Sorry for all the caps up there but I AM EXCITED! This marks the end of the first year of notacrazycatlady and also the conclusion of my post a day challenge.
For those of you from the beginning, you know that I have boldly accepted the challenge (from WordPress.com and I suppose myself) to post every day. Now, being that I am a teacher and don’t always have free time on my hands (ok, that’s a huge lie) and have gone on some vacations and whatnot, this proved to be a bit difficult sometimes. But I loved challenging myself and have made some great strides in my cattooning.
Poor Adam had to deal with me jolting out of bed at 11:30 more than once or sitting on my phone trying to get a phone cartoon done when we were out with friends when I forgot that I had a post to complete. And despite all this, he surprised me today with THIS!!!
Yes, you saw correctly. My man got me a bottle of champagne, a two-pound bag of Twizzlers, and a hand-crafted, hand-selected anniversary picture of his favorite notacrazycatlady cattoons. This might be better than our real anniversary!
Now, don’t think this means that notacrazycatlady is kaput. I will be posting at least 2 times a week, if not more. I just don’t think the everyday thing will happen. It was a great experience and I love creating something every day, but with the Etsy store and the fact that thinking about posting everyday sometimes made me cry (not really), I will be trying to test out a few more new adventures. But keep on checking back, because I’ll be here!
As a bonus treat today, I will share with you a little something Adam and I did on our honeymoon. This was pre-notacrazycatlady but post-me-starting-to-cattoon-a-lot.
We got matching Duncan and Smudge tattoos. Yes. Yes, we did. And we call them cattoos. Well, I don’t know if he does, but I do.
Now this kind of looks like it sucks. And it was supposed to be a little “sketchy”…not like sketchy sketchy, but like a sketch. It’s all mellowed out now and blended nicely. This was literally the day after we got them. Yes, Adam has the same cat tattoo on his ankle, too. I’ll spare him the embarrassment and just use my leg instead, ha!
Thank you to all you not crazy cattoon loving fans, friends, and family and I look forward to sharing more cattoons and stories with you in the future and hearing you share your stories with me, too!
