10 Years

Mar 28, 2014

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my brother’s death. Ten years is a long time yet it still feels like yesterday, I was enjoying a fabulous morning sunrise training my golden retriever, Sonny in the field. I went to my car to get us some water and noticed I had a bazillion missed calls on my phone. I called home asking what was up and I will never forget Alan’s words,” Its Richard.” He didn’t have to say another word, I knew he was gone. I could hear it in his voice and I felt it deep in my soul, my little brother was gone. At that moment, my life and the lives of my family changed forever. Mom and Dad lost a son, my sister and I lost a brother, my daughter’s,...

Archived Halloween & Fall Projects

Oct 17, 2012

With fall finally getting ready to hit my little neck of the woods.  I thought it would be fun to do some digging in my archives and list all the fall and Halloween projects I’ve created over the years. Even though some of the items I’ve used are no longer available from some manufacturers there are still plenty of products out there from others for you to easily make substitutions. Just click on each of the links below and they will take you to each of the blog posts. As you can see I have several cards, decorations and a mini album just waiting for you to create. Also, I thought it would be fun to show you one of the first layouts I ever made. This one is of Sonny our golden retriever...

Its been a Dogs day afternoon…

May 17, 2011

and soon to be bath day as well for three super wonderful doggies. Today, I am taking a day off from the studio to just relax and get myself organized. I’ve discovered I’m the worlds worst at relaxing. I just cannot do it. Always feel like I need to be doing something at all hours of the day or night. So today I sat outside with the four legged babies and threw toys and just chilled. They loved it and I love watching how they are all so different in personality. We can only throw rope toys or balls for one dog at a time. Chiefie being the youngest can out run the other two, Buster being the middle is a pure toot and will turn nasty the second Chief or Sonny even thinks...

Another week flew by quick…

Aug 26, 2010

Gosh my blog is taking a huge hit right now. I guess I will give you a quick run through of my week. Lots of neat things going on. First off I am super excited to be a part of Paper Cowgirl next year. I was thrilled when Cindy asked if I would be the guest speaker and a teacher at her event. This is going to be such a super fun weekend. On a sad note my grandfather has said his good byes and has told everyone he is ready to pass on. If you would please send him comforting thoughts and prayers I would really appreciate it. My Dad has been with him since last Friday. Thankfully my Aunts made it to ME yesterday to see him. So needless to say since...

A little wake up call…

Oct 24, 2008

for my dear hubby Alan since he wouldn’t get out of bed this morning… after all it was 11:30. Every time I see this I laugh so hard I cry. It’s only a few seconds but so worth every tear I shed from laughter. Once Sonny our Golden Retriever saw him move he tackled him…. Alan was up for sure then. I know this is a little form of sick humor… I’m gonna blame it on all the book projects I have been working on lately. I have 30 completed. But honestly, my sister and I laugh so hard we can hardly breath. Have a great...

I LOVE golden retrievers…

Aug 5, 2008

I was lucky enough to get to train and put two field titles on my golden retriever Sonny. We adopted Sonny from Dallas Fort Worth Metro Golden Retriever Rescue when he was 10 weeks old. So how many of you would have ever thought I would be up at 5 a.m. driving way out into the country to train in muddy water, mosquito ridden and chigger infested places just to play with my heart dog?
