You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Just For Me - A Kitty Squash Book

Hi!  Back in November I lost my cat, Mikey, whom I had for 15 years.  My doctor told me his son had 2 rescued cats available for adoption.  This was perfect; I didn't want to start all over with a kitten.  I agreed to take a male.  His name was butterscotch.  I quickly learned that he is "a talker" so I re-named him with something to reflect that.  I call him DJ ( like the old talkative dj's of the 50's and 60's).  We get along wonderfully and he likes to rub and cuddle.  He sleeps when I'm working because he knows he won't get attention then.  Here's my kitty brag book.

I can't get pictures of him in motion; he's too quick.  It took a long time to get pictures of him sleeping because he would jump up as soon as I moved to get the camera.  I waited a long time to get the one of him in his most relaxed position, belly-up and sprawled out.  Decorative accents come from the Cricut Lite Meow cartridge.  The cover of the squash book is 4x4, the inside sections are 3x3.

Happy creating.

I'm glad I made this little squash book for me.
