Too busy ...

I hardly got any art done this week. Managed another scribble face, and yes, this time it's definitely a woman! (until now they almost all came out as men)

And I added another face to my large canvas:

And that's it for this week! The reason for this lack of time is twofold.

First one are these two little fuzzballs:

These are two motherless kittens that were found by my niece and brought to my sister. They need to be bottle-fed every 3 to 4 hours, and since my sister has a big party this week she didn't have much time to care for them. So I offered to help, thinking our cat might be able to teach these two some lessons in how to care for themselves. But nooo, our cat isn't interested, so all the lessons have to be taught by moi.... They are the sweetest little things, but boy, they do take up a lot of my time.

Second reason for my lack of time is my daughter, who left today for camp with her youthgroup, for the first time. I never knew how much time could be spent packing things. She is very fussy with her clothes, and at camp they need clothes that are allowed to get dirty or even be torn. She spent ages  trying to find things that she likes but that she still wouldn't mind too much if something happened to them. And I spent ages trying to reassure her that it didn't matter one bit if they got torn or dirty, as long as she was having fun and enjoying herself....

Anyway, the week was over before I knew it, and I'm happy I managed at least a little bit of art, so I can participate in Paint Party Friday :-)

Here are my weekly funnies:

  9. Love yout scribble sketch. That little dog not looking at the others legs made me roll about with laughter. Happy PPF!

  10. oh how sweet are those kitties, and how kind of you and your sister to care for them. Will any of you keep them? I would love to watch you create a scribble face-it just looks so cool but I wouldn't know where or how to start. Fabulous funnies today! Hope your daughter enjoys her camp- I used to love going as a young girl. Happy PPF and weekend too!

    1. Yes, one of us will keep them. My daughter would love to keep them but we already have a cat and a dog, so it might be too much. But they will stay somewhere in the family :-)

  11. Oh how kind of you to care for those Kitties. Over my lifetime I have had to find homes for two sets of Feral kittens, one landed on my doorstep, the others were found in a bag in a parking lot! They are adorable!! Your scribble is wonderful! Love your funnies...that first one reminds me of how my dog always got in my planters and acted exactly like that..."What? what?"... I'm not doing anything...I'm a flower!! It never failed as soon as I planted my flowers he was in there!! Great set of funnies!!

    Hugs Giggles

  12. Oh what adorable little kitties you are caring for. You and your sister are both very wonderful to care for them. Do thy have names? I love your art this week too. You are very good at finding things in your paintings-faces this time. Hugs-Erika

  16. Ah feeding baby kitties would take all the time. Off to camp is exciting and anxiety producing all at once. Have a rest this week and paint. xox

  17. Oh my, how sweet are those? You might not get as much art done as you'd like, but it must be so rewarding to look after these adorable little fur bundles! And your scribble girl looks great!
