Happy Thanksgiving to all

So I want to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving.  I do not know how you celebrate but I know how I do.  Myself I am not real big on the whole pilgrims side of things because well we pretty much destroyed an entire people and their way of life. 
I am however a fan of taking what you can get and having a day off to really soak up the love of family and treat ourselves this time of year when it gets cold and the days are shorter is how I see it.  This is my time to remind myself how very lucky we are to have a roof, money for food and medicines, a family of humans and pets that love us.  That is what my Thanksgiving is and I hope you are all going to enjoy the same thing.  Now off to finish my pecan pie.

Got to do something good

 So yesterday we the husband and myself drove this car full of stuff over to one of our local animal places.  It was a dozen pet beds I made with the great help of some friends who sent me flannels to make some of those beds.  Then the dog stuff that is all from my sweet girl who passed away a couple of weeks ago.  It is the things she had that she could not use anymore so we thought should be put to use helping other dogs that are still here.  Suffice it to say it was a bitter sweet trip doing good but missing my girl. 
Now just pulling up at the place you cannot help but smile it is nestled away in the woods and the minute you open the door you hear barking. 
This is the Granite City Animal Protection Agency.  They are no kill and while they are filled to the gills with dogs the place is well kept and clearly so are the animals.  I know this because I went in and said just to see when I might be ready I would like to meet some of their dogs while we were there. 
So when I asked they said sure come on in.  The young tiny woman who was working asked me what kind of dog I was looking for and started to lead me to the pups.  I said oh I am looking for an adult or maybe a senior who is good with cats and kids. 
Her eyes lit up and she introduced me to Peanut and Nikki.  Peanut is 12 and Nikki is 5 I think.  They were given up when their senior parent found it to hard to take care of them.  Peanut walked right up to me like we were best buds.  He clearly thought hey lets go home I am not supposed to be here.  So I spent some time with him and Nikki who was just adorable as well . 
Now I left them there because I don't want to make a rash decision and get a dog that might not be a good fit for us just because it reminds me of my old dog that passed and the shelter is a no kill but I will tell you this I am damn well thinking about it.

Bowl of phlegm in a tutu

So This has been a good few days.  Things are going good working and sticking to goals.  Then yesterday I got featured on a baby blog in France.  It was great.  They thought I was a little nutty but then comments translated were just a riot.  One lady compared my work to a bowl of phlegm in a tutu.  That shit is getting turned into a painting because it made me laugh.  So thank you random French lady for your inspiration.  Here is a link if you would like to read.
Talk to you soon

Wizards wizzing and little mobile homes planning a weekend off.

 So with a long shitty week behind us I am intending on spending a good deal of time with this guy.  There is going to be a metric shit ton of petting.  This is part of my plan.
 Step two is a more serious version of this where we plan out what we want to do with decorations this year as we think we might make it a touch brighter out there this year.  I am going to go to a couple of art things and sew my ass off.  Well that would take a lot of sewing but yep lots of plans for fun things. 
 Been adding things to the shop some not holiday related like this wizard taking a piss.
And this little bitty mobile home charm.
What do you have planned for the weekend.

Suck week but doing better

 First the suck my old beautiful sweetheart dog passed away this week.  She was 16 and loved and adored.  Her life was filled with warm snuggles, treats and play.  But this last week she very quickly went down hill so we had to put her to sleep to keep her from a very cruel prolonged death.  Of course my heart is broken and I will never forget my Old Chubby Dog but I am trying to get back into work because laying on the couch sobbing and holding her blanket is not really helpful to the healing process after three days.  So good bye to my sweet girl.

Now this is a much more cheerful and comical thing.  I have made three of these total two were custom works this is my last most likely for the season genital Nativity.  I laugh when I see it and I do happen to believe in God but my God has a sense of humor so I think it might make God laugh to.   If you would like to see this in the shop it is here.
I will write more soon just still trying to get my spirits up.
