~ Christmas Blog Hop ~

Hi ! How is everyone? I hope all is great in everyone's world. :)  The Pride has been in the holiday spirit and busy making our very own homemade Christmas ornaments.  We hope to inspire all of you to create something that you can show off as part of your Christmas decor.
    This year I went completely out of my realm and made my Christmas tree colorful ! I was really scared of what it would look like, but I'm soooo happy with how it is turning out... I have a bit more I need to do to it, then I will be able to post pictures. I want to know what you guys think of it of course ! :) ... So for my ornaments I went a lil funky. (at least I think so)  I created lil crocheted birds. I just LOVE birds !!! I added some feathers and a lil beak to complete the look and I really like them. :) My baby also had to create one of his own, so I made him the body and let him pick out the feathers he wanted.  After he chose his colors I had him place them where he wanted them to go and I glued them down... I must say... I think I like his lil bird better than the two I made ! His is soooo going on my tree.  okay so enough talking about all that, on with the hope ! If you have pounced here first please prowl back a lil bit to My Lady's blog to see the ornament she has created.  Now for some pics of the lil birdies me and my son made :) hope you like :)

My pink & black bird (her name is Cro)
 My pink & green bird (and her name is Shae)
 So there are my lil birdie ornaments, Cro & Shae ... get it? lol ;)

No here is my baby's Beautiful multicolored bird...I LOVE it !!!  He put head feathers on his ! and made it look like it was flying by putting the two purple feathers on the sides!... I was like, Why didn't I think of that ! lol

I'm not the only one that loved Brandon's bird. My Lady's puppy, Fernando, wanted to get a hold of it sooo bad ! he kept his eye on it and actually took it from Brandon's hand once.  My baby freaked out! as did I lol... but no harm was done :) ... animals were harmed in this posting haha

Thank you so much for hopping with The Pride ! Now you can pounce over to Kimi's Blog to check out her ornament!

The Prides Thanksgiving Blog HoP

Hi everyone ! so I have been gone a while I know :( and I hate it .. but ! I now have internet! very happy about this. I'm really going to try and make time to post more like I used to.  now getting to the fun stuff.  This month the Pride is bringing to you our Thanksgiving Hop...the theme was Thanksgiving or fall and it was to be something you could decorate your home with.  I thought this was a cool idea because we often make items to either sell or give away, and this is something we can enjoy ourselves.  I decided to make a very simple lil votive cover to set on my kitchen table :) my son watched me make it and told me he really liked it.  so I'm completely happy with it because I was given his approval ;) I do plan on making two more so I can put them together and place them in the center of the table with some flowers around them.  If I don't post before Thanksgiving I want to wish you a very Blessed day surrounded by your loved ones and full of yummy food.  ....If you have stopped here first on this hop please pounce backwards to My Lady's Blog to see what kind of beautiful creation she came up with.  Ok, now for some pictures of my lil creation. 

I also wanted to show off the place mat my baby helped make at school... this will Definitely be on my table ! :)

So there it is.  Simple I know :) but I like it.   Now pounce over to Kimi's Blog to see what she has in her Den to show off !! :)   Thank you Everyone so much for hopping along with us.

~ Strut Your Style ~

Hi people ... I hope everyone is doing Great ! This month The Pride, Just a Few Friends, is doing a mini blog hop with a "Strut your Style" theme.  Now if you know anything about me, you know that I love Black and Red and anything with birds on it.  Well, this time I'm not using those usual colors.  I'm showing the more funky side.  I have made a mini album with oranges, browns, greens, blues, pinks, ... tons of colors !! When I'm not admiring shades of Red and Black I'm Loving the dark bright colors lol . :)  I will have to upload a video of this mini to my YouTube so you can see it better.  I designed this fold to hold 11 photos per page (13 if you count the big tag.)   If you haven't seen Elsa's Blog be sure to check her out, so not to miss anything ! :)
Here are a few photos. :)

 Thank you for stopping by ! :)  Now pounce over to Kimi's Blog to check out what she has to share.

~ Waiting For The Storm ~

If you have been watching the news, you know that there is a Hurricane heading my way.  We are in the beautiful stage, at least in my opinion, of the storm.  Its nice and overcast out, windy, and Rain is coming !! Just pray there is no damage to my house !!!  Anyways... moving on to some crafty stuff.  I have made some cute Halloween beanies that I just LOVE ... My son, Brandon, really liked the ghost one, so I'm finishing one up for him, should be done later today.  Here are the Halloween beanies I have completed so far.  (((  Check out my Etsy shop to see my other creations :)  )))

Here is the Ghost :)

Lil' Frankenstein
More Halloween beanies are in the making :)  Take Care !!!
This one isn't Halloween, but wanted to share anyways :) ... Its a camo one ..

~ Happy 4th Of July ~

 Happy 4th of July everyone ! I hope your day goes perfectly... We are going down town to watch " The big fireworks that take up the sky ! " , as my baby says :)  I love the big BOOM! noise they make ... its my favorite part. :)   So now moving on to the crafty stuff.  The Pride has been busy creating Stars and Stripes themed projects.  This month, like last month, I have stepped out of the box and made something other than a card or layout.  I have made Pinwheels.  yessss Pinwheels ! never made them before, but I am happy with how they turned out.  I think they would look cute as table decor for the 4th of July feast ! :)  Oh! I almost forgot , if you have landed here first be sure to take a jump back to My Mother's blog to be sure you don't miss anyone in the line up :) ... Now for my pictures ...

~ Father's Day Keep-Sake-Picture Box ~

Hi everyone. :)  Time for another Pride project ... This months project is Father's Day themed.  I decided I would try and change it up a bit, and make something other than a card, since that seems to be all I make...  What I made is a keep-sake-picture box.  I will be putting a card inside, and adding pictures of my son on three sides of the box.  I hope you like what I've come up with :) ...
   We have added new Cubs to the Pride, so start at my Mothers blog so that you can see the new line up ! :) Have fun prowling through everyone's Den! ... Now for pictures of my box.

(I used bolts,washers, and screws to pull in the "manly" feel :) I love the screws as the feet !! )
Thanks for stopping by :) Now you can pounce over to Kimi's Blog to check out what beautiful creations she has to show off.
