but YOU CAN STILL COMMENT TODAY.
Comments close at 11:59 pm, Pacific Sunday, Oct.28, 2018.
(Remember, half the prizes are awarded to commenters!!)

 SIGN IN HERE (required to be eligible for prizes) and then go to the Main Hop Page
where you will find the projects linked-up to comment on.


Daily Games on each of the daily posts are still open for commenting and linking up to enter for those prizes, too!


Hi, Friends......

I can't believe we are done with the Cat Lovers Hop for this year!!!  We ended up with almost 250 projects....WOW!!!  You all have outdone yourselves with kitty cat creativity!!   

How are you doing on commenting?????  Remember you can leave comments all day today (Oct.28, 2018), through 11:59 pm Pacific.  Does it help having this wrap-up day as an extra day for commenting?  I hope it does.  Half of our awesome prizes will go to random commenters that are SIGNED IN HERE, so you will want to leave as many comments as you have time for.  

Also, remember there is a special flash prize for one of you lucky commenters who manages to make it through the entire list by tonight!!  Link up your name at the bottom of this post if you manage to comment on EVERY post to be in that drawing!!

NOTE: Some of you might not have accounts at all the platforms that hoppers have used to post their projects..and so are NOT able to comment on those projects. That's okay....I am making an exception for link-ups that go to FB, IG, or Flickr and maybe one or two other troublesome platforms. Please comment on those projects if you possibly can, but if you can't because you don't have an account there it will not count against you for this prize.  If you are having trouble commenting on a project or two, just make a note of it in the comments, please. Thanks!!

And.....how is Janis doing on commenting, you might wonder.....????
Well, I finally got started commenting on Friday evening and am sooooo impressed with your awesome projects.  I've only made it a little over 1/3 of the way so far, because I take my time as I work through the link-up, reading each post, laughing (and sometimes crying) at the cat tales, and enjoying each project.  You have taken a ton of time on your entries and posts...and I don't want to miss a thing!!!  So.....I might not finish commenting by tonight, but I WILL get to EVERY SINGLE post!!  Thank you so much for the time and effort you have put in.

After all the gates are closed on the Daily Game link-ups and commenting....AND I get done with all my commenting!!....it will take me a few days to get all the winners run with random.org.  But I will be posting that list as soon as I can, so be watching for it!  

Hasn't our 2018 Cat Lovers Hop been fun?????  Thank you soooooooo much for all your excitement and participation.  I wouldn't be doing it, if I didn't get such positive encouragement from all you cat lovers out there!!  You have made this the best year ever for the Cat Lovers Hop!!!  

That's all for now.  I'll let you get on with your commenting, and I will see you in a few days with the Winners List!!!  Yay!!!

❤ 
Janis

  4. Thank you so much for this extraordinary Hop, full of amazing prizes and inspirations! This is my first time about this, but I enjoyed so much seeing all the beautiful projects from any part of blogland and read some cat's stories, even if I have had a limited time to do it (I used also my night to do it... ehehe)! :D The next year I will manage to enter with some cards, this time I put together only one :)
    It seems to me to have just commented any entered project (wow, how much they are!!! :D) except for those on FB, IG and Flickr, because I haven't these accounts, but also those projects are amazing, so I'm sorry to haven't commented them!! However, thanks for the extra time!

  5. Thanks so much for a wonderful hop. This was my first year and I've learned so much from every project. New blogs to follow, new designers to buy from. So much fun! I've commented on everyone but IG and liked those who posted on Facebook. I'm so glad I did - such AMAZING projects. Thank you!!!

  6. Hello, Janis, I have LOVED this Cat Lovers Hop! The best part was that I actually made two new cards in addition to the projects I made in the spring. I actually did some crafting! Woohoo! It felt good! Once Brian comes home and things settle down, I will hopefully have time to craft and blog again - and I am excited about it! Thank you for inspiring me to take some time to craft!

