Last night ended eventfully. Right before I was shutting down (a little after midnight), I heard my cat growling at the back sliding glass door.

We have a fox in our neighborhood and I thought she was growling at him as he made his way through our back yard. When I turned the light on and looked outside, I was greeted by a young-ish rather LARGE German Shepard. He seemed like a teenager dog to me anyway. Very bright eyes, trusting, and friendly.



And...He really wanted in my house. I thought he was my neighbor's dog (they have two Germans) and thought he was a little lost thinking my house was his house....So, silly me, I let him in. The cats scattered...quickly I should add, because I don't think they have ever seen a dog bigger than them (Remember - Clyde is 4.5 lbs - smaller than any of my three cats!). Clyde of course became quickly concerned, because, well...he's an appetizer to a dog that size.

This dog was really curious. So, he's following Clyde and running around the first floor...and I'm trying to figure what to do with him. I didn't want to just let him back outside, because I was afraid, if he was lost, he would start to get more anxious, not pay attention to what he's doing, and end up getting hit by a card (if he made his way out of my neighborhood.) I got Clyde's leash and put it on him. I'm really glad dogs that large are usually very friendly. It always amazes me how strong they are. He took ME where he wanted to go! I was finally able to calm him down a bit and then checked his collar.

Yay, he had tags with a phone number. I called and the owner was thankful I had found him. He said he'd be right over and pick him up. We (the dog and I) went outside to wait. Amazingly, BEFORE the car turned onto my street, I could tell the dog KNEW his owner was coming, because he became very alert. And just after his ears perked and he quieted, a turned onto the street.

The owner was very nice. Said that he ran off when he saw some deer running through the neighborhood. And he was not able to catch him. We laughed about the whole thing and I went inside to clean up the mud that was trampled in the house

And made my way to bed.

Late night adventures with animals...FUN.

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 w

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! To start at the beginning of th

Growing in Unity - Day 5 {Be Your Own Beautiful}

Well, here we are, my last post for the week!  It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December. I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day! I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend.  She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad.  And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago.  It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer).  So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she i
