Caturday: Creep

Posted on March 31, 2012 and tagged Art & Photography, Personal with comments

You know when people say they wouldn't want a cat because cats creep them out? Well I totally get that.

Marshall is known for staring at things that don't exist. As in, staring with such intensity that you end up getting down on the ground and trying to see things from his perspective. Once or twice, he's sat facing a corner just staring at the wall. What a weirdo, right? But creepiness is one of the many things I love about kitties.

Here's some stuff I found on the internet this week:

  • This gorgeous embroidery makes me what to get my needle and thread out!

  • Give your photos an ombre effect. So pretty!

  • Ever want to make cookies but don't want to end up eating the whole batch yourself? No, me neither. But in case you did, here's how to make 3 little cookies.

  • A Beautiful Mess will show you how to get these lovely flat iron curls.

Wow March is going by crazy fast, which is awesome! This past week has been a lot of planning and waiting. I have some big plans for this blog next month and it's taking some work to get everything ready. I'm going to be accepting sponsors soon and I'm working on a more detailed About page so you can get to know me a little better. In other exciting news: I'm dying my hair pink and purple this week! Eeeek! Well just the underside, but I'm very pumped.

Well, enjoy what's left of the weekend everyone and don't forget to say hello to your squirrel friends.

Caturday: Soft Kitty

Oh good, it's Caturday! The day where I show you a picture of one my kitties. I did this a long time ago on the blog once, but completely forgot about til now. I think it's time to bring back Caturday!

Here's a photo I snapped the other day of Barney in the dryer. He loves to explore. Do you ever put your pets in funny places to take photos, or is it just me?

To make Caturday even better, here are some links I've gathered this week:

  • Lisa Congdon and Mati McDonough are running an e-course for 'beginning and returning painters' called Get Your Paint On.

  • I found a delicous recipe for a healthy dessert.

  • I'm 99% sure I'm going to dye my hair a crazy color this week! I loooove dip dyed ends like this.

  • And I gotta give credit where credit's due. Kitty Photo Friday on Miss Modish's Blog is what jogged my memory about Caturday. I can't get enough her adorable kitty cats.

Hope everyone had a nice week. I know I did with all this crazy March sunshine. This past week was great for me too because this little blog here saw a record number of visits. I don't who you lovely people are, but thank you so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it.

My favourite photo from this week is definitely the one of Marshall in the middle left. While I was working on the DIY Bubble Art project, Marshall claimed the leftover tissue paper as his own and wouldn't let go.
