On December 23th a lovely customer wrote to me via my Etsy site and asked if I could arrange a gift certificate for him to purchase from Pesky Cat Designs for his wife. She had purchased one of my handbags for a friend a while back and liked it very much. He asked if I could send the gift certificate to his wife via email and also send him a copy so he could print it, wrap it up and place it under the tree for Christmas. I was happy to arrange this for him. I also realized what a wonderful idea this was! A gift certificate that you do not have to depend on the post office to deliver. Great as a last minute gift or if you want a gift to arrive a specific day. I have to thank this wonderful customer for coming up with this brilliant idea. Now there are gift certificates available at Pesky Cat Designs. Pretty much instant delivery!
I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
