I have always loved making things.Unfortunately for 26 years I worked at 7-11 and had very little spare time in which to create.Those 60 hr weeks didnt leave much energy to do anything but do minimal housework and sleep!
Ive had fibromyalgia and arthritis(you name a joint in my body and its arthritic!) since grade school.All the stress,standing,and lifting heavy merchandise finally took its toll on my body.I struggled with major pain for YEARS,but in my last year of work I became unable to do a lot of the jobs required of me.Not even counting the physical aspects of the job like stocking the cooler and shelves.etc.....its really "Interesting" trying to make coffee, get hot dogs for people,sweep,or empty trash while using a cane.Without the cane.....I go splat a lot.

So,in the last 2 yrs Ive had knee surgery(and still need a replacement!) and 3 level spinal fusion.I STILL cant stand or walk for very long.Income was cut in half and finances are VERY shaky. I admit it....Im scared we wont have a roof over our heads soon.Ive been trying to sell my creations at craft shows and online.I have SOOOO many ideas in my head of things to do.I hope some of you out there will want to buy some of my creations for your very own.My cats are pampered and dont want to lose their cushy lifestyle!
Im still experimenting with some things to put on here.You will notice 3 recurring themes.CATS,Volkswagens,and Healing Crystals,Gemstones ,etc.EVENTUALLY I hope to have an abundance of items in these themes. I LOVE my Cats and I LOVE my VW Bug! Thus.....PurrBug. Im also toying with Catnip Creations......Unique and ecclectic creations that will make you Purrrrrr. LOL!
SO,WELCOME TO MY WORLD.Look around,Enjoy,and hopefully something will jump out and grab you,begging to come to your house to live.
