Daily Photo: Today’s Supervisor, and How Mewsette Celebrates Work

Mewsette eagerly awaits my arrival in my studio.

I had barely finished my coffee but Mewsette was round-eyed and ready to start today’s shift in the studio, packing all the things we’d made and assembled yesterday and last night. She supervised me last night as well, and typically the family trades off work shifts so everyone gets enough rest, but Mewsette felt her enthusiasm and quiet encouragement were necessary. I had to agree, it’s been a long few weeks leading up to the holidays, and there really are times when, if a feline wasn’t stationed on my work table to make sure I got the work done, and done correctly, I might just go to bed.

Yes, this is what my studio looks like right not too…good thing you can’t see the rest of the room.

Below is Mewsette’s Celebration Initiating the Workday to Consecrate the Creative Space, performed before I begin anything at all, rolling around on my worktable and rubbing her face on all my tools, bringing joy and black cat hairs to all I do.
