Japan’s “Cat Island” Likely Destroyed by Tsunami on The Cat’s Meow

Japan’s “Cat Island” Likely Destroyed by Tsunami on The Cat’s Meow: "Ishinomak

I do hope this cats will not be forgotten or overlooked during the help and rescues. It seems people talk about rescuing dogs, but cats seem to get brushed aside.
Looking at the maps, this little island is right in the path close to the epic centre of the earthquake and tsunami.

So I am Thinking of Getting another Ragdoll

After the fiasco with Lucy see this  Post for some more info, I have been seriously thinking of getting another Ragdoll.  I have been talking to the breeder I got Freyr and Freya from, she has a number of litters due this spring.  Getting a kitten instead of a full on adult, should help with acceptance and also not an queen (adult female).  Katie accepted the kittens fairly well, she just didn't like sharing a house with another adult female and same with Lucy.  Hubby is not on board yet!   I am not in a big hurry, as this time I know what I want and the kind of temperament I really want (a cuddle bug, purr baby).  I can wait until after the wedding to pick up the kitten.  Hopefully by that time I will have convinced hubby.
No card making went on at all on the weekend. Did start a bit of clean up in the craft room, still looks like an episode of Hoarders but not quite as bad as this  post, but still not enough to stamp.
I do have to get started on the wedding invitations, the kids will still have to approve a layout. Hopefully hubby will be working soon.  I don't like him working away, but it does give me a little more room and time to myself.
Reading back over the last year I realized I never did post our holiday pictures. So maybe I'll mess with that later this week.
Back to the job that pays for my supplies ................

Save the Dates are done!

The Save the Dates are all done. I mailed about 30 of them yesterday.  I need more US stamps (postage) the rest are being addressed and mail today.  I will take some nice pictures this weekend with natural light and the good camera.  I did notice a different in the distress of the second batch, it seems lighter.  I guess I have to refill the ink pad more than I did. I was also having trouble with the Rangers Ink Blending tool, replacement pads it were leaving pieces of foam on the cards.  I did try to take some pictures to send to Ranger Ink, to see if that is suppose to happen.  It happened with more than one.  I am wondering if I got a bad batch of replacement pads.
No exercise last night, so had better get at it tonight. Might need to exercise just to stay warm. -35C with wind chill this morning BRRRRRR.
