Our Rat

Here's a photo of our rat, Flash. He's really a gerbil (a nicer way of saying Desert Rat!!!). I call him Ratty or Ratboy. I find he looks like a chipmunk. He stinks, too.
(Edited to add: I Do like his little hands!)

So very cute! We used to have hamsters. These little critters really can produce very big odors for such tiny guys!

Doreen - we had a hamster - he was very cute - cuter than the rat IMO. However, he did not last very long; unfortunately while we were on vacation last summer, and my mom was on the watch, he passed. We called him Floofy, because he was so floofy! Floof was MUCH more disgusting than rat, but cuter!

Too cute! Does he bite? Ours were terrible biters and a little smelly.

Ratboy is adorable and his "hair color" is beautiful. Ours were grayish/brown and not friendly. Cuter than reptiles though!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!

The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
