Happy Birthday, Revco!

I have a teenager now! Revco just turned 13. That's him above, hopping up and down, trying to grab one of the treats I baked for him. It's a new recipe that seems to be a hit! Pain Faux Viende Avec Herbs de Provence...the recipe will be featured on the EtsyVeg team blog soon. They're very hearty, though low in fat. A nice soft and chewy treat. In the mean time, take a look at the team site: http://www.etsyveg.blogspot.com/ Basically, it's a group of people who run stores on Etsy.com who get together to support each other and do some good for animals. Etsy is a great place to shop. If you received a gift from me this holiday season, it's extremely likely that I bough it on Etsy.com!
Speaking of stuff I'm doing on the web, I wanted to show off the card I made for the Simon Says Stamp "Hot Chocolate" Challenge. The theme is pink/brown and of course, the beverage mentioned. I just got this house mouse stamp so I had to use it. Mmm. Donuts. Is there anything they can't do?
Aaaaannnd, I'm super busy and up really late working on cards for a couple of rescue fund raisers. One is a craft show in the UK and the other is the Vegan Sample Bag fund rasier I contributed to a few months ago. Basically Etsy.com stores donate free samples to be put together in pretty hand decorated totes and sold to raise money for an animal rescue. The previous one I was in raised money for a sanctuary for homeless pigs. I've heard that these totes are really cool and a genuine bargain. I know I always try to include a few nice goodies from my store for each buyer. Check it out! http://www.etsy.com/shop/vegansamples

And, ahem, my store: http://scrappyrat.etsy.com

Well, I'd best get back to work if I'm going to get these cards made, packaged, and on their way!

P.S. One week till my 4th poetry book is released! So soon!
