Hey, you down in front!

He he....see that lil guy? Last night it was super-sunny (love the longer days, by the way..Oh, summer!) still so we went for a stroll to our lake...and we ran into a bunch of baby raccoons wading their little fuzzball selves around in the water. =) Omigosh, I can't even explain how cute they are!! The pictures do no justice! he he..Awww. So cute! More pics have been posted up here, in the Flickr.

I went for a run yesterday morning around the lake, too, and saw those giant Carp fish jumping around, so crazy! And as we were walking at night they were jumping around like crazy! Also, we saw 2 cranes in their nest, which was new for us...and ducklings are still around...and we were standing there watching the water when these giant dragonflies start flying around - and then I'm like, "No, dude! Those are bats!" Eeek...flying out of the trees in droves! Anyway, a lil creepy...but cool. We see something new everytime we go down there...=) Yay!

And I have to say Omigosh....The blog hop has been crazy fun, no? I can't believe how many people have stopped by!! You guys rock! Scroll down to the post below and keep entering, if you haven't! The Paislee giveaway is open until July 11, end of day. =) And good luck, guys!

Other stuff: The Dozens' List Challenge is up on the blog - for a chance to use your kit and win some hand-picked yummies, go check it out! Us DT girls got together and made list pages, hosted by the lovely Barb! Umm...what else? New kitschy card up in my Etsy shop today, I Etsy-blogged about it here (there's also a fun treasury posted). And thanks to Paper Girl Productions who featured the Monster Print on her blog today! =) Yay! Etsy is so fun - so badly wanting to just stay up all night and make new products to debut, but I'll be miserable at work the next day...lol. Otherwise, I'm totally at that point of wanting to create so bad! But nope. So slowly but surely, things like paper tags, stickers, earrings, etc. Super-slowly but surely they'll be done one day...lol. Anyway, Tofino pics still coming! And some embroidery...and some art. =) Happy day!

eeee...those little raccoons are so stinkin' cute!!! Such cute pictures, too!! We've had some new critters around our lake/pond, too....eagles!! Love being able to look out my front window and see an eagle and all the other little furry visitors that stop by...except coyotes. Not diggin' them so much these days. Your kitschy card is just fabulous!! Wow!! You had a ton of visitors on the hop...that's awesome!! :-) Thanks for sharing the pictures!! (Yikes...the bats gave me the shivers...icky! hehe...but I bet it was pretty neat to see!)

did you know that they are not common in Germany. But in the 50s or later someone brought a pair over and since then they are taking over the middle of Germany? LOL
