Hug Your Cat Day!

Hi everyone! Today is Hug Your Cat Day, I think that should be every day, but I think most cats would disagree. I am glad I joined this last year because I rarely get in photos so I am glad to have one of Lucy and I:hugLucy

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today with my mostly completed button art:

DSCF1488  Should I add buttons to fill in the entire picture or just keep a plain background? And, can anyone tell what the blue thing is? I made that on a blank note card.

I also wanted to tell you about the button artist I gave you a link to last week. She recently participated in the Sing for Hope project to help bring art to children in need. 25 artists are chosen to each decorate a donated piano and she did hers all in buttons. These pianos will be all around NYC in June, to see her design click here.

Thank you to all who joined in the Friendly Fill-Ins yesterday. I am enjoying getting to learn more about everyone. Phoebe will be here tomorrow with a sign-up list for those traveling shades.

    • Yes, a TARDIS 🙂 I knew you would know Billy. I bet your Mom could do better than me with the buttons. XO

  1. I love your button art! The cats are perfect. Although I’ve somehow never seen Dr. Who, I know enough about it to be fairly certain that the blue thing is the Tardis. I think the plain backgrounds are perfectly fine, as the white against the dark buttons looks so nice. Nevertheless, I would love to see you create one with the background filled in as well, to see what kind of variety can be created. I would love to see lots more of your button art, Ellen!

    • Thank you, I am glad you like my button art. I am going to do more and fill them in like the one I showed last week at the vet office. I am glad you could tell it was a TARDIS 🙂

  2. I had no idea what the ‘blue thing’ was till I read some of the comments! Your button art is fab! I think you should fill in the back ground with buttons!! I checked out the piano by Tracy Crane – so pretty! Mom is going to feature it on her art blog tomorrow! She’ll be linking back to you so we’ll let you know when it’s posted!! Pawkisses to Penny!!

  3. Love the photo with you and Lucy! What a blessing you have that picture! I also love your button art. That makes me think of my grandma who had jars of buttons.

  4. Nice to see you and Lucy. Happy Hugging!
    I think it would be cool if you filled in the background. Show us if you do, please.

  5. Nice huggy shot of you and Lucy………I like your button art – I know it would take a lot more time but I think it would be TOTALLY COOL to finish the rest of the “canvas” with buttons in some kind of background……grass and sun in the sky or blue sky with clouds……something colorful!!!! We love the blue Tardis too! Tee Hee

    Hugs, Sammy

  6. Great picture of you and Lucy. She looks like she is enjoying that hug. The cats around here do not allow hugs. Hope all of you have a great week end.
