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.

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
