visited Banff, AB for a couple days at the end of April just for a nice getaway. We had such a wonderful time! The weather was gorgeous for our first day there, so we hiked up Tunnel Mountain. The views of Banff were spectacular from up there! This first photo was taken on my iPhone 5 and edited on instagram and the second one was taken in vivid colour on my Canon camera.

Later in the afternoon, we enjoyed a couple patios as the weather was perfect (the rooftop one at the Elk & Oarsman was really fun).
 

We had a nice fancy dinner that night at The Maple Leaf. Our favourite dish was this Regional Game Platter which featured many meats and cheeses we had never tried before.
We did some shopping on our second day as the weather was a bit rainy. We stopped in at Beaver Tails for a snack in the afternoon.
Even when rainy, the misty mountain views are still breathtaking! We are so lucky to live this close to such a beautiful place! Though both of us have been here many times, it still amazes us how wonderful Banff is.
In other news, I completed my work term for the winter semester and have just started my final semester of classes for my Bachelor of Applied Interior Design degree. I will be working on my capstone project until the beginning of August when I will present it at our grad show. I look forward to sharing more about this soon!

Andrew just completed his diploma in Civil Engineering Technology at SAIT this April and he has already found work. He is loving his new job and we are both very grateful that he found something despite the the downturn in the economy.

I have been creating lots of tags and cards lately, which I will be posting in the next couple of days. I have also gotten back into polymer clay and have been creating some cute little fairy buildings. If you follow me on instagram (staybeautiful84), you may have seen these. You can head over there for a peek, but I will also be posting them here shortly too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day and are experiencing some nice spring weather!
