Ok, got great news and really the baddest news you can get.

Let's start wit the bad news. I have a leak in my appartment since last Saturday and I so do not like it!! My lower neighbour came up and told me she had water at her ceiling, so not good for me. But will not go into details... I'm really hoping everything will go alright with it as right now I don't like it anymore, specially with insurance!!!!!
The good news...

Finally went to the vet today. I have one down the block, so thought that was pretty cool. Last Monday I went there and they told me I needed an appointment for the Jet and Gizmo so I could go home and make one. Last week I phoned them a couple of times and yesterday I tried it for the last time, but no response at all!!! So I really thought: What if there's really something wrong with them, then I can't reach the vet!!!
So I phoned another one nearby, about a 10 min. drive (loads of trafficlights...., by bike I'm there within 5 minutes :) ) and they had some time this afternoon. Yeah!!!

So this afternoon I put Jet and Gizmo in the travelbox and went by car to the vet. They didn't know what was happening..hehe... For me it was really strange to go there, as I've practically been there only once... for passing away my eldest cat. So that wasn't a nice thing to remember about the vet... really worried :)

When I came in, I was shocked about the great atmosphere. Really friendly, loads of flyers about all different things the animals can get and about precaution and stuff.
I needed to give my information and also the names of the cats. The assistent told me they were "tortoise/turtle" cats, looking at their fur. She also told me normally those cats are always females, so I told her I thought that was also the case, but the vet needed to look at it.
People came in and were really cool about my cats! *yahoo!!* Asking me how old they were and stuff. It felt so good to talk about them since the last couple of days haven't been my most fave ones...
And then I was called by the vet.
She checked them, their eyes, ears, teath, stomache and also their gender!! *big smile*
She said everything is great. Nothing to worry about, only flees. I told her I also noticed them and asked her if they had some medicine, and they did, so bought it after I left.
She also give them an injection for catdiseases. Need to go back in 3 weeks time. Then I will also have them chipped.
They then will be registered and when I loose them and someone finds them, that person can go to a vet to check where the cat is from. I don't need it at my place as they will not go outside, but might need it at P.P.'s house, as I'm trying to let them out of the house there.

Oh, I forgot about their gender...hehe...
But here's the big news:
I have 2 sisters!! hahaha... So not a brother and sister, but two female cats!!!
I always told myself I wanted a female if I ever got a cat, and now I got two!! So my prediction was right, they are females! *YEAH!!!*
So now I have to mail the last owner of Jet and Gizmo to tell them they're females..hahaha...
Wonder how they react.

Well... have to go, but have to tell you 3 things:
1. (don't know if I posted this before...)
A great friend of mine also wants to start scrapbooking so we have to pick a date to start doing this.
2. Did some major sales scrapbookshopping at a warehouse in Amsterdam last weekend. Went their on Saturday with my bf and went back Sunday!!! Yeah.. I'm mad, but I got some great albums (like 12x12 now for only EUR 5,00 instead of EUR 27 in the shops!!!), great papers, loads of stickers and loads of great Prima flowers which I gave some to my mother as she really likes them.
Bought a great black All My Memories handbag on Saturday and a red one on Sunday. You can see the black one at the photo. Right now there are photos of Jet and Gizmo in it.
3. Will go to a scrapweekend in November:http://www.scrap-a-ganza.com/
Been there last June and I really enjoyed myself, now I only have to persuade a niece of mine to come with me! That would be so much fun!!!

Anyways... will leave you with some photos..hahahahah

Take care!!!
This is what I bought on Saturday. Bought loads of albums on Sunday and some more paper (can we ever have enough???)..
Can I ever have enough flowers?? Don't think so!!! See that look on my face! Really proud to get this glass as there were only a couple of people who were able to get one, and there were loads, and I mean loads of people who wanted one to! When I came home I saw I already had one of these..hahaha
I have two acrobats!! I left my bike in my kitchen this morning and Gizmo went on top of my steering-wheel and Jet just followed. Gizmo is a bit handier in jumping and stuff....hehe, but Jet was sitting on the tyre!!
Here we have miss Gizmo (named after Gizmo from The Gremlins, always liked that cute animal!). Gizmo has some lightbrown above her eyes.
Here we have Jet (named after Jet from the Freggles, a famous tv show with puppets I always watched). She looks the most like her mother, she has a black head with some brown. Did you notice her undermouth has 2 colors??

Jet absolutely loves water!!! Last week I showered and Gizmo came in... she walked into the water and didn't like it at all!!! But Jet... it looked like she was ready for jumping into it!! They're the best with their own characters...

Brother and sister???

Hi all,

I'm so happy with my two little cats. They're really cute and today I was away for about 25 minutes and when I came home, Jet was mewing. So really adorable, as I haven't heard that for quite a while now.
And I'm sure they're doing alright here. Jumping all over the place, running after each other and so on. They're the best!

