I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day, Mothers Day & is enjoying the new bright nights of spring!
Bit of a rocky start to 2017 for me with my health playing up but now all back on track!
So whats new from me for 2017? A charity campaign!
|Can you spot the black cat?|
Originally it was supposed to launch last year but with one thing on top of another it landed by the wayside but this year I'm making it a priority so I have been designing a range of items that I will be launching via my Etsy shop on Wednesday 29th March.
Not all the items are photographed yet but the range will include:
- Black Cat
- Cat silhouette badge

Catch on to the theme yet?
They are all cat based & I will be donating 50% of all the proceeds (excluding postage & packaging) to Rescue Me Animal Charity until £250 is raised to support their campaign to purchase premises.
You can read all about their amazing work here.
I have thus far already raised £41 from last years dinosaur key-rings & through the sales of items in advance from people who knew I was launching this campaign!
I originally wanted to call this project The Black Cat Campaign due to my love of them (I have my own Tulip) & the stigma that still surrounds adopting black cats. Even Steph, who runs Rescue Me, said of them: it is really tricky to re-home them and my heart always sinks a little when I find out that a cat in need is black as I know they will be with us longer than usual.
However not all the designs ended up being of black cats.
