Custom Goody Plush

As you probably know by now, I love making custom items! The ones based on peoples pets are especially fun for me. This latest one was so much fun that I had to share him with you. His name is Goody, a beautiful mix of half boxer and half american staffordshire terrier. Goodys’ owner contacted me through my shop and asked me to make a custom plush of him. I had so much fun studying photos of him from her flickr pages! With the help of the photos I was able to build a pattern of him straight from his photos.

This Goody plush is being sent on his way to live with the real Goody today!

My plans for today include: another custom item and getting the house clean before my husbands birthday weekend. The custom I will be finishing today is an American red squirrel Feltidermy… Too fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Southwest Chicken Salad Sandwhich

What do you do with the leftovers from a beer can chicken?

The logical answer to me this morning was Southwest Chicken Salad for lunches.

Here is my recipe that I made up this morning…

1/2 cup leftover chicken, diced
1 Tbs. minced onion
2 Tbs. minced orange or red pepper
2 Tbs. canned corn with chiles, drained
4 Tbs. drained and rinsed black beans
3-4 Tbs. vegetarian mayo
1/2 tsp. chipotle powder
1/4 tsp. each of the following:
chili powder, cumin, garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together and spread on your favorite bread or roll. Enjoy!
This should make enough for a couple large sandwiches. If you had a whole cooked chicken, you could increase this to make enough for any weekend gathering.

I’ll leave you today with a photo of Bean from this weekend of chillin’ and grillin’. She loves to sit out in the yard!
