...make up this post! First off, I wanted to say thank you all SO much for your kind comments and prayers concerning our cat Lillie! I meant to mention her last night, but had like two seconds to write, and forgot. (Isn't that a terrible cat-mommie thing to do? I feel really badly about that.) I haven't stopped thinking and worrying about her, though. Because, no, we are still hoping and praying that she will come home. What concerns me most is that the neighbors haven't seen her around. Lillie and Max tend to stay around our neighborhood. I have been running through possible scenarios and coming up rather clueless. She had both a collar and a little ID thing attached to it, with her name and our number. Wouldn't someone call if they found her, or even if, God forbid, she was hit by a car? I am trying to be hopeful, even though it has been exactly one week since we last saw her. Thank you again for all of your prayers! I was truly so touched by all of your comments! I put another picture of her and Max on here~ I hope you don't mind. This one is funny to me because although you can barely see it, they were actually trying to cuddle up to our other cat, who was NOT pleased with our choice to adopt them. He was so unhappy in fact, that he eventually ran away, as I mentioned before. It was very sad. :(
Well, after that morbid, depressing discussion, I DID do something a little fun, and made this mini banner. I am going to attach it on my wreath on the front door. I will make sure to show a picture of it, hopefully tomorrow! Of course, this banner had to say "Boo"! I couldn't help myself! :) It was so easy to do, too!
For some reason, I was having trouble getting a clear image, maybe because it's at night!
I also realized you can't see the details on the middle letter as well, so here's another picture of it!
My sister asked in her comment whether I made it with paper or fabric. I made mine with paper. I don't know how other people make theirs, but I just drew my triangle shape onto some white cardstock paper (thick paper used for card making, etc.) and then used that as a pattern to cut out whatever scrapbook paper I wanted. Then I just glued the scrapbook triangle to the cardstock triangle. Then you add your letter to the triangle, and whatever embellishments you desire! I had fun by adding the adhesive decorative ribbon, so much easier to work with than ordinary ribbon, and adhesive sparkly gems. These can be found at Michaels, or I am sure any craft store really! Okay, and I admit, I am officially addicted to these adhesive things! The sticky-back letters, gems, ribbon~ I mean, how smart is that? And while we are on this subject of cool things, did you know they actually have spray glue? Now you probably all already knew this, but I never said I was the brightest crayon in the box! I was just shopping at Michaels and thinking to myself that what would be perfect is if they had such a thing as spray glue, and an employee there told me that there is such a thing! So I won't be making my fortune in marketing spray glue after all. Oh, well. Perhaps I can just settle for making my craft creating more simple! :)
I didn't want to forget to say a few things...first, I want to say thank you to everyone who joined in on the "Fall Cooking Fest" I held on my blog last month. I know it's coming to you super late, but I hope you know I really appreciated it! I now have some good recipes to try, and hope you do too!
Second of all, I haven't forgotten to pass on a few awards I have been given. I will be doing this very soon! I am so honored and touched to have been given them, and frankly, quite surprised that anyone even reads what I write here! :)
And last, if you're still here, I am SO sorry that I have been such a terrible blogger friend! I should be able to have some good blog time tomorrow, and plan to catch up on you all! I can't wait to see what you have been up to, you all just amaze me with what you do and say! :)
I hope you had a good Monday! One down, four to go, right? :)
