Hotsy Totsy Tuesday!

Okay, well maybe it's not "hotsy, totsy" where you are but I'm at my mom's in Las Vegas and it's certainly plenty "hotsy, totsy" for me. Anything about 90 degrees is above my comfort zone and 100 certainly surpasses it! At least my furbabies have been blogging up a storm for me while I've been here at my mom's. I can only imagine what bad habits Daddy is teaching them! (or vice versa I suppose!)

My mom is also a beader so yesterday we did what beaders do, we spent a very long time in a bead store! They have huge bead stores here in Vegas and it was visually overwheming with thousands of bead strands hanging on all walls and tables and more tables of little bins filled with thousands of more beads. I took some pictures - right before one of the employees caught me and said "uhm, no, we do not allow pictures taken of our store!". So, shhh, don't tell!

I had a headache from optical overload but it was a lot of fun and we found some great beads that will be showing up in new creations very soon!

My mom also wanted me to post pictures of her dog, Samy. She even put his bandana on him for his pictures! Hopefully Isabella, Angel and Sadie won't mind sharing the spotlight for today!

I want to thank Twenty Pound Tabby and Advice On Assisted Living for giving me the I ♥ Your Blog award! It means so much to me to have readers enjoy my blog so receiving awards still make me jump with joy! Thank you both very much! I appreciate it more than I can say! I have recently passed this award on so at this time, I will not be announcing my nominees but will certainly pass it on in the future.

Looking forward to seeing your new creations. Oh, and tell Mom, beautiful pup. The bandana just added pimp to Samy's style!!!

Beading is a hobby I would love to pursue, but we have no nice stores in my area to buy the supplies. Too bad I have no plans to visit Vegas.

I love and hate bead shopping. I love it for obvious reasons and hate it because I never have enough money to shop everything I want.

I love going to bead stores too. They might cost a bit more, but at least you can REALLY see the color! I know I get overwhelmed at some places - that store looks overwhelming {:-o. Oh, and I like Samy's bandana - he's a cutie!

PurrPrints said...

what a cutie! (to the dog, not the bead store--lol--the bead store would probably give me a migraine with that many things to look at!)

Oooo - so many beads! I'm sooo jealous!

Season said...

That is definitely one big bead store! I can't wait to see your new creations! Samy is a cutie... my parents have a female dog (Crystal) that looks just like him.

I've been enjoying the blogs from your critters :)
