Finally!! I have told myself over and over that I need to get back to my blog, but as you all probably know, there is always something else that needs to be done; and another week goes by!! I love to write here and share my feelings, opinions and ideas, but just haven't done it...."poor excuse is better than none!"
We had a good Christmas, busy as usual but good! I can finally show what I made for everyone.....shell nightlights!! It's nothing you hadn't seen before, but they were lots of fun to do....I ended up making 50 nightlights, plus and additional 10 mice and 7 owls ! Here are some pics of the finished products. I should have taken some pics with the lights on!! I will do that and post them later!!
|Everyone is different!|
|Had to stop in early November until I could go back down to Sanibel and get some more Dosinias (The white shell in the background)|
|I hope everyone enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed making them!|
|The mice....you have already seen some of these! They turn out very cute with their long curly rubber band tails!|
|These Owls were fairly complicated, everything had to fit just right....I had some blisters to prove it from the hot glue!|
I need to start thinking about what I am going to make next Christmas!!...(and then head down to Sanibel again to gather some 'supplies'!! :)
Lily is growing and growing.....she came to us weighing 1 pound 1 oz....and now weighs a whopping 3 lbs!! That's triple her weight!! She manages to keep us very busy teaching her who's boss and what is allowed and what isn't! I must say, she is good for the heart!! She is so sweet, but oh so busy! After all she's only 5 months old today!! I'm not sure actually who is doing the teaching....her or us!! She has turned out to be such a joy to be around, but takes a lot of work!! You'll notice in the pics her 'peach fuzz' has turned into a beautiful fawn colored coat, that feels just like velvet!!
|She loves her toys!!|
|...and sleeping with Daddy!!|
|...hiding under the blankets!|
|She gets nervous riding in the car, so wrapping her up like a baby seems to really help! We call it an Enchihuahua!!|
|...more snoozing with Daddy!|
|Peeking back at her Sissy on her way to see Nana in North Carolina...her first long road trip!|
|Cuddling with Sissy on the NC trip!|
|And napping with Nana!! This is so funny because Nana doesn't particularly care for dogs, but I think Lily is winning her over!!|
Well, this post has turned out to be long enough....more updates soon, I promise!!
BTW....I have some exciting news for next post!! :)
