We have a house guest this weekend. Her name is Honey and she’s my mom’s dog. Ordinarily I tolerate her (she’s big on barking and generally being annoying), but I’m not a big fan – that’s unusual since I’m a major lover of dogs. Yesterday my girls were sooooo convincing that we should keep her over for the weekend when grandma went home ‘just to see’ how having a little dog would be. They’re in heaven, and Honey is being good – she mostly sleeps (protected by baby gate) in my studio. The interesting thing is once my mom left she became this obedient, sweet, SILENT, loveable dog. We’re cool – and she makes a lovely creative companion. It’s nice having a well behaved dog in the house!!
I am working on a (hybrid) scrapbook page and was totally frustrated that I couldn’t get something going last night. Then this morning I woke up, had “I KNOW!” moment, and now am hand cutting a 4 x 12 strip of damask pattern with my trusted Fiskars craft knife (give away coming later!)
The key to hand cutting success is just a little at a time. Keep walking away and you won’t get bored or sore. Still- I can’t wait to finish it so I can put it together.
That’d be bits of the Scarlet Lime September kit I’m working with this weekend. (sigh) I may set up a fall fashion photo shoot for the girls so I can hurry up and use this little card. It’s sooooo cute. Speaking of cute, I have decided to give this away.
This Heidi Grace jar traveled everywhere with me as a founding fisk-a-teer for 2 years. It went up on my shelf and has stayed ever since. I’m thinking it needs a new home! In the bottom are ‘vintage’ (circa 2006) Heidi Grace ribbons and then I’ve piled in all kinds of cute stuff – buttons, brads, sequins, clips, chipboard, felt… lots of cute! If you’d like to give this cutie patootie jar a home just leave a comment here!
