Little Cats On The Scratchboard

I've been scratchin' like crazy on little 2"x2" scratchboards that I will either turn into pinbacks or fridge magnets, or both. These still need some color on them. I'm out of town and away from my inks and such, so scratchin' is all I'm doing for the next two weeks.
The Cat Scratchin' book is in the capable hands of Liz Lester, the designer. I've sent off some final edits and changes and as soon as I see those we will pull the trigger and send the files off to the printer. Everything is on schedule and that makes me happy.
There are over seventy cats and their stories--I have read and re-read each story a ga-gillion times to proof and they are just as engaging, sad, funny, and sweet as they were the first time. This is going to be a great book, and I'm proud of it. I'm also very grateful for all who participated in the project, in whatever way--y'all are appreciated!
The above pins/magnets will be available (or some like them) in my etsy shop and also at the various holiday shows I plan on selling at. Price will be somewhere around $8.00 each. Not a bad price for a little original I think.
Ok, even though I'm on vacation I need to get a little scratchin' in. Later cats!
