Summer Time Fun ~ A New Little Change Purse

Happy Monday everyone!

R-Chee & I had FUN this weekend making this little change purse that is just like the one I made last year!

I felt like making something fast and fun for Melly and I had an open afternoon, a purse frame and her favorite colors right in my yarn and fabric stash! :)

Ta Da!

I just love how it turned out and I just gave it to her this morning and she loved it too!


What FUN things did you do this weekend?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about it!

Color is Bursting Inside and Out!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Color is bursting everywhere this time of year inside and out!

The Colorado mountain and hill sides are popping with wildflowers!

R-Chee & I are having so much FUN finishing up a crewel embroidery that I started many years ago with Emmitt by my side!

Now my Archie gets to help me too!

We are making this into a new piece with wool leaves added in and different a interesting way to mount it that is floating in my head.

I will be able to share the finished pieces with you soon!

What FUN things are you up to today?

Please leave me a note and tell us all about it!

We cannot wait to hear!

Friday Funnies ~ The Pug Herder :)

 Happy Friday everyone!

It is me...

Have you ever tried to herd a pug?

I thought it might be a quite a challenge...

But, as it turns out... it is really quite easy!

All you have to do is get behind them and run! :)

It turns out, puggies are not as complicated as I thought!

I think Archie will make a very good minion ...
Don't you?


Here is a movie I made of my first training session with R-Chee...

He is a fast learner!

Next I will get him to hoover up all the peas and grains and noodles I dropped from eating my breakfast this morning...



Kiss Kiss everyone!

Have a wonderful day!

I think mine is off to a great start!

What else should I get R-Chee to do for me as my personal minion?

Please leave me a note and let me know!

I would love to hear your ideas!


Wednesday, July 16, 2014 ~ New Product ~ Ceramic Banks

Happy Wednesday everyone!

As promised on Monday, here is my 2nd new product for you to enjoy!

They are great for anyone who needs a safe spot to drop their change from their pockets!

The banks are also the perfect gift for anyone going away to school!

You can fill them with quarters to give them to do their laundry on campus so they will not have to bring it home every weekend! :)

I keep mine in the laundry room to empty out our pockets before any load is dropped in the washer so our loose change does not get mixed into the machine!

The banks even come with its own guard dog built right in!

You can add any of my 100+ pug or dog paintings to your bank!

The bank's design is wonderful!

Your fortune is easily retrieved by taking the rubber stopper out of the bottom of the bank!

Please visit my website if you would like more details and to choose from the over 100+ pug and dog paintings you can put on your bank.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions.

I am always here and happy to hear from you!

Friday Funnies ~ R-Chee Knows Whose Boss :)

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday!

It is me... R-Chee!

Guess why I am running today?

There is a bossy little body in the kitchen so I am running around the backyard before he puts me to work cooking his lunch!

Do you know who this little guy is?

Let me give you a hint...

or better yet, hear it right from the horses' mouth...


Help me! :)
