The good cat mommy

Tiger was bleeding from the urinary tract and needs this medicine. Annalise is the only person Tiger likes, so it's up to her to give it to her. She did a great job!  Don't judge me because there are no bed sheets. They are being washed.

Jewelry making win

I ordered these Yin/Yangs from Oriental Trade a while ago, and they were advertised as pendants. They are far too small to be pendants. I was looking across my stash the other day, and I realized how nice they'd look on these ear hooks. They are now in my etsy shop for $3 a pair, and 11 pairs available. 

I think my next move is Macramé. I have A LOT of different kinds of string and cord. 

Jewelry making epic fail

I bought this hole puncher. I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to try and make a hole in blue Botswana agate. It just made it split in half. Botswana agate is striated. Duh. Oh well, now I have two. To wire wrap.

Three fictional characters that describe you

This is a Facebook challenge right now, to post pictures of three fictional characters that represent you. It took me a while. I finally came up with:
The mother of Judging Amy (Tyne Daly)
Mary from "Saved:The Movie" 
Diane Lane's character from "Under the Tuscan Sun".

Requesting excommunication

I have pondered this. I have pondered writing a letter to the archdiocese of my parents' denomination to request excommunication. The need to do it more officially is more real now that "just not showing up". Evan's death has taught me just how strict they are on who may have a funeral and who may not; who may be present at the final resurrection and who may not. A lot of my questions are answered with "I don't know". But, they do know. They just don't want to say, because it's bad PR. 
If I died before my parents, they would go straight to their church, and I would be denied a funeral. I already know this. 
But to funeralize someone is human nature. Even animals are seen gathering around a dead one, appearing to be in mourning. To deny that has no affect on the deceased person, but is emotionally abusive to those they leave behind. 
Then I found online my parents' church's stance on people who voluntarily request this. There were such horrible things said, that I cannot repeat them here. It's best, after reading that, to just leave it alone. It would make life difficult for my parents. 

Judge not, lest ye be not judged.

I have updated the description with a video to learn more about Child Advocates. This will go on until December 21st. 

Philanthropy sells!
