Tiny But Feisty Productions

One of my Catnip Studio Too paper goods customers, Brenda, is a delightful correspondent and she recently sent me photos of what she had done with some of my gift tags. I was so pleased to see the results of her creativity and inspired embellishments that I thought you would enjoy them, too. Brenda makes greeting cards as a hobby, and I will be very excited to see her open her own shop someday. Brenda, AKA "A Tiny But Feisty Production", thank you so much for your friendship and loyalty!

Hark! I Hear the Angels Calling

Hear the Angels Calling Tags

I've been working on digital collages using antique clip art, and printing the results into paper tags. I often work into the wee hours editing, coloring, and enhancing the images - time just flies by! I vaguely remember being just as enchanted by my coloring books and crayons once upon a time.

Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage Goodness!

One of my very favorite places to visit is Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage, and I'm a longtime and ardent fan of her birdy tags and fabric accessories. I recently purchased these cheery and charming red toile birdy tags, and the snaptop bag is for my digital camera (and it's a perfect fit), though it was intended for a cell phone. I must draw your attention to the bird tag packaging - such lovely details like the punched edges, and the flower magnet (YES, magnet! brilliantly stuck to the package staple, I love this detail so much I want to steal the concept for my own packages (bad Kathy, bad, bad, Kathy)! And the camera/cell phone pouch is darling, I tell you! The pattern and color, the ricrac trim with Mrs. Kwitty's hand stitching for accent, and the button to finish - perfection. Just perfection. Oh, I forgot the outer packaging - in my favorite color, aqua, and with another beautifully detailed gift tag!

My Angel from RoseTree Creations

Back in September, I signed up for two ornament swaps at Audrey's Country Crafts , and by October I had my assigned swap partners. Sadly, as most of you know, my sister, Angel, fell suddenly ill in mid-October and passed away October 29th, and my swap partners were willing to wait until I could get back home and back into my studio work. I've now mailed their decoupage ornaments, and just recently received a very special ornament from Sandy of RoseTree Creations. She let me know that she had made one especially for me, and now that I have it, I understand - I have to tell you, it brought tears to my eyes when I first saw it, and I will treasure it forever. Thank you, Sandy, for your thoughtfulness and kindness in making an ornament for my sister, Angel.
