Matt has been teaching himself Arabic as well as practising his calligraphic hand. See the rats? They are similar to an art form called Calligrams. (Wrinky is a hairless girl we have who's skin is--you guessed it--very wrinkly)!
My new computer can print stickers! Isn't it cool. I finally got my glossy photo sticker paper after the stupid company send me the wrong thing twice! I will put them on sale in the Illustrated Rat web site store.
This was done to offer as a raffle prize to help abused and malnourished dogs in Mexico. Tickets are $1 and the raffle begins 9/8 and runs of 2 weeks. There are many wonderful prizes. Please contact me if you are interested.
I just got information on this group and joined. It looks like a valuable resource for those needing or wanting to help. Here is the description off the home page:
This is a Charity group where animal lovers, pet owners, rescuers, rehabbers, and animal sanctuaries can come to post messages about the ITEMS/SUPPLIES, VOLUNTEER WORK, and/or FUNDS needed to help in caring for animals or need help with vet bills.
When posting a Wish List, please provide the state you live in, what is needed, and provide a CONTACT email address in your post.
If you can fulfill any animal wish list, please contact the poster of the message by using the provided email address in that message. Here is the link if you want to check it out (there is a separate group for those in the UK). http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/AnimalWishList/
