Good Luck Guinea Pig Food

I found a ladybug while washing some cilantro and parsley. This is the second time there's been an interloper in my piggies' greens. Again, I'm glad I found it before it got rinsed down the drain and had to face the garbage disposal.

Ladybugs are considered good luck by many different cultures around the world. In China in particular it's considered good luck to find a ladybug in the house. I hope the good fortune this little buggy had in being discovered and saved from a nasty fate will give me a nice little bit of good fortune as well.

Sunny Springtime Plushies

Spring is upon us... or should be, anyways. Most of us seem to be having rather cold and/or snowy weather than what's typical for this time of the year. The spring flowers are valiantly pushing through, reminding us that we'll be enjoying springtime before we know it.

Here are some bright, sunny guinea pig plushies to help usher in warmer days.

Now available in both my Etsy Shop and my Artfire Shop.

Custom Plushie Update 2011 - Part 2

Here's another installment of custom plushie montages. Lots of peegs, some rats, and even a mouse.

I've been so busy lately with work, which is a good thing. Sadly, I lost my guinea pig Miso recently. All I have left now is his little sister Pocky and his cage neighbor Archie. We've begun spoiling them rotten with big cages, and accessories. I hope they will be with us for many years to come.
