I envy people who are talented at arts and crafts. I used to knit in high school and college and actually created some pretty amazing sweaters (that I still own), but once I started living with cats, knitting became challenging, what with the constant batting at the moving needles. The only way I could have knitted was behind closed doors, and since I refuse to exclude my cats from any of my activities, that just wasn’t going to happen. Sadly, I either have no talent in other areas of arts and crafts, or if I do, I haven’t discovered it yet.
Hilary Cairns of The Pineapple Cats only learned Needle Felting a year ago, but when you look at her felted animal art and pet pillows, you’d think she’s been doing it all her life. Her Etsy Shop is filled with whimsical creations that will be sure to bring a smile.
Hilary has offered one of her cute cat pillows for a giveaway to one lucky reader. I’m guessing that most of us obey the sentiment expressed on the pillow. Read the instructions to enter carefully, they’re a little different from our usual ones.
To enter the giveaway, tell me in a comment whether you do arts and crafts, what you do, and whether you cats help you. Don’t worry, admitting to no talent, like I did, does not disqualify you from winning! For an additional chance to win, tweet about this giveaway or share on Facebook, and post the link in a separate comment. This giveaway is open to readers in the United States and Canada and ends Thursday, August 30.
