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.

And the unconditional love and affection from 5 dogs and 5 cats - simply amazing! Oh and being in the kitchen with my mom, sister, and Danni again - well, it was priceless.
And now with Christmas only 10 days away... well, busy, busy! I haven't made many handmade items as gifts th…
Please excuse my mess, I thought I should update the look and layout of my blog.
So, today I share these two cuties with you! I love them, they are so cute, and just like the other dog charms, they evolved from one of the others. It's really fascinating to see what comes about while bead pattern brainstorming. Anyway, I have so many patterns in the cue that I might do one a day next week because for a special change, I don't have much going on outside of the house - I've been away a lot with my son's bowling practices, league, and matches.
