January 2019 . . . Happy New Year!

Of course I'm starting the year off with a new picture of  Boo!  In three months' time, he has grown from .5 ounce to 4.2 pounds.  I thought he would stay black, but he's developing some stripes on his tail now and has two tiny splotches of white fur behind each ear.  He's going to be a very unusual looking cat as he grows.

January Pixel Scrapper Blog Train . . . "Science Fiction"

I'm not overly crazy about Sci-Fi, but I do love robots.  This is the robot I built and programmed a couple years ago.  My two grandsons think their Grandma is pretty cool!  This guy is only a foot and half tall and is quite entertaining, but I'm thinking a bigger one would be great to send out on cold winter days to feed the horses!

And, these are the robots I built for you --  Enjoy!

December Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, Fan Freebie and Meet Little Boo

Before I get started on the Blog Train, I thought you might like to meet Boo.  He has really grown this past month and pretty much has run of the house during the day.  He's sweet and sleeping here, but when he's awake...everything is a toy!

This is Boo


This month, it's "Retro Holly Jolly", and the designers over at Pixel Scrapper have really outdone themselves.  You'll want to collect all the kits to use for all those great Christmas photos and cards!

As a decorative painting designer, I created photo ornaments made from wood and painted (of course!) for my tree so family always feels close even if they can't make it home for Christmas.  I thought you might like something similar for your scrapbook pages.

November Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

As usual on a horse ranch, October was a flurry of activity getting things cleaned up, tank heaters hooked up and generally getting the horses used to the idea that winter is coming.  They don't seem to mind the snow and cold as much as I do.  And, I rescued a little black kitten from my barn.  He was just so little and wouldn't have made it otherwise.  I've done this rodeo before, so I knew what I was getting myself into.  He's about 7 weeks old now and eating on his own.  He's totally black and we named him "Boo".  He's just adorable.  I'm sure you'll hear more about Boo as time goes along.

The Blog Train theme this month is "Family Traditions".  You know, when my kids were still living at home, there were a number of traditions that we always clung to.  But, in recent years, those traditions are more a thing of the past as we create new traditions to suit my grown up children, their spouses and my grandchildren.  And that's ok.  I'm always game for new and different.  The bottom line for me is that everyone is happy and healthy.  The only tradition that I won't budge on is there WILL be turkey for Thanksgiving!

The Fan Freebie this month is more in the colors I like for this time of year since everything outside is starting to be more grey and gloomy.  We missed fall leaves this year.  From the incredibly hot summer we had, we jumped straight into cold weather.  The leaves skipped changing color and went straight into frozen dry brown, and then blew into the next county with a couple of extremely windy days.  We're left with leafless trees that kind of look spooky with the setting sun.  Great prop for Halloween though!

October Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

September just flew by.  The worst part was trying to figure out what to wear each day.  One day it was in the 80s and the next day it dropped into the 60s, and much colder at night.  Back and forth all month long.  Haven't turned the heat on yet, but that day is coming!

Using the same color scheme, I've created my new October Fan Freebie for you.  Originally I was going to create a cluster frame, but decided that you might like the elements separate to mix and match with all the other kits on this train.

This month's train is so much fun!  The ladies have come up with some terrific kits, all in a really great color scheme.  Be sure to collect them all during the month of October to use with all your wonderful fall photos.  You can find them on the train list  HERE


Hope you all have a wonderful fall!  Enjoy!