Today my mother and a friend of her came over to make some cards. It was great! Didn't do much. I'm working on a Halloween-house. It's already looking great (at least I think *LOL*). Will make a fall-house as well as I got the latest line of Basic Grey: Mellow, which has the perfect colors for the house!
My mother and her friend were also amazed about the fact the little ones are so cute and running through the house that fast!
But also about the fact they can pick them up and caress them. And you must know I'm happy about it, as I don't want them to be cats that are too shy of people and/or are scratching and biting others. I want them to be social and I think it's going to work really good within 5 days time already! I also play a lot with them, getting to know me, cuddle them, getting to know all the noises in house and so on. They're pretty scared of some noises though, but I think that will go alright.

OMG! Just looking around my scraproom and I see so many beautiful things! Got an idea for the Halloweenhouse. Will use some fibers, but right now I think I must have some Halloweenribbon. I'm not too sure. Will find them (or not if I didn't buy them...heehee).
I'm also very proud of my scrapcleaning I did the last days. Still not finished, but my paperstack is just great!
Got some supadupa Display Dynamics paperholders fully filled with loads of Bazzill cardstock and patterned papers. It's just a delight to see it! All my cardstock sorted by colour and some by texture (like Chatterbox, Fourz, "normal").
Will go on with cleaning this next days, but will also be scrapping a lot! I want my Halloweenhouse to be finished and got some more ideas, specially for my little rascals.

The last thing about them....
The person I got them from said they're male and female, but I've been checking it on and on and I really, really think they're both females!!
I will finally go to the vet this Monday (they had their vacation and without any notices on their doors!!! So I'm really ***sed off about that to be honest), so then I will ask him/her to check it so I know it for sure! But I'm 99% sure they're both females...
Oh well... I always wanted one female, and now I will have 2!! I've magic!

Anyways.. Will leave you with a photo of them :)
They're the cutest. I will go on with scrapcleaning. My mom got some things I don't use, mostly they were in goodiebags from scrapweekends. So it's ok...

Love ya!

My cats

Here are my two little cats! They're really cute!! So pure, so little, so.... uhhh.... lovely!!
Their names are Gizmo and Jet. Gizmo for the brother and Jet for the sister.
Will go to the vetenairian (???) to check if everything is alright.
Wow... I love them!

And today I went to buy a thing where they can climb in and put their nails in. I put them in their little benz where I will transport them in by train and car. And when I came home... they broke out of it!!! Don't have any idea how they did it, but they did!!
Anyways... here's a little video of them... Enjoy :)

My cards

Here are my 2 cards I made.
Just bought the newest BasicGrey paperpad: Mellow. Really marvelous fall-colors, so they were just screaming for me as I love those rich colors a lot (hee.... you just have to open my wardrobe and you see it!). I love that paper! Need more!!! *big smile*

Thanks for watching!

Will go away right now to a craftsfair to buy some nice scrapstuff. Already heard of some nice offers *big smile*

By the way... I made these cards for a challenge at Samm's (http://samm-l.blogspot.com/)

Loads to share....

First of all... let me update you about my cat! *YAHOO!!!*

I don't have it yet. Some personal problems came along the way, but I was still searching the internet and there I found this little advert on an auctionsite like Ebay, only in Dutch, last Wednesday.

So there this advert was for 2 little cats, about 10 weeks old. Brother and sister.
To my surprise I saw some familiar names with a phonenumber, so I looked up the number in my phonebook and yes... I know those people!
The man is the brother of my friend's husband!!
So I phoned him to ask if the cats were still there and they were, so I was quite interested *LOL* He said the cats won't go away alone, only with the two of them.
I will get them this Sunday... that's tomorrow!!! (it's 2.00 am Saturday morning!! *can you believe it?!*)
I'm so really happy and R., the man, also is, as now he knows where the cats will go to. And that's for sure a thing he's right about. Who doesn't like his cats to be cuddled and well cared for?? I do!!!

So now I'm all ready for them to come. Only have to buy 2 things, but that's ok like Ali Edwards (aliedwards.typepad.com) says.

Yesterday, or Friday..hehe... I made 2 cards. Won't show you yet... will show them a bit later today...

Anyways... here are some layouts I made since the beginning of 2007.... My present for you as I didn't find the time to update my blog :)

Me in Vienna: First photo at Mozart's Grave and the 2nd of a monument.

BF's niece who really enjoyed playing with her telephone.

Some children singing at the "Dickens Festival" in Deventer, december 2006

I was her made of honour and witness. Really enjoyed this photoshoot! Learned so much!!
A CJ-entry for the "Hot & Spicy Peas" at www.twopeasinabucket.com

And another entry, in someone else's CJ
Another layout of the Dickens Festival. I embroidered the "wave" down the "floor" ("ondergrond" in Dutch). Copied some chipboardletters on patterned paper, cut them out and matted them with cardstock.
A really great ClubScrap layout!
My brother and his GF

That's all folks! *big smile*
