About

My love of animals and crafts has come together to create my shop For Paws and Home. I have been crafting as long as I can remember. I think it all started when my Grandmother used to sit and crochet beautiful pineapple doilies. I asked her to teach me and she said I was to young so I was handed the old potholder loom. We had enough potholders to make rugs with! I think she was tired of seeing potholders and graduated me to a skein of yarn and she started showing me the basics of crocheting which is still one of my favorite past times.
If I won the lottery I would build a boarding kennel and a special building to board and rescue dogs and cats with the ability to handle disabled pets. Of course a gift shop is a must !
Having a disable dog has taught me so much. I had been a groomer and worked in kennels for years and never ran across any disable dogs. That is until the baby I adopted became one…

Having a disable dog has taught me so much. I had been a groomer and worked in kennels for years and never ran across any disable dogs. That is until the baby I adopted became one. That is when I meet Joyce and Mike the owners and operators of petswithdisabilities in Prince Frederick Md. It is such a wonderful place, if you need help with your disable pet,would like to adopt one,make a donation,or buy some merchandise please check out :

Through out the year I donate toys and blankets that I make in my spare time to several animal rescues.
One of my favs is Rikki's Refuge in Orange Va. They house all animals just not cats and dogs. Check them out on facebook and their blog. They also have a store in Fredericks burg, Va called Retails where they sell donated items and the money goes to the refuge. I took a ton of stuff there and am working on more. When you get a chance look them up they even have tours if you are up to it.
