Marketplace: Warm it Up With Summery Oranges ~ The Creative Cat

I’m in the middle of several new designs and ideas right now, finding magnets the right size, experimenting with making cutting templates for polymer clay, working out the tote bags with different styles of handles, and a new painting, so I don’t have anything new to share this week, even though there will be a […]

Add Warm Color With a Stained Glass Cats Votive

This votive features my pastel sketch “Stained Glass Cats” on a 3.25″ round glass votive. I etch the inside of the votive to better diffuse the light from the candle, then print the design on a commercial clear vinyl label and burnish it onto the votive. Using this art, which is tall and narrow, I […]

Details of My Display

Since this is pretty much what I’ve been doing for the past week I thought I’d share some more photos of my shop display. I’ve really been enjoying how some of the setups worked themselves out. I would love to have a shop but there is no way I could swing that but I love […]

Cat Cabochon in Classic Black and White

This cabochon design is actually an illustration, a little ink drawing of mine from decades ago, called “Sally’s Profile”. She was my lovely long-haired deaf white cat who is also the subject of this month’s desktop calendar. I drew this from a black and white photo I’d taken of her, loving the high contrast of […]

All the Pretty Cabochons

Like so many other items, I’ve been envisioning this style of cabochon pendants with my art and photos in them for quite a long time. I purchased a four pendant frame and cabochon sets with neck chains to try out so the only hard part was narrowing down the images to use, and, honestly, that […]

22 Cats Keepsake Box for Very Special Cat Things

This pattern is a collage of all 16 portraits—22 cats in all—included in my Great Rescues Day Book. I’ve painted portraits of pets since 1992 and I’d always wanted to publish them somehow, and since most are […]
