I decided to use the name CatsEatDogs in 2001 after rejecting Mango Grace (which I quite like).  Alas, I don’t know where the name came from apart from the initials C.E.D. were my initials at the time.

Here is what I wrote in my notebook on September 7th 2001

 “Jewelry range called Cats Eat Dogs.  Labels – a cartoon cat eating a dog.  The cat being big with a huge mouth and the dog running in”

Blimey, I am not sure of the lovely image that conjours up…. but wait, there are sketches…I quite like where the last one is going actually.  Maybe I should have another go at that one.

Look what else I found in my old sketchbook/scrapbook.  Looks like a pom pom blanket.  Be still my pom pom loving heart!


Do you keep a notebook for ideas/sketches/cuttings?  I still do and although I like magazines on the iPad, I really like a magazine made from paper I can cut up and stick in my book.  I love that I have lots of filled up fat sketchbooks bursting with ideas for food, clothes, house stuff and just pictures I like.  There are always pressed leaves and flowers in them too!

Now I keep a big book for cutting and sticking and a smaller notebook for sketches and writing down ideas.  See how organised I am.  I especially like that I can mess about with new ideas like making stamps, and the kids always have somewhere to draw!

I am still CatsEatDogs and I like the name (although sadly the original logo never made it).  I have been thinking of a re-name. Should I stick to the original crazy CatsEatDogs or go for a change?

There will be alot to change if I do and I will loose some folks along the way I would imagine, some will not follow a change and some may explode from utter confusion.   I may well be among the exploders…

In the meantime, look what is new at CatsEatDogs.

I am putting these new designs into my Etsy shop very soon!  If you can’t wait to own one, just give me a shout and I can give you all of the details.

  1. Very interesting. I always did wonder the story behind your blog name. It’s quirky and fun. I like your sketches too I need to do that more.
