I Couldn’t Fool You — More Car Time

Christy sitting by carrier looking out the window - I Couldn't Fool You -- More Car Time

Christy close up in the car getting more car time in prep for her tripI teased you a little yesterday with my selfies but it really wasn’t that hard to guess where I was. Most of you figured out that I was getting more car time in preparation for my trip to the BlogPaws conference in June. Mom had errands and it was a beautiful, sunny day — purrfect for a family outing. Well, not the whole family.

As you may remember, I haven’t been that happy riding in the car. Mom thought maybe it was the carrier I didn’t like so she had decided to try the larger carrier … Continue reading

Sunday Selfies Sneak Peek

Christy selfie -

This Sunday Selfies sneak peek (on Monday this week) gives you a glimpse of what is to come tomorrow.

Can you guess where I am?

I was so excited I couldn’t hold still and concentrate on my selfies. Mom had to put me in her lap and help me!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow and see what I was doing when I took my selfies.

I hope you had a super weekend.

Caturday Art: Taking It Easy

Mom has been really busy and not feeling up to par so I decided to let her off easy for today’s Caturday Art. She created some things a while back when she was experimenting with an app. These experiments never were published so I suggested she use them.

022016_1 022016_2 022016_3Hope you had a restful Caturday and enjoyed all the art in the hop. We’re late but we’re here!

We Are Bummed

Christy snoozing in sun puddle

Echo, Ocean and I are a little bummed today. For the past week or so we have had the most pawsome weather. It was glorious! If you follow me, you may have heard me mention just a time or two about how much it has been raining — over six weeks with only a day or two off here and there and they were still gray and gloomy. For those few days, though, the sun was shining and we had sun puddles in two of our windows.

Two Cats on Marbled Glass Inspired by Valentine’s Day

Two cats on marbled glass digital art

For this week’s Caturday Art, mom had an idea for a Valentine’s Day card and wanted to learn how to use the custom shape tool in Photoshop to do it. Photoshop Elements, which is on her sick computer and no longer works, has a cut out tool that makes what she wanted to do pretty easy. It seems, though, that Adobe thinks if you use regular Photoshop, doing the same job needs to be more complicated.

So, she hopped on Mr. Google to find a tutorial. Of course, like most things, once you know how to do it, it is quite easy.

While she was tinkering with her idea for the Valentine’s Day card, she wanted to see what she could do with the shape and came up with this.

More Caturday Art Filters

Mom tried and tried to do something different in Photoshop for today’s Caturday Art but just couldn’t come up with anything she liked. She said the creative juices just weren’t flowing. Finally, she decided to just use a beautiful photo of me and see what she could do with it with art filters.

Here’s the original photo.
