About

Saving the universe, one stray at a time!

ABOUT OUR SHOP:

We really enjoy custom pieces - it keeps business fun, and helps us come up with new ideas for the shop.

If you're looking for something that you don't see pictured, place a custom order!

Most of our items are handmade to order from Perler fuse beads. Each piece is built on a pegboard, with beads measuring 5mm. Beads are carefully placed with tweezers. Once the piece is laid out, it is lined with painter's tape, holes punched into the tape for heat transfer, flipped, and ironed until the beads fused. Once the piece has pressed and cooled, flexible and absorbent cork backing is mounted to the underside.

Many of our sprites in the store can be turned into magnets, wall art, or themed coasters. If you don't see something you like, please ask!

HISTORY:

Sweet Willow suffers from a heart murmur, anxiety, and PICA. Early in 2017, she became very ill, and it took several months for doctors to diagnose her with hypothyroidism. Some of the complications with hypothyroidism include heart disease, kidney disease, and increased anxiety. In April of 2018, we scraped together all our cash and credit limit, she underwent a special procedure that injected her with radioactive iodine and CURED her thyroid!

This procedure, also known as I-131, cost us roughly $1,300.

By purchasing crafts from our shop, you help us to pay off the debt Willow’s procedure. Any funds raised in excess of her bills will be used to support the feral colony we manage, and provide them with food, shelters, and veterinary care.

Care instructions

All stainless steel jewelry can be cleaned with a soft cloth, such as an eyeglass cleaning cloth. Do not scrub with abrasive fabrics or cleansers.

Care instructions

Store all Perler items flat when not in use, to avoid warping. If warping occurs, lay flat and gently heat the plastic until soft, then press between two flat surfaces (such as heavy books) until cool.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are shipped with plain wrapping and minimal packaging to conserve resources and limit trash waste. If gift wrapping is selected, small items will come in a translucent organza bag, and large items will come wrapped in tissue paper.

What makes you different?

We believe firmly in paying it forward. 20% of profits from EVERY ORDER goes to Willowick Pet Food Pantry, a local nonprofit that provides the community with thousands of pounds of pet food each month!
