Well we all survived…

Aug 26, 2008

I say we because the first day of school is just as hard for us par­ents as it is for the kids. (sor­ry for the not so great pho­to but I was doing good to get this one) And here is Aman­da’s last first day of high school pho­to “as said per my sis­ter”.

Fabric is fun…

Aug 23, 2008

Using fab­ric in place of pat­terned paper is always a fun change and it adds lots of inter­est­ing tex­ture. Hit­ting the rem­nant sec­tion in fab­ric stores is one of my favorite things to do. Dig­ging in the bins is like dig­ging for hid­den trea­sures… you just nev­er know what won­der­ful pat­terns you are going to find. I’m so excit­ed that my first book dead­line is fast approach­ing and I am actu­al­ly right on tar­get. Which just so hap­pens to be the main rea­son I have been a bit of a bad blog­ger as of late. But this is the dead­line were they use items for the cov­er of my book and I want every rhine­stone, but­ton, rubon, rib­bon and piece of glit­ter in the per­fect spot. Oh one oth­er thing… I have been think­ing...

Family Artifacts…

Aug 19, 2008

I was giv­en a Mas­ters Chal­lenge and thought some­times it’s not about the peo­ple or the moment I like to scrap about but the item. So here is my chal­lenge.… “Get out your trim, but­tons, chip­board and pat­terned paper and cre­ate a lay­out about a child­hood toy or fam­i­ly arti­fact that still brings you joy. Post your respons­es to the cre­ativ­i­ty chal­lenge in the forum at memorymakersmagazine.com/masterschallenge. The hob­by horse shown in this lay­out was put through some very vig­or­ous rides. My broth­er Richard would rock back and forth as far as the springs would allow and go as fast as he could. Some­times this action would lift the met­al frame off the floor which scared me. He rode this hob­by horse like a true cow­boy on a mis­sion. I on the oth­er hand...

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?
