Nine Lives Spent!!!

I know that some folks think that when I talk about having a muse, they, well kinda think I might have lost my mind am just using that as a way to express myself.  I really do have this little inner voice that whispers to me and most of the time we are in perfect harmony. I have been designing some bunnies since Easter is close at hand and started on one a few days ago. I worked on the face of what was going to be a faery, The keeper of the dust bunnies" when out of the blue my bunny ears turned into cat ears. There was no more bunny....it seems that my muse was playing games with me. As I just let the new design take over I realized that this was the actual design I was suppose to sculpt.  I have been talking to one of my good friends, that has the heart of an angel when it comes to animals, about kittens. There are so many furry babies that need a loving home and this angel, Brenda, loves them and keeps them until she can find their new homes. We have all heard the story that a cat has nine lives to live but we know that's not true. They have one and it should be one where they are loved and cared for.

I think the part of the whimsical approach to this sculpt was due to a new friend, Jeannie that does the cutest and  funniest post every Saturday. She calls it Caturday. I'm so addicted to this post every weekend. OMGOSH......if cats could really talk I'm sure most of the captions for this adorable photos would be what was being said. So happy that Ms. Peaches can't talk!!!

Those of us that already have a cat that rules the house lives with us know that female or male, cats can be real DIVAS. This is where my sculpt took me....to look at the humorous side of the cat. This little gal was a true DIVA all nine lives and as she slowly makes her way up the silver lining to that cathouse cat place in the sky she is still that same little diva.


Piercing green eyes and thinking "Just where am I going to get my nails done now" look in her eyes. 
 
All decked out in her finest for this "Nine Lives Spent" trip. Angora pink bodysuit....wool sweater with Swarvoski crystal buttons. 
Even her new wings are made from silk threads with tiny crystals hanging down.


Until next time,
Hugs,
Regi

  1. Regi: This is SO cute! Thank you for your kind words. I cannot imagine my life without animals and they give so much and make our lives so much richer, it is a pleasure to dedicate my life to making their lives a little better. Ask MY Diva's if that isn't true! Hugs, B

  2. Thank you both Caroline and Brenda. I had fun making this one. Ms. Peaches LOVES to hide inside my sweaters if I leave them laying about...that's what gave me the idea for this ones sweater.

    Ohhh Brenda...I laugh and say you should name your ranch the zoo but I would have one too if my hubby wasn't a bit afraid of animals. AND they know he is too....LOL!!!!

    Hugs,
