crazy for kitties!

I've been making TONS of kitties this past week and they've been so well-received. Thank you to everyone who has adopted one! This is Luxe Kitty and she is one special cat. I encased genuine 23k gold leaf and swirled it around creating quite the decadent lil kitty. I'm up to my eyeballs in kitty orders and I'm having such fun with new costumes and designs for them. So far I've done a pirate kitty, devil kitty, vampire kitty, nurse kitty, zombie kitty, hula kitty.. the list goes on and on! I'm so pleased that you all seem to like them just as much as I like creating them! Any ideas for kitties you'd like to see?

I had a wonderful birthday on Sunday. Steve and Kaia baked my family's special chocolate chocolate chip cake which turned out utterly divine. We went to my favourite cafe for breakfast, saw Terminator 4 and they also took me to my favourite Indian restaurant for dinner. I was thoroughly spoiled all day long! I received lots of lovely cards, flowers and gifts. My oh-so-loved friend, Laura, sent me a fantastic handmade pin and painting too! I love you, Laura! I'm so lucky to have you in my life.

My eBay auctions went well and I am going to try to have a few every couple of weeks or so. I better get cracking making more beads to list!

Today I've been running around all day so now I'm off to relax for a bit. I hope you're all having a great week!

hummingbird.. and kitties!

Hi guys! So after talking to the lovely and ever-supportive Kate, I decided to list some beads on eBay again. EEK! I haven't sold beads on eBay in aaaaaaaaaages (since they upped their fees for having a shop) and I'm a bit nervous as I've put the gorgeous Hummingbird Garden Focal (seen above) up on the block! All the listings start at just 99p. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please! Pop on over and have a look :)

My lovely friend, Laura, is organising a charity event for a little boy who desperately needs our help. As soon as she mentioned wanting artists to donate to the cause I was in! I asked her to let me know what kind of things she was after and she mentioned one of her friends likes cats. So I decided to make a cat focal. Then I just couldn't stop!! I made TWENTY cat focals in two days!! The above pic is from day 1. From left: Dune, Vixen, Summer, Melba and Princess Bast. Bottom row: Violet, Marina, Baby Rose, Jitterbug and Lilac. What do you think? Click on their names to be taken to their eBay auction or Etsy page!

This is day 2 of the great kitty focal project. Top from left: Luna, River, Skyleigh, Edgar and Azure. Bottom row: Fifi, Sandy, Leilani, Sweetpea and Capone. I went a bit more nutso on day 2 and made some pretty silly kitties. I had SO much fun! I have already received quite a few orders for kitties (Edgar the Zombie Kitty is proving quite popular!) and I'm open for more orders. Want one of these kitties? Want a custom kitty? How about a kitty that looks like your pet? Just email me at keiara@bykeiara.co.uk and I'll be happy to help :)

I hope you all have a great week! I'm off to make more kitty focals!! :)
