Announcement   Designing couture dog collars, leashes, and accessories for both ends of the leash.

********************* ANNOUNCEMENT **************** ANNOUNCEMENT **************
The Twisted Cow will NO LONGER OFFER CAT COLLARS. Take advantage of the discounted prices and shipping on our Cat Collar CLEARANCE.

We love creating the collars, but our focus is going to shift back to the dogs. I will be clearing out all pre-made collars and creating collars to finish up our current hardware.

Additionally, we will offering limited internationally shipping with the exception of Canada. The International First Class shipping cost is just too much (even for the little things) and there is simply nothing that we can do to reduce the shipping for our 'cross the pond' folks except discontinue/limit shipping to Europe, Australia, etc. We will be offering International Priority for some of our higher end items (when available), but continuing to offer all International First Class to Canada because is it somewhat reasonable at the higher weights. Yeah it sucks, but we have no control over the shipping costs.

Thanks everyone for your support and we sincerely apologize for any heartburn this will cause.

********************* ANNOUNCEMENT **************** ANNOUNCEMENT **************
SHIPPING UPDATE: The USPS has raised its shipping prices SIGNIFICANTLY especially the International shipping rates. All rates from this point on will reflect the USPS retail rates for both Domestic and International shipping.

A bit of FYI: I do have a full time job and The Twisted Cow is my sanity check and my dream job. So, most responses are answered in the evening unless I have my cell phone / iPad handy and have time to respond. I will get most orders out within 10 - 12 days, but I usually operate on the 5 - 7 day time frame. If you have an event coming up, please be mindful of my time frames as they relate to yours. Most of the time I can accommodate without compromising my first come first serve process, but if you are in a rush please let me know your situation and we can go from there. If you are overseas / international, RUSH orders may be a bit more difficult as I cannot predict or control the postal service between here and there. So, be prepared to pay at least $40 for express shipment depending on the order size.

Visit my destashing supply shop: http://www.missflossielulu.etsy.com. I will be destashing a lot of stuff as I downsize and specialize.

About

Combining Urban flair with a bit of fun and luxury

Sometimes you have to wonder how you arrived at a particular juncture in your life...

I was not a particularly stellar student in high school mainly because I was just too cool for books and had a bit too much love for the Southern slowness and ice tea on the porch-ness attitude. I have always had a love for crafting and somehow managed to turn anything that I touched into a craft project (sometimes at the most inconvenient times!). Actually, my very first craft project was a crocheted hat for my sock monkey Mrs. Peabody (I was around 12 /13). I had never crocheted in my life, but I managed to figure out how to do a single crochet, link it, drop stitches, and create a little round hat for Mrs. Peabody (she looked marvelous BTW)! For a few years I thought about that hat and my budding crafter itch was on its way to becoming a full blown rash.

I graduated from high school hell in the early nineties and joined the Navy (the Circus would have sounded cooler). I married a cool dude, earned a commission (Naval Officer y'all), and graduated from college with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Economics and a Masters in Health Care Administration.

In 2005, I discovered dog shows and feel in love with two Chow Chows. One major lesson that I learned is that dog shows have plenty of great products that you seldom see in the big-box stores and that includes all things doggie fashion. My issue wasn’t an inability to find collars for my puffy boys that led to me to create my own line of collars, it was my passion for manipulating bold, bright, and whimsical fabrics into something beautiful and functional.

After 7 years of all things dog and cat, I am still amazed at what I can do with a little denim, rickrack, bubblegum, and a paperclip (MacGyver humor)! My studio is bursting with fabulously fun fabrics, sparkly trims, imported ribbons, and wild ideas to keep me busy and your four-legged babe looking F A B U L O U S! So, when you are you in the mood for something that screams LOOK AT ME!!!, The Twisted Cow is your place.
