Taco Tuesday - the Prince of Prints


What is that terrible noise?

Oh, it's the machine that spits out paper for me to play with.
Hello, Paper-Spitter-Outer.

If I rub my face on you, will you spit out more paper for me?
No? Hmmph.

It's okay, I'm sure Taco and the Paper-Spitter-Outer will make up on another day.

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

Excellent at playing fetch in a lake...not so great at fetch on land.

I sent this on out a while ago.

Taco Tuesday - I'm almost two!

March 22nd is Taco's birthday. 
He'll be two years old. 
If you want to send him a birthday card, he's pretty good about sending thank you cards. For a cat.

mouseketeers (please don't sue me, Disney)

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

Apparently I was in a rush to send this one out, because I didn't enter him in my little book.

But that's all right, since I kept photographic evidence of the note on the back.
Actually, I think I might like snapping a photo of the flip side even better than typing it up, later.  Or I'm very lazy.  But really, I do still love snapshots of handwriting.

And I also wanted to brag just a little bit about some new-to-me stamps I just got.  They're 34 cents, which is the current postcard rate, and there are 50 different designs, one for each state, in the style of the classic postcards that start out with "Greeting from..."
They're bright and fun for my eyeballs. (I like them more than the new hummingbird stamps!)
If you are mystified about where old but unused postage comes from, check out ebay. This one was a pretty good deal, because I am pretty adamant about not paying a whole lot more than face value.  Starving artists have to keep track of their cash, after all.

nightmare stag from Katzi

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

This Hannibal Lecter inspired beast is from the brain of Katzi.
She wrote that she couldn't resist dressing him like the classiest character she knows.
And he does look dapper.

Katzi also runs the Creepy Hearts Club, where she sends you creepy hearts and you photograph them to share on instagram and tumblr.
Did I participate? Of course. Did I start an instagram account specifically to participate? Yep. Unapologetically.

Taco Tuesday - how to drink water

Excuse me?
I have important kitty business to attend to.


Hold on, I've got to get into position.

Okay, okay. Turn the faucet on. I'm ready.

Oh, thanks.

Taco Tuesday: professional cat napper

Taco says that it is very important to remember

to stretch between marathon cat naps
because you might accidentally pull a muscle (if not properly stretched).

eager to please

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

Jack Russell came home to his wife one Valentine's evening, wearing a special costume.
He was hoping to spice up their love life, but it turned out that her nickname for Jack - "puppy" - was largely metaphorical  & in no way expressed any latent furry desires.

I sent this one out to Lynn a while ago.
Made at the end of January.
