Cottage Critter Picture

Finally!! I have been trying to get a picture of my fox, here at work, for what seems like forever. For two years, a fox has had her babies on the property and every once in a while, I will see the mama scurry across the yard. Today, I got so lucky and got a picture while she was sitting up on these concrete blocks. The picture is not that great but I got it none-the-less!

Scrap Progress - July '09

I thought I would share some recent scrapbook pages that I have completed. Enjoy!!

This one plays tribute to the infamous DMV! Corbin is getting his learner's permit.

This one shows Chris and Corbin making caramel apples one fall day.

Pumpkins, Skeletons and Bats - Oh My!

He's still mine after 19+ years!


A Scrap-tastic Weekend!

I got to spend the weekend in Columbia with my friends scrappin' away at The Stamping Place. We had a wonderful time - as usual. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but that's ok. Just spending time with friends is a big part of the trip anyway. It could be the fact that there were no cheese puffs - gotta have cheese puffs when you scrap!! LOL!

Here are a few pictures, compliments of Cindy from the Stamping Place:

Here I am posing for the camera. So happy to be away from work, relaxing with my glue, scissors and paper!

Here's Irene, my table buddy! Irene can really "produce"!

And last, but not least, is my good buddy Renee and her Mom. Renee is my blast from the past - when scrapbooking wasn't even cool

Thomas the Turkey Update

The 4th of July is just around the corner and I'm so glad. I'm ready to kick back with some Bar-B-Q, my stitching, my scrapbooking and who knows what else! I'm just ready to enjoy the time off from work.

Here's an update on Thomas. He now has a couple of tail feathers so at least he's not going to topple over. He's also standing on solid ground and that's always a plus! LOL! I don't have much more to do so I may actually get him finished over the holiday weekend.
I am also reading Janet Evanovich's newest release in the Stephanie Plum series, Finger Lickin Fifteen. I got really lucky this time and was the first person on the "sign-up" sheet at the library. That has never happened before!! The book, so far, is good. A little predictable but that's what makes these books so enjoyable. I have to say, Chapter 13 is my favorite thus far. I always find myself laughing out loud whenever the characters are gathered together at Stephanie's parents home for dinner.

This past Saturday was my one year anniversary in blogville. I never would have thought I would still be here posting and sharing photos a year later. I don't have many followers but I enjoy documenting details and keeping this record for reference. It makes me happy and that's all that counts!

If I don't post again before the holiday, I wish everyone a wonderful 4th of July. Reflect on your freedoms that we all take for granted and remember our troops. Most of all, God bless America!
