Hello - My Daughter GRADUATES, my dog Pepper and musings of a crafter.

HELLO, hello!

Whew its been awhile since I've posted - spring has brought so many things to do along with it!

I am glad to say that everything seems good - with one particular important milestone:
 MY DAUGHTER IS GRADUATING UNIVERSITY !!!!!!!   HURRAY! 

 I'll be doing more posts to do with this 'huge' event in our lives later on because I am going to make lots of celebration crafts to decorate our home for the days leading up to Graduation Day - and - I have some wicked projects in development.....some little memento  for my daughter's sake. So come back for those please :)

So while I am having a lovely spring, there have been no shortage of other less-than-desirable outcomes. I've experienced 'foot problems' which involved trips to emergency [where the upside was a handsome British x-ray technician], alot of resting with your feet propped up high, long-awaited visit to specialist, buying all sorts of specialty items {$$$}- can't emphasize enough how lovely it is to buy sandals to wear with an ankle brace to just add that fashion flare, lol!  Ah the fun never ends!

 Luckily there's been some wee bit of  buying craft products to off-set boring mobility aids. I've gotten dies - DIES - and more dies!!!  Some nice stamps, and lovely cardstock.  Ribbons, buttons, fibers, paints, GLITTER, flowers, and PUNCHES!  I am finding leaf and butterfly are staples in the craft world where you can't have too many!!!  And for the first time - ever - I am getting a SEAHORSE die!  How fun will that be!!!

So  I have been busy - almost too much as I had to balance craft playtime and my other obligations, so I haven't had the time to blog about it.

But coming up next are a few of my latest crafts - not all - as I am one of those people who craft on a project then move on to the beginning of another....serious concentration issues, lol.

HERE IS A PICTURE OF MY MISCHEVIOUS DOG !

 PEPPER
 DISCOVERS THAT THERE IS ONLY SO FAR A LEASH WILL LET HIM ESCAPE!




What a little nut-ball, he jumped threw the bars and promptly discovered the leash is only so long, ha ha!  How disappointing....look at that face {which is dappled by the sun}!  Awww....!  

When Pepper sees another dog walk by, he wants to go say hello. Often dogs and their owners stop
and they have  a little chat and the dogs muzzle each other through the bars.  We will let him out to meet 
them up close....but Pepper left to his own devices, will and does - get 'out' .  I have put up a string until I can find a more pretty solution without cutting off his view. 

 He loves our patio :)
