Happy Monday everyone! Monday is fun and games day and we also have a black cat themed giveaway. I love to decorate for Halloween and my 4 black cats are the best decorations- year round.
I bought a kit at Michael’s to make a black cat out of beads that melt. Flat Scout Charles helped me when he was staying with us.It looked so simple, you follow the diagram and place the beads on the orange board. Then you cover it with the special paper that came in the kit and run your iron over it. The beads melt together and you have a cat- NOT! As you can see, many of the pieces didn’t melt and fell apart. Luckily, I know someone who is a pro at this and she has an Etsy store. Billy the Time Cat’s Mom makes all kinds of items from magnets to coasters and Billy recently modeled for some. You can check it out at the link:TCA shop . Billy’s Mom uses the money she earns with the store to pay for his insulin.
Now for the giveaway- Spooky is modeling with the loot.
A catnip mat ( black cat print on purple) , black cat socks, a mini book with a black cat, a cookie cutter , a black cat pin and your very own bead kit to make a black cat. I will also include some crocheted catnip toys. Just comment today through Wednesday – winner will be announced Thursday. Comment every day for more chances. Good luck!
Sometimes these crafty things are harder than they look!
They sure are 🙂
It’s funny how those things are never as easy as they look, right? 🙂
Very true 🙂
A black cat giveaway? How cool!
Black cat themed- no real cats 🙂
The melted beads sound like a good idea, but not in practice.
They looked so easy, but were not 🙁
That’s pretty darn black cat cool!
Thank you 🙂
Oh my i hate when a crafty idea goes astray..i have had a few in my time..my last crafty idea of a photo shoot for my cards ended with me in hospital hahaahah..but like you the show goes on sweetie 🙂 i love me a black cat..Cleo is our 5th and they are so lovely..glad Flat Scout Charles was there to help..hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx
Flat Scout Charles learned some very bad words that day 🙂 I am glad I didn’t end up in the hospital like you did- that was awful. We have 4 black cats, but I love all cats and I am sure you do too 🙂 XO
Well, the head kind of came out OK….
Wow that’s a generous haul of cool stuff. We love Halloween!
Yes, just the head, I am going to put a magnet on the back. I am curious to see if whoever wins the other kit has better luck than I did. XO
well that’s a bummer that it didn’t work out, but I bet you had fun trying. And how nice of you to promote your friend’s etsy store.
It was fun and now I know it is easier to buy them made 🙂 I hope you check out the store, there are a lot of great items.
Sometimes those crafty projects don’t work out the way they are supposed to, but it looks like it was fun anyway 🙂
I will definitely go check out the Etsy store – what a great way to help pay for her kitty’s insulin!
And this is a fantastic giveaway – we hope we win!
Thank you for checking out the store 🙂 And good luck in the giveaway.

NO, I am the faulty one 🙂 Spooky says hi. 🙂
Spooky, you handsome boy do I see the hint of a white star on your beautiful chest?
Spooky is embarrassed, he is getting some white spots with age.
What a great giveaway!
Thank you- good luck 🙂
That is a great idea, but our Mom would mess it up something awful, so please don’t put us in the drawing. WE can’t wait to see what someone else does. You all have a wonderful day.
Thank you- hope you have a great day too 🙂
wow guys and gals your Mom is super talented!
Thank you Miss Ellen for putting my moms shop in the spotlight.
Those beads can be nasty rascals, if you glue them to hot they melt to much, to cold they don’t melt. If you push to hard with the iron, you flatten them up like the flat scouts. It’s a trick.
Now a black cat give away sounds like fun!
Billy The Time Cat
Thank you Billy 🙂 The orange thing I placed them on had some spaces larger than others so the beads were too far apart to melt. XO
Great prizes! I love cats! I have a black cat with white spots.
Thank you 🙂 Good luck in the giveaway- comment tomorrow for another chance 🙂

“Crafty” stuff can be pretty tricky sometimes!
Oh I would love to win this prize! Purple is my favorite color. ~Ernie
Good luck Ernie 🙂
Mum says that she used to be pretty crafty years ago!!!! For the bicentennial she made my hubrother’s costume for the school play and also made his Halloween costumes!!! She also used to knit a lot — she says that because of health problems (read lazy) she has not been doing much of anything. She promises that if she should be lucky enuf to win, she will be crafty. If you believe that I have some oceanfront property in Tucson to sell you. BOL BOL BOL
Be nice to your Mom, she sounds like a great Mom. I am learning to knit and I love to crochet.
Whoa! What a pawsome giveaway! TW thought that mat was a pair of men’s shorts at first so don’t feel bad about thinking the cereal was a pillow. MOL!
I guess TW and I both need eye exams 🙂
A black cat giveaway sounds cool ! Purrs
Thank you 🙂
Our Mama would make a mess of those beads…they would be all over the place in seconds flat! :p We have one black cat and one black and white cat over here who make for very nice Halloween decorations 🙂

We love black cats. That giveaway is definitely a sweet treat! ☺
