Cards and other things

As most of you know Mom is opening a new blog to sell her cards and other pet related things that she makes. Here is a sample of some of the cards she has made this week (don't forget you can click on the photos to see them bigger) Mom will be donating ALL the money from the sales to the Elephant Sanctuary and also the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Don't forget to vote for the new blog name ----------------->

Mom also loves making unusual animals such as this pig. Mom made the pattern herself, the material is calico and it is stuffed with 100% fiber fill. She then hand painted the entire pig using the Australian Dot Style - she used fabric paint so it is actually washable. Each animal she make is totally unique - she couldn't duplicate a pattern if she tried! This little pot belly pig is about 12" long and stands 10" high and is super cute.

In other news I went to my vets yesterday and I had another shot for my allergies (so far it hasn't helped) He recommended trying a different type of allergy medication. He couldn't find any redness on my nose but my chest was very red and he was rather concerned about my scratching at that and possibly causing a skin infection. Mom says she will put booties on my feet to stop me scratching so much - ppppppllllleeeaaassse -Booties - REALLY Mom !!!! We have stopped the prednisone and he says that should help with the feeling hungry all the time.

  4. The cards are really nice. Are they pop up or three dimensional - we love them. And that pig is very creative too.

    Hey, just think of those booties as a fashion statement, bet you could get some cute ones.

    Hope the new meds help.

  5. The cards are just amazing and the pig is so unique!

    Hope you don't have to wear the booties to keep from scratching, Reilly!

  6. We love the cards - you have one very talented Mom! I suffer from allergies too! I have to wear socks - otherwise i would scratch myself raw!

    D uses special shampoos on me and that has helped - maybe we should start an allergy blog?

  7. Awww Reilly, your Mom can make cute things...but nothing is as cute as YOU! :) But that pig is going to give you a run for your money on the cuteness meter. She is really talented. I hope your itchies go away soon! Especially before it gets really hot this summer!

  8. I'm so sorry about your itchiness. Is there something you can do with medical shampoo as well? Hana used to have sensitive skin and we gave her medical shampoo bath twice a week. It's tedious and it helped her.
    Your mom is so talented, the cards are so beautiful and I love the pigs too. They are so unique!

  9. We just love the cards and will look forward to popping over to see your mom's new blog.
    We do hope you get rid of the itchies Reilly - they are so very annoying.


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
