My final blog before Christmas!!!

I can't actually believe that it is Christmas already, I have barely noticed its arrival as I have spent most of the past 4 months tied to my sewing machine making pieces for exhibitions, commissions and markets. So I am very excited to say that apart from a few custom orders left to complete I have almost finished sewing and I am ready to celebrate my favourite time of year and have a little bit of a break.

I have now finally updated my Etsy store with all remaining pieces and some of them are on sale, so go ahead and have a look there is still time to buy before the big day!

And I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an even better New Year!!!

Its totally Nearly CHRISTMAS!!!

EEEEAAAAKKKKKKKK, Christmas is a coming.
And i do love it, although right now Christmas means a lot of orders to be made.
But I have managed to fit in a lovely one off Creature in between all the commissions and here he is.
He is the 2nd in an edition of only 2, the first sold straight away. This chap is on Etsy so if you think he is the fox for you best snap him up before someone else does x

Also My only Festive Market this year is 'Boscombe Vintage Market' on the 7th December in the Royal Arcade, Boscombe, Bournemouth. So if you want to come and purchase some curious creatures in person I will be there.

A special selection of my work is still available from the Hawthorn Treasured Exhibition in Blandford until the end of December.

Treasured Exhibition

Oh hello,
It's me the one who has a blog and never blogs.
Well I have been very busy and I am attempting to type this blog whilst entertaining a 3 year old and sewing a giant cat so I think I can be let off for my complete lack of blogging skills? Right?

And I do have exciting news........

A selection of my hand made pieces have been included in an actual Exhibition in an actual gallery!! That's not bad hey? See I have been busy. 

And they are obviously for sale so if you can get to Blandford in Dorset between now and the 24th December you can see this amazing exhibition and spend your Christmas money on hand made selected pieces by local artists including little old me!

Along side making pieces for this exhibition I have just finished making the largest order yet for the AGA Gallery in Edmonton Canada, so if you are in Canada you should be seeing my new creatures very very soon. http://www.youraga.ca/shop/shop-aga 

And CHRISTMAS is a approaching fast folks, so please please please place your Christmas orders before the end of October to avoid any disappointment. I have orders coming in fast at the moment and there is only so much I can do, so don't leave it till the last minute.

I will somehow at some point get some stock on Etsy and will Blog once I have updated that and I will also be at my regular pitch at Boscombe Vintage Market on Saturday 2nd November and Saturday 7th December.

You can follow me on Instagram -@thecatintheshoe and on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/the-cat-in-the-shoe/140035802682218 for regular updates of what i am making, selling blah blah blah....

Right that's it I have to go off and pretend to be a pirate now whilst my son ( who is a shark) chases me across the seven seas x

Commissions and Christmas orders?

Oh, Hello. 
Did I actually just mention it, Christmas in August? That seems a little early doesn't it? Even for me and I start humming a Christmas tune from about October.
But last Christmas ( said it again) I was so busy with orders for Christmas presents, decorations and commissions I almost missed it. So this year I am taking CHRISTMAS ORDERS FROM SEPT 1st!!!

I currently have a lot of orders and as its only me here designing and making there is already a bit of a waiting list, so please if you know you want something get in touch at my email address www.thecatintheshoe@mail.com so I wont have to disappoint you at Christmas xx

One commission piece I have just finished is this gorgeous gal and she is off to California in the morning.

Birthdays, hay fever and giant toys

How are you all? Well I hope, enjoying some lovely sun?
 I am a year older as of last Friday and along with a few more wrinkles ( ugh) I have also developed an epic allergy to my garden which is terrific!!!!
So I have locked myself away inside and decided to create some rather special and rather large creatures, so far I have made these two lovelies, measuring approximately 33.5 inches in total ! That's pretty big!

Introducing 'The Cowboy Boot wearing Bunny' and 'The Brogue Wearing Cat', limited edition creatures from moi.
