so i know it's a little early, but kate funk's had a lot of time off over christmas break so she went ahead and put together the next edition of her wholesale catalog. you can check it out on her website under the wholesale info link.
that's all. back to napping in my awesome new jungle gym.
hey peoples -
check out this super sweet jungle gym kate funk's fiance, jay, got for me for christmas. i love it! and despite the rude remarks from him that it wouldn't support my weight i will have you know i fit on it perfectly fine.
also i have big news! mister brennan sylvester - the designer of our awesome cat calendars and invitations has his own etsy shop set up finally! check it out here. he makes some pretty rad things. i even heard rumors of a cat sized fanny pack possibly in the future. amazing!
in case you were not aware, miss kate funk does carry another line of cards that don't use photos of myself. (i'm not sure why, though). they're of photos she's taken with her sx-70 Polaroid camera. she carries boxed sets of these as well that up until now came in these neat kraft colored boxes that had image transfers on them and were wrapped in ribbon. as much as she loves these boxes and would like to continue carrying them, she had to make the switch this week to a new format. they now come in the same box type that all of MY cards already come in.
so she wants me to explain to everyone why this has happened.
it seems kate is allergic to a huge list of items (although strangely enough not to cats) and the chemicals she used to transfer the images on these boxes has always bothered her. originally it wasn't such a huge deal since she would only make one or two, but now that it's gotten to be more it's become a problem. and with it being winter it's even worse because she can't take them outside to work on. so she wanted me to show everyone what the new versions look like.
the next post better go back to being about me.
so miss kate funk just finished putting up the half off sale calendars on her etsy site. they're mostly like the 2010 World's Most Super-Amazing 100% Awesome Cat Calendar, but with some awesome binding errors from our printers. they gave us a huge amount of these little beauties and when we tried to return them for some good copies, they just gave us more! so we're trying to recover the cost we had to pay for them by offering everyone the option of a half off calendar as long as you're ok with a few stapling errors. (especially since we only have 3 good calendars left for sale). you can read all about them here.
so miss kate funk returned late sunday night from the Holiday Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago and told me all about the amazing-ness i missed. she shared her booth this year with the awesome mister brennan sylvester who brought along his new, amazing duct tape bags. watch for his etsy site which should be going up soon! you can see photos of them above as well as a photo of their booth. it looks so super cramped in there with so many great artists selling their things. kate came back with some cool greeting cards she bought which you can see above, too. they are made by (from left to right):
McBitterson's Happy Birthday Jesus card
Johnny Cash card by A Favorite Design
an awesome Snowman Christmas card by the Busy Beaver Button Co.
she also told me about how at every craft fair she goes to everyone likes to tell her the names of their cats that look exactly like me, and this time she heard the best one yet: Mr. Meowminson. finally another cat with an awesome, ridiculous name like myself!
lastly, sales were so amazing at the fair that she only has 5 of the 2010 World's Most Super-Amazing 100% Awesome Cat Calendar left! so if you want a copy - i'd hurry. all 5 are up on her etsy site. there are still some bad mistake calendars left, too. (the printers gave us a whole lot of badly assembled calendars. we won't be printing with them again next year). those will be up on etsy soon, too, for half price. but they aren't quite so amazing. more like 80% awesome.
