A Rainbow-Flanked Magical Caticorn // New in the Store


A Rainbow-Flanked Magical Caticorn // New in the Store

After the launch of my new collection last week, I wanted to take a little time to show off each new item, or set of new products, on the store, and talk about where the design came from. And picking one of my favourite of the lot, and one who guys are loving, seemed to be the perfect place to start. Unicorns seem to be hitting their peek at the moment, and I wanted to do something with this mythical creature. But I felt I wanted something a little different from the standard unicorn. I am, obviously, obsessed with cats, so why not a caticorn? Buy the Magical Caticorn Cosmic Rainbow Collection Inspired by my British Shorthair cat, Monty, and a...

Wish List // 6 Literature-Inspired Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers & Nerds


Wish List // 6 Literature-Inspired Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers & Nerds

As Christmas is quickly sneaking up on us, I thought I'd pull together my book-themed products for a little wish list; you can find even more gifts for bibliophiles over on the store's Book Nerd section.

Wish List // 10 Adorably Fun Christmas Gifts for Cat Lovers


Wish List // 10 Adorably Fun Christmas Gifts for Cat Lovers

As Christmas is quickly sneaking up on us, I thought I'd pull together my cat-themed products for a little wish list; you can find even more gifts for crazy cat ladies over on the store's Sofa Beast section. With prices between £2 and £12, these items would make perfect stocking stuffers for all those crazy cat ladies (and gentlemen) out there. 1. British Shorthair Kitty with Glasses Enamel Lapel Pin // £7 My newest cat-themed item.

My Work // Cats. Books. Life is Good | Wooden Brooch of a Blue Tabby Reading a Book


My Work // Cats. Books. Life is Good | Wooden Brooch of a Blue Tabby Reading a Book

Anyone who has been reading my blog or following my work for even a short time will know that there are two things I love more than almost everything else; cats and books. I adore Edward Gorey, so when I came across a quote from him, "Books. Cats. Life is good", I knew I wanted to use it in someway. Then I remembered that one of the first photos I’d ever taken of our youngest cat, Monty, was of him ‘reading’ one of my Haruki Murakami’s novels (I’m a big fan, if you hadn’t noticed). And these two things just sounded like they’d be perfect partners.
