Such good people are to be found on Etsy

I am taking some time today to give some BLOG LOVE to two very special ladies on ESTY

I met this first lady Tracy, during a BNR on Etsy.  She was kind enough to purchase some of my Kittie Whiskers for herself, her boys and her Mom >^.^<

Through these purchases her and I have had many convos, learned about each others lives, shared stories, and have become friends!  Tracy is a wonderful lady and mother of two great boys.  She is also a busy mom with a wonderful shop on Etsy called Denmark55033


 Tracy specializes in handmade bracelets and homemade soaps.  Her shop is beautiful, colorful and looks as though it would smell splendidly!! 

She is currently running a Japan Relief Fund on her Etsy Shop
 which proves she is not only a talented artist but a sweet, kind lady.  Check out her Japan Relief Fund Items here: Japan Relief

 Tracy was nice enough recently to have some kitty toys, made and sent to me from another super Etsian Crafty Cat Lady

These toys are wonderful!  The organic catnip spelled so nice to my kitty clan of four that they had a hard time sharing!   She was sweet enough to even include a bonus cat toy :)
The toys are made very well and beautifully colored also!

 Here is a little I learned about her on her about me on Etsy 
"I got my first cat 10 years ago. Before that, I had no idea how incredibly loving and intuitive cats could be. Making toys that cats love is my way of "giving back" all the love and support my cats have given me. I take this stuff pretty seriously. All the toys I make are my own design and are made from quality ingredients and organic catnip that is grown in my garden. I have a panel of "test cats" (made up of not just my own cats, who can be a bit jaded) to try out new designs for any potential issues before I make that design available for purchase"

Don't these two ladies just sound wonderful!  
Fellow cat lovers unite!

Please check out these two fantastic ladies and give them some love on Etsy today!!

$1.00 from each sale of every one of my kitties will go to my local cat rescue to help with the expenses associated with tending to local unwanted and adoptable animals!

So today I am off to BGSU (Bowling Green State University) to take my niece back to college.
Home of the Falcons!  Freda and Fred to be exact.
I love this trip with the family.  It's usually Carlie, Christy (my Sister and Carlie's Mom) and Momma :)
As usual where ever we go we have an adventure!  On top of all that we will be shopping for a few hours @ the Toledo Mall!  It's wonderful there, so many shops to choose from and they have Chick-Fil-A.  If you you've never had it, you have to try it.  They have the best chicken I have ever tasted in a fast food restaurant!!

  Yes in our family
we are all about the food!  We map out our meals almost as closely as we map out our drive!!

On that note time to finish the last of the packing up, hop in the shower and then hit the road!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Both of these boys are ready for a great home, how about yours??


My Little Poo

My lil' not so little Kitty, Andee

I love this guy right here and I am missing him something awful.  I had to take him to the vet this morning and they decided that they should keep him overnight.  I won't get into the gory details of what is wrong with him but I will add a link for anyone that might want to know about his condition.  It is called MEGACOLON

I want to take the time to thank my boyfriend, family, friends that are close and ones from around the world and on Etsy for taking the time to think of me and my baby.  You all are just so wonderful for showing your concern in this time when I have felt very weak.  

Andee is just so sweet and I don't know what I would do if I lost him at such a young age.  So thank you, your prayers and thoughts are so appreciated.

Also, last but definitely not least...there is a lady named Donna who read in a BNR the story about what was going on with Andee today. Then out of the kindness of her heart purchased two of my kitties.  She attached a note to say "To help with your vet bills!"

I know that Ruby and Lottie will both have good homes!! This makes me happy :) So to help promote a kind and sweet lady, who is also a fellow artist on is a link to her shop, please check her out:

Thanks again Donna and Happy Sales to you!

Conviction: My foggy tune

receive me in my entirety
menu; desires
dig it or allow it to lay upright - whatever
take it in

I speak with purpose - though it may be mine own
have faith in my ability to know the truths I see
intuition is golden; unlike an egg
I birth it still
an allowing of my presence
in my solitude it shadows my making
it harbors my intent
misshapen as ever but real
validate me, my home of homes
the authenticity is concrete
stand and allow
give into it's will

beheld by the beholden stillness
of this fractured character

I am a new seller on Etsy and compared to my Mom or Sisters,I am also fairly new to my craft.  I have only been making hand made plushies for a few years now.  I know that they are something I love and adore but sometimes when it comes to others buying my plushies I am still a little concerned that they might not be as well received.  So when I get some good feedback it really makes me smile, in a truly genuine way!!

I got this feedback today about Walter

"Walter is here! He is adorable, and you are right sooo soft. I know my Granddaughter will love him. For now he is lounging on the bed in the guest bedroom. He was tired after his travels. :) Thank you again. Very cute, and well made."
This absolutely made my day, mostly because I hope that Walter makes her day!!
