I hope your week has been good. Mine started off well, then seemed to go a little down-hill towards the end.
Early in the week we noticed that Jazz, our gorgeous tabby and white cat appeared to have something wrong with his left back leg. It looked as though he had cut one of his toes and initially we were able to bathe it for him. Towards the end of the week, he seemed to be in more pain and when I touched his paw he lashed out - very un-Jazz like, so we whipped him off to the vet. We were amazed to find out that the problem was that Jazz has a flea-allergy - I know this is very common nowadays in cats - which has affected three of his toes! Poor Jazz, no wonder he was in pain, but two injections, flea potions and a large bill later he is a much happier chap. Daisy showed her support by being poorly today - however, she is also much better now.
Hopefully next week will see things back to the normal calm life I lead (I wish). As mentioned in my last two blog posts, from Friday, 3 February I am posting another blog post - not me this time, but you. I already have one crafter posting on the first guest-blog date, so am now hoping to encourage other crafters to post on thefollowing Fridays. Although I have a list of topics, it would be great to have suggested topics from fellow crafters - so if you are game to take part and want to talk about something, please do contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org - can you but guest blog post in the subject line? My suggested topics are:
What inspires you to create
Do you still make (and sell) the item(s) that set you on the road to being a professional crafts-person
How do you motivate yourself
Is blogging a good communication platform
What does handmade mean to you
