The bell jar factory… otherwise known as my little desk

Here is my little piece of heaven where the needle felt mice are born and the bell jar ideas conceived…

After a bit of spring cleaning and a change of location my desk ended up looking like this.  It’s much better I think. I have a lot more space for my odds and ends.

A month ago, my desk looked like this.

The Hoot & Squeak Theatre presents….

Welcome folks to the Hoot & Squeak Theatre!

Now playing …the all time favourite classic the “Owl & the Pussycat”.

Hop and Willow have dressed up nicely for their roles as the owl and the pussycat.

Hurry and grab a seat!  The play is about to start!

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat…

Pussy Willow, Cat Tales

For weeks, I’ve been struggling for new ideas.  It’s the dead of winter in Melbourne, and my brain has happily hibernated somewhere sunny and warm.  I was working on an “Owl and the Pussycat” inspired bell jar and to me it just did not feel that inspired enough.  So much so that, Willow my Pussycat mouse, has jumped in to help me.  Here’s a picture of this mousy writing down her ideas.

And taking her coffee break. She does like a cuppa every now and then…

And then eating crackers without cheese. Willow is pretending to be a pussycat for her role in the “Owl and the Pussycat” so she’s doing away with the cheese for now. Cats don’t like cheese.

Oh no! Crumbs on the diary!

I’ll just kick the crumbs out. Then go back to writing.

Got to go now.  Still have to brainstorm with this mousy.
