My Cat's Eyes are Working Overtime...

These Cat's Eyes, that is (my real cat is old and cranky- I don't ask him to work on anything)....I use them on almost every single piece of paper that leaves the studio.



My business basket is full of things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving week.



And THIS is the most exciting (but not the only thing in the basket)...


My salt and pepper shaker gift tags were chosen to be included in the December issue of Country Living Magazine , in an article featuring Christmas ornaments on Etsy (page 61 if you want to flip straight to it). I love all of the ornaments featured, a really nice showcase of Etsy talent....

What a thrill! Seriously...beyond thrilling...beyond any very grateful, thankful happy dance I have ever done for Sunshine and Ravioli...I am as high as a kite and any other happy as a clam cliche you can come up with!

Here's my other thankful for it item this week...

See that yellow star in the bottom row? That's my vintage spoon ornament in the Etsy voter this week!

Here's a closer view...And here's my SOS...

Can you help me? I would LOVE to break the top ten (as of Wednesday morning, I'm at #11). Yes, I'm just thrilled to be included and I don't expect to win, but I would really, really like to finish respectably...

If you can spare a vote, head on over to the Voter and cast your ballots...

THANK YOU!!

And last but not least, a peek at what else has been keeping me busy...custom orders...lots of them!



This is a recent favorite, for a holiday themed baby shower (it's a boy, can you tell?). This is the first shower I have made place markers for and I think they turned out great! I have to thank my creative customer for this one- never would have thought to use these images for baby showers (OK, maybe the deer, but the others....).

Alright, there's a turkey to prep (I'll be using this recipe-the juiciest non fried turkey ever!) and pies to be made...

I hope this Thanksgiving finds you with plenty to be grateful for...

Until next time (I can't get my sig to upload!),
