Welcome to my illustrated blog where you'll find stories and art about cat ladies, pet lovers, nature enthusiasts, my cat Buttonwillow and her friend Inka, and my creative life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Enjoy!
Ladies! Forget about that quest for eternal happiness as you search high and low for the perfect pair of shoes. It's not about the shoes. It's all about the SHOE BOX! I've searched high and low and behold: I've found the perfect fit...
A day on which you might find yourself a little pooped from
the many festivities of the last few weeks...
Buttonwillow suggests enjoying a clearance sale from
the comfort of your couch (jammies and slippers are recommended attire).
We've discounted over 100 items in our Etsy shop, up to 50% off of jewelry and gifts, and
we will be adding more throughout the week. Get 'em while they're hot! Then
go take that well-deserved nap.
First of all, I'm thankful for my Kickstarter backers.
Thanks to you, my Kickstarter project
has met its financial goal and it will be funded when it ends on Tuesday! Cue the
fireworks! I'm so excited that I will now be able to take my "A Bouquet
From The Cat" designs to our local printer and have them made up into
cards and giclee prints.
To celebrate, I'm adding these two new cat
designs to the original 16 choices (thank you to everyone who voted yesterday):
And I'd LOVE to add MORE designs.
So here is my stretch goal:
For each $100 that I raise beyond my goal in the next 5 days, I'll be able add another 2
designs to be printed up. So my first stretch goal is to reach $1300,
and I'll add two more new designs. Here are the 8 designs that are
now in the running:
Please vote for your favorite 2 new designs in the comments
section of this blog post. Voting will end tomorrow night, Thurs.
November 28 at 8 p.m PST. I will also be accepting votes on my Facebook page and my Kickstarter update #3, but please, only one vote per person (that is, one vote
for two designs). NOTE: The kitty designs above are just thumbnails; the
actual color of the prints and notecards will vary slightly from what
you see on your screen... We have just five days left to reach
any stretch goals, so please help spread the word. Even the smallest
pledges add up fast! Thanks for sharing my project link with all of
your cat-loving friends: http://kck.st/1bnprOr
the mean time, I'm counting my blessings: family and friends, my
kitties, my art supplies, a warm house, food in my fridge, the beauty of
Mother Nature, and generous strangers. I hope all of you have a
blessed and delicious Thanksgiving tomorrow, and I look forward to fulfilling the pledge rewards over the next few months.
Hello Beloved Backers old and new! Thank you, thank you, fantastic
feline fanatics, for your generosity in supporting this project. As of
this writing, we are just $40 shy of the funding goal, so I have great
confidence that hitting the $1200 mark is very close at hand.
celebrate, I am going to add two new designs to the original 16. That's
where you come in. Buttonwillow has pointed out that I've been a little
stingy with the long-haired cats, so I have four new fluffy kitties
waiting in the wings: a brown tabby, a white cat, a gray and white cat,
and a tortoiseshell. I've made up two different thumbnails of each with

Facebook page and Kickstarter Update #2, but please, only one vote per person (that is, one vote for two designs-- clear as mud, right?).

For each $100 we reach beyond the $1200 goal, I will be able to add
another TWO designs to be printed! For example, if we reach $1500, I'll
be adding 6 new designs to the original 16.
We are in the home
stretch now with just a week left of the campaign. Help me reach this
new goal by sharing my Kickstarter project with all of your favorite
crazy cat ladies and cat guys on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Here
