May layouts

These are some layouts I did with the May solo kit from Back Porch Memories. I will be sad to be stepping down from the design team after June. Unfortunately, it seems like my schedule just keeps getting busier & I can't give 100% to the team. I wil definitely miss it but will continue as a member at the site.

Online Crop Layouts

These layouts were done for the April online crop at Back Porch Memories. It was fun to complete some of the challenges.

Finally updating & new Dixieland Acres website

I'm finally updating my blog! I can't believe it has been so long since I've posted. I've been busy with all the animals - we're up to 18 goats right now. We also finished out the 4-H year with the Chesapeake Livestock show & sale -- it was a busy time but Danielle did awesome! It was hard on her having to auction off her 1st hog & goat - but she handled it well.

Her 1st year results:
*Grand Champion overall breeding doe
*1st place yearling breeding doe
*2nd place doeling breeding doe
*5th place market goat
*Reserve Champion / 2nd place novice goat showmanship
*3rd place market hog
*Grand Champion / 1st place novice hog showmanship

I also finished our farm website - you can check it out at - check it out if you have a minute.

Will be posting with some of the layouts I've the last couple months but haven't posted yet.

Dixieland Acres

We decided on a name for our little farm - Dixieland Acres - in memory of my grandmother, Dixie, who gave us the land. She was an amazing woman & is definitely missed.

Here is the current tally at "Dixieland Acres":

Goats - 4 boer goats

2 peacocks - Sapphire & Priscilla

26 Chickens & 1 rooster named Lucky

4 guinea hens (our feathered "watch dogs")

6 ducks (3 Pekin & 3 Muscovy)

2 dogs (George & Rex)

3 cats - Marshmallow, Gizzy & Patches (plus a stray that's trying to take up residence outside)

Well - that's it for Dixieland Acres for now. We'll be adding 2 more goats in about a week & 2 hogs next month (Danielle will be showing one of the hogs in the 4H sale & show in May).

I loved working with the January sketch by Lucy for My Sketch World. Here is my take on the sketch:
