Pin It



Ahhhh, peace. I hope you're feeling some! I was on a bit of a Wild Wasabi kick last weekend, it's great for holiday cards and looks good mixed with so many other colors. Here it's mixed with some patterned paper from the DCWV from Joann's. I'm trying to make myself use some of those big stacks of paper that I can never resist at 50% off! The chipboard bird is also from a Joann's 50% off huge chipboard pack.

On a funny note, I couldn't resist taking a picture of Nick the other night during a bit of animal cruelty on his owner's part! He went in for grooming last Friday, excellently timed with a cold front hitting, and he was soooo cold and shivering when he got home. I remembered this little coat I bought him several years ago from a Christmas trip home to Missouri, but it was too large for him and I never got around to returning it. (Does anyone else have a closet full of stuff you never get around to returning?)

Isn't he the cutest? The front part is too long and seriously hampered his walking. Wish I could have got an action shot of him walking, my camera does make movies, maybe I'll have to figure out how to do that. I decided I could hem the front and it might work (given my track record of completing alterations, dh says he's not holding his breath waiting for this to happen...he has some pants with a stapled crotch seam to prove his point!) Anyway, I coined him Sherlock Nick (he just needs the little tweed hat) or Mr. Barky von Schnauzer (don't you love that Petsmart commercial?!)

Okay, I hope you have a terrific and peaceful Tuesday!
