postheadericon Just Too Cute

“It’s tough life for a busy kitten”
“How nice of Pops to provide me with a kitty bed!”

Just had to share the kitty cuteness from the ranch.  This little guy has pretty much taken over the place, including one of the hats that got left within his reach.  He follows Adolph the dog around everywhere and likes to nap beside him – anywhere.

postheadericon Shutterfly Card Giveaway

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:

(sorry for my crooked photo 🙂
Pretty neat huh?  Thank you cards aren’t all you can create with Shutterfly.  They have an amazing assortment of high quality cards that you can personalize with your own photos.  Holiday Cards, Christmas Photo Cards, and Save the Date Cards are just a few of the choices.  Be sure to check out their site to see what you can come 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!

*Shutterfly has contacted me and they won’t be providing 10 cards per winner. 
They are giving each winner:….. 12 FREE PHOTO CARDS!
Thank you to our friends at!!!

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.

My .70 cent lemon tree – thriving!
My hydrangeas drying in the “man cave”
Looks kinda pretty like that!


Happy little red flower

Daisy-like blooms

postheadericon Christmas Shopping in July

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..

For Mr. MoonCat, I’m looking at a folding knife like this one:
Pops is probably going to get a pocket knife similar to the one below:
Mrs. MoonCat is most likely going to get this beauty:
The handle is made of 100% post consumer “Paperstone”.  Practical and pretty – I must have it. 🙂  See how easy it is to get off track when shopping for gifts for others.  But in my defense…today’s my birthday.  So look to the right to see what I’m getting myself…..he he
 A little vocabulary lesson ~ I do enjoy words after all:
  • knives is the plural of knife
  • knifes is the act of stabbing or knifing someone
Just so you know….

postheadericon New Name for a Wedgie

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.
