For anyone who has ever had the opportunity
to visit Walt Disney World,
you will know how magical the trip can be.

A friend of mine is leaving tomorrow
with her husband and two little girls
on their first trip to the
Magic Kingdom.

These little books have been a labour of love
for the girls to take with them
for photos, autographs and journal notes.

There are 8 decorated pages and 8 plain pages
in each book.  The initials on the front are
the girl's first name initials.

Sure wish I was tagging along with them.
Disney is so different when experienced through
the eyes of children.

Have fun girls!

Thanks for stopping by.

Baby cards are the call of the day since
two of my neighbour's are expecting soon.

The baby onesie Bigz die from Sizzix
was used to create both of these cards.

I am hoping to sew up some bibs for the new little ones,
just have to choose the fabrics.

Feels great to be back creating again, especially with a
happy heart.

Thanks for stopping by.



There are not many things sweeter in life than 
the face of a puppy.

My friend Carolyn lost her little TYRA several months ago
and now has a new member in her family...

It was Maggie's first visit to be groomed today
and I have NEVER had a puppy so young (4 months)
behave so perfectly while being groomed.


I am lucky to be Maggie's Auntie Bonnie
and I am so going to love watching this little girl
grow up and enjoy her life with her forever family.

Thanks for stopping by.

With Lily's passing 
and the sad times adjusting to life
without her, we had to say
good bye to our dear little Ditto too.

In many ways, Ditto was the lucky one of our fur babies
as she lived to be 15 years old.  We adopted her when she was 
two years old and we enjoyed life with her for 13 more years.
She was always a loner ... feisty and independent ...
but we loved her just the same.
With age, came subsequent health issues
and it was time to let her go.

We miss you Ditto
and we hope that you are keeping Lily, Gadget and Doodle
good company. 
You were a special member of our family
and we will always remember
you with love in our hearts.
