Central Ohio Greyhound Rescue Picnic and Silent Auction

Well, my pink greyhound cuff finally arrived in Ohio (I have yet to figure out why it takes longer to get some places than others from Arkansas - I guess we aren't very close to a major hub like I am used to) Anyway, the silent auction and picnic is the 25th of September and if you are in the area, I am sure they would appreciate you showing up!

Almost Wordless Wednesday 9-22-2010



I guess my kids are playing a different version of cops and robbers? Bounty Hunters, perhaps? I found this on my son's camera yesterday.

Carpe Canem and My Greyhound Cuff


Well, today is the big day, the auction benefiting Carpe Canem started at 9am. This was the first chance I would have to view my cuff that I donated to them and see what other great items they have listed. There are a ton of items that have been donated, from cups to t-shirts, collars to note cards and they all have different starting bids.

My cuff, which I sell for $75 starts at a mere $6 bid. This is your chance to get one of my cuffs at a great price! And you will be helping a great organization; the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. This is a great time of year for auctions too, because you can start your Christmas shopping early. I have a few tough-to-shop-for family members whom love helping non-profits like this.... hmm... I saw a cute pair of rain boots that would be perfect for someone special.

I hope they raise a good amount of money so that they can continue their rescue and rehabilitation of greyhounds. And this could be your chance to get a great deal on a handmade Peyote stitched greyhound cuff.

I hope to have the link for the next greyhound rescue auction by the end of the week., benefiting a rescue group in Ohio... I will keep you posted.

What day is it?

Well, the holiday weekend messed up my inner calendar so I'm wondering what day it is. I have two projects to show today. First up is my Orange and Grey Mini Greyhound soon-to-be-stitched onto leather. I was going to send it to the Central Ohio Greyhound Rescue, but I couldn't find a leather in a light or medium grey to stitch it to.... so I am holding onto it until I either find the grey or get the white leather I ordered.

Anyway, I will be sending in the pink and brown greyhound on pink leather instead and I hope it gets a really good bid in their silent auction. This is due by the 18th. I have 2 pit bull cuffs due in October for a Pit Bull auction so I will soon be working on those. Hopefully within the next day or so I will also post the pattern for this Mini Greyhound cuff in my Artfire shop.

The next project is my Good Kitty amulet bag. I finished it up a few months ago and have finally taken some pictures of it. I am going to be listing the pattern in my Artfire shop tonight. I may list the amulet bag in my shop as well, after I redo the strap, as I am not satisfied with it. The amulet pattern will only have the chart for the actual front and back of the amulet bag, it will not include directions for putting the sides together or adding strap and fringe.

And as usual, whenever I open my blog to post anything, suddenly I am needed by the kids and the husband is home early, yada, yada, yada.... jeesh!

Wild Wicked Beads: BEADWORKERS: SEVEN DEADLY SINS - SIN #3

Wild Wicked Beads: BEADWORKERS: SEVEN DEADLY SINS - SIN #3

This describes me to a T. Only it just doesn't include beads and findings, it includes a wide variety of tools, stained glass, glue, fabric, thread, craft supplies and office supplies including pens (I love them) paper, markers, pencils, laminating stuff, etc. And to be perfectly honest, including kitchen gadgets, tools, appliances, dishes... yeah. Supplies, I love them.
