|“It’s tough life for a busy kitten”|
I have been a Shutterfly user since about 2005. I have used them for many of my business needs as well as personal projects. All of my wedding photos were printed by them along with the many enlargements we have hanging on the walls.
One of my favorite and so far, most important projects that I entrusted to Shutterfly was the Thank You Cards from our wedding. The process was amazingly simple: I uploaded my image, chose the card style, made my edits, and then placed the order following their simple, step-by-step instructions. This is what I ended up with:

I am very pleased to have been chosen as one of the bloggers to be able to share a special giveaway with my readers. TWO lucky MoonCat Farms readers will each win
10 12 Free Photo Cards from Shutterfly. You can choose to make 12 of one card, 1 each of 12 cards, you decide! Just choose a favorite photo (or 20), upload them, and you’re on your way to some gorgeous cards.
To enter this contest, you must be a follower of this blog. Then simply leave a comment below and you’re entered! It’s that simple. It would be cool if you could tell me if you’re familiar with Shutterfly or what kinds of cards you think you’d choose if you’re one of the winners. Not required, just nosy me again..
Contest ends Monday, August 9th. Good luck!
Disclosure: I received sample photo cards from Shutterfly in exchange for my honest review. Shutterfly is supplying the two winners with their prizes. All opinions are 100% MINE.
I am one of those people who like to have their Christmas shopping done by, oh say Halloween? I hate the last minute rushing during the holidays. It drives me nuts. I want to be able to enjoy myself (and let’s be honest, buy things for myself since I’m not having to shop for others at this time of year…) Hello sales!
So I have been spending a lot of time shopping creatively online lately. Being home with Mom makes it hard for me to run around and find the things that I want for my family and friends.
Today I’m looking at knives on a neat site I just found called The Knife Depot. Mr. MoonCat and Dad are both most likely going to end up with something sharp and pointy in their stockings. ~ Good thing neither of them pays much attention to what I write on a daily basis. If you are on here today, you’re getting sticks…sharp and pointy sticks..
|What is it? What is it?|
The names everyone came up with were amazing! You all are very creative. We’ll have to put it out there again next time we have a baby to name..So without further ado……
Introducing: Phantom Sunday Gambler
The winner of the horse-themed prize is LemonVerbenaLady! She came up with Phantom which is such a perfect description of his little face. The group played with it until Phantom Sunday Gambler came out of the brainstorming. Of course, Pops promptly declared “I don’t care what you put on the papers, I’m still calling him “Wedgie”.
The winner of the random drawing for the notecards is: Susan!
Congratulations to you both and thank you all for joining in on the fun. Be sure to stay tuned as we have a BIG giveaway from CSN Stores later this week! It’s one you won’t want to miss.
Many people think that frogs and toads are the same creature. While they are both classified as amphibians, they are two distinct animals.
|Mr Toad and Froggie|
- Must live near a source of water
- Their skin is moist and smooth, it appears to be slimy
- Their back legs are longer, allowing them to jump much higher than toads
- Many have suction-cup type webbed toes which allow them to swim and cling to walls and other vertical or smooth objects
- Their eyes are higher on their heads and tend to be more round-shaped
- Their nose and body is usually more narrow than the toad’s

The first product would be this great Smart Cat Ultimate Scratching Post. I’ve seen this same scratcher in other online stores for quite a bit more money and was leery of spending that much (+shipping). When I saw it for an average of $40 less plus FREE SHIPPING at CSN, I knew that Porkchop & the crew must have it!
They love it. It’s super tall and very sturdy. It really makes a nice piece of furniture for the little furfaces. A friend of mine was amazed that it was an actual cat scratching post.
A friend of mine recently introduced me to Cafepress.com by giving me a gift certificate for my upcoming birthday (in 2 weeks for those inquiring minds 🙂 It’s a neat website that allows you to find plenty of personalized items that you can design yourself or browse other people’s shops.
Many of you know I have a thing about reusable shopping tote bags. I found several that I liked including this one:
