Dog Day of Summer & New Blog Challenge Entry

Hello sweet friends

Today I am going in a different direction.  I have spent a lot of time today giving Hercules his new look.  His fur was so fluffy and long and with it being 109 degrees outside it was time to give him a short cut. I thought it would be fun to share before and after photos.  He is such a happy furry sweetheart and of course it warms my heart to see him so happy.  I hope he makes you smile too!!

I wonder how much Hercules weighs now.  He was just under five pounds before his haircut.  I think I will have to weigh him.  

I found a new website called Cornish Heritage Farms.  In honor of Hercules I decided to enter this weeks challenge on their blog.  It's all about animals.  I just had to buy this digital image so I could make a new wall hook to hang Herc's leash on.  Check their website and you will see all the adorable digital images & rubber stamps they have.    And maybe enter the challenge too.  
Have a great day!!

Hugs and smiles,

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
