I always imagined that I would live alone as a crazy cat lady.
It never occurred to me that somewhere out there was a person that loved animals even MORE than I did. And then, one day, I met Patrick. On our first date, Patrick made it very clear that he adored animals of all kinds. He spent a good portion of the evening describing a stray cat and her litter of kittens born behind his couch. I learned about the birthing box he made for her, a late night trip to the emergency vet when she couldn't nurse, and a detailed description of each baby (Squish Face, Turtle Face, etc.) He was so sweet that I fell completely in love with him: how could I not? Today we are married with three kitties and he is happily employed at the Humane Society doing what he loves most: rescuing animals.

Mockingjay Bobby Pins tutorial as a base, scrap wire, buttons, old plastic flowers and bits of lace came together perfectly to make sweet, festive hair accessories for spring!
His goal is to raise $4,000 for the care, medicine and medical procedures needed by stray cats and dogs that are brought into the facility. These services help them heal and get ready for a new 'forever home.' If you are interested in making a donation to make sick animals happy -and my husband- you can send a couple of dollars to the Humane Society fundraising site. You can also stop by the Humane Society of West Michigan and pick up a set of these fun earth friendly bobby pins in exchange for a donation.
Also, I don't mean to brag, but....check out this adorable sign that Patrick made for the Humane Society. Pretty impressive, huh? If you stop by to make a donation (or bring home a new friend) you will see it hanging on the walls everywhere.
