Handmade with Love in Oregon, USA

Welcome to my creative arts studio!

I live and work in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon with a couple of cats, a very patient man named Dave, and a roomful of really great art supplies. Gray skies are common around here, so my antidote is to fill a blank piece of paper with cheerful and happy paint-box colors to create whimsical illustrations for pet-lovers and tree-huggers.

During the last half of 2015 this shop was closed due to medical reasons, and now I am excited to be re-opening! I will be adding back my listings a few at a time until I'm back in full swing.

Susan Faye Pet Projects is a small independent business. I design all of the art, jewelry, handcrafts and craft supplies that are found here. My two feline studio assistants keep busy with product testing and other busy work.

Everything I create first starts out as a drawing and/or a watercolor painting, which is then transformed into a unique gift item or DIY craft supply.

Sometimes... I sell my original artwork. It might be a full-size watercolor painting, or an ACEO art card, which is a miniature painting the size of a baseball card.

Sometimes... I make a tiny print of my artwork then turn it into a piece of sparkling glass jewelry, or an art charm.

Sometimes... I have my artwork professionally printed onto cotton fabric by (a responsible, earth-friendly printer in Durham, N.C), then turn the fabric into snazzy catnip rats or quilt block squares for DIY crafts.

Sometimes... I get sidetracked by a new passion, such as learning the art of fused glass. Watch for my one-of-a-kind plates, treasure boxes, and "wishing stars"!

ALWAYS... I strive to create things that will put a smile on your face and bring a touch of whimsy into your day. Enjoy your stay in my Etsy shop and come back often to see what's new!

All the best,
Susan and Staff
