6.18.2016 Intl Box Day BADGE


Today is one of our favorite days of the entire year: International Box Day. That it is on Caturday this year made for a bit of a challenge. As we always pawticipate in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog hop, Mom needed a photo that she could turn into something that didn’t look like a big brown blob. Luckily we got a huge box containing litter yesterday. Dad put it in the foyer and waited for one of us to get in it. Here’s who showed up: The blog hog himself!


Mauricio has claimed the cardboard box for International Box Day.


Two or three of us could have joined Mau, which would have made for a way more interesting photo. But just as Mom feared… she had a brown and boring boxy photo with which to work. So, you know what happened. She threw everything at it and then some. All the edits, including rotating the orientation of the photo, were done using PicMonkey except the last two things—adding the HDR effect and the black border. She used Picasa for those things.


The box in this photo disappears behind the art.

Father’s Day Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001Tomorrow is Father’s Day as well as our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We are thinking that it might be fun to include your dad in your selfie. If you’d like to have the day off from the pressure of taking your own photo, feel free to enter one with just your dad. It’s always impawtant to let your dad know how much you love and appreciate him. We know some of you don’t have dads, but please don’t let that stop you from joining us and hopping.

Until tomorrow…toodles and love to all.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
