This is a listing for three super sweet Star House style likenesses of your pets ready to celebrate, decorate, and imitate your pets. The photos accompanying this listing are examples of some of the many pets that I have created for folks. Please click on the blue "items for sale" to the right of the photos to view more examples in my Star House Esty shop.

This custom creation currently takes about 6 weeks to make from purchase to post office bon voyage.

The process:

*1* Decide that you would like me to design and make a likeness of your pet or someone else's pet. These little creations make fabulous gifts. Please make sure the above time frame works for you. If you have any questions or would like to request a rush order (and would like me to calculate/apporve it/ create you a custom listing) please convo me.

*2* Select a listing or listings from the current listings in my shop. There are also listings for folks who would like two pets, three pets, four pets, a pet and a child, a pet and a tree, or a pet and a fire hydrant. There are also listings for stumps stands, pointy sticks and eco finish if you would like to add these to your topper (see links below).

*3* Purchase. Here is a grand etsy tutorial on how to purchase if you are new to etsy:

*4* Send me photos (at least one close-up, side and back) You can send these wonderful photos to me in an esty convo as long as the files are smaller than 2M. If your files are larger you can send them to me in an email to urastarhouse [!at] yahoo.com.
Please be sure to title the email "pet information" or something noticeable like that.

*5* I will take about three days to create a pencil and paper sketch. I will then scan and send the sketch to you through email or convo (which ever way you gave me your details). You can then let me know what changes or additions you would like me to make. I will them scan you a modified sketch for your approval. Any additional changes will follow the same process of modification, scanning and approval until you say that you think the sketch is ready to transfer to wood.

*6* I then transfer the final design to local poplar wood (a fast growing hardwood sustainably logged from our friends' land near Asheville, NC). I cut the design out, sand the edges, burn on the details, and paint it with US made, non-toxic liquid water colors. I then take photos of the toppers (if there is time) and send you photos (these photos are for you to use how ever you would like, facebook, holiday cards, blogs, ect. and if it is alright with you I will add then to a listing in my shop to be another example). The toppers are then finished with my homemade bee's wax and organic jojoba oil finish. The toppers are polished and then packaged and taken down to the friendly folks at my local post office, where they are shipped first class and generally arrive (in the U.S.) to your post/mail box in two to three days.

The little pet will be between 2" and 6" tall and about 2"-6" long depending on the size of the pet and the size you are wanting. If you need then to be sized differently just let me know.
