The kitty vibe is strong this week. Our pal Charlie over at Doodlewash created a darling watercolor illustration of a kitten ready to pounce and Emmeline Draws released her new enamel pin, Book Kitties. When a theme emerges, I just need to go with it.
Speaking of kittens, our kitten clan is doing well. The kittens go for their second round of vaccinations this week and Pickle, the one kitten who is already adopted, will be going to her fur-ever home this weekend. They are exuberant, curious and bring us a ton of joy. Hopefully, soon many will go off to new adventures with new homes to bring joy and happiness to others too.
I know there’s been a lot of kitten talk these last few weeks but six kittens and a mama cat certainly have occupied a good deal of my head space (and studio space).
I could have written about the Star Wars Celebration event and the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi but you knew I was a Star Wars nerd already?
Don’t forget the great links below including the Dominant Industry Mirror Inks, edible burrito tape and the Lamy Aion gets sour grapes from A Fleeting Ripple. See you all next week!
