Selling blog for pet items

I've recently created a selling blog for all of my pet items. My hubby calls our pups Mowzers instead of Bowzers so I thought that would be a great name for a Pet clothing biz. Check it out!

At Mowzers you will find a wonderful assortment of pet items including clothing, collars, leashes, bandanas, pet toys and more. Please be patient though and check back often. I'm currently working on building up my stock and will be adding it as I get it completed.

Any questions you may have you can contact me at

Adorable Handmade Pet Apparel

I've recently acquired two of the cutest Pocket Beagles in the WORLD! Being a seamstress and having small dogs - it just goes hand in hand that I would start making outfits for them. he he he So my newest creations are going to be Handmade Pet Apparel. I've finished two dresses thus far and am having the time of my life! Unfortunately my little Peanut is not quite as overjoyed about it as I am. tee hee hee

Here she is in a Prom Dress I made out of my daughters old Prom Dress. Going green is my thing!

And here is a cute little Red Polka Dot dress that I'm sure will look cute on anyone's furbaby!

Be sure to email me at for any custom orders for your furbabies. Keep watching for more cute pet apparel to come - especially for what ideas I will come up with for some little boy outfits.

Creative Monkeys have been let loose!

rFirst I would like to apologize for not posting anything new recently. I've been quite busy with craft shows, Pensacola Fair and creating new designs. I assure you, you won't be disappointed with my new products.

I'm expecting the new year to bring in more sales, more opportunities and more ideas! Let the creative monkeys loose, I say! Just to highlight some of the things that's been going on........... in October 2009, for the first time ever I placed some items I have created in the Pensacola Interstate Fair. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I won ribbons on EVERYTHING I put up to be judged!!!!!!

First place ribbon for my Zebra Handbag

Second place for my Cupcake Pincushion created out of a jello mold and fancy pins.

And Third place for my Cupcake Baby Rag Quilt.

All of these items as well as many more can be found for sale at my website,

Then in November 2009 I set up my tent at the Old Farmhouse Craft Show for the firsttime and again was pleased with the turn out of people. Especially since we had a hurricane headed for us that week. Which, thank goodness, turned into a tropical storm and caused no damage at all.

As you can see from my display, not only have I improved on my tent and display from when I first started - but I have also increased my volume of products.

Beautiful hand loomed Navajo Rug Necklace, Beaded War Bonnets and Cabachon Jewelry

My beautiful daughter helping out with the shows. You can certainly see the Cherokee heritage in her!

In December I worked on some Pet Carrier bags for my two new Pocket Beagles I've recently adopted. Peanut is posing in the pictures, she's such a wonderful model.

Here's a pet bed I've made for a customer's loved fur baby for Christmas.

And here's the photo they shared with me showing how much their Pug loves their new bed!

I've also designed a new Messenger/Laptop bag. These are great for many purposes and there will be more coming.

Finally, the year has ended and a new one starts. I'm currently working on more jewelry items and getting more listed on my website. So please take the time to see some of my one of a kind creations. Please feel free to contact me for special orders as well!

Happy New Year from Queet at Caterpillar Cottage!

I have recently met a wonderful person on Etsy that creates some of the best clay art I've seen in a while! Her name is Gwen and you can find her at Creative Clay Cottage. Her prices range from the high end to the low end. So there's something for everyone! I'm just amazed at the quality of her work. Below is just a tickle of what she has to offer. I'm sure if she doesn't have what you are looking for she can make it for you.

Rag Quilt Pincushions

Anyone that does sewing can appreciate the size of these rag quilt pincushions. Plenty of space for lots of pins and adorable to boot! How can it get any better?

These were very easy and quick to put together. Stuffed tightly with poly-fil and topped off with cute buttons! If you like the looks of these you can find them at my auction sites called Black Kat Kreations and Modern Cherokee Designs or my website at Caterpillar Cottage.

I'm working on a tutorial so anyone can make these. Perfect items for beginners. So make sure to check back often!
