Lulu is Just Awesome!

This little cutie is taking over our lives here. We are still not sure if Lulu is a girl or a boy, he/she is still pretty tiny and hard to catch, so we can't get a really good look at his/her "parts." All I know is that he/she is super cute and super entertaining to watch while he/she jumps and bounces around the vivarium. I finally got this picture of Lulu while he/she was spying on us yesterday. How could anyone not love those incredible eyes!

We've Been Stuck Inside for a Long, Long, Time

We all had colds last week which kept us inside for almost the entire week. Lots of coughing and sneezing and feverish-ness. On Friday, our shower decided it was time to leak, but not just leak, more like run like a itty bitty waterfall. We couldn't get it to stop. So, we had a few days of waiting on a plumber to fix up our leaky/runny shower, no outside time for us there either. It turned out that there was a great big piece o' fungus growing all up in the nether regions of the shower faucet. YUCK! At least the shower works now, I would hate to see what else is growing in our walls now. As for the stuck inside part, I'm not really complaining because I got a lot of work done. I cut out LOTS of leathery coin pouches and wallets and started gluing in some of the appliques. Hopefully, some will find their way to the sewing machine soon so I can get them sewn up and ready to list! I am crossing my fingers that I can keep it going:)

The Big Pile O' Stuff!

This is what I worked on this weekend. lots of billfolds and coin pouches were cut out, now it's time to get creative and do some appliques. The colors don't look that fantastic as they are all layered together in one big blob, but there is everything from light grey to school bus yellow, to metallic white! I am also cutting out some more emerald green, violet, purple, red, and blue coin pouches and such to add to the pile. I just had to take a break to rest my hand for a bit. Feels good to work!!!!!

Lulu the Crested Gecko
 Since we lost Jonesie and the field mice, we decided that it was just too lonely here and we really needed to find a friend for the very lonely vivarium and put a little cheer into our lives.

So, last Monday we headed out to our local pet supply shop to look at their selection of little critters that would work out for our vivarium and we came home with Lulu!  Ciaran named him/her on the way home from the shop.  He/she is a baby crested gecko and only measures about four inches long right now.  He/she makes a very lovely addition to our house of toddlers, tortoises, and tabby cats!  Lulu seems to really like his/her new home, he/she has been exploring every corner of it with his/her little sticky toes!   

( I am using his/her  a lot because it is too early to tell if Lulu is a girl or boy, so in a few months we should know and his/her name will be Lulu or Lou.) 

Other than that, I am excited about the Fall and Winter and all the fun that comes along with it.  I will be doing the Ink People Center for the Arts Holiday Gift Fair this year.  After a year off!  I made myself  a "get busy or die!" list.  I sure hope I follow it!  Too much procrastination and self doubt these last few months, it's time to get over myself and back to work!

Happy Friday!

I wish you all a fabulous weekend of fun!  I am hoping to get some work done this weekend as well as get out in the sunshine for a bit and play.  I am working on a great little wristlet right now and just can't wait until it's done so I can show you all.  Hopefully, I will get it all done and some other things too!  Off I go to play in a big pile of leather:)
