Thinking spring....and a new addition to our family...

Though I'm still working on Christmas stuff for next year, I can't help but be thinking (and wishing a little..hee hee) for spring. I am ready for warmer weather. And less wind....anyone that has lived in Casper or around here can totally relate...LOL. I've been working on a few springy things I will be adding to my site tonight. Primitive black doll and ditty bag......

I know what you were probably thinking about our new addition and no, I'm not pregnant. LOL. We got a PUPPY........

Awwwww.........he looks so innocent when he sleeps. He is a chihuahua puppy- 9 wks old- the kids named him Popeye. He is so sweet and very, very affectionate- he just can't hold his licker! And the best part is he absolutely LOVES the kids......he follows them around everywhere and climbs into Sage's lap to nap. I have forgotten what it's like to have a puppy and how much they sleep! Actually our 8yr old Mastiff sleeps as much as he does so never mind. (Anyone that has a mastiff knows what I mean about how much they "nap" .LOL) We went from one extreme to the other- we have a giant breed and a toy breed now. Funny! I'll have to try and get a picture of them together.

On another note after a lot repeated prodding, poking, nudging and elbowing from friends and family, I finally joined facebook a few days ago. I have my facebook badge there on my sidebar... I dragged my feet about joining before because I didn't really feel like I needed one more thing to keep up with that would take away from my time with family and everything else I have going but I have found (and been found) by classmates and friends I haven't talked to in years, so I'm glad I finally did it. So everyone that kept after me about it ~thanks!~

That's about all I have to share for now. I'll try and post as I get more handmades finished. ~Jody

What a tiny little puppy!
I LOVE your new dolly and her ditty bag!
I am so ready for some spring too! I have been to Martins Cove 4 times, 3 of them in June, and all 3 times in June we had snow and WIND! Lots of wind! Blow your tent clear into Neb kind of wind!
We do get a lot of wind here in Easter Utah too. Not so bad this winter. Knock on wood.....but I'm looking forwards towards Spring. (which always brings more....you guessed it...W.i.n.d.) LOL
Enjoy your day.

You do beautiful work!
Love the new addition! We have a Chihuahua too! I remember when he was a itty bitty thing like your Popeye! He is still little, especially compared to the Shepherds, but he holds his own with them! ;-)
Prim Blessings,
