    Your ornaments are so cute! Love the photo one, but the paw prints are adorable! I can’t believe you’ve already had Bella so long. <3 You guys are so lucky to have her, and her you.

    We don't decorate for the holidays, but sometimes I'm a little jealous of those that do!

      Thanks Deb! I’m really glad they turned out. We’ve had Bella for a year and 2 months now! It’s hard to believe it’s been so long but I can’t imagine our life without her in it. She’s such a special puppy!

      We decorate a bit on the inside of the house but don’t go overboard. I’d like to someday decorate the outside. Our neighbors all go crazy and put up tons of lights and decorations. It looks nice. But damn, a lot of work!

    Eek – I love that picture ornament! So awesome – my husband and I had our honeymoon in Key West and I have an ornament with the date 2000 on it.

    I am torn about whether to decorate for Christmas or not – I don’t think I did last year because Tony wasn’t feeling well, and I ended up celebrating Christmas with my family in January because of everyone’s schedules.

    But then I think – snowmen make me happy – I have about 400 of them, so I may just bring some of them out.

    Just trying to put one foot in front of the other and trying to remember to . . . breathe. Hugs!

      Thanks for your comment. Glad you are considering decorating. It might be a special way to honor Tony. Put your honeymoon ornament on the tree. Big hug!

    Well, for the kitties, you can collect all the hair and then felt it into an ornament LOL! I think there actually is a book on Amazon about felting with cat hair (seriously).

      Hahaha I will pass. Although it wouldn’t take long to collect enough hair. Damn. Cats are short haired and yet there are cat tumbleweeds all over the house….

      I did a craft fair once and a woman there selling hats and the like as well as handspun yarns… made from her dogs’ and cats’ hair.
