Mr. Pudge and More

Things are certainly much busier in my household!  Yikes!   My daughter convinced my husband into a new dog and you know what that means.  The mom gets the majority of the work!  I must say she has been very helpful and loving to our new member of the family.  Here is Mr Pudge with Luke.   Luke has adjusted very well.   He has had a few sad looks at why he doesn't get everyone's  attention but having a Pudge for a brother will do him some good!    Both Luke and Pudge are rescue dogs and they are very glad they have found a home.   Luke was chained to a tree for his first two years and  I don't know much about Pudge.  I do know that he knew that our home was his forever! 

Really not sure about this mom!

Well o.k., maybe...

He smells kind of good.               

Well what I am working on.....some Christmas gifts for my neighbors and family  Every year I try to think of some recycled ornament that I and the kids can make to hand out.  Here is what I came up with but can always be adjusted.  I made this out of a jar lid and also put a magnet on the back so it can be used on the fridge.

I am probably going to put a different image like vintage house of some sort instead of the dog.   Think that it might stand out better and look a little bit more like Christmas.   My other project were these beaded gloves.  This is sort of tedious for me and I probably will not make very many.  I also like the first one because the kids can make these using what they might like!
