Hi all! Sorry again it's been a little quite around here. We still haven't had a chance to order a new power cord for our laptop and can only post from other people's computers, which isn't often.
One plus to the lack of Internet is that it's one less distraction from my work.
I've been able to get a lot of work done lately. As you can see in the picture, I have a snowman, a cat, and a few ornaments in the works, and much, much more. My holiday excitement is building!!

Like I said, I don't have anything ready for a giveaway, but I will. In the meantime, I've decided to do a little house cleaning and put on a sale over at Etsy. Just head over to my Etsy Shop and you'll find some significantly reduced prices under the "SALE" tab.

Here's a piece from last Halloween that never found a home. I've marked him down to almost half of his regular price. Grab 'em while you can; their prices will go back up Sunday!!

100th Post!!

I can't believe I've babbled on for 100 posts, but here it is! I'd hoped to have something planned for the occasion, like a giveaway or something, but I dont really have anything ready.

Actually I just needed to pop in to say that we fried another computer cord for our laptop (our only computer) and have not been able to post. This is the second cord to bite the dust and it's really frustrating.

Anyway, maybe I'll have a giveaway for post #101 or 102, keep checking!

Fun at the Zoo

Steph and I both had Saturday off, which is unheard of, so we decided to make the best of our day. There's not a lot of significantly fun things to do around our neck of the woods, but we do have a small zoo. Though small in size, the Ellen Trout Zoo is considered one of the "best little zoos in America."

We decided to bring our nephew and niece along for the fun, and a fun day we had!

We kicked off the day with a ride on "Z & OO Railroad."
This was my favorite exhibit. Looks like something straight out of the Jungle Book.

This guy looked much bigger in person!
The rabbit wasn't part of an exhibit. He was next to one of the cages and I couldn't resist taking his picture. I thought it ironic that most animals probably want out and this one appeared to want in, lol.

Having a drink. I had my picture taken here when I was his age.

This is the only zoo I've seen where peacocks roam the sidewalks. They were all over the place!
