Here is a cute 'just moved' card that I made for my recent move.

Halloween Cupcakes!

We all win

After a few weeks of poor Twix being tormented I think we have a solution that will keep everyone happy (for the most part).  In order to keep us happy and sleeping with out waking up to growling or snarling we moved a litter box into our bedroom and would keep Twix in with us for the night.  That was a fine temporary solution but didn't make it any better for Twix at other times of the day.  The poor girl was just terrified all the time! 

To make her happy we now have the obstacle each time we use the stairs of a baby gate.  Twix gets the upstairs and Ben gets the downstairs.  Food and litter are in both locations.  You might say that a cat can jump a baby gate and in theory yes they can.  Although cats can jump that high they need something to land on at the peak of the jump and they don't hurdle things that large.  It has been 5 days and so far that theory holds true.

We had to be strategic with the placement of the gate.  We tried the top of the stairs because we didn't…

Who wins?

I don’t know what happened while we were at work yesterday but Ben all of a sudden decided he was going to lay down the law with Twix. For the past 2 ½ weeks Twix has kind of done her own thing and not paid any attention to Ben or Reese. This whole time Ben and Reese have been ‘working things out’…as much as Joe doesn’t want to admit it I think Reese has told Ben that he’s ruling the roost. Ben must have been taking good notes because he’s taken what Reese was doing to him and has started doing it to Twix.

We were finishing dinner and Ben and Twix were in the kitchen not even near each other. Ben started meowing at her so she started growling and hissing back. Twix started to walk out of the main kitchen area but had to go past Ben to do this so in making her long way around him she ended up getting herself backed into a corner. The meowing and hissing continued and Reese came in to rescue her…he really wouldn’t do that because they just tolerate each other but alas by him coming to i…


Well, I am in the process of making the big move to Joe's.  My biggest worry was the cats and how Reese and Twix would get along with Ben.  It's been about 2 weeks and so far for cats I think it's been pretty good.  They are still figuring each other out but the hissing and growling has calmed down a lot.  Reese is actually starting to chase Ben on occasion so I'm not sure what's going on there.  I know one of the times Reese just wanted to play because he started chasing me after Ben cowered to him so we played and ran around for a while.  With 3 cats the vacuum will definitely be used a lot more!!

This is the first time moving a's not fun.  I've actually done a pretty good job over the past few years of getting rid of things I really don't use or want but still there is a lot of stuff that you can fit into a 4 bedroom home!!  We still have a few projects to finish at my house before it goes on the market and hopefully that will all be done b…

Grandma's 90th BD favor

I made 50 of these as favors for my Grandma Henning's 90th birthday party. She loves cards and we all remember the Oatmeal cookies she made. I thought the Queen of hearts was the appropriate card to make :) Thanks Laura for sending me your Sizzix Q since the letters I had were to big!

Not sure

I'm not really sure yet what this will turn into. It seems like so many people have blogs and I've found all kinds of creative things. I decided that I should create a blog so I can watch or follow (whatever it's called!) instead of having a ton of bookmarks. I am just wrapping up my latest project so I will post pictures when it's done. It's a party favor for my grandma's 90th birthday party.
