Welcome Mac!

Hello!  I'm loving the change of seasons here in Tennessee.  Sorry I haven't much in the way of art or craft to share; I'm working on projects but just not things I can share right now. 

What I can share is this beautiful ball of fur...Mac.  I had a sweet cat many years ago that reminds me of Mac but I didn't think I'd ever have another cat.  Why?  My seventeen year old daugher has always had an intense fear of all animals and so it was just a given that we would be a pet-free home.  Over the years we attempted to help her overcome her fears: therapy, trips to the pet store, we even attended several weeks of dog obedience classes in order to expose her to animals.  She did hold a puppy once but the whole experience backfired when the mama dog got loose and came for her baby...actually I think that probably made the fear worse. Mac.  Mac the little miracle maker.

Why this little guy found favor with Clarissa's heart...I don't know but I am thankful.  She has no fear of him.  That in itself is a miracle.  Mac's been with us since Thursday.  We were actually going to babysit him for my son and look for a home for him at the same time  My son rescued Mac from a parking lot a little over a week ago and fed him and loved him back to health.  We had no clue that Mac would become a part of OUR family.  Clarissa decided on Thursday night that we wouldn't be finding Mac a home; he'd be staying right here.  Now that's a miracle.

Pretty Pink Tags

It feels like I've been neglecting my blog but I have been so busy.  In the art department, I'm working away on Christmas gifts for my art club and I've been in a RR or two.  I keep thinking that life will slow down but so far I've been wrong.  My daughter's school started fall break today and I'm so excited to lay the regular hustle and bustle of school aside for a week.  Sleep and leisure will hopefully be my companions for the next few days. 

I do have these tags to share.  They were quick and easy and I used Altered Pages' images as the focal points.  Between the sleep and leisure, I hope to have more to share soon....Later!
