The "Birdies" and "Dollies" Conspired To Have Their Way



I should have known better than to ever let the "dollies" mingle with the trio of "birdies" I was making for my Artful Gathering "Briley The Birdie" class with Colleen Moody. The "dollies" convinced the "birdies" they should be different than "Briley."

So, despite my best efforts to get them to conform my trio of "birdies" decided to be rebellious and be the class radicals. They decided they didn't want to be cream colored. They  wanted to be sponge painted. They insisted on it and then they had all the "dollies" urge me to sponge paint them.

There were just too many "dollies" clamoring for this that I had to acquiesce. Now I know you all know I hate to give in to the "dollies" demands but with the trio of "birdies" and all the "dollies" clamoring I was sorely outnumbered.


I thought if I gave in to the trio of "birdies" on this they'd calm down and let me create them the way I wanted to. Au contraire!  Each one had already developed a personality of their own and therefore a style they thought was best for them. Who was I to argue? I was just their creator. So, once again, I acquiesced.

One thought she was a Queen and wanted to be treated like one. I named her Queen Annabell but I refused to bow and curtsy to her.

A New Baby Girl Alpaca Cousin Named Dahlia


The "dollies" have been jumping up and down with joy the last few days.  The reason?  Well, they have a new baby girl alpaca cousin named "Dahlia."  And, she couldn't be more adorable.

Roxy and her new baby girl - Dahlia.

How adorable is she?  Beautiful Dahlia.

Dahlia was born at Rock Garden Alpacas the afternoon of June 12th. By the evening she was out running in the fields.

Of course, all the "dollies" want to go visit their new alpaca cousin. With 1,796 of them that isn't going to happen any time soon.  So, of course, they're already bugging me about Dahlia's Alpacas Rock products.  I'm ignoring the"dollies" for now which is never a good idea, but she and her Mom, Roxy, are on the "to do" list.  So, stay tuned.
