I haven't played in ages! So here goes! You can play too at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
Who could resist these fun stripey yarns from Hobby Lobby :) I've got patterns picked out and people in mind! Good thing I'm not exchange gifts until New Years, because I have a lot of crocheting to do!
And Painting-wise..here's what I have on my desk. Memorable Moments swap stuff. This is a swap I'm hosting, but haven't had too many people sign up for yet, but there's still time.
My cards are my greyhound in bunny ears, first dance with my hubby, found a pony... and the saddest card I've ever painted (Saying goodbye). In high school, I had this little monster of a dog that I adored. Corky developed lymphoma and we had to put him down. This was one of the last moments I had with him. You can see from just my outline that his poor submandibular lymph nodes are massive :( We'll see if I actually finish that one. Maybe it's strange to paint something so sad..but I place a lot of value on that memory. Since I'll soon be a veterinarian (just 140ish more days!), remembering how it feels to loose my own beloved dog helps me get my clients through the loss of their beloved pet. Unfortunately, I take the loss of my patients really hard too, and today was one of those tough days. There were many hugs and many tears along with a resounding feeling..that we did everything we could. That's the bittersweet part of being a veterinarian. *end random sad tangent*
The only of my Memorable Moment cards that is finished. :)
Merry Christmas to all of you!
And please remember to keep all your holiday food out reach of your pets (especially those chocolates and anything with raisins)!
