Remember the 129 eyes Jennifer from RockCandyMosaics sent me? I'm slowly working my way through them...I think I'm down to 120. Here's my latest wip, using a roadside find, a vintage plate and TWO eyes! Stay tuned for the finished results!

A lab and a bottle of hot sauce

Custom order card
Originally uploaded by smashgirl
When Corri from Puppy Dogs N Polka Dots sent me a convo the other day, asking if I could make a custom card for her I told Lucy to get her beauty rest! The next day after buying my hot sauce ...remember I live in California and we drink hot sauce so we were out...I opened up the cookie jar and the photo shoot began!
Lucy is a natural for the camera, she did a fabulous job...take a look!

For Lucy

For Lucy

I made these homemade dog cookies for Lucy, she loves them! They're made with pumpkin and whole wheat much healthier than store-bought. After the loss of Buster I've become a
bit paranoid about tainted pet food, and often wonder if Buster may
have been a victim. The extra effort is worth it, knowing that these treats are safe for Lucy. One kids want to know why
I don't make any cookies for them???

I've been featured on Rare Bird Finds!

My "I love you more than pancakes" card featuring my late dog Buster was picked by Amanda of Rare Bird Finds and featured on her blog! Thanks Amanda, this picture of Buster pining for the pancake is one of my favorite photos. I like to think that Buster is in doggie heaven eating as many pancakes as he can !
Be sure to check out Rare Bird Finds blog, it's filled with so many cool things to buy, and her Etsy shop, Little Pies for homemade organic dog treats!

The Girls get Pampered

My friend Jenny and I decided that our white dogs were looking a little dingy so we made plans to take them on a "spa" day to the local doggie shop. Pet Treasures in San Clemente has a U-Wash area for your dogs. Giant tubs that would fit any size dog, nice warm water, shampoo, conditioner, brushes, towels, blowdryer, ear cleaner, doggie colonge and they do all the clean up!

A couple of dirty dogs in need of a bath, first...a stop at Starbucks!
Did you say "bath"???

Clean again!

Best friends!

I'm usually a last minute person but this year I've decided to be a bit more organized so I'm making fun new things for Valentine's Day! I'm so proud of myself!
Here's my latest heart titled, "Our Love is Not Black and White".
Here's just one of the many heart cards I've added to my new shop, smashgirl cards. I love finding interesting and pretty colors in old magazines.
Now, I must try to be organized in all aspects of my life!
