What a WEIRD Way to End The Week.

We were so excited to receive Jonesie and did all we could to keep her comfy and help her adapt to her new home for the last week. Unfortunately, she passed away early Saturday Morning, breaking my heart and the kiddos hearts' as well. RIP Jonesie. ( Sorry for the fuzzy picture, it was her first day with us and I didn't want to stress her out by getting the camera too close to her.)

Then, Mark came home from his ride on Saturday with a pocket full of little babies he had saved from an uncertain future in the road. We started with four, two died within the first hours of being home with us, these are the two little babies that lived and are eating and thriving so far. We have no idea if they will make it or not but we are giving it our all.

So, that's been my week in a nutshell. As much as I wanted to get back to sewing, I am now spending my days caring for some these absolutely tiny critters and that is cool with me. I only wish my efforts with Jonesie were as successful :(

Onward to next week which I hope to be filled with leathery fun and thriving small furry critters. Cross your fingers for us:)

I'm Back!

........and it was FUN! I love going to Oregon and so do the kiddos and Mark. We had a wonderful, adventurous time traveling all about Oregon, and now after I catch up on some much needed sleep, I have the urge to create! We'll see what happens after some resting and birthday celebrating this weekend:)

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

New Made to Order Item

I think I posted these pics before but I finally decided that I wanted to offer this design in my Etsy and Artfire shops as a made to order item. It's a journal cover that can be made in most colors and textures(depending on what I have available) and sizes. This one fits a 4 inch by 6 inch journal/sketchbook. It's fully lined and padded and has a roomy zipper pocket for pencils/pens/ erasers/etc.

Other than that, I am getting ready for our adventure and doing a bit of sewing and cleaning in between. I am having visions of cool scenery, train rides, donuts, zoo animals, reptiles, pastries, and the sea! I am having a hard time concentrating because I am looking forward to the journey so much. So enjoy your week everyone, I will be back soon with pics and many stories of my adventures out there somewhere:)

This Week's News

There isn't much news this week. Just working on my leathery things and hoping to get a few things done and listed in my shops. I did decided to celebrate August the month of my birthday and the month of my fourth Etsyversary by offering free shipping in my Etsy shop:)

Other than that, I will be heading out to play for a few days next week so I won't be around much. I will leave my shops open though, and all items that are sold between August 11th and August 15th(my vacation time) will ship out by Wednesday August 17th when I am back in town. We are heading north to Oregon to have some fun! I hope to have a lot of stories and pictures when we return.

So off I head to my work table full of leathery wonders, to sew up a storm on this cloudy, rainy morning. Have a lovely day all!
