My New Studio Assistant!

Say Hi To My New Studio Helper!

The last few weeks have been very busy and stressful in our household. But one thing that has brought a bright light into our lives is my new studio helper, Juno!

On September 2nd, we went to a local Humane Society, an organization to which I often donate, and adopted one of the cutest, loviest kittens we’ve seen. Her name was Viola, which we soon changed to Juno.

So Helpful

Juno is now right at home and oh so helpful. She routinely helps me put wire on the back of my frames, biting the wire to make sure it’s secure. She loves to jump up on my lap and attempt to grab my pencils as I’m drawing to make sure I’m doing it right. And she especially likes to curl up on me when I’m working on my laptop and attack my clicking keyboard.

I’ve never had a studio assistant who’s so helpful!

Cuteness Overload

Juno is a little bundle of joy that is helping keep our spirits lifted. After my cat of 13 years, Jiggs, died in January, it has left a hole in my life that Juno is helping to fill.

Juno is great entertainment, a huge distraction, and a wonderful little fluffball of joy. It took her all of an hour before she officially took over our apartment and became queen. I’m thankful she’s entered our life and I hope you get some enjoyment from her too!

Queen Juno.

It’s great to have a fur-friend to help out. No matter how stressful things get, she’s there to put a smile on our faces.
