Monday in the Studio

Today I started my day in the studio with a cup of tea with lemon and the internet.  I sold several bags over the weekend so I needed to print shipping labels and package them. I also added one new handbag, posted above, to my shop. Once that was done I put on my waterproof boots, since there was quite a lot of snow outside, and took my packages to the post office which is located about 2 blocks away from my studio. Very convenient! When I returned to my studio I pulled out my storage containers of textiles and selected fabric for my next batch of handbags. I decided on dove gray cotton canvas, chartreuse twill, red corduroy and burnt orange corduroy. These fabrics will all be transformed into new handbags over the course of the next few days. Stay tuned!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
