Happy Hat Day!

Happy Hat Day everyone! Today is National Hat Day (every Jan. 15 is), well not officially "National" since it isn't a government holiday. But it is cold in most parts of the US, and hats are worn to keep in the warmth. Much of our body heat is lost through the head and hats help to protect us from the chilly weather. So in recognition of hat day and hats of all sizes, color, shapes, and styles, here are some crafty hats:

Kitty Critters Crafting

My last post was for the dogs, so I thought it would be appropriate to post for my cat, too :) I normally don't like to buy toys for Elmo, as he loves to play with anything. But this crafting project was just too cute and Elmo will love it for sure. I love the idea of maybe slipping in some cat nip in these!

Look What the Cat Dragged In!
