Can You Feel It?



I absolutely LOVE jogging during this time of year...not only because the temperatures are perfect for it, but because everytime I go out through the woods I can FEEL the earth growing. The earth shakes it's cobwebs and dormant spirit and revives itself...Something my own spirit desires.



I can see the same energy in my little furry family.

Today....Clyde.

I've mentioned my little guy before...he's a 17 year old Pomeranian. As Dave and I were heading out the door, he stepped out of his kennel asking to go. He's a funny pooch...years ago when I was jogging marathons and doing triathalons, he trained with me on the runs. He loved it, as long as the temperatures were reasonable. So, I became sensitive to his signals...when he wanted to go or wanted to "sit it out".

Today, he wanted to go....AT 17, mind you...isn't that like almost 120 in dog years!? AND....he's got congestive heart failure so I have to be very careful...but I could not resist his little face.

He knows Spring.

So I took him and we mostly walked, but he was so happy and spunky throughout our venture. He even ran ahead of me a couple times, stopped (and coughed) and looked back at me, like...."hey, yes, you....Loser....Catch up!"

We...Clyde and I...had a great little 3 mile walk/jog.

He knows it. He hears it growing out the patio door.

Warm...Growth....Life Anew

It's no wonder that our spirits lift when warmth spreads across the region and new growth happens...everywhere.

Beautiful description - spring is definitely in the air! (And I do believe dogs are happiest when out on a walk- yay for Clyde at 17!)

Oh, this makes me tear up. Love to Clyde.

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!
