Just in time for:

Black Cat Friday
Small Business Caturday
Cyber-tooth Cat Monday
and Giving Toes-day

My new hip is doing its job and I’ve been busy making things you haven’t seen yet, but not ready for Black Cat Friday—you’ll see them in a week or so. I can’t wait! I wanted to take new photos of many of my items, but my camera needs a repair. Not to worry! In the meantime, scroll down to see a review of what’s available with links to products.

Star of Wonder Votives

Above is the Star of Wonder feline votive which was very popular last year. This glass votive is etched inside by me and finished with a clear label I printed from my artwork “Star of Wonder”.

This votive is made from a purchased cube-shaped glass vase 3.25″ in each dimension and come with an LED tea light. Votives are $10.00 each plus $5.00 shipping, handling and tax, or use the coupon code 2VOTIVES25 to get a $5.00 discount when you purchase two. Visit this post to read more about the votive, the art, and to purchase.

And Holiday Ornaments

Holiday ornaments have also been on my list of “I’m going to figure out how to make that work if I don’t sleep for days” list. “Dusk in the Woods” and “Star of Wonder” are on 1/8″ thick 4″ round polymer clay disks I cut with my cookie cutter, one handpainted and one with an image transfer, ready with hanging hooks for decoration this holiday season. The transfer technique for Dusk in the Woods I’ve been trying to get to work since July, and in both cases I’m so glad not to have to wait one more season before I could offer these. Ornaments are $5.00 each plus $5.00 shipping, handling and tax. Visit this post to read more about them and the art, and to purchase.
