On Friday, I showed you the projects that I had planned for this weekend. And I actually managed to get two out of three of them done, which isn’t too bad – especially considering the fact that two special little guests arrived late on Saturday night. Meet John:
They’re 12 week old Catahoula mix puppies and our newest fosters :-) Yes, two. We’re crazy! They’re soft & cute & cuddly and give great puppy kisses, which kinda makes up for all the pee and poop ;-)
Blurry action shot:
Poor hubby was on his own with them on Sunday while I was at my art class. But he survived, so it couldn’t have been all bad ;-) I made two paintings, which I’ll pick up at the end of the week after they’ve been lacquered. I’ll show them to you when they’re officially done, but here’s a sneak peek:
A big thank you to my friend Susan Bailie at Art Walls for showing me and four fab ladies how to create cool foil art :-) We had lots of fun, lots of laugh, and yummy butter tarts :-) Susan is planning another workshop in January – if you’re in Ottawa, I highly recommend signing up!
I also managed to finish another PARA Paints Blog Crew project – I painted the door to my craft room. It was originally typical white with polished brass window trim. I taped off the brass trim and sprayed it with grey primer and then black mat paint. Then I painted on a silver metallic paint to create a faux zinc effect. The door is P5196-51 Platform Sandals with P5021-34 Splurged Again along the edges. Oh, and I replaced the brass lever knob with a brushed nickel egg-shaped knob. It’s hard to get decent pictures because the room is small and the light sucks – this is the best I could do without giving too much of the room away. Gotta save something for the final reveal!
Considering how much time and work the puppies require, I suspect I won’t be getting too many projects done over the next little while. It’s amazing how much pee and poop comes out of their little bodies! Our two guys and their three brothers will be available for adoption in a couple of weeks – check out the Catahoula Rescue Ontario web site in a day or two to see all their pics and read their profiles :-)
