Colouring with Cats #69 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays ~ In Memory of Sarah Andrews aka Roby Sweets from Cuddlywumps

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

Late Friday evening we learned that Roby Sweet aka Sarah Andrews from the pawesome  blog Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles sadly passed away.  She was the author of several supurr kitty books which Amber has been planning to share fur months.

If mew'd like to go and read her obituary and leave a few wurds in the guest book, that would be fabulous.

Thank you

Rest in Peace Sarah, and know your pawesome legacy will live on in the cat blogging community.


We do hope mew've all had a good weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

Smooch is here again to offur mew assistance in getting your OM's on and Zen Harmonies happening, so just press play, close your eyes and follow his instructions.

Don't mew feel better already? We most certainly do! MOL

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us.

So without further ado here's this weeks mandala.
Just right click the image to save and print it...

And here's our finished version...

In Memory of a Totally Terrific Cat Writer and Blogger

Sarah Andrews aka Roby Sweets

Coloured on the iPad and then transformed in Prisma, this time we chose the effect - Tears.

The pawesome Tabbies of Trout Towne asked us last week; how do we colour the mandalas on the iPad?  Furstly the P.A. draws the mandala on the iPad, saves the image and when when she's finished, she imports the mandala into an app called Art Studio.

Using the fill tool and a stylus, a colour pallet is picked - it takes a 10th of the time to colour this way - today's took about 20 minutes to do. The colouring is saved to the iPad photo library all ready fur some arty-farty effects to be added should we decide it needs a little something more! MOL

If mew'd like to share your peeps pawesome artwurk feel free to upload it to our Facebook page at:
