Two in…..

one week! My, how nice to have a few minutes of crafting time again.  Puppies are a lot of fun and well…..more work, than I remembered 18 years ago. 

Here’s my little gift tag, the back will hold a nice Starbucks coffee gift card, love giving these kinds of gifts.

The adorable giraffe is part of a set….that was an awesome giveaway for linking up over at Imagine that digistamp (Kris’s place). Thank you Kris, this set is so sweet, many uses and well….just so stinking cute. 

Just darling… and best of all …..colored in, so, I just made a print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo, easy peasy, works great for Mommies of 6 month old puppies, lol.

Now for a few updated pictures of Rambo, he’s growing so quick and I like it. He graduates on the 17th of this month from his Intermediate classes, woot, woot.

1st stream he’s been in, he followed a few Golden Retrievers down the hill into the stream, good thing I packed lots of towels.

Oh course….guess who loves icky pond water??? Can we say ewwwww!

He kept looking and finally went for it, this was the 2nd slide, first one was only a few feet high. Mom called a big NO on the spiral slide ;).

He’s quite the busy little guy, loves to keep going and try new things. We’re having so much fun with him even though sleep comes really early, I’m ready to pass out about 7:00 pm each night.

So for now, guess this is it, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Puppy Training 101

Greetings Crafty friends and all that stop on by.  Its been a non stop journey of puppy training over the past few months.

Just when Rambo thinks he has me trained…..I figure out something new to confuse him.

We have a very long way to go, a few things taking more time to get correct.

This week Rambo graduates from his first puppy class and then on to the next set. I’m not sure if I’ll graduate with him, grins.

Funny thing, when the trainer uses him to show the class something new, Rambo is the perfect student. With this being said, it leads me to believe, “I” may be the one needing training not him lol.

So, after turning 60 coughing… I mean 35 this summer, something inside me screamed “I need a PUPPY”! Crazy or not?  I say not, its been so much fun!

Here’s the boy 4 months old!


Shhhhh baby sleeping!

I hope soon to be back crafting as he’s settling in more each day freeing me up a little more.

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

As promised…

some pics of my newest addition. Goodness grief, loving this little guy, he’s smart as smart, he had me trained the first week.
Please meet….Rambo…..Our newest German Shepherd boy.

He’s keeping me busy, so my online and blogging/crafting is still on hold for a bit. Thank you everyone for dropping by and leaving the beautiful comments. I’ve been doing most blog comments via email for now.
Have a great one, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Happy New Year to all, and thank you all for the Christmas wishes. Life has been full of events and projects.   Trying to keep up with all the things breaking, and medical, before and after Christmas into the New Year, glad all the worst is behind us.  Now to enjoy a stress free New Year lol.

In the midst of all the chaos, we will soon have a new furbie, so my days will have less crafting for a few weeks during the transition process. I’m very excited for the arrival of my new helper.

Well, off I go to eye place, my lens fell out of my glasses New Year’s Eve, perfect timing, one more thing to end off the old year, enjoy, blessings, Lori m

Merry Christmas….

Hi everyone, here’s hoping life is great to all.

I’ve been prepping for the holidays little by little and managed a few craft gifts. I see Google made some changes since my last log in and now I can’t find where to upload pictures.  Looks like I’ll have to figure this out later on. So for now off I go.

So for now I’ll leave you with another beautiful fall tree photo, enjoy.

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

away from blogging and crafting. Life just gets in the way from time to time.  I’ve been doing more picture taking than crafting. It’s easier on my hands snapping a photo rather than trying to paper piece things right now. Also, gets me out to enjoy the fall colors which are just gorgeous.

There not quite as bright as last years, maybe by this weekend or next, still very pretty to see.
So I pray that everyone is staying safe with all the weather changes around and staying healthy as flu season here has hit early.
Off to sleep for me now, blessings and hugs to all, many thanks for all the beautiful blog love you all leave me.  Lori m
