I'm glad the postal service cares . . . . . . . it really makes me feel so much better!

I had it printed at Shutterfly, and got it framed as my Christmas present from Ted. We picked it up last night, and I was so happy with the way it turned out! Thank you, Sharon, for capturing this beauty!
Be sure to stop by her blog and discover the gorgeous part of the country where she lives. I hope someday to visit and see some of what she captures in person.

Of course, there is always good food whenever Doreen is cooking!
I couldn't believe there wasn't one person with eyes closed - a new record! What a great group of friends!

My Trekkin' for Ta-Tas teammates were as great as I expected - we had such a fun time, and I'm glad to have finally met these friends who I've known on-line for several years.
The Crew on the walk were so funny - most of the crossing guards were men, and they all dressed up in big bras and pink outfits!
After being home a few days, I got a terrible sinus and ear infection and spent most of the week sleeping while my hubby continued to take care of the cats! I'm still talking a little like Barry White, but I'm feeling better and trying to get caught up on all my Etsy shop orders and Christmas stuff.

I leave tomorrow for a week in Arizona. I've been training for months for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk, and it is this week! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I'll be trekkin' 60 miles with my Trekkin' for Ta-Tas teammates in Phoenix. The weather forecast looks fabulous, and I can't wait to join the thousands of other walkers for this awesome event.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me in this journey with your donations toward my goal (which I have met and exceeded), Etsy shop purchases, and for cheering me on. A special thanks to my loving coach, Ted, for walking with me and for taking care of the cats while I'm gone.
I look forward to sharing lots of pictures with you when I return! Keep me in your thoughts this weekend!

One lady who won two soaps decided to donate them to me for organizing the auction. And then the ladies who make the soaps decided to create my entire cat family as a thank you for holding the auction!
They arrived this weekend, and I was amazed at the wonderful portrayal of my sweet kitties. This first picture includes (from front, clockwise): Vivien, Violet, Newman, Gleek, and Samoa!

I've been a huge Shutterfly fan for many years. If you like to take a lot of photos from vacations, or other special events, you can quickly and easily create items like calendars, cards, canvas wall art, puzzles, and other great items!
I make several calendars each year as Christmas gifts. Once you enter in birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions, your list remains from year to year, and you can easily select which items you want included on the different calendars you create. Here was Ted's calendar from last year. Shutterfly is offering a new desk calendar this year that looks great!
Now, you're probably saying, I can get cards cheaper at the store, or I get my holiday cards half price at the end of the year. And exactly how many people remember those cards? Don't you prefer receiving cards that have photos? I know I do. Don't waste your money on cards that people are going to throw away. The only cards I keep are the ones with the pictures! Here is another sample of the many designs that you can select at Shutterfly. This was one of our Christmas cards.
The best part about Shutterfly are the discounts, free shipping offers, free photo offers, and other freebie codes they send you via email. Many of the calendars I've done are buy one, get one free, so you can't go wrong!
If you're really on the ball, you can select from the many Thanksgiving cards Shutterfly offers! Each design lets you know how many photos can be included.
So, what are you waiting for? The photos are already in your computer - just upload them to an album on Shutterfly's site, and let the creativity flow . . . . . .

When she passed away, her evil husband took all four of her cats to the humane society for a certain death as they were all older kitties. My parents and I rescued them - we found homes for two, Mom kept one, and I took Calvin. I definitely got the best deal! He was eleven when he came to live with us. I sure wish I had been fortunate to have him when he was younger. I can only imagine how adorable he was as a kitten because he was the most handsome mancat ever with eyes that made me melt!
Calvin never met a bed he didn't like, and he had so many different ones throughout the house. He got his car bed on his 16th birthday from a good Catster pal. He loved his wheels!

You wouldn't believe the nasty material they would use to stuff the cushion - some of it is like straw and then there is the old cotton fiberfil - nothing but sinus problems! So, off with the old - very easy to do - remove a few screws, take off some staples and get rid of the stuffing!
