2 cards from one paper





Well these are only two of 4 cards I actually made one was made for two very special people to me that I have not seen or talked to in probably about 15 years, so I didn't take a picture because as soon as it was finished it got written in and put in an envie. The other I'm currently leaving with out a sediment because you never know when you will need a special card for a special occasion that you didn't make one for. I do that often. I would like to made a special congratulations card for some friends who just got engaged. I'm very excited for them and they have inspired me to take some time to make some lovie cards for just those types of occasions cause I don't have any in my card box yet. Maybe tomorrow after household chores. Again Enjoy. Pin It Now!

Little moments


As some of you know I am a ferret Mama. I have four beautiful ferrets that I love with all my heart and the other day I snapped this picture of my two newest ferrets Sara and Stormy cuddling. Sara and Stormy are sisters we rescued them from a rescue group who didn't know too much about them and were trying to feed them Lettace. Ferrets don't eat lettace. They eat hard food you can find in any pet store. It was a battle but they came home with my parents and have become a very important part of my ferret family. Ferrets can be messy and time consuming pets. They get into everything, they need baths about every week (they smell) but moments like this remind me why I love them so much and of course play time is soooo fun. Watching them hop along the floor and try to get me on the bed, so much fun.



Then today the reason for this post. I went to start cleaning and I turned the corner to see this. Buster my oldest beagel sleeping in the cage. The story is that when Buster was a puppy he was a nightmare, he chewed everything (video games, the computer mouse x4, phone books), so we had to crate train him. He came to love his cage and honestly no longer needed it, so we took it down. Well we got a new puppy about a year ago and she has been a handful. We tried the cage at first but it was more of a mess then it was worth, so I gave up on it for awhile. Well we have since moved and I decided that we need to try it again, so I set it up and it seems to be working, but now every once and awhile I find Buster cuddled up in it reliving his puppy days. He has come full circle when you think about it. Its hard to believe he is 13 or 14 years old. As he gets older things are becoming harder for him to do. He can't jump on the couch anymore and climbing stairs is near impossible. It makes me sad to think such a great family member is probably near the end of his life. I can't imagine life without him. Using him as a pillow on the couch, scratching his back, being mad that he wont ask me to go out (I'm the only one who puts him out and yet he'll ask my mom, dad, basically anyone but me). Part of me hopes that he will fall asleep and not wake up because I find putting a pet to sleep to be the hardest choice in the world. I was a bulbering idiot for when I had to put my oldest ferret done (RIP Spunky SR). Okay enough with my crying about Buster butt. I have to clean. Have a great day all. Pin It Now!

My Raven and what I have been up to


Here is my Handsome Raven who is about 1 year old. He is the best cat I have ever owned. I have had him since he was about 1 or 2 weeks old. I feed him by hand cause his mom abandoned him and his siblings. I just took this morning while he was sitting in the window watching the birds and bugs. He keeps wondering on to the deck but gets spooked and runs back in. All my animals are enjoying the new deck and door at my house. I'm not enjoying it too much because we are working on various things in the yard. Planting new plants, transforming the hill in our backyard into something we can enjoy. I wish I took before pictures but sadly I didn't but the after looks totally different. Now we just need the grass to grow so that we can enjoy green instead of sandy brown. Thankful Dad said no more projects this year. We just have a few things to finish up and we are done. YIPPEEE!! Hopefully I can get my house picked up then some crafting today. I have a couple of challenges would like to do. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Pin It Now!
