TRACI HALLSTROM

AUGUST 27, 2012, REDDING, CALIFORNIA BookCollaborative.com announced the release of the book “CAT SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from the whiskered ones.” This cat art book features work from local artist TRACI HALLSTROM who is a resident of REDDING, CALIFORNIA.  Traci found her love for ceramic mosaic art almost by accident when she enrolled in a class she thought was on stain glass but and was in fact a ceramics sculpture class. She never looked back and hence; Fluffy Puppies Mosaics was born.  From Mosaic Stepping Stones to Mosaic Animals her motto is, “there is nothing I can’t do!”

This cat art book showcases artwork along with quotations about cats that cover topics including the bond between humans and their cats, the cat personality, of cats & dogs, and even wild cats.

Fluffy Puppies continuing Vacation on the Oregon Coast

Having a great time with my humans on the Oregon Coast. Drove over 900 miles thus far and still pawing. Met lots of other Fluffy Puppies and pawed in the sand on many occasions. Humans have taken over 1000 photos and can't wait to take more. See ya all when we get home. wOOf...wOOf...Eddie
