Many thanks to Gilby and his Mom, Wendy, for inviting us to this walk and for fetching these cool treats!!!  Lots of hard work putting this together…and big Whooofs go to the fabulous sponsors who tossed us these awesome treats!!!! 

...so grab that leash again..it’s time to start walking!
The theme of today’s walk is “Makeover.”  Don’t you love those makeover shows on T.V. where the place is a mess one minute and then 30mins later the place is like new?!  Well, we do…Mom has been working very late all month, because of this...
She would come home in a rather cross mood after dealing with all this paper...She told me that it's all this boring black and white paper that drives her to make colorful cards and scrapbooking.  Anyway, this past week, Mom finished her year end work, and now her desk at work looks like this!

Nice, huh?!  Now that Mom has cleared her desk off at work, she and I started sniffing around our house..and came across THIS pile of doggie…um!  Well…

 Our DVD shelf in our Rec Room was a WRECK!  Doesn’t this look much better?!


One night, as I was chilling out by Mom's feet as she was creating a card for her friend in our craft closet....Suddenly, I sniffed this…………ugh!
Over the past few years, we have saved our digital photos on CD’s…. A doggie up the street told me about these things called an external drive, so I suggested that Mom.  It's nice and toasty to sit on... :) 

It’s amazing how many years worth of photos we came across.  That’s when I nuzzled Mom into making a scrapbook page in celebration of her and Dad’s 8th anniversary…which is in October! 


She used some cool paper with words like “time, weeks, minutes, etc.” and made a little clock…TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE WITH THOSE YOU Y!  Mom plans to give this to Dad in a frame that holds Scrapbook pages.  She plans to make pages at least once a month to display special occasions…When we are done with the page, it will go in our family scrapbook!  Great idea…much better than having the photos rot on some old CD, right?! J

I hope you have been nuzzled into making over some of your cluttered space.  Who know’s you may find some lost photos or make some room for more treats!

I hope you enjoyed our stop today!!!  If for some reason, you get lost chasing your own tail…Here is a list of all the bloggers:

Wendy: http://www.gilbyscraftster.blogspot.com/  (My cool, cuz, Gilby!)

Angie:  http://atuttletime.blogspot.com/  (That’s us!)















Don’t forget to become a follower and leave a comment all along the walk  for a chance to win one of the great treats! 

Also, one lucky person will also get a $10 gift card from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s…1.  Become a follower, 2.  Leave a comment with the name of your pets (if any) or favorite doggie name….I personally love my name, Gigi!  Have fun!  Woof Woof….Now, it's time to go cuddle with Mom...

Wow, your makeovers make me feel really guilty sitting here reading blogs instead of cleaning!!! I have two dogs a min. Schnauzer named Asia (short for Anastasia-couldn't talk my kids out of it no matter how hard I tried), and a black lab named Tank.

Patti Ross said...

Gigi looks just like my mom's dog "Holly". She died shortly after my mom passed - she missed her so much. We have 4 yorkies!!! Rascal, Trixie, Biscuit and Baby Bear....my granddaughter would love it if I named our next dog "Pumpernickle" But I can't see myself yelling THAT around the neighborhood. I love your makeover project!!! I just cleaned my studio - and found so many treasures!!!!
