Coming back from a crash landing

I don't want to hit at the bottom again!

Here we go

Slow down!

 Minerva puppy is growing up!

and so is Esme :)  She really enjoyed the cupcake cones - they turned out great!

I also updated my medicine bag (dream bag) last night for the first time in a while.  While the snow was falling outside it seemed to be the right time.  I used some mica, turquoise and shells and repaired some of what was already in there and had broken a bit on the shells over the years.  I still am thinking about adding some malachite, as well...
