About

My Story

I lost some important people in my life within a few months. I was lost for a while. I started creating some gifts for my family to remember the lives we lost. Soon, I was asked by friends to make some for them. After losing my dog, I couldn't find anything out there that would honor her. The pet urn journey began. I took a year tweaking, finding the right hinges, the right sizes, and how to make them close tight without a latch or lock. After all that was figured out, I spent time using just the right finish so I knew these would last forever. It has been a wonderful journey so far. It is an honor to help anyone through their grieving journey. We hurt so much because we can love so deeply. My brother says I am a person who likes to "touch" people. I don't know any other way to live this life I have. I hope I can touch your life in a positive way while we briefly meet. The time you take to send me pictures is time well spent. Your creation will be handed down to your generations for years to come. It is always my honor to be a small part of that.

    I absolutely love my family and my dogs. Currently, I have a Saint Bernard & a chocolate Labradoodle. They go on fun car rides with me. We have a police K-9 who works then comes home to be our family dog. I am blessed to do what I love!

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer Communication?

I love communication! I will send you pictures of the progress so I know you will love your personalized creation before I mail it to you. I know this is personal for you. I know it is your time to send me your pictures. It takes both of us to create this for you. I believe you should be a part of the whole process.

How fast do you work?

Most of the time (except Christmas), I will design your creation within 1-3 days after you purchase. Most creations take 3 days to complete and I ship 2-3 day priority. Please contact me if you need a rush order. I say "allow 2 weeks" just in case I have an emergency or get sick. Most of the time your creation is shipped within 7 days.

What shipping method do you use?

I ship 2-3 day priority. I have no control over the post office. Sometimes, they make mistakes. I am not responsible for any delays from the post office.

How do I get you the photo's and instructions?

I offer a form link in the item description for each listing on Etsy. You may download your photo's and give me instructions through the form. After you have paid and submitted the form, you will hear from me shortly.

I am grieving and I can't even think.....

Grieving is so hard! I am here for you! I will be your guide to design the perfect memorial creation. I will help you make good decisions and together we can create the perfect tribute to the one you are missing.

I am not sure what I want on my pet urn. Can you help?

Of course I can! On the form I ask for 2 colors to give me a starting point so I know what colors you favor. Tell me a little bit about your pet and I can get creative adding details so their final resting place matches their personality. I will always send pictures of the designs so we can make sure it is perfect.

What form of communication do you love?

I love to text pictures of the designs and the whole process. I NEVER use your number for anything else other than communication for the brief time we are together. Texting is faster for me as I take pictures and can easily send them to you. If you live in another country besides the U.S. I am happy to email you. I usually email in the morning or evening as I work through the day.

How many pictures can I add to an urn?

You can add one photo to the top, the front, the left side, the right side and the back. I offer an option to add a photo to the inside of the lid for an additional cost. I also offer the option to purchase a wood tag. You can add a photo to each side of the wood tag. I also offer Photo Collage Urns. You may add up to 4 photo's per side.

What size Urn or Keepsake Box should I buy?

For Pets: Some people choose to buy a bigger size to add a collar, tags, toy, cards or any other mementos inside along with the ashes. The size small is perfect for a cat or a small dog. The size medium seems to be a favorite for everyone. If you would like to see what ashes look like inside please message me.
Size Small is for pets under 55lbs
Size Medium is for pets under 120lbs
Size Large is for pets under 200lbs.

For human ashes:
A size small is perfect for an infant just born. If you would like to keep any mementos inside, order a medium. An adult under 200lbs order a size large

For Keepsake Boxes:
A size medium or large is perfect to keep treasures inside. I would not recommend a size small to use as a keepsake box.
