Fun Happenings & News!

The first bit of great news is that Melanie's Merino Wool Glove Dog was chosen to be in an Etsy Treasury!

How fun is that? I think it looks wonderful right in the center! I am so excited for her!

The second wonderful thing is that my blind doodles were featured on one of my favorite blogs, Dog Art Today! I feel so honored!





I also found out that the Dogs Rule Project I collaborated in last year is going to be in the June issue of Somerset Studio Magazine! I will give you all the details as they unfold in the coming weeks.

and I have finally done something I have been wanting to do for a long time... Create a Pug Notes Press page. :)

I have wanted to do it for awhile, but I finally felt like I have enough links to post now. I am excited to see what else unfolds so that I may add it to the list. :)


Happy Friday everyone!

Thanks for sharing in my fun news today!

What neat things are happening in your world? I would love to hear all about it!

And happy Friday to you. Pokey and Tacobelle missed you all at the 5 part "blog party" on March 8. Tweedles and Nancy & the fatties came by, but we missed you. Well the doors are still open so drop by and bring home some smiles. The coffee's on. And, Melissa, Emmitt..did you hear about Sheila and Carrie's project, "Artists for Animals"? It's super.

That is excellent news!
We're expecting a new dog bed today. And all day Saturday I'm going to be scrapping. I'll post some photos of my fav. layouts I do on Monday, so be sure to stop by and check em out. Next week I have to take a week off work without pay (company's way to save money). I've got lot's of fun stuff planned, I'm really excited.

A press page! How cool Melissa! *flashbulbs going off and pupparazzi everywhere...* I think you should do a press page for EmmyPants! "Emmitt the Pug, as seen on the cover of Bark Magazine, as seen on howlywood boulevard having kibble with Frank from Men in Black..." The puggy possibilities are endless...

Ruth Welter said...

Melissa, many congratulations on getting into that wonderful magazine...you so deserve it. Please keep us updated on all the details as the become available.

Rachel said...

Hey Melissa - you were the fourth person to comment, but the third person (Tweedles) can't play right now, so if you want to participate in "pay it forward" you can, just let me know with a comment or email to projectdogway@yahoo.com. If you can't right now, that's fine too - but I thought I'd let you know.
Have a great Sunday!

Maggie Weakley said...

I posted some of my scrapbook pages. Also, I saw on the http://glummypuddle.blogspot.com/ one of your pug collages as an ornament. I didn't see anything like it on you Etsy shop or pugnotes.com, how do I get one? I love it.

James Parker said...

Hola, Melissa and Emmitt! This is Pokey...my masterbuddy, Stinkyfeet, wrote a poem about Tweedles and you and Nancy on Every Photo Tells A Story, March 16. It's kinda neat.
