Revenge is mine...

She who dares to eat my Thickers shall be subjected to the wearing of the Santa hat!!

Ack! Pixie just ate....

vinyl Thickers! That's right, she went over to a LO I had sitting out and ate the title off of it!! See that journaling's now title-less

She looks real sorry doesn't she, I think there is a little bit of Thicker still on her mouth

Ugh, well here are some sneak peeks of LO she hasn't eaten (yet!)

A Very Quiet Week

This has been such a quiet relaxing week, therefore I have been slacking on the blogging :) We have been quite busy at work getting ready for Christmas...

I have been playing around with some pics trying to come up with an idea for our Christmas card...

and I played around a little more with my November My Favorite Memories kit

We just got back from taking the pugs for a walk to Starbucks, mmmmmmmm caramel apple cider, so they are about to settle down for a nap and I am going to do some scrapping.

Sunday Stuff

So it's a relatively quiet Sunday morning here...Pixie is happy chewing on her polar bear toy

Mugsy is snoozing in my desk chair

at least he was until the camera came out :)

We received a wonderful Halloween card from our friend Jan this weekend

I finished up some felt flower pins

...and I started working with my November My Favorite Memories kit this morning, love the touch of blue with the festive colors in this kit, here is a small sneaky peek

Now I just need to work up the energy to go to the grocery store....yuck!!

Pug Pix & Crafty Stuff

We started off today with a yummy bagel

with our new favorite flavor of cream cheese, pumpkin spice...mmmmmmm

Mugsy and Pixie heard rumors of the deliciousness that was being served up in the kitchen and came in to see if they could have a little taste. Mugsy was a little hesitant...

Pixie was obviously very excited!

We then decided that a stroll around the yard was in order as it is supposed to storm here this afternoon so we wanted to get out before the rain starts

Ack! Is there anything she won't put in her mouth?!

Now on to the crafty buttons

Button bracelets...

My First Crop

So this weekend I went to my first crop ever! A bunch of us girls from over at
SIStv met up for an Illinois/Wisconsin crop, it was so fun to finally get to meet everyone in person. I was terrified that I wasn't going to have everything I needed so I kind of way overpacked, Bob had given me a Joann's gift card a couple of months ago so between it and a coupon I got a sweet deal on this....

I had to Martha-fy it with Jack Skellington of course :)

Speaking of cool people that I got to meet, I got to scrap next to Elly!

...and her gnome :)

I can't believe how much I got done! I did my next Category Stories LO, I did 2 more LOs with the October My Favorite Memories kit and did a couple for myself

^^That's my starstruck friend Nancy along with her pug Aine and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White

I received my October Label Tulip kit on Saturday so I was able to take it with me on Sunday and I got 3 LOs are a couple of sneaky peeks :)

I can't wait until we get to do it again!

A Scrapbooker's Worst Nightmare...

A paper stealing pug! As I am trying to pack everything I own to go to the SIS crop this weekend, Pixie has been randomly darting into my room and stealing bits and bobs of paper and other embellishments. Here she is running off with a piece of scalloped cardstock...

She thinks she is safe under the dining table, for some reason she thinks it's like an invisibility cloak and I won't be able to see her under there

A tug of war ensues, not that there is much use for a wet & soggy piece of cardstock now :)
