Cornhusker Marching Band Supporter

Oct 30: Last week Mom got some ‘happy mail’ from her friend Susan in AZ. I have never met Susan, only seen her on the computer when Mom watches her videos. I called it ‘happy mail’ as Mom squealed when she opened the envelope.

Here is Mom wearing what came in the envelope:


Susan sent her a Nebraska Band shirt. Mom wore it proudly on Saturday when she watched the NE football game. The game was fun to watch, I enjoyed curling up on Mom’s lap. Mom loves watching for band sightings! This week there were several band sightings and some good ones of the piccolo section.

Fall Frenzy Continues ….

Oct 25: Day one has been very successful, Mom tells me that  lots of pages getting done! These are being displayed over on the Scrapy Land Message Board.

Day two brings a new twist – a card to use up scraps. I help Mom use up her scraps, I am always picking up paper in her scrap room, but not sure Mom can use it after I get it!

Mom’s friend Gail did a card using this sketch, I think it is perfect for Halloween.

Scrapy Land Fall Frenzy!

Oct 24: Mom is very excited today. She and Pat spend some time over the weekend to clear off Mom desk. This was in preparation of something called Fall Frenzy over on the Scrapy Land blog.

Apparently this is a very fun event! Mom says that she is looking forward to Susan’s LIVE shows that have been planned for this week.

Here a peek at the schedule Susan posted on the Scrapy Land blog.


So Mom tells me that there will be Challenges, LIVE shows and PRIZES! There was some talk about something called ‘chocolate’. Not sure what that is, but Pat brought home several different kinds!

Okay, have to go now and see what Mom is doing.

Take care

Scrapy Land Exclusives

Oct 3: Mom told me that she was very privileged that she was able to make some projects with some of the Scrapy Land exclusives that have just been released.

If you want to see what nice things Susan said about my Mom and Gail (Mom’s friend form VA) you can check out the Scrapy Land blog.

First Mom worked on a card using the Rocket ship and she made a card and a page.


She used October Afternoon paper for both the card and the layout of sweet Brodie.


Her next assignment was to use the Race Car and the Grand Prix dies. Mom had just the plan! Pat spent some time at a place called Frankies with some of her co-workers. She had some fun on the Go-Karts.


The last thing I have to show you today is the card that Mom made.


Take care!

Baking Surprise–Part 3

Oct 2: Who thought that this baking business would go on so long! Mom and Pat spent some time at the dinning room table last night. I thought they were eating all the Ghost cookies, but I was wrong, they were working more magic! They had these funny white bags that they pointed at the cookies and look what happened. They really look like ghost now!


They didn’t have to go to all that work, I would have been happy with them without all that white stuff on them. Hmmmm, it is looking more and more that Pat and Mom didn’t make the cookies for me.


So I guess nothing for me to do but go lie on my bed (I’m not sulking, really!).

Take care.

Witchy Legs

Oct 1: Well here it is October! Hard to believe that the year is going so fast! Mom tells me that October is a fun month and is full of Tricks, Treats, Witches and Goblins!

Mom had some fun in her studio over the last little while making a couple of cards that she will be mailing to some friends and family. She left these on the counter and I thought that I would share them with you – I know that Mom won’t mind.




Mom used Copics to color these funny witches legs and skirts. She then used Stickles to outline the skirts, dots on the legs and the fun area on the boots!

Take care.
