  1. I've been participating now for about 4 months and love getting crafty creations from all over! A huge thanks to whomever put this together in the beginning. Since I tend to be identified with cats of all sorts (translate - crazy cat lady!) I shouldn't need to say how much I love the Curious Cat. :-D
