Wow I have been Gone a long time but Back with Great News.

Seymour Here:

Hi, everyone!!!  I missed all of you but we have been so busy this past winter and most of the spring.  What have we been up to?  Lots.  And I’ll have to catch you up on my friends too.

Where to Start.

First, I should announce that ADKArtsBoutique is having a SALE!!  Yep.  We have a sale going on right now of all of our handcrafted handbags.  All you need to do is use the coupon code: SPRINGFLING24 for a 10% discount.  Here are just a few!!  www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique

 

Now the BIG NEWS!!  We have opened a third shop on Etsy.  It is called BirchwoodGallery.  It will be full of art, drawings, and photography.  Need something for that wall, here is the place to come to.  It is run by my sister Katilee so stop by and say hello.  www.etsy.com/shop/BirchwoodGallery

Here is a glimpse into her great shop and I’m the mascot there too. 🙂

My mom has started a whole new line in ADKArtsBoutique.  Guess who is the top model. ME!!  Yep, pet clothes and here is me doing my modeling job.  She just started this new section and plans on adding more handmade original designs soon.  She can make these for any pet you have from hamster to large dog.  This is Rico modeling one mom made for him.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique?ref=hdr&section_id=18513400

Here I am strutting my cat stuff.  Not bad if I say so myself.

Here is Moses.  He is a satisfied customer.  He got a poncho and a blanket.  Lucky Kitty.

My Dad is still busy with his Etsy Shop MountainAireVintage.  He is adding new items every day.  Vintage and Antiques are his favorite things next to me.  He especially loves beautiful old glassware.  Here are some of his newest items.  Stop by and say hi to Dad.  www.etsy.com/shop/MountainAireVintage

 

Now to tell you about my friends.  I’ll start with Spots.  He is a busy Kitty helping his mom in her Etsy shops.  www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry  and  www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit    When he is not doing that he is having fun with his playmates.  Here is my best friend from Singapore.  As you can see he is a great help, he keeps his mom’s fingers warm when she is working.  Oh, can’t let the keyboard get cold either.  We cats have to work very hard.

I have a doggie friend which you already met being dog model of the year.  His name is Rico and he lives in Pennsylvania.  He helps his mom too in her Etsy shop.   www.etsy.com/shop/MonicaWilgaDesigns

My mom has taken up bike riding.  She wants to be a biker chick but I just hate to tell her that it a motorcycle you need to ride.  Not a bicycle to be one.  Sometimes these humans get it all wrong.  Some even think horses are bicycles.  LOL  Good thing pets are here to take care of them.

That is the news from here.  I spend as much time as possible helping Mom.  I have my own place next to her when she is working.  I lay on top of a large tote and she thinks I’m sleeping. I’m really keeping an eye on her.  I have to watch these people all the time or they get into trouble.  A cat’s work is never done.   Goodbye for now.  I’ll be back Soon, Seymour

Seymour Here!!

Seymour Here –  Hi everyone!!  It’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to talk to you all.  You see Mom became a leader of a new great team on Etsy.  It’s called TeamVintageUSA.  It’s a team of vintage and handmade sellers.  It’s a fun team and hassle free.  The only requirement is that shops have to be located in the United States.  Buyers are very welcome to join also. This is our logo. :))

Image

The Captain of the team is Denise from oldandnew8 on Etsy.  She sells beautiful vintage items.  Here is a link to her shop and an item that she sells.   https://www.etsy.com/shop/oldandnew8

As for us here at ADKArtsBoutique  https://www.etsy.com/shop/ADKArtsBoutique  we have been very busy.  Mom has finished and listed a new crocheted baby blanket.  It is so lovely.  A giraffe sitting on a cloud and the cloud is very soft.  So now you have 2 to chose from. They would make a great baby shower, christmas, or birthday gift.  Great for babies and toddlers.  Both the blankets have a faux fur backing that is soft, warm, and comfy.     https://www.etsy.com/listing/191631316/crochet-baby-blanket-baby-afghan-with?ref=shop_home_active_14

We spent one weekend climbing in the Adirondacks.  We climbed Big and Little Crow mountain.  I shouldn’t say we, they left me at home. 😦  Mom, Dad, and Katilee went.  Ben was at work so I was all alone except for my best friend Ursa.  (Goldfish).  I couldn’t even get on the interent so I could talk to Spots in Singapore. ;(  But they came home with some beautiful photographs.  Mom posted one in the shop and here it is.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/190162875/adirondack-landscape-photography-art?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Image

Look at the beautiful view I missed.  But I’ll get to see it anytime I want now without having to climb a mountain.  That is good because  between you and I climbing mountains is not really something I would like.  But I do love the photos. :))  They really had a great day.  It was beautiful and sunny.  They met nice people on the summit with their dog.  Here is some photos of the fun that they had. 🙂

Image

That is my sister Katilee on the right isn’t she pretty. Especially that lovely smile but then I’m her cat brother.  She has been very busy too.  She went to outer space.  Well in her artwork that is where she went.  Here is her newest.  It’s a set of 2 differernt digital paintings. They would be so beautiful in a frame with a black matte.   https://www.etsy.com/listing/191645750/outer-space-art-digital-art-prints-the?ref=shop_home_feat_3

It makes me just want to catch the nearest starship and take a ride.  Maybe some of my friends could come with me.  Speaking of my friends I have just a bit of news.  I haven’t heard from Skylar (he’s probably in trouble again) and Lucy and Kitty’s Mom had been away so they are probably staying pretty close to her now that she’s home.

Spots is sad becasue he can’t use Bobo the Bunny as his live toy any more.  No more playing.  He didn’t know it but it upset Bobo more that she let on.  So their Mom has to keep them separated.

