CJ Monthly Challenge

Lisa challenged our CJ group to use ten items from our stash on a project this month. My project was making 4th of July cards for the troops. The items I used from my stash are: 1. Cardstock, 2. Creative Cafe Glitter Glue, 3. Gold Spica Pen, 4. Sakura Gelly Roll Pen, 5. white pearl cotton, 6. Creative Imaginations paper, 7. Best Creation paper, 8. rhinestones, 9. Glue dots, 10. White grosgrain ribbon. I also used my Cricut and four different punches! I was making cards at a crop at Picture Me Perfect and I bought the buttons, metal letters, rub-on letters and rick rack while I was there. I got card ideas from the Hero Arts online gallery.

How can that be comfortable?

One of Tigger's favored spots. She squeezes herself between the nightstand and the wall. How can that be comfortable?

Okay, now imagine thousands of these cards full of buttons and you will get an idea of what I saw at my first ever button show! Vendors had buttons and other goodies for sale. There were containers full of "poke" buttons (you poke around for what you want!) and box after box of cards with buttons. They weren't selling them by the card either, you bought just a button or two off the card. I was totally overwhelmed and I realized that the buttons I have are the Walmart version! No comparison to the intricate, beautiful handpainted, handcarved, antique, French, glass.......buttons I saw on display.

Cat TV

We call the front window "cat tv" because it keeps them entertained watching squirrels, birds, other cats, the neighbors, passing cars....

Mancat Monday

As mentioned in a previous post, Copper has gotten
big enough that he needs to go on a diet. BUT he is also just a big boy. In the picture on the right, he is standing at a standard sized dining room table!

Mother's Day

For Mother's Day my kids came over and cooked dinner for me and then cleaned up after. We had a fun evening and a great meal of BBQ Chicken and Pork, garlic bread, roasted veggies and salad.
