Weekend Review Aug 7th!

What a whirlwind! Summer is definitely in full swing as I try to stay caught up to all of the fun, sun and socializing! I am LOVING every minute of it, though it is cutting down on my creative time!

Last week my family spent time at Disney World! We had a FABULOUS time and I easily convinced my daughter (and her friend) to journal each day so that we could create an album when we got home. We purchased postcards each day of the trip that represented where we were and then added a second journalling card when the day was so busy that we overran the postcard. My intent is (was) to bind all of the postcards together with pictures that we took and voila! Instant scrapbook!

Now, you may be noticing a lack of pictures of this wondrous scrapbook?! That is because the postcards are on a plane, or in the garbage or SOMEWHERE between Florida and Calgary. Quin was journalling en-route and sadly left everything behind somewhere.

I'll continue to call airport lost and found, but my guess is that  I will be searching for some Disney and Universal postcards so that we can re-create the project!

The good news is, that my souvenir of the trip arrived home safe and sound!! Meet Sweetums, our new Yorkie puppy!

She is a lovely little 5 month old Yorkshire Terrier puppy, and we are very happy to add her to our family. My husband LOVES the name Sweetums, NOT, but it really does suit her!

Sweetums is named after the Ogre Muppet. I have always been a big fan of the Muppets and the combination of sweet puppy and ogre-ish behavior is PERFECT for this tiny fur ball!

Notice the resemblance?!
Sweetums eat frog! 
Happy summer days to everyone! Hopefully we will have many more sunny days in August!



  1. Oh my goodness, Sweetems is so adorable! I just want to hug him.
    Sorry about your postcards, hope you get them back.

  2. Hi Heather!

    I just stumbled onto your blog and was enjoying your posts about Sweetums! We have more than the cricut in common... I, too, just got a Yorkie pup! She is 12 weeks old and my daughter named her (don't laugh), "Cricket". Partly because of my obsession with the cricut and partly because she hops around like a little cricket. lol! Your Sweetums is just adorable! Take care!

    PS: I'm going to Disney World next month... want me to pick up some postcards for you? Email me a list at cc.ladybug@yahoo.com

  3. Hey Tammy! Toooo fun that you also have a Yorkie! We are LOVING Sweetums and so happy to have her as part of our family! Our puppy hops around too, it is the funniest thing ever isn't it! Cricket is a suitable name for sure!!lol

    Thanks for the post card offer! I ended up scanning Quin's friends postcards (she came with us and also collected some for an album) and so eventually/hopefully Quin will re-write hers and we can finish the project. Have a great time and be sure to try the butter beer!!!
