Most wonderful seller ever!!! Her squeaky toys are top notch, quality hand made and adorable. My dog loves the ones we got. I even got two as gifts for my breeder's dogs and they couldn't get enough!We'll be back for more soon!

This round bed is terrific! My 2 cats absolutely love it. It's the first time they've preferred a bed to a common cardboard box. It's large enough for my 2 girls to share (8 lbs & 11 lbs). I love the ability to adjust its shape with the drawstring... and with the provided pocket, the cats aren't tempted to pull on the strings. I would definitely recommend this round bed. It's so much more beautiful than most pet furniture. Well worth the investment.
A True Obsession
I am a self-taught seamstress, having refined my craft over many years, first making items for the home and then working on costumes for theatre arts. It just seemed natural, loving pets the way I do, to begin using my sewing skills to create unique pet products. Starting a business is no simple task. There were dba’s to file, a logo to create, pet beds to design/test, materials to source, and photography skills to hone. Not to mention learning the intricacies of my new serger sewing machine. But it was all worth the effort. I opened my virtual doors in October of 2011.
Each weekday I leave my day job at noon and head to my central Texas home studio to create. Today I stop at a fabric store to pick up some light pink thread, and then to Thundercloud’s for a tuna sub. Yum!
I have a new crate mat pattern to design. My cat Lucy makes cutting the freezer paper difficult as she lays her body across its length. Then it’s time to cut the fabric and sew. I finish my project and grab my Sony digital camera. I get Lucy to model several beds for me. I try moving her to just one more, but her low growl tells me to handle her gently…she really wants to sleep now. My husband and I found Lucy a year ago at the local Wendy’s, approaching every car in the drive-thru lane as the occupant placed an order. You just never know what you will get with your burger and fries. Sometimes life can be very, very good.
I complete my photography; work in Photoshop will come later. Right now I’ll enjoy some online conversation with customers, box a couple of overseas packages, and take them to the post office. Then it’s time for dinner and an old movie on Turner classics. The cats envelope me as I relax on the sofa. Tomorrow I will design and create more functional, beautiful pet products. It's a true obsession!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Are you new to Etsy and want to make a purchase? Please read this:
Please note you can make a credit or debit card purchase on PayPal as a guest (no account). PayPal is a third party credit card processor that keeps all of your transaction information secure. Residents of Texas are subject to an 8.25% state sales tax.
I am happy to combine shipping rates on multiple item purchases when possible. You will need to provide your city, state and zip code (or country) for an accurate rate. Most of my items already use calculated shipping that combine shipping charges. Your order will be shipped to your Etsy account address. If you need it shipped to a different address, please contact me when you order to make arrangements.
Items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, unless product weight makes shipping Parcel Select Ground or First Class far more economical. If you would prefer USPS Priority Mail shipping on multiple and/or heavier items please let me know and I can give you a price quote. Delivery confirmation and insurance (for product orders over $25.00) is included on all domestic shipments. If you receive a damaged item or package, please contact me immediately to resolve the issue. The item(s) and packaging must be saved for inspection by the delivery company.
Most of my items can be shipped internationally. First Class Mail International is quoted in pricing for items weighing 4 lbs or less. The exception is my medium size pet beds that weight exactly 4 lbs; with the new USPS size regulations they have to be shipped Priority Mail International due to their bulky package size which exceeds new regulations. This has raised the international shipping rate considerably on the medium pet beds, but I will still ship them overseas. Large size pet beds are only shipped to Canada via Priority Mail International. Please convo me with the item(s) you would like to purchase and your country for rates, if not provided.
Customs fees or duties are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Due to the high expense of international shipping, your order is NOT insured. Tracking is provided on priority mail only until it leaves the US. I take great care in packaging your order, however if an item is damaged in transit, I am not responsible for the cost of that item or its replacement.

Please take the time to view the details provided on each listing so there are no surprises when your order arrives. I do not allow returns for any custom orders. For ready-to-ship items, please note that I cannot perform a return once a pet has used an item. If a pet has not used an item and you wish to make a return, simply notify me by email within 3 days of receipt, and send the piece back in new/unused condition within 14 days, and I will refund your full purchase price, less original shipping fees. You will be responsible for all return shipping charges.
