Now our Libby is the rescue dog we have and love her and she is indeed part of the family. A very very tendered hearted young lady. You may wonder how we named her? When we got her from the pound they had named her Sally, nothing against the name Sally but she didn't look like one to me. The vet said you might as well rename her because there is no telling what her name was. I ran a little contest on FB for someone to come up with a name. My friend Carolyn came up with Libby, we liberated her from the pound. I do believe she was meant for us, they had had her from June and it was a November that we discovered this beautiful and loving animal. We have had her I think 2 years now. So that is how she got her name. See ? An interesting little story about Libby.
Here is Libby a great and happy fur baby. Now we have another fur baby Jewel and will talk about her soon. She and Libby bonded and hunt rabbits and gophers in the yard and always up to something. We were blessed to have found this baby.
I know that I was named after one of the Dionne Quints that were born on May 28, 1934 in Canada. Their names were Yvonne, Ceile, Emilie, Marie and Annette. So hence I was Annette . I bet you were wondering that. Right? Now my middle name is Juanita and didn't know what it stood for. Then one day Hubby and I were watching Romancing the Stone and the writers name on the movie was Joan Wilder. Then they said Juanita when the introduced Joan Wilder to some people on the movie, so I guess my middle name was after my mother.
I am taking a class called Life Book on Willowing with Tammy and several wonderful artists. Week 21 is with Rhomany in mixed media lettering. Well of course I watched the video and kind of went off on my own direction. Sort of the lesson but not? I bet some of you do that also, putting your own spin on it.
Here is my version of Rhomany's lesson, I had to girlie it up some. I was going to make it red or magenta but it just formed it's own self this color. I had this pretty paper in the background FOREVER and never wanted to use it becasue it was so pretty. I know that is like a silly goose but I have lots of treasures like that. I don't know if I am saving for a rainy day or what but I did grit my teeth and thought I will use this paper. In the little box on the bottom right we are suppose to write about ourselves with 10 words that we thought of about ourselves. Good or bad just words. I could think of words about hubby, the grands and the furbabies but didn't think that would count. Soooooo I decorated it and just left it blank. All these little areas you see are cut out. A true test of patience. I have one of the cheapie exacto knives that are given out free, the kind that you break off the blade when dull, it worked good.
Oh don't forget to go to May 12th and sign up for my give a way. The dead line is coming up. Just some FYI for you.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today. xoxoox
