Meditating Animal Hoop Art featured in Seattle’s Child Magazine!

Good news for Catshy Crafts! I am so happy to share that my meditating animal hoop art got its second piece of major press. My embroidered felt wall art was featured in the October 2016 issue of Seattle’s Child magazine.

My intention with these sweet pieces was to instill a sense of peace and calmness among the littlest ones, so I am so glad that people are loving this line.

If you live in the Seattle area, you can see these hoop art in person at The Handmade Showroom. I even have a super-sized version of the meditating deer in a street-level display window on 6th Street!

NEW COLLECTION COMING SOON!

As a follow-up to this line, I am about to release a second collection that will coordinate perfectly with the original designs. If you follow me on Instagram (@catshycrafts), you’ve probably seen a few sneak peeks :)

Stay tuned for the Serenity Collection to be released later this month!

Meditate on the cuteness: New Line of Hoop Art

A deer, fox and hedgehog walk into a bar. No, make that a meditation room. Wait, what?

I am so excited to introduce a new line of felt embroidery hoop art inspired by my latest “hobby” a.k.a. de-stressing practice a.k.a. sanity saver…. meditation.

Earlier this summer, I signed up for a 4-day class in transcendental meditation. My new practice has given me peace and serenity and a way to take a break during my hectic summer days.

I already had some “sleepy” animals (fox and bunny) (and clouds) in my Etsy shop. But the more I looked at them, I thought to myself, these creatures look so serene. Kinda like how I feel when I meditate!

So I decided to add a few more animals to my menagerie (hello dear! hiya hedgie!), but instead of seeing them as sleepy, I re-imagined them as meditating zen-loving beings.

I “debuted” them at my pop-up shop at West Elm Seattle, but now I am offering them in my Etsy shop!

For local folks, they will be available at The Handmade Showroom in downtown Seattle later this month.

And… they even got a mention in today’s Sunday Seattle Times!
