Funny that I would have popular dog, horse & cat name!

In case you didn't notice, my name is Ginger. Yes, that is my real name. I'm sure you've known a dog, horse or cat with the same name. And I'm also sure that they were adorable and had a sparkling personalities! Just sayin...

I am a self taught graphic artist...kind of. I don't use Photoshop so I'm still not sure if I can really call myself one or not:) I opened my Etsy shop when my hours at work were cut from 40 hours per week to 24. With all of that time on my hands, I started creating, using the tools I know, CorelDraw and my computer.

In 2010 I was ready to open my Etsy shop and life hasn't been the same since! I could never have imagined the doors of opportunity Etsy would open for me. Many of my little dogs are on licenced products, and occasionally my Etsy friends have contacted me from as far away as Puerto Rico to let me know they've seen a large poster or framed picture in a store.

I love dogs…can you tell? The bond we develop with them is very deep. Perhaps it is because they have been our friends, work mates, helpers and confidants for centuries. We've hunted together and shared our food and shelter, played together, protected each other, and loved each other most of all. Because of this, dogs somehow have come to understand what we are trying to tell them; they try and anticipate what we want and they listen when we speak.
Each specific breed or Mutt has attributes and personalities that can be unique to them. The same can be said for horses and cats.

The things I most love about what I do is to pair each of the animals I create with just the right word of wisdom, inspirational or motivational quote that helps bring the words to life. Our pets are like that…inspiring, motivational (would we really go for a walk each day if not for our dog?), and full of wisdom. They love unconditionally, look past our shortcomings, they take time to play and then take time to rest. And they always run to greet the ones they love!

I appreciate all of you who have helped make my little shop the success I feel it is. Whether I am standing at my button maker machine, or heat pressing a Dry Erase Board, answering emails or convos, I love what I do. But most of all I love working with the adorable faces I create.

I hope that I bring them to life for you as well inspire, motivate or make you smile. {Ginger}

Shop policies

Last updated on April 13, 2016
Almost all of the items you see in my shop are made by me -sitting in front of my computer, which sits on top of my beautiful Pottery Barn Corner desk (which I saved many months for and finally got!) in a rather messy bedroom converted to office, where my printer, paper, inks, mats, tape, mailing supplies and orders all share the space. The Inspirational Dog Art Series was created because I love inspirational quotes and positive messages, bright color and of course...dogs. It happened by accident one day and I haven't looked back. I love designing them, and try to add additional breeds and other pets as I have time. Check back often!
