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. ;)

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.

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!
