Google+ What I Made Today

I made chewy-tug-fetch toys for my sweet Halley. I made four of them actually, out of an old fleece pullover that I picked up at Goodwill at least two years ago. It was pristine when I purchased it and was still in good condition, despite some ingrained stains, but I don’t wear it anymore because I just get way too fiery warm in it! I made these toys even as I wait for the tug-o-war braid with the tennis ball that I purchased from Woof Purr Creations. Actually, I ordered two. Halley LOVEs them!
I used up the last of my 2007 stash of comfrey leaf oil by mixing it with a bit of chickweed oil and making a few jars of a nice soothing, cooling, healing balm. Calendula is next! (I really should post this on When Weeds Whisper, huh?)
I made progress on my projects for the Suzi Blue class that I’m taking, part of which involved prepping these lovely scraps of handmade recycled paper that I purchased from Claudia’s Creations. These will be embellished with little goddesses and at least one will be part of a card. 

That's what I made today.

The chewy toys are a fantastic idea! What a great way to use something like that.

Thanks girlfriend!
I just added my name to google alerts so I could know when I was mentioned online...and the very first one is YOU! Your blog is adorable (especially love the banner) and love the embellishments to the handmade paper.
Halley rocks!