This is a sad Spots:

So now all Spots can do is help his Mom make beautiful things for her 2 shops.

and Rainbowknit   https://www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit

Spot’s Mom can knit beautifully.

I have just been enjoying myself helping my Mom and playing outside.  Being outside it the best. 🙂

Image

Image

So after all that hard work and playing I have to do what cats to best.  That is to take a cat nap. So until next time take care of those who love you unconditionally.  Your furry, feathered, and scaly friends.  Please adopt, rescue, and love.  –Seymour

PS Looking for the perfect present for your furry friends.  Just visit AcrossLeather on Etsy.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather  You just might find something for yourself too.  I’m also in their banner. 🙂  You’ll recongize me I’m the cat 🙂  Say “hi” to Lawrence for me.

Whats New!!

Seymour Here.  Hi Everyone.   Just thought it was time to check in and let you all know whats NEW! First my Mom and Dad went out last night to the theater (Proctor’s in Schenectady NY) and saw the musical Sister Act.  Not like the movie and all different music. But they liked it a even more so.  They had a great time, brought home hamburgers and nothing for me. What’s up with that???  Oh well.

There has been lots of snow and cold here this winter.  But we have a heat wave today highs in the 40’s.  Believe me that is warm compared to what we have had.  I can’t wait till it’s all gone and warm so I can go out and play on my leash.  Chase a few chipmunk, squirrels, rabbits, toads, and my favorite snakes.  My sister Kati hates it when I bring snakes to her but I just don’t know why.

At the Boutique we have been busy adding a new digital art painting and photograph.  I personally think that they are fantastic.  They are cat approved.  Of course I approve of everything that goes into the boutique.

First there is Kati’s new painting.  It is called Irish Darling.  This  digital art painting is darling and has a nice feeling to it.  An Irish maiden takes a walk through the countryside. Enjoying the mists in the hills she stops by a stone wall to have her portrait painted by a young artist. This is the Irish dream I see when I gaze upon this lovely painting. What is yours?                       https://www.etsy.com/listing/179849276/digital-art-painting-art-digital?ref=listing-shop-header-0

Image

Next is my brother Ben’s new photograph.  Its called Snow Train.  This is a wonderful photograph of an Amtrak Train heading north through a snowstorm. The wheels kick up the snow as the train speeds by on it’s way to Montreal. This photograph would be great in a den, man cave, office or studio. It’s a really great gift for any train enthusiast. So come with us and enjoy the magic of the rails.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/179678207/train-photograph-art-photography-8-12-x?ref=listing-shop-header-1

Image

My friends are doing fine.  Ursa swims around her bowl, shares her food and keeps me company when humans are gone.

Image

Spots is doing well.  He’s helping his Mom with her Etsy shops Rainbowknit  https://www.etsy.com/shop/RainbowKnit and Swamijewelry  https://www.etsy.com/shop/SwamiJewelry

Image

Bobo The Magnificent is getting spoiled as always.  Spots loves to terrorize him.

Image

Hope you all are having a great day.  Waiting for dinner time here.  Keep warm, well fed, and comfy.  Don’t for get to hug your human today.  They need special attention.  As always “Save A Life, Adopt”  or  “Save A Stray”  Everyone needs a home with lots of love.

The Mascot is Back To Work

The Mascot is Back To  Work

Seymour Here: Here I am back at work at ADKArtsBoutique
I had a great Christmas and New Year and am looking forward to talking with all of you in the up coming year. Just want to let you know we have a new photograph for sale here. It was taken by Patti (my Mom) . It’s an abstract of a cone flower. So take care I’ll be updating you on my friend Spots soon.

A little about ME by Seymour – Mascot of ADKArtsBoutique on Etsy

Hi again,  Yes it’s me Seymour.  I just thought that I would tell you a little about myself.  As you can see I’m a cat.  One important thing to remember though is a cat is not a dog.  So I am a CAT.

I work with my family at ADKArtsBoutique on Etsy.  I spend most of my time on the face book page. I have various jobs to do as you will see in the coming days.

First about my family.  Patti (she owns the shop) and from now on I’ll call her mom.  That is what she is to me.  She does all the curating and crafting. She even does some artwork.  She keeps us all in line. Joe he is our head of shipping.  ( At least he thinks so. Nothing leaves our shop without my approval)  I will from now on call him Dad.  He is our Adirondack Photographer.  He studied Photography at RIT in Rochester NY.  Next is Benjamin.  He is my big brother.  He does watercolors and photography for the shop.  He is our idea man. Next is Katilee.  She is our artist. She paints watercolors, does digital art, and draws.  So that is my family.

Now for me.  I am a big cat.  I weigh 20 pounds and I am not fat.  From my nose to my back feet I am 24 inches long (not including tail) I stand about 14 inches from floor to top of my back.  Of course I hold my head up higher.  I am 9 years old and part Russian Blue.

My family got me from the local animal shelter.  They came looking for a kitten.  They looked at me and my cell mate.  Then moved on.  I thought I like them especially the lady.  She love and knows cats.  She is a cat whisperer.  What to do???  She walked by again and I reached through the bars and grabbed the leg of her jeans.  I wouldn’t let go.  Next thing I knew she took me out of my cell and I was carried out of the cell block.  I got put in a box and when I came out there I was in a real house.  A young girl named Katilee  picked me up and hugged me.  I looked around and knew that these people love cats and I was home.  More important they loved ME.

So here I am helping them in The Boutique selling their wonderful art on Etsy.  Please stop by and check us out if you get a chance.  Who knows you just may find that perfect gift for someone special or for yourself.  Also if your ever in the mood to adopt a pet please consider your local animal shelter.  These kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs have no future there.  Also please do not give pets for Christmas it usually doesn’t turn out well.
