Star of Wonder feline votive.

Pet Memorial and Sympathy Gifts

In addition to my commissioned portraits and Animal Sympathy Cards, I’ve been working out both standard and customized memorial items for you to remember your pets and to give as gifts to friends who have lost their pets.

Handmade Memorial Gifts

Votives, premade and custom

My votives are made using purchased glass votives as well as upcycled condiment jars with etching, clear vinyl labels, alcohol inks and paint. “Star of Wonder” has become a popular design for memorial votives and I also have several designs reminiscent of the rainbow bridge. In addition, I can make a custom votive for you from a photo you provide.

Custom Memorial Votive

This glass votive is etched by hand and finished with a clear label I print from your photo or artwork of your pet. It’s made from a purchased cube-shaped glass vase 3.25″ in each dimension and comes with an LED tea light. Price includes shipping.



Custom Memorial Votive

Custom Memorial Votive

I etch the inside of the purchased votive to better diffuse the light from the candle, then prepare your photo or art to fit and print the design on a purchased clear vinyl label and burnished it onto the vase.

You can provide me with a photo or artwork. I will prepare the image to the right size and shape to fit one face of the votive.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

This idea began with the “Star of Wonder” votive I designed for the 2018 winter holidays. Many people purchased it as a memorial item for themselves or for friends. I started working out the process of customizing the same square votive, but with a pet’s image on it as a customized item.

When the subject of a recent portrait died I knew I’d like to give Oscar’s people a gift, and they could tell me if the votive was something they might like to have or not. I used just the face from his portrait, and continued the background color all the way around the votive. They were in approval, and that made up my mind to offer custom votives using your own photo of your pet.

About the custom votives

  • Just like Star of Wonder and all my other votives, this glass votive is etched by hand inside the votive to better diffuse the light from the candle.
  • Because I want these votives to be consistent and have the flat surfaces to accommodate the image it’s made from a purchased cube-shaped glass vase 3.25″ in each dimension.
  • You can provide me with a photo; the image must belong to you to avoid any copyright violation.
  • I will prepare the image to the right size and shape to fit one face of the votive, and remove the background if you prefer.

I provide an LED tea light, though it can also be used with a regular tea light or other candle. Price includes shipping.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Star of Wonder holiday card.

Star of Wonder holiday card.

This design is adapted from a holiday card, and of course inspired by and features my fine felines.

We don’t really celebrate any one tradition for the winter holidays, but we enjoy sharing traditions of all our friends. I had created the six-pointed star as part of an invitation I designed for a non-denominational holiday musical celebration a few years ago. It could have been that, while I worked on that design on my computer, one or more young black cats found it intensely interesting against the black background of the design and an idea was born, a universal message for the season, with cats. It wasn’t the one above at first, but another one, below, adapted from remembering the Four when they were kittens looking out the big window at the birds and the snow, then it was night and there was a star…

Star of Kittens holiday card.

Star of Kittens holiday card.

I really like this design, and it was just what I’d envisioned. But there was another, more serious design developing in there. Soon I was looking for the purr-fect silhouette. You’ve seen me use daily sketches for new designs for merchandise, but I’ve also used daily photos. I remembered a feline silhouette from a photo of Mr. Sunshine looking up at a moth in the pendant lamp that I used for my annual Independence Day post Oooh! Aaah! I wanted to be certain to capture every single hair and whisker of that silhouette—it was very fun and worth every minute to isolate all those furs and whiskers to that his silhouette would look authentic.

Keepsake Boxes

Ranging in size from 2″ x 4″ to 9″ cubes, by keepsakes are made of mache, cardboard, wood and vintage cigar boxes. I carry a large number of feline images as well as flowers, butterflies nature. I can also create a custom keepsake for you with photos you provide.

This papier-mâché box is hand-painted in indigo with bright red trim, with a print of “Two Cats After van Gogh” adhered to the lid. Lid and bottom are finished with a light coat of matte-finish varnish. Insides are unfinished. Box measures 6″x6″ in diameter x 3″ high. Price includes shipping.



Front view Two Cats After van Gogh Keepsake Box

Use them to store your kitty’s keepsakes or your own, or jewelry or office items and much more. Give them as a gift or use them as gift boxes. Some people have used them as urns for their pet’s cremains.

I choose colors that coordinate with the artwork and paint each box, in this case the red and blue being liberally used in each of the paintings. I then print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the lid. I finish the bottom and lid of the box with water-based clear varnish. Box insides are unfinished.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

“Two Cats After van Gogh”, oil pastel, 6″ x 5″ © Bernadette E. Kazmarski

I was so taken by the exhibit “Van Gogh Close Up” that I began visualizing sketches of my cats and other things in techniques and colors that van Gogh may have used, the thick impasto of the paint, the contrasting outlines of figures and bright bold non-objective colors The first of these was “Two Cats After van Gogh”, using oil pastel to create the layered impasto and texture. I also have other keepsake boxes and gift items with other images in this style such as “Mimi on the Windowsill “, “Sunshine in Colors”, and “Kelly’s Yellow Bath”. Please search my shop for those titles to see the items I offer with those images.

