Holiday Boot Camp Update

In case you missed my original post, the Holiday Boot Camp Challenge is to have 100 items in the shop by December 1st. That goal was set on October 2nd at which time there were 40 bags in the Pesky Cat Designs shop so 60 more needed to be created. The idea came from the very talented Damjana of Loddelina bags. This challenge is not a competition, just a way to push ourselves to work towards a goal. During the holiday season it is good to have as much inventory as possible in your shop and this challenge has really helped me focus and work toward my goal. There are 16 more days left until December 1st and I still need to create 22 more items. In the next couple of weeks I'll have to find the perfect stride to gallop to the finish line! 


I love that bag...aren't horses becoming popular motivs at the moment. The fabric is very chic, cheers Katherine

Very lovely pouch!
Whoa! That purse is a show-stopper! I love the added detail of the inside band--and it goes so well with the overall effect!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!

I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it!

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!
