Benny's okay!

My sweet, old dog healed up on his own (with the help of Michigan Veterinary Specialists and meds given 15x a day)!

Unfortunately, we're having some technical difficulties with our online proofing system, so some wedding galleries may not be available for the next 24 hours. Please don't be alarmed, we'll be back tomorrow by midnight.

Benny's still okay

Benny (my dog) has been to the specialist several times now, but he appears to be healing pretty well on his own. We're not out of the woods yet, so please keep the thoughts and prayers coming. And thank you all very much for thinking of my fella.

Joe took us down the street for a few portraits the other day, I thought I'd share them with you. Didn't he do just a lovely job?

Benny, my BFF

I've been a terrible blogger lately, I promise I'll get back on track soon... we've been busy with my best friend, Benny, a 15-year old mutt that I adopted forever ago. He's very spunky and youthful, but he's only got one eye and it was injured last week.

We've been to see a canine ophthalmologist (who knew they even had those?) and we've got a plan that involves surgery early next week. We should be able to save his sight, but there will be a lot of work and worry for us.

If you're the praying type, please put in a good word for Benny. He's the coolest dog in the world. I'll be sure to keep you updated.

My newest acquisition

I'm still making dog and cat collars in all my free time, and I've sold enough to buy myself some fancy new Gingher thread-snipping scissors. There's a lot of detail work that goes into making tiny collars, so a good pair of scissors is important.

These are beautiful and precise. They're made in the US by a 50+ year old company. My mother has their fabric shears and has enjoyed them for years.

If you love good tools, check Gingher out.

Who has an eternity band?

I love the look of these and want something small and simple that I don't have to baby. I'd love to hear about yours, whether you like it or not!

(Joe, remember, our anniversary is next month. And I like white gold.)

I couldn't resist

Keep calm and carry on

I must have this print I found in the etsy shop blulima. It's an important sentiment in these trying times, no?

I'm still selling my own handmade dog and cat collars on etsy, and adding 25 more this week. Tiny collars, small collars, and new big dog collars, just in time for Christmas. A percentage of proceeds from the big collars will go to a shelter, so it's a two-fer!

If you haven't seen this really should. No matter which side you're on, be sure to register to vote, and then go do it! I'm proud to say I've voted in every presidential election since I turned 18 - which if you listen to me is only a couple because I don't always tell the truth about my age. ;)

Anyway, I really enjoyed this star-studded video, it's very well-made.
