Fixin' Pixie's Mischief
On Monday's post, I showed you the mischief my friend's pup, Pixie, had gotten up to, tearing mini angel Rio limb from limb.

It's not really that hard. (Way easier than making it in the first place!) Basically, you just need a foam block to work on:
...And a special barbed needle for felting (if you click to enlarge you might be able to see the barbs):

A Passel o' PicMonkey Pics
Wednesday, I told you of my love for PicMonkey and posted a ton of photo-fun.
Terry, my sis - who does not blog so I have no linkage for her - asked, "Can you use it for just regular photo editing (cropping, sharpening, etc.)?" And Jan of Wag 'N Woof Pets said "...it does sound like it will do everything photo software does? You can save the things you make to your computer, right?"
Yes, it does all the usual editing type stuff. And, yes, when you're done, you save the edited photo on your own computer. I can't really say if it does everything photo software does, as I've never used actual software before. One thing you can't do is cut an image out of one photo (like your dog's head) and overlay it on another (like on the cover of my book). If I want to do something like that, I use "Paint" and then if I want to mess with the image some more, I open it in PicMonkey.
On Facebook, my friend noted my complaint about not being able to easily make the text color match the frame color. Thanks to her comment and me messing with it and then emailing PicMonkey, well... I found out it was operator error on my part. You CAN just input the color code when you get to the text input section. So, now my text will match my frame. :)
My Pawsitively Pets left a comment explaining how I can get my frames/text to match my blog theme colors exactly. I'm going to have to read it another 7 or 8 times but I think I can manage that!
A Car for my Canine
Yesterday, I asked for car-buying advice and there were lots of helpful comments. The Toyota RAV4 seemed a popular choice, and since we've had good luck with 3 Toyotas in the past, we'll definitely check that out. We have lots of research to do! It might be a little while, but when we decide I'll let you know!
