Time is running out!!

OK.  So I know you all have probably heard of Paper Pumpkin but in case you haven't here it is:

A cute little box filled with crafting supplies that comes once a month with a project designed just for you.  All you add is adhesive.  The first box comes with a free acrylic block for all the clear mount stamps you will get.  Each box comes with a Stampin' spot of ink just for that month's project.
As you can see in the picture, for three more days (until March 31) you can not only get your first Paper Pumpkin next month but also get a FREE set of Stampin' Up! 2012-2014 InColor Markers with your order! That's a great deal!
The best part of Paper Pumpkin is that you can cancel at any time or even skip a month if you want to. 
Give it a try!  But remember, if you want your free markers you need to order before March 31 at 11:59 mountain time which is 1:59 am on April 1st for Eastern time.  Here is the link to the Paper Pumpkin website:

Sometimes life just gets in the way...

It has been a very long time since my last post. On August 4 we lost our three year old beagle, Maxwell, to an accident.  He swallowed a piece of plastic and even after surgery just couldn't get well. We were pretty devastated.

We had a couple of trips we needed to take in August and September so we decided to adopt a dog when we got back from our travels.  Enter our new dog, Kira.

On September 27 we went out to Southside SPCA in Meherrin, VA and picked up a beautiful beagle mix.  Her name was Ellen but we named her Kira (Kira Nerys for those of you who are Star Trek fans.)  She was estimated to be 3 years old and it was obvious that she had recently had a litter of puppies. She has been a challenge but, I believe, worth every moment of effort.  She was afraid of her own shadow and very cautious with strangers.  She and I developed a bond immediately but she was afraid of my husband.  She was also afraid of confinement of any kind.  Needless to say we have been busy trying to keep up with our regular schedule and also care for this beautiful but needy dog.

She has been with us for 5 months now and has greatly improved. She and I have really become good friends and she is doing better with her confinement issues.  She is still afraid of my husband but is doing better in some small ways.  I think it will take awhile but she is bound to eventually be a great companion to both of us.


Well, I'm finally back to creating.  I didn't ever completely stop but I didn't have the time and energy to take pictures and post what I did.
