Been busy today redesigning my DVD cover ... also the front of the box image and even ordered some new business cards from Vistaprint. They do a great job.  I've gone all pink roses, pink/mauve  background with white dots and roses for the actual DVD.  A pretty start to my 2014 productions...  :-))   Time seems to go by so quickly I haven't really gotten around to it through January or most of February.

The sun is out today ...  if only it wasn't so cold out there. Minus 25 or so is awful.  Hand sticks to the metal door knob and I have to get the bird seed out of the metal shed .... again I stick to the handle of the door ...and it's really so cold that it takes  your breath away.  Icicles inside your nose, and hands with or without gloves become so cold and sore I often can't wait to get back indoors and put my hands under the hot water .....   It's also the time I wish I had fur on my nose like my beautiful furry friends out there.   They are stunningly gorgeous ... deer .. with long eyelashes and the biggest brown eyes I've ever seen.  Big ears, and when you are up close to them their coats are very furry and thick.    And I love how they seem to be walking on tip toes like ballet dancers in slow motion.  Slow perhaps when I'm talking to them but off like a flash when Blue, the dog from next door, comes around the corner of his yard and scares them.  I think they know he can't get out .. they don't run back far .. but I love to see them leaping across the field in big hops.

I'm anxiously waiting for my business cards to arrive and also some pretty new red DVD cases also my new coffee table pictured below.  They don't call them coffee tables anymore.... now they are occasional tables. I really like this one with the drawer underneath ... and shelves ...







Olympics over .. so glad nothing bad happened.  It was most enjoyable and looking out our window here in northern Canada it looked like we were in Sochi ... snow and ice everywhere. 

Some circular images from my Etsy shoppe. Pocket mirrors, tags, labels, cupcake toppers, all sorts of uses for these....  There's a 50% off sale till Easter ... throughout my shoppe.

Such a kind and generous man. You can always judge a man by how he treats animals. My dad was so soft hearted when it came to all animals. He loved them all so much so I guess that's where I got my love of them from.   These lucky puppies will have a life unlike hundreds if not thousands of them that were doomed to be killed by the Russians before and during the Olympic games.   I sure hope some more have been saved.

For U.S. Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy, the Olympics are about more than just earning medals for his country. The silver medalist freestyle skier is doing his part to help the numerous stray dogs that populate the streets of Sochi. When Kenworthy came across four puppies and their mother on the streets, he just couldn’t leave them behind. He tweeted a picture of the puppies with the caption “Puppy love is real to puppies.”

A pretty lady for you.  In amongst the real blooms and the fabric and ceramic ones.

Have you been watching the Olympics.  Loved seeing the little Russian girl skating... she was so clever and so very pretty.   I'm also enjoying the young guys on the snow boards and of course the ski-ing.  Speed skating and an interesting fact is that three sisters from Canada are competing in the mogul .. where they bump their way down the slope and you wonder if their knees are going to go through their chins.

This morning I just wanted to say thank you.
To all the visitors I get from all over the world.  When I watch the cycling on the television and they are in countries around the globe I often wonder ... is there someone in that house I see on the hill.... who has visited my blog.  The list of visitors grows daily ... and some from places I have never heard of.  It's wonderful to see where your country is on the little circling globe at the bottom of my blog.  I'm so happy that you find my blog interesting and perhaps grab some of the pretty things I share.   So thank you all again for coming to visit ...  you keep me company up here in the snowy, and very cold woods of British Columbia, Canada.  I'm beginning to think I'd like to be a bear and hibernate from the cold ....  I could eat chocolate and all things I love and get really fat .. then sleep for the whole winter and wake up half my weight.  lol

Superbowl watching isn't easy for an Aussie who doesn't understand the American rules.  Lots of fun though ... poor hubby gets questions right, left and centre as I try and plod my way around the efforts and actions of players on both teams.  I barracked for the Seattle Seahawks really only because the colours of their uniforms matched my favourite team back in Australia. Can't wait for that to happen.  Also the Olympics are not far away so I'll be glued to the telly to watch the ski-ing and speed skating, also the board riders who are very clever young things.  Go the Aussies is all I can say... well .... go the Canadians too I guess seeing I'm an honorary Canadian now.   lol

I've been making some new background papers for my Etsy Shoppe.    They come in 12 x 12 inch size and also A4 (8.5 x 11).  Lots of ways to use them.
