Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. We also want to wish Athena’s mum a very Happy Birthday today!

I used Lunapic to cartoonize the photo of Penny and Millie in their boxes. I wanted a thought bubble over Penny’s Head, but this is the best I could do.

 

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge. Noel is posing with our G, a ghost. I tried to put a black frame around it and ended up with this.

Here are my thankfuls-

  1. We had a wonderful Easter.
  2. Enough leftovers for most of the week, and I even sent everyone home with some too.
  3. The decadent pie my niece made with a chocolate graham crust and chocolate chip cookie dough inside ( not actual dough, but tasty) topped with whipped cream and drizzed with chocolate syrup.
  4. Thankful our church does food blessing for Easter, here is a photo of some of the beautiful baskets people make. Ours is not included, we keep everything wrapped because we are germphobes.

5, Another vet free week.

6.The Great One usually teases me when I want a kiss goodbye, but today she came right over for a kiss.

7. A surprise package in the mail with my favorite candy 🙂

8. I am thankful that I am more laid back than I used to be. My niece was so worried about The Great One breaking something and I just said, “she’d be doing me a favor, I have too many things anyway.” I remember crying over things my niece used to break like ears off of rabbit statues.

9. We got an inch of snow today- and it melted by the end of the day.

10.Hubby bought me a pineapple, I know that sounds odd, but I have been saying I wanted to get one and haven’t so when he went to get cat litter, he also got me a pineapple which was thoughtful.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone. Before we get started, we want to say goodbye to Mr. Buttons of Timmy the Tomcat’s family. He was only 7, but lost a battle with kidney disease. Please visit his family, if you haven’t already.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hops.

  For my art, I used Lunapic-cartoon and black and white effects on Emmy’s shopping cart photo.

Here are my thankfuls-

1. Someone calling me Miss instead of the dreadful Ma’am.
2. My great-niece’s growing vocabulary, she told my mom and I to calm down the other day 🙂
3. Nice and Easy hair color- why pay for a full color every 6 weeks when I can spend $6 on this?
4. Pedicure with my mom.
5. Chinese food lunch with my mom after the pedicures- even if we looked odd in flip flops when it was only 30 degrees.
6. Breakfast with a friend.
7. A bargain- found 2 long sleeved v-necks for only $3/each.
8. Joanie sleeps between us every night, not the whole night, but she is always there in the morning.
9. The Babies R Us closest to me is closing , I am not happy they filed bankruptcy, but I am sick of people registering there for baby showers when they are so expensive.
10. A warm home, it sure has been a cold winter.

 

 

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Catruday Art Blog Hop. I started taking photos for our Christmas card yesterday and this is one of our bloopers. I used Lunapic to add a snowflake border.

I am also joining the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop.

  1. Sammy’s negative heartworm antigen test.
  2. Good kitties that let me dress them for photos.
  3. Only getting one scratch from KaTwo while taking photos for the Christmas card.
  4. A husband that brings me coffee in the morning and makes me tea at night.
  5. My hubby and I got to have lunch with his sister this week.
  6. Lunch with my mom and the great one.
  7. Blueberry pancakes at my favorite diner with my mom.
  8. Almost done Christmas shopping.
  9. Parchment paper, before I discovered it, I always burned my cookies.
  10. I won Jackson Galaxy’s new book from Caren and Cody’s blog. I will review it soon.

Clearly I did a lot of eating this week ( #’s 5-7), but it was more about the people than the food.

Hi everyone! Phoebe thanks you all for the Gotcha Day wishes yesterday. We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. I used Lunapic’s VanGogh effect on Phoebe’s photo to create this work of art.

  1. I am thankful for the past 14 years with sweet Phoebe, she is truly the sweetest.
  2. I found big containers of Party Mix on clearance for $3.99 ( they are good until 2018).
  3. For calming collars- without them My Sammy would go after poor Brody constantly.
  4. The first blueberries of the season from the garden.
  5. The weather cooled off today, the high was only 64 degrees- wonderful 🙂
  6. I got to see my great-niece 3 days this week.

#JHC Halloween Challenge

Hi everyone! Today we are joining a new challenge for October- JNW’s Halloween Challenge. I love Halloween, I started decorating yesterday, it usually takes several days.

Today’s word is pumpkin.

NOEL This photo is a few years old, but I think Noel looks great with this pumpkin.

imageedit_4_5027970425 For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I used Lunapic to edit a recent photo of Noel. I cropped it to an oval shape and used the cartoon effect. I think it makes the checkered chair look like city lights in buildings behind Noel.

Phoebe will be starting a giveaway tomorrow.

Hopping Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone! Time to get hopping. For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop we went to LunaPic. I wanted to make a coloring page being that adult coloring is so popular. I got 2 cat coloring books for Christmas and I am enjoying coloring before I go to bed. It is very relaxing, only problem is now I haven’t been crocheting.

The coloring effect didn’t work so Phoebe decided to make herself into a $10 bill for Grammie. As you know, she loves her very much.
