Precious Pup

I got these pics in an email - (photographer and source unknown) They made me smile so I thought I would share the Love☺

My Scoobie Doo looked just like him as a baby. And yes this boy would have definitely climbed right on in.
In other news... I did finish up a new baby dragon this last weekend  but I can't show you just yet. He is on his way to Germany and the recipient hasn't seen him yet. Don't want to ruin the surprise.

Latest weather & THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY

Image
Just thought I would share our latest weather.  AAARRRGGGG! If you've been around a while, you know I love Alaska. I just love it ALOT MORE in the summer;~) Keep in mind that we had NO snow on the ground when I went to bed last night.
Not because it had melted, mind you. It has been in the single digits or minus for the last week. No. We didn't have any snow because it blows away almost as soon as it stops coming down. In our neck of the woods in the winter the wind BLOWS.
So...when I got up and looked out the window this morning we had  about 10" of new snow, by the time I got home from work the snow was trying to blow  up over the hood of my FULL SIZE Tahoe as I was coming up the drive way. Honey estimates about 15" so far and it's still snowing like crazy. They predict another 4" before it "tapers off" tonight. I'm just very thankful that I don't have to drive anywhere for the  next two days, today was horrible. On the other hand Honey is quite excite…

some new things

Image
I have accomplished a few crafty things in the last few weeks, just haven't had much chance to post cuz Honey has recently found a "Snow Machine Forum". Alot of chatting about and photos of snow machine  (or in most parts of the country - snowmobile) adventures. So he has been spending a bit more time on the computer than he used to, which means I spend less☺ The good part - more crafty accomplishments. The bad part - less show and tell. I was really getting in a funk about winter and I was crocheting  neckwarmers and wristwarmers like mad, so I decided maybe I should stop the winter wear for a while and think summer. I found this pattern for a summer "Straw Hat" and knew it would  be perfect for my sister.  She loved it so much she sent me a picture☺ Isn't she cute?  I want her hair. I also found a pattern for a bag that looked cool First let me say, I didn't think it would be so hard to take a picture of a bag.

This was my experiment so I followed the pattern exactly …

Update on OWOH..

Image
I honestly hoped to have photos of my "door prizes" much sooner that this.  Sometimes having a 'day job' can be so inconvenient. LOL!
So here they are... (I have added them to the original post also)
In honor of this being the fifth and final OWOH, I am drawing five names.

The first name drawn will receive this guy
He is holding a little plaque commemorating the event, but  it is removable. Then he just looks like he wants a hug☺

Thesecond will receive this
A "steampunk" heart pin and a sterling silver wire-wrapped lampwork glass ring. (Lampwork by Juls☺)
The third person chosen will receive this
A little collection of polymer clay leaves and buttons. The leaves are perfect for jewelry making, scrapbooking, mixed media whatever! And the buttons are great for... well... button things. LOL!
The fourth person will receive this
Polymer pendant with glass beads and freshwater pearls.
And last but not least, the fifth person drawn will receive
Little "Wip"
(Despite wh…

One World One Heart 2011

As usual I don't seem to be able to follow simple directions. LOL! Apparently I am supposed to announce the winners on the 17th. It shall be done. ☺
~~ Comments are now closed. ~~ So I may draw the winners!
It's here again! This is the fifth and final  One World One Heart. What is OWOH you may ask? It is one GIANT blog party hosted by the very talented, energetic and gracious Lisa Swifka of  "A Whimsical Bohemian".
The idea is to travel around the blogosphere and visit
new people and possibly make new friends
with the added bonus of possibly winning a "door prize" from one
(or more) of the blogs you visit.

 VERY LONG list of blogs participating this year.
