Back in March several EtsyBlogger teammates participated in a journal swap as a fun way to get to know each other better. Well, back in March our mommy was too busy doing tax returns to be able to join in but Erika from NicoDesigns was very nice and said she'd do a journal swap with Mommy after tax season was over. We are very grateful to Erika because it means we get to help make the journal! My sisfur Isabella snoopervises everything...
She very thorough and doesn't miss a thing...
For some reason, Mommy keeps the paper in bags so they are hard to see but even so I help her pick out which paper to use for the journal pages. Use this one next Mommy...
We're working really hard on the journal for Erika and we just want to let her know how thankful we all are for the opportunity to swap journals with her! Thank you Erika!

If you want to read a fun blog about crafts, home decorating and adorable kids, check out Erika's blog and to see her lovely fabric creations check out her Etsy shop!

I really like Erika's blog she's very creative

It looks like you ladies are having lots of fun. Will we get to see the finished product? Be sure to sneak in some special kitty furs. . . .

We agree with Jane and Alice that sneaking in some cat furs is a good idea! Keep up the good work, girls!

Well aren't you just the craftiest kitties! I am sure mom's journaling goes MUCH smoother with you ladies on the job as well! :)

Have a lovely day girls!

Ah, shucks:) It has been so much fun to work on your journal, Sharla, and I am glad you wanted to swap.

The girls look so precious helping you out. One of the things about cats is that look they get when they paw at things--like in the last photo:)

The bathroom is almost done so I hope to finish your journal next week! (I hope you have not been waiting for me).

Everybody needs a good helper, and you two look like you're the best!

Roses and Lilacs said... May 27, 2010 at 6:58 AM

With those two helping, the journal is bound to turn out wonderfully.

Adorable pics - such helpful kitties!

Wow! You all are really good at journal making!! We're sure your mom appreciated all your help!

You are excellent helpers. Mom is going to go visit her blog...she likes crafts and stuff! Thanx!

Mishkat said... May 27, 2010 at 9:51 AM

We didn't know your mom could make journals too! She is talented at so many things. We are sure she couldn't do it all without your help, though :).

Sparkle said... May 27, 2010 at 10:25 AM

I'm really not sure what a journal swap is about, but I do think that no job is done right without help from a kitty! Two kitties are even better. Glad to see you guys have it all taken care of.

No job is properly done without a Cat (or two!) to assist. We're also puzzled why your Mom thinks she needs to keep the pages in bags...Felix would be more than happy to put a few fangmarks in for a personalized touch.

Angel you are looking especially pretty in that picture today. You two are such big helps in selecting the papers. Won't that be tons of fun to make a journal.We will go visit your Mommy's friends's blog.
Have a great day.

Don't work too hard, girls! I've seen how exhausted Dave gets in our mom's quilt studio - so I know how tiring that kind of work is!
Play bows,

Cinnamon-Girl said... May 27, 2010 at 6:23 PM

You both did a great job helping! I bet the journal turned out great! Love, Moon

Splendid Little Stars said... May 27, 2010 at 8:38 PM

Isabella, I see that you are furry good at protecting the paper as well! What wonderful helpers you and Angel are!

Isabella looks as if she takes her job very seriously :) I actually had a boss like her once and trust me, you didn't want to make a mistake.
