Christmas is coming, and I have been buying gifts for a couple of months. I usually start my shopping in the summer, but for the past two summers, nothing has appealed to me. I've cut back a little on spending, and so for a couple friends, I thought I'd try a new craft. I have made so much jewelry for my friends in the last however many years, I'm afraid they might be bored with it! One of my friends took a class on how to paint on glass, and she came over a month go to show me how. As tricky as it can be, I'm loving it! So I thought I'd make a few gifts! The wine glasses are for two friends, and the beer mug is for K. I wanted to do tennis racquets and balls, but the racquets got frustrating. lol Anyway, maybe I'll just keep painting glass as a new hobby? If I really wanted to go crazy, I could glue beads all over them, too!?

It's rather hard to believe that 12 years ago today, I was given a small puffball of a kitten as a Christmas present. A dozen years later, and he isn't tiny! Mittens is my kid, and I just love him to bits. He has brought me so much joy, as well as aggravation! lol I don't know how many years he'll still be with me, but being that he's an indoor cat, I'm hoping it's many more!
So Happy Anniversary, Mittens! As mommy always tells you, you're the love of her life!
