My little Spook

 Spook was an April baby, but he is still so small. He's not even a foot long.
Tommy and Louie both have soft ball sized heads and it feels like a moose when they walk on you, Spook can sneak all the way to your head before you realize he got on the bed.
I worry so much about rolling over on him! LOL
He sleeps on top of Clint mostly or he shares my pillow.
I went in this morning to make the bed after Clint got up and this is how I found him!

This is him in my den sleeping in the rocker. He was sitting up leaning against the back of the chair. He fell asleep and slowing just leaned over, then tucked his head under him.
I have to laugh, he reminds me of a caterpillar all rolled up.
Can you see his tail goes up around his head.

Now I feel watched! He is my supervisor. He attacks my monitor when anything is animated or he notices the cursor moving.
He is actually trying to bug Chloe, she simply has no time for him, but he really likes annoying her. He reaches out to touch her and she turns to scowl at him. Remember those commercial "I'm not touching you" Well that's these two!

(print for the inside) The Vacant Chair

THE VACANT CHAIR Words by H.S. Washburn Music by George F. Root (1820-1895)

We shall meet but we shall miss him. There will be one vacant chair. We shall linger to caress him While we breathe our ev'ning prayer. When one year ago we gathered, Joy was in his mild blue eye. Now the golden cord is severed, And our hopes in ruin lie. CHORUS: We shall meet, but we shall miss him. There will be one vacant chair. We shall linger to caress him While we breathe our ev'ning prayer. At our fireside, sad and lonely, Often will the bosom swell At remembrance of the story How our noble Willie fell. How he strove to bear the banner Thro' the thickest of the fight And uphold our country's honor In the strength of manhood's might. CHORUS True, they tell us wreaths of glory Evermore will deck his brow, But this soothes the anguish only, Sweeping o'er our heartstrings now. Sleep today, O early fallen, In thy green and narrow bed. Dirges from the pine and cypress Mingle with the tears we shed. CHORUS

Dave got a new place

 Trying so hard to get a picture of his face, he has these wild looking eyes!

We cleaned up Moe's old place and moved Dave in, he went from an effiency apartment to a Penthouse Suite! LOL
His original place was  a 5 gallon now he's in a 40 gallon.
Clint was joking that we should find a couple of girls for him and he can keep one up at each end of this village and neither would ever run into each other! Now I know where his mind is! LOL
Dave has made laps from one end to the other since we put him in. He moves pretty fast too!
I need to go get more things for him to climb on I guess, not sure if he will like the vines.. we'll see.

Tommy and Wilbur had a hard night I think

I wasn't sleeping so at 1 am I got up and came to my room to work on cards. Tommy was int he chair to my right and Wilbur in the computer chair on the left.

Once I had noticed they were just laying there watching me. So I rubbed their heads. I'd pet them each time I got up to get something.

Sometime before 7 am they went to sleep. Card making bored them! Don't they just look like they are passed out form a rough night! LOL

Meet Dave

Yeah, it's a Hermit Crab.
He's living in my room right now, but he's going to go live int he man Cave.
He really creeps me out! He isn't even as big as a golf ball!
The cats have no interest in it. Well, Wilbur wants to lay in his habitat under the light I put in for some heat.
I am not ready to turn on the furnace! LOL But I do not want to freeze this guy his first  week here.
I have touched it, but if he touched me I'd freak!
Lizards are so less creepy!
He needed a home and yo know me... he now has one!

Meet Chloe

Here she is walking around the store here.
The vet in our strip mall has had her in a cage for a couple of months now. She really needed a home.
she's 16 yrs old, fixed and declawed.
My co-worker Matt even had her purring. she loved him! He tried to take her, but his parnets would have probably made him homeless! LOL

The Vet's office closed at noon today and I work till 5, so this is a litter box the vet borrowed me while she is at work with me. She is only using it for a bed!

This pic was taken in the Vets office when I met her. Boy she is so crabby looking!

Dresser Card

I wanted  ababy card for Carrie to use as her announcements so I searched SCS galleris. I come across the cutest little dresser card.
Got a tad bit side tracked on the baby card idea.. which turned out okay! She found premade cards and is sending them to me to assemble! Darn child!
I used aluminum foil for the mirror, turned out kinda cool!

Not sure why that drawer looks funny at the top. It looks fine sitting here. Some optical illusion in the  photo!

My New Area.

I took over the living room.. 
WOW! Can I spread out now!!
Standing by the front door looking int my room

Still standing by the front door looking to the left.. see my punches? They were the first things
I hung up!

The old Entertainment Center and 1 of the bookcases help make a wall between my room and the Dining room

Looking at the front door. See my very messy table int he center? Uff da! Well they do say a cluttered desk is the sign of a creative mind... ha ha
I took the blinds all down, boy did that brighten this room!

19 September 2011

Oh I am so lazy!

Well I am now taking over the living room!

Clint is making my den-craft room into his Man Cave

I am making the living room into my craft room-den
We have them about half switched, I am washing the walls and scrubbing the floors as I go. The living room is hard wood flooring and the den is carpet.

I am also purging my stuff as I pack it up.

The LSS is having a Rummage Sale in November and I will put more unused stuff on there. anything with dust means I really don't need it. Besides the sale gives me store credit.

I'm still keeping up with my Christmas Card Challenge on SCS,

19 July 2011

Hey there!

Didn't realize just how behind I am in updating this blog.

This Summer heat has my brains all mushy! LOL

Now for some odd reason I can not get pics to upload to my Blog.... well they are in my Splitcoast gallery
link is on the right.

Or you can go check them out here...

Clint got a puppy last week, her name is Missy
she is part Cocker Spaniel Shih Tzu and Poodle

She can walk under Joker.. that's hilarious! She is terrified of Wilbur and Tommy the big cat is scared of her.
Missy whines when Tommy moves and we're thinking that's what bothers him.
We have no idea how old Tommy is, he just showed up here one day. She chases after Zeus the got, but if he stops she runs and hides under the car.

I had such great intentions of getting pics on here today..  I do have another Shutterfly share site with pics... there is a link on the left, when you go look at the card site. It is called Just Vikki's

I Love SHutterfly, I have no limit on the number of pics I can upload.
I have to go figure out what happened to Picaso next. :(

The Robin Family

Look close.. momma is bringing breakfast.
I can get so close without disturbing them. It's awesome, I know they'll be gone soon. 
They really should consider an addition to this home!

Happy Graduation Brittany

I got told this morning at about 10 am that we needed a card today for a cousin. The party is at noon!
OMG! Seriously!? LOL

I totally CASED this one!

My friend Holly sent me a purse with a Top Note as the flap

The purse was a shorty so I tweaked that part to fit the poem I printed out.

There are magnets for the closure. One is hidden under the flower, the other is very visible once you open the purse.

 Happy Birthday Cameron! I found out after I had this one ready to go, he prefers kitties!

 This is my first card for Deb's Challenge.I made it with Clint in mind, but never gave it to him. I used Smooch and Spica for the truck. I'll have more details in my SCS Gallery.

This card was made for Clint by Laurie. Her and Tom sent him a bag of each flavor M&M's. She spoils him!!
Love the card!
