Friend Of The Week – Bernadette Kazmarski

Bernadette E Kazmarski - The Creative Cat

Bernadette and Cookie! Copyright © Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 2012, All Rights Reserved. Reprinted with permission.

This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Bernadette, the amazing woman behind The Creative Cat – a blog where “even the human leaves pawprints and everything comes with a free side of cat hair, all in the name of creativity!”

Now, it may be seem rather obvious that The Creative Cat is a feline-lover’s lover’s dream – but trust me, this isn’t an ordinary cat blog – and this isn’t just a blog for cat lovers!

Bernadette is a writer – an artist – a photographer – a gardener – a naturalist – an animal advocate – a foster cat parent – and more! She’s a real Renaissance woman in my book. Her blog is content-rich – filled with resources to assist you with your animal-related needs, grieve the loss of your pets – even build your own backyard wildlife habitats!

You really have to visit Bernadette and explore her blog to appreciate who she is and what she does! Be sure to drop by and extend her a warm welcome as our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Did you enjoy learning about Bernadette and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?

Be sure to leave a comment as we’d love to get to know you better – and be sure to share our party with your friends!

Inspirational Video Of The Week – Croix Sather
Do The Impossible

Croix Sather is an inspirational speaker who’s life has been about beating the odds. At age 14, he was hit head on by a drunk driver while riding his bicycle. Instead of dying or becoming a vegetable as the neurosurgeon believed, he went awake from his coma – overcome the odds – and go on to become an inspirational speaker and an record-breaking marathon runner who would go on to run 100 marathons and give 100 keynote speeches in 100 consecutive days!

Croix believes that “Things that are impossible are only impossible until someone does them for the first time.” I hope you enjoy this week’s inspirational speech!
