It's Fur Ball Time again!

Jake the pug finally won the costume contest! His owner spends hours making his costumes every year! It's like Susan Lucci being nominated 900 times for the daytime Soap awards and she never wins!
This puppy was pooped before the party even started!
"Can you hear me now?"
This cutie looked a little hot in her coat,
 but she was smiling the entire time!
This little man sat at our table, what a cutie!
She was the belle of the ball!
Cinderella had the most beautiful costume!
Her evil step-sisters were to hipper to hold still so their loss!
These two would not put their new puppy down!
Nice to see that their parents are teaching them the responsibility of owning a pet!
All that getting ready just pooped this pooch out!
Talk about a face you could love! 
It's a free-for-all but so much fun to watch!

This is my mom and Jakes owner.
It's a new tradition for mom and I to go every year!
I missed out last year so I was determined to
go this year!
True love! Mama loves her baby!
"Was that a table for two, please follow me..."
Turn out the lights, the party's over........
What a wonderful Valentine's Day celebration! 
I hear they had record numbers this year! 
Way to go to all the volunteers who contribute their time and money! This is one event I never plan to miss!!

Twas the night before Christmas..............


Twas the night before Christmas and all thru the house,
Not a creature was stirring, including Verna's drunk spouse.
So they girls got together and made up a plan,
How to take him off the "Naughty List" with a fryin' pan.
They elected Granny cause' she's got the swing,
She was 3rd place winner in the pie pan fling!
So she snuck down the stairs in her gown and cap,
Hoping he was sleeping with a long nice nap.
He never knew what hit him, but he won't be missed,
She knew Santa would love to take him off his Naughty list!!
Merry Christmas!

My Cat friendly Bridal Tree.

This is my Colleen Moody doll that I made at Terri Brush's Art Camp. Of course I couldn't wait to use her on my Christmas tree this year. I used this same theme a couple of years ago when I had kittens and it turned out ok. Well, we have two 8 month old kittens again so I had to put up a tree that they can't break everything.........I hope!
She looks so pretty with lights under her skirt.
 
Just some old wedding photos to complete the look.
It's amazing how cute you can make a really cheap tree!
 
I didn't want to spend too much on this small tree in case they destroyed it.
 Ta-Da!
Another angle.
I hope you all enjoy the season and enjoy your time with loved ones. Hubby and I will be here in Fort Worth, staying close to home and having a very laid back easy holiday.
Thanks for stopping by! 
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

My bags are packed for 2014!

I have decided that the year 2014 will be my year to roam. It's no secret that 2013 has not been a good year, so, I am looking forward to 2014 with open possibilities and hopefully invitations to visit my beautiful creative friends that live far away. 
Through the magic of Facebook I have been able to keep in touch!
Gone are the days when we would talk for hours, multi-tasking while we talk, trying not to tangle yourself in the phone cord while solving all the world's problems in one phone call!
SO, I am calling my friends, looking up events and marking my calendar to make sure I see everyone I can possibly see!
Now my freshman roommate in college may disagree, 
but I'm a clean house guest! 
I hang up my towels and I'll even do dishes! 
I promise not to bring too much luggage, is 4 too many?
And, if I start to drive you crazy just give me the boot!
This is my 2014 motto. 
What I hold deepest in my heart are my friendships.
I want to enjoy every step of my journey laughing and holding hands with those I love.

And, when it's time to pack up and go, it will be with a heart and mind filled with fun and long lasting memories!
So, keep me in mind when you have an event in your area or if you just want a visit let me know!
Sometimes you just have to invite yourself or,
 you'll never get there!
Happy Holidays to you all.

Ann Perry's Winter Wonderland

I KNOW! Isn't it wonderful! 
I walked in the front door of Ann Perry's shop, saw this and clod-hopped over everyone in my way to get to this piece. I know those women were thinking, what tornado just blew through here!
Just me being a brat and doing what it took to get this piece!!
This is one of the pieces that my friend Charlene Gray found, 
isn't it adorable? She also found a very old wicker baby carriage that no one else could see because it was up real high on a chest. 
Well Miss Long-Legged saw that and snatched it up, SCORE!
"fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la...."
"Oh the weather outside was frightful, 
but inside was pure delightful.." 
These were not for sale........yet!


Yes please!


And, this was the end of our shopping trip! Many thanks to Charlene for driving the four hours down and back, and, many thanks to Ann Perry for her great hospitality!!

Art Camp with Terri Brush

I know you've been wondering, where the heck is that woman? I wish I could say that I have had a summer long adventure but sadly, it's just the opposite! I've been sweltering in this Texas heat and I have had a pretty boring summer. 
HOWEVER, the summer is over and it was time to party with the girls. Going to Terri Brush's Art Camp was just the ticket! There were 40 wonderful, creative women who attended and 
we all had so much fun!
This was the first project, a tree topper doll with Coleen Moody. I LOVED her class! We all did! The loud chatter was soon replaced with the excitement......and loud clatter! 

This was Coleen's example, and this was what I decided to make..... a bride. I know, I just couldn't help it. But, I think she turned out pretty cute!
This was the second class with Natalie. We got our "spooky on" making a witch's hat that lights up. It was hilarious watching and listening to all of us covered in Modge podge, gossiping, snacking and maybe having a little wine. We were slopping glue, glitter and paint all over the place. Lord what a mess we made! I'm sure Terri and the crew were cursing us as they tried to clean it all up.
This was my version of the Witch's hat.
I think it turned out cute!
Gracie came in for a closer look!
Thanks for stopping by, I promise to post more, 
I have just been a lazy bones and using Facebook, bad blogger!
Big Texas hugs coming your way!

It's been 20 years!

It’s been 20 years I can hardly believe it,
Time goes by quickly, a year seems like minutes!
I loved you then, adored you more.
The day we wed on that beautiful shore.
Our lives have changed in good ways and bad,
You’re still the best friend that I’ve ever had.
I hope your heart will stay with me,
You’re in it for life,you’ll never be free!
Thank you for your love, your kindness and your strength,
I know to help me you’ve gone to great lengths.
Know in my heart you wear a crown,
For you my love knows no bounds.

This is part of the mushy letter I gave hubby today, wow 20 years! How we've changed and endured!! Happy Anniversary to all you love birds out there, Thanks for letting me share!
