My Year in Review!

   Wow! Only a few more hours left in 2013.

'Tis the time to shop I guess

   I don’t recall ever needing to return or exchange gifts I’ve received. And I don’t recall ever going out shopping on the day after Christmas.

It's all about the cats today!

   Whew! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas have all come and gone. Two more celebrations to go – New Year’s Eve and the Orange Bowl.

What do I do with my scraps of fleece?

   I’m trying to find something I can do with the fleece squares I have left over from making the no-sew fleece blankets back before Christmas.

Use wrapping paper scraps to make beads

   I’ve made paper beads in the past and used them in my jewelry making. This time I used wrapping paper.

A necklace and a bracelet from one old belt

   I have accumulated quite a few old belts from visits to thrift shops. I like making jewelry out of each 50-cent find.

A Christmas poem for Caturday!

‘Twas four days before Christmas, in a house full of cats,
and I heard a sweet purr as they started to stir.
The kitties were restless, there’s so much to see,
By the window are toys all hooked to a tree.

The time of year for giving

   Do you like donating to charities this time of year? While we hope our gifts make it to the intended recipients, is there a way to really know?

Wire + Chain + Buttons = Bracelet

   Over the last few months I have managed to accumulate so many buttons that I think it rivals my stash of beads.

A cat blanket for a "Caturday" post

   Back in June, when I first started this blog, I mentioned how I had turned into a garage girl and coined the name Creative Cave for my workspace.

A blue bling blog post

   Get ready for a sparkle overload. Instead of focusing on today being Friday the 13th I am sharing a sparkly bracelet and rings.

Every time a bell rings...

   Do you have a favorite Christmas movie? Is there one you can’t make it through the season without watching once, or twice?

Everyday is "Cat"urday at my house!

   I am certainly not the first person to use the word "Caturday." However, as the parent of the hurricane triplets in my house I think I can safely say that every day is Caturday…or maybe a “cat”astrophe.

My first no-sew fleece blanket

   I might be a little behind the fad, but I finally made one of those no-sew fleece blankets.

First a belt then a bracelet

   I had to do a little housekeeping in the Creative Cave yesterday. But once that was complete I got to work on handmade jewelry.
