Announcement... Karen is retiring!

Hi everyone!  As some of you may already know, my true passion is making cards for Operation Write Home and so I’ve decided to retire from Feline Playful and follow my true calling.  I’m very happy and excited to share with you that Feline Playful's Lead Challenge Coordinator, Shelley Dureau, has graciously agreed to take over Feline Playful and is the new owner. Shelley has been the motivation behind Feline Playful for some time now and has many amazing things planned that I’m sure you will love.

I sincerely hope that you will continue to help out and will wholehearted give Shelley your full support. Although I will no longer be involved with the blog I will be working behind the scenes with Shelley to transition the blog and ask that going forward you kindly direct all questions and concerns to Shelley.  I’ve already updated the email address on the blog so that future emails go to Shelley but will continue to forward to her any emails that may come my way.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and Feline Playful, I truly appreciate it!

Hugs, Karen

Looking for a WINNERS team...

Hi everyone!  We are seeing lots of signs that Feline Playful is growing by leaps and bounds and have tried streamlining some of our processes but still need more help.  We've recently added the WINNERS posts and this has doubled the amount of time the coordinatators spend researching and updating the blog.  On average it takes about an hour to update each post.

We are looking for 3 volunteers who are each able to commit to 2 or 3 days a week to be part of our WINNERS team.  The winners team will be responsible for the daily winners posts.  Each volunteer will be assigned specific days and on those days will visit the challenge blogs to note who the recent winners are then will post them here on Feline Playful.  We also know that life happens and ask the team to be open to backing each other up occasionally.  Please know that you won't have to add links for all the challenge blogs each day, we have a really easy way of doing so that we'll share with you! 

If you are interested in joining the WINNERS team please email us at and note for us if there are certain days of the week that work best for you or days that you are not available.  This will help us select a team that will be able to cover the entire week!  We would like to get the WINNERS team going as soon as possible and may send invites to those who make the team as early as this weekend!  We'd love to have you join the team and hope you will consider it!

Message from The Team

Hi everyone! We want to take a moment to share with you some of the exciting things we’ve recently added to Feline Playful!

We’ve created some fun quick reference buttons on the sidebar to help you find what you are looking for! For a list of challenges click on the CHALLENGES button and once you’ve entered a few challenges don’t forget to click the WINNERS button to find out if you are a recent winner.  Did you notice that we said WINNERS! Yes, we are now listing who the recent winners are of all your favorite challenges. We encourage you to visit the winners and congratulate them on their recent win.

We’ve also added a page to keep track of DT CALLS. If you’ve recently posted or know of a Design Team Call that is not already listed on the page we’d love to hear from you, simply email Karen at with a direct link to the Design Team Call post and we’ll add it to the list.

We will also be adding a page you are all sure to love, BLOG CANDY. In order to get this going though we need your help! If you are offering blog candy or know of another follower who is we’d love to hear from you, simply email Karen at with a direct link to the blog candy post and we’ll add it to the list.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support and all the encouraging comments! They really mean a lot to us. A HUGE thanks to all the challenge blogs who are taking time to send us updates, we hope that you will continue to do so. If you are a challenge blog and would like to help out by sending a list of upcoming challenges please email us at with your challenge blog name and URL.
