100 Bags - I Did It!


Yesterday I added 6 wristlets to the Pesky Cat Designs shop and completed the Holiday Boot Camp Challenge! The challenge began on October 2nd and was to have 100 items in my shop by December 1st. At that time I had 40 items in the shop so I needed to complete 60 more. Thanks again Damjana of Loddelina bags for coming up with this great idea to motivate ourselves to work hard. It was my pleasure being you holiday boot camp buddy!
And this morning Etsy celebrated the news by featuring my work on their front page. Just kidding about Etsy celebrating, but I was on the front page!

Yeeeeeeeeees, you did it!

Congratulations, you are a star! I'm sorry I dropped out of the race at the last refreshment stop, sort of, but I'm happy that you made it!

And congratulations on that Front Page feature, your shop is the talk of the town!
I love your new wristlets, I wonder if those owls are washable, they look so yummy and I would hate to think they don't last beyond a few tiny chocolate fingerprints...
Loddelina- Thank you!
I hope the drinks at the refreshment stop were tasty. hehehe You are so funny! And chocolate hands are not permitted near my owl wristlets. But you can wash them. ;)

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!

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…
