International Cat Day

Cat 5 in Frame (etsy)Cat Bag Rose bush 2

It is International Cat Day and I couldn’t let the day pass without showing you some of my favourite Cat based goodies.

The kitty cat in the frame is an original drawing available to buy on my Etsy shop. I went cat drawing crazy a little while ago when all I wanted to draw was cats so I have collection of original drawings all on A5 Fabriano paper of my favourite kitties.

My favourite product is my Cat Tote Bag, my day was totally made last week when a lovely lady asked where my bag was from and it was this one! It the most lovely feeling when someone likes or compliments your work. The tote bag is a really useful size and the handles are a great length for putting over your shoulder and you really can fit quite a lot in it!

Happy International Cat Day!

A walk in the woods

Just before New Year I went for a walk in the woods. I haven’t been in these woods for years, they’re near my childhood home in the village I grew up in and it couldn’t have been a better time of day to visit.

The sun was low and the mist had barely lifted all day and hung in the air like a magical, almost eerie, fog. Me and my Fiancé took our cameras and we were so glad we did; I took a few product photos of my tote bags, and then enjoyed the amazing surroundings. We decided that we should definitely go for more walks there as the seasons change, because there is nothing quite like going for a walk in amongst the trees.

Life Lately

I love blue sky, I definitely feel so much happier when the sun is shining. Here are a few pictures from recent months, I haven’t updated this blog nearly enough.

The top picture is from an air show! The middle is a lovely rose covered wall in Hampton Court, one of my favourite places to be when the sun shining and bottom picture is of my Curious Otter tote bag hanging on a ivy covered wall. I recently sent some more to the brilliant Cambridge Contemporary Crafts so if you’re in the lovely Cambridge area pop in and have a look!
