Changes for the Summer

Summer is fast approaching - it's so hard to believe we celebrated Bermuda Day just yesterday! That mean's its "officially" summer on the island of Bermuda, and now we're "allowed" to go swimming until Labour Day in September!

I won't be seeing much of the beach this summer, though. Sometime during the first week of June (8-10), I'll be having some major knee surgery - you name it, I've got it! - so that will incapacitate me for a good long while... Thank goodness for digital scrapping!

Speaking of scrapbooking, I'm no longer on the CT at A Cherry On Top - I decided it was time to part ways. However, I have joined up with a couple of designers.

Some of the new ladies I'm working with include:

Designs by Angel, at FaithSisters
Sus Designs, at E-Scape & Scrap and Bits2Kits
Truman Studios, at Digiridoo Scraps

In addition, I'm also going to be the Guest CT for Digiridoo Scraps for the month of June!

Of course, not to forget, I'm still working with dear Marci, who sells at ACOT and Sunshine Studio.

Awesome new book available

A friend of mine, Cathy West, recently published her very first novel - and it is awesome!

Yesterday's Tomorrow
is set in Vietnam during the 1960s and follows the paths of two very different people as they learn to let go of the past, learn about their relationship with God, and learn how to love.

The book is available on Amazon (click the link above), as well as in some of the bookstores in Bermuda and its flying off the shelves.

Cathy is also having a special contest on her blog - in honour of Memorial Day, she is seeking stories and photos from Veterans to share on her blog, Catherine West Blog.

She writes:

"I would love to hear your stories - do you have a soldier in your family? Are you a Veteran or do you know one? Have you been affected by war in any way? If you can't say yes to those questions, write a short story that honors veterans. Fiction or poetry, whatever you like.
Send me your stories (do try to keep them short, we're not after the Pulitzer) and photographs too! I will publish them all on my blog and we'll vote for the winner. So if you want your story to win, you'll need to send people here to vote!!

"The winner will receive an autographed copy of Yesterday's Tomorrow, and something special from Bermuda! Can't wait to hear from you!"
