It's been SOOO long!

I know, I know. Two weeks without writing. I've been busy, okay?! I finally got a job interview last weekend...didn't get it. I was bummed. I finally got my etsy shop up and running...not bites yet. I'm bummed.So to cheer myself up, I'm showing off my pets!

First is Symba, tough and mean on the outside, cuddle monster on the inside.
Second is Lady. The epitomy of cathood. We are here on her sufferance.
Last is Sheldon. He's actually in a temporary plastic bin in this shot and is attempting the great escape. You know, when we got him, he was the size of a Toonie and now he's as big as a dinner plate!

And then these are some of the bags I've been working on. I really need to get better pictures though. These didn't come out very well at all. The last two (Star Messenger and Butterfly Messenger) are for sale.

So much to tell

Now picture two store fronts and five apartments in that space. I look at that and am humbled.

On to happier news. Yesterday was the Bowmanville Maple festival! Here you see the swing band that was playing ALL DAY! I can't think of a time when they took more than a five minute break. Good for you guys!

This is the girls boxing club. My hubby wanted a picture, so I obliged. They were so red and tired and still kicking a**. It was great.

One of the MANY dogs being walked throughout the festival.

This guy was one of the biggest. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of the jack russell puppy that tried to pick a fight with him. The big dog looked so confused!

And of course, this is our visitor from the Bowmanville Zoo. I don't know his name. but boy was he smelly! They were giving rides to kids, even when it started raining.

The profile there is my second daughter, and this is a view of the parking lot across from my apartment. There was a tilt-a-whirl, kiddies coaster, tons of junk food and those games of chance that are really just ways of emptying your wallet. Fun for all, in other words!

Lastly, this is the actual view from my window, screen and all.
Now, for my last bit of news...MY ETSY SHOP IS OPEN!!! I've only got a couple of messenger bags on there for now, because of money constraints, but in a week and a half, May 13th, I'll be adding about five or six more things, including jewelry my eldest made! Yippee!!!
