Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


It’s been forever since I blogged! Life happens as they say and it certainly has for me. It’s been quite some time since I scrapped too. I’ve done a few cards here and there,but nothing substantial unfortunately. That’s my goal – get back into it whenever I have some free time. That’s the trick isn’t it…free time? Well, I’ve decided to do Shimelle’s Learn Something New Everyday online class on the blog, so let’s see how that goes! Technically it was a class that went through September, but since that was a hugely crazy month for me, I’m doing it this month. The thing that I completely love about Shimelle’s classes is that once you buy them, you have lifetime access to them on her website! Many of them repeat every year, so your access includes all future years classes too. Thanks Shimelle, that’s so super cool!

For this class, what I write about today, happened yesterday in most cases. I’ll include pictures when possible, factoids or just something I remembered as making me smile.


The Toronto’s CN Tower’s Glass Floor was the world’s first when it opened on June 26, 1994. It is 256 square feet of solid glass and is five times stronger than the required weight bearing standard for commercial floors.
