You all know how much I love animals especially Buster who makes me laugh all day long.
This was his response to me opening the window by his box.  He loves watching birds and that tail goes 100 miles an hour if there is a bird sitting outside on one of the rocks.  He probably wouldn't know what to do with it even if he got a hold of it.

I've mentioned before that I have a friend who has three dogs and I walk the dogs every day because she has a bad knee and hip.  She moved to a new home 3 weeks ago so I ordered new tags for the dogs with their new address on them.  I didn't realize when I got home that I had Beau's old tag in my tool box.  I know a lot of people who have lost animals and they keep their tags and throw them in a drawer and never do anything with them.  I wasn't sure if it made any sense but I wanted to do something special for my friend since these dogs are her life now that her husband died.

I took Beau's old tag that he had since they rescued him and did a Kumihimo bling and attached it to a large key ring and put a swivel lobster claw clasp on it so she can put some door keys for the new house on it.


I'm a little nervous, I belong to a face book group that does polymer clay swaps.  It's in an international group which is really great.  This time my swap partner is Laurel Steven.  She does beautiful work so I hope she's not disappointed with what I'm sending her.  I'll post it after I send it to Laurel.

Now I have to go clean off my work table and get to work on the things I'm sending to the Oklahoma Clay Guild for their retreat.  Wish I was going to be there.  Christi Friesen is going to be there and she's my favorite.  She has such a great sense of humor and she loves my cheesecake.  LOL

Bonnie, you have nothing to worry about--all your work is beautiful!

What I great Idea for using a dog tag. I'm sure your friend will be touched by this gift. I've been saving my dogs' license tags and was thinking about making a charm bracelet from them.

My partner has already compeleted what she is sending me...yikes! I am still in the brainstorming stage! Love the dog tag creation!!
