I'm so relieved that you liked what I sent, jexxican!!! I'll totally send you a link for the video on making those knotted tug toys, you just make them with old jeans, and they're pretty easy, but seem pretty durable? You'll have to let me know how long they last with your pup.
Sorry I didn't post sooner, I got my awesome loot from jexxican yesterday, and only just now found time to post pics.
First off is this awesome (felt?) catnip kitty toy and a little bag of catnip. I didn't get a fantastic picture of the toy, because Squish was too busy going nuts.
Here's what I got before she took off with the mouse:
That was for love your pets day.
Then, for National Bird Feeding Month, I got this very cute (and recycled! bonus!) birdfeeder. I may have to make more of these and decorate them with my daughter as gifts for the grandparents!
And finally, my favorite item was for children's authors and illustrators day. It's a fantastic sewn book bag with the Very Hungry Caterpillar on it. We've already been playing with the different textures on the fabric swatches. It's so great! We love it!
Thanks so much, jexxican!
