“I'm not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.”

A little bit about Cat Belle

"Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle."

It has always been a dream of mine to open a ‘kawaii’ and handicraft store. My love of all things adorable, creative and Japanese began at a very young age and has since developed into a passion that has blossomed beautifully and hopefully will continue to do so. ^^

Crafting and creating are also major passions in my life. A life without creating is really no life at all! When I am not drawing, sewing, crafting or working on my blog you can find me buried in a book. I am what you might call a self taught ‘sewist’. I still have much to learn, but my favorite thing in the world is taking old materials and re-purposing them and giving them new life. These one of a kind upcycled creations are available for you to own and love here and on my Etsy!

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” -Lewis Carroll

A little additional info about our store and products

About Our Store

"No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time."

UK Ready Stock

Everything you see in the UK Ready Stock category has been hand selected and meets our high standards of quality and ‘joy’ factor. You can buy in full confidence knowing that everything there is stocked and ready to ship from the UK within the same day of ordering.

(See our FAQ for more details on postage.)

International Stock

Our international stock comes from overseas distributors, this means that it may take as much as 3 weeks to get to you, and we cannot always guarantee consistent quality as manufacturers standards vary… If you are likely to be upset by small imperfections we advise you purchase from the UK ready stock where quality is checked by us in person.

Handcrafted Goods

Our hand crafted goods are created personally by our In-House artists, every purchase of these items you make goes towards… Well, it should go towards feeding the artists but its more likely that further crafting supplies will be bought. Don’t you know we live off dew and universe energy?

In-House Artists

“If you set to work to believe everything, you will tire out the believing-muscles of your mind, and then you'll be so weak you won't be able to believe the simplest true things.”

We keep our in house artists locked away in a suitably well-lit attic with plenty of space and large boxes of crafting supplies. Occasionally we may slip them a cup of tea and a biscuit or two to ensure maximum productivity.

Everything you see in the Handcrafted section has been made by one of our two captive- sorry, very willing and highly motivated– artists with love and care. Buying something made by them means they get an extra biscuit or two. So please feed the artists!

They prefer to remain relatively secluded, being temperamental creatures so we shall skip detailed introductions and leave them to their creating…

How about we slip away now and see what they have produced?
