Getting Ready for the Grand Opening...

Last night, I swung by The Nest to drop off my first load of goodies for their shop grand opening. I made sure to bring my trusty camera with me so you can have a look at my newest venture!

The paint is barely dry on the walls (co-owner, Ben, told me that he was at the gallery until 1:30 the previous night painting), and the protective papers are still hung over the shop's frint windows. But that didn't stop a steady stream of folks from wandering in during a special pre-opening show...

Even though things are still in a bit of a disarray, many of my creatures had no trouble finding themselves little nooks here and there to look absolutely adorable!

In fact, The Nest is excited to have two of the very first available of my new Cotton Puppy design!

There is still much to be done before September 1, but I think this is going to be a great adventure for me. If you're in the Cleveland area, I hope you'll mark your calendar!


  1. WOW, this looks so very exciting. Wishing you all the best with this new venture.

  2. It's sure coming together quickly and looking very good! You must be on Cloud Nine! I know I would be if it were me . . .

    I sas the photo of the cotton puppy and he is Adorable! Just as cute as the kitties. I just finished #7 today!

    Enjoy having a showing to the max! You have worked hard, and are still working hard, and you deserve to enjoy it!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement, guys! I am really really excited about this - for sure!

    ... and I promise... as soon as I'm done getting the rest of the inventory together for The Nest, I will focus COMPLETELY on the puppy pattern!

  4. Wish I could come! I love these types of shops!
