Easter Cat Hats & Other Notes

It’s been a busy day in the Cat Hat Studio! I managed to complete four cat hats– two of which I feel like I’ve been working on forever. I now have some fabulous new Easter Cat hats to share in the Notso Kitty Shop as well as a Christmas Cat fascinator that was long overdue.

Easter Cat Hats

I have Easter inspiration to thank for the motivation to make the following three cat hats. I started with something old— I wanted to improve upon the Easter Egg fascinator I made last year. I decided to class it up a bit— instead of plastic eggs on this year’s model I went with styrofoam glitter eggs. Fluff was impressed by the results!

For the next hat, I kept going with the Easter egg inspiration— this time with a chick hatching out of it! Fluff liked this one as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Though Fluff was an excellent model, I had to let Notso have a turn with this next cat hat. This one I used the Easter Bunny himself as the inspiration. I think it came out pretty fabulously! The Easter Bunny cat hat is sure to be a hit in the Notso Kitty shop!

Winter Wonderland

Though it may be late in March, my neighborhood near Boston, MA is still covered with snow! I’ve been getting a little depressed about the cold lately— I have skied all I want to ski this year and I feel it’s time for the snow to go! I did find a few helpful signs that Winter is on it’s way out today though….. First, Fluff makes a break for it whenever I open up the front door— something he does not do in the dead of winter.

The second hopeful sign that I saw was one of my helleborus had managed to poke it’s way up through the snow and almost start to bloom! Yeay! Spring has almost officially sprung! It won’t be too long before we’re all thawed out again. I can’t wait!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Hello all! I’ve been busy at work in my cat hat studio today, but just had to stop for a quick post. Notso & Fluffy wish everyone a Happy St Patrick’s Day! Here are some of their favorite past Irish-inspired looks to get you into the spirit:

Kitty Update: The Copy Cat Film Festival & A New Kitty Look

Hi y’all! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted so I figure I’m due for an update. Lately my real job has been super busy so my creative life has taken a small breather— never fear though— I could feel the urge to be creative coming back with a vengeance soon enough! I have had a few updates that I’d like to share ย in the meantime though: First, Notso was featured in the slide show and promotional materials for the Somerville Copy Cat Film Festival a few weeks ago. Secondly, I have posted a new kitty look in the Notso Kitty Shop for your cat’s amusement!

Copy Cat Film Festival

Of course I jumped at the opportunity to enter Notso’s pictures into the slideshow of the Copy Cat Film Festivalย hosted by the Somerville Arts Council on February 17th! If you missed out on the festival and want to have an idea of what it was like, the Boston Globe has a pretty nice slideshow of the event. I was delighted to find out that Notso’s Elton John costume photo was used in the Boston Phoenix as part of the promotion for the festival!

I went to the film festival and was delighted to see that they used two pictures of Notso (the above Elton John and his Solar system hat) in the slide show. It was wonderful to see him up on the big screen in front of hundreds of other cat lovers ๐Ÿ™‚

Introducing Kitty Poindexter

It’s been a slow month for cat hats…. I haven’t even gotten to the Saint Patrick’s Day looks I was meaning to create yet! Oh well, so it goes sometimes! In the meantime, I did post some new kitty nerd glasses in the shop in a variety of colors. Now my kitties can match their nerdy owner ๐Ÿ™‚
