Happy Sunday to Everyone:

First I want to show pictures of the snow we got yesterday in Va. Beach, VA.  We got about 6 inches where we live and that is a lot for a city that doesn't own any plows.

I love the how it looks outside before anyone gets out there to play in it.  Next are pictures of the cat and dog enjoying a day inside by the fire.

Next up are a few pictures of the kit I will be putting up in my etsy store later today.  You can get there by clicking here.
There are over 100 items in this kit, with enough cardstock to make 8 cards.  I hope you enjoy

Have a great weekend.

Happy Sunday Evening,

I was able to get my February Wallhaging done.  I will wait till the end of February when I take it down to send it off to be machine quilted.  Here is a picture of the finished top:

This hangs on the wall at the bottom of the stairs behind our front door.  I already have March - May made and quilted.  I will show them here on the first of every month.

I also made this wonder pound cake tonight for the family to snack on this week.  I put a few slices in the freezer so I can toast them with my morning coffee.  Yummy!

Hope all of you had a great weekend and I will be back tomorrow with a few Card Challenges from the weekend and the Mojo Monday Challenge.

Happy Friday-

Thought I would share my last 2 POD (Picture of the Day). The first one is of our white boxer Riley curled up on our bed last night.  He blends right into our feather comforter.  As you can probably see in the photo he has transferred mud to the cover, because after cold weather comes the dreaded thaw and he brings in tons of mud from the back yard.

The next picture is a card I mad from the Coffee Kit by Mish Mash.  She makes up kits and sell them on Etsy.  I was one of the lucky ones and got this kit.

I am working today on my wallhanging will hopefully have a picture this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend.

Hello Everyone in Blog Land:

I have been MIA, but I have been doing a few things.  On our way home after Christmas we go across the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel to get from the Peninsula to Va. Beach where we live.  After you come out of the tunnel to the right you can see the ships in port at Norfolk Naval Station.  I took this picture and thought I would post it.  The words say everything:

I have also been living my word of the year-"DREAM".  I made this journal for everyday notes, websites, blogs and things I need to do and remember.

I also cleaned up my Scrap Space and put my ribbon in a vase I found downstairs.  It makes me smile when I look at it now it is so pretty.

I have also put together and have been keeping up with Project Life by Becky Higgins.  The purpose is to take a picture a day and journal about that day.  At the end of the year you have everything doucumented and done.  To fine out more about Project Life click here.

I will continue to give you updates on my Project Life as the days go by.

I am also working right now on a wall hanging for February.  I haven't done any quilting since last year and I still have the month of May up on the wall, so I thought I would at least get the top pieced for February
so that I can hang it up this year.  I will post a picture when I complete it. 

I will be putting hand sewn items and paper items up for sale this year that I have made so be on the look out.  They will either go on Etsy or Ebay.  I will let you know when I get enough made to post for sale.

Have a great evening-
