Emma Lea is growing up!

The little bottle fed kitten, Emma Lea, is now fully weaned and eating solid foods on her own. She's gained a LOT of weighed since we rescued her. She was a tiny 13 ounces when we got her and she now weighs one pound 8 ounces.

I got some photos of her today but they aren't very good because she was running all over my office and I had to use the flash so the camera took too long to take the photos. But, you get the idea.

Her eyes are turning from baby blue to green.

And I love her markings!

Let the Shopping Begin!

Today is Black Friday, officially the start of the holiday shopping season. I know some people love the challenge of standing in line in the cold waiting for the store to open and hoping to score big on some door buster deal. For those of you who would prefer the sanity of shopping from home, please consider shopping from American online sellers, especially small independent sellers and artists.

I am having a 15% off sale in my Split Rock Ranch ArtFire store. I know 15% off isn't much, especially when you consider the huge deals that the big box stores offer today. But, my mark-up and profit isn't nearly what theirs is so I am offering what I can afford to offer. Just use LETTHESHOPPINGBEGIN at checkout to get the 15% discount on your entire purchase. Discount does not apply to shipping. The coupon sale starts today and ends Monday night, November 28th. Happy shopping!

In the store I have handdyed fibers, both loose locks and rovings, fiber blend batts for spinning or felting (blended right here on the ranch with my hand crank drum carder), felting needles and supplies, and felting kits (both beginner and deluxe). I also have a variety of my OOAK original design scarves, cowls, shawls and accessories.

Let the shopping begin!!!

New Kitten!

We haven't had foster kittens for a couple of months here and I was having kitten withdrawals. A couple of weeks ago our daughter called asking if we could please take this tiny little kitten that had been found at our son's house. My daughter-in-law found this little kitten almost frozen stiff in their yard so she brought her into the house and laid her on towels on zip-lock bags filled with warm water. Our son-in-law went and picked the kitten up from them (my son is allergic to cats so they could not keep her.) We met our daughter and her husband halfway and picked up the kitten. She is adorable. She was maybe four weeks old at the time and I was afraid that she might not make it. But, she took to the bottle right away and is now eating semi-solid foods and growing like crazy. She was 13.1 ounces when we got her and she now weighs 1 pound 2 oz as of tonight. We named her Emma Lea - she has two "M"s on her forehead so I wanted a name with two Ms in it.

Just look at the beautiful mackerel tabby markings on this little girl!
And look at this adorable little tummy!!
I have an old alpaca slipper that our foster kittens always love to snuggle in. Emma loves it, too!
