Happy Hour Linky Party 6

Hello friends, I hope you are doing well. 

It's been quite a week here in the Craftberry Bush household.  But I always try (really hard) to look at things in a positive light.  This week I spoke from the heart on getting older and shared with you some of my family fall photos.  In between the photoshoot, I made some yummy lunch for my eldest son and guess what? I got him to eat asparagus by wrapping it in prosciutto!!  Later on in the week, I decided to put a little fall into my hutch.  It doesn't look that much different, but I like it.  And lastly, I opened my sketchbook as I once again turned to my art as a means of escaping some sadness.

To be honest, I wasn't in the mood to do much talking tonight as tomorrow we will say goodbye to our kitty cat Benz.  He is 16 years old and is suffering from kidney failure.  The vet has advised he is suffering and suggested we do the humane thing and say goodbye.  I am always amazed how dear our pets become and this feeling of seeing him unable to eat and gasping for air is way too familiar.  Tonight I am sad.  I hesitated sharing with you because this is after all HAPPY hour, but this is my reality for now...

Aren't these ombre kitchen canvas just so beautiful? Taryn shows you how to do it in a step by step tutorial.  She then made these Ca-UTE chocolate spiderweb cupcakes and then decided to go colorful with this adorable halloween basket for her even more adorable daughter.  And lastly, she is getting organized and created a project gallery so you can find all of her awesome projects.  But most importantly, she shows you how to do it yourself in your own blog if you use Word Press.  Isn't she sweet?

Even though Jaime is making us jealous enjoying a cruise with her sister, she was able to  share her gorgeous chippy crackly just perfectly imperfect buffet.  See that beautiful chevron canvas?  She tells us how to make our own...yay!  She then shared another sweet fall vignette and lastly she shows us her team spirit with a tailgate monogram cool!  How organized is this girl?  She even has fb posts scheduled!  I need a lesson in organization from Miss Jaime.  Hey Jaime, hope you are having a good time...we miss ya! 

Now tell us what you've been up to!

 Here are some suggestions...

  2. So sorry to hear about your cat, Lucy! Our animals do become a part of the family. I'll be thinking of you.

  3. I am so, so sorry. I will keep you in my prayers and light a candle for your sweet Benz. Godspeed sweet one.

  4. So sorry to hear about your sweet cat. We had to put down my cat this past summer and it was really hard as she was a part of our family. Thanks for hosting despite the circumstances.

  5. Very sorry to hear about your sweet kitty. We lost one last year. :( Pets are so endearing, aren't they? Wishing you some peace. Thanks for hosting.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. We had to do the same to ours right after our youngest was born and it is so tough. Animals become such a part of the family. (((Hugs)))


  7. So sorry about your kitty..we lost our 16 year old kitty earlier this year..she was our first baby before our kids came along.....

  8. My heart is breaking for you since I have lost a sweet fur baby to kidney failure, too. I am sending you and your family prayers and hugs....Debbie

  9. Lucy, so sorry to hear about your fur baby. I still miss the cocker spaniels that I grew up with... but it was so hard to see them suffer too. I do feel like they are still here in spirit-- My 6 year old has a big connection to them even though he never met them. Anyhow, big <>! ~Melanie

  10. So sorry Lucy! That is always such a hard thing to do, no matter how much we know it's the right decision. Take care!

    I do have a question, though. I love the way you did a collage with the CraftyScrappyHappy photos. Is there a way I could get the dimensions? I've been struggling with figuring out how to do this for my blog. :)

  17. Oh Lucy, I am so sorry to hear about your dear cat. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  18. Hi Lucy, thank you for hosting again, always sweet to link up with the three blogs. So sorry about today, I also have a sweet Boxer/Husky mix Cappi that at 13 is just now feeling her age, still pretty active but has some issues brewing. I keep trying to talk to my young adult kids about her, just so when the time comes they at least knew it was "brewing". Blah!

    Hugs, Nancy
