Mindi is off this week. I am pleased to announce, due to popularity, and with a bit of coaxing with treats, she (Mindi) has accepted responsibilities here at Two Dresses to assist me as a part-time blogger, volunteering for literally the price of a small piece of bacon. Now, it`s my job to bring some home!
This week I have had to pinch myself a couple of times to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I've always subscribed to the idea that if something is too good to be true, then...well, you know the rest. I also have a tendency to hesitate announcing anything until it is 'signed, sealed and delivered.' But now the 'cat is in the bag' - I'm delighted, proud, pumped and overall giddy to share my news...

Thanks for visiting and also for your encouragement in the form of comments to keep me blogging for the past six years!
Mom just asked me to publish a quick post to let you know she's been busy taking photos of me and Buddha but will be back sometime soon! We're hoping the snow will all be gone on Sunday. I don't like "going" in the snow - it's so cold and even colder now with my new haircut.
Happy Weekend Blogland!
Oh, I almost forgot, besides the photos, she also made this box last weekend. It took her for-EVER! It's made out of Nepalese handmade Lotka papers, layers of Craft Attitude , the curio feet come from Tim Holtz's Ideology line and the images from Iktupilli. She called it "Indie-Ah".
