I am the survivor of a brain aneursym rupture, 2 strokes, and 7 brain surgeries . I turned to my 'crafty side' as a sort-of therapy... over the years I've pursued this 'therapy' more and more and finally decided to make it 'official' by starting my own selling pages.
Handmade crocheted items (and a few other miscellaneous crafts thrown in). Designs are kept simple to let the colors - or stitch - do the talking. 100% of all sales proceeds are used to create items to donate to Renown Children's Hospital here in Reno, NV.
Slo-Dawg Specialties is run by Wilma - a Basset Hound who, after a short career and and over the road truck dog, retired. Pepper, the senior member of the group, is a German Shorthair - she's very enthusiastic about everything but, unfortunately, suffers from ADD and doesn't focus on any one thing for very long. Pebbles & Barney are Springer Spaniels - they 'supervise,' which...  Read More

Dan's Heart

A friend's daughter is going through some medical issues... she's just 22 and awaiting results of tests of whether she has cancer and a couple other issues.... anyway, even tho I've never met his daughter I created the afghan pictured for her...  he was blown away when I gave it to him to give to her (he actually thought I'd bought it - I explained that I'd made it)... yesterday, as he was driving us to Rick's nursing facility he told me that when he gave it to his daughter she cried!  She couldn't believe that someone she never met would give her such a gift!  
 
It brought back to me the reason why, quite a few years ago now, that I started 'Blanket Paradise' - to give handmade afghans, chemo caps and scarves to people at the local cancer center & hospital...  I'm thinking about redirecting my energies towards that goal again...

Yarn arrives today!

So excited!  My yarn order arrives today!  I feel like Winthrop in the Music Man (Ron Howard as a little tike - before Mayberry) and just know that I'm gonna start belting out The Wells Fargo Wagon song when the UPS truck hits the driveway - dogs howling along!  Not to worry - our UPS driver is used to it!  For those of you who don't know this song or movie I highly recommend that you watch it if only for this song - it puts to words & music that feeling you get when you are anxiously awaiting your crafting supplies!

Once the yarn arrives I can begin work on 4 custom order Awareness Scarves!  Can't wait - I've already got them designed in my head - all I need is the yarn!

My first blog...

So here I go... blogging.  Not sure what to blog about... of course there are lots of things that I could go on about but doubt very seriously that anyone (including me) would really be interested.  That said... away I go!

Given that this IS my first attempt I figure that saying a bit about me is probably appropriate (for those of you who have read my profile, please forgive the blatent plagerism of my profile info).
