2021 Cat Hop Day 1


Wow I can't believe it's Cat Hopping season already!

Day 1 is already reaching it's end from where Janis hails, so I'll keep this short(ish) and sweet in an attempt to get back on Janis's timing!

Here is the link to Janis's MAIN HOP PAGE with all the links and info you need for a smooth hopping experience. (don't forget to register to be eligible for prizes!)

I've made 3 new projects for Janis so those will be appearing here and besides those, I might share some cat projects I haven't blogged.

Today is one of those projects.  This one has a process video on YouTube which you can find below

Love and stay safe,


  1. Love the fun pics on your page! That does not look very comfortable!
    I had an antique corner chair out in the garage, and it was quite broken down on the seat, and made a great 'nest'. One kitty I had, Spooky, loved to sleep there. I guess it was a pretty cozy spot! I've since had the chair repaired and re-uphostered and it sits proudly in my dining room. It's been in my family for many years, having been my grandmother's!
    Following all the socials!

  2. "THANK YOU for sponsoring the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden!"

  3. its so nice!
    hello from Cat Lovers Hop

    1. I forgot to answer LOL
      my cats like to sleep on sofa thats not strange. bus Speedy likes to sleep on her back :D

  4. Hello Alex. Fab LO. I'm a long time follower and I just found your fb too bwahhahaaa. Hugz

  5. WOW, what a terrific layout, Alex! Love the photos of your cats and love how they laze the day away. :-D I already follow you on blog, YouTube, and Facebook. I don't have an Instagram account so can't follow you there. I'll be commenting each day. And let me say, "Thanks for helping Janis this year. So grateful that the hop went on as scheduled."

  6. Ooops, forgot to add that I have one cat who opens the lower cabinet doors in my kitchen and slips inside when she needs to hide from strangers who may come to visit. She'll stay until they leave, even if they stay several hours, and when she does finally come out, she makes as much noise as possible, letting the cabinet door slam behind her to express her displeasure at having her routine disrupted. lol

  7. Hello, Alex! Your layout is stunning! I need to get back to scrapbooking my kitties, especially the two who are no longer here. I love what you've done here - this is awesome inspiration for me! As for your question, they have all slept either on the bed or on the chesterfield/loveseat as they got older. But when they were younger, they loved boxes and baskets, especially Kiwi. I guess not so strange, but so cuuuuuute!

  8. Love all the fun details on this gorgeous page and also love lots of photos (especially cute kitties!). Our next door neighbor's cat visits us every day and sometimes she will spend the day sleeping in one of our chairs on the porch - but she'll sleep anywhere! lol

  9. Love your page of kitties. I am already a follower of your blog, FB and IG. My cats sleep everywhere :)

  10. Oooh, I love your scrapbook page. Great way to combine your love of cats with your love of scrapping! It looks like you used a lot of embellishments that any cat would like to chase...butterflies, birds etc. I follow in all the ways listed, and my cat Bailey used to climb up onto my top bunk and sleep there when he was a kitten. I have no idea how he even got up there, because he was tiny.

  11. I am so happy to see a few scrapbook layouts in the hop because that was my first hobby years ago. Unfortunately, none of my cats would stand still long enough for me to get many photos of them...and they would take off as soon as I pointed my camera in their direction. They did, however, just LOVE to nap on my craft supplies! Whether it was paper, or stacks of embellishments, you could always find one or more of them making a nest right in the middle of everything.
    I follow on FB, Youtube, IG, by and by email.

  12. Fabulous layout and
    cute kitties! I follow
    you everywhere.

  13. A beautiful layout. I didn't get to play on day 1 so I forgot about commenting here. I don't have any social media. No cats either. [Bunny]

  14. Somehow I missed this post....makes me wonder how many others I missed along the way. I am less than halfway through the projects so I am really way behind!
    I adore this super-fun LO, Alex!! Cats really do find the oddest places to nap sometimes. Mostly mine are comfort-seekers and sleep on my bed or a cushy chair during the day...but I do have some that have secret nests that we have yet to discover. They disappear and come out at their leisure hours later.
    Thank you for your lovely blog candy giveaways. I am a follower/subscriber to all the platforms you mention! <3
    Thank you for helping out and taking part in our 2021 Cat Lovers Hop.

    1. WOW...what is wrong with my brain???!! I must be ADD or something....I can't seem to remember to include all the pertinent info you ask for. At least I remembered to answer the question this time!!
      My entry is #199. <3

  15. Totally amazing scrapbook page! Lazy kitty days are the best 😻. I am entering your giveaway. I could not follow you on FB for some reason. Technical difficulties caused by me I suspect! 👻

  16. Beautiful page and a beautiful kitty! I have one kitty that likes to sleep on my lap as I sleep at night. I guess my body heat keeps her warm! We both hate to be cold! My projects were # 71,121, 122, 147 and 196. Thanks for adding to the fun of the hop! :)
