Cards & Journals

I made some cards with the St. Patrick's Day die cuts I listed in my Etsy shop. I added embellishments and glitter to the die cuts, and ribbon to the card on the bottom right. The shapes were cut with an electronic cutting machine.

My Happy List: Creativity

1. My 2015 Etsy banners were put to good use as photo ops to bring in the new year. We took one banner with us for a party at French Lick and another adorned the mantle of my friend, Anita.

Florida Horse Show

This seems to be my year of animal appreciation. I've blogged before about the traumatic dog bite I received on my face when I was five years old. After that I didn't have much use for animals in my life. But recently, opportunities have come my way that have allowed me to take a closer look at animals and learn about the joy they bring to people.

First of all, last May my friend Anita invited me to drive with her to her former home to attend her daughter's baby shower. Her two dogs, Bogo and Lenny, were very well behaved while they rode in the back seat of the truck 12 hours each way. I learned about their personalities and observed how important they were to Anita.

Then, my daughter Ashleigh purchased a rescue dog and named her Tangerine. I must admit it didn't take long to fall in love with Tangy because she is adorable, loveable, and makes Ashleigh shine. Besides that, she is my granddog.
