This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

I haven't abandoned my blog.....

I'm sorry that it has been so long since I posted something crafty. I am working on some cards and I will post them soon. This summer has gone by so fast! Today was the first day of the new school year here is our county. Remember when they used to ask us, "what did you do on your summer vacation?" Well, I didn't do a lot but we did have a house guest. This is Toby, my brother-in-law's little dog. We had the pleasure of caring for him while they traveled to Paris and Budapest this past month. Isn't he a little cutie?

Well I don't suppose I can blame him for my lack of creativity, but I felt like I had to post something here for your entertainment. Okay, now everyone say awwww........  Now if that one didn't do it, how about this one?

I promise some new creations soon. I have lots of new stamps and some gorgeous new paper from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini. Until then, thanks for visiting!

I have been busy cleaning out closets and getting stuff boxed up to give to charity. Good for them and good for me. Several boxes were picked up today and it feels so good to get this accomplished. Although there is so much more to go, at least I made a good start. I did manage to finish a card during one of my many breaks. This one could be for a wedding or an anniversary.
