More Snow, Cats, Challenges and Set Up for Pictures

Last week we had more snow fall - Purdue University actually closed down on Wednesday.  That morning I got up at 5:20 to start shoveling - it was deep!  We got the text a little after 5:30 that Purdue was closed until 1:00pm - needless to say I stopped shoveling and went back to bed :)  I got up around 10:00 am and talked with mom for a bit and then started shoveling again around 11:00am.  Got another text around 11:20 stating that Purdue was officially closed.  I went ahead and decided to stay out and finish shoveling - as it was still snowing (I AM SICK OF SNOW!!!).

After shoveling, went inside to take a shower to warm up - mom and I spent the whole time on the couch reading.  It was a really relaxing day for us - plus we had fun watching the fur babies as they tried to capture the snow.

Zola must have really wanted that snowflake!

Thursday it was back to work and plus mom had to take Zola back to the vet for another surgery.  This time they removed four of her teeth.  This is her zonked out on mom.  This is about the only time she sits on either one of us - when she is on drugs :)

She was feeling better Saturday night - she was having a lot of fun with a box that mom unpacked.  That is her with the glowing eyes.

Now - I did do some stuff that was jewelry related this past weekend.

I signed mom and I up for the 3rd Annual Challenge of Music. Last year we did the challenge of music about me, so this year I thought we would create something about mom.  Mom has already come up with a design idea - just need to saw it out and enamel it and then assemble the piece.  I think that is the fastest we (I mean mom) has come up with an idea for a challenge piece.  I am really looking forward to this challenge and posting what we have created!

Yesterday morning I was up at 4am to sign mom and myself up for the 8th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party (I was up already feeding the cats).  Mom and I always look forward to the Bead Soup Blog Party and we are excited to see who Lori pairs up with this time around.  If you want to see what we have created in the past click on the Challenges tab.

Sunday was picture taking day - this time of jewelry.  I almost have all the pictures taken of the jewelry we want to post on Etsy.  I have also started using new props for the picture taking.  I can't wait to see how the pictures turned out.  Tonight is the editing, resizing and posting of pictures on Etsy.  Not sure how much I will get done but I do know I want to post two new pendants at least.

This week needs to be a sawing week also - I need to have pieces to enamel this weekend.  So will be sharing those pics throughout the week on our Instagram.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive week!
