Wow, I haven't updated in a really long time!  SO sorry about that!  I don't know if anyone is even reading or checking here anymore, LOL, but just in case, wanted to share the Etsy site where my Mom and I are now selling our homemade dog and cat collars, leashes, harnesses, and hoodies!  I've been selling them the last few months a couple pet forums I belong to, but now we're "official!"  Cool!  :) 

www.pbjworld.etsy.com

There are tons of dog collar sellers on Etsy already, but hopefully we'll get a few sales here and there.  :) 

In other news, I am doing well.  Just got back recently from a big roadtrip and am still busy at work!  Not really obsessed with any new TV shows yet.  Still waiting for the next one to suck me in since SGA was cancelled.  Still bummed about that one!  The pups are all hyper and happy and doing well too.  :)  Jelly turns one in a few weeks already!  It still seems like I just got her.  Time goes by way too fast!  Obviously, since it's been way too long since my last post!  Sorry about that, I will try to do better at staying in touch with everyone!

Huge thank you to  jeyla4ever  for my new banner!!!!!  :D  Thank you Camy, it's gorgeous!!!!!

Now if anyone out there can tell me how to change the layout colors to better match, I'd greatly appreciate it!  :)  I have the layout format saved, but I don't know what the numbers for the colors are.  How do you find that?  After all this time, I'm still totally LJ ignorant.  :o  It's currently a custom CSS that was set-up for me.  I can see where to insert the new color numbers, but just don't know what they are!  I think maybe a more green shade to replace the two blues would match better?  Anyway, if anyone could help, I'd appreciate it!  I really just need to know where/how to find the color numbers.  :)  

On a completely unrelated topic, I just got the Blackberry Curve 8900 today!  LOVE it already!  

And on another completely unrelated topic, I made two more sets of collars the last few nights when I should have been sleeping.  I really hate insomnia, but I do have to admit, I get a lot more done.  These were made between 3am and 5am.  :)

I asked for a basic sewing machine for Christmas so I could learn to make my own dog collars.  I love having matching collars for the dogs and I love to rotate them frequently.  At $20-30 each, it gets really expensive though!  I found instructions online and wanted to try myself!  So I got a sewing machine for Christmas and Mom gave me basic lessons on how to use it.  So I've been making collars galore lately!  :)

Trying to get some pics of the pups for Valentine's Day, but they weren't especially cooperative.  These were the best I could get.  Ah well, it was still fun!

Jelly is 6 months old now!  She's gained almost four pounds in the last month and is growing fast!  But she's still really small compared to Belle at this age.  :)   Just a few new pics of her!

Cyn, do you recognize this toy?  :)   It's still a big hit!  :)

Holy cow!  It's COLD here!  I mean, winter in Minnesota is always cold, but this is ridiculous.  -38 F degrees for the TEMP in parts of MN, -21F in my city right now. Windchill of -47F. It's so cold that on the local news this morning, they were able to hammer a nail with fruits and veggies. Don't believe me? Check it out!

I'm back home now.  Thank you all so much for your kind words and thoughts and prayers.   They helped so much!  A rough weekend, but still good to see extended family that I haven't seen for a while.

On a happier note,  this made me smile tonight:

I just got word yesterday that my Aunt Sally died.  So I'll be heading about four hours up north for her funeral on Saturday.  Just wanted to let everyone know so you don't wonder or worry where I was!   I've been asked to speak on behalf of our side of the family, so I have to figure out what I'm going to say.  I hate funerals.  And I hate public speaking.  But I couldn't say no.  She's been sick for a long time, so it was expected, but still really sad.  I have such great memories of her growing up.  She was always so happy and cheerful.  And she used to make us ugly homemade underwear every year for Christmas that we hated, but pretended to love for her sake.  :)  I'll miss her a lot, although really she's been "gone" for a long time now.

Oh, also wanted to introduce everyone to my newest addition.  :)  She was supposed to just be a foster, but she's fitting in so well, I think I'll keep her.  :) 

Meet Jelly!  She's a 4.5 month old Boston Terrier that is a puppy mill rescue.  She has lived her entire life in a wire cage in a barn.  So she has no socialization and no training.  It's a lot of work, but she's just the sweetest thing!  Petey and Belle just love her and Belle has been teaching all the joys of being a doggie.  She's learned what toys are, how to run and play, what snow is, and just tonight, how to go up and down stairs!  :)
