The opportunity presented itself late in 2008 when my hubby got burned and I lost my job of 10 years at a dental office when I stayed home to care for him. I took it as a sign that it was time to get back into my first love, crafting.

So here I am on a new venture to keep our furry friends warm and happy and to meet more wonderful customers. I love to make anything that brings a smile to people or pets. I love working with bright, cheery, fun fabrics.

I hope you will come along on this new journey with me and enjoy the ride! And remember to always smile :)
