Project Life :: Goodnight, Sweet Neumann :: October 2015

We had Nuemann since he was a little, chubby 8 weeks old Pug puppy. He was 15 years old this month. We will miss him.

He was 15 years old on the left, and 13 on the right.

We had a great time with him.

Here he is with his sister Pearl. She was adorable. They were only 6 months apart and always together.

She was mostly deaf and blind in one eye so she followed Neumann everywhere he went. They loved each other. But they’re together again and running free. We enjoyed them for so many years. For that I am thankful.

Project Life :: Ace gets his first haircut :: 2015

Ace is a dog from the Korean dog meat market. Gross, I know. He was rescued by DPS Rescue in California. He was quarantined in Korea, and then brought to San Francisco. We were his foster family and, of course, we couldn’t give him up! He’s been with us since May 30, 2015. 

When DPS rescued Ace he had lived in a cage for his first 3 years. He was completely covered by matted hair so, of course, he needed to be shaved before they started taking care of his health.

So THiS was his first haircut. When we first fostered him he had short hair and grew to be so fluffy! And he was given the cutest haircut- he looked like a whole new little pup!

We LOVE Ace and highly recommend DPS Rescue in California. They not only rescue dogs from Korea, but also dogs from the high kill shelters in Southern California, as well as rescues in Silicon Valley. They have adoptions every weekend in Palo Alto and it’s always very exciting!

All rescues are fostered, loved, taught how to be pets, walked on a leash, socialized with whatever animals they are fostered with

Paper Feathers, unfinished

 

I love paper feathers. i have been using them in scrapbook layouts but also as part of gift packaging. I tie them with a string and they make the packages so cute. I will have to photograph the next gift I use one on. 

These feather are unfinished. I need to have my husband sew them- he’s better than I am. I used a few papers that I thought will be great for autumn and winter. I used WRMK paper ‘Indian Summer’ as well as other papers. I used gold, silver and black paint as well as Mr. Huey white spray sprinkled and sprayed.

I drew my own feather shapes like I did in one of my first blog posts and then I copied them into three different sizes so they can be layered. I like the way they came out so far!
