Caturday Art- Snowshoe Colors of the Sea Kitty

(contains affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good Morning fur buddies, I'm kinda sad and mad at the same time. My evil human mother got rid of my butt warmer. The nice puter that was big that I could lay on it. I  could also snooper
vise her puter activities and make sure she didn't mess up my blog post.  After all I am the star of this blog.  She got this razor thin puter no size to it what so ever.  I've walk around it and stared at it trying to figure out how to take advantage of it.  BUT MOTHER wont let me. I've even leaped over it that got a yell out of mother. I'm not a fat cat even though moms photos make my butt look big.  Sigh I guess I can snooper vise from  the chair next to her.  That's my chair and they better not take that away from me. Aren't I a stinker? Oh check out my art we are sharing at Athena art hop you'll love all the kitties with the cool art. Here's mine.










Check out the sale at zazzle this weekend we have some cool stuff for Easter.

Thrifting Haul-Crafts and collectibles

Good morning dear readers, here's the thrifting haul from this week. I found some really cool stuff to make over in the upcycling department much to Frankie's horror.  He feels abandoned whenever theirs a new craft in the house.  He even tried to push it off the table. So here they are for your viewing pleasure. The first one is of course this lovely birdhouse with all these details.



I love the raised areas and the crystal knobs. The roof is metal and you can't see in this photo but theirs a back door on this bird house.  I've started getting some steam punk bits from Joann's for this birdhouse make over.


I found this lovely chunky rhinestone necklace at trinity thrift. They always have fun jewelry at their store. This piece was unmarked and I was unable to find any info on it. I will have to keep looking for more info on it.


Who doesn't love yorkies and teacups found this at the snowline thrift shop.  This is from the Hamilton collection.  A limited edition in the flamboyant Personali-teas collection called Brimming with Charisma.  So far that's what I have for this haul. Some of these items I have put on eBay. I don't have a store yet.  Does anybody have a store? How did you get started?  I will have some crafts for everyone later.  Maybe down for a day or 2 got the new computer will be having a new Internet put in this week.  Enjoy your day zen hugs to all.

Caturday Art-Snowshoe Vibrant Colors Kitty


(contains affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good afternoon fur buddies here we are late again.  I like to have this post up early but mom was running around again.  She was running to the store again to get more stuff and she didn't even get me more baby food. Horrors of horrors their was another birdhouse craft on the table again.  I had to sniff it. I was going to knock it off the table until mom yelled at me to stop.  She pays more attention to the crafting stuff then she does to me.  I'm going to have to find more ways to sabotage the crafts without her knowing it.  I can't seem to get her to stop doing it.  In fact our neighbor asked  her to paint and decorate a birdhouse and she would pay her for it. It's getting more and more difficult to get attention around here.  What's a fur guy gotta do to get some attention?  Peeps do  you have any ideas?




                                                     added black borders from pic monkey

                                                              added lemon aide from pizap
                                                                       

                                                            dreamscope-fall colors

Caturday Art-Snowshoe Street Art Kitty

Good Morning fur buddies and we are on time this weekend.  Mother is getting back on schedule. She's going to abandon me to go thrifting this weekend.  She finally figured out how to download the photos on the tablet. She tried to pose me can you believe that really.  She made my head look really big and I'm in black and white.  Frankie, it looks very film noir.  Does that mean I look handsome for all the girl kitties to oh and ah over? Then I'm all for that kinda stuff.  We are participating in the Athena cat goddess art hop come and join us and meet other like minded kitties.  For our entry today we used picmonkey and dreamscope (very difficult at some point couldn't tell their was a cat there).









Please check out are zazzle shop we have a lot of nice things for all your gift needs:

Good Morning furbuddies sorry late again.  Mom is beginning to hate this computer and the weather. She forgot to take a photo and finally got one yesterday but the system wouldn't upload it.  So it finally loaded this morning.  I'm hiding on top of the fridge from all the embarassement of the late photo again.  I thought we got that taken care of but no such luck.  Good news I hear talk of a new computer next month.  I hope that means no more wifi problems.  Mother was rude again she took that crafting Photo and changed it to say NO CRAFTING ALLOWED on a t-shirt.  She's going to wear it around town and totally embarass me.  I tell you WHY, WHY does she do these things to me.  I'm going to have to go around town wearing sunglasses.  No, no I better not she'll take a photo of that for sure and put it on t-shirt too. Here's are entry Athena Cat goddess hop go and check it out.

Caturday Art-Snowshoe Graphic Colors Kitty

(contains affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good morning fur buddies,  I had to remind mom to get a move on it.  I wanted this post done today.  I can't believe my humans, boy put this silly thing on my head. I heard its used to make cupcakes.  Well I ask wheres my treat?  Wouldn't you know there's no treat. I am so mad I could spit.  I put up with so much in this household.  Then mother has the nerve to hiss at me.  Yes, she actually hissed at me.  She didn't want me coming near her precious art project.  I wasn't going to do anything to it.  I just wanted to sniff it. Frankie you spilled red ink all over the table last time you came near a project says mom in the background.  Well I never did that she's making it up.  Any way we are joining in the art hop at Athena cat goddess hop be sure and check it out. Here's our entry with the cupcake wrapper on my head.

Upcycling-Ugly Duckling to Outright Gorgeous Frame

(contains affiliated links see disclosure in footer)
Good morning everyone, here's the ugly duckling frame that turned out downed right gorgeous.  I saw this frame and it was so ugly it screamed take me home make me beautiful.  It was a god awful beige yellow color, but it had these raised flowers and grooves that made it perfect for up cycling.  I could add paint and bling to make it beautiful and so I did.  Sorry I did not take a picture before I zapped it with the spray inks,  But here's the process and how it turned out.



                                              first off finished product


I took my spray inks and started just spraying them all over the frame.  I used postbox red, crushed grape, pure sunshine and vibrant turquoise. I was going for a drippy effect but it came out like a burned it.  I love how out it looks.  The little craft saboteur was at it again he spilled my red ink thank god it was all over newspaper.

                                                          NO CRAFTS ALLOWED


I have fallen in love with glitter acrylics,  You don't have to apply the glitter after you paint its inside the paint.  I used red, green and purple and it had to have multiple layers of paint to get good coverage.  It turned out really well especially the rose. It really stood out.  Then I used my glue gun to add some brass elements and vintage jewel bits and voila your done.


Here are some fun finds on amazon to help you make this project.
