Cozy Cat Cabin

"Cozy Cat Cabin" now on EBAY!

A wood cabin painted on REAL WOOD!

We had to repair part of our fence recently & I had the workers save all the tops of the fence panels they were planning to throw away. They are the perfect "house-shaped" wood blocks great for paintings. I'm starting a series of cabins, cottages, holiday houses & all kinds of dwellings! Stay tuned!

Feline Friday ~ Lizzy's Story

I got an e-mail early this week from a very sweet gal who had a cat show up at her house during our snowstorm last week.  The kitty wouldn't leave so she generously took it in & cared for it even though she already has 5 other cats.  She knew she couldn't keep her, & knowing me & my foster experience through my Etsy Shop & Blog, she asked me for help, and sent along this picture :)How could I say "no" to that sweet face
We met at my vet's building yesterday morning.  She is the nicest woman & "Lizzy" is the sweetest kitty!  She got an exam & vaccs & her tests came out negative (yay).  The vet said she looked to be about a year old & quite healthy.  Took her back in to be spayed this morning & all went well.  She did have roundworms but was treated with a "single dose" med that should take care of those & any other parasites she may have. 
Picking her up this afternoon & will be glad to have her safe in my "foster guest room" where she can rest & feel safe, warm & cozy. 
Planning to foster her for a few more weeks & then hope to find her a new home or get her adopted out from the Humane Society.  If anyone in KANSAS is looking for a gentle, loving, sweetheart of a kitty, I have the purrfect one here!

Have a happy weekend!  xoxox

Feline Friday~Computer Desk Companions

Happy Friday All!

I am never ALONE when I'm working at the computer!  As you can see, I have 2 furry helpers busy at tasks such as taking inventory of cabinets & testing boxes out for naps.  You can't really see it, but Zoolou IS in a box.  I've since gotten her a bigger one!  :)
What would I do without them?

I have a new painting almost finished ~ my FIRST 2011 creation!  Will post pics soon.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh the Possibilities!

HAPPY 2011!

Sorry for my absence but I spent the first week of the New Year sick with the flu or a bad sinus infection or something!  I'm just glad to finally be feeling better so I can get started on some fun new things in my studio!

Above is a collection of things that will soon turn into my first creations of the year!

Old vintage quilt fabric for Cat Dolls
The tops of wood fence boards for paintings 
A sketch all ready for the canvas! 

I had every intention of painting cool Haunted Houses for Halloween & Manger Scenes for Christmas on the house-shaped wood blocks but just ran out of time!  Maybe they can be winter log cabins or spring cottages?

Hope to have something to show you very soon!
We FINALLY got some SNOW today!  Yippeee!!!
