About Me

Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

And Jasper makes three!
Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Finally, back to the drawing board...

and making some cards again!  Believe it or not, these cards began life as the basic layout for Thanksgiving cards last November.  Seriously.  Then Christmas came along and I had cards to make for that and well, you know how things get pushed aside.  I dug this old Hello Spring! stamp out of my stash the other day and decided to put these cards to good use.  Nothing fancy - I glued the green background to ivory card stock.  I stamped the image on white card stock and then colored selected sections with watercolor pencils.  I experimented with watercolor crayons, but I wasn't happy with the colors.  I finished them off with a sage ribbon threaded through two holes punched in the top center of the card.  I was pretty happy with the way they turned out - and inside is a timeless quote from Ward Cleaver: You're never too old to do goofy stuff. 
Now if that doesn't say spring, nothing does.
