One Cool Cat

Tinsel received these awesome sunglasses and matching personalized visor in the mail from my folks, vacationing in Arizona.

Although it took dd and I quite some time to outfit her, once dressed she seemed rather resigned to her new look. In fact, one could say she was ...
sub - dude.

New domestic skills?

I was given a set of the new SEI stuff in order to make samples for the LSS where I teach. Being a huge SEI fan, this was right up my alley. Loved, loved, loved working with both Winnie's Walls and Paisley & Petals. But the very best part: the iron-ons! In the lower left corner of this layout, you can see the "So Very Happy" iron-on. I'm sure you'll find this hard to believe, but I did not actually sew across the top of the layout. These, too, are IRON-ONS!

The iron-ons apply quite easily, and I love the dimension they add. Their velvet texture reminds me of those books I had as a child (and still own, of course) with fuzzy animals. I'm not one to get overly excited about products other than cardstock, so this is big news for me! And a great use for my iron. Maybe it could count as a domestic skill?

Newsflash! Blog goes public!

Ok, maybe public is not the right word, since I may be the only one to read it. What was holding up the launch, you ask? I'll tell you....finding a great blog name. I really like this one, but it may change at some point in the future.

So what are my goals with this blog? Hmmm....
  • To discuss various attributes of both cats and cardstock
  • To write more, especially stuff that could be used for my scrapbooks
  • To inspire myself and any wayward soul who might happen to pass this way
  • To avoid political ramblings, if at all possible
  • To learn how to add cool features to my blog, thus improving my technical skills
  • To look really hip by having a blog!

...With perhaps more goals to be added as I progress!