In creating my Daily Sketches of my cats I experiment and work in a different style and medium each day. You can read more about these three sketches and other on The Creative Cat (www.thecreativecat.net).

This box has my painting “The Perfect Place” on the top, painted with deep forest green and sides embellished with a cutout of the flowers from the painting. Box measures 11″ x 9″ x 5″ high. Price includes shipping.

[ss_product id=’051c9bba-ff8c-11e6-9a46-002590787d08′ ]Handmade, The Perfect Place 11″ Rectangular Keepsake Box[/ss_product]

Just one little careful study of sun on the bench and flowers, from anothers’ garden. My own garden bench should be so well landscaped.

About the keepsakes

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.

I choose a variety of papier-mâché boxes from the craft store, envisioning the art I’ll print and decoupage to it and the colors I’ll paint it, and spend a few days creating and embellishing, under feline supervision, of course.

I use soy-based acrylic paints and print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the box. Box insides are unfinished.

The boxes are handmade in their country of origin and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections, but each one is an original and I often make a particular design only once.

Friendship Friday

Tea for Tulips Keepsake

This vintage cardboard cigar box is finished with a white and antique silver crackle glaze and antique silver trim with an image of my painting “Tea for Tulips”. Box measures approximately 7.25″ x 6″ x 2″ high. Price includes shipping.



These cigar boxes are the old-style cardboard type, the ones we probably all grew up with around the house, holding photos and hardware and handkerchiefs. As you would expect these boxes are gently worn, in varying states of wear and tear, written on, watermarked, with holes from thumbtacks and dinged up corners and warped lids, but still usable to create something new.

The artwork is printed on acid-free label stock and adhered to the top surface. Because the lids are a little warped and flip open if the box is tipped, I’ve added a small ribbon and Velcro closure on the front.

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.

Set of Seven Keepsakes Inspired by Nature

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.

The boxes are handmade and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections.

[ss_product id=’fd546bae-9241-11e6-bc24-002590787d08′ ]Handmade Feline, “The Eye Model Round Keepsake Box”[/ss_product]

This photo has long been one of my favorites, taken in my studio where the lighting was good and Giuseppe was getting drowsy supervising me, hence the bedroom eyes.

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.

I choose a variety of papier mâché boxes from the craft store, envisioning the art I’ll print and decoupage to it and the colors I’ll paint it, and spend a few days creating and embellishing, under feline supervision, of course.

I use soy-based acrylic paints and print my artwork on matte-finish sticker paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the box. I will occasionally add a varnish as a finish, Box insides are unpainted and unfinished.

The boxes are handmade in their country of origin and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections, but each one is an original and I often make a particular design only once.

Impressionist Cats keepsake cube.

This papier-mâché box has five of my cat paintings and sketches in pastel and an Impressionist style on the lid and four sides of the box, trimmed with bright blue. Box measures 7″ x 7″ x 7″. Price includes shipping.

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.

I choose colors that coordinate with the artwork and paint the trim on each box, in this case the red that I liberally used in each of the paintings. I then print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the lid and sides. Box insides are unfinished.

The boxes are handmade and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

I’ve always been inspired by the Impressionist painters from sketches to paintings. This includes five of many works in the style.

This box has my painting “My Mother’s Columbines” on the top, painted with deep forest green and sides embellished with a pattern of smaller images of the painting. Box measures 9″ in diameter x 5″ high. Price includes shipping.

[ss_product id=’e0fe595c-ff8c-11e6-b30c-002590787d08′ ]Handmade, Columbines 9″ Round Keepsake Box[/ss_product]

Another piece borne of January inspiration in my seed and flower catalogs, this little bunch of columbines was so joyful that it stayed with me. One of my favorite flowers, it is also a favorite of my mother, and I gave this painting to her as a birthday present one year. She has since passed away and I’ve sold her home, and kept the artwork I’d done. I sold the original to a good friend to give to her mother but this image will always remind me of her.

Animal Sympathy Cards

Text reads:
The sweetest memories often come in quiet moments.

[ss_product id=’de53da52-dfa2-11e5-9261-0cc47a075d76′ ]Animal Sympathy Cards, Kelly Twice[/ss_product]

When I took this photo one autumn morning of Kelly in the long warm sun path from the back yard through door and across the mottled basement floor, though it was such a common event, I knew immediately this photo was special.

Timid rescued kitty Kelly could not pass up a chance to sit and be washed by comforting warmth, and while she often talked about things she liked she had settled and was quiet and contemplative in these moments. Although most of her body was in shadow leading off into her elongated shadow on the floor, I could see just enough of her tortie splashes on her silhouette to always know it was Kelly. and when she turned so I could capture her delicate profile, and curled her tail characteristically around her paws, I knew this photo, of all the ones I took in those moments, was going to “be something”.

