I met Kathryn at a Business Women Connect event locally here in Naples. We exchanged business cards and she asked if I ever created a shopping cart website. I provided her with several clients websites and once she reviewed them we made an appointment to meet and discuss options on creating a one-of-a-kind website. I was excited to be able to work with Kathryn and help her with the layout and design of her website.
Here is Kathryn's story behind My Favorite Furr:
Years ago Kathryn Goerig-Eastlake owned a long-haired cat, named Sasha. She was most happy if she was on her lap. Sasha was so happy that she drooled all over her as she petted her. She made quite a mess, and Kathryn started thinking about what could she make to protect herself from her lap pets and their messy self?
Years passed, Kathryn is now a retired high school teacher enjoying sunny Florida life. But, after a few years, she found that retired life wasn't all that interesting and that she needed to use her creativity to solve that pet problem she had been thinking about for years. Eureka! She decided that she could design a grooming tool box, kneading pad, drool, hair and debris catcher in one grand product! She created . . .”Love Your Laptime TM”
Her mother's charitable attitude towards stray animals greatly influenced her, and now she wants to give back to the pet rescue organizations. A percentage of all her profits will be distributed to the Humane Society of the United States, Naples Humane Society, and other animal rescue shelters.

If you have an iPhone than this is a unique way to make friends and share what you have been up to lately through a world of pictures. I recently downloaded the free app and have been taking random pictures ever since. I love the editing software that comes with the program and how easy it is to post and heart other pictures. The popular page is one of those things that someday I hope to make but for now I enjoy learning from other photographers out there that take beautiful, amazing photos.
They also have many competitions and challenges that you can join. It makes it fun and interactive. What I like most about Instagram is that people share what apps they have used to make certain pictures pop with color or unique designs. This week I've downloaded many free apps and some I paid for to use and make my pictures more creative.
My top picks for apps this week I've been enjoying #instagram and using lots of hashtags. My favorite apps that are helpful are squaready, camera+, PicFrame, Watermyphoto, PhotoStudio, and Shapecollage.
For those of you that like to create connections with new people and perhaps share what you do, I think Instagram is a perfect fit for these type of friendships.
