Another Studio Location Coming Soon!

Pesky Cat Designs will soon have another workshop location. Starting August 1st I'll be working from my studio located in St. Augustine Florida! Those who have been following my blog know that I've made many trips to the area in the past few years. I'm excited with the prospect of being able to work from a new place that will bring me new inspirations and ideas.

My studio will be located within close proximity to several craft and green markets. If all goes as planned I hope to be able to sell my handbags at one of these markets as well as continue selling via my Etsy shop. I'll keep you posted with everything. Right now there is a lot of planning going on so I am not able to work on new handbags as much as I want to. As soon as all gets settled expect to see many new creations in the shop!

How exciting! I have to admit I much prefer living in a warm climate (after living in Canada) and I'm sure you will too! Markets are great for getting direct feedback. x
Lucky you, not even going to try to hide my jealousy!! I hope everything falls into place easliy for you!
You will love this old Floridian city. I don't know it well, but I've been through it, and I know it is one of the beautiful spots of Florida...a very beautiful state!

Wow, this is great news!
Your designs will be inspired by two completely different places, I guess we will be able to see the NYC and the beach line of bags...

Moving all your sewing stuff to another place can be quite a big job - but you will probably restock on your supplies in Florida...
What about your own pesky cat, Anni?

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.


My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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!
