For the love of animals

What makes you smile every day, no matter what your mood?

Myself, I have so much right now that makes me happy I could fill the page and more.
Regardless of last week, this week or next week, these four legged kiddos (oh, and the two legged) make me smile and forget all my worries.

Let me introduce my family to you:

Lucy is the puppy of the crew. CEO and I adopted her from a local vet that takes in strays. She is so full of energy and love. She wakes up CEO every morning by pushing and nudging him in bed (they are not allowed on the funiture or I think it would be a full dog pile!) 

Lei-a (in white) and Ani-kin (in brown)
Ani-kin was my first puppy and has been through a lot with me. I adopted him from the local Humane Soceity.  He gets into his fair share of trouble, but overall is the best dog I have ever had.  Such a lover, wanting to be a lap dog.

Lei-a was not planned. What do they call them "oopses?" I was donating food and blankets to the local Humane Society one day and she went running by the door.  It was love at first sight and I just had to have her.  She is spoiled rotten and our little diva.

This is Maggie.  I adopted her from the local Humane Society (see a theme here?) to keep Ani-kin company and out of trouble when I took a job out of town.  She is a complete momma's girl!
Maggie recently went missing and after a couple week's of much heartache from me, she thankfully was found.  She is a bit traumatized and then came home to this little man....explains the look of "Really, mom? Really??"

We adopted Norris from an organization our sister helps with.  It was meant to be. It took some time to get him healed up from being neutered (the best words from Bob Barker "Please have your pets spayed or neutered) and declawed, but he is so much fun and so sweet.  He was chasing Maggie around this morning (refer to the picture above for her response).

Its a crazy family, but its mine.
What made you smile today?

Farm Fresh Friday

How fun would it be to go shopping every week at a Farmer's Market full of gorgeous like this?!!

While we were in San Fransisco a few weeks back( more to come on that), we were walking up to get our coffee and fresh baked breakfast and we ran across this Farmer's Market just being set up.  I was in complete awe!! A whole street filled with fresh veggies, fruit and fish.  I was in so much awe that I didn't get a picture of the fish.......have to go back, don't you think??

Do you have a local Farmer's Market?

Little things for little hands

I had so much fun (most of the time) making this Wee Mouse Tin.  I have to admit that I rushed to do it in hopes that I would, for once, beat my mom to a project!  :) 

I learned with each step and not sure that I will get used to working with tiny things, as my crazy but very dear friend Rachael loves to do, but will for sure be making more of these for all of the little tykes in my life.

I sent this first one to the daughter of a good friend of mine that I dont get to see near enough.  Little Miss Zohy has so much going on this year she needs a secretary at age 5! She will be starting school, becoming a big sister and daily caretaker for her grandma soon!  Whew......  If she is even partially like her mother, she can handle all of that plus move the mountains!!

To dear friends!

Absent But Not Lost....

It has been a while but my trees are all planted and fabric layed so I am back.  Oh, we went on a wonderful vacation also (more on that later.)

Here is one of my latest projects.  Please let me introduce you to Dilby Duck.

He was my first toy project and with minky ta-boot!  I learned some things in the process and cant wait to do some more of these cute little guys.  Cant say these will make it into our etsy shop but hopefully some cute little tikes will sure enjoy him.

What is your latest project?

Glad to be back,
