Just wanted to wish a very happy birthday to a special lady the cardi crew’s mom! It was amazing getting to meet you after moving up here (and stalking your blog for over a year xD) and then finding a friend in you as well. Hope you and the pups are having a wonderful day <3
I love Simon, love his colouring, his goofy smile. I love Simon. I think Simon is probably the first Corgi I became enamoured with (besides Sawyer, of course) I always love when my dash gets filled with Simon photos.
Day 4: The Corgi You Always Wanted This was hard for me, because I didn’t know corgis existed until I was studying abroad and my husband (boyfriend at the time) said, we have a corgi! But now, I can’t imagine my life pre-corgi. I know that of The Gang, Simon is the over-all favorite. But hot damn do I love Caleb. I almost lost it when I saw the puppies a couple of weeks ago. If we had the house and yard for a puppy I would have paid any person any amount of money for one of those Caleb puppies. He is beautiful and, from what his mama posts, one of the best corgis you can ask for.
These were both actually done before Christmas, I’ve just been Super Failpony and haven’t gotten them properly photographed or mailed yet. Because I’m failing at life right now.
ANYWAYS. These are just some super-fast photos…better ones soon, and then when I have the funds to cover S&H, they’ll be mailed off!!!
The merle Cardigan Corgi is Tempi, for Korat!! She’s made of a combination of grey fleece and white/black felt.
The Fallow deer doe is Kipcha, for…well…Kipcha!!! She’s made of a brown faux-suede/moleskin kind of material and white fleece. Both shades of brown are the same material…the lighter shade is the “inside.” However, I felt that the color nuances warranted using both sides, and I feel like I was right!!!
Both have hand-sewn eyes; a combination of felt and poorly-executed faux-embroidery. Their markings (the black blotches on the merle and the white spots on the doe) are not drawn on, they’re sewn and/or glued material.
My favorite thing about Tempi the merle pup is her markings; they are as close to accurate as I could get, which makes me proud! My least favorite thing about her is that I was running out of white felt and had to piecemeal her head/neck together, so she looks a little…….frankensteiny there.
My favorite thing about the stuffed Kipcha is her head and ears. Seriously, so cute!!! My least favorite thing about her is that she was intended to be a standing toy, and her legs just splay right out. I should have added some wire armature or used felt instead of fleece.
Most of you may (or may not) know Sawyer’s internet corgi friend Ed had to have emergency surgery due to a ruptured bladder. This is an extremely expensive fix. And Ed’s corgi momma is calling out for help in anyway possible.
I wanted to come up with a creative way to encourage people to donate, and here is my proposal:
If anyone donates at least 20 dollars, let me know and I will send you a 5x7 print of Sawyer (paw signed as well). Not only that, but Emma and Nicole have also said they would join in as well. So if you’d rather an Emma print, that works too. These’s prints will be Limited Edition, so once they run out they will never be printed again.
I’d also like to put out a call to any other Corgiparents who’d like to donate a print! iPhone photos won’t work, if the photo is from a DSLR the resolution needs to be 300 dpi.
Once we’ve gotten a few other Corgi’s involved I will post the photos that are available. At that point all you have to do is email (firstname.lastname@example.org) a screen shot of your donation confirmation.
More out takes of yesterday’s adventure. …With more Tess overpowering Story action haha. Look how stoic her dogs are in comparison to mine though?! He’s got full on derp face in every shot (with the exception of the one where his face is just being pushed into the ground instead).
