Yes! We have Puppies!!! NINE PUPPIES to be exact!
It has been loads of work and lots of fun but they are now ready to find new homes.
We have homes for six of them but the other three are still looking. The last picture is of two of the three that are still.... homeless.
If anyone knows of a home... let me know!
Oh and the big adult brindle... He's the dad and all mine... I would not let go of him for anything! ;)

Life around the house is starting to change. Our second to the youngest son David is now engaged
to a wonderful lady, Miss Olivia!. David is now moving out of the house which gives me something that I have been dreaming about for a long time. Yes! It is time for a scrapbook/craft/office room all for myself.
I love antiques and I have been collecting furniture for craft storage for quite sometime now. I have my awesome printer's cabinet I found. I also have amassed three library card catalogs, an old antique dresser, and my collection on sewing machine drawers. I was wondering through one of my one of my favorite haunts and came upon this antique string dispenser. It is dated 1889. I absolutly LOVE to use string in my creations and decided that it must be added to my collection. Score!!!
I was talking to the gentleman and he also mentioned that he has another double printers cabinet complete with dies in his warehouse. I must admit I was tempted but realize I only have so much space.
I noticed that paint is on sale this weekend at Home Depot and I already have bought a ceiling fan for the room. The room has vaulted ceilings and I just can't wait to get started!
Now if only he will pick up the rest of his stuff! LOL! Hummm a yard sale might be in order....

Oops! I was caught!

I had to laugh, my husband asked where his layout was. It seems I forgot to post the layout of him. He was so proud of this thing.
I promised to get it posted right away so here it is honey. It was also made from the "Pack your Bags" Kit from Scrapbook Doodle.

It has been a whirlwind or"Potato"!

It seems since last November there has been a "potato" going on in my life. I chuckle when I say that. If you know me then you know my son Andrew who is always worried that a "potato" will
touch down at any second. (Potato = tornado) I think instead of a "potato" I must have had a
giant Yam.. lol... or hurricane.
After losing my dad and getting through other hurdles in my life I am ready. It is starting to slow down now. Life is becoming a bit easier. It is time to start fresh.

I am just getting back into scrapping and starting to feel better with what I am creating.
These are a few things that I put together with the "Pack your Bags" kit from Scrapbook Doodle.
It was super fun to work with and is packed full of goodies!
