I just went through the few remaining physical items I had marked as free and put them in a bag to be donated tomorrow, found a few other items I don’t want to sit on any longer, made sure my etsy listings matched up with what’s still available… and I deleted almost 60 items from my shop. Some were sold out so they don’t really count, but a lot just weren’t up to the current level of perfection or were perfectly made, but just not moving.
There’s going to be some happy thrift store shoppers though! A few of my friends will be receiving gifts as well so my loss is several people’s gain.
I’m really excited to be clearing out some product, even if its just donating it, because it means I’ll have that much more space to organize and store the things I love! There’s still a few tough decisions to make (books I loved as I child, I mean you!) but I think I’m going to be a lot happier by tomorrow afternoon.
And right now if you browse my shop, there’s quite a few items on sale right now, tons of great patterns, and as always, there’s coupon code LSG for those who want to save another 10% off their purchase. I might even stick a few more items on sale this evening… hmmm… 🙂
Hi, and welcome to Kittyloaf Designs! This page is where I get to talk about myself a little, so get ready!
I’ve always been doing crafts for as long as I can remember. As a young child, I had the most fun in my community’s 4-H club’s Arts & Crafts group. We did a lot of painting – ceramics, wood, watercolor, a little of everything. I really enjoyed it.
When I was a little older we build looms for bead weaving. This got me interested in jewelry, even though I never really used the loom. I discovered Fire Mountain Gems and tried out a lot of jewelry-related things over the next couple decades.
I went to school, studying graphic design, and for a while paid my bills doing logo designs. I also started creating my own brick – stitch earring patterns which I eventually began offering up for sale.
Along the way, I learned to sew, knit, crochet, and cross stitch. I learned how to work with polymer clay, and 2 part resin. I took up coloring and then discovered the joy of houseplants.
I currently live with my mom while I’m hoping to school again, this time to get my MLT, and I have an aquarium, two large, sheddy dogs, and four cats. Because of my disability, I’m lucky enough to have the Department of Rehabilitation paying 98% of my school expenses, which is what makes going back possible when most of my income is from SSI. When you purchase something from me, you let me eat a better diet, pay off debt faster, and in general, live a better life.
I’m located in Lancaster, CA.
Kittyloaf Designs is so named in memory of my cat Lucky. Though I only had him for about three years, he made a very lasting impression on me and is greatly missed. You can read more about Lucky here.
I can be reached via email or phone, though I prefer email contact. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is (661) 794-8641. I do not always have cell signal at home so your call may go straight to voicemail. Please leave a message. Alternately, you can use the form below to email me. I will respond as quickly as possible.
If you’re asking for a cost estimate for a project, please be as specific as possible. I can’t give you an accurate response if I don’t know what you need done. 😉 If you’re not sure what type of project you have, just be as descriptive as possible and explain it as well as you can to me and I will ask if I have further questions before giving you an estimate.
