Learning New Things ~

One of the great things about starting my designing business again is the opportunity to learn new things. Today I learned how to make a pdf file, and put a link up on my Needleart Blog so anyone who wants the little freebie chart can download and print their own copy. Here is the picture, and you can click on the link in the right column to go to the From the Heart Needleart Blog and get a copy of the pdf file for your very own. Now you are all set to grab a needle and floss and go learn something new.

 Look at this cute picture I found on my camera. See, I told you he was a sweet boy.

My New Adventure ~

I haven't really talked about it much on my blog, and maybe some of you have figured it out, but here is the big announcement. I have started my cross stitch design business again. I was a designer back in 2000 to 2005 and then started my own business in the fall of 2005. But life got busy and From the Heart Needleart got put on the back burner for a few years. Well, the timing is right and I am back at it. I have several new charts ready to take to the printers and submit to my distributor. It has been lots of fun. There is a link in the right sidebar to my design blog, so you will have to stop on over and see what is going on.

Blog Friends ~

One of the fun things about blogging is getting to "know" other bloggers from around the country. And sometimes there are "Blog Candy" giveaways, which are always fun, especially if you  win.  I just got an email that I was a winner on the At Willow Tree Pond blog. Which makes me think it might be time for a blog giveaway here too.

Future Dog Trainers ~

Yesterday I had a visit from two sweet little girls, and their parents too. Kymber had a dentist visit so Sydni and her dad played at our house awhile. They were so excited to get to see Gus too. These tiny little girls can get him to do whatever they want. He obediently goes to the kennel, or the backyard when they want him to. It is really fun to watch them wrap their little arms around his middle or his big neck and try to get him to move. And the funny thing is, it works! Of course they know where his treats are and he gets double treats when both of them are here. He really is a sweet dog and is so patient with them. Yes, he it totally spoiled, but look at that face. You'd have him spoiled rotten too.
 Look at these cute little pictures of Kaden that Jen took the other night. He is such a happy little boy!

Jen and Kaden ~

 These two looked so cute this morning before they headed off for their day. I just had to get some pictures.  Kaden is almost 9 months old. He just learned patty-cake this weekend and is always smiling, except when you are trying to take is picture or when Gus steals his crackers.
