Last week we shared a drawing that illustrated how helpful the furbabies around here are during none other than arts and craft time (click here if you wish to be reminded of just how helpful they are). Although I will indeed be participating in another art fair this weekend, that's the not the kind of help we will be illustrating this time around.
