Always look on the bright side of life

After yesterday's moaning session (which helped, thankyouverymuch) I just had to come back this soon to show you something little more positive. And what could be more so than a cute little cat in a little kitty-box? I know, this seems to be turning into a feline-blog but what can one do? I love cats. Anyhow I had a little kitty-pin in my etsy-shop, and it was purchased by sweet someone, who has visited me there earlier also. And you, who have purchased little something from my shop more than once know, that I just need to put something extra into the parcel just to say thank you
This kitty-pin was not that big, so I was thinking of something, that would fit into a smaller bubble wrap envelope. I went through my endless reasonably sized stash of everything-you-might-need-one-day, and spotted a little tin. I actually think have more of these tucked somewhere (used to have some mints inside), but this time I luckily needed just one. And some cardboard, paper, double-sided tape and scissors...
... hello little kitty!
All handmade by me, with 
Sending you all a big smile!

I love the brooch and the tin. Very cheerful and looking on the brighter side!! I love it when you can re-make some packaging.

It's been very cool and wet here. Please send some sunshine.

Soooooooooo cute Mia!! :)
Definitely need something cheery today as our good weather has gone!!!! So thank you, your little cat and it's pretty little home has brought a smile to my face.
It is so grey, wet and miserable here today. I knew it couldn't last but when you get a full week without rain you tend to think that'll never ever rain again!!!!
Silly I know!
Happy Thursday,

Hello dear Vivienne,

I thought you might smile after reading this :)

And I know how you feel: if we haven't had that much of snow/cold before New Year, I just HOPEHOPEHOPE that winter will not come AT ALL that year. Haven't yet happened ;) but every year I keep hoping!

Lovely Thursday!

Hello Teje,

I apologize it seems that I just can't leave a comment on your blog at the moment :( I wish this is a temporary issue!

Have a wonderful weekend soon (again!) and thank you so much for the sunshine, we definitely need some!

I love your kitty brooch in a tin! Your cats always have such lovely faces! I have just been catching up on your posts, and just wanted to say that I hope you can resolve your pricing dilemma so that you don't lose out after putting so much hard work and originality into your makes.
Wishing you a happy sunny week, dear Mia.

Thank you, dear Helen!

These comments you all here leave make me so happy - and brighten any rainy and gray day (which we've had a lot lately)!

I wish you a sunny day!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
