We went over to Brandt and Kim's barn to see the horses, dogs and cats. The one black and white horse was pretty nutty and tried to munch on Clayton's hat every time he walked by. The last picture is an extra I took when Clayton was chowing down on a huge apple. He almost ate the whole thing.
Clayton and I went to NYS for Thanksgiving. We visited the Burnett Park Zoo for the first time with my mom. It's pretty pathetic that I had never been there considering I grew up in the Syracuse area. Anyway, the animals were all out and I especially loved the cats! It was a chilly day, but the lack of leaves on the trees helped us see the animals better, I think. I wish the photos were better because the tiger and the lion were a foot away from us.

I've been busy lately, working on crafts for my show and for relatives. I saw a great crafter at my last show who was doing recycled jeans bibs, so I took it my own direction. I got some jean material at the thrift store and used my thrift store buttons, too. The iron on transfers are already coming off with one washing, so I am pretty bummed and wonder if I should just remove them or cover them with something else. The plastic pocket at the bottom of most of them was my idea because Clayton's cousins, Olivia and Drake need the catch-all. (Esp., Olivia, who likes to get every morsel)
I have a big selection of hats in the works, maybe 3 more purses and 4 more puppets to make. I have ring bases to make fused glass rings, too.
