I live with my husband Gary and my dog Cosmo. His nickname is Woobie (he is my third child) and my parakeet.
Another passion of mine is animals. I love all animals and support my local Humane Society. My dog is such a HUGE part of my life I can't imagine life without him. We spend a lot of time together and that's why I named my shop WoobieLove.
Thank you for browsing my shop and supporting handmade.
