Gollywobbles The Ditty Bag

Run over and be prepared to spend lots of time on Sam's blog!

Sam of Gollywobbles has created a blog, dedicated to the works of other Artists.

This blog is one of my favorites because Sam shines the lime light on so many wonderful Artists and Crafters with unique, wonderful items! Just today she featured me and I was so excited I just had to tell you all to get on over there and check it out!

Sam gives new meaning to the phrase "Random Acts of Kindness"!

Thanks So Much Sam!

One Alien Claw

Alien life forms do exist.
One report has shown that after spending last night in the ER with an 18 year old
Teenager (aka: Alien)... for slamming her right thumb digit in her car door...
the proof strengthens that Yes, Alien life forms are all around us.
This particular picture shows an unbroken digit, covered in a massive bandage.
The Doctor report reveals that the Alien claw will fall off and she will sprout a new one.

As you can see, completely bed ridden... (this was just a couch but it has been transformed to appear like a hospital bed). The Alien appears to be doing well and seems excited that she has a 4 day Doctors excuse from work.

The Aliens Earth Mother smiled the entire visit at the ER last night until 2:30 am, but frowned at the Doctor for not giving Her a 4 day, no work ticket.

When the Earth Mother mentioned to the Alien, that Earth women can have children and go home the very next day and continue their routine... the Alien just gave a blank stare.

My research to prove Alien's do exist will continue.

Blessings, Jean :)

Happy Birthday to me ;)

I've had such a relaxing quiet day... it's sure a fun week with Christmas, then my Birthday and then New Years right around the corner.

I worked a little on two penny rugs that will be up for sale soon... then a little ditty bag filled with drieds.... and some fixins. I also managed to cut out another dolly, but I'm not sure how I'm going to create her. She may be sawdust filled... or rag filled... I need to look at her a little longer to see how she will come about.

I was also cleaning out my cedar chest here and I found the very first hooked rug I ever attempted... yes, I used cotton calico's! (can you believe it?) But I'll post a picture of that hopefully tomorrow for you all to see. I also found the second little rug/mat I did. I managed to use wool on that and it's of a Sun Bonnet Sue.

Chug Explosion!

I was TOLD Miss Riley would only be around 4 lbs full grown!

She weighed 7 ounces when she was found.

I believed everyone!

Hmmmm Still could happen right?
She only gets Cheerio's for treats!

Uh oh.... she obviously did not listen to her growth chart.

11 lb's on the head right now. I guess it's time chuggy goes on a diet.
It's not a bad idea being as Riley's Mommy is going on one also.
By the way... Miss Riley is a mix of Chihuahua and Pug. aka: Chug... a lug a lug a lug

My New Favorite Chocolate Treat!

My Teen recently made a few batches of these.
I think they are called Oreo Balls and she got the recipe from one of her College Friends. They are so good and so easy that I just had to share it with you!

Take one full package of oreo cookies (just the reg. kind) Put in blender and blend to fine (or nearly fine) Dump in a bowl. Add one package of cream cheese (softened) Mix with your hands (lol) Make little balls (or big ones) Take melted white chocolate and drizzle all over the tops of them... Set them in frig to chill and harden up some.

Get glass of milk, eat until you say UGGGG... repent later!

ps... just thinking to myself... don't they make MINT oreo's now? ohhh those would be good also for these!
