Above my door, that only animals can read that says "All Furry Four Legged Creatures Welcome Here!" because look at this...

This came over yesterday while I was at work and the boys were playing outside with some of the neighbor kids...this wrapped my husband around her furry little paw in less than 30 seconds (although somehow this is all my fault even though I wasn't even here..huh?)...This ended up getting a bath from me at 9pm because I couldn't bear to stare at those eyes begging to be let in our home...This does not have a microchip...This was not reported missing in any of the local newspapers or Human Societies....This is something like sleeping with a toodler that drools a little more....This is the sweetest most docile well behaved probably pure bred black lab puppy you ever met in your life...This now has a name courtesy of Britain "Retro"..."Retro" needs a happy home....because I already havethis....
and let us not forget...
I loved my first day at SBF (my new 2nd job at The Scrapbook Factory) it's so fun...I so enjoyed helping customers pick things out and I don't know...for me there are no words..I know it sounds silly but it's like Utopia..it's not stressful when you're doing what you love...anyway here's a picture of Amy (this one is Amy Jo) she's the one who's been showing me the ropes
I've completed my Deck of Me card for Week 11...prompt was "what is something you do for yourself everyday?" Mine is coffee time...that time in the morning when I'm the only one awake the house is quiet and I'm enjoying my morning coffee..photo on the front side is from Flickr.com
I know kind of simple...but it's my first one...oh and yeah, those are paint chips...love all the colors on these and guess what they're free! So I pick a few up now and then when I go to the store and have been trying to figure out what to do with them...so they landed on this tag...
I also did some page kits for the SBF...
With both jobs, a third dog, science fair crap, school crap, and spring break starting Wed...and the usual day to day house, work and kid stuff, I've been missing a lot of blog days lately...and projects...I have so many projects "in waiting"....but this is what I love to do and I don't want to make it a chore, so I'm taking it one day at a time and I will not stress myself out over not blogging every day...I say this because after missing a day or two here and there and looking at the huge mess in my craft area I found myself beating myself up about it...and I had to tell myself to get a grip and let it go....(which is a lot of talking to myself )
...(there is so much flying around in my head at any given time it gets pretty crowded in there)
I'd like to start an ATC Swap...who's up? The way it would work is this
after I get a count of how many sign up I'll let everyone know and you would make that many cards, every card should have your name on it and where your from, (blog/email is optional)
we'll set a deadline and you'll have all your cards to me by that date along with the extra postage (equal to the amount that it took to send your cards to me) I will then send you back one of each of everyone else's cards...I'm thinking having them all in to me by the end of April...sound fun?...I don't want this to be stressful, I want it to be fun...but if you sign up please make sure you can follow through...sound good? I've been wanting to play more with these and the Deck of Me has me loving this size...If you can't find blank ATC's use a deck of cards and alter them...or just cut heavy cardstock to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2...so leave a comment if you want to play and I'll send you and email.... can't wait to get going!
That's it for tonight...
1. dogs...even when everything else is going crazy they love you
2. being able to do something you love and get paid to
3. our trees are starting to bud...I do believe spring is around the corner
4. setting deadlines..it's what keeps me sane and on task
5. chili on a cold wet day
Thanks for stopping by!
