Bud is Back

So, here's the update... we are home... took up 14 hours to retrieve Bud, my granddog, from Texas. We got back last night and introduced him to Cappi & Kitta, reintroduced him to Callie & Abigale. He slept well at the foot of my bed. He's gone out in the yard and done his business and had a walk around the neighborhood. Currently he seems to want to be where ever I am. today that is not too much of an issue but as I work crazy stupid this week it will be starting tomorrow. When I put him out in yard with Cappi she laid in her usual spot & he whined at the gate. Now, whether that is due to his recent upheaval in circumstances or nerves or what I am as yet unclear. He will get to go to the beach & get to go shopping for some personal possessions later. Would rather a Gentle Leader than the harness if he'll take to it. If I can find a 24" collar, he'll be getting a new one. He needs some today of his own, the kind Cappi doesn't like. He is a chewer so will need some rawhides. His vet appointment with Dr Hunt of Veterinary Mobile Medical Services​ is Friday. I do not have a current weight but he does not seem too very heavy, at least for his size. Exercise & our daily walks should solve any issues there. Cappi has snapped at him twice... once last night over a toy & once this morning when he landed his big foot on her while trying to play. He's twice her size and not nearly as old as she so he's going to have to learn to be gentle as she has some age related issues of her own. Blessings of love & harmony, prayers, etc always appreciated.

2 UPCOMING excited!!

For those of you not yet aware...Michael's has hired me to teach paper crafting classes... only a couple each month but what fun!!
I was there shopping and an employee approached me and asked me if I worked there ("No") and then followed that with "Do you want to?"
when she told me it was a part time paper education , I changed my mind!!

Please feel free to share this INFO with any one you think might be interested in attending these or other workshops.
I've not been given web access to create and/or update my classes on the internet yet so word of mouth is my only avenue at this time.
10/7 is the $15 papercrafting class

I'll be making things with the Envelope Punch Board (matchbox, bows, basket, greeting card,boxes, etc) and showing you ways to use it besides for making envelopes.

THINGS TO BRING: double sided paper (if you have it) 2 sheets
also bring adhesive of choice, bone folder, punch board if you have one

I WILL BRING: punchboard (they are available for purchase)
extra pieces of DSP (one & 2 sided)


10/28 is the $15 mixed media class THIS CAN BE A MESSY CLASS, FYI

I will be demonstrating different mediums and layering techniques to create a cover for a journal or a way to use canvas.

Class syllabus calls for a Canson 7x10 Mixed media journal but you can bring one of your own as the techniques will work on journals, canvas, etc.
Regular weight cardstock/paper will not work as the BASE, must be heavier weight like cover stock, chipboard or watercolor paper (bc it holds up wet)

THINGS TO BRING: Journal (see above), any acrylic paints & stencils you are fond of using. Also going to play with modeling paste & gel mediums so if you have something you've been wanting to try out, bring with you & I will show you ways to use it. If you have a palette knofe or an expired credit card, you'll want to bring it.

This is your project so you are not limited to the items the syllabus suggests,... always remember that!!

I WILL BRING: Chipboard, paints, stencils, modeling paste, gel mediums
