Promises, promises. But this time, it’s finally true! A new doll design has found it’s way into the shop, inspired by cats that act like monkeys. This is Kirby, and he’s actually a chimp (no tail!) He’s got another monkey friend, but he may not make his way out of the studio because we’ve grown so fond of him! New dogs have made it into the shop as well, and 6 (count ’em, 6) new topiaries are almost done and will appear very soon!
We’ve been busy here at the Life with Tigers studio, and it’s amazing how fast time flies when you are distracted, diverted, lazy, locked away and generally disfunctional. So what’s been going on here?
New products are finally on the way. Over at the Etsy Shop, there are new Fabric Topiaries, Cat Toys, and coming up, lovely handmade greeting cards, at least 3 new dogs and….drumroll….monkeys! Have a peek at one of the topiaries.
We’ve been sitting on the edge of our seats here, cheering for Uno at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. (He won!) There are dogs all over New York this week, and Olivia here is taking in the sights, although it got a bit windy for her taste! She has settled into the Etsy shop until she can find a permanent home, preferably someplace less breezy.
Once in a while, the sun pokes through the winter skies here in the Borough of Kings. That’s when kitties with flowers come out for a breath of fresh air, away from radiator heat, leftover holiday food and the “back to work” duldrums. This kitty is modeled after a beloved feline friend.
Here is a zipper pouch made from wool and cotton with some charming lining. These are fun to make, so you’ll probably see some more in the near future. Not tonight, however, because it’s Christmas Eve and there’s fresh pie waiting! Yes, of course with ice cream. Silly.
Here we go…
The website at www.lifewithtigers.com is still under construction, but I’d LOVE to thank Melissa and Rachel for purchasing several of the dolls already before it ever went live. I’m very pleased that someone will be receiving handmade goodies for Christmas!
