Today is a happy day - a birthday to celebrate! We got to celebrate the day our Catie girl was born with her. Can't believe that was such a long time ago - 32 years. She is definitely a joy in our lives, and we are glad she still likes to spend some time with us on her special day. After having a fun brunch with her and her boyfriend and his parents we came home to relax for a bit. I had thought about putting the Christmas decorations up, but decided to wait until tomorrow. I made it a tradition while Catie was growing up not to decorate until after her birthday, so I know that tomorrow I will really be ready to get everything dolled up for the holidays!
I was ready to work on the Island Batik Challenge for this month. Tis the Season for Giving.
I cut and stuffed and sewed. I made some long "cigar"s, some small and large kick sticks, some cute little kitty ravioli and a few primitive mice! I used up all of my catnip and most of my fiberfill. I still have a lot of scraps left, though!
I decided that Scamper deserved to have some new toys (after all, charity begins at home, right?) and pulled out one of the long orange cigars and mouse for him.
Facebook Page and see what's going on there! I hope you support your own local shelter when you can, it really makes a difference for the poor animals that end up there.
Make sure you take the time to do some giving this month - it will make you feel good!
