Happy Belated Small Business Week!


I’m only 5’1”, which is the qualifying height to be considered a Small Business Owner.


The qualifying factor is that I am the owner, president, secretary, and treasurer of Crimson Cat Studios. My husband is my assistant, and second shooters and other assistants I hire happen to be very talented fellow artists and friends, and are often small business owners, themselves.

When you support a small business you help a household pay their bills, take care of their family, and fund their dreams.

If you would like to help small businesses succeed, you can take the following steps:


Leave positive reviews at Yelp, Google, or Facebook!

If you have had a negative experience, help the small business proprietor by letting them know and giving them a chance to correct the situation. Most small business owners want nothing more than to grow from their mistakes!

Visit their Etsy store and “favorite” their work!

And come visit their booth this summer at the Glenwood Arts Fair (and maybe Ravenswood Artwalk)!

Like and Share their social media posts!

THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME! And thanks for supporting independent artists.
