Happy weekend, bloggy friends! I hope you all have some fun plans in the works :).
I am writing this little post because i truly need your advice. I submitted my artwork to Art Doll Quarterly magazine back in March and this week they wrote to say that they are going to publish my dolls! Woohoo! I am very excited indeed! However, i am TOTALLY waffling about which 3 or 4 dolls to send them. My husband said, well, why don't you poll your blog friends?? Great idea....alrighty then! So, if you have a few minutes and are willing, i would be so grateful if you would head over to my etsy shop and then lend me your thoughts.
My new mini photo studio arrived yesterday morning! Such fast shipping and it was free....gotta love that. I haven't used it yet, so i don't have any photos to share, but stay tuned.
I think I have written about all of my personal cats except one, so I thought I'd share Finnegan's story today. Our sweet Finny was abandoned in the same warehouse as Rooney (previously posted about him). Animal control trapped him and deemed that he was too feral for adoption, so they were going to euthanize him. My employer (a fellow rescuer) and I decided to adopt him, and he has now been with us for almost 3 years. He is a TOTAL scaredy cat and truly never would have been adopted. I think he was terribly traumatized from his past, but he has a very loving side. He lays low during the day and then every night when i got to bed and turn off the lights, he jumps up and spoons with me. I can't describe how excited he gets. I rub his tummy and he licks my face and snuggles as close as he can get. Sometimes he wraps himself around my head or drapes himself across my chest. I rarely get a full night of sleep, but it is worth it to give him those hours of bliss :).
The first photo is Finnegan shortly after we rescued him with some foster kittens from the same animal control. The second photo is recent....he is much plumper now...LOVES his canned food treats.
