This And That Tuesday

 I don't have nearly as much to chatter about as I did yesterday but here goes!  Here is what I have been up to since my last post!  I'm really trying to get back into crafting again!  If some of you have wandered over from my "few and far between" Crafting Blog - THANK YOU - I MISS YOU!  If you are a reader of this blog only you may or may not know I enjoy paper crafting and had been getting into Mixed Media the last year or two, too!  I was on several Design Teams and am now on TWO Design Teams that have been VERY patient with me over the last year.  So I figured I would do a little cross promoting here and include a quick project into this blog for today.  For MORE Crafting Stuff visit my other blog which is BlissfulCraftingPlace.com  As for the above photo - it's a small Gift Box I did!  It's made from a punch-out template which I folded, taped, and then added decorative/patterned tape on top and bottom and a fanned Embellishment with a Gem in the center smack-dab in the middle.  It was quick and easy and fun!
 I had mentioned last week that Paco hasn't been slowing down much...well...last night I tried something!  I put one of his sweaters on him and he calmed down right away!  I'll be testing this again SOON!
Here's a look at my dinner last night - YUP!  That's right I already BLEW my Meal Plan! LOL - That's why I like to call them my Meal HOPES.

Whole Grain Bread
Fakin' Bakin' Strips
Russian/Thousand Island Type Dressing (I used Veganese with Ketchup and a bit of Hot Sauce)
Kind of like a Reuben, I guess!

How was your Monday, btw?

Participating Post:


  1. Love the pics of Paco! Makes you wonder if he just runs a lot when he's cold?

    The craft is lovely, too - I admire (put possess no) artistic talent : )

    1. Thanks! I'm thinking that could be part of it! We always have blankets on us so he could go under those while he's out and about. We have a LARGE pen for him while we are not home and sleeping and he loves it. He has 3 blankets in there and he moles himself inside of them! I think I am going to start having him wear his sweaters in the evening now. Usually I only put them on him when we go out.

      Thanks for the kind words on the gift box, too! :)

  2. I love food! Keep the food coming! If it tastes good, I'll eat it. Looks yummy!

    1. Thanks so much Kelly! :)
      LOVE your site, too! I'm following!
