Whew! It seems everyone is recovering from my birthday week. Sweet Marley (aka Marley Bear, Mar Bear, Mar Mar and simply, The Bear) showed off his cutest sleep position in his customary box on my studio table and I couldn't help but snap his picture. He really is one of the sweetest cats I've ever known but also one of the biggest and he is constantly sprawling in one inconvienent spot or another. He loves to have his belly rubbed until he drifts off to sleep and that means, of course, that he needs to stretch out to his full length for maximum belly exposure. In the process, he always manages to take out one or more of the following: coffee cup, water cup, wet palette, scrap papers, the pen I'm using and/or foam brush covered in glue. I love it when he naps in his box because it means his destructive awesomeness is more or less contained and out of the way.
And finally for today's post, here's the winners of my Wild Birthday Rumpus Giveaway:
