It's Friday And I'm Still On a Roll!!

I've looked all over my computer for my layouts and pictures of things I've made, but I can't find a one! This computer is a year old and you'd think I've have some new ones on here by now!

Tomorrow should be a more productive day and will post some pictures and hopefully some layouts that I've done. I'm trying really hard to get better at blogging, but life gets in the way sometimes.

It's been just way too hot today to do a lot of anything and hope it cools off some for the weekend. Going to a couple of bbq's and a picnic on Sunday and don't want to die of heat! We are going to the Teamster Picnic on Sunday and I'm pretty excited about it, I've never been before! Don't think we'll really know that many people, but should still be a lot of fun.

Will talk to you tomorrow and hopefully you'll have some new pictures of stuff to look at!! lol

It's a Dogs Day Everyday!

At our house the dogs rules roost, there's 4 of them and only two of us! Cozad is the old man and gets up and walks like us anymore these days. Jack is the crazy one! Richard always says that his mom and dad were brother and sister. He's different, but he's so sweet and such a nice dog. Then there's Max and she is soooo daddy's girl! She is a rather large dog and Anthony always says she's a barrel with legs, which isn't nice of him at all!! hehehehe And last but not least is Ms. M&M and she is mama's girl! She's a little stinker some of the time, but she's my little stinker and wouldn't change a thing about her!! She's the baby (think she'll be 4 this year) and wants to play and all the rest of them don't want to be bothered with her. It's funny that the girls only play with each other and the boys only play with each other. M&M tries to play with the boys sometimes, but they don't want anything to do with her. Have never had so many dogs and not sure if that's the way they are or if my dogs are just strange, which wouldn't surprise me at all!!

Below is a picture of Ms. Max sleeping. The chair she's sleeping in is one of those big chair and a halfs. She is probably a little bit bigger, but she's a really pretty dog. She has like 3 layers of hair and all the layers a different colors. Her coat is just beautiful, but she sheds like you wouldn't believe!

This is Jack and M&M taking a nap with dad. Didn't think Richard wanted his picture on the internet of him sleeping, so he got cropped out of this one. It's always hard to see M&M because she's so dark and I can't seem to get any good pictures of her. She is not photogenic at all!! lol Jack on the other hand is black, but he's so photogenic and has such a sweet face!

Couldn't find a picture on the computer of Cozad that wasn't in a layout! He's the oldest of the 4 and he's my boy and dad's. He's the dog that is always under foot and wants to be involved in everything you're doing. When dad is outside doing something, Cozad is always right by his side. When I'm doing laundry or something in the kitchen, he's right there helping. Cozad is around 13 or 14 and is starting to really slow down a lot and getting so white faced!! His face is more than half white anymore. If feel bad sometimes because he's the ball boy and loves to play ball, but with the other 3 in the picture it's just too hard sometimes and he gets run right over since he's the smallest of the 4 and don't want him to get hurt!

I'm doing good, second day in a row!! Am looking for pictures for tomorrow and trying to find some layouts on one of the computers, but think I've deleted most of them. I don't take really good pictures and probably wouldn't have put them on here anyways is why I probably deleted them!

There is a slideshow of the paperbag book I did of the dogs on the bottom of my blog if you're never seen it before! The above pictures of Cozad are from that book!

Talk to you tomorrow hopefully!!

The Face That I Love!!

I found a picture of Anthony at my mom's when I was going through her pictures and it was torn and battered and I was so upset, so I took it. I figure with all the digital stuff out now a days that I could fix it and make it good again!! Well, if you know me you know I have no clue how to do it, but one of these days very soon I'm going to spend one week just learning some of the great programs that are on my computer!! I did scan the picture and haven't done anything else but crop out the ripped parts of it. It was his 3 month picture and now I need to see if I can find a smaller one maybe somewhere, because this was the 8x10 size. They took a lot of different shots that day, but this one was my favorite and that's why it was the 8x10.

This is the picture that makes me smile and the face that I love and miss. He is a fine man now, but these were the times that I miss and cherish still! If they could only stay small forever!! Don't get to see him as often as I'd like, but we talk a few times a week, but I still miss his face, then and now!!

So Glad It's Friday!!

I'm still no better at blogging, but still trying to get better at doing it more often. Have been working on pictures, but I think my Photoshop Elements is acting up. I've been trying to do some things to my pictures and it's just not working out!! I've used tutorials and did exactly what it said to do, but still no go!! I have been so frustrated with it, but hoping that when I see Sara tomorrow she can help me and I'll know if it's my Photoshop or me!! lol

Going to visit my mom, Anthony and Sara this weekend. Anthony is leaving for Burning Man on the 22nd and I want to see him before he leaves, plus we have some goodies we're taking him.

Nothing really new here. Did get sick again and so tired of being sick it's really pissing me off!! Finally feel good again and haven't been overdoing it just in case this bug comes back!

Setting up my Etsy store and did pick a name finally!! Hopefully it will have stuff on it this week when I get Photoshop to work or I figure it out.

I'm taking my new ITouch with me this weekend also and Anthony is going to download some music for me!! I have a lot of music, but I have cassette tapes and albums!! lol I do have cd's, but he has so much more than me and he knows who I like and what songs. Anthony has more music than anyone I know, it's amazing how much he has!! We used to like exactly the same music, but he's branched out in more directions than me and it's not all the same anymore.

When I get the Photoshop issues worked out I'll be posting some pictures and projects that I've been working on.

So I'll talk to you again real soon!!

I'm In Love!!

HaHa! Made you look. I'm in love with my almost new ITouch!! I just got it on Saturday and don't know what I did before I got it. A friend on Plurk was talking about selling it because she wanted a different one and I got a great deal! Thank you Andie!! lol Now all I do is look for music to put on it and nag Anthony to death, because I have no idea who sings what or what the name of the songs I like are. Good think he loves me or he'd probably kill me, but that's what happens when you're into music as much as he is. He knows what music I like and so he's going to make a cd because he has everything. Bet he misses Tower Records for that reason, he could get anything there and that was one of the perks I bet he misses.

I'm still not working and currently still working on stuff for my etsy store. I have such a mess in my craft room that it's taking me days to clean it up. I've been looking for some patterns I had and have everything out of a couple cabinets and spread out all over the room. No, I haven't found what I was looking for yet, but did find some things that I forgot about, so it's not a total waste of time. Can't wait to have everything ready and up and going. I think I finally picked out a name for the store, but want to make sure I can get it before I give it out. My same Plurk friend Andie is going to make me a watermark for the photos that I put on there and can't wait to see what she comes up with!!

Speaking of Plurk, if you haven't heard of it, it's and I'm of course susiescrapper on there. I'm pretty much susiescrapper everywhere. Plurk is basically a social network site and it's tons of fun. I've met some great people on there and we all share the same interests and just basically plurk about what we're doing and sharing things we're currently working on. I have friends all over the world and hope to meet a few of them one day!! I do have a few that are fairly local too and have a better chance of meeting one of them. Most of my friends are into crafts, scrapbooking, nascar and animals. You start off with a few friends from other sites and then you kind of pick up their friends and so on and so on! It's really fun, you should go over and check it out. Twitter is kind of the same, but not as social, it's and I'm susiescrapper over there too.

Have lots still to do today, but just wanted to share my new toy with you all and my new home! lol Hope to see you there!!

Talk to you later!
