My Poodles-My Loves

 I LOVE my girls!!!! I have three!!! Zoey (above) she is 12 years old next month, and the Mother of Daisy and Remy (who lives with my Sister). I was pulling out my cutter quilts to take chunks out of them to use in a project.... when I came back around the corner...and Ms. Zoey had made herself comfy. :0) I just didn't have to heart to move her. So, for the day I left them on the floor for her.
My sweet little Ms. Daisy ( She and her brother just turned 7 yrs old) They are toy poodles. My constant shadow. My velcro-pup. LOL!! She looks at me like the sun and the moon set on me. :0)

and then there is this delightful creature....Bella ( or whom I call "Bellabean") She is 4 years old. She is a Royal standard poodle. She is a very large poodle. Bigger than a standard poodle. And very protective of her Momma....Me :0) 

Me on the couch eating!!! Do they want something??? hmmm??? To be truthful when ever I'm on the couch eating my girls line up just like this every time. (It wouldn't be because they KNOW that if they are very patient Momma will slip something to them...would it?!!  :0) 

Me every morning when I put my make up on. "Bellabean" thinks it is a good time to watch and get snuggles!! How does one say no to such a face??? 

Due to the change in my finances I need to start grooming my poodles. Poor Zoey!!! I can't tell if she is telling me she forgives me despite my poor grooming skills or what?? But I put her on my bed and she layed down on this pillow. I had to take the picture. Like everything else...practice. I will get better Zoey I promise. She was the first to go that day...Bella went next...and I did better.

            heart melts when my girls look at me with such love in their eyes.
My last photo.... I was in the studio all day.... and Bella simply told me in her way that I had had enough. It was time for me to get up and stop. I am sitting in my chair and she is on her feet. I am NOT leaning over. THAT is how big my dog is!!! 
Bella wanted a hug... she layed her head on my chest and did not move. I held her like this for 5 minutes. I was able to get one selfie.

My girls complete my little world. I can't imagine my life without a poodle in it. And I never will have a life with out a poodle in it. I will always own one. They give you that unconditional love that we all need.

Besides Jesus Christ, my hubby, and kids.....they are a must for my life.

100 Days Update

I have been really enjoying my 100 days art project. I am still plugging along in my midori art journal. Doing a quick collage a day...for 100 days. I have found that some days it is just a quick page with no real meaning. But then some days after I am done and I study what I have made...I realize my collages may have more meaning in them than I realize. Part of my inner self coming out as I walk through my daily life. Interesting and yet scary at times...ha!!! Here are a bunch of pages....
please ENJOY!!!

I am sure by now you have seen that I really LOVE old papers! Those go down first every time. I have a new favorite magazine. "Bella Grace", by Somerset.... when I am done savoring each issue for months...I will take images and sayings that moved from them and work them into my art. Like the words in the page above.

....longing for a simple day....
Ever have one of those days?
I most have been having one of those days then :0)

Thank you for stopping by. I love it when you take the time to say HI :0)
Have a blessed day.

Handmade U 2016

I had the AWESOME privilege to attend Handmade U in Nebraska on May 12-14, 2016.  Rachel Mcgough is the Hostess and owner of this beautiful barn that holds the event. Her special guest teacher this semester was Mindy Lacefield!!! Which had me floating with excitement!!! I love her ART!!!

  Plus....Mindy and I have been friends for years on Instagram but have never met, because we have bonded over our poodles...hehe!!! Her Merlin and my Bella look so much a like...except in their sizes, my Bella is about 2 times bigger than Merlin.  :0)  Poodle Momma's that is what we are...LOL!!!

The Handmade U staff. 

Rachel's husband bought her a photo booth for her anniversary one year...and they got it to print the Handmade  U logo down the middle. Then we formed lines down the sides of the booth...and ran in and out as fast as we could for everyone to have as many people in their pictures as possible. That was super FUN!!! Here is my photo strip!!!
The grounds were just so pretty. Here you can see both the house and the barn. 

Class goodie bag and my name tag.
Inside the Barn...getting ready for classes. 
The first class was Quiltdori's with Rachel. Here you can see everyone's finished dori's. Mine is on the top row, second from the left. Mindy's is the first one next to mine. They all look great!!!

The second class was Mindy Lacefield.... an Altered child's board book. 

Mindy showing us some demos. If we all look cold?.... that is because we are!!
 Me probably most of all...I believe I was the only one from the southern regions. (Florida) My teeth chattered all day!!! lol!!! :0)
Here you can see my little boy and and messy space all around me.
My little man close up.
I got to meet another long time IG friend @packerdi_honestheartstudio . Dianne and I have never met...but have been friends on Instagram FOVEREVER!! It was AWESOME!!!!

                                                                           Smile :0)
This barn is just gorgeous!!!
Last photo...I wanted to take a selfie with as many people as I could get to fit in the picture. And Mindy took my phone and stood on the picnic table and peeked her head around the corner and snap...we had a great last selfie of the group!!! 

Awesome time!!! If you ever get a chance to go to one of Rachel's Handmade U's....I highly recommend it!!!
