Fostering 1-26-2012

Sorry I've been so slow with updating my blog... I have a good excuse... actually a few :-) We've been fostering some dogs... 1 adult dog and 3 puppies since the last week of December. The nice thing is that, aside from the fun we've had with all of them, we've found them all homes too. We are working with a small shelter in the next county that is filled to the rim with dogs and cats. Their county is very rural and they are the only shelter. It's called Madison County Pet Shelter and they are about an hour away from us. We first became aware of them when we saw their group having an adoption event at a local store.

Well, I've decided to close my Artfire shops.

My 3PeepsDesignsToo pattern shop will stay open until Jan 31st. So I am offering a Buy One Get One Free (pattern of your choice) until my shop closes!

After they close, I hope to have a new venue set up to sell my wares. If you have any suggestions, I sure would love to hear them.
