Week 5 - #100daysofuseitupkelly

Week 5 for my #100daysofuseitupkelly 100 Day Project!  This week, I've started rotating between my jewelry bench and my book work table and art journaling spot. I've often heard that the more you work at your creative practice, the more your ideas start to flow, and I'm definitely feeling that flow!

Best Shot Monday: More Manger!

My daughter and I spent some more time with Manger this past week. He's finally starting to feel more comfortable and realizing that we humans can be great!  I captured this cute series of burst shots. Adopt a shelter pet for love like this! Manger is available for adoption from the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center.

Week 4 - #100daysofuseitupkelly

Week 4 for my #100daysofuseitupkelly 100 Day Project!  This week I completed three books.  The colorful French link stitch book was part of our Handmade Book Club. And I love my Bit O Honey book. I polished off that box and inspiration struck! I also completed some more fun tags, a couple journal pages and a pair of earrings which I've since sent to a friend making masks for a trade.  Hope you are doing well with all that is going on in our world this week.  You can see all my 100 Day Project posts for this year on my Instagram account here, and you can learn more about the 100 Day Project here!

Best Shot Monday: Meet Manger

Manger_A187633

Meet Manger. This sweet fella really captured my heart this past week. He came into the shelter as an owner surrender, and he's pretty beat up. He's super shy and timid at this point, so I just sat in his kennel with him for a while to win his trust. After about 20 minutes of sitting with him, much of it with his head tucked in my arm between gently taking treats from me, he agreed to come out with me. He is such a sweet love and will need a patient adopter to work slowly with him to help him learn how much we humans can love him. He's available for adoption through the City of Tallahassee - Animal Service Center. The shelter is currently open for adoptions by appointment. ⁣

There are so many homeless animals out there that need families. Next time you are considering adding a new furry friend, please consider visiting your local animal shelter instead of buying a pet from a pet store or a breeder. Rescued animals know they've been rescued, and they'll return the love tenfold. Support your local animal shelter! Volunteer. Adopt. Foster. Educate. Donate...⁣

Best Shot Monday: Meet Grisham

Grisham_A187565

Meet Grisham. Grisham is the type of dog that so often gets overlooked in a shelter. He's big and black, and he's a little hyper in his kennel. But this guy really is pretty awesome. Just look at that face!!! Once we got him out of his kennel, he was actually pretty good on his leash and settled right down. He loves to play fetch and he takes treats very gently. The cutest thing is that he prances like a deer when he runs! So cute! Grisham is available for adoption at the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center. Our shelter is slowly opening back up to full business capacity!

Week 3 - #100daysofuseitupkelly

Week 3 of my #100daysofuseitupkelly 100 Day Project started a hodgepodge. This week I completed some art journal spreads, some tags, and a fun little book. I also shared some bracelets my daughter made to help me "use it up, Kelly!"  You can see all my 100 Day Project posts for this year on my Instagram account here, and you can learn more about the 100 Day Project here!

Best Shot Monday: Ozzy

Ozzy-2

I hope you are doing well in these super trying times! Around here, we are grateful we're able to get into the shelter to volunteer. It brings at least that little bit of normalcy to our week. The shelter has done a great job managing all this with the volunteers in a very safe way ... we are limited in the number of volunteers allowed per skill level per shift and assigned to a "team" so that we are only interacting with the same group of people, and even at that, keeping our social distancing and wearing masks when around others. This past week started the temperature taking and a list of questions before we could begin our shift, so even more precautions in place.

Ozzy here is one of the adorable new faces we got to meet this week. Doesn't he have the sweetest face? And such gorgeous eyes. His markings are really unique as well and one of them forms a sweet little heart on his side. So cute! He's available for adoption at the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center. They are doing adoptions by appointment! Thanks for stopping in today!
