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 […]

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 […]

January Special: Cabochon Pendants, Two for $25.00

When I got ready for my open house in December I made a few dozen more feline cabochon pendants, some I’d made before and also new art and photos, like the orange kitty you see in this photo, and with new cabochon plates, plain circles in a bigger variety of metal finishes as well as […]

“Bath” Decorative Dishes in Peach and Violet

When I made the “Trees of the Trail” coasters I really liked how the white washes turned out, both catching in the grooves impressed from each leaf and also lightly coating the surface, giving them a patina that added to the dimension. I’d wanted to impress a stamp again but this time without ink, using […]

New Decorative Dish and Coaster Designs

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”. This is going to develop into something interesting! Starting with the idea of the original “Three Cats Looking” trinket dishes and coasters I’d wanted to […]

Featured Artwork: “Window Kitty, Snowy Night” Seasonal Card ~ The Creative Cat

I designed this linoleum block print for my holiday card in 2001. The design is based on the actual scene that met me many snowy nights when I came home from my day job and seeing one of my kitties in silhouette, Sally for many years, then Sophie, then Kelly, sitting on the windowsill at […]

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 […]

“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 […]

“Tabbies Tiles” Remix

I’ve had tiles in mind for a long time. I just like them for decoration, but they are also useful as coasters or a base to display something or even hang on the wall. I’ve had the idea of using my linoleum blocks for the “Tabbies” series to create some texture with the impression along […]
