Pesky Cat Designs in the News

Last week a press agent from Etsy contacted me about a story that FOX 5 News, here in NYC, is doing on Etsy and asked if I would like to participate. They wanted a local designer to interview as part of the story. I agreed and this past Tuesday morning FOX 5 News showed up at my home studio to do an interview about Pesky Cat Designs! Both the reporter and cameraman were very nice and made me feel at ease. Although I am definitely not someone comfortable speaking in public I agreed to do it and decided I would give it my best. When the reporter, a really nice person, was talking to me off camera I was comfortable and had fun. But when the camera came on all of a sudden it was more difficult to think through my answers etc. Strange what a seemingly harmless camera can do to a person. I felt like it was generating some kind of mind alternating current that prevented my brain from functioning at its best. In any case I made it through and was told that I did fine. I hope that I do not appear too nervous or look stiff as a board. Perhaps when they edit and piece the interview together it will all flow nicely and my stiffness will vanish. A happy thought.
I'll let you know when the story airs and post a link!


Congrats on the feature!! That is soooo cool. I am the same way when a camera is on. I would have froze.
That is so so exciting! Well done!

That is AWESOME! You are so pretty and I'm sure you did great! I used to have my own television talk show (no big deal) so I've seen all kinds of reactions from people when they are on air. The thing is, they almost always come off much better than they think they do! Can't wait to see you on TV! Now when I buy a bag, I'll have to get an autograph! Cheery wave from Bev

You glamour girl! As far as I followed this was your second TV presentation - wow!

So cool of Etsy to recognize the amazing talent right at their dorstep, I can't wait to see the story!
I just cannot wait to see the interview. You're such a naturally talented and kind person and I'm sure that will show during the interview. And those new linen bags are amazing. Nice work!

This is a wonderful experience, I am sure it will be excellent.Last year I had an opportunity to experience the fear of the camera pointing at me...someone described it very well " I felt like a rabbit in the headlights"! I am sure now you can relate and laugh at the comment!!
Well done!and hope you get lots of great publicity :)

I'd be quite nervous, too--so I think you must have done well...congratulations!!! And that bag is a beauty!

I've done tv before and was a nervous wreck although everybody who saw it assured me that they couldn't tell. I'm sure that you were fine and that the exposure will be great.

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!

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!
