Lori, Thanks for sharing these lovely beads. Of course you must know that I am drooling right now--not a pretty sight.

I find the older I get my obsession with kitty cats grows. Is it okay that I like to watch kitten videos in my spare time? Will buying the little cat bead really put me over the edge? I DON'T CARE, bring on the meows!

Thank you for this post -- I really needed a smile today! Love the kitty, love the lampwork, and I too can vouch for EarthTones' polymer clay beads; they're so wonderful to work with!
