Bouncy Ball Baby Blanket, Button Loafers, Moose & Brin's Sweetheart Sweater

Thursday, October 31, 2013

 I've been so insanely busy!!! I can't believe this YEAR is almost gone! It went ZOOM! Here's some projects I just recently finished. Far from done with my list, though.

Custom order Bouncy Ball Baby Blankets for Kathy, my step-mom, for two coworkers who are due to have babies in November.

Shoes to match the blankets.

I feel like I'm constantly making baby shower gifts. Here's a Moose for a family of hunters from our church. It's so cute, it hurts!

Finally, I hit an all-time low. I made a dog sweater for my dog. In all fairness, Lil Miss INeedACheeseburger actually NEEDED it. She gets cold really easily. So, here's Brin's Sweetheart Sweater.

She's Ours!

Brin is home from her spaying and is officially a Marshall! Yay!

This is our temporary/potentially permanent house guest for the next week, thanks to the Twin Falls Animal Shelter. Not sure about her age, but we think she's younger than Charlotte. She is super sweet, gentle, eager to please, and gets along okay with Charlotte (Charlotte, a.k.a. "the diva", wasn't thrilled about the idea at first, but she's coming around). She acts as if she's always been with us and I think she will be a great addition to our family! We have named her Brinley (Brin for short) for her beautiful brindle color and she is a Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua Mix.

Isn't she a doll? We just love her!

Grilled Thanksgiving Anyone?

Thursday, October 3, 2013

My dear husband...

While waiting to get checked in at one of his stops, he decides to enter a giveaway for a grill. We never win anything, but a boy can dream, right? Months pass...and we find out he's won the stupid thing. I am still in shock. I'm still trying to sweet talk him into selling it and buying me a nice lens. No dice.

Thanking God for the fun things He didn't have to give us. Too bad it's so stinkin' cold and a propane tank isn't in the budget.

Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treats

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Made these for Drew's Cubbies group. I should have added more color, but oh well. I don't normally do cutesy treats, so this is a major accomplishment for me.

You can find the recipe here, thanks to Pinterest.
