Ornies, ornies....and more ornies!

So sorry! I haven't been a very good blogger lately, have I? Well, this is only a portion of what I've been busy doing along with my stay at home mom duties. I am working on some handmades for a Christmas shoppe and they are opening next weekend so I have been busy, busy, busy! I always share pics of my dolls, so I thought I'd share a few of some ornies I made. I made two dozen of the stitchery stars with various sayings stitched onto them and two dozen of the fabric candy canes. Both have been stained well and sprinkled with fine glitter. I have some gingerbreads and some snowmen and santas I'll be working on and I'll post those when I get a few finished. . . . . .

Not too awful much has happened since my last post, though I did have a few setbacks. Last week we had to have one of our dogs, Walker, put to sleep. It was a really hard decision because he was part of our family for so many years. We got him about 10 or 11 years ago when I was getting my degree in college. He came from the pound and he already about 4 years old when we got him. He was really a wonderful, smart dog when it was just me and Craig, but after we had kids, he became a different dog. He wanted nothing to do with the kids and would snap at them constantly it seemed. One day we were sitting right there and Chad was walking by and he snapped at him and nearly got him in the face. It has been a rough week, but at least we still have our other dog, Chloe that helps to fill in the empty space.
This is her. She is our 6 year old English Mastiff and she is the BEST dog with our kids! She loves to lay around and let the kids climb on her and love on her. Truly a gentle giant.
And here is a pic of her and Sage. She loves to follow the kids around and give them slobbery (and slimy!LOL) kisses. She sure is a good dog and we all sure love her!

My other setback was that all my late nights finally caught up with me over the weekend and I woke up with a bad cold. It was mostly sinus head cold and for a few days it took the energy right out of me. I am feeling better now, but trying not to push myself too hard yet cuz I still have lots more to do. I still have to finish my stuff for an exchange we are doing in a few of my ebay groups......Well, I gotta get back to work while the night's still young and get supper started. I'll post more hopefully soon! :0)

Love your ornies. You are so very talented.
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I have been there and done that. truly hard but better in the long run.
Cloe reminds me of my B.F. doggie. Same kind just hers is a male. They are gently lay around the house dogs and I love him to pieces. Aunty Pea brings him cookies. LOL
Just keep breathing my friend and I do hope you feel better.
