Oh my goodness! Time sure does fly by too fast. Sorry for not posting more often, life has been incredibly busy. We are down to only one foster dog and we actually adopted one of our others. I think I've mentioned Z-Bo before, but in case I haven't, here he is.
We actually found in the Frayser area of Memphis and gained his trust and brought him home to be nurtured, trained a bit, and vetted. We helped raise a good amount of money for his vetting because he turned out to be positive for Heartworms. The rescue group we work with, SOAR Doggy Rescue, took him under their wing so we gave them the funds and used their vet. Anyway, that was back in May 2015. Heartworms treatment took 3 months and now we are waiting for his forever family to find him. It doesn't seem like people are looking for a big dog and thus it has been a slow process. Sometimes I wish we would stick with the easy to place dogs, but then I look into his face and start laughing because he is such an adorable…

And now with Christmas only 10 days away... well, busy, busy! I haven't made many handmade items as gifts th…
As I posted two days ago, I am going to start posting on my blog again... on a regular basis. *Gasp* I know, I know, but my schedule is opening up... there have been big changes since we relocated and so I can get back to this.
I plan on doing a Freebie Pattern Friday post twice a month... if my brain is over-productive, I may add more. What is the point of designing if I never seen them beaded up? Now, these free patterns will most likely be flat peyote, brick or loom because that is what I do. Keep in mind, I still sell other patterns in my Zibbet shop, but if I decide to offer one of those patterns in my freebie patterns, I will remove the listing in my shop. And, I also still occasionally sell completed items in my shop, so take a peak once in a while.
Anyway, here is the pattern that I am offering for my First Freebie Pattern Friday:
I chose this pattern as the first one because it's getting close to Halloween and The Day of the Dead, it's a popular pattern of mine, AND b…
