Bailey's new duds...

It was really blustery here today so Bailey got to wear his new duds --- a cute li'l corduroy jacket. Doesn't he look as "cute as a button"?? ;-)

He also has a rainjacket and......................are you ready for it?? -- a Santa outfit. Yeppers! He's gonna be "Jolly Ol' Bailey" (tee-hee), but you'll have to wait 'til Christmas to see that pic. ;-)

Bailey was a "HERO", today!

My li'l Bailey Bud never ceases to amaze me. This morning he was a "hero" in our neighbourhood. A li'l pup had escaped from an older couple who were at their wit's end of getting him back into the yard. They even called their daughter who drove over but she couldn't even catch him. He was just racing around the neighbourhood.

Then Bailey and I happened on the "scene". The li'l pup immediately ran to Bailey, but they still couldn't grab their pup. Sooooooo, Bailey marched into their garage, w/ the pup following him. They immediately closed the garage door, trapping him inside. Then they opened the door to the house, let him in, thanked us profusely, and Bailey got a treat for being a "hero". :-)

You should've seen him pouncing down the street, and then continuously looking back at me, as if saying:- "I did good, eh, momma?" Tooooo cute! ;-)

Martha Stewart Score Board

Yeahhhh! I finally got a score board. I soooo wanted to get the original ScorPal, but it was waaaaay too expensive ($50.00+) and I couldn't justify spending that money for just a scoring tool. Then, dear sweet Martha came out w/ her version of a score board. In my opinion, I find this one a lot better as it has the 1/8 inch increments. Those who have the ScorPal were missing this feature on theirs. Plus.....Martha's board comes w/ an envelope template. Even tho some people have said that, when scoring, they go out of the track --- when I tried mine, I didn't have that problem at all. (You may be able to see the score lines on the orange cardstock, in the 3rd. pic.) My guess is that they were used to a deeper groove on the ScorPal and, when they were pushing on the Martha one, the scoring tool was slipping out of the track. But I absolutely LOVE mine.

I did have one li'l problem w/ it tho:- that was the fact that the envelope template is really tight in it's li'l holder on the back of the board. Soooooo tight that it's really hard to pull out and I discovered that others had the same problem.

But....I solved that li'l problem by getting a zippered container for the Board. I keep the envelope template in a zippered compartment in the container. Works like a charm!!

To give you an idea of what it all looks like, check this out.....
Scrapboook portfolio was only $9.00. (yeahhh!) It's made by "Generations" and I purchased it from our Great Canadian Dollar Store.

When opened:- the left side in the pic shows an accordion pocket folder for 12" x 12" paper. The score board fits perfectly in this zippered portfolio. (shown on the right) Just flip the left side over the right side, zipper it up and you're "good to go"! ;-)

The right side in the pic shows two zippered compartments. One where I store the envelope template; while the other has the pamphlet of ideas/instructions how to make various cards. Seeing as I'm a "keeper of all things" as you can see from my craft/sewing room (LOL), I also kept the cardboard backing to the package, as it has the instructions for making the envelopes. The score board has a compartment (top front) for storing your scoring tool. Also, inside the compartment was a sticker of a chart showing you the different dimensions needed for different cards, along w/ where to score. This chart was "stickered" on the inside lid of the compartment but I found it really hard to see, so I moved it to the top of the compartment. Works a lot better for me! You might be able to see it in the above pic.

All in all, I LOVE my new Martha Stewart scoring board. It was regular $30.00 (here in Canada). I believe it's only $20.00 in the USA. I used a 50% off coupon at Michael's and got the li'l gem for only $15.00. Can't beat a deal like that.

Thank you MARTHA STEWART for coming up w/ this great tool!!! ;-)

New addition to my li'l room

Oh my, where am I ever going to put this li'l gem? Oh I'm sure I'll find a spot. (LOL) I couldn't pass it up, cuz it was only $10.00. I'm going to use it for my "Cricut Station", storing my "E", Create, and Juke Boxes. It's on castors, so can be moved around, as well. And....hopefully I can get the lonnnnnng Juke Box cord, so I'll really be in business. ;-)
