New Shop and New Art Pins/Magnets!

Hey everyone! I’ve added new acrylic pins to my Blog Shop today. You have the option for magnet or pinback. Please allow three days before shipping as I’ll be adding the back of your choice at sale. I’m using a new shop on my blog website because my Zibbet Shop doesn’t have the correct menu functions for pinback/magnet. I will eventually be moving all my items over to this new shop, so pardon any dust! If you run into any issues, please let me know!

New Painting and a Flash Sale!

Oh Monday… So I took my diabetic kitty to the vet’s today for a check up and to renew his prescription for the Lantus pen and got shocking news. Apparently he’s got gum disease and they want to remove his teeth. They said it would help with his numbers, as any underlying infection can mess with his diabetes. You can imagine the shock of hearing this. So we got a referral to a vet in Pittsburgh and are awaiting a ballpark price for such a procedure. I figured, you know, I have a lot of paintings, let’s have a sale and see if we can move some of these to new homes and also raise some funds! So all original paintings are 25% off in my shop, including my newest painting, Black Cat and Spring Flowers!

New Art Pins Are Ready!

Hooray! I have managed to make more, sans cat fur! If you need a touch of green for St. Patrick’s Day, or for any day! This is a very limited run of art pins, as I wasn’t planning on making more with clay. I’m still learning Blender 3D so I can 3D print the pins instead of smooshing clay-which is not my favorite thing to do. Anyway, these are now live in my Zibbet shop!

New Handmade Pins With a Touch of Green!

So, I was planning on announcing a limited run of new pins today or tomorrow, but that’s been pushed back until probably Monday. Silly me thought I had the perfect spot in another room, high on a shelf, for the resin to dry. To my surprise, I discovered this morning that this shelf is not cat-free! You can imagine my horror when I saw my cute pins there, with strands of cat fur hanging off of them! ha…sigh. I had 8 pins, and now I have 5. (I mean it was a very limited run.) So now I am painting 14 more brooches that should be ready (and cat fur free) by Monday.

I’ve got them all made, baked, and sanded! The vehicles are both going to be the happy green, same as the glasses in the finished pins. I’m still debating on if the vans are going to be white/green, or just full green. We’ll have to wait and see! 

Also, I am working on new acrylic pins at some point this weekend as well, using my dancing Irish cats that I will be illustrating on the iPad. So keep an eye out for those.
