Another bullet

The Bullet.
Our old Boston, Tammy-(who passed away 6 years ago) was lovingly nickname "the Bullet" by our old neighbor.
Lighning quick.
Maybe it's just a Boston thing.
She's always on heh move and it's so hard to get a good photo of her.
And growing like a WEED. I swear she's grown 2 inches at least in these 2 wks of having her.

I seriously can't wait to be able to sleep in again though. It's like having a newborn all over again...

In other news...

Gearing up for my largest art fair to date. Then another large one the weekend immediately after that.
3 weeks I have to get my butt in gear, get more stock and sew tablecovers.
Gosh, I hope my sewing machine will work for me this time...
A little stressed...

Gabe has his tonsils/adnoids out tomorrow.
He told me at the park awhile ago he thought he was going to throw up...
All of the neighbor kids have been passing the sickies around for a couple weeks and I was hopeful we'd avoided it---high fever and throwing up and lasting over a week...
This CANNOT happen now! I will be paranoid all day and night waiting for something to pop up and have to cancel his surgery at the last minute...

School starts next Monday for Chloe and Sept 6 for the boys. Amazed at how many blogs I've read where their kids have started school a week or more ago!

Listening to chatty boys upstairs who are supposed to be napping...(

Feeling a little funny now myself. Telling myself it's allergies and exaustion from the dog having me up so early each day so I crank up the kiln and go ahead and torch at 7am for awhile...
(I'm totally a sleeper...torching at 7am is so not my thing!)
I need a nap now...lol

Pardon the dust on the bust (lol)

I've had a handful of glass button flowers (inspired by Cassie Donlen) that I knew I wanted to make something with and it finally came together the other day :)

Fun fun colors...

Why har-roww there!
My name is Gigi!

(Mom made me this nifty temprary nametag from an old washer).

I am 2 months old today!

I love:
hinges (?)
an old towel
my teddy bear

I have:
the softest fur
nice white socks on my front feet
1 black toenail on my left foot (my birthmark;)
a pretty pink argyle collar
sweet puppy breath
a funny soprano coyote howl (that comes to visit at 5:45 am each morning)
a cute little bellybutton on my chubby belly

I came to live with my new family 3 days ago. So far I'm fitting in just fine...;)
I might be a smidge happier if these kids would let me down on the floor now and then though...lol
