Update On My New Shop

You know…there is SOOOOOOOO much to do to get a shop opened. My goal is to not allow my new etsy shop to look like it is just some things thrown into an online shop, I want it to look great. I’ve put so much into it and I have such high hopes for my little cozy loft!!
I’ve completed several more projects and checked those off my list. My avatar is now completed and I’m feeling good about it. Now, I just have to get some more actual PRODUCTS finished! Honestly, it looks like a force of nature blew through my home right now. Should anyone knock on my door, I couldn’t invite them in! Talk about embarrassing!!! Slowly but surely I’m getting things knocked off my “to-do” list, but I’m not anywhere near where I thought I’d be by today!!
My plan is to open the etsy shop “thecozyloft” on Saturday, April 5th and have wonderful things inside. For opening day, I plan on having some exciting promotions going on and I’m hoping that also helps with getting folks to visit.
So far, so good, though. Since the loss of our kitty, I’ve been pouring all of my heart into my work and I do hope it shows when I start listing things on the 5th. I do plan on giving anyone who’s reading my blog a sneak peek before then. 😉

Sad Update On Our Kitty

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Any of you who know me knows that I’m never up early in the morning. I woke up about 4:00 a.m. Monday morning to check on our kitty cat and she had passed away. For this, I am so very thankful to God. She went peacefully, at home, and with us.
I’ve never, ever understood how someone could put an animal – a member of the family – to sleep. Although I’ve read so many things about folks doing this, it was always something I felt I would never consider. I read that pet owners say “you just know” when you have to do it. Now, I truly understand how someone could come to that conclusion.

My heart doesn’t feel heavy about her now. Although I’m sad and broken in spirit, I feel mended somewhat to know that she’s not suffering. We knew that she was hanging on for us and we knew she suffered for it.

It’ll be hard to deal with her not being around after so many years and I already miss her.
Anyway, for any of you who might have read my entry on Sunday and helped us pray for her, I thank you for listening to my thoughts and for caring.
Thought you might like to see a picture of her. This was taken a few months ago when she was feeling great and high on catnip! She’s lying on our floor exhausted staring at her catnip ball. We had soooooo much fun with catnip and that little kitty cat!
