Cats, FBs and crafts!

Everyday and evening I like to sit on one of the couches in our living room to relax and write letters. Well, of course my two furry ladies have to be next to me. I like to sit comfortably with a blanket too. So, then the battle begins with the cats. I have my spot on the couch next to a lamp so I can see what I am doing but Nikkisum decided she now wanted to sit there. She grumbles while I remind her that her spot is on the other end of the couch. Now she has decided my blanket is hers. She is constantly looking for the blanket and then settles herself on it. She lets me know whenever I try to move it too. Now the other cat, Kylie is constantly complaining because she wants pets and gets annoyed with her sister. It's quite funny to watch how they behave, almost as if they are human. Like, today I was taking a nap and I closed the door a bit to have peace but Nikkisum opened it with her paw because she doesn't like closed doors. She then came and had a nap with me because I had THE blanket.
So, here is Kylie wanting to come up on the couch but Nikkisum was in her way. See the annoyance in her eyes.

Here is Nikkisum curled up sleeping on THE blanket.

Okay, enough about the cats. Not much has been happening this weekend and the weather is gloomy so the cats and I have been keeping each other company. Anyhow, last week I bought the latest "Marie Claire Idees" magazine. I don't know if any of you have ever seen this magazine but it is full of craft ideas. I would love to try many of them but these days I seem to have such a hard time organizing and settling myself. It's rather annoying. I feel bored but then I don't do anything. I seem to be stuck in a rut and I don't know how to get myself out of it. I often get these feelings. Ugh!

At least I got some great mail this week , one of which was this great letter from my pal Maiken from Norway. She writes such lovely long letters. She also included this really beautiful HQFB.

Then I got a couple of swaps too. These great Suzy Zoo FBs from Isabelle from France. She always makes such beautiful FBs and decos.

And these lovely Spring FBs from my swap partner Stephanie from Florida.

I have a few swaps of my own to finish up so hopefully I'll get them done tonight or tomorrow. Next weekend I'll visit my friend Molly in Keene, New Hampshire which I am very much looking forward to. I need a change of scenery. Bye for now.
