JD Harmon's Profile

About

Welcome to my shop!

My name is JD. I have traveled and lived all over the USA and now reside in New Mexico, in the high desert. I love the wide open sky and spaces. I have done arts and crafts for over 50 years. Both my grandmothers, great-grandmothers and my mother have done and still do arts and crafts….so I guess you can say it’s in my blood. My Grandmother who lived to be 105 years of age has hand quilted hundreds of quilts in her life time and has given them all away to friends and family. I have a collections of her pieces myself. My other Grandmother crocheted many afghans, baby blankets, sweaters and booties for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I learned from both of these GREAT women. I love working with both my mind and hands to create beautiful things. My Spirit is very happy during these times.

I love taking the most…

I love taking the most unlikely and likely items and turning them into art.

Ok…now if you are wondering about the name of my shop….for the past 20 years I have grown a passion for Chihuahua’s. I haven't always been a Chihuahua lover, 20 years ago my spouse and daughter talked me into our first and since them my heart has been filled with joy. We had always had big dogs and I thought what am I going to do with this little thing. In my opinion, pound for pound a Chihuahua can do just about anything a big dog can do.
I decided to use the first two letters of each of our first 4 Chihuahua’s names that has come into our lives to name my shop. AND….NO, we do not have 4, 5 or 6 Chihuahua’s at one time. (Even though we love them) We will continue to rescue/adopt as we can. We keep a limit of three at one time. Our "Mama" Gizmo lived to be over 17 years of age. She was our first Chihuahua and what a beautiful little soul she was. Because of her and all that have followed we will reopen our hearts and home again and again by rescuing another furry baby and give them a forever home.
