I rarely buy polymer clay articles. Not because I don't find them totally amazing, it's just that... well, I come from that heritage of "doing everything yourself". My mother was a child of the Great Depression, and for those people, it was almost a part of their religion: Don't buy what you can make!
|Cat whistle by Joan Tayler: no, it's not to CALL your cat!|
Sometimes, you just GOTTA buy... like this little fella. I admit I was overcome by my maternal cat feelings. We have Kramer:
|Please Grammie, why can't I go out and chase the birds?|
And waiting to adopt Lucy later this week:
|I am She Who Must Be Obeyed...|
so get me out of this shelter!
So when I spotted the little sweetie over at Joan Tayler's blog this afternoon, I was hooked. Thankfully, Joan includes instructions for use, just in case I was hoping to use said whistle to have the kitties come a-runnin'...
I'm just bragging, here, 'cause I got the only cat whistle. I'm guessing Joan will be making more (pretty please?) There are lots of other cool whistles at her Etsy shop , and if you love rubber stamps, she sells her original design stamps (I'm getting the Dragon parts design) and other neat creations.
I placed my order... I got a Shipping Notification from Etsy, like maybe an HOUR later... The woman must be psychic, or live next door to a Post Office. Both handy if you're a designer and Etsy seller, I guess.
Now I'm eagerly awaiting, so I can start stamping and whistling, possibly at the same time. The cats will be SOOOO impressed...
