Very sad day :(

My beautiful girl Tilly died this morning. She was 9 1/2 and we are going to miss her so much. She was one of our kittens that I hand reared and I swear she thought she was our child! She was soft, loving, beautiful and loved to be cuddled. She would climb on me in bed and sleep on me no matter what position I would be in! She loved our company, always greeted us in the mornings or when we came in and our lives will be totally empty without her 😦

RIP my beautiful, special girl, Mum loves you xx


My Copic Markers, a paper rosette and a silly cat!

I have been following some of Suzanne J Dean’s great tutorials on copic colouring and found the colours she uses are fab so invested in some sketch markers to go with my ciaos and had to make a new home for them as they are expanding!! I used a gorgeous silver box which was part of a Lancome Genifique set that my darling hubby gave me for Christmas. It is a lovely sturdy box and I put dividers in it to separate them into colour groups so they are easy to find.

I am waiting for Tracy at Dies to Dies for to get the new MFT rosette die in and love these so had a go at making them and was pleased with the result but the die will make it much easier.
I had to add this picture of my lovely boy Tom – he was sitting watching TV with his tongue out, he looked so funny, he is such a daft cat!!


New Foster Mum!

I had to take one of my cats to the vet today and met a lady in the waiting room with a 3wk old kitten, sooooo sweet! She fosters for one of the cat charities and we got talking and as I have first hand experience of hand rearing my own kittens, it seems I could be of help to them so I have contacted the Cats Protection League locally to offer my services. I am very excited at the prospect and would willingly foster kittens indoors as I have the equipment and if I am needed to foster older cats they provide the purpose built shelters/cabins for you in your garden. I will keep the blog posted with any updates!
