Crafters for Critters greeting cards are very popular, especially our cute cat and dog themed creations.  Today some of the crafters spent the afternoon at Kari's putting together some cards she had designed.  We made little 3" x 3" gift cards and some larger greeting cards as well.  Andreanne dropped by with a supply of little gift cards that she had created.  The little gift cards will be available (for a small donation to the shelter) on Feb 13th at the Kingston Humane Society's cat adoption booth at the Cataraqui Town Centre.  Just in time for Valentine's Day, these little cards pair nicely with the carnations which will also be offered by the shelter for a small donation.  Unfortunately our other crafts will not be available for sale at this event, but look for our items at the shelter and at the Cat Show at the end of the month.

Here are pictures of the little cards designed and made by Andreanne:

More photos will be posted soon!

Love is in the air

Here are photos of some of the  Valentine's Day and Love - themed crafts we've been working on:

 Our greeting cards are always popular.

We've been making more kitty tents.  Each tent requires about 6 hours of work. 
 Valentine themed pet bandanas.  The small size will fit a large demonstrated by Angus below.
They have velcro closures and are reversible.

 Our cat toys sell well... we are working on some new ideas.
We've started making fancy dog collars.  Here is an adjustable martingale style.

We have some lovely pillows and dog mats.  Perfect on the sofa or floor.

Cosy fleece pet mats in fun Valentine prints.

  You can sponsor a bed for a shelter cat for only $5.00 or provide a toy for only $2.50.

One of our crafters, Linda, loves  Dalmations and has several of her own.  She helps with Dalmation rescues as well as supports the Kingston Humane Society and Crafters for Critters.  She's famous among us for her knitted catnip mice.  Here's a stunning pic from her photo album of Dalmations:
