This isn't February ... No Way

These are a couple pictures of my pal, Clyde. He's my 4.5 pound, 16 year old Pomeranian. This is a picture that I took after we were finished with a canoeing adventure on the Brandywine. He went canoeing with Candace, Dave, and I last summer (late June).

Clyde (3-web)

He looks so happy in this shot.



He looks so funny in this shot because his backside is still wet, while his mane area had finished drying. He's also a little upset with me, because I put him on a big boulder (about 2 feet off the ground) to keep him out of the way until the canoes were on the truck and he was out of danger. I know, 2 feet up? But yes, that's enough to keep him put. He is no longer able to jump down from "high" places. And yes, 2 feet is now high for him - because of some arthritis in his limbs.

He is the cutest little guy. And so loveable. And such a wimp. But I love him all the same.

Today it's supposed to be a record high -- nearly 70 F. So, this picture of Clyde, and some of the other fun pictures from that day, reminds me that this chill will soon be over with and I'll be able to go outside, in the woods, streams, mountains without freezing.

Clyde is so cute! Dogs are amazing:) Yesterday we had a wind/dust storm... gusts up to 60 MPH. Nuts. The street lights were on because it was so dark from the dust. I was going to ride my bike yesterday but that was out of the question! Today it's sunny with a high of 75 deg. Beautiful. If only there was a lake nearby (that wasn't an alkali lake!)

I got my swap today! Yay:) I can't wait for round 2.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...

Each page has a little journal page insert:

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
