Survived the plague

I got sick last Sunday with some mutant flu/bronchitis/respiratory infection and was knocked off my feet for a week. I can't remember the last time I was so sick. Still have a horrible cough but I feel 100% better. I didn't move all week, so now I'm busily getting some Etsy orders out, updating shop and cleaning up house.

I also didn't put together the cats' new toy either, so they just lounged around on top of the box for a week. Got a chance yesterday, it was relatively simple and a big hit!

Gomez and Morticia check out this new contraption

Sidney enjoys the inside of the condo and the bouncy green thing!

Best part of the gift always seems to be the empty box

Ebay Loot

So instead of being practical and sane, I decided to use the money I got from my Ebay auctions on stuff for ME. ME ME ME. No one said I was reasonable.

I got my first flat screen tv! A 32" Samsung for my bedroom. Adore it, I may never leave the bed.

Then I decided with the last bit of money I should get something for the cats. I have been planning for ages (and I do mean ages) to get them a tree; a furniture tree, not planting a real tree in my house in case you were wondering.

I got a great deal from Armarkat, this sucker is 72 inches tall. You know in a pet store this would would go for $300 up, plus the added addition of dogs having peed on it. Ordering from Armarkat was $125 plus free shipping. It will be here Monday.

Now putting it all together is a whole 'nother ball of wax. I am the woman known to my friends who got the shower stand (it had a tension rod) stuck behind the toilet (don't ask).

Bengals love to climb so I hope this gives Gomez some fun, he got booted out of my bedroom last night for scaling up on a wall shelf last night. I think my oldest kitty Lucy will love the hammock if Gomez doesn't pester her.

Happy Accident

So I wasn't all that pleased with my resin experiment (see previous post), I don't think I mixed the resin right or I'm just too damn picky and they probably looked fine and I just found some tiny flaw I didn't like.

So I soaked the frames to remove the paper so I could salvage the frames .. and whadda ya know after I peeled the resin from the frames I had the prettiest little translucent images that had transferred to the resin. Excuse my gluey fingers.

You really can't tell up against the white since that compliments and brings out the color, but they are very interesting looking and not a lost cause after all!
