On Wednesday, Mar. 4th, my friend K's Meghan (our Seamus' niece, and our Peanuts' sister) gave birth to 2 beautiful baby boys!
After having helped K whelp litters of 6 & 8 pups, these two were a piece of cake!!

Below is Oscar (for now) ~ the first born...

Meggie is being SUCH a good mom ~ keeping the babies spotless!

There is nothing so sweet...

Yes, doxie babies do NOT look like doxies!  They grow the noses as they get bigger ~

A while back, I hostessed (if that wasn't a word, it is now!) a mini-swap for a couple of blogland buddies.  No theme; just any little bit of art that you thought might make someone smile.

First up is this mixed media artwork from the always colorful and talented Erin of Altered by the Sea. The picture doesn't show all the wonderful texture & life of the piece (click to biggify), and the bright cheerful colors brighten wherever it is!

Next is this woven wire heart assemblage from the lovely Carol of Art and Sand.
Her art work is as much fun as her blog and colorful house are! The word tag at the bottom reads "Dream as if you will live forever" ~ a sentiment I love.

Erin & Carol ~ thank you so much for joining me.

My versions of the Tim Holtz tag for July 2014...  (told ya I was slow!) The first shown is one of the first batch I made; I wasn't really happy with the way my faux sand turned out. But I had a lot of fun making them! There were several techniques that were new to me...
As always, click to biggify ~

On later ones, you can see I embossed the background, and changed how I made the sand. I ended up making a total of 14 of these, and though I enjoyed making them, I was glad when I was done!!

I know exactly which of TH's tag I'm going to try next!

Not that I was rooting for NE ~ but I was sure as hell rooting AGAINST Seattle!!!

Love that they lost in THE most humiliating way they possibly could have!
