I hope you have enjoyed all the great doggy projects so far.
Today I am sharing with you a layout of my son and his dog. When my daughter moved out she was unable to take her dog with her. This happened at the time of my youngest son's birthday. She asked if she could give him the dog as a birthday gift. Marie became his dog. It was very cute to see a skull and crossbones kind of guy all pink and girlie with Marie.

I hope you find something today that inspires you to get out there and get crafty!!

This is Zac. He's my goofy big baby.

This is Little Bear. He has been my baby for 7 years. He has been through a lot of emotional times with me. He is my little support.

For the first time in 24 years I do not have a child going back to school this year. My youngest child got his GED last month. My next school experiences will be several years down the road since my grandson and granddaughter were both born just this summer. So, I was not going to originally participate in this blog hop. But then I remembered that I do have someone going "back to school". My son's partner is working on an art degree. So I started searching for something to make that would benefit an art student. Several years ago I found some pencil holders in an art store. I purchased one. It was rather expensive. I looked at it and thought I could figure out how to make my own. This is what I came up with.

I plan on making more of these as my foster daughters have all fallen in love with these too. I can see that I am going to have to break the sewing machine back out and get busy.

I hope you like my little pencil rolls. Maybe they will inspire you to get out there and GET CRAFTY!!

Up next is SHARON!!!
