Broken heart


Friday was yet another very sad day for me. I left work to get parts around 2pm and when I returned at around 3:30 pm I found my cat Motley laying dead in front of my desk. I have no idea what happened, maybe a heart attack... I was petting him just before I left and he was fine. I tried to revive him but he was gone... I am beyond heartbroken. We lost Spooky to old age a few months ago and the cat never stopped looking for him.

  I hope they are together at the rainbow bridge. :(

 On a happier day a couple of weeks ago. 
Motty, as I called him came and sat with me everyday after lunch.

 I love my new bed Mom, it's in my second favourite place, on your desk. 

Before I got him a bed for my desk he insisted the "Out going mail" box was for him only. :)

I miss my sweet boy already. I don't know how or why he was taken from me. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around it... and I keep waiting to see him in his empty bed on my desk.. or having him jump on my lap wanting cuddles.
Motley came into my life as a stray 7 years ago. He was starving, beat up with a broken tail, missing chunk of ear and face wounds. He had ear mites and worms... Someone had dumped him at my parents, where I was still living at the time. I could not bear to see yet another dumped cat eaten by a coyote or run over by a car. I packed him up into my truck and off we went and I had an office companion from that day on. He never tried to get out, he never caused any problems or did anything naughty. He was my perfect little angel and we loved one another very much. I look at his photos and see love in his eyes, just as I saw everyday that I spent with him. 
I love you and miss you so much. I hope you have found Spooky at the Rainbow bridge and you guys are trying to steal the best spot on the sleeping bed from each other.

I can see the humorous side of things and enjoy the fun when it comes; but look where I will, there seems to me always more sadness than joy in life.

Going to be a VERY busy few weeks.

So this is what I've got lined up for the fall season. I hope you can all make it to at least one of the events (and since 2 are online you have no excuse ;) lol) as I'm SUPER excited!

First off is the Halloween Trick or Treat Studio Tour. I am SO excited about this one. As most of you know Halloween is my favorite Holiday and I am so looking forward to showing you the very special pieces I've been working on. 


 Next is the Edmonton Doll Club show. I missed the show last year but worked very hard the last few months and I already have most of the critters made for the show. I am very much looking forward to spending the day chatting it up with collectors and... of course shopping! lol. I hope if you are in the Edmonton area on the day of the show you will pop in to say hello.



 And, the last show of the year, The Teddies World Wide show. I am very thrilled to be taking part in this show again. Last year it was loads of fun and this year is going to be VERY special as I will be making some very special miniatures.



So as you can see things are going be pretty busy the next few weeks/months.. lol. Today I am making new tags and cards.. but I think it might be time to get outside and enjoy part of the day, even if it's just sitting on the steps :)
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer weekend.
Hugs,
Melanie
