This 'n' That 'n' Linky Dinks

I mentioned a week or so ago that Nichole of Lapdog Creations is having a contest. Go on over there and check it out - it's for a cause that is near and dear to my heart - homeless animals! There are multiple ways to enter, one of which is to make snuggles and donate them to an animal shelter. I saw on Criquette's blog that she made some really cool no sew snuggles! She even posted a tutorial on how to make them, and she made it look so easy I had to give it a try. I bought some of this: And in a few hours turned it into this:
That is Emma surrounded by four soft and snuggly, well, snuggles. Tara wanted to have her picture taken, too.
To the untrained eye, it might look like she is bored with this, but not true. She is more than happy to sit and model the snuggles for as long as mommy needs her.

Hey, get back here! Nope, she said "Enough is enough...I'm outta here!" Oh, well. These snuggles are going to Tabby's Place where my niece Jen works. It's a cage-free cat sanctuary for around 100 cats. It's a wonderful place, and only about 20 minutes north of a great yarn store called the Wooly Lamb in Pennington, NJ. I'm just sayin'.

Anyway, just because I think this post need yet another link, here is a link to Donna Lee's "What You Think On Grows" blog. She is a great mom with two wonderful girls, and I've enjoyed her blog for a while now. Today she posted one of those blog quizzes, and for the fun of it I clicked on the link and filled it out, too. I usually don't bother posting the results, but I had to this time. The results said I's a "Duty Fulfiller" (not exactly glamorous) and I prefer productive hobbies, like knitting. Well, it actually said "knittings", but in such cases allowances must be made. It also said I'm an "ISTJ", but I have no idea what that is. I hope it's not something profane. I mean, my mom reads this blog...

You Are An ISTJ

The Duty Fulfiller

You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done.
You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knittings.
Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you.
Conservative and down-to-earth, you hardly ever do anything crazy.

In love, you are loyal and honest. If you commit yourself to someone, then you're fully committed.
For you, love is something that happens naturally. And you don't need romantic gestures to feel loved.

At work, you remember details well and are happy to take on any responsibility.
You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer.

How you see yourself: Decisive, stable, and dependable

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, conservative, and egotistical

Great job on the snuggles - they weren't hard, were they. I had to laugh about the archaic-type wording that was used on the quiz results - sounds very Victorian and proper. but I agree that you do make very nice "knittings".

I love those snuggleS!

Great snuggles! I will have to try them and donate to my shelter. I don't think you are boring at all and Tara and Emma look way cool with the snuggles. Oliver says to say hi to his best babes.

ISTJ is your Myers-Briggs personality type. ISTJ stands for "introverted, sensing, thinking, judging". See:
