Great Ideas From the Studio!

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave!  Mom gets some really great ideas when we work down in the Studio. Take yesterday, for example!  Zim was helping by guarding the stairs and I helped make this really cool fabric basket:

Me and our cool new basket

Dad bought a new shelf and Mom had an idea to make cool fabric baskets to put on it for storage.  Like what we came up with?  I picked those fabrics myself.  Mom and I have a secret stash of batiks in the Studio that only we know about.  (Oh...  and apparently all of Mom's FaceBook friends, too.  I'm sure they won't tell anyone.)  Anyway, I chose all batiks.

I was so helpful with the basket that we finished way earlier than we thought, so Mom got another great idea - let's go to the Kansas Ocean!!!  Now you're talking!!!

Here's Zim when we first got there:

"Hey.  It's raining over this way!"

It was sprinkling (we really need the rain - can you tell how low the ocean is?) but Mom said it wouldn't last, so we should just keep walking.  Sure enough, by the time we turned around and got back to where Mom shot that pic, the  sidewalk  boardwalk was already dry!

"It's like it was never even raining!"

It was nice and cool out there; needless to say, we had a blast!

Here's a cool special effects pic Mom did of us boys:

I hope Mom gets some more great ideas down in the Studio this afternoon!



  1. My Wish for you is Water Water WAter.......


  2. Maybe you were just there at low tide? Heehee. BTW, I'm sure mentioning your Mom's batik collection all over the interwebs will ensure no one ever knows about it! ;-)

  3. What does your mom do with all the adorable stuff she makes?

  10. Momma says your mom should have a web site where humans can send dollars for her goods (or does she have one already). Because that little basket would be just the ticket as a place for her to dump her keys and badge and stuff when she gets home from the work place.


  11. Dave, you and Zim are such photogenic pair. I mean you look as tho you constantly pose thru life. Betcha you get tired of it tho,. oh and I love that basket.. Sure looks handy.(Got a zillion places I could use it)

  12. Our mommy loves that fabric basket! Could you see any tide pools with the ocean that low?
