Finally a Blog Giveaway, I have been gone too long??

Good Sunday morning to you all

Where have I been? I assure you right here
Just not posting like I should be
Why yes I have been missing having a blog giveaway

So continue reading to find that info towards the bottom of this post

See Miss Shelby she is pouting 
Because she spent a day this past week at 
that awful ladies building aka *the groomers* Smile!!!
She stayed mad at me for two days over this!

But now Rango is plain MAD!! lol
She is like why did you let them cut all my hair off?
And yes the first place she went to when we got home
is the dirt, that face was white!!!
I believe she does it to punish me?
I always get them cut short the this time of the year
so when they grow back more even
the next haircut will be a regular schnauzer cut 
for cold weather
UGH did I really just mention cold weather
This year has been wonderful in Oklahoma
I love fall but I dread Winter time so much!

and look this is Bean!! Yes we have a Rango and 
now a Bean *hubby named them both*
from the movie Rango :)
this is a wild kitty that hubby is taking care of

Now for my Reason for being missing
It all started, I regret to say 12 weeks ago
Yes I wish it would move along faster!!!

It actually begin with me and hubby taking down our
old carport, before pictures are on my old computer 
Then it was two piles of dirt sitting here
This photo is the rock being dumped

I will share photos on another post as things progress 
along on this project
We had a Portable garage building brought in
And then this last week got it wired and ready
for hubby to unload all of his stuff from my 
storage building, that will become a guest room
And FINALLY *my Studio*
Guest room was not in my original plans
But that is ok with me, just to gain a space to 
put all of this stuff that has taken over our home
And I am looking on the bright side of things
if I should feel a nap coming on while working
I will at least have a bed to lay down and rest :)
I will share this process at a later date
And show you my Little building along the way
There is so much to do, and it will take time
But overall it will be a much needed improvement 

And Now for a giveaway
due to this process and going through many boxes
I have found started projects everywhere
so I sold a couple of these and only have two more
that I will offer this year
One is for sale the other I will give to a blog reader

  1. Glad to see you are back. My daughter has a miniature Schnauzer named Jack. She bought clippers and learned to groom him herself. She does a great job and Jack is happier with her than the groomer. Saves money too!

  9. The pups look so cute but boy what a face on Rango!

    I would love to be entered.

    I am a loyal follower and I will share too!

  10. I know the pups will feel much better once they "get over it".

    I would love a chance at winning. I will post on my blog as well. But it might take me a while to figure out how!! (covering eyes)

  11. I'd love to enter, Brenda! I have your blog added to my blog sidebar, too (


  12. Welcome back Brenda..missed you...Mollie rolls in the grass after she's groomed but she does that anyway..

  13. It's been a busy summer for sure and I know you've gotten a lot done! Would love to have a Fall creation...made by YOU! Sweet hugs my friend! Don't work too hard!

  14. Oh, I know your studio has been on hold - I am anxious for you to have it! My dogs used to pout after cuts too, like they were mad or embarrassed! I love your pumpkin lady, pls enter me, I will post on my sidebar too! Thanks for offering this great giveaway! Keep on Creating! ~*~Lisa

  15. Brenda, you renovating so so exciting.Your own studio room!!! wow. That sounds wonderful.

  16. That is funny how your husband is taking care of him. You can tell by that look, that he is leery of people. When I found moki, he was crazy wild, but after a week he just came in and stayed. Now we are feeding our neighbor's strays, one is an old guy who eats a few cans a day and still skinny so I know he is sick and the other she let get pregnant and has knows there is food here and she is starving, way too small for a litter. Love the pumpkin, always love your prim pieces.

  18. Added to my sidebar as well. Thanks again!

  19. Btw I follow you through linky!

  20. Love your giveaway. I'll share it on my sidebar Brenda!

  21. My fur babies just got groomed this past week and the first thing they did when they got home was to go out in the yard and get dirty...but I heard they were angels for the groomer.
    Love the pumpkin you are giving's so cute!!

  22. I love a freshly groomed dog. I once had a poodle mix that I used to take to the groomers. Oh how she hated that place! But she would come home so soft and clean with pretty bows in her ears. And what was the first thing she did? Roll around until those girlie bows fell out and she rid herself of that pretty smell! I'm a follower and would love to be entered :)