I recalled it years later when I began to design my animal sympathy cards and wrote the verse to accompany the image, knowing that someday I would look at that spot and remember that quiet moment with Kelly. I do now, each warm sunny morning when we gather at the basement door to watch the nature and wildlife and enjoy one more temperate morning.

This line of 5″ x 7″ sympathy cards for pet loss is:

  • printed on 12 pt. card stock
  • includes a matching envelope
  • Individual cares are mailed first class
  • sets of cards are packed in a clear-top white cardboard greeting card box

Sympathy cards assort with all other 5″ x 7″ greeting cards (except custom printed cards) for a quantity discount. Visit my Animal Sympathy Cards page to see the entire set.

Cards are blank inside but can be customized with your message for an extra charge.

About the artwork

I call this design one of my “non-denominational” sympathy cards that doesn’t feature a cat or any animal at all, only pawprints next to my footprint on my stone path. If you know animal tracks this print is obviously a domestic cat’s print, but pawprints are universal in our language of animals with paws.

I took this photo one June morning in 2009, less than two weeks before I lost Namir, who along with Cookie spent time out in the yard with me every morning in those years. I remember turning around and seeing these prints on that flagstone as the three of us walked along the path, and hurrying to get the photo before the prints began to dry in the sun. The memory was so strong and I immediately began to form the final title of the image even before I knew what I’d do with it. I remembered it daily, knowing that Namir’s heart couldn’t hold out much longer. It was one of the first designs I visualized when I decided I really would go ahead and design the Animal Sympathy Cards.

Ironically, I had always thought it was Namir’s pawprint but just a couple of years ago I looked through the photos from that morning and realized it was probably Cookie’s. That would be more typical because Cookie was my guardian and followed or preceded me everywhere. But she has gone to prowl the big back yard of eternity with Namir and several of my other feline family, and the pawprint represents that wonderful time with the three of us, and by extension all of us.

About the artwork, and Kennedy

“Unforgettable” features Kennedy, a hospice rescue who was only with us for six weeks but somehow seemed like a brother to the family of four as soon as he came in the door. Those bristly whiskers and gaunt face, copper eyes with a cataract, bent legs, stiff spine, who could forget any of Kennedy’s battle scars? But mostly, who could forget the part that was just him: happy, full of love and friendship, despite his pain and his past as you clearly see in his eyes?

The photo is one of the very last I took of him while he still lived, taken on the morning of the day I had him put to sleep, looking at me with trust and love and understanding and all that experience written all over his face.

In the years since I’ve designed these cards I’ve designed several more. Some are new messages and images I want to share, some are dedicated to the geriatric and hospice foster cats I’ve had the joy of knowing, even for just a short time. To read more about how these cards came to be and the remarkable cat whose loss inspired me to realize the dream of designing these cards, read “Animal Sympathy Cards” on The Creative Cat.

[ss_product id=’15e58bba-dfc0-11e5-9b38-0cc47a075d76′ ]Animal Sympathy Cards, The Way You Looked At Me[/ss_product]

Namir turns his gaze up to me, enchanting me with his “bedroom eyes” as we spend a morning in the garden. To visitors and to me, once he is sure he has you under his spell he turns on those famous bedroom eyes, narrowing them just enough so they looked mysteriously slanted and angling up a tourmaline glance, as if sharing a secret, looking totally exotic (he thinks), purring joyfully, certain you belong to him completely.

I’ll always remember the way you looked at me.” It was so much a part of “us”.

This photo was taken May 22, 2009. We lost Namir on July 1, 2009. He was the inspiration for my sympathy cards and my blog, The Creative Cat. Who could resist those eyes?

About the artwork

Sophie was always in one of the windows when I left and when I returned, and she always managed to use the curtains to dramatic advantage. This is one of my fondest memories of her, nestled in the creamy lace with the spring-blooming forget-me-nots in the windowbox.

The forget-me-nots are beginning to bloom as they grow taller more quickly, an inch or two each day, in the pots in the windowbox under my dining room window. Each year when I transplant them from the yard and put the pots in place I remember Sophie and this particular beautiful moment in 2005—May 4, 2005 to be exact. It was Sophie’s year to pose in forget-me-nots and I have so many from the first two weeks of May, but of all of them, this is my favorite.

And it’s not just a favorite of that series of Sophie in the forget-me-nots, but of all my photos to date, and a treasured memory.

Sophie always watched me leave the house, and in the evenings I closed my curtains before I left. She also like to play around with the curtain—often I had to inspect the lace to see her white fur through the mesh, or she dramatically appeared from between the panels, around the edge or underneath, but she was always there with her big round eyes.

On this day, in the late afternoon, the warm spring sun angled into the window imparting a creamy tone to the lace, and the forget-me-nots I’d planted in pots in the windowbox were in full flower. Before I left I closed the curtains because I’d be gone after dark, and Sophie began her little game while I was still indoors, so I stopped and captured a few images of her silhouetted and peering through the curtain at me.
