Fun in White Clay Creek

My favorite part of the day is when I get the opportunity to take my little dogs into a nearby park to frolic in the woods.  This trail is a nice and lengthy 3.1 miles for their little legs, giving them a little exercise and fun.  It's particularly nice when I get a chance to do it in the morning, because there are very few other folks around, making for a mostly nice and quiet adventure.  [Oliver really loves to bark like crazy at anything that makes a noise...but especially the mountain bikers and other runners...very annoying]

For those questioning my love for my dogs...Not to worry, the dogs are leashed.  I photoshoped out the leashes in many of these shots.

There are two fields that when there aren't many people around, I'll let them run free and off their leashes.  Here Layla was taunting Oliver trying to get him to chase her.  They get SO happy when they see that we're approaching this field, because they know I'm gonna set them free.


What a great smile Layla has, yes?


Oliver is so used to the camera now that all I have to do is say, "Sit" and "Look here".  He is such a great poser!




Near the end of our walk, the clouds were really moving in and these GIANT turkey vultures were looking for a snack!

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.

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 …
