Or should I say… the Owls and the Pussycat!
I have been working with my mom, on late nights, to mass produce wrist rests and softies for a “Sale for a Cause” I am planning to launch this August. Part of the proceeds will be donated to aid my nephew who continues to battle Hemophilia. But before we could even get started, I received an order to make an owl and a cat wrist rest for the client to gift her mom and sister. Yey!
I was really happy that she took her time to go through my fb page and look at my sample photos. Unfortunately, the fabric print she initially liked was no longer available; but good thing Cotton Depot in Glorietta 5 had a similar one.
So I went ahead and made the ordered softies. But while I was making them, the poem The Owl and the Pussycat kept coming to mind. Was it because I liked the poem that much? Was it because of the poem that I even loved making owls and cats? Nah. It was most likely just a cute coincidence. But perhaps it was also because of a funny short film by Nestle Ph that was aired here back in 2011.
You may watch the video here:
The short film has a lot of funny things and jokes in it but it does have a moral lesson to it: to never give up and do your best at all times!
And that is what I hope to do for the next couple of weeks. To do my best! In making more Owls, Cats and other softies that will create smiles in others’ faces – to ours, to yours, to the clients’, and to my nephew’s.
I know I started making owls since 2009 and the cat wrist rests I’ve forgotten. But doesn’t really matter whether it is the poem or shortfilm that inspired me to making more Owls and Pussycats. I just love them and I know I will continue making more. And I hope you will love them too!
Won’t you? Would you? Just let me know and comment below!
P.S. I was supposed to launch the sale first week of August but since I myself is undergoing physical therapy, we had to slow down production for a bit. But do not be dismayed because the softies are definitely on their way! The sale will be launched locally here in the Philippines but if you are interested to get them internationally, feel free to email me at email@example.com for more details.
In everything, give thanks! To God be the glory! 🙂
