WOYWW 311: What’s On My Work Desk This Week?
Today’s post is dedicated to all of you who craft with cats.
Normally, I love to create with Magellan by my side, but today, he proved to be more a hindrance than a help!
One of the items that I have sitting on my desk is the large jar filled with crafting flowers that you can see in the photographs of today’s card.
Today, Magellan was present when I opened the jar to pick out a few blooms for my card and he was totally enthralled by what he found inside.
He thought that each flower represented a multi-colored gourmet cat treat that he could not wait to scoop out and sample!
In the blink of an eye – Magellan proceeded to hunt paw-picked flowers from my beautiful mixed media floral garden and turn the blossoms into slimy, saliva-laced choking hazards – not once… not twice… but three times in rapid succession!
Oh, what a Naughty Boy my Magellan was!
He tested my dexterity and reflexes as I grabbed him to pull each and every floral delicacy out of his mouth!
It seemed like every time I turned my back for a second to do something – he managed to find another blossom to munch on!
And then – when I finally got the flower situation under control – I caught him merrily rolling my ric rac ribbon across my desk as a prelude to his next snack!
Finally – for his safety and my peace of mind – I gave Magellan a “time out” and escorted him to the hallway. This did not please him at all.
How many of you recognize this look – the intense glare of a displeased cat who is simultaneously plotting his revenge while giving you the stink eye?
Anyway – without further ado – I present you with today’s card – created from my now famous bag of scraps with a little distressing and a few embellishments added for good measure!
The beautiful sentiment reads:
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you guide your way home.

Flower hunting was just one of Magellan’s many adventures this week – he and Tsunami also had a grand time hunting squirrels!
