The EtsyBlogger for the month of May is Createathought and boy, she certainly gives us ways to create a thought from wonderful journals to cards to buttons to jewelry. Her shop is filled with wonderfully creative items and here's a couple of my favorites:
Be sure to check out her shop and her blog to see all her incredible work!
Wishing you a relaxing and sunny Sunday!

It's Sadieday so what better way to spend it by going on a stroll with me and my mommy! For some reason, when we start out on our stroll, Mommy keeps telling me to quit pulling. When will she learn that I am a husky and that is my job?
Ahhh, I'm finally free from my leash and able to check out all the pee-mail left for me!
Uhm, yeah Mommy, I see the pawprints in the mud.
No, I don't know why my feet are muddy.
Warning, another boring scene shot from Mommy!
Well, we're almost home now so I hope you enjoyed the stroll with me today!

Hope you have a wonderful Sadieday!

Whatcha' lookin at Isabella?
I'm trying to figure out what it is Angel. I think you should try to get a closer look.
Okay, this is as close as I can get. I think it's one of those flying thingys.
Way to go Angel, you made it go way up higher!
Ah, love the appreciation from my bis sisfur!

Happy Tortie Tuesday! Today's lesson in Tortieness is learn to multi-task when you can in order to conserve your time and energy. I've learned to multi-task by combining my naps...
with watching for birdies - whenever I decide to open my eyes!

In what ways do you multi-task?

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Mommy takes squillions of pictures of us every day but not all of them make it on to the blog. We're going to show some of the ones who didn't make the first cut although since they are of us, they're still cute!

This is Sadie at the beach a couple of weeks ago. She was making sure her tail was wagging I guess.
I wasn't supposed to be in the picture of Isabella for the Cinco De Mayo post since it happened on Tortie Tuesday. But, I'm never far away!
This is what happens when Mommy puts her legs up on the coffee table - it creates a hammock for Isabella to sleep on! Isabella will lay there way longer than Mommy can stand it!
I know Mommy loves it when I get in front of her computer monitors but for some reason she put a blanket for me to sleep on BEHIND her computer monitors. Well, I never miss laying on a comfy spot but I still keep my eye on her between the monitors!
Hope you enjoyed our outtakes but it's time for a nap now...
Do you have fun plans for this holiday weekend?

The current EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival hosted by TiLT Creations is a choice between the following:

1)Tell about your favorite birthday memory, gift or wish...
-OR-
2) Show & tell: Summer line - what you will be making/showing in your shop this summer...

My favorite birthday memory occurred many years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday. For my 8th birthday, my parents decided I could get a puppy! It was to be a surprise so I wasn't told where my dad was taking me on my birthday but it was supposed to be a place that had puppies they were giving away. By the time we got there, however, there were no puppies left and I had also figured out what was going on. My dad knew that since I was now expecting a puppy for my birthday, he needed to do what he could to find me a puppy so he took me to the humane society to look around. I remember looking in all the cages and not seeing the perfect dog for me and then there was this one cage where a lady and her daughter were standing in front of discussing the dog inside. I waited patiently for them to move on and as soon as they did, this is what I saw...
I immediately knew I found my birthday present! I named her Spice since I had a cat Sugar at home already (get it? Sugar & Spice? What can I say, I was only 8 years old!). Spice was a wonderful dog who loved to go on car rides and loved to go boating with us. She also got along well with Sugar and the other cats who followed - Pepper and Mikey. Spice lived to be 18 years old and this is a picture of her in her later years.
Spice was certainly a special birthday present and I'll never forget her! Thanks for sharing the memories with me! I hope you have wonderful birthday memories too!

Happy Tortie Tuesday! Today's lesson in Tortieness is to think outside the box! Sometimes situations present themselves differently than you are used to but don't let it stop you from finding other ways to put it to the best use. What do you do when faced with a different situation?

The weather has been so nice lately that Mommy and I have been going on lots of walks (or as she says W-A-L-K as if I can't spell)! I thought I'd take you along!
I hear something going on in the trees Mommy, do you hear it?
I told you something was going on Mommy! Do you see what I see?
There it is!
There's two of them! Come on Mommy - run!
I wish I could climb trees like my sisfurs!
I hope you enjoyed going on a stroll with me today! I'm going to nap now and dream of chasing squirrels!

For some reason the birdies around our house have been very vocal and active lately so we haven't had a chance to get much sleep since we HAVE to watch them! Today we hope to get caught up on our naps - after we watch the birdies of course!
Mommy needs to get caught up on some awards we received. She's not a very pawsistant sometimes so we're sorry for them being posted so late.

Abby at Simply Charming in SC gave us this Zombie Chicken Award! We first thought we were going to get a chicken to play with but we're very happy to receive the award! Thanks Abby!

I'm hiding in my box from my little sisfur Angel. She has her fog lights on but she still doesn't see me in here.
Maybe if I turn my fog lights on it'll help her find me!
We hope you have fun things planned for today! Happy Caturday!
