ComicCon Thanks and Catmas Fair

This past weekend DRC was at the Ottawa ComicCon Holiday Edition as a vendor. Thank you too everyone who stopped by the booth! There are going to be plenty of happy fuzzbutts and people this holiday season. If anyone would like to share pictures with me of their happy pawstomers feel free to email them to me at del.roba.creations@gmail.com

Next up for DRC is the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue 3rd Annual Catmas Craft Fair. There will be plenty of awesome local vendors there and all the money raised goes towards helping kitties!

Mission Pawsible – Beat the Heat Online Auction

Until July 16, 2017 Mission Pawsible is having an online auction! The proceeds of the auction go to help out two wonderful animal rescues in Ottawa, ON; The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue and Furry Tales Rescue.

A word of why the rescues need help from the Mission Pawsible people;

‘Between the two rescues, there are over 200 cats in care with daily requests to take in more cats. The rescues cannot take in cats and help them find their forever homes without the funds to make sure the cats have been vet checked, vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchiped. Adoption fees do not cover associated medical costs so fundraisers like this one help to bridge the gap.

Please help us make this auction a successful one so that more cats can be saved and find their forever homes!’

The auction is not just for cat lovers! Many of the items were donated by restaurants, jewelry makers, services, and the list goes on.

Bearly Work Creations and I donated a suPURRvisor basket to the auction.

The suPURRvisor basket is a  wicker basket with a pillow and a wooden sign for the front that says suPURRvisior that a small to medium sized cat can fit in.

In the basket is a pillow, a hand hooked wool rug called Fat Cat from Bearly Work Creations  and a number of crocheted things by me; a placemat, a Santa Paws stocking, and a Jingle Jangle toy.

Spring has sprung (sort of) here in Ottawa and it’s time to come out of hibernation for a craft show!

Join me and a host of other awesome local vendors at Wizard Werks Spring Fling Craft Show!

On Sunday April 9, from 3-7pm the wizards will be peddling their creations at The House of Targ on Bank Street.  Enjoy some pinball and perogies while you shop!

I’ll have some new pet goodies with me like the Squeaker Tie Fighter Dog Toy I just created.

Space Explorer Cat Discovers Alien Life

Today I was tagged in a post on Instagram about Etsy finds. Turns out it was a happy pawstomer and his Alien Facehugger from the DRC Workshop.

Here’s an excerpt from the space adventurers log at sashimigradephotos ;

Log journal entry 1 [dictated]: I’ve been sent on an exploratory mission to Mars, the surface seems to be covered in white sheets. There’s a friendly pink lifeform that smells curiously of cat nip, let me get closer.
journal entry 2 [dictated]: Huge mistake, please send for help!

To see the accompanying pictures check out the post on Instagram!

Update and New Stuff

Been awhile since the site has been updated.

I added some new stuff which is also available on Etsy. Check out our Kool Kerchiefs for starters!

 

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the products I’m working on that will soon be available.  With help from model Tray of course. 😉

Now that the Ottawa Pet Expo is over it’s time to concentrate on the home front. Lots of new stuff will be making an appearance in our Etsy shop and here on our site in the next little while. Some of it was available at the Expo and some of it is brand new! Until it’s all up keep an eye on our Facebook page since much of it is available there first.

Big News From the DRC Workshop

As many of you know I’ve been mentioning some big things in store for Del Roba Creations. Today one of them got finalized. DRC will be at the Ottawa Pet Expo this year as a vendor!

Now I know some of you may be thinking “Why is this big news? It’s just another convention.”

Yes it is but, besides being the largest one I’ve done, the Pet Expo has added a new area this year that in my own small way I helped it come about. The Pet Crafter Marketplace!

DRC Is Foster Kitten Approved!

While at the PunkOttawa Fleamarket this weekend I met a FB friend met through love of helping out rescues. She stopped by the table and ended up buying a Jingle Jangle crocheted cat toy for the kittens she is currently fostering.  I think the pictures and the quotes from a message received from her says it all.

So nice to finally meet you at the flea market! Wanted to send a few pictures of the fosters playing with the cat toy I got from you…they LOVE it!!!

That toy will probably be in every picture I take of them from now on, they are dragging it everywhere with them haha
