Monday Miscellany

I am not even sure where to start. Neither does Boodie.

The #NipClub Holiday Bazaar was awesome! If you were there, you know, but if you weren’t, you missed the opportunity to hang out with friends and shop at some really great stores! But it’s not too late. There’s still lots of time to do holiday shopping, and I think you will get many gift ideas by browsing through the vendors at the NipClub blog post. You’ll find gifts for your cats, pretty jewelry, great art and more!

The good news is I sold some calendars! The not-so-great news is that they were all bought on Zazzle, which means I still have 11 calendars here that I need to sell! So if you are still thinking of buying one (or more!), please get them here!

I also have copies of my second, highly-acclaimed Dear Sparkle book here, and when you buy it directly from me, you can request a PAWtograph! Or you can also buy a copy from Baby Patches at Nip and Bones, and I can PAWtograph those too. Also, Nip and Bones is actually a lot better with international shipping than I am. By the way, read the reviews on the Nip and Bones site — they are very cool!

I do want to mention one cool deal on Zazzle: today only you get 40% off on shirts and mugs with code 12DAILYDEAL6. So this is a great opportunity to get one of my new Destroy T-shirts. The design is made especially for dark colors, and it comes in a bunch of different styles! Check out my mugs too!

Blog of the Year 2012 - 3 stars

I also want to mention that I got the Blog of the Year Award from three friends: Simba, Sherlock Ash and Traveler and the fish who are keeping Diamond’s blog going! Thanks to all of you, and I’ve now awarded a star back to each of you. I am trying to think of who hasn’t gotten this award yet — or who, at least has not gotten it more than once — and it’s not a big list! And of course there are probably bloggers I am unintentionally leaving out. But here is who I came up with — I think I will leave it at four:

Pricilla (I bet she will pass it along to some fellow goats!)
Cat Wisdom 101
Cory (Since she was on blogcation, I think she missed out on some of this)

At least I know my catnip is getting watered.

Other than that, it has been rainy here and rather dreary. As you can tell by my ears, I am not happy with the lack of sunbeams. But I can’t be totally annoyed because the rain has also kept my human from chasing after me with her camera and the latest horror she brought home from Petco…

I think it would look MUCH better on Binga! Just sayin'

    Oh dear! That hat looks like trouble to us too! Use your authority to make Binga or Boodie wear it. Have a great week!

  2. says

    Sparkle, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your advice in your pawesome book! Even my Mommy who calls herself a cat expert learned a thing or two :) I wish more humans would take the time to get to know their kitties.
    many purrs,
    Sammy =^..^=

    Glad you sold some of the calendars and that the party was a success. We just don’t have any green papers. Too many cats to feed. Have a great day.

  4. Katie Bella says

    Sparkle! That hat is not good enough for your beautiful head. I can’t believe it would even attempt to sit on your head. Ain’t gonna happen.

  5. says

    Well thank Cod you’re not actually WEARING that green hat. I think your human should put it on and have her picture taken. ; )

    Congrats on a successful #NipClub Bazaar!

    Is that an ELF hat? It looks more like a St. Paddy’s Day hat. The calendar Pop bought arrived today. He didn’t buy it on Zazzle. I can’t wait till he gets home and opens it. I know Aunt Pauline and Katie, Jinx and Nikki will love it.

  7. says

    Well, my mom knows better than to get wearables for me (plus, she says she’d have to shop in the “Husky” department, whatever that’s supposed to mean), but when she went to Petsmart this morning she was very tempted to get a little torti! Thankfully it was way too early for the adoption people to be there.

  8. says

    Sparkle, What the Sam Hill **IS** that, uh, “thing”? It looks like it came from some kind of out of season Leprechaun, or possibly someone really drunk last St. Paddy’s day left it in a bar or something. She isn’t thinking about putting that thing on YOU, is she??? ::shudder::

  9. says

    Sparkle, the green hat does not look good. you need to bring the dog in on this one 😉 Concats on the award and on the successful sales. We still need to scoop up one of your calendars…hopefully our mom will get it together before we miss out!

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, HOllie
