You remember that crazy owl I cartooned from a crazy owl photo? Here's the painting version. My friend made an innocuous comment on Facebook about how he would hang the cartoon up in his house....so I decided to just do it. He'd better hang it up next to the crystal bear holding a heart we... Continue Reading →
Dangit! A good friend is in town so I got distracted. But they're on a different time zone, so I'm going with that.
My little brother and sister got remote controlled helicopters and they were a big hit for everyone to play with. However, JoJo the dog also found them....intriguing. I can't really say how JoJo felt because he fervently began barking at it, following it, retreating from it, AND madly wagging his tail at it. I can't quite determine what... Continue Reading →
This is a post live from a family holiday party! I am a leaning cat because I am a bit tipsy, haha. There are a lot of family members here and I don't want to eavesdrop on their conversations so that's why I made them say "blah blah"...not that they just blah blah it up. 🙂
Ok, this totally sucks but I did it in 10 seconds on my phone because I'm at my aunt's house and I fourier to do one earlier. But I really saw the fattest squirrel ever today. 12 pounds easy. There it is. Sorry my phone couldn't zoom fast enough. Dang technology.
So yesterday my brother and I talked about tobogganing and I thought it might be fun if Duncan and Smudge went with me.
So it's late and I hadn't done a cattoon yet and I made a silly one about sleeping in and then I went to put it in the blog post and it had somehow not been saved and this is the second or so time this has happened so I made a cartoon about pouting... Continue Reading →
At work we had an ugly sweater contest. I decided to make my own. Here is my recipe for a delightful ugly sweater, which was actually a sweatshirt. Get a plain ol' sweatshirt (I got mine in the men's section at Target for $7.50!). Use puffy paint to create goofy looking snowmen who are sad... Continue Reading →
So I am in the middle of making an incredibly awesome holiday sweater, which should be ready for a post tomorrow I think, so here is a dumb drawing of a mini me getting super excited for this gum I tried today which totally tasted like apple pie. My fantasy of living in Willy Wonka's... Continue Reading →
So my Aunt Kathy was in town not too long ago and we took a family photo. Unbeknownst to me, apparently it was a bunny-ear-required photo and I didn't get the memo. I can't share the actual photo since I don't have it (Aunt Kathy, if you're reading this, send that thing my way!) so... Continue Reading →
So I was showing students this neat online whiteboard website and they asked me to draw Santa. So I did. Comments included, "He's creepy," "It's good but it's not good" (maybe 'cause it's creepy?), and "I like it." I guess that isn't so bad. Thanks, 7th graders; your 12- and 13-year old insights are invaluable and... Continue Reading →
Duncan totally winks at me. It might just be a one-sided blink but I like to think it's his way of saying hello and that he loves me.
Yes, I'll admit it. Sometimes Adam and I make up songs about mundane everyday things. Today Adam was singing about the cats. Specifically Duncan. Pretty much because Duncan was looking ridiculous and desperate but as if he was trying to hide it. We decided that it was his way of getting food since he knows... Continue Reading →
Adam's parents' cat does not really...um...fit in with our cats. They are a bit brutish with him. However, we had a breakthrough with the cats. They were all amicably near each other within a foot when Adam and I gave them all snacks. Could this be the beginning of a change around here?
So today turned out pretty awesome. Sorry for no cattoon but this was exciting. I got to go to my bff Sarah's community band concert (haha, I know. I totally am joining soon so there'll be funny cattoons on that topic coming up in the nearish future) and THEN I come home to this! What... Continue Reading →
So this was an interesting weekend. I got to go see the ballet The Nutcracker with Ken (yay!) because Lee was sick (boo!) and I went in his place. So then we found out this morning that Lee was sick not because of a stomach-bug but because of a stomach fight. His appendix was... Continue Reading →
So I offered a mini-contest to whomever got the 100th fan of notacrazycatlady.com's Facebook page. Thanks to Connie and Betsy who made that happen! Their prize? THIS CARTOON! Wooo! Anyway, here's what they had to say about this.... "Here is our 100th member picture choice! Kind of a crazy one, but this is my mom and... Continue Reading →
The other day Smudge was climbing on me to get to some food on a tv tray - way to go Duncan teaching your brother dumb tricks and bad habits. Adam tried to gently dissuade him with a wee shove but Smudge wasn't ready to budge. So he just casually pierced my fleshy quad with... Continue Reading →
So I'm really into this video game, L.A. Noire. If you don't know about it, it's a pretty revolutionary game where they did all this crazy technology stuff to get real actors to act the parts of the characters and therefore have remarkably life-like game people. Because of this, you have to read the faces... Continue Reading →
Ok, I give in. Mostly because Adam called me a wimp in my comments. Boo hoo - now I'm crying but when I'm done I'm gonna show you and post that dumb painting! That'll show you.... Here is the painitng of Mr. Smudge. It's on his favorite chair to add to the realism. I know... Continue Reading →
So I found this crazy owl baby picture on Reddit and decided it tickled my fancy. So I didn't quite get it right, but I still think it's pretty funny. Adam says it's a little too dark for my normal style but I like it. I guess a crazy owl baby can spread its... Continue Reading →
So I have been busy these days because I think I want to start going to craft shows....make that a craft show....I've never been before. But I've made baby onesises and cool little magnets, and painted stools for friends and family before, so I figured why not try it out with strangers? I... Continue Reading →
