A bit of this and that....


(Click here for the goodie giveaway!)

Good morning!  Just thought I'd give you a peek of what I've been up to lately.  I made a decorated tree and a basket of cards for a cancer fundraiser (which is today).  This week I have been sewing dogs and bones and finishing up my cards.  Whew!  I'm glad I am done for this year...I really enjoy doing it, but am relieved when I am finished and my tree is delivered!

This year the tree is in honor of our puppy Paisley.  She is 5 months now and tips the scales at 50+ pounds...she does not look like a puppy anymore!  The dogs in the picture are gray because she is a charcoal Lab.  A lot of people havn't seen a charcoal before so we get a lot of inquiries as to what she is... she has been called chocolate, blue, silver, and purple!  LOL  We have a blue cream cat, so I get the blue, but I have never seen a purple dog before!

Here are a few more pics of the tree:


Paisley loves to lay on her back and have her tummy scratched, so that's why this dog is belly up!



Here are a couple of pictures of Paisley.  The first is at 7 weeks and the second at 14 weeks; she is much bigger now, but it is hard to get a good photo as she is rarely still!



Thanks for stopping by; I hope you have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!

The tree is just splendid Angela. Did it go quickly at the auction? Hope it raised lots of money for the cause. Oh my gosh, Paisley isn't a puppy anymore, what a gorgeous dog she is.

Wow, angela, this tree is amazing! Love the tree skirt and the little dog ornaments. I can't believe you sewed them! Please do a follow up post letting us know how much your tree went for--I bet it was a lot. Great charity too. You are awesome! (Oh, and Paisley is adorable!)
