Make A Wish...

Its a little blurry but i love it just the same!
We've taking the puppers out a lot lately, enjoying the lovely leaves that are so pretty! Taking the girls for walks has been a of fun lately. I can just feel the excitement in my daughters. such a lovely feeling! We aren't even a block from home and kira is asking for piggy rides! I have the dog in one hand. he's about all i can handle! So kaci always offers :)
this is my puppers. Apollo. kaci took this one. we are about 3 blocks from our house and kira thinks we need a break ha! it must be this spot, a week ago some guy stopped here to talk to me about Apollo, :) Asking about what kind of dog he was (american and english bulldog mix) saying how he was a beautiful dog, (he is!) and telling me about his dogs. hi make old englishe dog passed away a few weeks ago :( the kids had taken him to the park and the dog didn't get enough to drink while he was playing. he ended up having a heart attack. it was sad! anyway! the guy was super nice. it was a very nice compliment.and this is what Apollo looks like after his walk. ha! is my news i've been soooo excited about! i have wanted to do little mini kits and embellishment kits. I love sharing random little finds that make me think, 'that would be so fun so scrap with!' my sister is supposed to be helping me, wink, wink. :) but she is super busy right now. she is taking a nursing course and working full time. but she will (i hope) be joining me soon!
These are my first set of embellie kits. check out my etsy shop for a detailed list of goodies. i finally decided to jump in and put them out there. Kara and the girls at THe Art is Found had a post up looking for sponsors for their challenges. i thought to myself, this may be a great time to stick my neck out there and try to fly! haha. so yep, i get to sponsor the prompt this time around. can you believe how excited i was? Thank you Kara so much!
so...yes. my blog title has meaning behind it today... make a wish. it may come true on its own. sometimes you need to work a little or a lot for it. but maybe... little by little it will come true. cross your fingers! xoxo danielle

here's to lazy sundays

ahhh, today i plan for a good day. sundays are the best. and today i have plans. yay! i've been very inspired lately. so i'm very excited to see what i get done. the very best part? it's thundering out! my favorite! rain storms and creative*ness, oh yes :D creative? yes, i thought i'd try out doing something lovely with my hair. i liked it a lot. i couldn't get any good photos of it inside, so i asked the boy to take some outside. i felt silly asking him, why i don't know.but he did a good job. this one is my fave.

and here's one of us together chiilin' on the
porch swing. love that thing!its also that time again when i need to take kira's pictures. the home photo
shoot didn't go so well. i got one of her. but it wasn't quite the shot i wanted. but i got a good one of teddy :) i think he may be smiling, a little. ha! anyway i thought i'd give the portrait studio another chance. it actually didn't go half bad! i only got a few good shots, but hey, that's better than none. i will show those off sometime soon. the poor thing. kira, for some reason has weak teeth. she had a molar cave in on her last week :( she cried for 2 hours! i had to take her to the dentist. she's only 3 and a half mind you. and there are no children's dentist around here. so the regular dentist did what he could. thank goodness! and she behaved a million times better than i ever thought she would. hooray! so we will see how she behaves when i take her to the childrens dentist :)
i got a few updates for my etsy, i know, it's been looking bare and dusty for quite some time. but i got a few things for it. and i have tons today that i'm working on for it! so excited. this is my rock star blanket i put in there. i love, love the colors. nice and snuggly for those chilly nights! friend and i had a rummage sale and i made a few handmade journals to sell. i've got some left over that i put in the etsy. i love these little things! they are soo cute! great for notes and ideas and sketches.
one more thing. me and this lovely girl are dreaming up big ideas for mini scrapping kits. these have really been getting my blood moving! wish us luck! i can't wait for them to totally come together. it's been so fun looking around, searching out cute little tid bits here and there. i can't wait! i just hope it works out! well i'm off. lots of creative*ness to do before those ideas float out the window with the rain. i have those ideas written down, but sometimes its just not the same. xoxo, des
