My New Hobby

I have always loved anything creative, and so, throughout my life I have dabbled in many different creative hobbies.

I have taken drawing and photography classes in school, I have scrap-booked a few albums, I have even created some little clay figurines. Blake complains that every time I pick up a new hobby, we spend a lot on it for me to do it for a little bit. He is probably right.

Irregardless, for the last couple months, I have a new hobby. Sewing. I cannot call myself great at it because I know I am truly a novice, but I do enjoy it, and I have made some pretty cute stuff if I say so myself. Many of them are baby things because I hope someday to have a baby to give them to, and they are easy and little.

The favorite thing I have made is the green and pink outfit. In addition it is soft and cuddly, and I can easily picture a little girl in it. The dress is not yet finished because I have to do the zipper and I am afraid to do the zipper for fear of royally screwing up the most important piece. A lot is girl stuff, mostly because I like how girl's clothes look better, probably because I am a girl.

My next few projects will be different styles of shirts. I plan on posting them when I finish too.

Labs are the perfect dog!

I have always loved Roxie since we got her, but as exciting events are coming soon (kitten and babies) I, of course, have thought about how she will be with both. Now, it is one thing to read numerous account that labs, as a breed, get along great with both kids and kittens. I am happy to read it, glad that information exists. The famous phrase is that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I would extend it to say that a video is worth ten thousand words.

So... in my pondering how labs and kids and labs and kittens get along, I turn to you-tube. I found a bunch of videos that confirm all that information without a shadow of a doubt.
