I don’t often feature the work of others on my blog, but this is an outstanding exception that MUST be shared. I have had the privilege of seeing D.M. Cumbo‘s work over the years. His newest project, Dreamside, is an incredible, ground-breaking project that must be seen to be believed. Please view the trailer to D.M. Cumbo’s Dreamside. It is breathtaking.
Dreamside will be a trilogy of books as well as an online video-book series. The videos are free to watch and will be released monthly, so visit D.M. Cumbo’s Dreamside page for more information! There is also a Facebook Page where you can follow the project!
Happy Birthday to…the cats!
I can hardly believe it’s been 6 years since my two goofy cats were born! I adopted them at about 4 weeks in September of 2008, so this is their birthday week. I happily adopted them from the Humane Society of Huron Valley. It was “Buy one get one free” for the cats that week, which is why I have two cats instead of one! Now you know!
It is a special day when your companions turn 6. I, of course, had to make the little guys some birthday cake. Unfortunately it is work getting them to eat much other than cat food (Ferdinand will eat nothing but), so they didn’t do much more than lick the frosting.
He seems to like the frosting but doesn’t like the sprinkles.
While I never would have thought of myself as a “Cat Person” 6.5-7 years ago, I am a happy Cat Mom now. My cats are a wonderful source of inspiration and entertainment, and they always make me smile. I wouldn’t have it any other way, unless there was a way to not ALWAYS be covered in cat hair.
Perhaps of the tiny cake? Perhaps of aging?
While I go and give my cats a little extra cat food and some new toys, I hope you give your companion animals (and/or people) a good hug! Or perhaps a “tooth” like Leo loves to give me.
I have submitted a design in Spoonflower’s “Fishing Lures” fabric design contest. The winning designs will be printed as designer fabric on a variety of fabric types! Too cool!
I created this design this summer. I was inspired by my father’s recent success fly fishing this summer, catching several large trout this season. I would love to use this fabric to make aprons or hot pads (for the cabin!)
If you like my design, please vote for it! Here’s how:
1. Go to Spoonflower’s Fishing Lures contest page.
2. Click on the vote icon next to my design.
3. Press the submit button to place your vote.
I believe that only one vote per person is counted, but please feel free to share the information if you like my design or others. Thank you!
