Crafty about Cats......and other animals.
I have loved animals all my life.
I first obtained my very first Burmese cat in 1981 which started me on a cat craze. I also bred these beautfiul cats and showed them for 25 years.
During this time I became more creative and started sewing and selling various items using animal fabrics, and also taking up decoupage
I love making practical items that are actually used or given as gifts.
Horses are my second love, and I follow all equestrian sports. I even owned my own horse for a while!
I enjoy many varied craft activities, but am restricted to what I list in my shop due to the cost of postage on heavy or bulky items.
My handmade items are made in a smoke free and pet free home.
