My Crafty Companion

My Shadow, Charlene Butterbean.

I wanted to introduce you to Charlene Butterbean. If you follow my other blog, The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, you've already met her.

When you work from home, you can get a little starved for interaction. Having a little studio mate like Charlene, really does help.

Most of the time she's good. She loves to sit in the window, survey the yard, and chirp at the squirrels as they run along the top of the fence. She also likes to watch me work, especially if there are birds and ribbon involved.

She has been known to get into trouble, though. Sometimes she'll sneak into the room and steal my supplies (like ribbon and birds). Many craft supplies do resemble cat toys, so that's no surprise.

One day she jumped on my desk once and swiped her floofy tail in the glue. Then she swished it again, and knocked over the glitter. The noise startled her and she ran off leaving a sparkly trail behind her, and a big mess to clean up.

Now, there are rules. She's not allowed in the craft room alone, and she can't come in when certain things are in use. Like glitter and glue.

Stella and Henry are my studio mates. At around 10:00 am they usually have a romping game of ruffy tuffy. Then they lay under my work table and fart. Stella likes foam core and Henry likes to sculpt bones. Isn't it nice to be surrounded by such nice beings?

Ms. Bean is not alone in the wearing of the glitter: My Beans (his name) does the same thing. He wants to lay in the middle of it all while I'm busy. So I've had to institute certain 'rules' and regulations too...otherwise he would be all glitter, all the time! And so would the house. Great blog!!!!

Oh she is just the most gorgeous birman!! My very first cat was a seal-point birman. She's long since passed, and I've had a chocolate-point since. They are wonderful cats!
