I have this blog as a place to share my creative self -- be it card making, music playing, scrapbooking, altered art, home decor, or whatever direction my art takes me. My dogs are always a part of my home life, so they have to be a part of my blog, too.

She doesn't even know it's way below zero!
Read on, Lucy Loo, read on!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
