She is our newest addition. She is 9 weeks of pure joy. She even sleeps through the night in her kennel.
Here is a video slide show of Abigail and Isabella:
She weighs in at a little over a pound and is already figured out how to climb the stairs. She is doing excellent and has already used the puppy papers and gone outside to potty. We are proud to have this addition and are hoping it will help calm our hyper Isabella down a bit.
Here is a video of Mike reading to our grandson Max:
I hope you will all enjoy these pictures and video's. It is snowing here in Maryland and Isabella loves it. Abby isn't sure what exactly it is, but did not hesitate to go potty in the snowy grass.
We have our tree up and decorated and hope to get lights and garland on the front porch. I'll try to post pictures tonight.
Since I am having surgery and most likely will not be able to enjoy Christmas dinner, we are having a nice Holiday meal with friends tonight.
Please in this Holiday season, keep Christ in Christmas. Stamp Happy, be kind and always
It's official. Christmas season is upon us in full grandeur and fun. It has gotten considerably colder here in Maryland and I am so excited to be able to make a few projects before my surgery on December 18.
I won't be making very many hand made Christmas gifts this year because of time restrictions.
This paper ornament took me a record 6 hours to complete. There are a few added details that the standard Stampin Up ornament does not have.
The biggest differences are the color. Instead of stamping each piece of the ornament, I die cut them from sweet tooth and black licorice card stock. They can be purchased at My favorite things stamp company. Instead of using tulle I used lace from my collection.
After the black and white card stocks were cut, I ran them through two different embossing folders before scoring and assembling. I used my quickie two way glue pen around the edges of each piece and used "Bridal" glitter from Sparkle N sprinkle.
The pink wheat like accents are from my stash. The ornament center is finished with a piece of lace I made into a rosette and finished with a small metal flower and shrink plastic butterfly.
The hanger for the ornament is made from a piece of off white cording. The back center is finished off to hide the hanger assembly and allow me a place to take credit for my work.
I am very proud of the way the project turned out. I hope to get it postal in the next couple of days.
I hope you all have a super day. Stamp Happy, be a blessing and please be kind to one another!
I hope if you had the desire to go shopping today that you have made it home, safe sound and with all of your hair still in tact! (ha)
It has been a busy day here. I spent a majority of the day finishing up the mini album I made for my female chemo buddy "T". She has actually sent me several letters and I enjoy hearing from her. It is not a usual occurrence to hear from your buddy.
Many of you may already know (if you follow me on facebook) that I will be out of the loop several weeks in Dec-Jan. I have to have my surgery re-done. I am not looking forward to this event, however I know that when it is all finished I will be feeling better once again!
enjoy the slide show
