All the New Stuff

I don’t usually try to create six new things at once, but it turned out okay. You know how I love to tell stories about the things I make.

My Display at the Cat Show

Setting up a display is always like setting up a puzzle for the first time. I’m never really sure how much space I’ll have, and I always have new things to display.

August Newsletter from The Creative Cat
