One of the most important ones is the cheese voice.
I have two very ornery creatures living with me, as you know. Smart, ornery creatures.
So when I call them to try to put them up so I can set the alarm and leave, they ignore me. I have to chase them around, try to lure them with treats, throw mice - do everything but lasso them or taser them.
HOWEVER, when I get out a piece of cheese to give them a treat, and I say just PART of a syllable of one of their names, they come SCREAMING out of wherever they are and start trilling these cute little trills and hopping up and down like furry Mexican jumping beans.
This will happen even if they are sound asleep at the time that I start to speak in my apparently unique cheese tones.
I cannot tell the difference between my cheese voice and my regular voice. But they can, because apparently their very survival depends on it.
I've even deliberately tried to disguise my cheese voice with an exaggerated weird clown voice - it doesn't work. They can detect cheese voice underneath my greatest acting skills. It's kind of spooky actually.
I've tried the opposite too - I've tried to fake the cheese voice when I'm trying to get them to do something I want them to do - this is completely ineffective. One cannot fake the cheese voice. Apparently cheese actually has some sort of transmogrifying effect on my vocal chords.
Which it should, because cheese is magical. That's probably all we need to know.
You know what else is magical? This month's Paper Pumpkin.
This is without a doubt the CUTEST kit we've ever had. I have two subscriptions because I like to gift one every month - to new team members, to my friend in Bryan in the art program at the assisted living center - or to someone I've never stamped with before, but it will be hard to give one of these away, I'm not gonna lie.
I combined it with the Garden in Bloom set and some sponging for a beautiful desert scene.

SQUEE! I just love it.
Here's a quick video on how I made it.
Here's a link to the mask paper I reference in the video.
And I added a new Blue2You class today - it's a digital only class - from my real live card class today - so head over to my Online Class section and check it out. I have a fun bonus there for you too. :).
Don't forget - my live convention coverage starts Tuesday. Tune in for a week of high desert shenanigans and MAYBE some prizes :)
