hey swappers.. ready to mail and new collage

I made another owl! and a candy corn! the little needle punch piece with the pumpkin face I made last year.. but I love to see the three pieces together! I just love cute things.. I feel sorry for my family sometimes! You can often hear them mocking me... "Oh my God... this is so freaken cute! Oh my god.. I just cant stand it.. Oh my god.. I just had to have this! " yeah, even my husband mocks me... hmmm of all the nerve you know???
It is kind of funny though, because I do say those words like, probably a couple times a day, especially when I'm on the computer looking at flickr and blogs!! I love what you all make and post!! (this is not a swap doll, but one a friend made! sweet isnt she?)

Hey Halloween ball doll swappers.. this is it..the last few days.. I'm thinking everyone should be about ready to mail.. some already have. I think I've heard from everyone.. but I havent checked my list to be truthful!
so let me know where you are if you havent already. Email me your pictures so I can post them at the end of next week so we can see what every one made and recieved! This is one of my favorite parts of hosting these swaps, (besides recieving amazing pieces of art from my partners) ... putting all the creations together on one page so we can see what every one made, all in one spot.
Here are a couple sneak peeks of the two dolls I made. They are both on their way to australia/tasmania right now. mailed out on friday am.. They will probably not arrive before this friday I would think. The first two peeks are for Grace....
The next two are for Michelle... I hope you like your dolls girls!

Oh, and I have to show you a couple more things.. then I've got to get off this computer and get my butt in gear to go to work!!!
I found these cute animal cards at AC moores the other day and knew that i had to have them to dress them up! so this is what I did.
In other news.. my kitty is justing hanging in there. I'm sure he has lost more weight, he wont touch any cat food, but last night and this morning he ate quite a bit of turkey coldcuts and some milk.. the vet told me to give him what ever I can get him to eat. I know i'm losing him.. I dont think hes suffering.. He doesnt seem to be in any obvious pain. I think his hips bother him. i can tell by the way he trys to lay down. He isnt cleaning himself very well these days, poor baby is just breaking my heart. I just dont want him to suffer. he is so precious!!

this is jasper dressed for halloween two years ago... he didnt really want to play my game.. but he loves me and tolerates me well!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

tomorrow is my birthday!! can you guess my age??? no.. never mind.. maybe we better not go there.... Ha!! I'd be devastated if you guessed older then I am! haha!

Have a great day everyone !

I feel so bad for Jasper. He looks like such a sweet kittie. When one of mine was going through failing kidneys and I was trying to get him to eat, I bought baby food meats and would let him eat them off my finger. We just recently had to put down our sweet Sebastian who looked like your Jasper. We think he had a stroke one day because it was that fast that his rear just wouldn't work and you could tell he had lost his lust for life. It is so sad to lose someone you love so much weather its human or an animal. The hurt is the same in my opinion. Take care and just love him to pieces!

We have an old dog who's not ill of any specific thing but we can see old age claiming him a little bit each week. We also have a cat who, while only middle aged, has some wasting disease. She doesn't seem to be in any pain but it's sad to see her so thin and skittery. It's a tough decision, quality of life vs. longevity. It's always hard to say goodbye, even when it's a slow goodbye.
