Dog days... dog charms

The last few days have been devoted to making a pile of charms for a charity event.  The organization is called "Fences for Fido" and 25 charms depicting their dog hero, Chopper, are being sold at their gala this Saturday night. YIKES!
I always think, "No problem, I can whip those puppies (no pun intended) out in a jiffy", and I am always WRONG!  Invariably, there are snags and interruptions along the way and now I am frantically trying to copper-wrap them all and squeeze in soldering time between a bunch of pressing work commitments.
Wish me luck!


  1. GOOD LUCK!!! I know how that goes... when you say yes, you THINK you can handle it. And then... LIFE get's in the way! Cute charms.

  2. It will be worth it though! (Chopper is really cute!)
    I canned pickles last week. After they were all done I read "Do not use salad cucumbers or your pickles will not be crisp - use special pickling cucumbers." Well, guess who is going to have limp pickles this year . . .
    Love, Linda
