In this post I feature all my commercially printed Valentines with photos and illustrations, seven designs in total. These cards are 5″ x 7″ and are printed on 12 pt. […]

More New Feline Votives

Last week when I made five new votives trying out a few new techniques I had plenty more ideas but ran out of the label material I use to print the images I burnish onto the jars. I found an alternate material to try but didn’t care for it. The labels are available again and […]

New Feline and Flower Votives

Some more of my Star of Wonder votives, and then some new ones! Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives. They are etched inside and have either a vinyl label I’ve printed or hand-painting on the outside. Because I’m largely […]

Daily Sketch Reprise: Studio Morning Shift, 2017 ~ The Creative Cat

Mimi, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were totally enchanting getting organized in the best cuddle pile on my drafting table by the window and the light was wonderful. I kept visualizing the three black shapes and tried to ignore them and stop visualizing a sketch. Good luck with that. I told myself that if they lined […]

“An Old Memory” for the Holidays

I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Some cat’s paw had taken down one of my cut paper snowflakes as he sat to look out the window. What a […]

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

Ailurobibliophile Tote Bag in Four Colors

I’m working out a design I’ve had in mind for a while—since just about a year ago to be exact! This was to be September 2017’s new introduction, starting with a tote bag then possibly moving to other things, and the concept would lead to a line of items with this design and others, using […]

Working Out the Details

I thought I’d be happily printing tote bags with my homemade printing screen today. Alas, I am not, but all is not lost. When things don’t work out as you plan, you can either drop it, or work it out, and I’ve made both decisions plenty of times in my years of creating things, both […]

A Little Shakespeare: “Enter Three WITCHES” Halloween Card

“Enter: Three WITCHES” features Miss Mewsette, her mom Mimi and her brother Giuseppe re-enacting a scene from Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Guess the kids have been getting into my literature textbooks again. I thought my Riverside Shakespeare was too heavy for them, but there is no getting in the way of a determined reader. Now that they’ve […]

Such a Very Pretty Kitty

This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my ink sketch “Kitty in Pink”, but I colored him in with black because I liked the silhouette—which may look familiar because he’s the same silhouette I used on my “Cats Are Like Potato Chips” sign. Click the image to learn more about […]
