AVIM, and Other Things

The craft thing at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum was kinda weird this year. Only two artists signed up, including myself, and the evening of, I was the only one to show up.

I did fairly well though and the octopus and owl stuffies I made sold pretty quickly. I didn’t sell all of them, but I did sell several. Kids loved them.

I ended up making I think it was $37 over my table fee which is pretty good for such a small event. I took that $37,and turned it into this :

There’s a pleco in there too somewhere – my mom bought me the fishies today. I’ve named the Oranda Alberta. 🙂

Yuba is still growing –  he and Tejon are unit into ponies. Kinda makes me wonder how big he’s going to get… Lol.

I bought a drop spindle and some fiber so I can learn to spin. I’ve only tried it a little but I think I’ll like it when I get the hang of it.

I haven’t been cleaning much the last week and a half because I killed my back moving a TV but I am trying to track down the parts we need to fix the furnace. The house hasn’t had heat in literally years and it gets freaking cold in winter.

Here’s a quick pic of some stuff.

My little Christmas tree and my super festive eyeball garland! And my super colorful curtains! Ignore the plastic bag and my shoes… Lol.

Help Hawk Find A Home

Several months ago, this handsome boy wandered into my mom’s yard. We had him checked for a microchip, and he had one, but his people didn’t want him back. We’ve been calling him Hawk.

He’s mostly or maybe even all German Shepherd, and he’s a big boy. Easily 100 pounds. He’s also incredibly sweet, very friendly, gets along with other dogs, and he’s chicken safe. He has a rooster he snuggles with every evening.

He knows a few commands, he’s neutered, and he’s just an all around good boy. He’s also older – I would guess between 6 and 10 years as he’s just starting to go grey around his nose.

I’ve posted about him on the Book of Faces, and I’ve also contacted a German Shepherd rescue in Los Angeles. I’m hoping to either hear back from the rescue soon or get another lead on who to contact. We don’t want to take him to animal control, but he really does need a loving home where he can be part of a family.

Hawk went home with a nice family 9/25/17. I hope he’s found his forever! He deserves it!
