I’ve been taking names and kicking butt-well, more like making lists and getting it done!
Look at this adorable dog, Rebel, modeling one of my newest carriers:
Cute, right?! Even cuter in person. So, three carriers are up for sale in my shop and I have some sewing to do today for a few more that will be more masculine styled for the men with big hearts and small dogs.
I’ve also been writing more articles and interviewing more interesting folks. This weekend I was at Stringtown Cellars and Lavender Farm talking with winemaker John Adams. He will be my next feature story for Ruralite Magazine. He served up a nice winetasting along with some yummy locally-made cheese. Needless to say, I got a great article in the works and some wine for our Thanksgiving meal. Hurrah!
Things at home are getting better…relationships are not always easy and do take work. But it’s worth it in the end. My issues ranged from a lack of communication to not feeling loved by my hubby and teenage daughter. It’s hard for me to speak up about my needs and to tell my truth, I always worry about how it will effect the other person while neglecting the fact that I matter too. So I pushed myself out of my comfort-zone and did just that. It was hard. It felt like everything was going to fall apart and it was all my fault, but you know what, it didn’t. It actually helped. I know that saying “it all works out in the end” is such a cliché`, but it is really true. Fear of the unknown can hold us back from changing what we know-even if what we know is what we don’t like.
So yeah, I’m making it happen. Hope you are too!

Great work on the stuff at home! I decided to drop this note because my last blog post speaks exactly to what you just did – I think you’ll dig it, and I think you will find some encouragement in it. Great work – know that!
Awe honey you are so loving, and loved! Glad your still on the sunny side of the street, you deserve it! Where is your work sold? Do you have an etsy shop? Please include it so your many fans can support your great artistic tallents!
