Friends, a few weeks ago we were prowling around on Etsy (as you do) when we stumbled across these really cute cat pins from Beth Spencer. We just knew that you all would love them as much as we do, and so we’re pleased to welcome Beth Spencer herself to our blog and to this edition of "Miss Cuddlywumps Converses" to tell us a little bit about herself and her work.

great cat since he got this dog person to start liking cats!
|This Love Me Cat Pin is one|
of the things that first caught
our eye. So cute!
Beth: Cats were sort of a mystery to me until I adopted my first one in 2013. I wanted a companion for my dog, Lisa. I applied to adopt a three-legged tabby kitten named Sean, and picked him up the next day. Since I've always had dogs, I was a bit nervous about what to expect.
Miss C: I’ll bet you’ve learned a lot from cats, right?
|Might as well admit it: if|
you're reading this blog, you can
probably relate to this shirt!
Miss C: Yes, lots of people would benefit from being around us cats, if only they’d give us a chance. We have so much to teach people! Let’s take a look at some of your art now. Tell us, where do you get your inspiration, and what kind of items do you create?
Beth: My own cats, as well as some whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at the animal shelters in town, are my main source of inspiration. Their mannerisms and personalities can easily turn into a funny greeting card or cartoon on my social media. I create pins, greeting cards, tote bags and magnets!

partial to the Calico-Oh yeah! and the Tortitude.
Beth: I opened my Etsy shop in June. It’s been magically fun and I’ve learned so much!
Miss C: What do you hope people will take away from your work, or how do you hope to touch people through your work?
Beth: I hope to make people laugh, find new perspectives and inspire them to do good things.
|Everybody needs a tote bag, and you might as well|
have a cute one, like this tote with a mother cat
pushing her kitten in a shopping cart.
