Can you have TOO many pockets?

So what’s new this week? I feel like it gets a little boring if I keep talking about the snow, so my default status is REALLY SNOWY AND COOPED UP until further notice.

I did go see my friend’s new kitten yesterday, so adorable! It took me an hour to drive home in the snow, but it was worth it! <3

In keeping with the theme of snow I am going snowshoeing today. I will enjoy this record-breaking Minnesota winter like my sanity depends on it!

Now, let’s talk about my favorite product (I’m allowed to have favorites right? really though, all my items are my favorites. It’s a very close 15-way tie)

The caticorn cosmetic bag!

First off, what’s not to love? I drew this adorable cat with wings, and added a unicorn horn, and voila. Set in a delicate purple hue and lavishly decorated with cupcakes, ribbons, and ribbons on top of cupcakes.

The fabric is so soft and high quality. The zipper zips like butter; no getting caught on this cosmetic bag!

And it’s lined with denim. DENIM POCKETS!

So the answer to my blog post question is no, you can never have too many pockets. This one has two inner pockets, which you can use to store literally anything. I use it to organize my jewelry, but you can also use it to store your cosmetics, because it is a cosmetics bag after all.

Quest for Cute launches Thursday 2/28 (and other updates :))

Hey Cuties!

Yes, my store finally launches next Thursday! More on that in a sec.

This week I had a friend visit from college, and I’ve turned yet another unsuspecting soul into a Terrace House fan

It may sound like I watch a lot of TV (that’s only half true :)) but have you seen Kitten Rescuers? It reminds me of the Great British Baking show with its peaceful tunes and feel-good theme. It reminds me a lot of my work as a foster cat mom, I’ve taken care of several kittens with ‘dodgy’ eyes. Their little squeaks make my heart melt every time!

This week I received the rest of my samples for my product launch next week Thursday! I am so ready for it, I have been working on it for the last three months! I hope you love it as much as I do, since it literally has everything I love: cats, unicorns, and cupcakes.

While I am waiting for next Thursday, I decided to do some drawing for fun and to get inspiration for my next collection. My next collection is still A SECRET, but I can tell you a little bit about my process 🙂

First, I make a list of everything I like (which includes everything you would hopefully like as well!) and I pick about 10-12 things that would go together in a theme.

I draw those 10-12 things, and start playing around with them together to create patterns. Not all of them work out, and I don’t use everything I draw. But it is hard to tell exactly what will work without putting all the pieces together! It’s like my personal puzzle. Once you find something that works, it is totally a light bulb moment. That’s what I’m looking for, and that’s how I know a pattern is a keeper.

See you next Thursday at 3PM CST!

XOXO,

Deidre
