I've also been hand feeding 2 baby Chinchillas.. The mother is one of my first place show winners but I won't be breeding her again. Nothing but problems for my poor girl.. and then her babies needed round the clock feeding because she just doesn't have enough milk for them. I am happy that Melly the foster mommy seems to be doing an okay job as both babies seem to be doing good. One girl and one boy and since I won't be breeding mom again I am keeping both babies.
I've not been sewing much, but I think today now that no one is home I will break out my sewing and the new Harry Potter movie as I've not seen it yet. It is really nice to have a few days off. I never have time to do anything I want to do, so it's nice that I can spend a few days relaxing and getting things done. It's a strange feeling!!
But first as soon as I can get a bit more light out of this dreary day I am going to take some pictures of the bears I have made. Anything that I don't have up for sale now should be up by the end of the day.
I am still trying to decide if I want to try ebay again....
Hope you all had a good Christmas!!!

larger guys that will be going up as soon as I can get some photos done.

I need a vacation.. I am exhausted... it's not going to happen though! lol. I spent the weekend assisting in the installation of the cabinets for my parents kitchen.. they look awesome but we still need another weekend of work there to get it totally done.
Tomorrow, I've finally got someone to do the roof on the house. At least that will be one thing off my plate... as long as they actually show up and do it. I have tomorrow off due to Remembrance day but I have to go to Calgary so that is pretty much a write off day. 6hrs on a long boring road. Blech. At least I don't have to make the trip alone as my Brother and his g/f are going to come with me... I really don't want to drive that far alone.... the big sissy I am.. heehee.
In 2-3 weeks the new floor is going into the upstairs bedroom.. I hope! Seems every time we try to tackle something things go wrong. It's picked out though, it just needs to be ordered and then installed and the closest has to be painted and finished. XX <-- crossing fingers. It has been dragging out forever it would seem.. but will be SO worth it! I've still not had time to get the new bears up for sale.. I have photos of all the minis done. I just need an hour or so to actually get the photos uploaded. Unfortunately I've not had ANY spare time the past month it seems. I really hope things get a little easier soon as I am worn out. I need a break! I want to sew, take some photos or go out shopping one day. *insert pout*
Well I better get back to work here.. I wanted to leave you with a photo of the latest Chinchilla baby that was born here.. but it won't upload so I will have to do it another time.

I've taken a few days off, well not off work as that has been pretty steady... but some days off from running around like a chicken with no head. I have been mentally and physically exhausted from trying to do everything. The shows totally burned me out and I remember about 8 years ago when I took a break from them.... I now remember why. When life gets so busy that you don't have time to sew... trying to get ready for 2 shows in 2 months is not the best plan. You can't work 24/7 without being burned out... well I can't anyway :) lol.
The funny thing is after taking a week off I want to sew again! lol. Unfortunately my house looks like a bomb hit it. Today I will be cleaning it, digging up my bulbs and spending some time with the chins.
Yesterday my brother and his g/f went to see Zombie Land, it was an awesome movie! I laughed harder than I have laughed in a long time. I can't wait till it comes out on DVD. :)
Speaking of DVD's, the long awaited Trick 'R Treat movie was finally released to DVD on Tuesday. Why this movie did not get theatrical release is beyond me. It was FANTASTIC! Everything a horror movie SHOULD be. Without being so shocking or so horrible that you don't want to look... or having it bother you for days, like most of the new "horror" movies do to me now. Trick 'R Treat was funny and scary and had twists you were not expecting.. and best of all it circled around Halloween. It is an instant Halloween classic. Go buy yourself a copy.. lol.
Well time to bundle up and go dig in the dirt! lol. Hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving!

Not really so much a lie... well, I know I promised more updates, at least one a week... but I've just not had time to check in and write. Work was hectic all week and I have been battling a cold all week as well.... still am I guess... SO that's my excuse.. lol!
So it's only one more week till the doll show. I can't believe how quicky these last few weeks have flown by!
So for today I'll share a few photos of my table at the show... but then I have to get to work here. I want to have a few more critters done for the Doll show so I need to get moving this morning :)

In Chinchilla news my last litter of Baby chinchillas are almost ready to meet their new Mommies. I will be very sad to see these ones go. I've become quite attached to the little devils. I am still trying to decide if one should stay with me... but I think I have new mom's lined up for all of them. :-/ Always a difficult decision to make.... heheee.

Speaking of Halloween I am starting to see the stores have Halloween things..... I bought myself some cute Halloween Oven mitts the other day.. lol. They can keep the house festive all year! lol.
Well I better get back to work here. Hope all is well with everyone..

The sad news, my grandmother died yesteday. I had planned to see her tomorrow but she had fallen ill the other day.. they said she had the flu and not to go there because I get sick very easily. I am overwhelmed with sadness. Her and I were very much alike.. but I can't talk about that right now because I can't stop crying.
She had told me she was ready to leave.. but that is not making it any easier.
Today we have things to deal with and they are not happy things.
I need some strength to get through the day.

Things have been very busy here the past few weeks. We made a trip last weekend to visit Brads Dad in Sylvan lake. I found Brad a little Lawn tractor so he has been having fun... working/playing with that.. lol.
I am in the middle of moving my studio to the main floor... it's taking way longer than I thought it would! lol. That always seems to be the case though! I will be going home to work on it again tonight.
Made a trip with Kristina to the Miniature show yesterday. It was a cute little show I will have to post a few pics of the new treasures I got. We went to the mall after and I managed to find a few articles of clothing and a new purse.. my Poor old purse has seen better days.
So not too much new! I will be working on some new critters once the new sewing area is set up! Time this year is going by much to fast.
Hope you are all having a lovely spring :)

I have a 6.5" Siamese kitten done! Yay! Soon he will make an appearance. I just want to make him a little collar or give him a ribbon.
I have also been working on a few new minis. Mostly those little litter boxes. I'm sold out of them..Who knew... I guess my sense of humor is not as odd as I thought it was! lol.
In other news my baby Chinchillas are getting so big :) I am now trying to decide if I can keeping one.. or selling them both.. lol. I will see when they are ready go leave Mom, they still have a month with her so after that I will decide. I will post some new pics of them this week. Hopefully of the new kitty as well. I will put him up for adoption as soon as I can!
I also hope this week to get my Clown bear up on ebay.. I've been holding onto this fellow for too long.. lol. I really like him.. BUT I think I need to give my collectors a chance to have him and not be greedy.
I finally got to see the movie Twilight a couple weeks ago. I loved it. I am now reading the first book, although it may take me a month to get through it with how much time I have to read.. lol. Oh well, who needs sleep. ;) lol.
Hope you all have a wonderful easter, full of bunnies and chocolates!

Went to see the movie Coraline with Chris and Brittany a couple weeks ago. It was a really fun movie, I am looking forward to the DVD already! I highly recommend it if you like Stop motion movies.. Or movies that are a little odd and colorful. Might be a bit scary for little ones.. but still a very fun and wonderfully put together movie.
This past weekend Brad and I drove out to Sylvan lake to visit some of his family. We had a good visit and got to watch The new Batman movie, which was awesome. I can see what all the fuss was about. Saturday we made the trek from Sylvan to Calgary so I could visit a couple of Chinchilla breeders. It was a really great experience and I learned alot. Both ladies we very nice and helpful I can't wait to make the trip out there again.
So not too much else is new.. My apologies to the people who read my blog. I am still here plugging away. Have not had much time to sew but hopefully this weekend I can have a day to myself to get some work done! I have two gorgeous kittens that need to be finished as well as some colorful little guys that I traced on before the accident.
Soon soon soon!
