Too tired for lots of words right now, but I didn't want to deprive you of pictures ;)
Firstly, a big thank you goes out to Women's Studio Workshop!

|it started by carving the top small (about 8 x 8" )...|
|then I it got bigger (a very nice job registering these 6 plates onto one sheet - thumbs up!)|
|then painting and refinement with ink and color pencils|
|ahhhhh - a beautiful art-moment|
|all together now...|
|but she was lonely...|
|that's what flying rats are for ;)|
|I did get out of the studio a little though|
|taking in some nature|
|and I got a Christmas tree for my feline assistants |
|After rubbing her face on it, Jr. quickly brought over her |
favorite toy and stationed herself to guard both
toy and tree simultaneously (she is a very clever kitty).
|and I baked gingerbread kitties|
|combining two of my favorites things in to one|
fragrant and delectable morsel.
