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 =)

Your older pup looks like he is a little camera shy, LOL. The other one just looks like trouble LOL. Love the box-- something about black and red just flips my lid too! Nice shape for guitar picks too, was that a coincidence or is that the reason for the request?

The older one doesn't like the flash and yes the younger one is trouble. She gets into all kinds of stuff and like to run, jump and play with the older dog even if he doesn't want to at the time.
Thanks for your compliments on the box. Yes, the reason for the request was specifically for guitar picks. I really like the red & black too!

Love the pup and the box. Glad that you gave Jasmin a home with such a loving family. Although she won't take the place of your other dog, you will find that your heart has room for one more.

Tucker is TOTALLY giving Jazzy the side-eye in that picture, lol!

Those stars are awesome! Which group is this, and where can I find that pattern? Mimi would LOVE these on her mini Christmas three (which would probably be right about the time I'd manage to make one, at the rate MY life's going!)

Hi Jewels!

I love doing the stars! They are so addicting! I got the pattern from a lady by the name of Lidia you can see more of her work on her flickr site here
I'm sure if you sent her a message she would be able to help you with the pattern for the stars!
