Play With Your Dog! FMS632


The sentiment on this card is oh so true! I am a total dog fan and I can't ever remember not having a dog - except for those sad times when I would lose one and then search for another to adopt.  So Shorty - Sheba - Chi Chi - Maggie - Snitty - Pudge - Abby Girl - Pepper - this post is in honor of all of you!

And this is the look I get these days when Pepper is ready to play......and I am not.....

Jen Mitchell served up another square sketch this week - I love them!  But feel free to adjust as you see fit and join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Early Spring Adventure - FMS631


Ahhhh.......spring finally! I thought this sweet nest was perfect for a friend who is celebrating a spring birthday soon and expecting a spring baby too! 

The last of the snow is finally gone here and we spent Monday up at the lake having a picnic and waiting for this......

We were fortunate to be in the direct path of the eclipse here in upstate New York.  It truly was an amazing experience.  What surprised me most was how cold it got even when the sun was only partially blocked! Fortunately the sun came out again and life returned to normal!

Square cards are always fun to make so I loved Jen Timko's great sketch - hope you enjoy it too!  Join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

No Bunny Like You....TTTC244


We were all in egg decorating mode last weekend so after a romp in the snow it was time for hot chocolate and eggs. The kids loved a new coloring spinner thingy (does it have a real name?) I got and made some colorful designs with it.

It was my turn to design the board at Tic Tac Toe this week and I was definitely thinking spring.  I went down the left side of the chart making an egg wreath using spring colors and twine.   Hope you join us!
