Cuddle up under this handmade crocheted blanket! Its beautiful rainbow colors are striking and comforting.
From creator Donna Weyer:
Margaret McInnis is a prolific crochet designer with over 160 designs online. Her Cat's Claw block caught my fancy and after working one of them, I was hooked (pun intended). Last year I created a Cat's Claw afghan for another nonprofit, but I was wanting to try a "randomized" color pattern of rainbow colors and thought the Cat's Claw would be a perfect vehicle for this. And who better to give a Cat's Claw afghan to than a cat rescue!
The bright colors are perfect for a kid's room or anywhere you need a splash of color. The yarn is Michael's Loops & Threads "Impeccable," a worsted weight acrylic that is both machine washable and dryer safe (low heat). It works best to wash it with a couple of towels. Washing it with clothing may damage the stitchwork.
This blanket is meant to be used and enjoyed. I hope it gives you great pleasure through the years.

See yourself, and your health, like never before.
Have you ever wondered why there are so many clichés about the eyes? Windows to the soul. Seeing eye to eye. A cold, dead stare. Or have you ever wondered why all of our eyes look so unique and different? Or maybe you have some inexplicable health symptoms, conditions that have persisted no matter what the doctors have tried?
Here's your opportunity to understand what your eyes say about you, and your health, through the practice of iridology, the study of the colored part of the eye for personality and health information.
Join Dani Espinosa, iridologist, healing diets counselor, health coach, reflexologist and founder of Eye and Me, for a 90-minute deep dive into your health history and unique body constitution. An in-person or video chat meeting can help reveal the story of your health. Days later, you will have a personalized one-month self-healing plan including diet/lifestyle/naturopathic remedy ideas, information about your unique iris constitution(s) and a healthy goodie bag in the mail that includes a personalized Bach Flower Remedy formula to support your personal self-healing plan.
Not interested in a health plan? Bring a friend or loved one for a personality-focused iris reading for the pair of you. They'll explore your unique personality types, focus on communication quirks and strengths you each have, and you'll receive healthy goodie bags as well!
Previous iridology explorers from FCCRSNC had this to say, "It was really good! My book club friends loved her presentation and insight, and everyone agreed that she was 'spot on' in her assessment of our personalities. She was really good in taking her time with each person and also offered to look at pictures of eyes of our families, so she went above and beyond."
Restrictions: Session can be in-person or via video chat and will be worked out with the winner.

Yo, I'm a cat named Vinny, cool, swank and skinny.
I was with Jack and Sally when I got lost in a dark alley.
Things were looking pretty grave, a poor kitty needing a save.
Out of the shadows came a kind hand. That's when I knew it was going to be grand!
T'was The Nightmare Before...the day I was brought through the Rescue/Clinic's door.
Well fed and flea-free.

"Grand Prismatic Cat" (2019)
by Carole Hossan
"Yellowstone National Park is one of my favorite destinations. Seeing Grand Prismatic Spring was my number-one goal on my first trip to Yellowstone.

What an introduction! We returned the next morning to view the now-calm glorious colors of the Spring, along with various tourist hats along the edge."

There's plenty for two to do in beautiful Breckenridge when the weather is warmer and the grass is greener, and this package is proof. Cruise the paths for 2-4 hours on a pair of Trek comfort bikes or a fun 21-speed tandem bicycle, complete with helmets and locks, with a $50 bike rental certificate from Carvers Ski & Bike. Then soothe any sore muscles and pamper yourselves with $200 in spa certificates good at either the Soothe Spa on Peak 7, the Refresh Massage Studio at Grand Timber Lodge, or Infinity Spa on Peak 8, where all spa guests are welcome to enjoy The Grotto, hot tub, steam room, sauna, cold plunge and Relaxation Room. Next refuel with some Mediterranean-inspired gourmet cuisine at 9,600 feet with a $100 gift certificate to BoLD Restaurant and Bar. You'll be ready for a great night's rest at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center with one night in a roomy 700-square-foot suite featuring a full-sized kitchen, living room, wood-burning fireplace, and a private balcony (valid 6/1/19-11/15/19). The next day, the action continues as you experience the thrill of flying through the air on a guided ziplining adventure for two. With multiple ziplines, the course is built into the mountainsides, cliff faces and treetops for an up-close encounter with nature. Ready to return to ground level? Soup's on with $25 to Soupz On, and do a little shopping at Marigolds Farmhouse Funk & Junk with a $25 gift card. Before leaving Main Street Breck, use a $20 gift card to Kenosha Steakhouse to wet your whistles, or top off your adventure with dessert!
