Artsy Fartsy Tuesday

Today we have more pictures to show you from our messy art endeavors. Thimble loves to insist that her momma here snap plenty of shots to show just how helpful she is. We've already shared a photo or two from this photo shoot, but here's some more of Thimble the Art Assistant!

Thimble never forgets to do the sniff test.

You never know what might sneak up on you in the messy art room,
so don't forget to look this way.

And look that way, too, of course.

This momma here has been getting lots of extra help lately. I'm participating in a number of fun holiday arts and crafts fairs these days, so there is plenty of mess-making going on, with which the furbabies just love to help.

One of the most recent doodles I've gotten lots of help with is this holiday mashup:

Poor Thanksgiving tends get lost in the holiday shuffle. So, we thought we'd give Turkey Day some love in the form of art.

That being said, do any of our friends remember which of my furbabyies has an origin story involved a turkey? Was it Astrid? Evan? Thimble? Perhaps Eddy?

Happy Tuesday!

Our Tip of the Day:
We mentioned yesterday how it might be best to keep those pecans and that pecan pie out of your furbaby's reach. Today, we're giving a reminder to be cautious with all nuts, especially if you're not sure how they might affect your furbaby. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, and other nuts can all potentially lead to gastrointestinal upset, some with the possibility causing more severe reactions than others. The possibility and severity of a reaction also might depend on your particular furbaby, and their particular gastrointestinal tract. Some nuts, such as walnuts, macadamia nuts, hickory nuts, and the previously mentioned pecans, can also contain a toxin that affects the nervous system, especially if they become moldy. For reasons such as these, to be on the safe side, it is perhaps best to simply keep any nuts or dishes containing nuts out of your furbaby's reach. As always, it's always better to be safe than sorry!

It's the season for crafting - making decorations for the house and gifts for friends and family USED to be something my Mom did a lot too....wreaths for doors, centerpieces...but these days she mostly tries to find unique things online to give. We love the turkey! Thanksgiving is a WONDERFUL occasion and should be celebrated as much as Christmas for sure......

Love, Teddy

We think maybe Astrid has the Turkey story. Thimble, you sure are such good help to the Mom and her art. Well done. You all have a best ever day.

Thimble is the cutest little quality control inspector ever. The art is all beautiful, I am sure it will all sell quickly. I am ashamed that I don't know who had a turkey story, I know it wasn't Evan because his was a coyote. I agree that Thanksgiving doesn't get it's due. I have only one box of decorations for that holiday. Great tip too.

Every artist needs a muse, right? Sounds like Thimble is volunteering her services ;)
