October Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

 "Jack and Jill" automatically brought up the age-old nursery rhyme.  Sometimes when I'm creating for painting or scrapbooking, my mind drifts off in strange directions.  And I'm wondering....why were they going UP the hill to fetch a pail of water?  The law of gravity would naturally bring the water down so they could have skipped climbing the hill altogether.  Just a thought.

I love Halloween.  It's such a fun time for children to dress up in spooky or sweet costumes and go trick or treating around their neighborhood.  I love carving pumpkins, making monster cookies and decorating the house for the holiday.  I love it all, including those old wonderful Boris Karloff movies.   And, of course....I have a black cat!  I think there's a little witch in all of us.

The Boo Update -- It's Boo's First Birthday!   

We have 7 new kittens in the horse stable and they are all so sweet.  I wonder if Boo would like a little friend for his birthday?

September Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

The entire month of August just flew by in a flurry of activity.  It won't slow down now until the snow starts falling.  What a dreadful thought!

We used to always go to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival this time of year.  The minute you walk through the gates, you're transported back in time.  Fun shows, good food and all the little shops with handcrafted pottery, leatherwork, jewelry and delightful trinkets makes for an enjoyable day.

My grandchildren are all heading back to school soon, so I thought it would be fun to do a "Back To School" kit this month.  The window of the bus is the frame.  As an example, that's my oldest grandson looking happy to go back to school.  Actually, that picture was taken on the LAST day of school last year.  No wonder he's so happy :)  I included the numbered grades (K thru 6th) to layer over the grill of the bus.  You can use the alphabet and numbers to add any additional text to your layout.

The Boo Update

Boo had a bad day.  Although we weren't having any issues, I thought it was a good time to have him "fixed".  The drugs they use during surgery can make cats from sleepy-disoriented all the way up to hyperactive for a couple days.  Boo fell somewhere in the middle.  He didn't sleep and just kept moving around from one spot to another the first day.  Poor kitty.  The one new activity he added is swishing his paws in his water dish and watching the water splash all over.  His eyes remained very dilated on the first day, so I was thinking maybe he needed his paw to find out where the water was.  Nope.  I'm cleaning up puddles of water by his dishes 3 or 4 times a day now.  Are we having fun yet?

Boo's Bad Day

Happy Fall to all!  See ya next month!

I had so much fun creating the blog train kit, I used the same colors and style for the Fan Freebie, too!  I did, however, add a touch of purple on this one to balance the color palette above with an additional "cool" color..Enjoy!

July PS Blog Train and Fan Freebie

June flew by like it had wings!  Spring roundup went much smoother than usual because of the cooler temperatures.  I think the horses didn't realize it was that time of year again :)  Because of all the rain and (finally) getting warmer weather, all the flower gardens are in beautiful shape and in full bloom.  I started three new gardens with bareroot perennials for less cost and ease of planting.  They, too, are starting to bloom already.

While I worked on "Winter In The Tropics", my only thought was that winter in the tropics had to be better than this spring in Wisconsin.

The Boo Update --

As you can see, Boo is a blur in each of these photos.  When playing ball on the stair railing, he is in constant motion.  We play this game every day and he loves it.  He can get the first ball from the top of the stairs, but for all the rest, he makes his way down the stairs to knock them off the railing and chase them down the stairs.  If it really picks up speed, he bats them around on the floor before going back up the stairs to get the next ball.  Then, before I go to bed at night, I line up about 15 balls on the railing.  Most mornings, the balls are all on the floor below.
