Makeovers

Angel Fin told me to change things up on the blog and get myself on the masthead. I wasn't sure I was ready. I'm just a kitten after all. I thought maybe I should just be in the sidebar, but she said no. We had a long talk and she told me it was time to take the helm. She assured me she would still be around to help me if I needed it.

Of course I wanted to honor her so even though I am on the header, she is going to watch over me from the bridge, the sidebar and her own honorary page. Of course she will always be here in our heart. Are you ready to see the new header?

 Housekitten Confidential!

We got help from the very talented Glogirly of Glogirly Designs. She is a great graphic artist! Her kitty Katie has even given her purrmission to start her own business. Long time readers will remember she did Fin's original blog design, and the matching book cover for Housecat Confidential. 

Mom just thinks the world of GG. She squeals whenever she opens her emails to see what GG (Mom's nickname for her) has created.

Oh and look how cute my avatar is!!!


Also on the makeover front Mom has some time off this week and is planning something called a Spa Day at Home. Angel Fin warned me not to be too frightened by all the horrors I might see. I will be reporting back on all the doings.

  1. Quill, shield your eyes! Those spa days involve the WEARING of vegetables, and other horrific rituals.

    We love the new banner and avatar, they are SO cute.

  4. Love the new header Quill!! You are adorable and I know Fin approves. :) Be careful of Spa days, I recently had one myself and thought it was so great I shared it with our doggie, he got his nails trimed, ears cleaned, teeth brushed AND a bath, he wasn't too impressed and I was a little wet afte the process but he smells wonderful now. So if you hear the words...."Quill....where arrrrre yooooou?" run and hide! ;)

  13. We'll always miss Fin, but we think your new header is very cute and sweet. As for Spa Day, well, there are some things men of any species shouldn't be aware of. Just sayin'.

  14. Nice work Quill! (and GG) Maybe you should give your Mom a 'cat facial' with your sandpaper tongue, I'm sure she would enjoy that.
    Hey-are you gonna write a book, too?

  15. Quill you are tops in our book! Thank you SO much for having Glogirly and I update your look. Let's be clear though...it's ME that does all the work around here. Glogirly, well she's just my assistant and chief salmon-dispenser.

    ...oh and thank you to Trish from Katnip Lounge for taking such WONDERFUL squeee-worthy photos of Quill!

    Thanks for your sweet words and shameless plug.

  17. That GG is the best (well it’s Katie actually!) But to be fair, she did have a rather brilliant subject to work with!

  18. With Glogirly on the case, I knew your header would come out awesome! Too bad she can't help your human with her spa day!

  23. We are so proud of you and your official banner! Of course, Fin will help as needed :)

    I can't wait to hear about spa day--I don't know if your kitten eyes are ready for it!

  24. Wonderful banner! We're sure Angel Fin is very proud of you. We had no idea Glogirly designed the previous header and cover for Fin's book. She's very talented.

    Sweet Praline looks out for us just like Angel Fin looks out for you.
