I’m making a mess around the house, heavily into making things now that I have the time and materials, plus I’m making arrangements for vetting and eventual shelter/rescue placement for the calico rescued Tuesday, and a friend wants to visit the Greenbriar kittens. A few people have stopped by to shop too. And as you’ve seen, Mariposa is exploring the house. I am in over my head, but don’t want to miss too many days of posting as I have been lately. This way you know what I’m up to!

The selection above is just a small selection of what’s available for under $20.00 on my site. I’d love to know something I made was in your home, and you know that every purchase supports not only my household, but a lot of cats and people outside of us. I hope you see something you’d like for yourself, or to give as a gift to a family or friend.

In the meantime, I’m making even more…


They’re behind me aren’t they?

Take a look at other new merchandise and featured artwork.

Marketplace is a feature on The Creative Cat to share the latest coming out of my studio with my readers. Once a week on Thursday I feature something new in my “shop” .
