WOO HOO!!!!  After 14 months of searching, we found a home that is perfect for us, so that means we're moving (so is my studio - right into its own separate space!!). I'll only be taking a few custom orders for the next six weeks, but to take some of the sting out, trinket boxes and paintings are ON SALE.  :)

I forgot I had this mini trinket box "left over" from Saturday's show and just listed it in the online shop.  :)  http://skelekitty.com/aqua-retro-kitty-trinket-box

EXTENDED!  I will donate 20% of all non-clearance purchases from HTTP://SKELEKITTY.COM through midnight tonight!  I've chosen a Pit Bull and Pit mix rescue/adoption/support group that serves the Sacramento area.  This group LOVES dogs and I'm constantly amazed at the work they do (check 'em out at http://pitcrew.org)

These little pretties make a great gift and are under $25, but would still send $5 to help the pups over at Pit Crew!  Every dollar counts - and they add up! #givingtuesday  http://skelekitty.com/nocturnal-bloom-night-blooming-cereus-cactus-flower-earrings

Look at this small example of the #geekery  which could be coming to your house AND helping out some totally adorable Pibbles!!  LOOK AT IT, I SAY!!!!!  http://skelekitty.com/all-the-things/filter/category/geekery/

20% of the money goes to help Pit Crew Sacramento, 100% of the nerdiness goes right to you.   #givingtuesday

+Darrell Crone Drop me an email me (my contact info is on my profile) if you want to talk about something in the shop - I'm not really on G+ that often so I miss posts and PMs here.  :)

It's more #GivingTuesday stuff!  20% (I upped the ante) of the purchase price would be given to Pit Crew Sacramento to help dogs AND owners!  http://skelekitty.com/red-catrina-original-12x16-mixed-media-on-canvas-panel

Story
Tagline
artist, geek, animal lover (and Skelekitty's alter ego)
Introduction
Artist, geek, creator of Skelekitty, road course driver, grammar guru and crazy-woman, often subject to the whims of a Jack Russell Terrier.

I swear.  A LOT.

Bio (of sorts)

Krissi was raised by a pack of wild attorneys & a large console color TV in the SF Bay Area during the 1970s and 80s. She currently lives in Folsom, CA with her long-suffering husband where she spends her days mixing paint, watching it dry and playing with her Jack Russell Terrier. She is arguably best known as the creator of Skelekitty, whose popularity grows exponentially much to Krissi's chagrin.

Her blog, Krissi's Art Studio, and YouTube channel/vlog of the same name, feature tips, meandering stories, tutorials, show-n-tells and reviews for artists, crafters, collectors, geeks, car fanatics, girlie girls and a few “select others.”

Krissi spends far too many hours online, fighting for time with “that darn skeleton cat." While they fight over computer time, Krissi's Art Studio and Skelekitty & Friends peacefully co-exist in one online shop, where you can find fine art originals, prints and jewelry featuring her images.
