As we wrap up the year, my mind has been working overtime with ideas for the Tabby Cat. I have had time to reflect on what I have done so far and where I want to go.

I am so excited for the arrival of 2011. New item will be pouring into the shop. Some of the items will be upcycled and some will be new.   I enjoy the creation process and finding ways to add to the beauty of everything around me.

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family who supports my endeavors. They are my greatest fans.

As the new year arrives I wish for each of you, joy and peace for the coming year.

The wild side

I enjoy looking at magazines and finding the unexpected things in a room.  It may be that small touch of whimsy that adds the special class to the room.  I wanted to try my hand at creating something, which one would not expect to find.

The creation of my zebra bottle was just for that purpose, finding the unexpected.  I wanted something for the wild side. Future plans for The Tabby Cat include creating an entire collection of bottles and other accessories for the wild side. Look for new items in the near future..

I am concerned on how we treat our planet.  I am looking for ways to give old items a new life. I like the term up-cycling as opposed to recycling.  I enjoy giving a new life to an old object.  After opening up The Tabby Cat, I have started looking for way to reuse items that would normally be thrown away.  That gave birth to the bottles in my shop.  Some are painted and some decoupage. Even the material I use to decoupage is up-cycled.  I am looking forward to finding new and creative ways to add to the shop. So check back and follow The Tabby Cat on this amazing journey

My Etsy Shop: TheTabbyCat

I have started a new adventure, opening and managing an online shop of my own creations.  I am not sure where this venture will take me but I am looking forward to the journey.
