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.

We Are Bummed

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.

Valentine Selfies

Mom did a Valentine’s Day card yesterday for Caturday Art but I wanted to share it with you again today since today is actually Valentine’s Day.

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.

A Sunday Selfie with Ocean

Ocean was so sweet to mom the other night, she told him he could do this week’s Sunday selfie. Of the three of us, he spends the least time with her. Most of the time, when he does try to cuddle with her, he wants to make biscuits all the time and give her little love biteys when she pets him. For some reason, she doesn’t appreciate this and makes him get down. The other night, though, he carefully climbed up in the chair, pawed her shoulder and laid his head down. No kneading and no biting! This made mom smile so it made me happy to have Ocean do the selfies. Notice I’m even letting him touch me!
