Moving Past a Creative Rut …

Or trying to … I haven’t been making much, but I’m starting to get a bit of the mojo back.  Last week, DH and I went to one of our old stomping grounds (bar/restaurant) to meet up with work friends.  We had a good time, and I made a card for a dear friend (who …

Thank goodness for Cute Puppies!!!

Here is the RoBo gang.  They turned 4 weeks old this week, and are loving gruel!  Look at those adorable mugs!   That’s Linda, Newton and Viola … I had some dealings with difficult people this week – at work and at home.   Why do people choose to be rude and ugly?  Anyway, the mojo …

AND ON TO RESOLUTIONS … Almost

Wrapping up Christmas 2018 with lil Sis … Who is HOME!  And she’s snuggling with the bulldog pups (Pignacious and Clyde) … As promised, a couple of cute photos of the Neo babies, just after bath time!  We’re starting the transition to kibble … baby steps!  I did a bit of coloring, starting on my …

Busy, but with down-time

We had a great week!  Lots of afternoon pool time, lots of puppy play time, some computer work and a bit of studio card time! But first … Chloe’s posse turned 7 wks old.  They are so fun to play with and too stinking cute!    If you want to see more of our bulldogs, …

And, I’m growing my skill set as a card maker … slowly.  I did some water coloring with the Peerless travel set: Played with scraps of paper for a background Revisited a couple of stamps for some copic coloring:     …

Introducing Pignacious Peg Leg Polka Dot

Or, NayNay for short … Our newest permanent member of the clan.  (DH finally said it out loud …) Not that I love Chloe’s other babies any less …    Speaking of which – here’s the Cowbell snuggling with Maybeline, and her whole posse, who turned 3 wks old today.     Auntie Ro also likes …

Tales from a card-maker wanna-be …

I had some ups and downs this week.  I’m having a drink right now to ease my latest nightmare adventure … [Cue drama …] But first … I love me some fuchsias.  I can’t write the word without the aid of spell check (what is up with that crazy spelling, anyway); I can’t keep the …

Aha! Success …

Sort-of … Well – not really … But, CLOSE ENOUGH! Today’s challenge was to bust out the Sizzix Eclips and figure out how to use it for electronically die cutting, for my next-level evolution as a stamping ‘card maker’.  Challenge accepted!  I hate the idea of paying $20-$30 for manual die cuts, and there are …

Ahhh …

RELIEF!  Got through the annual tax date with our favorite accountant.  We really cut it down to the wire this year, finishing our sorting and tallying for the 3 businesses/4 jobs just 2 short hours before our appointment (with a 45 minute drive to make!)!  YIKES! After that painful deadline, I am so not ‘adulting’ …
