Christmas and Sandy

Happy Saturday/Sunday Everyone!

Super quick post tonight as I'm still in the middle of hibernating! ;-)

Freckles the Dog

Don't you love my puffer jacket (it's not too small for me, I'm just standing in a weird position!), I think I totally look "bad to the bone" with all the skulls and crossbones!

First off, if you signed up for Finn and Jazzi's Christmas Card exchange list, then you should have received the list and like 4 changes, by now! If you haven't gotten any emails, make sure you contact one of them! We've already been contacted by a couple of new friends from the list and can't wait to reach out to the rest of them this evening!

Domeek spent about two naps worth of time putting all the information into a spreadsheet, cause she's weird like that, so if you signed up and would like to have an Excell sheet for easier access, just let me know and I'll forward it on to you! :-)


Secondly, my friends over at the Two Little Cavaliers shared a Huffington Post article that I wanted to let you all know about! It's basically a Sew For Sandy group project! :-) 

Considering that so many dogs and cats lost all of their own belongings in the hurricane and find themselves in shelters and rescues until they can return home, lots of those shelters are now running out of supplies and desperately need help! So the Huffington Post is collecting home-made animal blankets, beds, pillows, and clothes to distribute to a few of the needy East Coast shelters! If you click on the article's link, it gives you wonderful ideas and directions on how to create a ton of different items! Since I don't have opposable thumbs and Domeek's leg is out of order, we won't be able to physically sew anything...instead, we are borrowing the Cavalier's No Sew Dog Blanket instructions to make some awesome blankets! 

If you do create anything for the Huffington Post, please send the completed projects to:
HuffPost Home c/o Shana Ecker 
770 Broadway New York, NY 10003

We had a ton of fun at Joann's Fabric this afternoon and we'll be posting about our fun project time later in the week, so keep an eye out for it! :-D

Thanks as always for reading and have a great rest of the weekend!!!

  2. Oh yes you are bad to the bone indeed. Looks good on you. And yes please send my the spread sheet. We have printed out the orginal, but a spread sheet would be good. Send it to pastormichelle13(at)gmail(dot)com. Happy hibernating.
    Blessings,
