New Year, New creations

Say goodbye to this purple Moogle tie! By the time I write this, it should be arriving at its destination very soon. I was worried that bright purple would be a little too bold of a color, but then I remembered that all of these neckties I paint feature crazy characters anyways…so that’s probably the least of someone’s concern. I’d like to paint some more Final Fantasy-themed neckties soon. I just have to figure out what!

With the new year here, I’m starting to gear up for “wedding season”! I have a lot of new cake topper ideas in the works, including some cats and foxes!
As usual, I’m all over the place and plans may change. (I’m also working on something super top secret!) But as of right now, cake toppers – that’s my focus! Well…and maybe shoes…and maybe neckties. Gah! I need more hands. As always, I still take custom requests, so even if I don’t have what you’re looking for listed, chances are I can make it for you.


A New Litter

I’ve been working on a fresh batch of kitties for the past few days. These ones are a bit bigger than my regular kitty figurines, and are made of hard plastic (instead of poly clay)! I cast all of these from that kitty silicone mold I made earlier. I’m loving that I can make a whole bunch quickly leaving more time to play around with some new ideas. Namely, their eyes. I love the simplicity of the black dots on my smaller kitty figurines, but sometimes you just want something a little more expressive. Plus, if I wanted to do something like red eyes, simple dots just looked a little too demonic to me.

The shop is closed right now while I work on a few order stragglers and play around with some ideas that have been simmering in my brain.  But hopefully soon I’ll have everything back up, including this batch of kitties listed. Lots of picture taking needed.

I think besides just sitting pretty on a shelf, this size kitty would make a nice wedding cake topper.  Especially on a larger cake.  I used to have kitty cake toppers in my shop, but as usual, one project falls to the back burner when you’re working on another!  I also got a revived obsession with Minecraft again, so that’s been eating some of my time.

Can you guess who these kitties are supposed to be?? I hope so! With the whole Sailor Moon revival with the 20th anniversary, I’ve had some cutesy ideas floating around in my head.
Say hello to Luna & Artemis! I’m not sure yet if I want to sell them as a set or separately. These ones I think would make cute cake toppers. Just add a little tulle veil and maybe a top hat and we’re good to go. Or not! I also have an idea involving the Sailor Scouts, but I’ll save that for another post.


And here’s a real kitty. This is my “garbage kitty” Eevee. She’ll sit in any boxes I put near the garbage can. Garbage kitty does not approve of these empty wine bottles.
