#50 - Spunky and New

It feels like ages since I've logged in to write a blog even though it's only been a week! I can see that I have a lot of catching up to do in reading about all of our friends and their adventures. It'll be a lovely Saturday catching up with everyone :]

Thank you to everyone for your warm wishes and love that you sent along for Ringo and the rest of my family. Ringo is adjusting well and fits into the family like a glove. He's already very attached to my mother and can't stand when she leaves the room. (The photo above is of Ringo sleeping on my mum's lap outside. So cute!) And we've already picked up on some of his cute quirks. For instance, if you say "buh-bye" he barks and spins in circles before running to the door to prompt you to take him out. It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen. As for an update on his health, his mouth is healing well and his stitches from his neutering are healing up and he seems to be doing just fine. He's already gained 2 lbs. which is very good because he is much too underweight for his height. I am glad to see that his new home makes him as happy as he makes us.

JD likes and respects his new pal. They've taken to running with each other and nudging one another playfully, so they're on their way to plotting mischief together already!

The boys have been keeping me busy, as have my crafts, which is why I haven't been blogging as much as I usually do. I've also been cooking up a storm in the kitchen. The boys get fully home-cooked meals now and my own vegan diet has gotten me to be much more creative in the kitchen. I actually enjoy going grocery shopping and I've been vegan for exactly one month now. I'm loving every minute of it and look forward to sharing some recipes with everyone :]

Since my crafts have been keeping me so busy, here's a peak at what I've been working on in the past few days:

And here is the new tote that I designed and had printed that just arrived:

There are several other new items available in the shop now and I've also begun listing Pugkin Head hats so that people can order now and beat the rush this fall.

I hope that all of you are doing well and are planning to enjoy a nice weekend. Is anyone planning on venturing out into the heat of these summer days?

Well, I am off to read some of everyone else's blogs to catch up on all of your adventures. Tomorrow I will re-open the raffle for the Tumbler Toy, since we only had 2 entries (both very sweet!) I want to give more people the opportunity to enter. Enjoy a lovely day :]

Hi Jess!

JD and Ringo already look like great
pals. He looks like he found his match
with you guys. Your crafts look great!

Daisy and I are heading to Los
Angeles this weekend for the Renegade
craft fair. We can't wait to be out
of this 110 degree desert heat.

We hope you have a great weekend!
