Feltie Bear

My new felt creation - love him!

He is a lot of work to make but so cute!

I also got my first order for "Felties" today!
Very exciting!
Thanks Stephanie! You are my honored first customer! :)

This pic was taken a few months ago when Romeo was maybe only 3 months old. Now he is five months & 73 lb!

He really is a nice puppy, quite calm overall, with a sweet, attentive nature. However, he has one problem - he is so afraid of other dogs! Tiny dogs, large, fuzzy, whatever....any dogs besides our own. He does a nervous bark when he sees them and because he is so large, he appears to be agressive to some people. Ugh! I can usually get him to stop barking & calm down in five mins or so, but it's those first mins we are struggling with. Anyhow, I am starting classes with a pro-dog trainer next week, so am very hopeful she can help guide us through this issue so Romeo can enjoy life & work with me in some capacity. I'm still hoping he may make it as a TDI dog...we'll see...

Science Time

Does ice melt faster if you put salt on it?

Do magnetic opposites attract or repel?

OK, so I am hoping we will adopt again. And, I figure, why hope & pray for something & not prepare? So, I have been creating felt ornaments/gift tags/toys lately that I hope to sell at this year's craft fair (or sooner if possible- you never know). Adoption is expensive & these little felties are a small thing I can do to maybe help pay for it all (just in case, you know! :)

So, here are a few...

This one is a tooth fairy pillow with a little pocket on the back.

For Valentines

I really like these little dinosaurs & am working on several other felt toys styles now.

I love birds.

What do you think?
They are all hand stitched with emboidery floss & felt & are made with love.

Country Kids

It was raining but the boys really wanted to go outside to play & I wondered how long they would last. I had to laugh & take a picture when I looked out to check on them & saw their creative solution. They were all settled into a chicken coop we aren't currently using, with their lawn chairs & snacks! Man, I sure do love those little guys!

New Year

I haven't posted recently because we had a rough start to the new year with John suffering severe sciatica pain & me dealing with yet another infection. After 2 Drs, 3 Chiropractor visits, x-rays & steroids, John is on the mend (& I am too) & we are feeling encouraged. Phew!

Here are a few random shots of the last weeks at our house...

Luke, with a completed gift from Nana & Papa.
 He looks so grown up to me in this pic!

Nathan's portrait of Mommy. I love it, of course!

Since John & I were very sick/in pain, the boys rose to the occasion & helped out a lot. John walked Mark through the process of waffle making & Mark was so proud to provide breakfast for everyone! Sweetness! I love it!
