Welcome to my addiction!

Thank you for stopping in and looking around. I am an admitted paperholic and try to participate in all things stamped. In the past I have taught classes on unique techniques at our LSS and have loved every minute of it. My mind continues to want to create and share. I garner my inspiration from fellow bloggers, our LSS, and some of the horticulture magazines that come in the mail. Simple pleasures in life make me smile and that includes a simple yet elegant card or piece of paper that I see potential. Please feel free to share your work with me as I share my work with you. Enjoy your visit!

Keeping quite busy!

For those of you who don't know me personally, I have been keeping quite busy in the background.  Our female blue Great Dane had puppies last week.  She had 12 babies, 11 lived.  That is a huge litter so for a while I am living, sleeping, breathing and eating with the puppies and their mom in the whelping room.  This year I get to use the bed in there, last time I had to sleep in the whelping box with mom because she had complications with her delivery and ended up getting toxic mild syndrome.  This year she has most of the feeding under control, but 11 is a lot to feed, so I help supplement every four hours.  Then Great Danes are so big that I stay close to make sure mom doesn't turn over or stretch out in the middle of the night and smush a baby (they only weight 1 pound 4 -8 ounces.)  I took a video after they were born and posted it on youTube for the future owners to see, if you would like to watch, click on the video below.  I'll be back soon, I am working on some projects for Grandbabies, so I'll get them up as soon as possible.  Have a wonderful week!

That video is so cute. What sweet little babies. Sad to hear that one of them didn't make it. Glad all of the rest of them are healthy and doing well. Good luck with everything!
