Do you have someone you can tell your secrets too?

Secret Keepers...shhhh, they won't tell.

The elusive Secret Keeper - Have you ever seen one? Have you ever heard the tale? My boyfriend says they look like melted marshmallows or ghosts, I tend to agree. This would be a great addition to your Halloween or Fall decorations!

The Legend of the Secret Keeper :

Once upon a time far away there lived a very untrustworthy King. The King had grand thoughts all day long and had no one to tell these wondrous thoughts to. Even though he didn't trust anyone he did have an army of loyal knights.
One day he called upon his knights to go on a quest for him. The King had heard that all over his lands people had hidden "Secret Keepers". The King was not sure what a secret keeper was, only that he needed to possess them all.
His knights returned with many secret keepers whom he told all his grand ideas and secrets to and they lived with him all the days of his life.

These are the Secret Keepers that the legend speaks of and I can not tell you how I came to own them. I have told the Secret Keepers, but they aren't telling either.

A little something from my dark side...(2010)

my skin hangs a little crooked on my bones these days
the unnatural touch of my insides quells the distraught foreboding
normalcy is a fantasy
bred among us
steeped and slathered
into our willing souls
from birth
don't believe the lies
off kilter is king-it reigns; it has the right to our bodies

take mine; i need it no longer
drape yourself in the fallacy, falsehood
the body you want I no longer desire
I see a new face daily I want to possess, flashes from a camera-airbrushed tendencies
dangling before our eyes, allude us into the realm of non-believers
cast us before it, placing it into our cupped hands-willing demons

- Michaela DeVore

Drain my Charisma (2009)

can you see beyond your own pain
to watch my sidewalk crack

slippery slivers of solitude cry out to you
following your trace of dusty foot trails

blindness has a way of overcasting all
shadows only glimmer in the tear-filled eyelids of mine

smiles are wild moments of delirium
shared with the massive hordes of careless [enemy] faces

drain my charisma and gloat with it resting on your mighty shoulders
eat my soul, dine for it might be your last hearty meal

i am done here
i am done here; there must be a better place

i understand the mountain man
allow me to reside in your hefty beard - bear man
i need to hide from it all
i no longer want what doesn't want me

i am tired of trying
i will no longer lie to myself
for i am my only confidant
rest now
teeth are no longer a necessity; in a place where no one smiles

- Michaela DeVore

So I think of Poe (2010)

bird of feather
soul of flight
take me to the long dark night

toss my ashes
chew my bones
use my hair to make your homes

even in death
I won't be far
to hear the sound
from a remote star

wake me again
once the time is right
until then
I dwell with night

- Michaela DeVore

I am your honesty (2009)

         heart murmur's flutter

through my protective boney cage
and into the desolate air


take it in
believe it
make it fact
          drawn as deep as blood on paper

the meaning stands as clear
as antique
as cherished
as a hundred year-old torn note
from a forgotten past
from aged hands

dead and gone

this phantom, now made of dust
holds no deeper secret than I
for I stand the test of time as well

Your honesty
Your truth
I will be your rectifying soul
Making the wrong again right
believe in me
for if not how can I believe in myself

I was made for this
I am here
take what I have to offer
for it is yours

my purpose is you
you are my task
worth all that lay inside me
that most have never see
nor dare to touch
or want to know
                gaze upon it

with willing graces
and divine intervention
I lay it before you to

          I trust you

with what is mine

Just Believe it and it can happen.

Just Believe Bears

 My newest line of Plush Animals, Bears.  These little guys range from 91/2-12 inches tall. 50% of the proceed of EVERY sale of Just Believe Bears will go directly to Animals Asia.

After reading a few articles - I was enraged at the prolonged mistreatment of animals that I saw and read about on their website.  I couldn't believe at this day and age we are still finding horrific stories of prolonged torture, cruelty and harmful acts to innocent animals just to satisfy the urges of the human race.  With the knowledge that I gathered I decided - I HAVE TO ACT.  What can I do?  From this thought Just Believe Bears were born.  Hopefully I will be able to create a multitude of these wonderful and inspiring guys!

Would you like to donate directly to their cause?

More Mustache Kitties come into the fold

Rutheford - Gavin - Biliby - Rexton and Hector
Rutheford and Gavin have already been lucky enough to find their forever homes but the others are still on their search!!  Maybe you know someone that would like to adopt one?

I love the fact that their larger eye almost looks like a monocle - it adds to their studious and masculine design, even if they come in pink ;)

Rexton's mustache almost looks like lips...but that is ok isn't it?  

More mustache kitties coming soon??  Maybe >^.^<

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

I just love his 'stache :)

Kittie Whiskers Family Photo

Dedication Blog : For my friend across the Sea

I met this talented lady as I have met many new people on the lovely website Etsy!

This blog is dedicated to my friend Xamantha

Truly a sweet lady, we hit it off right away!  I was drawn to her through her love of cats for as you all know own my heart as well!  Her art is also influenced by her love for these four legged special creatures that she shares her home with!  She currently has been sweet enough to make renditions of my kitties through her unique, ooak, amigurumi crochet style!

Gilligan - Boscoe - Andee

One more (Lucie) and my kitty set will be complete! >^.^<

Xamantha's Items  are wonderfully made and even sweeter in person!

