Baby Steps...

I feel like a fledgling bulb pushing forth from the Earth.... letting the Spring awaken me. (No Spring isn't here quite yet...but the temps are flirting with a rise.) As far as doing things...that are outside the neccessity..let's just say I have been in sloth mode.

Mama bear is poking her head out of hybernation. I have done a lot of scrapbooking...but that is it as far as creativity goes. I hope to rebound with renewed spirit here any second.....yes I am waiting ....HIT ME GOOD OHHHH abundant imagination! Well I guess it takes Baby got to get your feet wet. So I dabbled with a few things. I wanted to share my seat cushion I finally finished for our bench. We finally got some chair rail up too. I essentially just moved a few baubles around...nothing new really but steps right? Happy Weekend all. Cherry

Times they are a changin....

Our missed buddy Clod....we will always love him.

Our new Black Lab Riley
Hunter and Riley Boy!

I am sure by now many wondered where I may have gone since Christmas(thank-you to those who emailed me). If no one ever ventures this way or plain gave up on me I can't say I blame ya lol! We have had some changes in this household. First off I have now JUST ventured into the 21st of yesterday I waved goodbye and good riddance to dial-up. It had gotten soooo bad I couldn't visit took sooo much time to get to just one blog and than more time to see pictures (which half the time came up with big x's anyway). Such frustration! Living out in the boondocks we have now just gotten access to Quest. Secondly we had our wonderful Airdale dog Clod of 12 years pass away in Jan. and we have been very upset over that. Thirdly we recently added two new members to our family. A bit chaotic but a lot of fun! We adopted a new dog (Riley) and a new kitten (Calvin) from the Humane Society. Pictures of all above. Fourthly I am the proud owner of a new Canon Rebel Xti digi which I have been playing around with. So much more fun doing my layouts with the pretty new pictures. I have left it on Automatic....havn't ventured to any other dials as of yet. I have MUCH to learn. We still have a lot of snow here and we have stayed home most of the time. I have so much to catch up on with soooo many of you. Hope all is well. I will leave you with some pictures of my newly painted wall shelf. I needed something new and cheery so I repainted it. I am also repainting the walls in there. The winter has been long and tedious here and my good ole paintbrush is a little much needed therapy. Cabin fever is putting it mildly......Loves, cherry
