New Ideas for a New Year!

Another Christmas has come and gone!  Can you believe it?  Wow. 

Mrs. Rabbit and I both had a wonderful time with our friends and family sharing and eating, and eating and sharing and we hope you did too!  With Christmas comes gifts and this year I was the happy recipient of a number of GREAT crafting books and magazines but this one really takes the cake:

A gift from my family: Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat
By: Kaori Tsutaya
Translated from the Japanese by Amy Hirschman

That's right: CAT HAIR!  Could anyone get me a more spot-on gift?  I think not.  As anyone who knows me in 'real life' knows, I am a certifiable Crazy Cat Lady.  I love me some kitties and since the hubby has been relatively insistent that I keep my feline possy to one, I chose the BIGGEST most gorgeous kitty I could find.  You've seen him before, but give him a warm welcome anyways:  The Magnificent Lord Aslan
With great tips on how to clean his fur, felt with it, care for it AND a couple of really sweet little craft ideas, this book promises to be a source of significant entertainment over the coming winter months.  I'll be sure to share whatever Aslan and I come up with and hope that you will do the same.

Until next time, Kitty-Wranglers
Mrs. Bumble (and Appa *meow*)
Pin It Now!


  1. I have enough cat hair here with four cats, three being long hair, if you need any let me know lol....looking forward to seeing what you're going to make :)

  2. Oooooo- more cat hair? How tempting! If you felt like storing it up for me (I have been keeping my collection in a sealed ziplock bag until I have enough to wash it all out) that would be pretty cool-- especially if your cats are anything other than Black and White! Thanks, friend!
