Plus… Elena of Scrapbook Royalty is coordinating the SuperCrop the evening of Saturday, July 31. IF you are in the Chicago area and are a “cropper” (you know who you are…!), please sign up for the event. Contact me for more information or visit:

How Frenchies Work

Posted in Brody - French Bulldog on May 31, 2010 by wadevicki

How does a French Bulldog nap?

1. Choose the most comfy rug or mat nearest to your favorite family member.

2. Let tongue protrude and eyes roll back.

3. Stretch one  leg (or both) out so tummy is comfy.

Sleep. Note: keep ears alert to any noises (like small child creeping up or fave family member leaving room, then respond appropriately).

It seems that Brody’s favorite napping post is the kitchen rug…

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Chooka Boots

Posted in Vic's Wish List on May 25, 2010 by wadevicki

Are you a Chooka devotee? If you aren’t familiar with Chooka boots, you haven’t lived, ladies! These aren’t just rain boots, the Chooka line is a faaashion statement. 😉 www.chookaboot.com

Roll up your skinny jeans and wear your Chookas. Or pull on a pair of black leggings, don a skirt and wear your Chookas. Or simply tuck your denims into a pair of these feisty foot fetishes. 

This is the pair I’d like to grab up.  Do you think the horizontal stripes will make me look short… um, I mean shorter?

Have a rainy day!

Chipboard House from Hobby Lobby

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2010 by wadevicki

LOVE the surprises I often find when browsing Hobby Lobby. They now offer online shopping – the 40% coupons are even accepted on their web site. This is a chipboard house that I picked up several weeks ago.  The house is about 7 inches tall. The “chandelier” is a Cricut diecut shape and the glow is from a small strand of Christmas lights inside the house.  I have another one waiting to be altered. What colors would you choose?

A New Blog and A New… Brody?

Posted in Brody - French Bulldog on May 20, 2010 by wadevicki

Welcome to the new Killer Queen Blog!  Before I begin posting Killer Queen news and products, I would like to feature another French favorite – our new puppy, Brody.

Brody is a 4-month-old red/fawn French Bulldog (recommended by our small animal vet). We considered three breeds and after discussions and visits with area owners and pet industry professionals agreed that a Frenchie would be a great addition to the family – and the new home.

He looks a bit like Stitch from the Disney movie, don’t you agree?

No seriously. Wait until you see his short legs, his splayed paws and his ears up close and personal. He is a spitting image of Stitch – sans the blue coat. You’ll see below that Brody loves fringe (not the television show that is a favorite in our home), but the rug-kind. And, he’s a shoe chewer too. Note: put all tennies in the back stairway (he doesn’t walk up or down steps yet).

Look at that ear! It kinda makes up for the lack of nose, don’t you agree? We’re pondering Brody’s long, formal AKC name at this time. Any suggestions?

Welcome, Brody!
