Oh my Oh my

Yes, I have a little boy, but sometimes he wants to be like mommy and have a "ponytail" as he says. Yesterday was the first day in a week that he did not have diarrhea, a tummy ache and lack of appetite. Pretty much I gave in to him for simple request such as, "ponytail mommy!"

Above is us playing outside. If the ponytail fell out he would cry and beg for another. So silly.
Then below was later in the day. He took a nap and luckily I got him off of me and onto the couch so I could sneak in a quick shower (and let me tell you what a small wonder that is, usually I shower at 10 o'clock at night).

This season has been especially busy with custom orders. I love it but it has keep me very busy and I have not had much time to make my own art...but that's ok...not complaining!
I have put up a few and some I may have posted in progress or before so sorry if I have doubled up. I have one left to finish up, and I am not 100% sure I will get it done in time and most importantly shipped out in time, but it is for a friend of mine who is being very understanding. :)

Here we go....

"Willie Hour" - 24" x 32" fabric on wood

"Spanish Mackere" - 9" x 24" fabric on wood ...the cool thing about this piece is it is meant to hang over a doorway!

"Tree of Life" - 12" x 14 Fabric on wood

"Honeymoon" - 12" x 14" Fabric on wood

"I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon" - 12" x 14" fabric on wood (love the title of this one!)

"Simon in the Starlight Lounge" - 10" x 12" fabric on wood ( love this title too and this kitty just looks like the sweetest!)

Well there you have it. And I get to let out a big *SIGH* :)

Hope you all are getting ready for the holidays...they are almost here!

Mr. Calhoun

Last week we lost our beloved dog Calhoun. My husband has had him since he was 5 weeks old, hiked 600 miles of the Appalachain Trail with him. He was 13 1/2 and it was really really hard to let him go. I thought I would do a little post with a few photos. Most of my photos of him are on my desk top but if I put some on this computer I may add them later.

He is the one in the back of the top photo...Alex is the one closest to the camera. They were a tight little pack. It still hurts so much that he is gone.

Best buddies

Always in the background. you sweet Calhoun :)
