A strange message...

By now you must know about my sweet, gentle, puppy..
We found her at our house this summer sleeping on the porch and couldn't find her owners..and fell in love. We made her a room in the porch and everything...
But now I'm thinking she's not as sweet as she looks...
I came home to this the other day....
The "s" and "a" fell off the wall, and she chewed them up into pieces....
Do you think my sweet puppy was sending me a message?! hahahahah
 I guess we will never know...

Not much time left.....

Sorry I have been M.I.A lately...I have been busy! Here is just a few things I have been doing...
taking funny pictures with my puppy
 finding the kitties spooning...
 I took Sadie to the spa...doesn't she look nice and clean?!
 I got my eyebrows waxed for the first time ever!! The first picture is the before and the one above is the after. I had never had them done, I thought it would hurt so bad. I also had an incident...have you ever gone a little pluck crazy? Well I did...and decided to let them grow...They got pretty big but I didn't want to pluck them and mess them up again! Big brows are in, right?! hahahah. Anyway I decided to do it the other day. It didn't hurt AT ALL! I was so surprised! It hurt the most when she was plucking them after! They are a little smaller then I wanted, but I am overall happy. I mean for $ can't go wrong!! (don't mind the lack of makeup! I'm on holidays! haha)
p.s- do you like the hairclip I made?!

I've also been baking....
 And also wrapping lots of gifts...

 I also worked monday and tuesday afternoons at my part time job! I've been busy!
A few of my most favourite ladies are coming over tomorrow so I still have to clean but that is it! I can relax now!! It feels good!

You can see in the picture slightly what the stockings for the animals look like before they were done. I will post about those soon!!!!

Snow Snow Snow!!

Yesterday we had our first major snow storm of the season. It continued into today, and I hear will be the same tomorrow. I took Sadie out in the snow to play yesterday. We had lots of fun! haha I got my snowshoes out and enjoyed all the snow!!! Here are some pics
Everytime I sat in the snow Sadie was on top of my legs!
Look how cute she is!
Mike came out too and had some fun with us.
She started running like crazy...all around me..trying to lick my face...haha
She also dug her face in the snow a lot....weird...haah We had fun anyway. I like the winter and the snow...just not driving in it! It was a pretty yucky drive this afternoon. I think it will be bad tomorrow too! Boo. Winter is here!

Glitter, Glitter, Glitter!!!

Today I made some holiday glitter cones. I love glitter, especially around the holidays! I bought these cones at Michael's a while ago knowing I wanted to glitter them!
I started with cones just like this and went to town. I used white glue and a paint brush to apply the glue and sprinkled on the glitter with my salt and pepper shakers. I chose gold, brown and silver. I stuck a pen in the bottom of the cone so I didn't have to hold it with my hands
I still ended up getting messy
 glitter everywhere!! But they look I don't mind!
 Aren't they pretty?!
I will be posting more over the holidays for sure! I have one more week of work and I am off for 2 weeks. I am working on stockings for the animals and should be done this week so keep watching for that! They are cute too!! And maybe will post some pictures of the SNOW here!!
Have a great week everyone!!

Upstairs Frames

When I posted that list of 10 things in 10 days one of the things I wanted to do was to paint the frames in the hall upstairs. I finally got around to doing that. I picked a nice antique white. Here is the before:
Here is the after
I printed some new pictures from the engagement/save the date session we had with Mike's sister Jaclyn. I changed them to black and white. I sanded the edges..and love the final result!

I am not getting tired of white...yet!!! I wonder if I ever will!
