I have been busy being a lazy bum....LMBO....yes, I have been binge watching some TV, been winterizing my home inside and out, finishing up with all my medical checklist for the year, trying to get ahead of the Christmas holiday by purchasing and mailing off some packages early, creating some of these gifts too (since the budget always seems to be tight this time of year because of house insurance and taxes) relaxing by coloring and/or scrapping or reading and generally goofing off! I surely do love retirement! Of course, all the fur kids just had to have a hand with helping me! Especially with getting all their beds freshly washed and litterboxes all cleaned!
Last Sunday was my sister Penny's birthday....so I created a couple of special pages for her on Facebook!
The first is a photo of her sometime back in the late 70's or early 80's in a frame that I doubled and layered that was created by Neli at Lugar Encantado Da Neli...she is so very generous with offerings for free daily on her site...give her a visit...you will NOT be disappointed! Thankful for you and your friendship Neli!
With A Russian-Dutch Heart. The border is a free gift from Snickerdoodle at Digital Scrapbooking Studio. Kyra, too, gives very freely of her talents with marvelous kits and special treats from her CT Arlene! Kyra and Arlene, so very thankful for you and especially your friendships!
This page I created for Veteran's Day to post on FB to thank all those that have served in the military! Of course, there is no way I can list them all because there are way too many. The photo is of my mother's brother, Worley Frank Dugger, who was killed in Luxembourg on Christmas Day 1944. The page was created using freebies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio!
The lawn folks were by yesterday, sharpening up the edges, mowing, and leaf gathering so that all will look nice for Thanksgiving! My fur kids have all been wiped clean, fed and played with (loved on too) and are all sacked out, with one lying on top of my hand as I try typing this....my little man, Sideways (otherwise known as Bubba)....He got up when I tried to snap the photo, isn't this sweet? I desaturated the photo so you could see how gorgeous he is...he is sitting above my keyboard. I used a couple of clusters from A-Manda Creations' Blue jean collection and Brendas Scrap Designs Christmas glitter paper and the grunge overlay is from Carin Grobe Designs at DSS
Weather is a little nippy but is supposed to warm to 65F and the wind is to quieten down too! Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous...so, with that, I will say chat later, have a very Happy Thanksgiving and make sure ou make lots and lots of memories to share! hugs, Mat
