Lately, I have been really into sculpting from fimo, and have been making tons of characture heads from movies and such.

Well, last night, I was harmlessly bent over my Faun head (From the movie Pan's Labyrinth) and I get hungry. So, I set my work down carefully and go get some chips to munch on.

I come back and find, to my deepest horror, that my beautiful little purr-ball::

Decided to SIT on my sculpture and take a little snooze. She never fails to ruin something I worked very hard on. She is very lucky I adore her to peices, because I had to spend a good half an hour picking the hair from the clay and the next good hour re-shaping it. Still isnt as good as my first one..

Stupid kitty Cat.

Hazzard, Approach with caution! Especially if I am holding a Hot Glue gun!

I love reading these stories!

My cat Cleo likes to play with anything stringy, so sometimes crocheting is really difficult. One day I heard her fiddling around with a stray ball of yarn and didn't pay any attention to it. Then I heard a chewing sound followed by a gagging sound. She had been chewing on the yarn instead of batting it and had some in her mouth. I started pulling the yarn...and it wouldn't stop coming! I ended up pulling about 18 inches of yarn out of her throat!  Shocked I felt horrible for not watching more closely and was thankful I caught her before something happened to her.  Cry

So, lesson learned: keep one eye on the craft and one on the cat!

My dog thinks he is a cat and undoes all my balls of yarn!

My cat, well one of them, doesn't care about the yarn. She's all about the knitting needles, and crochet hooks. Every chance she gets they go under the bed. I have to keep them put up, even if I'm just going to answer the phone.

I was on the moon at the time.....with Steve.

I love one of my cats. She doesn't play with yarn, shiny things, needles, hooks, or any of my other crafting stuff. I adore her.
But my OTHER cat. I love her to death, but most days I want to kill her for the things she does to my yarn. Like nearly destroying my most expensive yarn. I used to be able to lay my yarn around wherever. And then we got her.

But I have learned a lesson: Always put your yarn out of reach of cats.

Ok  so I  only thry to learn crochet when hubby is hiome and we are watching TV for our time together stuff I have to do  or I grab a loom to knit with and EVERY!! I mean every time I get it out he says what are you knitting no matter what I am using hook or loom.   and I can not finish 10 complete rows with out the  "honey would you please....."  the kids aren't even that bad least they know the difference by now.

and if I open beads or buttons anywhere ina  10 mile radius  of said hubby he has a radar that just lures him near to spill them  everywhere.  it's  an illness with him I think  LOL

then the 180 pound choclate lab wants to lay on my while I sew at teh machine. yeah right!

ok and the worst is anytime I make something new my dear sweet brother in law looks and says " oh thats cute..but... you kow you could have.... or well why did you..."

BUT of everything the worst  thing anyone can ask me is... "do you really need more fabric/ yarn/ craft supplies"  I really don't like having to look at people like they are stupid...

looking for instant coffee from australia or russia made with mustard and champagne.  VIOLET CRUMBLES and VEGEMITE would be welcome swap items!!

I get up every morning and find that my kitten has batted spools of thread all over the living room, so that the thread is actually strung around table and chair legs like some sort of bizarre cat's cradle. She also loves to chew wool and anything crocheted, so if I ever botch a crochet project I just give it to her to play with.

O.k I am in the process of making a amazing journal.I had just finished a page that took over a hour to plan,color,and embellishment.I go to the bathroom & come back.Guess what I found on my page cat prints.My stupid cat Domino had decided to take a shortcut across my table.It was a shortcut all right ! Right through the still wet marks that I had just done.I thought there was no way I ws going to  do all that again.Then I looked at the page again & the cat prints added something cute to the page.So I just left it in.The only thing is when I was scolding him,he looked waaayyy too pleased with himself.

look at wists for my likes & dislikes

If I sit down to read, and my 'tiel hasn't had enough attention for the day, she will sit between me and the book, and preen, until I pay attention to her. If I ignore this polite request, she'll start chewing up the book. Smiley

My birds are great about my crafts - they only chew up what's given to them, which usually is a nice handmade toy... keeps them off the other stuff. Smiley

My cats, back when I had them, would hide spools of thread, or scissors, or other vital crafting tools, under the bed or chest of drawers.

Since I'm rather sure the hamsters haven't figured out how to get out of their cages at night, I have to suppose that the dust rhinos under the bed and sofa are the ones steeling my measuretapes and scissors and other important stuff that I find in places I KNOW I didn't put them in the first place. Hubby peads innocent and stays so until proven guilty. It's the dust rhinos I tell you!
