Who knew what fun it would be to make our “kindle sleeves” .  Those little cases are quite fun and quick to whip up.  After making purses for so long I am really enjoying the quick project.  Here are a few of the latest.  You can find them all at www.PuppyDogsNPolkaDots.Etsy.com

We finally had a few days to sneak away to the beach, and it was perfect.   The weather was just right, the water was nice and cool, the sand was…well sandy and the little house we rent was available.  Thought I would post a couple of pictures to make you envious! 🙂  If you have never visited the west coast of Florida, you really should.  The only flaw in the weekend was the grouchy man that yelled at us for dipping our dogs toes in the water.   Really we weren’t going to stay on the beach with them, just run them to the water and run them back.  Grrr on no dogs allowed.

My hubby and friend.

Wonderful west coast sunset

The sunsets are reason enough to visit the beach.

Thats my youngins.... part of them anyway, can you guess which two look alike?

Yes, that would be my son and my daughter's boyfriend in those pink tubes.

Another night, another sunset. Never gets old

Once again, the daughter has outdone the mother.  Dont you hate  love it when that happens.   I may have mentioned, but I taught my daughter everything she knows.  Not only that, but I also included an extremely smart brain when I gave her life!   Is it not enought that she is younger, has better skin, hair, teeth and a tad, just a tad skinnier than me? 

When Corri started her etsy business I worked with her on photos, critiquing and inspiring and blowing her ego all over the place. (as if I was any sort of expert! )   Eventually, she wowed me with her pics.  On to the Kindle Covers.  We have been working together on operation kindle – nook – ereader – cell phone – ipod – iphone covers.  A very serious undertaking.  I thought the pics would be a snap.  But not so.  It has come down to this… Corri telling me to just mail her the covers for photos.  Hmmph!  🙂    Really?  Yes, Really!  Look at some of her latest photos.  I love the coffee cup.. just makes you want to take a break and sit down with a cup of coffee and read.

Run over to her shop and see the other covers, sleeves, cases .. whatever you want to call them… for the ereaders.  We customize them to fit nooks, kindles, and even ipads.     Puppy Dogs N Polka Dots  You will probably be able to see which pictures were mine, or at least the ones she has not redone!