Special items she is currently featuring for Easter/Spring

She also makes kitty catnip toys!  She was kind enough to send me a bonus one when I ordered a kitty from her.  The cats absolutely loved it!!  They didn't want to share, so I would recommend that if you order these from her that you get enough for each of your kitties :)
The style she is currently featuring on her Etsy is a Lucky Clover:

Check out her shop for a other selections like these:

Bruno, Ivan and Ludvig

Also find a nice selection of KITTY BOOKMARKS, and CROCHET HATS!

Xam - thanks for being a great friend, for the wonderful convos we've had.  You are a special person!

Such good people are to be found on Etsy

I am taking some time today to give some BLOG LOVE to two very special ladies on ESTY

I met this first lady Tracy, during a BNR on Etsy.  She was kind enough to purchase some of my Kittie Whiskers for herself, her boys and her Mom >^.^<

Through these purchases her and I have had many convos, learned about each others lives, shared stories, and have become friends!  Tracy is a wonderful lady and mother of two great boys.  She is also a busy mom with a wonderful shop on Etsy called Denmark55033


 Tracy specializes in handmade bracelets and homemade soaps.  Her shop is beautiful, colorful and looks as though it would smell splendidly!! 

She is currently running a Japan Relief Fund on her Etsy Shop
 which proves she is not only a talented artist but a sweet, kind lady.  Check out her Japan Relief Fund Items here: Japan Relief

Check out her facebook here:

 Tracy was nice enough recently to have some kitty toys, made and sent to me from another super Etsian Crafty Cat Lady

These toys are wonderful!  The organic catnip spelled so nice to my kitty clan of four that they had a hard time sharing!   She was sweet enough to even include a bonus cat toy :)
The toys are made very well and beautifully colored also!

 Here is a little I learned about her on her about me on Etsy 
"I got my first cat 10 years ago. Before that, I had no idea how incredibly loving and intuitive cats could be. Making toys that cats love is my way of "giving back" all the love and support my cats have given me. I take this stuff pretty seriously. All the toys I make are my own design and are made from quality ingredients and organic catnip that is grown in my garden. I have a panel of "test cats" (made up of not just my own cats, who can be a bit jaded) to try out new designs for any potential issues before I make that design available for purchase"

Don't these two ladies just sound wonderful!  
Fellow cat lovers unite!

Please check out these two fantastic ladies and give them some love on Etsy today!!

So today I am off to BGSU (Bowling Green State University) to take my niece back to college.
Home of the Falcons!  Freda and Fred to be exact.
I love this trip with the family.  It's usually Carlie, Christy (my Sister and Carlie's Mom) and Momma :)
As usual where ever we go we have an adventure!  On top of all that we will be shopping for a few hours @ the Toledo Mall!  It's wonderful there, so many shops to choose from and they have Chick-Fil-A.  If you you've never had it, you have to try it.  They have the best chicken I have ever tasted in a fast food restaurant!!

  Yes in our family
we are all about the food!  We map out our meals almost as closely as we map out our drive!!

On that note time to finish the last of the packing up, hop in the shower and then hit the road!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

New babies - Ready for Adoption

May I introduce Charlie and Grisham!!
Born Saturday, March 5th
Charlie is 11 1/2 inches of soft, tan, textured fleece!       

Grisham is 10 inches of soft, variegated gray, textured fleece

Both of these boys are ready for a great home, how about yours??


My Little Poo

My lil' not so little Kitty, Andee

I love this guy right here and I am missing him something awful.  I had to take him to the vet this morning and they decided that they should keep him overnight.  I won't get into the gory details of what is wrong with him but I will add a link for anyone that might want to know about his condition.  It is called MEGACOLON

I want to take the time to thank my boyfriend, family, friends that are close and ones from around the world and on Etsy for taking the time to think of me and my baby.  You all are just so wonderful for showing your concern in this time when I have felt very weak.  

Andee is just so sweet and I don't know what I would do if I lost him at such a young age.  So thank you, your prayers and thoughts are so appreciated.

Also, last but definitely not least...there is a lady named Donna who read in a BNR the story about what was going on with Andee today. Then out of the kindness of her heart purchased two of my kitties.  She attached a note to say "To help with your vet bills!"

I know that Ruby and Lottie will both have good homes!! This makes me happy :) So to help promote a kind and sweet lady, who is also a fellow artist on Etsy...here is a link to her shop, please check her out:


Some of Donna's items
featuring kitties

Thanks again Donna and Happy Sales to you!

Conviction: My foggy tune

receive me in my entirety
menu; desires
dig it or allow it to lay upright - whatever
take it in

I speak with purpose - though it may be mine own
have faith in my ability to know the truths I see
intuition is golden; unlike an egg
I birth it still
an allowing of my presence
in my solitude it shadows my making
it harbors my intent
misshapen as ever but real
validate me, my home of homes
the authenticity is concrete
stand and allow
give into it's will

beheld by the beholden stillness
of this fractured character

Meeka (2009)

I am a new seller on Etsy and compared to my Mom or Sisters,I am also fairly new to my craft.  I have only been making hand made plushies for a few years now.  I know that they are something I love and adore but sometimes when it comes to others buying my plushies I am still a little concerned that they might not be as well received.  So when I get some good feedback it really makes me smile, in a truly genuine way!!

I got this feedback today about Walter

"Walter is here! He is adorable, and you are right sooo soft. I know my Granddaughter will love him. For now he is lounging on the bed in the guest bedroom. He was tired after his travels. :) Thank you again. Very cute, and well made."
This absolutely made my day, mostly because I hope that Walter makes her day!!
