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!

My super-sized embroidery hoop in-progress. Sewing on the balcony a few short weeks ago.


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!

Little Ones’ Spaces: My 5 Favorite Kids Decor Blogs

I’m a big fan of kids decor blogs.

I love to keep up with design trends and soak up as much lovely inspiration and eye candy as I can. It’s no coincidence that many of my wonderful customers who buy my heartfelt hoop art and yarn wreaths are buying them to decorate their little ones’ spaces — nurseries, kids’ rooms and play rooms. After all, my first “customers” of my hoop art were my young daughters (now 9 and 5).

Here are my five favorite kids decor blogs right now.

1. Lay Baby Lay

Joni Lay, an Altlanta mom to two beautiful daughters, writes about “fresh and unique nursery inspiration with a little dose of motherhood experience.” I love her nursery style boards which are modern and colorful with touches of vintage. Bonus: Her posts about her daughters are filled with beautiful photographs.

2.  BloesemKids

Irene Hoofs, a graphic designer and mom to two boys, has been sharing her passion for design, art and craft since 2008. She also authors the popular BloesemLiving blog.

BloesemKids is modern, stylish and vintage-inspired at the same time – a perfect combination for design-conscious parents.

 3. Honest to Nod

Unlike the other blogs on this list, this blog is written by a team of various guest bloggers and designers.  A collaborative blog presented by The Land of Nod – my favorite kids store ever! In addition to playful and modern design ideas, the blog shares DIYs, party ideas, recipes and family-friendly activities.

 4. Spearmint Baby

Shari is a stay at home mom/blogger living in Scottsdale, AZ who is obsessed with mama and baby stuff. Packed with nursery inspiration and gift ideas, this blog also shares birth stories and DIY projects.

5. A Lovely Lark

Lauren is mama to two sweet little girls, Violet and Lucy. From her beautiful home in Central Pennsylvania, she writes about DIY project, kids design and handmade finds! Her blog is right up my alley!
