We adopted Jessie and brought her home from the B.C. Interior on July 25, 2019.  She has the most amazing personality and keeps us entertained. :)

Jessie is a Cavalier King Charles Spanel mixed with Beagle (3/4 cav; 1/4 beagle).  She definitely looks like a Cavalier but her howling is definitely Beagle. :)

I've added all the photos of Jessie that I have posted throughout my blog since bringing her home,
plus a few more.  I hope you enjoy.  It's very uplifting to see that adorable face!

The photos are in reverse chronological order with the newest photos at the top.
Most photos are taken by my very talented son-in-law, Alex!

More will be added as time permits ...

I remember all of the pictures. It's so good to see Jessie's growth and her adorable (and sometimes funny) facial expressions all in one page!

I'm not very observant am I, that I have never noticed this tab until tonight? What a fabulous idea, Lolly! It's a wonderful permanent photo album with excellent professional photos of sweet Jessie!! Love, Dolly

Mac Mable said...

Ohhhh I so enjoyed scrolling through these cute, adorable and fabulous photos. What a great idea to put them all in one place Loll x. Love Mac xx

Brenda in IN said...

I just saw this tab today and I love all the sweet pictures of Jessie and all her friends. She is a sweetie.

Judi Gray said...

I so look forward to your postings and the wonderful info you share with them. So much work on your part, keeping track of items you use to create your fabulous cards and then posting same for our viewing pleasure. Thank you.

Jessie is about the cutest thing, Ever. Her facial and eye expressions are over the top. Sometimes she appears to be saying or thinking: I'm ready for my closeup now and other times it seems to be 'Oh! Bother, not again.!

Do you have a designated craft room? How Do you keep track of your goodies? What are the storage secrets for your stash? How many hours a week do you stamp/craft?

Have a wonderful holiday season, stay safe, well, and warm. PS: scratch Jessies ears, please.

Loll said...

Judi, thanks for your comment. I don't have your email, so I'm hoping you check back to see my response.

I have a designated craft room, although I've outgrown the space and really need to have a bigger room. :) Hubby won't let me knock out a wall, darn it!

Most of keeping track of my supplies is in my head, although I do tend to forget once in a while and end up with duplicates. :) I keep my stamps, dies, and stencils listed in Evernote so I can add a link to where they can be purchased, but the files are so large now, it takes forever to save the file when I signout. I need to find a better way.

Most of my supplies are in bookcases. I have lots of small storage boxes. I stamp just about every day for a few hours, sometimes many hours. It's my main hobby.

Jessie doesn't mind having her photo taken. She is very patient about it. Wait until you see her Christmas photo (going live on my blog on Dec. 20th). Alex does amazing work!

Loll xx

What's wrong with me that I just now noticed this tab. What a nice visit I had, looking back through the years with Jessie. Thank you!

I just noticed Jessie as I was studying your gorgeous card. Every picture of her is gorgeous. Alex is an excellent photographer. All the dogs are so beautiful. I had to send my 12 year old Sheltie to the rainbow bridge just before Covid. He had mouth cancer. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him. Thank you for sharing your fur babies!!! And teaching us how to make your card!
