I don’t seem to be able to stop doing cut paper pieces. This “crafting frame” was on sale about a month ago and I purchased it. I like it because it’s small and white-washed. It doesn’t have any glass in it either, which I like. I picked it to work with last night because I want to kick out a few cats relatively quickly.
I started by having my cat pose for me. We actually have flying squirrels living in our wall. And because we’re soft-hearted suckers, we let them stay during the winter. (Now that it’s spring, we will kick them out. They do pee and poop a lot in the wall but luckily, there is no wiring in this particular wall for them to destroy.) Hubby cut a piece of sheet rock out of our wall and siliconed in a piece of plexiglass. Napoleon LOVES this. He spends hours every day waiting for squirrel to run by the “window.” If you tap on the wall, you can make them scurry in the wall and Napoleon strikes this pose, shortly before he pounces on the glass:
