Tunisian Crochet - Fawn & Black Pug Dolls






Happy Friday everyone!

I am so excited to show you the two new pug dolls I just finished for my personal collection.

I had so much FUN making them!

I crocheted them using a Tunisian crochet hook for the bodies and then used my traditional crochet hook to make the facial features and limbs.











I just love how they turned out!

It is always so FUN for me to make a project without knowing what it will look like and then seeing them pop to life!

Thank you so much for always sharing in the excitement with me!

11 New Mother Bears are on their way to Africa!


Hi everyone!

Archie and I have been having FUN the last few months making new bears for The Mother Bear Project!

R-Chee & I love The Mother Bear Project!


All of these bears will soon be in the arms of wonderful children who will receive a big bear hug from us to them!

Here are some photos of Archie with the new bears for you to enjoy...

















You can knit or crochet your bears with their wonderful easy and fun patterns.

The best part is that everyone can help these wonderful children through the Mother Bear Project even if you do not knit or crochet in lots of FUN ways!

We cannot wait to make more bears for The Mother Bear Project!

You can read all about The Mother Bear Project, its founder, Amy Berman, and all the wonderful ways we can contribute to their charity even if we do not crochet or knit!

Jimmie is talking to all of you!

Happy Sunday everyone! 

My parakeet Jimmie is such a good talker!  

He has at least 8 full sentences he says clearly all day... everyday!

He has such a big personality but is so shy in front of the camera.  Fred​ stealthily got this video for you to enjoy. 

  It has a few clear words you can hear.

Meet Celie ~ The Seal Bummlie!


Happy Tuesday everyone!

I am excited to introduce my newest Bummlie for you to enjoy!



Bummlies are Dog Toys stuffed with LOVE ~ No Fluff!




Each Bummlie is one of a kind!

He or she comes to you with his or her very own name, personality & smile to share with you & your family on your exciting adventures together!

You may ask...
What are The Bummlies?

The Bummlies are my line of Stuffing Free Dog Toys for you to enjoy!

Each Bummlie sends the message of LOVE both from his front chest and his back "bum"! :)

Handmade of soft fleece, a solid piece of terry cloth stuffing, thread and a lot of LOVE... 

Each Bummlie is unique & the perfect buddy for both dogs and kids!

They are machine washable and if opened by your 4 footed kid, they will not leave stuffing everywhere since they are safely stuffed with a terry cloth towel section that is one solid, safe piece that makes your Bummlie even more huggable!

They are approximately 10" high from tip of ears to toes and 8 " across from paw to paw.

I happily cut, sew, hand embroider and stuff each doll for you to enjoy.

The Bummlies are having so much FUN with all of you that they just cannot contain their glee!

They are bursting at the seams with excitement, so R-Chee & I have built a special gallery where they can Show & Tell all of their stories with you!

It is called The Bummlie Gallery and it's new home is


The Bummlie Gallery is a storyboard of FUN from Bummlies who have been adopted by families all over the world!

They are reporting back with adventures filled withLOVE!

You can adopt your special Bummlie today in our Etsy shop... 


Please check out the new Bummlie Gallery and Pug Notes etsy shop often as they are both bursting at the seams with new Bummlies and photos everyday!

Thank you for always playing with us!

Freeform Crochet ~ Mushroom


Happy Tuesday everyone!

The Spring ahead daylight savings time change happened this weekend!

To celebrate the coming of Spring, I thought I would do a little freeform crochet and create something new.

I decided to make a little mushroom for my fiber art garden!




It was so FUN to see it pop to life!

I did not have a pattern. I just made it up as I went along.

I used my trusty E size crochet hook, a little polyfill and my favorite Amazing Yarn by Lion Brand.

I just love how it turned out!

It was so FUN to start and finish something in just one afternoon.

I will create more for my little garden to show you!

Have a super day!
