My Engraved Picture!!!

Kitties, I was going to post about this tomorrow, on Manly Monday, but tomorrow is also Meow Like a Pirate Day, so I decided today would be the best day.     
A couple of weeks ago, I won a drawing on Beaded Tail's Blog for an engraved picture of myself on a wooden plaque.   Well, Mom and Dad were busy with the visitors for Labor Day weekend, but after the weekend was over, Mom exchanged several emails and samples of pictures with Edi, the wonderful artist.  In each case, Edi sent Mom back a sample of what the picture would look like when converted to the engraved form.      She ended up deciding on one of me lying on the deck (of course!) and yesterday, the man in the blue shorts delivered a box to our front porch with my engraved picture in it!     

As you can see, it is done on a wonderful plaque of honey-colored wood, and has my name engraved under my picture.     We are all so delighted with it!    If I say so myself, I look awfully handsome.    Mom feels it has really captured what I am like.

Kitties, if you want one for yourself, grab your Mom's plastic card and head on over to:
www.memoriesforlifesb.etsy.com.     The engraved pet portraits and human pictures are located under the section "Home Decor".      As you will see, Edi specializes also in unique custom made scrapbooks which spell out a word, such as Family, or a person's name.     I am trying to talk Mom into one that says Simba!   Mom also liked the laser engraved wooden coaster sets a lot.

Edi also has a blog - the url is www.memoriesforlifescrapbooks.blogspot.com .  Mom so appreciates artistic people, because she feels she has so little artistic creativity herself.

Many many thanks to Edi, and to Angel, Isabella and Sadie of Beaded Tail for hosting Edi's wonderful giveaway!!!!
