Dagan cut me five of these pieces of scrap carpeting for Karma's cat box...
...which is this cheap child's toy box from Target. That Leah is so clever! She cut an entrance hole in the end before she put it together and we found a cheap plastic tub she cut down that fit inside for the actual litter box. Anyways, I lay a piece of carpet on the bottom to help catch dirty feet as she exits. Here's the before...
...and here's the after. All cleaned up with new carpeting. Not that it looks that much different--but it smells a little better--hehe! Be glad there are no smell-o-blogs--ROFL! Caroline went the extra mile yesterday! And do you think Miss Karma had a kind thank you? Nope. I certainly didn't raise her to be so rude. Cats do not take instruction well.
Anyways, a really bad thunderstorm was passing thru right about the time Dagan and Leah were getting off work so they went home, got their cars in the garage (to avoid the half-dollar size hail if it happened to hit here--didn't), and waited it out. It was traveling pretty darn fast. They came over about an hour later and we had dinner. Then, while Dagan watched TV (America's Got Talent)...
...Leah peeked at it, too, we sorted the cards by the color ink we'd use on the backside, and she started stamping the backsides of the cards.
So glad I bought that stamp-a-ma-jig! Can get the stamp exactly where you want it. Well, unless you lose your grip--hehe!
So here's examples of our new custom-made stamps!
Looking all official, now, with our etsy website stamp, eh?
Plain ariel font and easy to read. We're happy with them. :)
I caught Miss Karma sniffing the mouse on the pole toy late last night--hehe! Guess I should buy some of that catnip spray. ;)
Dagan still needs to bring over cords and such and is waiting for that part to come--but he brought pieces with last night as long as they were coming over. Not sure what these things are...
...but they are all pretty heavy.
I've been up late, as you know. Well last night, about the time I was ready for bed, another bad storm went thru--loud thunder and such lightning that the sky was lit up! The weather folks were up and on TV--and talking tornado sightings. Hate when they come in the dead of night. You can't see them and you're not dressed--hehe!
I turned off the TV and McLap--ended up reading Pillars and not getting to bed till almost dawn. So, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. Oh well. Maybe I'll get to bed earlier tonight then? Hope so.
Today is going to be a quiet day. If I do anything extra it will probably be to putter with the card stamping. I'll keep catching up online. Even after the storms went thru--not a day to open the windows and it is supposed to be getting hotter over the next couple days, too. Summer.
Hope you're having a good week. :):)
I love this quote today!
