Are you ready? Fall/Winter 2017 Collection Coming Soon!

Grateful Heart Collection Ad 1

Imagine a steaming mug of chai tea on a nippy autumn day that warms you from the inside out.

Or a pile of freshly raked leaves inviting you to take a leap into its soft bed.

Or your favorite cashmere sweater wrapping you up in cozy comfort.

Fall is here. And so is my never-before-seen, brand-new 10-piece collection of wall art!

 

The Grateful Heart Collection celebrates gratitude and joy in your life during this season of giving thanks and gathering with loved ones.

I can’t wait to share the new line with you on October 23.

Saying Goodbye to the Winsome Collection

lastchance

I am so excited to let you know that I am working on a new mini-collection for you! But before I can reveal my new line, I will be retiring the Winsome Collection, which debuted in April.

Releasing a 10-piece line was so exciting. Seattle Refined named my hoop art a “best gift for your Seattle mama,”sold multiple pieces, debuted my line at The Handmade Showroom in downtown Seattle and got lots of amazingly positive feedback from you, lovelies.

Eight of the ten pieces will be retiring and no longer available in my Etsy shop as of August 7. What about the other two pieces? Good question, lovely! Only your top favorites (i.e. best sellers) will remain in the shop.

So if you had your eye on one of the pieces, now is your time to pick one up before they go away forever.

xo, Cathy

she believed she could so she did : how I became BRIKA’s featured maker

Funny story. About 4 years ago, I applied for BRIKA – a curated marketplace that I thought was full of amazing handmade art and goods. I loved making hoop art and playing with felt and creating wall art, but was always taken aback when someone would like it and actually buy one!

Surprisingly, I was accepted to BRIKA. I couldn’t quite believe that I was chosen and didn’t quite believe I was good enough to be there. I didn’t quite believe in myself. So, I never sent in my photos or information and quietly let this opportunity pass.

Fast forward to this spring. I sent my application in a second time, and lo and behold, I got accepted once again. I still had my doubts but that fearful voice was a little quieter. That voice of not being good enough was being drowned out by one that said “yes you are good enough”.

So many things had changed since the last time I was accepted. The biggest change was my divorce after 15 years of marriage. Suddenly, my divorce made my business so much more vital to me – more than financially, but as a creative outlet that sustained me through this transformation. This business gave me a focus. Grounded me. It made me grow. It brings me joy and today I want to share that joy with you.

So it is with pride and joy that I announce that……

Today I am a featured maker on BRIKA – a curated marketplace of 400+ makers of well-crafted goods. I am so honored to be chosen to showcase my embroidered felt hoop art. And proud of myself for finally showing up for this newest opportunity.

To go along with my 8-piece collection, I created an exclusive design just for BRIKA. With aqua, sky blue, lilac and a touch of butter yellow, this floral 3D hoop art makes me happy. Happy to have continued making art. Happy to have said yes. Happy to create art for your home.

Thanks so much for being a part of my life. I am creating art for you! I hope you like it.

And I hope that if you are doubting yourself today, I hope that you can release some of those doubts and go after what you are desiring.

The Winsome Collection Has Launched!

10 new designs | personalization available on select hoop art

 

After months of planning and designing (and re-designing), my new Spring 2016 collection – The Winsome Collection – has finally been released into the world!

With butterflies in my stomach, I can finally share my entire 10-piece collection.

I was inspired by the colors of spring and the reawakening of hope and growth during this season.

For the first time, I also added some neutral options to the mix! With corals and pink and accents of dove grey and gold, these wall art will add a fresh look to your little girl’s room or your home.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
