Goldie’s New Pad- Chicken Update

DSC_0003-1

I’m Goldie and that’s right, I’ve been moved to my very own crib.  Darn other girls kept climbing into the nesting box I was in with my special eggs and laying more eggs for me to sit on.  So, my chicken Mommy, because she loves me, moved me and my special eggs to my very own room where the other girls can’t get to me.

DSC_0002-1

Check it out.   It’s a dog crate, but I have renamed it the “hatch pad.”  My babies should be safe in here with me for a while.  Monday is the big day and I’m hopeful at least 3 of my 6 eggs hatch. It would be super eggciting, cluck, cluck, if all of them hatched though.

I’ve  have been very diligent sitting on these special eggs.  I only get off the nest for a few moments a day to relieve myself and eat and drink.  I’ve pulled my chest feathers out so the eggs would be right up against my skin and have kept them all at the perfect temperature for 17 days  now.  Only 2, maybe 3 more days to go!

Beat it Fern, can’t you see I’M BUSY HERE!

I hope you are cozy in your own special place as well.

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!

Flight of the Dragonflies – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0016

 

Hello There,

I have to omit that I am struggling,  struggling, struggling.  My entire life I have been a PC user and now I am trying to switch everything from my PC to my new Mac computer.  It is so different.  I actually just spent the last hour searching for my tutorial photos I had just uploaded so I could edit them.  I have to laugh at myself or I will cry.  I will get the hang of this computer if it kills me!

But in the mean time, please forgive me if my post are a bit short while I learn the ins and outs of this wonderful new system.  Thanks also for letting me bend your ear, lol.

The good part of my day was in the making of today’s project.  I think it would be very hard to make a bad card with the new stamp set Awesomely Artistic by Stampin’ Up!  Such great elements to work with.

You can find the complete supply list below for today’s project and also how to the get the complete tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

*************************************************

May your day be filled with joy!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!

Chicken Update – We Are Expecting!

DSC_0002_edited-22

 

So, our girl Goldie, once again, went broody and decided she was going to try to hatch some infertile eggs.  Well, I took pity on her and ordered some fertile eggs from Mypetchicken.com so her efforts were not in vane.   I switched out the infertile eggs for the fertile eggs 8 days ago.   Just look at her, so serious about her job.  12 more days and we will have some chicks hopefully.

DSC_0003_edited-2

 

She is sitting on 6 eggs.  I’m told there is usually a 50% hatch rate.  I’m going to candle the eggs tonight.  Candle means putting a flashlight up to them to see if there is a chick growing in the egg or not.   The ones that are not growing will be disposed of so they don’t spoil and break in the nest.  This will be my first attempt at candling so my fingers are crossed.

Last year Goldie hatched two eggs out of 6 and I now have Jo Jo and Winnie as a result.  Two very fine hens.  But after they hatched I took the chicks and put them in a brooder and raised them outside of the flock.

This batch will be raised by Goldie within the flock.  I’m very nervous about this. I’m hoping she will be a good mother and protector.  I keep reminding myself that chickens have hatched and raised their young for hundreds of years, so hopefully things will go well.

*************************************************

Have a fabulous evening!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!

Baby Gift Wrap

DSC_0001

Hello there,

As I’ve shared in past posts, I like to use craft paper to wrap gifts with and decorate them myself.  I needed a baby shower gift last Sunday so I decorated this gift with the elephant stamp from the Zoo Babies stamp set.  I stamped them in Marina Mist on the wrapping paper and then again on Whisper White card stock.  I cut the ears out of the Whisper White ones and added them to the gift wrap by popping them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also added tiny pearls for the elephant’s eyes.

DSC_0002

Added some ribbon, matching tag and a couple of punched stars.  The mother to be was very impressed.  Sorry, I wanted to get a picture of her opening the gift to share with you but I found myself answering questions about the gift wrap at that moment instead, lol.

This would be cute in pink or green also.  This gift was for twin boys so I was able to go blue all the way.

Do you decorate your gifts with stamped images?  It only takes a few extra moments and makes the gift extra special.  :)

Congratulations Nikki and Brian.  I can’t wait to meet the babies in August!

*************************************************

Have a wonderful day!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .
