A long....

hard decision led us to bring a new member into our family. Rambo needed a brother, so please welcome Recon!

Picture to follow at a later time.

Crafting will be a little slow again due to the training of both boys, I'll be posting a few things each week.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

Blogging verses....

Facebook! Please scroll down for the title post.

Before reading my little updated ditty note, here's a few things I've been up to lately.

Missing crafting, and loving all the new designs and machines coming out, I've decided to give mine a whirl once again.

Many thank you's to Kristy ( Imaginethatdigistamps) for her lovely colored in graphics. Adorable and for this Older Gal....easier on my hands and time limits.


I tried once again to adapt to Facebook in a robotic sort of way. Thinking, I could read, join in the fun and not get caught up in the many spews and battles projected by some people.

Which brings me back to it's just not a social media outlet for this lady. Seeing and keeping in touch with family and friends.... truly amazing, and will be missed.

Yet on the other hand, I'm one of those folks compelled to sign up for everything with the illusion... "I'll be an Einstein and learn all of my passions".. at once. Realizing now, an Einstein I"m not, and limitations I do have, so it's back to blogging for this gal.

Before deleting my Facebook account... I did post a note with Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, however, I'm guessing, it went poof once I hit that magic delete button lol.

So please, I love all of you and didn't block or befriended anyone, blogging is just more of my thing, with the addition of a little Pinterest at times!

Merry Christmas early, to all and Happy Healthy Holidays to everyone!

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

She did it....


 Kris over at Imagine That Digistamp's put together this adorable set. 

 Now if you link up to her challenge during the month of August, Kris is offering the cutest set of Flamingo's. 

 I know, I'm enjoying the pre-colored digi's, while I practice my coloring.  

This card was made using The Popcorn Bucket Digi Set, too cute!

To really add something special to your cards and projects check out Diana's store over at ...DLART by DLART on ETSY!

So be sure to head on over and check things out. Enjoy!

Mini Albums...

this one is still a work in progress, almost done.

LOL, since Rambo is a boy, this should have been different colors, since I like bling and purple..... this is what I went with.

Blessings and hugs to all, Lori m

Something from the sea......

a Baby Mermaid from the new collection over at....
 Imagine that digi stamps by Kris!

Isn't she just the cutest little Baby Mermaid every?


I used my Cricut Explore Air to cut out the card design and... for this card.... my print and cut was also done with the Cricut Explore Air. A few rhinestones and some glossy accents, wha..la, finished master piece.

It's just so much easier for me, one of those folks whose really bad at coloring things.

 Pre-colored digi's, print and cut features, well, all I'm saying is.... it just doesn't get easier.... (coughing).... unless you purchase one of those already made greeting cards!

So for now, enjoy your Sunday, blessings and hugs to all, Lori m

Aren't these just the cutest digi's, perfect for so many occasions.
OK here goes, these will be linked up to Imagine that digistamps by Kris, for July, enjoy.

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

Two in.....

one week! My, how nice to have a few minutes of crafting time again.  Puppies are a lot of fun and well.....more work, than I remembered 18 years ago. 

Here's my little gift tag, the back will hold a nice Starbucks coffee gift card, love giving these kinds of gifts.

The adorable giraffe is part of a set....that was an awesome giveaway for linking up over at Imagine that digistamp (Kris's place). Thank you Kris, this set is so sweet, many uses and well....just so stinking cute. 

Just darling... and best of all .....colored in, so, I just made a print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo, easy peasy, works great for Mommies of 6 month old puppies, lol.

Now for a few updated pictures of Rambo, he's growing so quick and I like it. He graduates on the 17th of this month from his Intermediate classes, woot, woot.

1st stream he's been in, he followed a few Golden Retrievers down the hill into the stream, good thing I packed lots of towels.

Oh course....guess who loves icky pond water??? Can we say ewwwww!

He kept looking and finally went for it, this was the 2nd slide, first one was only a few feet high. Mom called a big NO on the spiral slide ;).

He's quite the busy little guy, loves to keep going and try new things. We're having so much fun with him even though sleep comes really early, I'm ready to pass out about 7:00 pm each night.

So for now, guess this is it, blessings and hugs, Lori m

I'm entering this card over at Imagine That Digistamp's  challenge.

Puppy Training 101

Greetings Crafty friends and all that stop on by.  Its been a non stop journey of puppy training over the past few months.

Just when Rambo thinks he has me trained.....I figure out something new to confuse him.

We have a very long way to go, a few things taking more time to get correct.

This week Rambo graduates from his first puppy class and then on to the next set. I'm not sure if I'll graduate with him, grins.

Funny thing, when the trainer uses him to show the class something new, Rambo is the perfect student. With this being said, it leads me to believe, "I" may be the one needing training not him lol.

So, after turning 60 coughing... I mean 35 this summer, something inside me screamed "I need a PUPPY"! Crazy or not?  I say not, its been so much fun!

Here's the boy 4 months old!


Shhhhh baby sleeping!

I hope soon to be back crafting as he's settling in more each day freeing me up a little more.

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

As promised...

some pics of my newest addition. Goodness grief, loving this little guy, he's smart as smart, he had me trained the first week.
Please meet....Rambo.....Our newest German Shepherd boy.

He's keeping me busy, so my online and blogging/crafting is still on hold for a bit. Thank you everyone for dropping by and leaving the beautiful comments. I've been doing most blog comments via email for now.
Have a great one, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Happy New Year to all, and thank you all for the Christmas wishes. Life has been full of events and projects.   Trying to keep up with all the things breaking, and medical, before and after Christmas into the New Year, glad all the worst is behind us.  Now to enjoy a stress free New Year lol.

In the midst of all the chaos, we will soon have a new furbie, so my days will have less crafting for a few weeks during the transition process. I'm very excited for the arrival of my new helper.

Well, off I go to eye place, my lens fell out of my glasses New Year's Eve, perfect timing, one more thing to end off the old year, enjoy, blessings, Lori m
