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.

Galactic Empire Beware

Puppers have joined the Rebellion and are wrecking havoc on the fleet!

I just received a video of a dog named Chewbarka who was just given the first Squeaky Tie Fighter Toy I made. I think the test run went well!

Local Craft Wizards Celebrate Spring

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.

New Panel for DRC at Ottawa Comiccon 2017

It’s that time of year again. Time to get ready for the upcoming convention season.

For the past three years I’ve had the pleasure of talking at both Ottawa and Montreal Comiccon about the work of a childhood hero, Jim Henson. In the past my panels have been about The Dark Crystal, and building Skeksis costumes from said movie.

This year I’m trading in one childhood hero for another. I will not be speaking on anything Henson related. Instead I’ll be doing a panel called

Inside the Tickle Trunk: Mr Dressup.

That’s right. I’m talking about Canadian childhood icon, and the reason so many of us love costumes… the one… the only…. Mr Dressup!!!!!

I’ll share more details when they come available.

Convertible Pet Bed Bonanza!

Today I got the Convertible Pet Beds with Pockets added to both this website and the Etsy shop.

I have a number of pre-made beds but I also take commissions for custom beds. Hopefully all the furry companions who receive these beds will like them as much as Malcolm and his sister do! Their parents had me make a custom flannel Star Wars bed.

They both fit... sort of.

They both fit… sort of.

Throwback Thursday at the DRC Workshop

I decided to do a DRC Throwback Thursday.  We’re going back to about a year and a half ago when I was commissioned  to make a couple pet collars with matching bowties.  I was lucky enough to have their mom send pics! Remember these two cutie pies?

Kittens In Hats!

I was asked to make some hats for a couple of kittens. They were by far the smallest hats for cats I’ve ever made. Their mom just sent me some pictures. So like always I had to share the cuteness!

Meet Marshall and Mitchell!

DRC @ Rideau High Craft Fair This Sunday

This Sunday, December 11, 2016 Rideau High School is hosting a craft fair to raise funds for the school’s concert band to attend the Music Festival in Montreal next year. As well as funds for their food cupboard.

Del Roba Creations will be in attendance at this event. On top of the usual stuff, I have some new stuff designed for Christmas and gift giving, and I’ll have holiday baking for sale. There will be cookies, and four different flavors of cookie dough truffles.

The sale was featured in the Ottawa Community News and got a pretty good writeup.

It’s free admission and parking so come on down and take a peek at numerous local artisans.
