I, SoftBot

February 11, 2009By KarenFlying the Geek Flag High, Plush Dolls, Worky McWorkalot

Between another sickness and projects involving metal and tools, the sewing machine has been pretty silent around the LwithT studio. But there is always room in our hearts for both metal AND fabric, so the SoftBot was created to bridge the gap. He’s a prototype for future robots that will hopefully make their way to … Read More

Here kitty, kitty

January 15, 2009By KarenEtsy Shop, New Items, Plush Dolls

Cats rule! Dogs drool! No, not really, but 4 new cats have made their way into the Etsy shop! There will be an update soon for more severed leg cat toys too! That’s almost as cool as a nap in the fresh laundry pile.

Blue Christmas

December 26, 2008By KarenCats, Life with Tigers HQ

The tradition around here at the LwithT Studio is that Christmas cards usually go out late. But due to the passing of our President this past November, Christmas cards won’t go out at all this year. Instead, in honor of Misha, I’ve decided to feature just a few of the holiday cards from Christmases past. … Read More

It wasn’t a bust

December 18, 2008By KarenCraft Fairs

In fact, the Bust Magazine Holiday Craftacular went pretty well. The severed leg cat toys sold out, and the response to the mushroom topiaries was very complimentary. I am so grateful to all who stopped by with kind words of encouragement. I’ve received a few e-mails too from you guys, so thanks to everyone…I enjoyed … Read More

Oh, this is Craptacular

December 12, 2008By KarenCraft Fairs, Graphic Depictions of Crafting

Here we are, less than 3 days to the Bust Magazine Holiday Craftacular and I’ve been a busy bee here sewing up all kinds of goodies. Our booth number will be #32, by the way (towards the right hand side wall when you finally get into the main floor area). There was some concern that … Read More

Giving Thanks

November 27, 2008By KarenCraft Fairs

It’s Thanksgiving again, and while it is a sad time here at the studio due to our recent loss, there are still things to be thankful for. I am thankful that there are still tigers in the world and in my home. I am thankful for the kind words of support and love I’ve received … Read More

Life without Tiger

November 10, 2008By KarenCats, Feline Staff, Life with Tigers HQ

His name was Mishiko. He liked guests. He liked freshly swept floors. He liked to jump into boxes too tall for him. He liked deli slices. He liked sleeping on the sofa bed. He had the heart of a lion, but the roar of a kitten. His purrs sounded like pigeons. He liked to help … Read More

Greetings, Little Doggie

November 9, 2008By KarenLife with Fibers, New Items

We love paper. Always have. So we are adding blank greeting cards to the shop soon. These little babies have real fabric on them! There will be kitty and monkey cards to, but here’s a sneak peak of the doggie cards: Working on these cards has helped distract us here at Life with Tigers HQ, … Read More

Robot Love

November 3, 2008By KarenFlying the Geek Flag High, Worky McWorkalot

Who is this handsome fellow? He’s the newest creation around the studio these days. See, we here at Life with Tigers HQ are big fans of robots, and we wanted one of our own. He lives in a diorama with it’s own lighting system in a dark corner, which makes him look like he’s performing … Read More
