Aha! Finished Just in Time!

I managed to get all of Magic Men/Cats and Witchy Women/Kittys in just in time to get one graphic request in from the day job.  Which means half an hour of work and then it's off to take the sick daughter to the doc-in-the-box.  Depending on how I feel, I'll start working on Christmas, unless I have something else from the day job.

Star has had his outdoors gadabout for the morning and is back on the job here in the office in the chair beside me.  He started to get up on the top of my chair and then on the arm of the chair so that he could peek at the screen to make sure that I was Doing Things Correctly™ but then decided the chair was a Much Better Place To Be™.

Another Busy Morning!

In the shop anyway!  I just finished up putting up Cane Cat in both Witchy Woman/Kitty and Magic Man/Cat sections.  Eight sections... whew!  That leaves only eight to go.  Because there will also be two versions of the two designs in the two sections of Chair Cat.  So two times two being six... uh-oh... times two... twelve!  I miscounted.  ::head:desk::  Methinks I'll take a break first.  Yeeeesssssss my preciousessssssss.  A nice, loverly break.  It's not like they're giving me any work on my day job.  ::sigh::

BTW if you ever want to see a particular product in a design and it isn't there, don't hesitate to ask!  I'm more than happy to throw it in for you!  Actually this morning it wasn't as hard as it is sometimes.  Only one of the designs required me to go into every... single... one... of... the... products... ::falls over onto the floor:: (hey!  I can do that in cyberspace!!).  Star is curled up like Sleeping Cat on the chair beside me and Oberon is being a flop cat (hmmm may have to make one of those) on the lower shelf of the craft bookcase.  I just might emulate them for a bit.  I do at least need to lay down for awhile.  However I should be able to get the Chair Cats up today!

Wence cometh "Get Off The Table?" or Off Mommy Brown's Table!!

In the store there is a Gray Cat who says "What Means This... 'Get off the table?!'".  As I'm sure you know, all cats do this.  So do ours.  But while ours sometimes get onto other tables, it primarily comes from one particular table.  You see, leading from the living room to the kitchen there is a wall where the pantry is located.  Against this wall is a drop table which belonged to my wonderful husband's grandmother, Mommy Brown.

:::sighs::  This morning, I said to Zaphoid as I went to make coffee, "Get off of Mommy Brown's table."  As I came out of the kitchen to come back to the office to turn on the computer I said to Star, "Star, get off of Mommy Brown's table!"  After I got dressed and headed back to the kitchen I looked at Oberon and said, "Get off of Mommy Brown's table."  Thomas has not been getting onto Mommy Brown's table lately.  This is because I scored 14 boxes of books from Freecycle (this afternoon I'm giving away an old computer to someone who needs one, whoot!).  But then he's always preferred to work on silly sleeping poses instead anyway.

I'm going to check with the day job and see if they have any work for me.  Until I hear from them, I'm going to head over to the shop and put in some more of the graphics in Magic Man/Cat and Witchy Woman/Kitty.  And if they don't, I'll just keep on working on the shop today.  Once I get the other eight for each section (four cane cats & four wheelchair cats) I'll start working on Christmas Cats, unless someone requests cats for Thanksgiving.
