The more I sit in anticipation, the more the days come slowly. Less than two weeks away, and I’ll totally be jumping up and down (or keeping my hands full with things to do). EEEPS! I can’t wait to share the news. (HINTS: Something I have always wanted. Something that needs to be picked out. Something you have to shop around for. My family is excited. — any guesses? If you know the answer, please don’t give it away.)
Yesterday, I decided to take some time to sew, so I went to pick up some fabric. I ended up making a blanket for Maui, since she needed a new one. Besides, there was no way I was going to spend $30 at a dog boutique on a blanket. I made one side flannel and the other side fleece — two of her favorite fabrics! On top of that, I LOVE the patterns. I wasn’t sure if she was going to like it compared to her puppy blanket, but I gave it a shot any way. Here was the end result:
I’m so glad she approved! Otherwise, I would have donated it to the local pet shelter, Human Society Silicon Valley. You can never go wrong donating! 🙂 …and while we are on the topic of dogs, I found a couple of things for a true bargain the other day.
1. Kong Wubba Toy: I found it for about $2.00! I couldn’t pass it up the deal, so I bought it. It’s a great fetch and chew toy. She chewed on it for at least an hour last night. I would totally recommend this to any dog owner, and I’m pretty sure they come in all different sizes.
2. Monster Mouth: I found this funny and cute dog toy on sale! It was about $2.00 as well. I think they normally price them at $7-8, so I scored myself a deal. It’s similar to the rubber Kongs where you put treats inside, and your dog can spend hours trying to figure out a way to get them out. I, personally, like this design much better.
Here’s a toy Maui doesn’t have, but I’d totally buy it to get rid of doggy boredom. I’ve seen the squirrel version of this at a dog boutique, but I’ve never seen the turtle one. I think the turtle one is funnier and cuter.
Okay, I’ll stop talking about dog toys. I’m sure I’m boring everyone with this topic, haha. Besides, it’s not like she needs anymore toys. Not only does she get spoiled by me and Gloria, our families and friends spoil her too. If I took a picture of the toys in her toy basket, you’d think we were crazy. 🙂 Maybe I’ll go through her basket of toys and find some to donate to the shelter.
Okay, as promised… the winners to the RAKs! A big thank you to everyone for playing and linking Red Oak Lines to their blogs. I totally appreciate it! I randomly picked these names out of a bowl of entries, and here are the results:

Congratulations, girls! Please email me your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will send out those packages as soon as I can. Also, there’s still time to play along with the ribbon and scraps RAKs; you have until the end of today.
As for scrapping, I haven’t had the time to scrap. I guess I’m in the middle of a creative block with paper crafts. Someone please send me their mojo!
