The day began beautifully with lots of sun and birds singing in the trees, and Brenna and I took a lovely early morning walk. It was so nice and peaceful. I think she enjoys walking in the morning more than the afternoon and evening. The neighborhood is quieter then, so that is probably better for our shy girl. She is starting to open up more and settle into the routine around here. She is even getting used to the cats, though she does not exactly “love” them yet. But for the second day this week, I caught Max, Maggie and Brenna all resting together on the doggie pillow! And for once I had the camera handy, so here’s a pic of the three sweets lounging around:
Molly has not warmed up to Brenna that much yet, but I’m sure that one day they will be friends. I did get a funny pic of Molly today. While I was working at the kitchen table with some sequins, I dropped one of the floor. When I went to pick it up, I couldn’t find it….that’s because it was stuck to Miss Molly’s cute little nose! She had no idea it was there. So, there she was, walking around the kitchen with a little blue heart where her pink nose used to be! Hee, hee!
Later on today, it started to rain, just a bit, which reminded me once again that I don’t live in Texas anymore. It sure does rain alot in Southern Illinois, especially in the spring. It also reminded me of the fact that I still hadn’t started all the seeds I wanted to this season. I’ve not yet decided where I’m going to plant all my little tomatoes, peppers, sugar peas, and various flowers; but I’m hoping that in the next couple weeks hubby and I will get out and plot out some space in the back yard. Look at those cute little baby tomato plants! Hope they will survive transplanting.
Last, but certainly not least, I was able to catch just enough of the sunshine today to get a few shots of my newest craft project! My Mousie Marker giveaway got me thinking once again about other animals or shapes I could use in designing more book marks. And I am excited to say I was able to sketch a resting cat silhouette that I think makes a perfectly sweet little bookmark. I have to admit I was inspired by Renovia’s cat sculptures with designs on the “bum” (like Flor here), thus, the little flower sequin decoration. I can’t wait to head to the store and get some more felt. I plan to make these in lots of colors with a variety of little sequin decorations. I’ll be posting this little darling in my Artfire pet shop, and if you’d like one in a specific color, I’d love to do a custom order for you. Just send me a message via an Artfire message! :o) And don’t forget to enter my Easter Giveaway for your chance to win a free Mousie Marker of your own!
