About

Pets and beyond

Late one evening in the winter of 2011, I was sitting on my couch, eating bonbons, watching episodes of Arrested Development. A blustery wind rattled my windows, and I pulled my afghan closer around myself. I glanced around my studio. Paint sat unopened. Pens were nestled into an old pickle jar, not one dried up from use. My sewing machine, covered in an old pillowcase, haunted the corner. Something needed to change. The grey winter was creeping over my studio, lulling me into couch potato hibernation.

As I went to stash the bonbons back in my kitchen, my eye paused over a small photograph tucked into a magnet sleeve on my refrigerator. Henrietta, a friend's cat, glared out behind wispy white eyebrows. I snatched it off the fridge, grabbed a few of my pens, rummaged in the drawer for my watercolors, and started my first pet portrait. GoodAfternoonan became my new year's resolution, and a few months later I was making many pet owners smile. When it's grey, you only need a little bit of color to brighten things back up.

Shop members

  • Katie

    Owner, Maker

    I am both a crafter and pet-lover, which is why I began GoodAfternoonan. I personally hand make each custom pet portrait, doodle and magnet, including all packaging, in my 107 year old house in St. Louis, MO.

  • Odessa

    Studio Rearranger

    Odessa is a pesky little old lady cat that bites at my feet and throws my papers off the table while I'm working. She owns and occupies a vintage leather chair in the corner and supervises most everything that happens in GoodAfternoonan.

  • Yanni

    Mascot

    If Yanni were in highschool, he would be considered the class clown. He is our studio's constant comic relief from the stress of running a home studio. He can often be found hiding behind a corner, preparing to pounce.

Production partners

  • Spoonflower

    NC, United States

    For any items such as pillows or softie ornaments, I get my original designs printed on fabric.
