News to Share!

It has been a long and somewhat difficult summer for me. After returning home from the beach in the beginning of July, my beloved Cocker Spaniel, Tawnee Renee, passed away. Anyone who has ever owned a pet has experienced the loss of pet. Tawnee was with our family for 13 years and I loved that dog like she was a child. That was even how I felt about her, as my third child. Even though the loss of my Tawnee broke my heart, after about 6 weeks I realized I needed to get another dog. I am a dog lover at heart and the thought of not having one of my own made the pain of losing Tawnee that much worse.

So, I would like to introduce my new puppy, Ruby Renee Rojas. She is named after the ruby slippers in my favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz, and also named Renee in honor of Tawnee Renee. Ruby is a 9 week old miniature Dachshund. She is black and tan and she looks just like my son’s dog, Coca Cola. She is absolutely adorable! And although I haven’t had much sleep in the last week, I am so glad that I got her.

The summer also brought the Craft and Hobby Association’s summer show in Rosemont, Ill. The show was great! Stayed tuned for some more information I will be sharing about the show, some companies I liked, and some great product!

Last and certainly not least, I have some exciting news about two new business ventures I have started. In June, I began a blog at Memory Keeping Collections website with 5 other scrapbook experts, Lisa Bearson, Eileen Hull, Jennifer Goode, Michelle Cummings, and Candice Windham. Be sure you stop by at and check out what these other wonderful ladies and I have to say about scrapbooking and other craft related topics!

The second venture I want to share is about a HUGE Sizzix Blog Hop that I will be participating in with 50 other professional designers. If you enjoyed the last blog hop we did with Sizzix, you don’t want to miss this one. We will be starting on Wednesday, November 3rd and it will run for 7 weeks. We will be highlighting a new die each week. Just think about it. You can get 50 different ideas for each die, each week! I am so excited about this and I hope that you’ll stop by each week to see what fabulous projects we all come up with. It’s going to be GREAT!!!

Thanks for joining me. Until next time…

I am getting a mini male black and tan dachshund the week of Thanksgiving. He will be 8 weeks old. Is that a puppy apartment in your pictures? How have you liked that?Does it work like advertised? and what size did you get for your darling little Ruby?

Hi Elizabeth,

Congratulations on getting a doxie puppy! We now have 4 in our family and love each them so much. They're great dogs to have and I know you'll be so happy with him. In answer to your question, yes that is a crate in the picture. We use them with all of our girls and we love them. The sizes we have are medium and it gives them plenty of room to move around in. If you're thinking about crating your puppy, my advise is to read up about it and know what you're getting into first before you buy. I hope that helps. Good luck with your new puppy!