    Yes, the extra day was really good for me. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have been able to comment on very many. I got up at 5 a.m. today for this hop! I've been at it for 5 1/2 hours now but I don't think I'll have time to make it through all of the beautiful entries. Hoping to pop back later to have another go at it. I find it hard to leave a quick comment - I'm more like you in that way.

    Thanks again for all your hard work and inspiration! This was a wonderful distraction for me and got my mind off my troubles for a short while! Already looking forward to the next hop!

    1. Wordpress accounts were tricky - got stuck with commenting (if you are blogger) but finally after a taking ages, managed to comment again - google kept changing names/passwords/accounts!

  9. Hi Janis, congrats on a mega successful event. I managed to link a few projects, I am still hoping to get to the daily games and add some more comments so thanks for the extra day. It's been a hectic and unusual week for me. Thanks for all your work. It's been awesome fun. Hugz

  10. Thanks so much for all you do, and to your helpers! I didn't get many projects done, or all the commenting done I had hoped to do.... it's been a busy week! A big thank you to all the wonderful sponsors too!

  12. Whew! I just finished commenting on all (except my own, that is, tho I DID click on a couple of those by accident. lol) of our RECORD 243 entries from over 6o registered participants in at least 12 countries. What an amazing amount of fun and inspiration! I enjoyed all your lovely projects on your daily posts, too! Thank you for your amazing hard work in putting together all the fun for us and in leaving such kind and fun comments, too!!

    BTW, you might want to remind everyone to approve the comments on their blogs and make sure non are in spam ASAP tomorrow so you can more easily pick winners from the comments.

    I am really hoping you're up to doing this again next year... We'll hafta have a 5th anniversary bash! (that's some 36-48 CAT years according to this fun chart https://www.catster.com/cats-101/calculate-cat-age-in-cat-years ) : )
    Warm, furry hugs,

  14. Thanks so much for another fun hop, Janis! I know this must have taken ages to organise and I'd just like to say thank you for all the fun and friendship this hop has brought, Jo x

  15. Phew!!! I'm exhausted and boggle-eyed! BUT....I've just finished commenting! Despite Blogger issues, I've managed to comment on most blog posts - each time on Blogger blogs, having to prove I'm not a robot...blah...blah...blah! I've sent my comments via Facebook messenger to those that I managed to stalk - Donna, some of Ike's, Glennis, Kathy and Viki and I'm still searching out Sue at GertCards, Monika Skinner and Super Stick Chick.
    I've thoroughly enjoyed the hop and wish to thank Janis and her helpers for a fabulous week! It's been a blast! Much love. xx

    2. Carole, please put your name on the link-up for having completed the comments. You have heroically done your level best to comment on everyone's post. Blogger is a bear, sometimes. Thank you for going the extra mile to leave comments on as many projects as possible.

  16. Thanks so much for all you do Janis. It was another great blog hop and I got a lot of projects made for my upcoming craft shows plus many ideas from the other participants. I think I commented on all but Vivian Foo's on Facebook.

  17. Janis, you know I LOVE this hop and I am amazed at how it has grown over the years! The extra day did help - I don't have a flickr account so I was unable to comment on those entries, and I don't think I got every single one! Pretty soon we will need an extra WEEK to do all our comments! Thanks SO much for all you do to make this hop a reality - I look forward to it all year long. Hugs XO

  18. Thanks so much Janis for the great hop. Not gonna get all mushy here as I haven't even begun to get at the links yet. Oy!

  19. Wow, what a fabulous hop! Thank you so much for all your hard work and to all of those who entered such beautiful projects. I am agog at the number of different cat themed stamps and dies, and saw way too many that I NEED to have now. I managed to comment on every entry and only wish I had more time to spend oohing and ahhhing over each one. For some crazy reason, blogger decided to require multiple hoops to jump through to prove that I'm not a robot, and I almost gave up...awk!
