Everybody, meet Tegan (Tee-gan).Tegan is Pascal's sister. They are the same age. I've had Pascal for 3 months now, and Jessica got Tegan yesterday. Pascal is double Tegan's size. Tegan was being fed, but clearly not nearly enough! She's a vicious eater and there's no doubt she'll fatten right up!

Here you can see Tegan's tail was biten off just like Pascal's. She's also missing a foot and some other toes, but she's not going to let that stop her! She's as cute as a button. It's unfortunate that she was hatched into the conditions that she was, but we are all so greatful to have this beautiful girl now. As she grows the two orange strips down her back should continue to brighten!

 Josh and I went to the house of the lady Pascal came from to pick her up and I held her for at least 20 minutes while Josh and the lady talked about different things, but the whole time she was just calm and only jumped when Josh's voice got loud when he laughed or something. His voice must have heavy vibrations or something because our scorpion is the same was around him. Funny. Anyway, it was like Tegan knew this everything was going to be ok from now on because she was calm the entire time and I think she felt the love that just poured from Jessica when I put her in her new momma's hands. She got a good bath and a couple crickets and then Jess took her home and set everything up for her in her new home. I'm so excited to have a new "baby" in the family! Jessica is a great new bearded dragon mom and I can't wait to see Tegan catch up to Pascal and watch them grow up!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

So I've been working on a few things lately... A lady I babysit for is having a baby in April, and her shower is tomorrow so I've been rushing to get her present ready. I've made some ruffle butt onsies before, for another lady, and figured that'd I'd make some more for this present. I only had 3, which Im thankful for since that's all I had time for, but I also made a stuffed monster, and some adorable baby shoes. Here are the pictures Josh took of everything with his iPhone. The baby that's coming is the 4th with 2 older brothers an older sister, boy, girl, boy, girl. Oh, and those are shadows on the bottom of the onsies, I just noticed those weird looking spots...

Although I haven't made my second slipper yet, I made Josh a Conan shirt that he's been wanting, I think it turned out really nicely.

 Josh is happy so, so am I. The paint on the left is still wet, it dried evenly, don't worry.

I bout a TON of fabric, ribbon, lace, etc, from my Great Aunt who is selling all my Great Great Aunt's stuff. all for $50! Great deal! Here are some pictures of what I got...

Well, that's enough for now... I'll be back later to show you Josh's Sister, Jessica's, new baby bearded dragon!

So, I finally finished one slipper tonight! Yup, just one. It's mighty cute though! The tutorial was quite easy to follow, but ONE slipper, considering that Im a beginning sewer, took me 3 hours! Here's a picture Josh took on his iPhone of my finished dragon slipper on my foot.

What'd ya think??? Im pretty proud of it! Im thinking about adding tails, and hopefully I can get around to making the other one soon!

Blog fever.

Ok, let's face it, I totally suck at this whole blogging thing... My last post was what, 2 MONTHS ago?!?! Wow. Well, my problem is I am constantly blogging in my head, but never actually take the time to sit down and type it all out.

My Boyfriend, Josh, has recently started a new blog about our reptiles, and I'll probably chime in there every once in a while. Go check it out! It's Dieterle's Reptiles over at WordPress.

I've been working on some new crafts lately, and the newest one I've started are these adorable Dragon Slippers from made-by-rae. She said that, in theory, the slippers can be scaled bigger or smaller. I'm making them for me, women's size 7. I hope they turn out well! Rae's blog is full of adorable things for kids and babies plus other cute things like bags and hats! I love it.

Oh, by the way, meet Runder! An Electric Blue Wiliams Day Gecko, possibly the coolest looking gecko ever!
