Hideaway Pond


It's another beautiful day here in my little corner of the world!
I took the dogs on a walk I hadn't done in a long time.  Deep in the middle of the woods is a serene little pond that is home to all sorts of critters, from the micro to the rather large.  We saw several geese, a couple ducks, and just caught a glimpse of a few deer before they skirted off ahead of my little Oliver, who was playing Napoleon, yapping like he could take them on!


Over the weekend, I spent some time getting ready for a couple events I have coming up...one of them happens on Thursday night over in the Unity forum on Splitcoaststampers.  Another wonderful release you'll be tickled pink to get your hands on!  You won't want to miss it!

Oh, and my posts wouldn't be complete without a snapshot of at least one of my fur babies.  This is a picture of Oliver helping me pick out yarn on Saturday at a craft store.  He was all snuggled in the cart trying to stay calm while Layla was all over the place curious about what was going on.  I couldn't get a picture of her because she wouldn't be still.  You can almost see the tension in Oliver's little eyes...because he really was trying to catch some bliss!

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.

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 …
