Crafting with Cats

This is Gingy Pingy...also known as Gingybread and other names I will not type because children might be reading this...

...and this is Sophia the Fuzz, also known as Judy because she glares at us in silent judgement (as one can observe in photo below).

While their colors and overall personality differ, they have one thing in common: they're both supreme craftholes.

I don't know if it's the sound of the scissors that intrigues them, or the sparkling glitter or metallic glue gun smell but once I sit down to create, they decide it's a great time to be all up in my business.

Yes, please feel free to completely trample over my creations. Sophia, don't forget to crumple my print-outs and also, Gingy please do enjoy plonking your fuzzy behind on top of my supply container. You know full well that you are too cute and look too comfortable so I cannot move you.

Yes, they sashay all over my desk, trampling new ornaments, smearing or knocking over paint and stealing the brushes. Sometimes Gingy even decides to have a taste, just to be extra jerky. He probably pooped glitter that day (I hoped it scraped him on the way out).

Despite their dastardly doings (mostly by Gingy, as you've probably gathered), I still managed to produce a fair amount of Christmassy goodness this year. Here's a final shot of Gingy commandeering a container...I should have shipped him off to the Craft Fair as well but I think they would have returned to sender. Such a sweet CATastrophe. The struggle is real!

These lollies don't suck!

Hi crafty people! I know, I know...I've been a procrastinating poster over the last few weeks, but not because I've been lazy. I've been busily elfing away in my little corner office fulfilling a flurry of lolly orders! Who knew that this lil' cute idea would be so popular!?

Pictured: Sugar spirals of love and glue gun burns. Please take note of my awesome new mug which I bought from me to me for my Birthday in late November! I think I'll get a paint pen and draw a check mark next to "spice" (I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want).

Crafting epiphany - I love making ribbon bows, however I found that I do NOT enjoy making 30 ribbon bows at once. Also, is it possible to get a glue gun callous on my hand from constant use, cuz, ouch?

Bonus picture - Cat-ception: Me, wearing a CAT shirt while holding my Mom's CAT!!! "Boy" the ginger tom was duly impressed, which is obvious by his dozy expression.
