Merry Christmas All

Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more! Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer. Cheer to all Whos far and near. Christmas Day is in our grasp so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we.

See this adorable puppy face?

At appx 5 1/2 months old she has already gone into heat. Sigh. I noticed a bit of blood stains on my bed but was guessing it was from her losing her baby teeth.

Nope my girl became a woman QUICK. The vet had recommend spaying her at 7 months, but I was going to do it at 6. Now I'm going to have to watch when she goes out of heat, then wait 2-4 weeks after that.

Oh and did I mention we started training classes? A female in heat with a bunch of dogs. Awesome.

The Walking Dead

If you're not watching 'The Walking Dead' on AMC please do correct your error and seek it out now. Fabulous zombie series, which has already been renewed for a second season.

They are having a contest for a walk on role as a zombie (are you kidding me, I just peed myself a little) so I was perusing their website and found this Survival Test.

When I first took it I was answering as if one of my answers could kill me, but when I got to the end and saw you didn't die I went back and answered how I'd probably react and I am:

Emotionally Scarred Loner


Have fun - The Walking Dead Survival Test

Sunday, November 7, 2010


I recently adopted/rescued a puppy from a friend's house where she had been abandoned. Many dramas later, she's come to stay with us. And my goodness puppies are such an extreme amount of work compared to kittens, I haven't owned a dog for about 11 years now so it's been a lot of fun and frustration. She learns quickly but has a touch of the sass and stubborn which I am working on.

She's part Boston Terrier part Min Pin. I watched a Dog Whisperer episode the other night that had a segment with each breed and I can say now she definitely favors her Boston side in temperament. Min Pins are notorious barkers, but she hardly utters a peep in fact she's a very good watchdog because she only barks when she senses something outside.

So please say hi to Charley.

Lookie what I made!

I was on a step ladder and felt myself losing my balance and started teetering back and forth (teetering; that's a great word) and I didn't have anything to grab on. So I thought "well I should just jump down and land on my feet, better than falling and breaking an arm".

Yea that was the right choice.

New Simon's Cat "The Box"

Tim Holtz New Paper Stacks

Ah yes my friends I haven't even touched the Halloween in Wonderland papers, and here I am picking up a new pad, but it was just one!

**Okay I am so lying I have one more to reveal, there will be no judginess I decree!
And I quite possibly preordered a new Halloween stack and stamps ..... mumbles

When I first saw the look and variety of Tim's new papers I just new I must take a peek at them or cause myself a brain hemorrhage. I decided on the Lost and Found collection, I'm drawn to the dark and rustic colors myself. I got mine at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon so it was a great deal. They also had Vintage Shabby and Retro Grunge, Vintage Shabby was my next choice, I am a fancy little girl who loves her pastels; the Retro Grunge for some reason reminded me of a circus theme. Not that I do not absolutely love a great circus theme it's too much green for my taste.
If you have read the specifications of Tim's pad they are very different from standard scrapbooking papers and that's what I always love about Tim, he think outside the box.

Each mat stack includes:
12x 12 Designs
6x6 Designs
2x2 Snippets
Motifs 12x12
Motifs 6x6
Carres 2x2
**36 papers in all**

I have no idea what I'm doing with these these things, but they do make me squeal like a 5 year old "MINE I WANT THEM, BUT MOOOOOOOOM" Oh and I totally got some of his gears and spinners too, blah blah no one heard that blah.

I plan to stare at them tonite so they will tell me what to do with them, and if that doesn't work it's water boarding bitches.
