Cyber Monday and Shop News


It's Cyber Monday which is a marketing term that refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday being the busiest day of the year for retail electronic commerce. My Monday started off really well with a midnight front page feature on Etsy and two sales. Thanks Etsy for creating such a cool treasury and selecting my purse to be featured along with all these unique items. Don't you just love the dog with the daisy!
Now for some shop news. This week I'll be adding lots more corduroy purses to the shop most likely on Thursday or sooner. Check back here for shop updates and previews of work in progress to be the first to know when new items will be arriving to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Although I am not able to take custom orders at this time, if there is something you would like to see in the shop feel free to contact me via Etsy. I often create items with customer feedback in mind.
For all the animal lovers out there I added a link to my sidebar to the Animal Rescue Site. All you have to do is click on their link to give free food and help animals in need. No donation is required and you do not need to register or give out any of your information.
Wishing you all a great week ahead!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Build Your Own Purse

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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
