    Ann, I got you added. I went to look at your gallery. Awesome art. I saw your leaves from 2016, Wolf moon is hosting a leaf shaped swap in the open forum. If you or anyone wants to check it out. But great leaves, Ann.

    Oh my goodness, bastcrystal. I'm so sorry. That is just heartbreaking. It's hard enough to deal with when we lose a kitty, but to have no warning must be even tougher. Try to stay positive and focus on all your good memories. *Hugs*
    If I comment on your stuff it's a sure sign I'd love to trade!

    @bastcrystal - so sorry! How awful!

    Okay, hi. So I'm a mad swapper over at Swapbot. So much so that I need other outlets.

    Here's the thing. I'm not a cat fan. (stop punching me and listen!)

    Cats are deadly to me. I am so allergic to them that my throat will swell closed and I will literally die. So I DO NOT go around cats.

    But, from a distance, I do love the sassy attitude of cats. Plus, I just ordered Tim Holtz's Crazy Dogs mini stamps, and they came with cats. I have cat stamps. I must make cat cards.

    So I would like to sign up, and you can look forward to some sassy, snarky cat quotes from me! I mean, totally inspirational. Hehe.

    Meanwhile, you cat people ARE a bit crazy, but you seem to know it, so it's totally okay. Also, you really don't care what anyone thinks, because you are crazy cat people, so never mind me over here. But I'll make some nifty cards.

    Fabulous cards, as always, dithespy! I think the 3rd one with books is my favourite but love all the sayings!

    Dithespy. Those are awesome. I like the cat on the books too but the quote about them becoming the soul of the House was touching.

    I am still lurking.
    Trying to get back to reality after vacation.
    This is my sister's cat Fin.
    Always the center of attention.


    IMG_5811 s.jpg

    Long story - short-ish. My brother decided to get married and have the ceremony during our vacation.
    Beach theme, his wife said. Outdoor wedding, she said.

    My two sisters and I made all the decorations and bridal bouquet.
    Beach themed decorations for the tables.
    Jars with shells, a poem and little lavender pillows. (Lavender from my sister's garden.)

    IMG_5912 s.jpg

    One special jar for the bride and groom.

    IMG_5943 s.jpg

    The kicker - they forgot to get the license and the preacher wouldn't marry them, so my cousin and my nephew did the ceremony.

    It was about ~95 degrees - whew!

    Thanks everyone for your nice thoughts. It's been hard, I'm trying to get motived to work on my cards so I don't miss the deadline. I should have something soon. I plan to work on them today. I think working on my ATCs is a great way to get out of my depression.

    Bastcrystal. I think My craft room is a big sanity saver. It brings me some joy.

    I hope you find some bliss soon, and the sadness goes far far away

    So sorry to hear of Monroe's passing! Do NOT know what I will do when it's time for my Buddy & Brother - they are so much a part of our lives (any pet, really). Much heartfelt sympathy goes out to bastcrystal
