Bella! Feline Votives in Pink and Blue

Bella! You can’t miss those round eyes, curling tail and ebony black fur! I had the idea for Bella! and first used her on the tote bag, but knew I’d use her silhouette on many other things. As I sorted through my repurposed condiment jars with ideas for votives, I could picture her on these […]

Buy 2 for $25.00 on Many Gift Items

Each item on my website has $5.00 added into the posted price to cover average shipping. But shipping two of most items often costs no more than shipping one. I always give a discount at in-person sales at shows and in my shop, and I try to offer discounts to customers who don’t live close […]

So Many Kitties!

Gingers and tuxedos, torties and tabbies, Siamese and Snowshoe, and lots of housepanthers, my collection of kitty cabochon pendants is inspired by the kitties who’ve shared my life. I’ve chosen paintings and portraits and sketches and photos and lots of different shapes and styles of frames, just as different as the kitties themselves. Above is […]

If You Enjoy My Artwork, You’ll Enjoy My “Feline Style Sampler”

In autumn 2013 I created this little portfolio piece, Feline Style Sampler, sketches and portraits, to include in presentations to prospective illustration customers to both show a variety of styles of illustration and my ability to design a little book like this and have it printed and bound. I was very pleased with the way […]

Ginger Tabbies and Black Tabbies on “Tabbies Tiles”

I’ve had a thing for tiles lately. I 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 with color. I […]

Colorful Kitties Feline Votive

This votive is made with a repurposed pickle jar. I etched the inside, not sure what design I’d use on the outside, but certain I’d add color and pattern to all the workings in the glass. At first I thought it would be flowers, but then I remembered this colorful design that I’d been intending […]

Feline Decorative Dishes and Coasters in Spring Colors

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”. Because they are handmade and shaping, stamping, glazing and drying changes their dimensions, they are not exactly uniform in size, shape or thickness, but that […]

More New Feline and Flower Votives

Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives, and this time I worked out a few different designs of ones that are painted on the outside rather than using the clear labels, and some can be used with pillar candles or […]

A Few New Ideas

This weekend’s crafty experiments were pretty disappointing, but cute—accessory bags, below, and refrigerator magnets, above. The experiment with diluting the Armour glass etch was a total flop, so I have no new votives as I had hoped. Yes, it was all a little disappointing, but nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say. I’ll just have […]

Marketplace: Ailurobibliophile Tote Bags on Sale ~ The Creative Cat

I’m down to five of my original Ailurobibliophile tote bags, one in each color. The images on these five are, well, less than perfect, not quite centered, not evenly printed, possibly a little off kilter, most of it apparent when you compare two side by side. So it’s your chance to get the design, slightly […]
