My Desk Companions

I have a big black wooden organizer that sits to the right of my laptop, and on of top of that I have some buddies that keep me company while I work, play, and create! I just received a new addition to my collection, so I thought I'd introduce you to the gang. Here's a group shot:

From left to right we have: Wolfy the wolf pup, Oso the bear, Jazz Kitty the beanie baby, Illia, and Lirael. I an also see a little baby food jar I stick odd beads into to someday possibly use, and some candy canes from Christmas I've never eaten :P

Wolfy was given to my brother and sister of the heart, John and Becca. We all love wolves and whenever I see it I think of them! Oso was from my brother and his new wife (then fiance) Tanya. Jazz Kitty is from my dear best friend Mel.

The two art dolls are the work of Meri - they are what I really want to show off! First the one I've had for a little over a year - Lirael.

Lirael is my art muse. I loves her so much! If you look closely (don't think you can see this all in the photo) she has earrings, a necklace, bracelet, and anklet. And she's purple. Isn't that perfect for me? We work well together.
Meri also made Illia for me:

She's my D&D character, bard, and an adventurer. In this shot you can see her bow (her quiver's on her back), her short sword, and her harp :) Isn't she cute? She's going to be working with Lirael to give me some more geeky ideas to work into my art. 

I love my desk companions! Do you have anything special on your desk?

Awww, that's so cute! I'll totally have to share my desk- I have neat stuff one it, too.

I'm just honored two of the dolls I made get a place of honor. :D

Mostly the cats...they don't leave room for much of anyone else!
