I'm Jumping for Joy

It's always exciting to receive The Angel Company newletter each month - especially when I'm chomping at the bit hoping I was one of the contest winners. And today I found out I was - WooHoo!!!! It was really hard to let this project go but it's like the Lotto - you can't win if you don't play. I don't gamble but I do love to enter the contests - it helps me stretch my creative muscle and actually get something created. I've included the link to all the Contest Winners for this month so you can check out all the other winning entries by other creative and talented angels. If you click on each photo you will be able to see all the winners projects.


Thanks for looking and for sharing in my joy.

Copic Container

I've had so much going on lately that it's been hard to get into the creative flow.  I needed something quick and easy to put together to see if it would help my creativity to flow again.  I have been keeping my Copic Pens in an old canister so I figured that was the easiest place to start.  It only took 20 minutes to put this project together but it has also sparked the creative flow.  The only thing left to do is face my fear of using the Copic Markers.  I play with them but my inner critique keeps telling me I have a long ways to go before I can post those images.  Anyone else feel that same way??  I am facing that giant today and will post the finished result regardless of what I think of the finished look.  I have a tendency to be way to hard on myself.  Thanks for looking!!

"Major Babe"

It's been really hard to find time to make some projects to post on my blog but I am determined to make a few items this weekend which I will probably post on Sunday.

In the meantime I thought it would be fun to show you a photo of the "Major Babe" in my life.  I think he looks adorable!!  This shirt thing all began because I had to cut off most of his fur last Sunday (believe me this was not an easy decision to make).  I bring him to work everyday and he gets lots of love.  All that love and attention means his undercoat can get really matted.

This is the second time in almost 10 years that he's had to have the whack job done on his gorgeous fur.  The first time he was so stressed at the loss of his fur that I had to make an emergency visit to the vet to help his stomach problems.  The stress was caused because he wasn't use to the feel of the wind on his skin or how a stick feels if he gets poked walking through the bushes.  It was major sensory overload. 

This time - he is so incredibly happy.  He absolutely loves his new look.  Ironically I put the shirt on him to help keep him warm and he loves it.  Believe it or not when he sees me pull out a shirt he leans his head towards me and lifts his right paw so that I can slip the shirt on him.  It's the cutest thing.   What do you think??  Personally I think the blue looks perfect with his red fur.

P.S.  I never knew he has such a cute "bottom".
