About

It all began with a little dream...........

I've been sewing and crafting as long as I can remember, a talent I inherited from my late grandmother Nona. As a little child, I'd sit in her lap as she sewed on her old Singer treadle machine. I'd sit next to her and watch her crochet and embroider by hand. I wanted to learn everything she could teach me and she gladly taught me everything she could.

Over the years I began to master all types of arts and crafts and made clothing for my entire family. After a divorce, I had to go back to work so like three generations before me, I became a barber/stylist. I didn't have as much time for my crafting anymore and I missed it. So, a few years ago, I unlocked that seamstress inside me and I haven't stopped since.

I opened my etsy shop in February 2010. It was a slow start, but I was patient. In December of 2012, I was able to purchase a multi needle embroidery machine. That's when my hobby started looking more like a business.

After owning my own barbering business for over 23 years, the common physical challenges began to take a major toll on me. I had to make changes in order to continue so I started to split my time 50/50 between cutting hair and sewing/embroidery. I closed down my barber/style shop in September 2012, and began renting a booth in another shop. I'd work three days a week cutting hair and the rest of the week was spent sewing at home.

Unfortunately, just one year later, on September 15, 2013, I shattered my left arm and shoulder in a bad fall at home. I spent over five hours in surgery. I have a metal plate and sixteen screws holding my arm and shoulder in place. My hair cutting days were officially over.

After about three months of initial recovery time, I officially started working this business full time. It was difficult with the arm and shoulder pain, and it wasn't the exit I had planned from barbering. But things don't always happen as we plan do they? Sometimes a tragic event can be a hidden blessing. I didn't quit and I didnt' give up, despite months of long term healing my arm and shoulder required. I found ways to continue despite my disability.

Today, my little dream has come true. I'm working seven days a week to create unique items for your pets. I've recently expanded my business to include a clothing line for small dogs. These items are created with love and passion for dogs. Each piece is designed with your fur kid's comfort and safety in mind. All items are stitched in a smoke free sewing space.

Unless you count my Shih Tzus, I have no staff. It's just me doing it all. Cutting the fabrics, sewing, embroidering, pressing, packaging, shipping, etc. Friends ask me, "Why don't you hire someone to help you"? It's simple. Every item is made and created from my heart. I can't teach someone else to do that. Besides, it wouldn't be "my" work. No one else is going to do things my way, so I will continue as a one woman show. I need to know every item leaving my home meets my standards of quality. The only way I can guarantee that is to do it myself. That does mean you will have to wait several weeks for your item. Maybe even more than you or I would like. But, I will not cut corners just to produce a quickly made product for a quick turnaround. I want to stand out among the rest.

I'm extremely picky. All fabrics are washed and pre shrunk before cutting. Each item is neatly ironed and starched with my own "home made" pressing starch. Your doggie toys and bandanas and will be packaged individually so that they arrive in perfect condition. The clothing is shipped in padded mailers or boxes.

When you open your package, I am confident you will see the quality workmanship, feel the love that went into making it and find the wait well worth it.


Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Our toys have been known to last for years with no rips or tears. We do not make our toys from fleece as most Etsy sellers do. Our toys are made with the highest quality Minky we can buy. It is much thicker and stronger than fleece. We feel our toys are very durable. However, some dogs are aggressive chewers and tend to shred just about any thing stuffed. If this describes your dog, please be aware of this in advance. We do not replace chewed up toys. Please use supervision when your dog plays with any stuffed toy. Although our toys get rave reviews, no toy is indestructible.


Our blankets are purchased form the manufacturer. We design them and stitch all the embroidery and appliques. Our blankets are the softest on the market. We have done our research and we know these are without a doubt the highest quality and softest available.


Measure twice for bandanas. You must provide us with accurate neck sizes to insure the perfect fit. We will use the measurement you provided in your instructions, so please be accurate.
