Happy Mew Year

New Inspirations for 2022
Building on 2021

My goal for 2021, with my newly-established studio spaces, well-stocked materials and updated equipment, was to create more new things in the new year. But what became my motivational force was actually updating the way I made the things I had already designed. I not only had more space, but I had the capacity to make things with quicker and easier methods, and better outcomes.

The Creative Cat Preview newsletter is set up to be just that: a preview newsletter for those of you who follow to get the first look at new designs, and the chance to buy them. While I followed this updating process I thought I’d hold the next newsletter until I came back to new products, thinking it would be one or two newsletters, but it was more like eight…Still, I’m glad I took the time for these changes because now, when I design something, I have more and better options for not only making that idea a reality, but I can actually make more things and more of each one, and that’s going to “make” 2022.

The Creative Cat Preview newsletter is published to subscribers at the middle or near the end of each month so they can enjoy seeing new items and my offers and information first. I also include any updates on my TNR activities, fosters, rescues and my feline household. I’ll include events and exhibits as they come up, and often I’ll share an article or two as well. I share it during the following month to the rest of my followers on The Creative Cat.

Please feel free to read this edition here: Happy Mew Year – There’s a discount on boxed holiday cards in there for you too as well as a little gallery of some of my favorite photos from last year.

If you’d like to subscribe to this newsletter, you can use the “update your preferences” link at the bottom of the newsletter, or you can sign up here.
