Tribute to Hercules

Hello my dear sweet friends -

Hope you are all doing well.  

I am amazed I am finally back on blog land.  I have tried so many times to make a new post but couldn't find the buttons I needed through the G+ arrangement.  So frustrating and finally decided to ask for help from my friends - and once I did - I find what I need hidden in the mix of other buttons.  I just hope I can find it again and wish I knew why I had been struggling.  I am usually good at figuring this stuff out but then had to put it aside again due to family stuff (see below).
Anyway - problem solved (hopefully).

I first wanted to make a post about my best furry friends Hercules.  He has been by my side almost non-stop for 13.5 years and sadly he passed away on Sunday. I miss him so much!!  I knew I would lose him one day however my prayer has always been for me to be with him when its his time to go to doggie heaven.  I feel so blessed my prayer was answered even though it was painful to see him slip away (very peacefully though).  Emotionally I am hanging in there - it helps to be with my daughters and grandsons.  I would do just about anything if I could have him back but since that won't happen I just need to figure out how to move on day by day.  Hercules only weighed 4.5 pounds but his heart was HUGE and his impact on my life was PROFOUND.  He touched the heart of every person he met and made a lasting impression.  Oh the impact this little guy had on people - you would have thought he was one of the Beatles or Elvis Presley.  I do however believe he had the strongest and most profound life changing impression on me.  My heart is broken and at the same time I am so thankful and grateful that God had created this little guy just for me.  I miss him terribly!!

  3. Laine, It's so painful to lose a part of the 'family' and I mourn with you. What a cutie he was. He'll fill your memories and, as time passes, there will be more sweet memories and fewer painful ones. May God bring you comfort. Hugs, NC

Cinderella goes Camo

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…
