New Years Eve! - Look for Something New Tomorrow

Funny how timing works.  We decided to go for a walk but went a little later than we normally would.  Just a little bit up the road is a farm with lots of cows but the cows are in a field off a bit from the road.  There is a house that is owned by the farm that is a little closer to the road.  Well, as we are getting near the house, out comes this crazy cow all by himself, running circles around the house.  Looking in the windows, kicking up his/her heels. Not sure if it was still inside the electrified fence or not. But it was having a fun old time all by itself.  And to think we would have missed all of that if we had have left 5 minutes earlier.  Timing - Huh!

And....timing is everything for me as well.  Tomorrow I launch my new Fargocat Shops site.  The other site was clunky and just not me.   The new site will allow me to update daily and you will be able to see everything I have for sale.  And, it's not ready yet, but a new blog banner is coming...designed by the one and only - Kristen Balmer!!
Yeah, Kristen is Yvonne's daughter and a wonderful graphic designer who mainly works in animation.  But as a favour to me, she is taking this on.  It should be ready in a couple of weeks so for now, you will see an pretty boring site. But, lots of Xmas sales!

Check back tomorrow for my new launch and some exciting Christmas Sales.  Wish I had a jumping cow, oh well.  Just picture it in your mind.

Happy New Year and thank you for all your wonderful patronage in 2010.  You made it a wonderful experience for me which I hope only to improve on in 2011.
Deborah, Fargo and Seven

Wednesday Already!

Turkey has finally been all eaten!  Also had a yummy feast of Chinese Food.  Visited friends which was lovely.  Lots of wonderful gifts. 

I am now hard at work at getting ready to share my new Shop Site.  On New Years Day I will be sharing it with you and I think you will find it exactly what you are looking for.
You will be able to see exactly what I have in stock and to order, you just send me an email or call and I can get everything out to you by mail or you can drop by to pick up.

You can still pay by Paypal but charges will apply or by cheque.  Stay tuned, I hope you will like the new site!

If you are planning on dropping by before the New Year, please give me a call as I have to run in to do some banking and I may be out.

Baking my Favourite - Homemade Lemon Pie

Here is what Seven was up to yesterday when Fargo was getting his picture taken!
The package was for them so I guess the catnip was a little enticing!
I just finished my pie crust and have to tackle the lemon filling, it's from scratch so takes a little longer, but well worth the effort.  We are (or I should say) Lawrence is cooking our turkey tonight.  Travelling to Bayers Lake tomorrow to have Xmas dinner with my brother and family, niece and her family.  Have you noticed I don't have to cook anything this year?  Hmmmmm, wonder what's up with that! (LOL)  Tonight we will enjoy a yummy turkey dinner and then enjoy another one tomorrow!

Merry Christmas to everyone and to my sister Annie in Ottawa, Delores in warm Phoenix and Norma in Toronto!  John,  I will see you tomorrow!

One Cat Posing for Pictures

You know you can never get two cats still so I took the opportunity when Fargo decided to pose for me!  And I added some Holiday Shine to my life.  Note the strands of blue in my hair, they are in there, sort of like, "Where's Waldo"  Sometimes a little bling is all you need to find the Holiday Cheer!

Merry Christmas to everyone!
Note the lack of bows and ribbon on presents - Seven would eat them like cat treats!

Blue Strands of Glitter in my Hair - Just 5 in All
Did not want to overdo it!

Tim Holtz Gingerbread Die!

The Tim Holtz Gingerbread Die is $18.00 and comes with the Rick Rack Die Trim as shown. I think it is super cute, only 1 in stock.  I used cork to cut mine out and it was super easy. Also used Black Soot Stickles for the eyes (also in stock).  The other tag was completed using Jovial printed paper and a little diecut and some ribbon. Extremely easy to do!
