Horse Farms and Front Pagers


I was so inspired by my recent road trip that took me through all the beautiful horse farms located in Ocala, Florida, that I had to create a handbag to celebrate this majestic animal. Ocala is a city in Marion County, Florida, USA. Marion County is one of the major thoroughbred centers of the world, with over 1,200 horse farms in total and about 600 thoroughbred farms. While driving by these beautiful farms I told my partner that I would love to have a home on a couple of acres with some horses. My partner, who grew up with horses, quickly made sure that I was aware of all that work that is involved with taking care of a horse and how much food they eat. It did not take me long to snap out of my day dream! 


Also, today my Wayfarer Purse in Chartreuse made it to Etsy's front page! It was created by an Etsy administrator using the search term "lime green."  I had so many of my Etsy friends write to me and let me know. Thanks guys! I feel very lucky to have meet so many wonderful people through Etsy.  :)

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!
