This weekend was Urban Craft Uprising's holiday craft show. 
Panda, Tsuki and I met up and went on opening day.


It. Was. Madness...


You cannot say Seattle doesn't support indie craftspeople.






I did manage to make a major dent in my christmas shopping list.  Hooray!





On the homefront, the kittens exhibited an extra does of crazy this weekend.


Their pet bed has become more toy than sleeping aparatus.  Here Fiona is attempting to drag the bed into her box. 
(What's REALLY disturbing, is when I woke up Sunday morning, I discovered the bed INSIDE the box...I mean physics dictates she obviously tired of trying to yank it through the hole, somehow developed logic and stuffed it inside the practical way.  But I hate physics, and prefer to believe she somehow crammed it in that tiny opening. )







This is either a commentary on the funness of the bed/toy, or quality of their food...






And woke to this today.  I'm not really sure how they managed to upend a sidetable.  Can you see the carpet indentation of where it's supposed to sit?  I'm more impressed than anything.
( And look how proud Max is! )






Of course, at the end of a busy day of mischief: snugglez! 
Note: This picture sucks.  Can you tell they are hugging? I need to learn how to better use my interwebs phone.




Aaaaand, just in case you thought I was kidding before.....

    What a talented pair of Cuties you are raising there :)

    Your mystery box idea is so amazing and all those goodies, wow the ladybug purse too cute :) Now I am just going to have to steal your idea for my Anni giveaway :)

    Looks like you had lots of fun over the weekend and it is truly wonderful and encouraging that Seattle (and I do believe Portland in places) supports Indie :)

    I had fun chasing trains this weekend :)

    Have a lovely Monday T. :)

    Ok, all the things I have to say deserve a list.

    1. We're getting a kitten soon. Hopefully tonight. So excited!
    2. You're right, physics is (are?) awful, as evidenced by my awful grade in my one and only physics class.
    3. Me = follower. This = comment. Bam!

    Your cats behave like dogs-lol! They're adorable!Did you meet up with fellow bloggers this weekend-must have been so fun! Great giveaway too-i so wanted you to have another one although i'm moving. We got an offer on the house just before the Thanksgiving trip, so they're boxes everywhere because we're packing like crazy! We'll have to move into an apartment until the new house is done. Anyway, a mouthful i know, but i'd love to win! Fingers crossed! XX

    Tee hee, fun kitty antics! The Ogre and dogsat for his parents' this weekend, and man, is their Jack Russell Terrier, Scrappy Doo, a spaz, especially compared to my sweet MoJo.

     
  13. Cristina @FUJI FILES on December 6, 2010 at 3:37 PM

    Oo an event like that is perfect to tick a whole bunch of people off my Xmas to do list! I'll keep my eyes open for something similar in Sydney ;)

    There goes trying to be surreptitious about looking at blogs while in class... Here's to hoping the instructor just thinks I was having an apoplectic fit and not snorgering at something that was not class-related. I love cats, they're the best entertainment ever sometimes.

    (T @ Poppy Place said you were cool and we should check you out, and she was right.)

    I am warning you don't drink or eat or you will spit everything all over the screen - this is the funniest thing I've possibly ever read - a blog written by a cat with a Dominican accent.....you might also be able to ask him about the whole table situation - LOL!

     
  24. Emily@Pookie and Pierre on December 8, 2010 at 2:40 PM

    oooohhhh... I love any post where the kitties make an appearance. I swear they have super human powers after midnight.
