Hi guys!

I opened my etsy shop, Luna's Apawthecary, today. Handmade cat toys and blankets and other fun-ness, with 20% of the proceeds going to local rescues. The benefitting organization for June, July, & August is PAWS of Michigan, which is the organization we adopted Luna from.

I only have a few things up right now but there are a lot of awesome things on the way, so stay tuned!

Luna finds our fleece blankets perfectly sleep-on-able.

eta: I also have a blog, http://lunasapawthecary.wordpress.com, and a Facebook page that you can "like"- just search for Luna's Apawthecary! Thanks for the support, friends.

Hi friends, things are going so very nicely for me with my shop. Our very lovely Crystal of Naked Vegan Lunch fame is hosting a give-away for Luna's Apawthecary, and I'm rolling out a new line of cat beds today. I geeked out majorly at the fabric shop today and picked up some pirate and halloweeny skulls and spiderwebs fabric, plus these flowers:

Luna is still enjoying her position as Chief Toy Test Master.

I even made some business cards today! : )
Thanks as always for your love and support, PPK!

Hi friends! I've been so busy with the shop, I've been missing out on my PPK time. Thought I'd drop by and give you guys some updates.
Things are going very well! Sales have started picking up. I've been adding fun new things to the shop.

I wanted to tell you that I bought a pack of five toys the other day and gave one to my cat and left the rest on top of the fridge. An hour later, he had climbed up there and knocked the other four down. They are a big hit, even my grumpy old lady cat loves them! Thanks for making such a great product!

Yes, I did. I knew the name was familiar, it just took me a few days to figure out why. I met my first real life PPKer and didn't even know!

I donated a box of cat beds and cat toys to the Mid Michigan Cat Rescue and they sent me this awesome picture!

They are our featured rescue for Jan, Feb, & March. : ) We're donating 20% of our sales to them.
And we added some fun new designs to the shop. Cupcakes!!

I got my box today! I'm too excited to wait to post about how Zebedee likes his stuff - I just had to tell you straight away that I love everything and kinda wish I had a giant one for myself (it's so soft!). I'll update when Zebby has a chance to sleep on his bed and play with his toys. I hope he likes them as much as I do (or more)!

UPDATE - Zebby LOVES his bed. It's a testament to the bed that, when everyone said he'd be more interested in the box it came in, he's actually slept on/played with the bed several times and all but ignored the box. I'm super pleased with the bed and toys. I have nothing but good things to say about everything.

Dear friends, I'm closing up my Luna's Apawthecary etsy shop. The facebook page is still going strong and I'll still be volunteering and working with rescues, I just want to take my crafting in a different direction. :) If you need some fun new toys or sleeping spots for your kitty, stop by- I put everything on super discount. Cat beds are 1/2 off, just $15. Love you all!
