Little Monsters

Happy Saturday. I hope your week has been a good one. Sophie is sick again. It started Tuesday night out of the blue. She is still on the new antibiotic too which is really odd. She usually relapses when she goes off the antibiotic.  I left a message for the specialist vet she went to see about 6 weeks ago to call me back on Thursday and he never returned my call.  When I called yesterday they told me it was his day off and put some stupid vet on the phone who wanted us to bring her in again. I told her no because the dog has been there 4 times now and they should be able to just switch the antibiotic. My vet is trying to figure out what to do in the meantime but it is just so frustrating. This is what I go through with my doctors she should not have to go through that too. I have her on the full dose of Neurontin right now which seems to be helping some with the pain but it is so hard to see her like this again. I just hope something can be done to help and she will be feeling better soon. 
In the meantime I wanted to share a custom order I finished last week. The buyer was having a monster themed party with black chevrons and rainbow colors for her 1 year old son and wanted me to make a matching hat and high chair banner. This is what I came up with. Click on the banner to see it close up.

 The monster images are from this SVG file. I made the party hat on my own then added a balloon from this digital file The chevrons are from this digital paper pack 

I am really happy with how it came out and the buyer was too. I hope the rest of your weekend will be a good one,we are suppose to get some more snow here this afternoon into tomorrow. I hope it won't be to much but we could use the moisture. As always thank for stopping by.

Sweet Love

Happy Monday and Happy February too. Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been swamped with Etsy orders. My printer decided to break last week too which was really bad timing. Thankfully Rich was able to get me a new one in time and the orders were able to continue on schedule. I am greatful for the all orders but this many is starting to take a toll on me physically. My shoulder is giving me problems again from using my arm so much.Thankfully the dogs are doing better at the moment though.
 Today I wanted to share one more Valentines Project since Valentines Day is Thursday.
I made these a few weeks ago using this SVG file called Pop On Over from My Time Made Easy. They are a super cute way to package cake pops, or lollipops. As you can see, I made a boy version and a girl version. I used digital patterned paper to decorate them and some tiny tags attached to satin ribbon to finish them off.
This is what they look like when opened. Hopefully you can use this idea on Thursday to give something sweet to your loved one.
Thanks all for now. I hope to be back soon to share some cutsom orders I have been working on. In the meantime I hope you have a great week.
