Busy year

Published on January 9, 2012

Well, it’s been a very busy year and we’re only into the second week! I have been filling lots of stamp orders but still have quite a few to go. While out in the garage I did a little cleaning and organizing of some supplies – gosh that feels good (note to self – remember […]


Happy New Year

Published on January 1, 2012

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, nothing wrong, just busy is all. I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year and good luck with any resolutions that you may have made. In all honesty I didn’t really make any because I can never seem to keep them! This little picture is of our […]


Shredding-while-you-wait

Published on September 30, 2011

When I came home this evening I found this lovely scene. Apparently I left the new Connecting Threads quilt catalog within reach of a certain small dog. Although you see Tucker laying in the catalog carnage (he’s never chewed up anything, only rearranged things as seen in previous posts), you will notice little Sneaky Squeaky […]


7 months to the day

Published on September 18, 2011

Back in February I’d written a post about our dog Tucker and the fact that he had had a small seizure. When we took him to the vet back then we talked it over and because they were so infrequent decided not to put him on medication because it’s very hard on the liver. We […]


Squeaky graduates

Published on May 20, 2011

Awhile back we enrolled Squeaky in puppy school. Well I’m happy to report that he graduated! He had to do a sit stay and to come when I called him – which he did, yeah! In fact there were no remedial doggies, the whole class graduated. After which, our instructor pulled out caps (thank goodness […]


Ultimate Dog Tease (YouTube)

Published on May 10, 2011

I just can’t help myself! I saw this posted on Facebook by my friend Julee and had to share it here. Anyone that has a dog can probably relate. I giggle every time I play the video (which I’ve done at least a dozen times). I hope you giggle too. :)


Puppet Patterns by Julee Maggiora

Published on February 26, 2011

My friend Julee Maggiora created this adorable puppet pattern. It’s her first pattern, hopefully more will be coming. :) The large black and white kitty, KeeKee, on the cover was actually a puppet given to her by her uncle when she was just a baby. Well, Julee still has KeeKee Kitty – she’s holding up […]


February 2011

Published on February 21, 2011

February has been busy to say the least. As many of you know I have a rubber stamp and quilt pattern business. Even though I stay busy I usually take on contract jobs to generate income – building websites, doing illustration work, layout and design – interesting things that seem to find me. This month […]


Spot-o-sunshine

Published on January 31, 2011

Well, things have quieted down since my last post. Whew. Our big kitty Cricket loves her spot-o-sunshine and apparently Squeaky decided he’d like to warm himself as well. Cricket is by far our most mellow cat. She’s the one Tucker used to bug – lick her ears and head (her fur was so icky afterward), […]


Squeaky

Published on January 20, 2011

We’ve been talking about getting another dog for quite some time and this past weekend decided to go to the animal shelter. We came home with a new family member…Squeaky. He’s part or all Chihuahua and they said at the shelter he was about 8 months old. He weighs less than any of our cats! […]


A day in the life of Tucker

Published on August 20, 2010

What’s this? A cat? Maybe if I ignore her she’ll go away. Seriously, doesn’t she know I’m a dog! This is so NOT good for my canine reputation. Great, she’s leaving. Cat smell. Hmmm…Roll. Roll. Roll. A few more times and the other dogs will never have to know.


Cat Fishing

Published on August 11, 2010

One of our kitties had to go to the vet, nothing wrong, just a yearly check and catch up on vaccinations. Anyway, I got the carrier out and went “cat fishing”. Of course whenever one fishes one never knows what one will catch. I caught the two that were staying home while the one that […]


The box

Published on July 20, 2010

The UPS man dropped off a box yesterday, nothing for me – darn, but for my husband. He unpacked it, put it on the floor and the kitties have been playing in it ever since. It just made me laugh when I thought…we go out and spend money on some fancy kitty scratching post – […]


Tucker’s day at the vet

Published on January 28, 2010

Our dog Tucker went in for his annual vet visit last week. He’s gained a wee bit of weight – we’ll be cutting down on the cheese and Frosty Paws, but in all fairness I think anything that enters this house gains weight. So, he had a little growth, a dark mole, on his leg […]


Eeek!

Published on July 26, 2009

Our kitty Izzi loves the great outdoors – well, as great as the outdoors can be living in suburbia. I let her out in the morning and then most times go back to bed because she is a VERY early riser. Much to my husbands dismay, Izzi’s way of letting me know she wants back […]
