Fritz is my name; Destruction is my game

I have quite a few cat loving friends and they share pictures with me every so often through email. When I received this email, I knew I had to share it with my readers. Her subject line cracked me up!! R.C.’s email is below. We know all too well how they can be such a terror, but we still love them so! Check out his attempt at the innocent facial expression. Ha! We know better.

R.C.’s quote:
* “Fritz is my name; destruction is my game. Can you believe this little guy has chewed through the wire to the base of one of our portable phones rendering it unusable, and he also managed to unplug the DVD player in the master bedroom (which will be difficult to plug back in because the outlet is behind our armoire). He's a terror!! . . . but a sweet one. “ *
Something to make you smile today. Thanks R.C. for sharing your sweet baby and humor!

Kitty Bears

Time for some kitty pics. I haven’t shown off my most precious angel, Zenia. She is my “Velcro kitty” because she always has to be where I am. If Mike gets home before me and feeds the babies, Zenia refuses to eat until Mommy is home. It’s so sweet. She gets away with murder I tell you! If she isn’t hogging my pillow, she is in my “teddy bear” nook with her paw draped over my hand or arm to show the other kitties that she owns me. See the picture Mike snapped while I was sleeping. : - )

These pictures were taken at the beginning of the year when I was on bed rest for a week. I was propped up on pillows and kitties were faithfully by my side. Zenia is sleeping on my chest and Tonka crawled up in my “teddy bear” nook. We refer to them as “kitty bear” when they decide to occupy that space. The little love bug is really good at that crawling up there. Zenia is light enough (6 pounds) that I can sleep with her on my chest without being disturbed.

I would love to hear stories about the nicknames you have for your little furry angels!! Feel free to share. Have a beautiful day!

I Ruff U

This week has flown by. Have had lots of fun making cards and working on jewelry orders. I'm gearing up for some more card classes. My first one went so well, the ladies scheduled another one. I'm so flattered! I love sharing this art form. I have another card that can be swapped out with one of the card packs available. The sweet puppy on the card is stamped and then I colored him in with colored pencils. For a touch of whimsy, I embossed the red paper with little paw prints. This card is available for those wishing to donate to animal shelters by purchasing a set of my hand made cards. I will be back this weekend with some more cards.
