Caturday: Big cats like boxes, too!

This week's caturday is unofficially brought to you by Big Cat Rescue. I saw this video on Pinterest and it's one of the sweetest things I've ever seen!

Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the US dedicated to abused and abandoned big cats. One of their most recent efforts was in Kansas, where eight cats (and two skunks) were abandoned in small cages without food or water. Big Cat Rescue worked with the local sheriff's office and other non-profits like the Humane Society to save these animals and place them in Sanctuaries.

BCR has a whole mess of videos of their cats on their youtube channel, but this one is my favorite- a montage of big cats playing with cardboard boxes!!!

If you think this is an important issue and feel so inclined, you can donate via paypal on the BCR website, or you can give through purchasing from their shop- they have quite an array of cat-related items and gifts for cat lovers!

Like I said, this post was UNOFFICIALLY brought to you by Big Cat Rescue. They have no idea I exist :)

More wine charms!

I'm having some nice me-time here at home. I've been bouncing around between laundry, crafting, reading, dishes, and working on the photos for this post all afternoon, ADD-style.

That light box came in handy again today.

I made these a while ago and I love them. Each button is different. But this project required making custom D-rings for most of the buttons- what a pain that was!

This set of four is Christmasy... Yes, I am aware it is june. I can't wait to use them in six months, though!

Here's another set with vintage buttons.

Tomorrow is another day without work! Hopefully I'll be as productive as I was today.
