Puppy Power

Exciting times at Casa de Crafty Dad these days. For the past several weeks, there’s been lots (and I mean LOTS) of conversations where the subject is dogs, puppies, and all things Canine-related. We certainly miss our Hershey Girl and she will never be replaced. She holds a very special place in our hearts.

Rather than get another Lab, we’ve been looking for Weimaraner puppies and found a reputable breeder in Wisconsin. Crafty Mom has been corresponding with the “Puppy Lady” and has made arrangements to go pick one out. Woo Hoo! So…it’s road trip time for Crafty Mom and the boys.

Here’s a Weimaraner puppy video I found on You Tube:

Which pup will the boys (and Mama) pick out?

Will it be Blizzard, Spot, Frosty or Burleigh?

Here are some photos the breeder sent us. They are all good looking pups aren’t they?

Chow Time for all the puppies!

Vote for your favorite puppy by leaving a comment.

I will let you know what puppy we pick.

Take care,

New Banner and New Watkins Store

So….what do you think of the new summertime banner?

I snapped this photo at one of our resting spots in NC. This beautiful creature stopped just long enough for me to capture it (digitally). After just a tiny bit of “photo-doctoring-up” (using Picnik), I’m happy with it.

You may have noticed the Summit Group ‘link’ on my sidebar (over there….in the right-hand column). Yes, I am an official Independent Watkins Consultant. Watkins has been around since 1868 and has some fantastic products. My great-grandfather was a “Watkins Man” back in the day. I have a black and white photograph of him standing by his car/truck with the Watkins logo on the door panel. It’s a classic.

100% Organic Spices

Please visit my online store and take a look at all the good stuff Watkins offers. They are probably most famous for their cinnamon and vanilla. But they have LOTS of other products too. If you’re looking for some environmentally-friendly cleaning products, Watkins has them. We’ve been using the All-Purpose Cleaner, the Window Cleaner, the Tub and Tile Cleaner and the Toilet Bowl Cleaner for the past few weeks. They are fantastic! Seriously…no nasty smells. And they WORK! I really like the Aloe and Green Tea formula. It has a nice, fresh smell to it.

I would sure appreciate your support. Please let me know if you’d like a free catalog. I’d be happy to put one in the mail to you!


Trip to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC

Hi Bloggers! Here’s a quick collage I put together of our nature walk during our recent trip to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. I highly recommend the audio (headset) tour. Otherwise, you’ll see a WHOLE bunch of stuff…but you won’t know what you’re looking at!

More photos later.  Photos were not allowed inside the house.  But…I got several of the outside.  You’ll see them soon.  Photos above are from the beautiful gardens and walking paths.  It was perfect weather for a long, long (longer-than-we-thought) walk.

Hope you’re having a great weekend.

P.S. It’s Father’s Day….so make it a good one!

Summertime…and the livin’ is easy …

especially if you’re a dragonfly.

Hope you’re having a good weekend.

I’ll tell you more about this photo later.
