Happy New Year & our newest family member!


I hope everyone had an enjoyable & safe New Years. Hubby and I just stayed home, had a few drinks, played a couple of games and enjoyed some time with friends. It was nice.

On to the news...On December 29th we got Jazmin (Jazzy D). She is almost 8 months old and is a Pug/Schnauzer cross. Isn't she cute?! I picked up the stuffed bunny for her and she loves playing with it.DH says her face reminds him of an Ewok
So far things have been good but, lots of work. We have another dog, Tucker, he is a 2 1/2 year old Pug/Beagle/Boston Terrier cross. After the passing of Chi-Chi, he became very clingy and looked sad. I knew he was missing his playmate so...we got Jazzy. The two of them get along good but, Jazzy is still a puppy and does those puppy things. =)

This is one of the best pictures I've been able to get of the two of them so far.

Today Jazzy is at the vets getting spayed and having a few teeth removed. She has an extra canine(the pointy and the vet said that it needs to be removed or it could cause problems in the future with the health of her teeth. Don't want that now do we! DH will pick her up from the vets on his way home from work. It's going to be fun...NOT...the next few days keeping the two dogs from playing and until Jazzy's tummy is healed. Wish me luck =)

I've been working on one of Julia Pretl's boxes. This is a request for a new customer. It will be used on a table in the home of a musician to hold guitar picks. All I have left to do is the lid and it will be ready for him. I like it done in the black and red, as he requested these colours. One of the other things I've been doing is these puffy stars. One of the many bead groups I belong to has a member who created the pattern and shared it with me. There are so many size and colour possiblities! I did one and then my daughter said, "Those would be neat as earrings...I'd wear them", I made a second one and she now has a new pair of earrings. I will definetly be doing more of these!

Well, time to go eat some lunch and put away the beads. I will be watching my best friends little ones for a bit this afternoon. David is 3 and Hannah is 1.

Till next time...bead happy =)
