My favorite Christmas present

Even though I got so spoiled this year with gift certificates, new purses (yes, plural!), makeup, hair accessories, crafting supplies, video games, and a LAPTOP my favorite gift of all time is my new boxer puppy! Not only is he the most amazing and adorable puppy, we have a great story!

A week before Christmas my dad called me on Sunday morning and told me to get ready because he needed help picking out a gift for mom. He picked me up 20 minutes later and we headed off. After driving for about 10 minutes I realized that I had no idea where we were but I was pretty sure we were headed further into a residential community. I didn't ask where we were headed, conversation with dad is too precious to worry about the destination. My dad is a very wise man and I always love hearing what he has to say. All of the sudden dad turned right on to a street with nice houses and yards. I looked to the left and there was the cutest little boxer pup walking around a Florida December lawn (which is still quite green if you are lucky!) I pointed him out to dad and he said "Merry Christmas, Laci. He is yours!" I just started bawling, I could not believe my ears. I was so shocked it took me a minutes to collect myself. I got out of the truck still crying and the momma dog owner was taken by surprise as she had no idea the puppy was a secret. I picked him up and I didn't put him down until I introduced him to the family! He is such a beautiful and smart dog and he has stolen my heart!

Fabric Flower Tutorial

About 4 months ago I made a Talk to me Tuesday video that included fabric flowers. A comment was left asking me to make a video tutorial so several months later I have delivered on that request!

Part 2

It has been a while...

Let's go to Hogwarts!

Shae took me to Universal for my birthday to play around and to see the Rich Weirdos/Sisters of Orlando shadow cast of "The Sound of Music" She knows my love for musicals! It was a blast!
So at Universal in Orlando they are hard at work building the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section of the park and I took some pictures of the progress! I can't wait to see everything, it is going to be a blast! AND I know I can convince Josh to go, Hogsmeade has their own beer!

Hogwarts, more majestic after editing out the Jurassic Park sign!

Snowy Hogsmeade, the only snow in Florida

Ministry Decree, this is serious stuff!

TTMT: ATC Spoilers

Another Tuesday passed and I was still having video issues :( So today when Josh decided to turn off the video games and do a quiet activity I thought I'd try my luck with Super. I have to change the formatting of the video files to work in Windows Movie Maker and I have been having trouble! So finally at midnight I got it to work and WMM accepted the video file! All was right and good with the world! So then I started to edit my video and all hope was lost. Some how when I was setting up my video camera on the tri-pod I hit the record button so there was a minute and a half of me fiddling around with my crafts and then about another minute of me playing with my hair and then when I *thought* I was pressing record I actually paused the unit and talked to myself for 6 minutes with nothing to show for it. After "recording" I changed into pajamas and got ready to edit! I was so sad to see three minutes of nothing! So instead of letting these electronics and my blond streak break my spirit, I jumped back on my horse and showed my crafts again, this time actually recording! So without further ado, redressed Laci with crappy hair (it looked so good the first time after fluffing for a minute, and I have the video to prove it!)

Fun and delayed craftiness...

Well look at that, I have already been neglecting my new blog! Not entirely on purpose though, I had a birthday and a serious amount of crafting as a result of said birthday. I want to share pictures and video but I am having a major video fail STILL! I recorded a Talk to me Tuesday video on Tuesday and I could not get the files encoded properly to be worked with in Microsoft Movie Maker blah blah blah. We have all had video fail, I am sure, but this is ridiculous! I have recorded the footage twice and reinstalled Super twice. So... I will leave you with some fun pictures and a promise of craftiness to follow shortly, I will make these programs work together whether they like it or not!

Here are two pictures of my fish tank, 70 gallon freshwater. See how my cutie Pacu has grown? The first one was taken about 10 months ago and the second was taken last week. The Kissing Gourami is still the same size!

There's a frog on the couch!! That happens in Florida springs and summers! The frogs are officially out and ready to play! They are always right outside the door this time of year because the big lights at my complex attract bugs. YUMMO!

And of course my husband Josh had to pose with the froggy, what a ham!
