Hedghogs

Another  Round Robin started by ScribbledMissives, I added the second hedgehog and SunArt finished with the rest.

As you can see,  Round Robin is a set of 3 cards worked on partially by 3 different artists. Each adds something to all 3 cards and at the end, each artist gets to keep one card. This is a really fun way for artist to collaborate on a small ATC size. :)

On other news. Baby is only 10 days away. I can't believe how time flies. And it hasn't hit me yet that I'm going to be a Mom. So weird! :)

Elsa and Bunny

If you remember a few weeks ago, I told you about my cat Charlie breaking his canine tooth. He had the tooth root removal surgery this Tuesday and when I got him back he was still drowsy from the anesthesia.

When I let him out of the box, he staggered into our bathroom, went behind the door, sat in the corner and watched the wall. :) I was laughing so hard at the poor cat. He looked like a kid that mom sends to stand in a corner for punishment.

Then if that wasn't funny enough, he went and laid down in kitty litter box. Luckily it was clean as he decided to take a nap in there. Well, because I didn't notice he peed himself in the box, his back legs and tail were wet and when he got out of the litter box, the litter stuck to him and I had to clean him up and vacuum the place. But it was still funny. :)

Random ATCs

Some random ATCs on a chosen theme for a PAT (pick-a-theme) swap. I love these PATs because they challenge me with new themes. :)

My due date is in 3 weeks. :) I'm getting exited. I have doctor's appointments every week now. All is good except my iron levels.

I didn't take supplements the last time I had my blood work done because I was feeling fine and I thought I'd fix it with food but this time around my hemoglobin levels dropped to 99. I wouldn't worry about it but I want a water birth and one of the conditions is to have hemoglobin levels above 100. This means I'm taking iron supplements now.

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!

Holly crap, people! It's cold here! We finally got snow over the weekend. Where I live we had 40 cm (16") of snowfall in 2 days. Then everything froze because the temperature dropped to -20°C (-4°F). 
Mom and I did all the shopping on Monday so we wouldn't have to go to town during this arctic freeze. Of course we had to put chains on tires just to get out of our driveway. Thank goodness we didn't throw away the instructions because putting them on is not as easy as it seems. We put them on wrong the first time and when they came loose some plastic around the tires broke off. Oops!
The dogs though are loving the snow. They go crazy every time I let them out. I haven't made a snowman since childhood but here are some drawn to make up for it. :)

Merry Christmas


Wishing you all Happy Holidays! :)

These are a bunch of ATCs I did for an Animal Christmas/Yule swap. I find them adorable. :)

Random stuff:
  • I had a package waiting for me at customs and they wanted to charge me 25€ (31$) of custom fees because the sender put down a value of 100$ for it. I refused to pay it and tried to convince the customs the value was a mistake. I can proudly say I won the battle. :) I only got charged 4€ in the end because they had to process it.
  • Lesson here is people, do not put value on your "personal" parcels going internationally because you only cause custom fees for the receiver. Do not think you get the value back if the parcel goes missing in transit unless you've paid for insurance as well. And even then you have to prove which objects were in the parcel and that they truly were worth the amount you wrote.
  • You know the saying that your pets are a reflection of the owner? Well, I need to figure out what the hell that means for me when I have one pet with allergies causing her paw inflammations, one pet with an eye problem and another one with a broken tooth.
  • Luckily we managed to fix the allergy one (for now) by throwing away a full 15 kg bag of kibble and replacing it with a more expensive one that is less allergenic.
  • The one with the eye problem I'm still waiting to see how it will go because the antibiotic did help but didn't fix the problem.
  • The tooth one is now toothless. One of his canine teeth broke off and we're scheduled for operation after New Year's to get the root out so it doesn't cause problems.
  • So there you go. Very entertaining holidays for me. :)
