My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

Surprise Sunflowers!

So last year I put out a bird feeder. Months went by. No birds.
Then just as I was going to give up, they all started coming in droves! Finches, grosbeaks, cardinals, bluejays, a raccoon, a fox, a skunk- oh, my!
Anyway, the bi-product of all this was the seed sprouting on the ground beneath the feeder. I was going to pull it all but decided to see what would happen- and I have a beautiful patch of sunflowers!
Don'tcha just love surprises?

Meet Louise

This is Louise. Living with Louise is like living with a squirrel! She makes me laugh every day. She greets me at the door every day I come home from work. When I'm on the computer, this is where Louise is- I type with the keyboard on my lap!

A "Taste" of Adoption

I was with Buffalo Paws and Claws today at a great coffee shop in East Aurora called Taste. The owner, Yvonne, was so generous and let us have a little "pre-event" in her allyway before Whiskerfest, which is happening next weekend!
We had three puppies that needed homes and one got adopted! That was very exciting!
 2 boys, 2 puppies- what a great image!
 The ally way at Taste in East Aurora Thank you Yvonne!
 "Baby" getting some comfort from Dawn (Buffalo Paws and Claws)
 "Baby" was very popular!
 "I got adopted today!"
"Oreo" and a friend who stopped by- Oreo is so adorable and needs a home!

Create with Beryl Taylor

So last year my friend Janice and I took a trip to the CREATE retreat. If I remember right, it was in Chicago. Beryl Taylor was a wonderful teacher and we made these great mixed media books.
                                           The table just got messier and messier!

                                                            Front of the book I made
                                                   A couple spreads inside
As you can see, the table did not stay neat and tidy! I came across these pictures and they just made me laugh at the wonderful MESS we made!

My First Post!

Hello to anyone who joins me on my blog! I never thought I'd do this but here I am!
What will I put on here? Probably a lot of things I'm involved in. Right now I am working on a big fundraiser I 'm running in two weeks. It has been an education-fundraising is hard work and I'm not sure of the results I will get! I will post pix when it's over- I am hoping everyone will have a great time!
I made a pair of pants to wear -funky kitty fabric! Hey, I'll do just about anything to help the furry ones!
