Great seller! Very friendly and sends me extra surprises! The eye soother is so cute and works great, very relaxing! The scent is also calming.

The lavender kittens are so cute! A creative idea, beautifully designed and constructed. And the lavender scent an added bonus. Thank you!

About

the cats are sleeping...but will wake up soon to visit you....

I studied at Ontario College of Art & Design, and worked as a library artist in Toronto , becoming Dept. Head for the central library and 20 branches.

On Saturdays I welcomed the neighborhood kids to my studio for free art lessons, which led to my making stuffed animal "rewards " for them, for learning respectful care of the brushes and equipment. Local shops and galleries liked these designs as well, and with added help sewing , became a nation-wide artisan business. I named it"The Frog and Box Toy Company" selling 15 styles of my animal designs wholesale to handmade shops. This name changed to Wild Design and as the years went on. Along with other employees, I hired 6 Vietnamese "Boat People" ~ a great experience to be part of world history.

I have done commissioned design/make for Viewmaster, Le Chateau and Macmillan Publishing. A fun contract was to make and install huge animal figures in a permanent Noah's Ark for Toronto Public Libraries.

Many years later, I now work alone, and specialize in cat designs. I live in a quiet small town along the World Heritage Rideau Canal, and do all my own work from design to making to shipping and accounts.
I wholesale regularly to 10 or so fine craft galleries/shops under the name "Wild Design" ~ this keeps me extremely busy, so busy that I am just now finally stocking my Etsy shop ! Please visit my cats at
