A Monster of a RAK...

To celebrate my first week as a blogger, I have a fun RAK for anyone who wants to leave a comment introducing yourself along with a quick "hi" or "hello". This is one of my Oh Grrrs! monsters and he is looking for a new home...he's a sneaky little bugger and likes to play practical jokes so be warned, but he is also lots of fun! Mugsy and I will select a winner on New Year's Day sometime in the evening.

A New Mugsy Layout...

Ack! I just realized it's been a month since I did a Mugsy page so I jumped in and did this one much fun when your subject is so cute.

This Day Has Gone To The Dogs...

and it's a good thing! This morning my trusty co-pilot Mugsy and I went to do a home visit with a family who is adopting a pug through Northen Illinois Pug Rescue. Mugsy made quite the impression and enjoyed all of the attention that he got. We adopted Mugsy through NIPRA almost 2 years ago...he's such a funny little guy and we love him so.

Yesterday I ran accross a link to The Snuggles Project...if you haven't heard of this, it is such a cool thing. They promote the making of snuggles, blankets and quilts to donate to homeless pets in shelters. I started making some snuggly flannel blankets that are going to be given to puggies who are being fostered through Northern Illinois Pug Rescue. I think this is something everyone could participate in, you don't have to know how to sew, you can do a no-sew fleece blanket, and the homeless kitties and doggies would love them.

Christmas is over...

so of course it's time to start thinking about crafts for Valentines! I have the next few days off work and my mind is spinning with so many ideas of things I want to create. I made this lovey-dovey version of my Oh Grrrs! pug plushie today, isn't he sweet. I think I want to make a garland of felt hearts in fun colors with blanket cute would that be?!

A Special Layout...

Amanda (Nell's Mom) over at PugVillage asked me to scrap some pages to frame for her office...what a fun project this has been since she has the 2 cutest girls Nell and Lucy and a special boy Hoover who has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. I tried to tie all 3 layouts together by using Bobarbo and Basic Grey patterned paper on each one as well as my favorite flowers, flowers and more flowers!

This is the layout I finished this morning of sweet Hoover, or as he was known "Piggy". What a precious boy and I *love* this picture.

Here is Nell...what a face!

A pug in cute!!

These made my day...

I got a fabulous surprise when my friend Megan stopped by work today and dropped off a fab-o gift for me! She got me some floursack towels and embroidery floss so I can finally get around to trying out the cool Sublime Stitching patterns I got a while back. I also got a wonderful assortment of Bubble Bars and Fizzies from Lush...I can't wait to try the Pop in the Bath Bubble Bar, it smells so yummy!

I also got this funny card from my friend Mary...she shares the same sense of humor I do!

I just have to share...

This super cute bag that is going to a special someone over at Pug Village...I just love Bloo and want to keep it for myself, guess I better get busy making another one for me! I got to use my new "As seen on t.v. tool" the GeMagic...remember the Bedazzler, well it's kind of like that but comes in my favorite color snazzy!

At last...I blog.

And to celebrate the occasion, I give you a picture as random as the fact that I have suddenly decided to blog 4 days before Christmas...enjoy sink cat!
