About

Inspirations With a Flair !

I have always had a love of creating art thru various mediums whether it be acrylics, watercolor, ceramics, beaded Jewelry -- or --- my absolute favorite -- beautiful fabrics for Interior Design. SaSSy CaT Creations was my brainstorm a few years ago after a trip to Europe where I came across some absolutely gorgeous fabrics, the likes of which I had never seen in the States. As we traveled around I collected fabrics and drew inspiration from the look and feel of the cities and countryside we visited.

Today, instead of lugging the fabric back from Europe, I get regular shipments from my French, English, and Austrian sources; the suppliers of the authentic European fabrics I use in my pillow designs and construction.

The name SaSSy CaT was inspired by my wonderful Siamese kitty who is quite the “sassy cat” - a nickname my husband tagged on to this high spirited feline. Plus… she is my constant companion in my studio where all the pillow creativity takes place. So, naturally, my adorable “sassy cat” became the logo for my store when I joined Etsy. Thus began the start of creating pillows in the French and English Country Cottage style with a touch of whimsy... and just that little bit of flair !

In the beginning of my venture into the world of Etsy, I also made quite a few pillows and children’s quilts from Vintage Chenille. This fabric is such a lovely textile to work with and produces the most interesting, beautiful creations when different patterns of this softly colored, luscious material are combined. While I love Vintage Chenille, I now focus my pillow creating energy on designing with European fabrics.

Having an Etsy store has lead to some exciting opportunities. After viewing my Vintage Chenille designs on Etsy, a Better Homes & Gardens photographer once contacted me about my Vintage Chenille pillow and quilt creations. This led to SaSSy CaT having the distinction of being featured on the cover, and on an inside section, of Better Homes & Gardens - 100 Decoration Ideas. On display in this Summer 2009 publication were my Vintage Chenille pillows and quilts, featured in the section titled 100 Decorating Ideas Under $100. Needless to say, it was quite a thrill to see my creations in a magazine!

Prior to my adventures in Etsy, I worked in a demanding corporate environment for far too long. Several years ago, after chilling out on a two week trip to the Cook Islands with my husband, I decided that my time could be more sanely spent pursuing my love for creative design. So, with much support from my wonderful husband to pursue my dream…. I left my position and the corporate world behind.

And… the rest is Etsy history! One of the best decisions I ever made was to start SaSSy CaT and join Etsy - I love being in my studio every day developing new creations and working with the wonderful Etsy customers who purchase my pillows!
