For The Love Of Animals
I have to credit my grandmother for who I am today. There was not the option of laying on the couch back then watching TV. If you wanted to eat and keep warm then you needed to get up early and get to work in the gardens, bringing in wood and coal, canning for the winter, taking care of the animals,going to school and church. It was hard work but I learned so much from her. In the spare time at night we worked on crocheting. She was always making beautiful lace pillow cases and doilies for gifts. Not to mention wonderful fudge that I have never found the recipe for but I keep surfing the net. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements.
I mostly make items for dogs and cats for the Etsy shop. I attend a lot of craft shows during the year with an assortment of crafts.
As for the phrase for the love of animals; I am a huge animal lover. My dream is to have a large farm and rescue center but until then I can only send donations and donate
toys,beds and blankets I make in my down time to various rescues through out the year.
As you can see in the above pictures I grow my own catnip from tiny tiny seeds so I know there are no chemicals ever in contact with the plants.
Just a note about catnip- not all cats have a crazy reaction to it. Matter of fact, some cats and I have one don't give it a second thought. The other goes nuts as soon as I open the baggie.

I have a day job but I dream of crafting all day, I am thinking about all the things I have to do and new items to make. I make all the crafts in my shop when I am at home you will rarely see me not doing something craft wise.
Shorthair cat adopted from Wendys Felines I play a very important role in theToy Testing Lab. All new toy ideas that Mom comes up with are run by me first. If I like the test toy then I tell her to start cranking them out for the shop.
Short Leg Jack Russel Recently had laser surgery on tumor on eye sadly it is making my eye white. I like modeling the clothes Mom makes. I love the hoodies they are so nice and warm.
Min Pin I dont like modeling like Phoebe does, I just cant sit still that long. But I put up with it because I am in temporary custody, it is the least I can do. Besides giving her tiny kisses.
Rescued from Westmoreland Shelter Really Modeling is not my thing but what can you say when Mom asks you. I am a large lap dog and house clown with lots and lots of kisses
Bailey rescued Westmoreland Shelter I have a handicap but I am told I am the best and happiest dog in the house. I speak for all disable dogs because our spirit is not broken. That is petswithdisibilites motto. I am Moms inspiration
Rescued Westmoreland Shelter I am Baileys real sister but I fortunately am not handicap. I am the Security Guard always on high alert! Nothing will get by me without me barking and telling everyone. Mom says I do my job to well.
Cat Found in window well of abandon home I have had a lot of struggles and used up my 9 lives all that has left me well- not all there. I am a Diva and spend most of my time on the bathroom counter in the mirror. I dont model or play with toys!
Occasionally I will have wood projects in the shop. Bob is the wood cutter,he is a whiz with the Jigsaw!
