The Boys...Max and Cooper Pictures

 Little Max and Cooper
Faces of innocence....?!
 With their Bully sticks... serious business
"But mom how could you think we would do that?"

AND for your "video" enjoyment..... another wild and  and dizzy video
awaits you here  I must add that the stairs
will soon have a baby gate as the balcony above has rails they can slip under.
We have a temporary fix that Max has found a way around. Of course he has....
Life with the pups every moment exciting.

Tip Toe Through the Tulips

 Saturday we drove up to La Conner to see
the gorgeous tulips.
 They did  what they do every year.... make me ow and ah.
The colors are fantastic, especially against the mountains and blue sky.
 Row after row! I was told that they shipped out over 21 million bulbs each year.
We dined on the deck of one of my favorite restaurants. What a perfect day.

Filling My Journals

This is a page I just finished  for my Sketchbook Diet journal group.
My son is a vegetarian and loves this recipe. So do I.

This is Madison Alexander.
I sketched him from a quilt I am making honoring this sweet cat.
I am using this sketch and painting for my Documented Life Project, this week.
Which was: Monochromatic: use shades tints and hues of one color.
Hard to tell but this is all blues. Camera just didn't catch it.

Here is the quilt I am working on.
It is called 
"The Many Moods of Madison"
In case you are interested here is the story of Madison
in a nutshell.

  This is a gold star day for the boys!
They went potty outside. YES!!!!
AND they now have names. Let me introduce them properly
weighing in at 5 pounds
green eyes, pink nose
a real lover
weighing in at 4 pounds 4 ounces
dark brown eyes
pink and black nose
a little dickens

Both boys are well loved and spoiled to the extreme. 
They love their vet and charmed everyone at the appointment
last Saturday!
 I am trying to get a new video but they are hard to catch.
Actually you would get a kick out of watching me trying to handle 
2 leashes. I shall be buying a coupling next trip to the pet store.

Just Fun Doodles

Today while the boys napped I decided to give this a try. What fun I had and oh dear me I 
think it's addicting!
I have enjoyed the art of Paivi from Finland for quite some time now. So I gave it a try. You just get hooked and keep adding and adding. You end up with wonderful art papers you created yourself. 
You can find her here:  But I warning you you will get hooked.
I am already waiting for their next nap......

Busy week ...All Caught UP Now ...I Think!

Had a lot of painting to do today and I like to play music while I paint.
So I came across this video with this wonderful dog and the puppies really liked it
so I played it over and over while they listened and fell asleep. I love the video 
especially when they rescued that dog and he had a great lunch sitting
there on the bench. Didn't hurt that they have wonderful voices. So I share 
it with you, I know you'll like it. There are dogs in it, whats not to like!
Now for catching up...
The bird above was for the Documented Life Project week 11
Collage a bird onto your page.
Week12 DLP Cut up magazines-add to page
week 12 continued
Week 13 DLP Ask someone else to draw on your page- then finish it.
My son drew the Crab Pit and left me to finish it... his sense of humor, sorry Brad
Week 14 DLP write your name and embellish it.
So now I am all caught up.
Puppies are a joy and so full of energy.
Video soon
Sorry for such a long post......what's a girl gonna do.

Ninja Puppies on the Loose

This is just a few seconds of their
fun filled day.  Hope you don't 
get to dizzy watching as I had a 
hard time keeping up.

After watching this video you will understand 
Ah yes !
But I have found some music that
they like and fall asleep to. :-)
"Have you painted anything this week?, you ask.
Silly question.....

Documented Life Project for week 9 (wee bit late)

For this week we were suppose to 
collage something you have recycled.
So first the Savage Beagle matchbook. I
 picked this up at  their restaurant in 
Whistler Village, BC while on a ski trip
many moons ago. I just loved the name!
Also added recycled watercolor papers
from a painting I did and didn't like. So I
cut it up into circles and added them along 
with left over Japanese papers I had.
YES I am a pack rat.
So now I am all caught up. 
And for those who want to know...
