My Heart

Hi guys and gals!  I feel so sorry for my poor neglected bloggo.  It's been a VERY busy Summer.  The last of this years hay was put up today, we've still got new chicks everywhere, and my little duck is doing great.  I do believe he's a boy and I've decided to name him.....drumroll please....Bubby Quackers. 

I also have another new addiction:

Love the definition!  So true!  When I'm pinning I want to run to my craft room and make something or run to the kitchen and cook.  It's nice to get soooo inspired!

Got a LO to share tonight using goodies from the newest kit from The Sampler.  This month's kit is fabulous with all kinds of goodies.  My favorite thing in the kit is the POW!  Glitter Paper from AC.  Wowzers is it beautiful.  Here's my LO:

My preciously cute Gracie Goble!  Love this little fat fluff ball dearly!  This darling Webster's Pages paper was perfect for my doggie theme.  I also adore the Hambley Banner rub-on.  Visit The Sampler today to get your kit.  I also have a mini album tutorial at The Sampler's new blog, so stop by!  And Holly from Experience Life Wisely is having a giveaway at her blog, just follow the link for your chance to win!

The Sampler

Hi all!  The Sampler has a fabulous new kit for August that is beeeautiful......Take a look:

I'm already in love with this kit, can't wait to see it in person!  I have a LO from last month's kit to share with you tonite.  Here it is:

Logan wanted to go fishing while we were on vacation.  People all around us were catching baby sharks.  He threw his line in and a few minutes later he had a bite, a shark!  Definitely a memory he will always have.  Matt and I had run out shopping, so Logan insisted on waiting till I got back to go fishing so I'd have my camera ready, hehe!  He knows me well!  I loved the July Sampler Kit, it had all kinds of goodies perfect for Summer scrapping.  The Sampler Kit Club also has a new Typepad blog where you can keep up with the latest news, we'd love for you to become a follower! 

We spent the week in Tennessee enjoying the Smoky Mountains.  It's such a relaxing vacation and Mom went with us.  It's close enough to Kentucky, that we can be there in a couple of hours.  Here's the view from our cabin:

There is a fabulous Scrapbook Superstore there that I love.  We shopped till we almost dropped!  I'm thankful God gave me such a great peaceful week relaxing with nothing to do!

Lost In Space

Hi guys and my poor little neglected blog!  Seems like my mojo has took a Summer vacation and hasn't came home yet!  There's just endless work to do on the farm plus I do have a REAL job that pays the bills.  Hopefully with Autumn around the corner I can slow down and enjoy days snuggled indoors scrapping and crafting. 

I have 2 cards to share with you tonite using adorable digital clipart from One Pink Lemon.  First up is a "hoot" of a card. I can't get enough owls!  Who would think they'd be so cute on paper. 

Eek, I just love this little owl.  My patterned papers are My Little Shoe Box, ribbon is PTI, and bling is Creative Charms.  Owl and sentiment are One Pink Lemon.  I'm enterning this little card in the following challenges:
Up next is another card using goodies from One Pink Lemon.  This time I used the Home Sweet Home digital clipart set

For this little card I used PTI Cardstock.  Patterned Paper is My Little Shoebox.  Twine and seam binding.  Button is Crate Paper and bling is Creative Charms.  My house, sentiment, and flower border are One Pink Lemon

And I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
I'm happy to report that my duck Fredda still has 1 baby duck alive.  That may not sound like happy news since she started out with 3, but believe me we're happy!  She's a wonderful mother.  I've got all kinds of new chicks running around.  Here's a picture of the barnyard:

This is my little barn.  It's where I keep my chickens and turkeys.  I adore my little barn - this is the most peaceful place on the planet and I could sit there for hours and watch my chickens interact with eachother.  That's me surrounded by chicks and turkeys!  They were preparing for a midday snack of corn. 

My neighbor gave me a Silkie rooster today.  We're thinking all of the Silkies I hatched are females so we needed a rooster.  My new rooster has a history of picking fights and being a bully, so we named him Ivan the Terrible.  Hopefully he will prove his name wrong and fit in perfectly!  And hopefully we'll start having baby Silkies!
