The fruits of my labors...

I spent the better part of today trying to draw a mermaid! Sounds like I need to prioritize, right? Well, needless (maybe need-ful actually) to say, she needed to be drawn first before I could make her out of silver.

As it turns out, I can draw about as well as my cat. You would think that a few lines and squiggles should not be so hard- but yikes! I definatly will not pursue any career options that involve a pen or pencil. But in the end she turned out lovely in silver:

And now that I spent about 22 hours on various stages of mermaid-ing... i have hungry kids, hungry cats, an upside down house, laundry oozing out of every crack, dishes scattered all around the garden- not sure why- hopefully nothing to do with the cats...

speaking of which, the obnoxious overly large kitten, Santa, who likes to sit on top of the fridge, fell off between the fridge and wall and got stuck- 7:30 am and in my little nightly yanking out the fridge to save a ridiculously clumsey say- I thought they were supposed to be graceful!!

It took me 22 hours (well, I might exaggerate a tad)-most of the time wastrying to make the original sketch!!!
And now...Santa thinks it is a fun place to go- I have had to pull the fridge 2 more times!!!

The mermaid is be-ooooo-tiful! And I think Santa has a future as a comedian. ;)
