My Little Woodsman


Or rather Woodsdog.  While Dave and John mountain biked along a portion of the Rails to Trails project trail in the Poconos, Oliver and I went for a hike on the Glen Onoko trail.  It was a beautiful and very steep trail that meandered along a fast moving stream that led a very tall waterfall.

It has quite an intimidating warning sign at the base.

To give you an idea of the steepness, there were times I needed to hoist my little guy up some rocks.  Needless to say, I was glad he was wearing his harness and leash.

He's a little bold fella.

Here's a photo of the stream.  I love the flare the sun cast on my lens.


Here's a picture of the first level of the falls.  Very pretty.


But there's more!  This is the main falls.  Pretty high, but difficult to discern without a reference point...and Oliver wasn't up to cooperating.




After tooling around at the base of the falls (Oliver kept splashing leaves), we discovered a way to the top.

This was the cherry.  Such a beautiful view.


I would not have found it so challenging except for all the new fallen slippery leaves.  The leaves posed much anxiety on the way down when we "lost" the trail and found ourselves essentially slip n sliding our way down quite a distance.  It was almost a Bear Grils moment.  Oliver got quite anxious and actually was growling with nervous impatience because I wouldn't let him go when we were taking a ride down the leaves. I think he thought he could do a better job for himself.

Like I said, my little woodsman.

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!
