Announcement   I love to make things, always have. So my name: makingstuffwithlove :) Be assured that anything you get from me will have been loved already, at its conception and while it was being created. I LOVE CUSTOM ORDERS! If you'd like me to make you something special, please just ask. I welcome all questions, comments or just idle conversations.

I'm a proud member of the PetsJubilee team here on Etsy! Best group of people out there :)

About

I LOVE DOGS! And yes, I mean to shout :)

I live in Alabama, and as a child, our town was too small for a shelter of its own. We had to travel about 30 miles north to Decaur to go look at adoptable pets. My mom would load me and my brother up in the car telling us sternly: “We are NOT getting a pet today! We are JUST GOING TO LOOK.” Yeah, right. We never came home empty handed. My mom is a pushover to this day if anyone, human or animal, needs help. We would come home with the most horrible looking puppy or kitten and begin to “love it to pretty”, a miracle that CAN be done, as I have seen it for myself too many times to count. So that’s the first reason I do this: I LOVE dogs and I love my mom for introducing me at an early age to pets!

And, YOU are my second reason! Not a day, hour, minute, goes by that I am not feeling as if I am the most blessed creature on earth. To create these tiny dogs for other owners is bliss! It is therapeutic to my lasting childhood horror at having to leave needy pets behind. And so this is most fantastic aspect of it all: it gives me an opportunity to learn about and love so many more dogs than my own five. It spreads my world to different countries even and to the most wonderful and enthusiastic, dog loving people on this earth. And that includes YOU :) And if you are still here reading, THANK YOU for sharing your dog with me. YOU are the most important reason I do this -- oh, and your dear furbaby, of course!

Here's the fine print: None of this would be possible if not for a pretty darn close to perfect man, that I found and made my husband. He loves dogs (and our cat and bird) like I do -- and makes me clean behind myself so I don't just craft myself in and fade away......

    When Etsy made this space available, I went blank. How much or how little to write? How do you express the love between a dog and their owner in such a simple form? I decided to begin at the beginning, which is as far back as I can remember....
