I miss my baby!

We lost our darling little dog Pebbles a couple of weeks ago and I miss her so much.  If you want to see one of the cutest little doggies in the world here she is.....

More you say?

Halloween's a coming!

I love Halloween.  Not as much as Christmas but it's a close second.  I really miss having young children to get dressed up and get excited with!!!  For now I just love watching the little ones that come to the door.  So sweet.  Here's a little vintage image of a sweet witch.

Well hello, long time no see!

Believe it or not I have actually had requests to get the hell back and write on my blog.  Not one to turn down a violent request I figured it was high time I posted something.  I have been busy doing all sorts of things.  I've taken up sewing again with a newly developed interest in quilting along with it.  I'm loving it.  I'll post some of those things at another time.  Right now, I'm getting ready for thanksgiving and the very serious responsibility of bringing to pumpkin pie to my sister Kirsty's house.  (hehehhe, thanks Costco!)  I may re-plate it and claim it as my own if she doesn't read my blog before Sunday.  Hehheehehe, always the thanksgiving trickster I am.  Here's a card using one of Stampin' Up's stamp sets. We did this at our September club class. The girls liked it.  Edited to add:  Apparently I didn't teach this at any of my classes, hmmm. As the comments below show, I am a liar.

Yikes! I've been bad....

Yep, it's me.  Remember me, I write this blog.  Well not lately, but I have written.  Just dropping in to say sorry I've been absent from posting, I had a horrible farm machine accide nt and it chewed up both my hands. I'm actually using a voice recognition typing program. Cool eh?  Okay, I'm lying. You've broken me down.  What I have been , in fact, is lazy.  There it is. Lazy. On the upside though, at least I still have my hands.  Thanks for your good wishes.  I promise I will be posting a creation soon.  Soon, I said!  For now I leave you with a lovely parting shot of.....
Now that is one relaxed little lamby.

The happiest of anniversaries...

This was my anniversary card to my darling husband Jim. On Wednesday it was our 9th anniversary.  I can honestly say that they have been some of the happiest years of my life.  I made him a lovely dinner of steak, grilled asparagus w/sea salt and twice baked potatoes.  Then we had fresh homemade blueberry pie for dessert.  As I have been extremely mushy so far I will continue in that vein.  We are extremely blessed to have found each other and I thank God for it everyday.  Okay enough of the mush. I hate to say it but I cannot remember for the life of me who made this stamp.  Update:  The Stamp is by Magenta Hmph.  It's really nice though so if you know tell and I'll give them proper credit.  I coloured with copics and then over-sprayed with vanilla Smooch  Spritz.  It's in the new Stampin Up catalogue.

My Copic Journal

I found this super site called Copic Munkies. They showed how to make a copic journal. This little journal has printed charts which you can find on the site. They have charts for marker inventory, custom colours, etc. It's pretty cool.  I used my Bind it All to make the book and I printed the pages out on cardstock so I can colour right inside the book with the actual paper I use with my copics. The brand is called Hammermill.  I've had this Daisy D's paper that I used to cover my journal for ages. I was hoarding it. I'm a craft supply hoarder.  Isn't  there an anonymous group for that? Also check out this site Michelle's MBellishments She's got some great ideas for this copic journal too.

I got those rhinestone embellishments at the dollar store.  Dollar store!!!! I paid $7 for one of these on a scrapbooking site. Holy crap. Needless to say I now buy them from the dollar store. Oh yeah, the bird's name is Frank.
