Night of the Crafters is tonight!

Those crazy girls of Scary CRAFT are doing their thing again tonight! You should join them.

Tonight, Dy of DyMa Creations is doing a Make & Take Tutorial that will knock your socks hats off!

Little Black Hats by DyMa Creations!

How do you think one of these hats would look on me? I think they would look fabulous AND they wouldn't cover my pretty ears!

Skelekitty (& more) Bottlecap Jewelry

It's true! Mom finally got off her butt and listed some bottlecap pendants featuring me (and some stupid shoes) on Etsy!

Each pendant comes on an 18 or 20" ball chain with clasp and is only $17 (earrings will soon be available for $20/pair).

These are also going to be carried at the one and only Grind & Groove in Midtown Sacramento (verrrrrry soon).

Here's one (of me):

More choices...

and even MORE choices!

It's For Keeps Now!

Well skeleboys and skelegirls, all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed! That means that the four designs of little ol' me will be sent off to the engravers any day, and we'll have rubber skelestamps to play with soon.

For those of you who are fortunate enough to live in the Santa Fe area, you'll be able to drop in on Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps this Fall for your Skelekitty stamps by StampaFe!

If you're actually near Santa Fe, you should wander up to this awesome little store RIGHT NOW and check out all of the non-Skelekitty goodness (of which there is much, like Our Lady of Rubber and more). The class list is pretty darned amazing too (I bet I would be lots of fun "helping" with those). They're just off the Plaza and up a flight. You have no excuses, really.

Of course, quite a few of us live outside of the Santa Fe, NM area (yours truly, included). Luckily for all of us, all of the stamps designed by StampaFe are available for secure online purchase here. The women of Our Lady and StampaFe are in the process of moving all of the ordering onto the interwebs, but it's not a Big Box Store operation (thankfully!), so only StampaFe designs can be put in your virtual shopping basket. HOWEVER, be not deterred! You can download pdf catalogs for Our Lady of Rubber (my personal favorite - lots of muertos!) and Willard Clark's Santa Fe/Southwest designs. They also have four pages of Kate Cartwright's stunning goddess stamps for your viewing pleasure. Write down what ya want and give the nice folks there a call to confirm prices and order whatever stamps your heard desires (psssst! They're really nice there).

I hope you are all doing well! Skelekitty rubs to you.

This Kitty LOVES Linky Love

Giving is great - don't get me wrong. Oh, but receiving linky love makes this kitty squeeze her eyes with sheer feline happiness!

In the middle of her Spread the Sparkle Tour to launch the new line of Crafty Chica (by Duncan) craft supplies, kits and products, Kathy Cano-Murillo posted about the line of Skelekitty stamps coming out this Fall! Thanks so very, Miss Kathy!

My mom finally finished writing part 1 of reviews on the goodies she brought home from Michael's - all sporting the Crafty Chica label (no catnip - what's she thinking?). If she doesn't get distracted with all the pretty glitters, I think the rest of the product review(s) should be up this week.

Well, it's kitty-nap-time.

New Awesome Site for Mixed-Media Addicts

I just found this wonderful site featuring weekly challenges by guest artists from around the world: MIXED-MEDIA MONDAY - the newest recipient of the SKSoA! This week's challenge is a fun one by Joan from Italy - you've heard of "inchies" and "twinchies," but now we have an official challenge to make a "thrinchie" (whichas you might imagine, is 3"x3" artwork).

Want to participate? Here's an explanation right from the source:

How to Participate
Create your mixed media piece, according to the current theme and upload it to your blog, or picture trail etc., then add a link to Mixed Media Monday. Then post a comment on Mixed Media Monday with a direct link to your artwork.

You all know I'm a kitty who craves a challenge, so I'm thrilled to get my paws on this site. Thanks so much for the lovely and talented Collage Contessa, who linked to this and led to my discovery!

I'm Kind Of A Big Deal

I am being immortalized in rubber stamps!

Special thanks to Lee Kellogg of Stampa Fe Rubber Stamps for taking me on! We met Lee at her AWESOME store, Guadalupe Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe, NM during a visit in May and she fell in love with me (how could you not?)

More special thanks to Kathy Murillo (aka The Crafty Chica) for convincing my Mom, Krissi, that she could actually do something like this and to Yoli Manzo (aka Sacred Snatch) for her undying support and willingness to listen.

Stay tuned for more information like contests, prices and the release date, which should be in early October!
