Penny’s Tips Volume 125

Hi everyone! I am a little annoyed with my mom. She told me I was going to have my very own stand-in like real tv and movie stars have. Her name is Elvira and so far she is mostly under the bed in the spare room.Β  I guess she is tired from her long trip. Mom did see her come out for food, water and the litter box.

My tip for you today is about a free drawing class online available through the end of April. There are a whole bunch of classes, but the only important one is how to draw cats.Β  Here is mom’s work- unfortunately, her drawing skills are even worse than her photography skills.

The website is KarenaBend Sketchbook 2022- Click here.Β 

Scroll down to Day 9-Draw Cats 123…

And when you get to that, you can also sign up for a free class in painting cats in watercolors- not actually painting your cats, just painting cats on paper. πŸ™‚ Mom hasn’t done that one yet, but I will share her work when she does so we can all have a laugh.

Maybe my stand-in will be here next week.Β  I sure hope so because after 3 Tuesdays in a row, I need some time off.

We are joining ComedyΒ  ComedyΒ  Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop


  1. Drawing class sounds like fun, Penny! Your stand-in will probably take her own sweet time about it, but I’m sure she’ll be there for you eventually. XO

  2. We are sure Elvira will help you out soon. She has a really big adjustment to make. But we are so happy she is with your family where she will be loved and cared for. Tell Elvira we said hi, we used to visit her blog back when Mom actually let us visit blogs.

    You are doing brilliantly…so fresh, wonderful exressions on each kitty. You are an artist and I am NOT being “nice”….I am excited for you. PLEASE show more sketches. Wonderful that you are taking this class. Mama may do it too because frankly, I feel she needs to work more and get out of her sketch slump.

  4. I think your mom’s drawings are cute, Penny and I know, practice makes purrfect, so… We think Elvira will come out of her hiding place soon, One sheep follows another…in this case cat of course…MOL…Extra Happy PawkissesπŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

  5. It is nice that you will have a stand in. She has had a very long journey so needs a lot of rest. Maybe she will be ready for next week.

  6. Well Penny I think your new housemate Elvira will soon be happy to fill-in for you from time to time. I would think she’s exhausted from the trip and upheaval but being there in your home she will bounce back soon!! Cat drawing lessons sounds like a very cool thing…..good for your Mom!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. Mom Elen I have to tell you that I LOVE those drawings you did. Not just saying that either I mean it Several really tickled my funny bone. LOVED them. Be sure to save them because they will be excellent here on the blog when you make a place for them again.

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ You should do the class, it is only 30 minutes and a lot of fun. XO

  8. The local art institute offers watercolor classes, but they are during the workday!
    These classes are terrific; thank for showing them to us!
    Here’s hoping Elvira’s time UTB is short-lived.

  9. Penny always has such great tips.

    I can’t wait to see the new kitties down the road. I know they need time, but I know they have the best mom ever.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ellen. Scritches all around. β™₯

  13. Maybe Elvira will be out soon and you two can cook up some tortie fun! Speaking of fun, those are fun drawings!

    1. I don’t know how those 2 will be together – Penny doesn’t get along with very many cats. πŸ™‚ XO

  14. Penny, I am already reading that she is out from under the bed and getting pets. That is a great thing this soon! Ellen, I love the little faces of your cats that you drew Penny, great tip for your Mom!
