My NEW FLOOR!! whoo hoo.

We removed the parquet flooring piece by piece with a hammer and pry-bar.  Took a long time to remove but to get a new and better floor it was well worth it.  YAY.  So excited.  Sept 24, 2011. 

Old Parquet flooring.  Soft wood can't use water on it or do anything because it marks up really bad.

YaY start of the installation of the new floor

New Floor.  They just left.  Finished yay.

Another Fantastic Technique at a cardmaking class

We have done another fantastic technique using Window mini blinds and alcohol inks from Tim Holtz.  Can you believe that the card with the trees has mini blinds on it?  The trees are cut out of mini blinds and the sign is from a mini blind.  Also the books markers of course are made from mini blinds.  The leaf is cut out of a dollar store cutting mat.  We then inked it and stamped them.  How awesome.  Just look.

Here are the bookmarks and tags.  They came out so cute.  We used the alcohol inks in a pen to write.

This wolf card was stamped and then we used 50% water and 50% bleach in a water pen and where the lighter colors are is where we used the pen.  So cute.  Gotta make more of these.  Luv them.

COLORING!!! I am addicted to coloring in front of TV!!!!!

Oh I am having so much fun experimenting with my colored pencils.  Shading adding more than one color and so on.  AWESOME...  I will take any tips anyone has to give.

I just luv these pages. 
Charlotte did a wonderful job picking out the color for these pages.  AWESOME.  can't wait for the next class.  Halloween is next yay.

MY NEW WHEELS. Oh How I luv this vehicle. Best thing made.

I bought this Polaris Ranger AKA "Range Woofer" (as my friend helped me name it LOL thanks Denice!!) and everytime I try to tell someone they think I got a truck or something.  NO WAY.  I got a bush vehicle, doggy vehicle,  Butt saver vehicle  best ever.  I even like to drive it.  We took it for our first drive and with Our precious being so scared we tied her down so she won't jump.  The other two were okay, at least we thought.  Got past the swedetown pond (of course where birds and water is and having a bird/water dogs - you get the picture).  We have a jumper.  Miss Princess jumped out while we were driving (that is not safe princess you can't do that) and looked behind and she was trying to figure out which pond to jump into.  UGH! stopped the vehicle and called her back.  GEESH!!!.  So she got tied down.   Other than that it was a fun ride.  Funny though we let them swim at another pond and on the way back with the dusty trails they all needed baths.  LOL.   Oh well it is fun.  We all had a blast.

There they are...  Three dogs ready to go for a ride.

MY NEW FENCE!!!! Yippeeee

Well, Since we didn't buy the house next door we decided to put up a privacy fence on the side and on the back.  But this year could only afford the side.  Next year I will put it on the back.  OH BOY.  what fun.  The dogs just don't know what to think of it since they use to bang into the fence to see the neighbors dogs.  GEESH!.  LOL.  Oh well.  Here is the fence.

I had this fence up since Jordan was 2 years old.  So 18 years ago this fence was put up.
Here are the posts that went in on Wednesday Sept 7th 2011.
