Contest Winner, Easy to Make Cat Toy and Newtown, CT Booksale


Hi everyone- Monday again already! I am very excited today as I am off to the biggest book sale in my area- actually, it is an hour and a half away in Newtown, CT. My mom and I go every year, but we skipped last year as it seemed so sad after what happened at the school. On Wednesday, I am going to ROAR about a new shelter in memory of one of the children.

Monday is fun and games day and I have searched Pinterest for something easy and free to make for your kitty this week. I came up with this: http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/04/no-sew-socktopus.html . It is a simple octopus made out of an old sock and stuffed with polyfil ( or the other sock ­čÖé ). Mine didn’t come out as cute as the one on the link , but here is Spooky with it:

And the winner of the laser and the IKEA mice is——Oui Oui ( make sure you share with your siblings).┬áCongratulations and thanks to everyone who commented. I will be having another contest soon so please keep checking, or better yet, sign up to get the daily posts delivered to your email.

I am off to search for cat books, with about 120,000 books to choose from, I am sure I will find something.005Millie thinks I should wear these┬á today ­čÖé
