About Cathy

I love creating things out of felt, yarn and paper.
I love making things that make a home cozier, personalized and heartfelt with a bit of that vintage feel thrown in.

As a mom to two beautiful daughters who love to express themselves, I know how important it is to surround yourself with things you love. Things you cherish. Things that are unique to you.

Through my online shop, Catshy Crafts, I put to use my loves of photography, crafting, and design to create custom-made embroidery hoop art, yarn wreaths and felt flowers.

I think that's why my custom-made, personalized pieces are the most requested items from my shop. Collaborating with you to create that extra-special piece for you or a loved one is such an amazing experience.


Why Catshy? (pronounced cat*shy)

  • It's an anagram of Cathy's. 
  • My husband's nickname for me is Cat. 
  • I'm shy. 
  • It's me. 
  • I like cats. 
  • My then-seven-year-old daughter approved. (She shot down a lot of other names before I settled on this one!)
