Weekend at the Cottage

The weather was chilly and raining most of the weekend.
We did get the water in and the storm windows off.

Luckily I brought a few crafty projects to work on ;)
I purchased these Spectrum Noir markers.
You know I love my Copics, but I thought I could leave the SN markers up at the cottage so I don't have to cart my heavy bag of Copics back and forth.
I only have 3 packs of the SN, so brought some of my Copic markers, but only some colours for hair shades.
But I needed more colours to colour in other images.
I guess I need more markers ;)

I remembered to bring my trimmer, but forgot my bone folder to score my cards.
So what is a creative girl to do...improvise, teehee.

In between the rain, I got to go for a bit of a quad ride.
I also went on a little nature walk.
This is an old tub I found at an old homestead years ago.
It looks like someone plowed into it when clearing the road of snow :(
It is in pretty rough shape now.

I saw this bird nest waaaaay up high in a tree.
I was so excited to see the baby birds in the nest, so got the big ladder and carefully climbed up.

Must have been from last year, as it was empty :(
We had seen a robin in the yard, but I guess this wasn't her nest.

Sadly only got in a short walk before the rain started again.

Oh look, I see a woodpecker found a nice meal inside our log table.

Besides creating, what is there to do during a cold rainy day at the cottage?
Drink a nice cold can of Coke and have a snack while working in my planner beside the fire :)

No matter what the weather is...Rain or shine, this view is so worth coming out here.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a creative day.

Tracy :)
