What’s Hot?


Normally on my What’s Hot post, I share a hot trend in the bookstore, but today, I’m going to share something I want in the bookstore.

The work of Jennifer Cooke, from Cat’s In the Bag Design.


This lovely lady has been creating an original painting EVERYDAY since 1/1/12. Yes, that’s 3 years and 7 days!

I can hardly believe it, they are all so cute too!

You can find out more about Jennifer and her work at Cat’s in the Bag.

But she’s not just a genius artist. She’s also a very generous human being. She is currently donating 50% of the proceeds of her sales to two worthy organizations:

FrogskinU: provides cash and financial management education for children

The Canadian Mental Health Association.

To help Jennifer in her quest, you can visit RedBubble and purchase one of her beautiful and functional items.


This is the darling tote bag I purchased to hold all my needle felting supplies.

I hope you enjoy Jennifer’s artwork.


About mgill0627

I've always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I've never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I'm lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details. My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat's series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!
