Crafting and Doggy Day Care

Dogs on the Run!

I worked on a couple of little craft projects today. Here are the boxes, but the pics aren't great. My Camera is okay, but hard to focus on smaller stuff (these are 4 inches in dia.) But anyway, here they are and they've been good practice for the cake topper I'll do shortly.
This one was made from Vintage wallpaper I bought at the Girls Night In at Faded Elegance last Saturday. In the background it says "Happy Mothers Day."
I also made one with a bit more color. I just put a note on it that says "Garden Treasures."
They've been fun to do and I'm learning a lot!!

We also had a "guest" today, My dog Shadow's brother. His name is Moose, and he iIS one!!! He's been here for about 4 hours while dog started working on the new Arbor he's building. My dogs are going to sleep good tonight!!!

Somethimes I think I'm in Blogger Hell!

I attempted to post earlier today, okay it was around noon, so maybe the system was too busy, but neither my post nor my pics surfaced, so, once again, I'm going to give it a try!!

It's been a busy week!! I've been gathering bits and pieces for a Wedding Cake topper for Lauren and her betrothed Andrew (not MY Andrew, but Andrew, nonetheless). I'm going to attempt to make them a mixed media topper with piano/music paper/vintage scrap paper and the likes! I'll attempt to share a visual as it develops. BUT I've learned a lot in the hunting and gather process and at the very LEAST I'll share some fun sight and online stores where I got my materials............more to follow.

As the weather permitted I worked in the yard and fixed up my sitting porch on the front of the house,,,,,,,,,here are some pics of the fun, the pretty and one poor plant that ,,,,,,,,God help us, might still pull through!!

Also, I'm going to post a picture of my sad arbor,,,,may she rest in peace! She's done her darndest to hold up Hysteria,,,,,,,,my Wisteria!! But she's not looking so good after Snow and an over abundance of Hysteria. My friend Doug is going to build a new pergola and SOON before Hysteria starts to sprout her wings!

Hang in there as I refine this blog, it's starting to get better,,,,,and I'm hopping to work out my quirks!!

Easter Parade and Bonnet Contest

In spite of the un-springlike weather yesterday, the Easter Parade and Bonnet Contest went on! I got some pretty good pictures, but then my memory card filled up and I didn't have a chance to delete and old stuff!

It was hectic, but fun to be in charge, although I'll probably do it again next year!

Here's a few photos, but I hope to get more from the Herald photographer.

Enjoy the Day!
