Sweet Dreams Mobile

I just finished this craft
project called,

It was a lot of fun! :-)
I just adore craft kits.

Our 24 hr houseguest

Isn't he just a living doll???

Some neighbor boys were holding this dog and standing by the stop sign at a cross street for a long time, and finally hubby said, "What are you boys up to?" ~ We know these boys, normally they are in the front yard playing 20 questions.

Anywho... they explained that they found the dog and were standing at the stop sign waiting for its owner to drive by looking for it. So hubby suggested they take it up to the vets and see if it has a microchip. Well, there dad said, "No, Im busy!" So good ol' hubby took the dog and went to the vets.

The little dog didn't have a microchip (If your reading this and your pet does not have a microchip either, it really is a good thing. You never know when something might happen to your dog or cat.) So Ted left his info with the vet and came on home, made a sign and hung it by the road and he put the dog in the x-pen we have downstairs for when Lola, our foster dog is having one of her aggressive mood swings. Anyway... I was oblivious to everything that went on, so as I be-bopped down to do laundry, I saw this precious bundle of joy and squealed and immediately took him into my arms where he was most of the night and today.

I heard the whole story and posted an ad on craigslist.
I also made hubby repeat exactly what the boys had said and I kept asking questions to see if their was more to the story (I watch a lot of criminal minds and csi - haha!) So, come to find out... there were 3 dogs. 2 small dogs & 1 boxer. The boxer ran off and a white van drove by and grabbed one of the dogs and the little boys got the other dog. Which was now at our house.

He was recently groomed, the vet said he was 4-5 years old and his teeth were sparkling white! Someone would be missing this dog.

Well, this afternoon the emails started 
coming via craigslist and the vets office.
His name is Chewy, short for chewbacca 
and he loves to chase squirrels.

The boxer found his way home last night, but the other dog, the female yorkie is still missing!!!! The owner is just besides herself and feels horrible. At least Chewy will be cuddling with his people tonight and hopefully whoever owns the white van will do the right thing.

These pictures were to show how small the dog is, 
that is a normal size bottle of vicks.
Next to my iPhone.

Craft Room

My little buddy, Chris
moved out of our home
"on good terms you little gossipers :-)"
and I turned his room into a craft room.
On the left side of the room
not shown in the picture
are book shelves.

I can't tell you how nice it is
to have a nice big craft table.
I love this room so much,
I don't ever want to leave it. :-)

I was making Halloween cards for an
exchange I am in.

Every card was different,
but this one was/is my favorite.
Simple, fun & it makes me smile.
Nothing like shakin' the old bones
on Halloween.

Speaking of old bones,
my lil' Chihuahua Nina'
is looking so old.
Her congestive heart disease
is really aging her fast.
I thought I lost her this past Sunday
from a really severe seizure.

I'm not ready for her to go anywhere.
She is getting extra medicine, extra love
and extra prayers.

Cashew Cream

Soak Cashews in hot water for an hour
soak cashews in water over night
throw all in food processor
and pulse away
adding more water for consistency that you want.

I had made this for a scallop potato recipe
that I am not putting the recipe up for.
It called for like 12 garlic cloves
and I did not like it. Way too garlicy!
But the family sure gobbled it up.

Cashew cream is pretty cool!
When Amber worked at a raw
restaurant called Thrive in Seattle
They used cashew cream in a lot recipes.

On the ELLEN show recently
she showed that you can use cashew
cream for macaroni and cheese
and as a dip w/ flour for frying for 
making mock chicken fried steak.
Yes, Ellen is a vegan.

Halloween Kits

I bought this kit from Brandywine Designs on etsy:

It was so much fun to make!!! :-)

I don't see this particular kit that I made on etsy anymore but look at this one: Vintage BOO girl It is darling!!! I have bought a kit from her before and it was a lot of fun to make.

I love Halloween kits! :-)
I am looking for a new one to buy.
