I made him repeat it in front of witnesses LOL!
We brought our first Westie puppy home within two weeks. The kids and I were in heaven!
Four weeks later, my brother - who was my only sibling, passed away. I swear, on many subsequent mornings, the only reason I got out of bed was to care for that puppy. She truly helped me heal.

God works in strange ways, eh?
thankfully god does work those miracles and I am sure that the animals are angels.

I actually had time to make a couple of cards today since I wasn't sitting here stalking the prize patrol! Now to do a bit of school with the kids this afternoon.

Ahhh, our doggie is a rescue. when we took him from his foster family it was heart wrenching. they were taking it pretty hard and told us they wouldn't be able to do it again, it was just too difficult to part with the dog after taking care of it for so long.

Ok, Renaissance lesson taught and kids are off to swim practice with their papa. Now, on to tackle my stamping area. It is such a mess that I'm having a hard time creating anything (not that it is stopping me ) Every time I let it get this bad I tell myself "NEVER AGAIN" but then I let things slide

Austin to Houston is 3ish hours drive and I'm really hoping she got a nice lunch and did a little shopping.

ETA - Doh! I read that as how long Lydia will be gone for some reason. I wonder how she's doing, too. And I still hope she had a nice lunch and did some shopping.

And I'm hoping Bobra is a good traveller! We had some cats who really loved coming in the car and would always come on holidays with us, or even just for a ride to the beach when we went for a morning swim. But I'll never forget picking up a cat from the vet's for my mother, and the silly thing howled and cried the whole way back in the car. Not a fun drive, that one. She was a sweet little rescue cat.

my sweet little Memphis was a howler. So were most of the cats I had so I seldom took them on the road.

Lydia's probably having a hard time letting go of the kitty. That's a long drive, I only been to Texas once & it felt like it took a whole day to cross it.

Driving all the way across Texas is torture. Especially if you start at one of the edges! Austin is happily in the middle so it's not so bad.

We've done looooooooong TX drivin' often! The drive to Houston from Austin isn't bad.....but for the reason Lydia had to do it I'm sure it was very difficult. More HUGZ cuz you just can't ever get enough!!!!

Well it looks like there is less chatter today than yesterday. I guess it is not as fun with Lydia away. I am really hoping to spend some time in my craft room tonight, but I am not sure it is going to happen. It has been so long. I basically haven't made anything since the end of these challenges. I miss it.

You should check out the daily challenges, that's always fun. I try to do those when I can.

All of your cute kitties are making me wish we could have a cat too! We adopted one when the boys were small and then it became very obvious my oldest had a terrible allergy to cat hair....we all cried when we had to give "Rhubarb" back after a week!

It's funny Sabrina. It's much easier to have a dog ride in a car than a cat that's for sure unless the cat is caged. My Ellie refuses to sit in my car, plus she's a bad passenger too. She shakes so bad when we come to a stop, she's hitting the dash.

Emily, Connie's suggestion is a good one...the daily challenges are a great way to get inspiration and to "meet" a lot of people - it was how I made friends and got to know people! Be careful though, once you start doing them, you get addicted!

I miss it.

If you like the idea of making cards to benefit others, you could check out this ongoing challenge here: Cards for a Cause Forum - Donating New, Used & Recycled Greeting Cards - Splitcoaststampers

Been stalking but not posting - so many things to respond to, but in particular about commenting in the galleries. Some of us hide out in our caves and do everything except upload on an iPad because my computer is in the part of the house where my refrigerator lives - also known as DH. and SOME of us ( grin) can't type anyway, so commenting is a small form of torture! And as someone said, I sometimes feel like my comments are just kinda flat. That said, I LOVE getting comments and I will try ever so hard to do better!

Now to say thanks to everyone posting pet pictures, I would but can't from iPad and it's cold in other part of house. I have four kitties, all rescues. Oh, Lydia, my heart goes out to you. And to everyone who has shared their stories of loss and grief.

To all who are ill, take care of yourself and get better. To-do lists ( unfortunately ) will be there when you are better able to handle them!

And of course great big congratulations to the winners so far - happy and excited for you all and maybe a little green too

I have got to get back to making Christmas cards since I'm one who takes forever to complete a card. Still have lots to go and I try really hard to make them without duplicating any.

Sorry this is so long but one long one out 1300+ isn't TOO bad, is it? Check y'all later!

I miss the challenges, too, Emily, but I "made" myself do today's sketch challenge and Monday's Technique Challenge was WAAAAAAAAYYYY fun. I haven't done yesterday's color challenge. Gotta think a little on those colors. Hi Everyone. I'm signing off for tonight and giving myself a break. I made about 10 Christmas cards today. Feeling productive! If there are drawings, I hope you all win something.

Have a good evening Jean.

I wish I could leave work now, but it's another 45 min...why did I volunteer to have my assistant leave so I could close, that was silly.

I should post a picture of my Ellie, maybe I'll do that tonight. My DH is off tonight too.

Have fun making your Christmas cards JodyLynn, I'm precutting everything before I start on mine. My best friend said I got her back into card making with all the cards I've made for the HYCCT that she wants to have a cardmaking day next Friday, day after Thanksgiving...I know what's going to happen, we'll be chatting more than cardmaking for sure & think of ideas...well, that's why I'm doing everything before that day comes.

Hugs everyone!
Connie
