Caturday Art


I spy with my little eye.


It’s amazing how little Mom did to create our art for today. I think you’ll be surprised when you see the original photo at what a huge difference three small steps made. She started by adding the Fractal filter with Dreamscope, the grey wisps around the edges of my photo with piZap and the border with Picasa. Purrsonally I think this is one of the best pieces of art she has ever created. I may be slightly prejudiced.

Here’s the original photo from Christmas 2011. I was doing my best to spy on my fursibs from behind the Christmas decorations.

Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001Mom convinced Calista Jo to take some selfies for tomorrow, so she’ll be your host. With just one week left until Christmas, Mom says she’ll try to do something festive again. Wrap yourself up in some ribbons and bows and join in the fun. We know your humans are busy with holiday preparations and other fun stuff, so give them a break and snap a selfie to post. No words needed, just your smiling face.

Holiday Greetings

Mom asked me to let everyone know that she has just begun writing and addressing our cards. We kitties are really hoping most of you will receive them prior to Christmas, but if you don’t, please forgive her. She’s doing the best she can right now.

Purrs and paw-pats, Giulietta

p.s. Did you know that was me in the art? I was still really young and hadn’t grown my floofy furs yet!

I agree that it’s possibly your mom’s best art to date. For some reason, it reminded TW of Alice in Wonderland.

This is beyond stunning, Giulietta! Tell your mom she amazes us with her art, and she constantly outdoes herself. Beautiful!

Also tell please tell your mom that she can take all the time she needs. No one will think any less of her or the Kitties Blue for late cards, or if no cards are received at all. We more than understand and are here for you all. Purrs, prayers, and hugs!

We will see you tomorrow!
