Percolating Ideas for a Dog Picture Frame and Scrabble Jewelry

The idea to make a unique dog picture frame came back around 1996. It percolated for quite a while before I was able to act on the idea. I started out at dog shows with about 40 dog frames. That was it. We certainly have a lot more now. The frames took a long time to develop. We went through many different materials until we found what works great for us. We’ve been selling dog picture frames for over 10 years now! Hard to believe…

Then came the handmade jewelry created with Scrabble tiles! We went through trial and error with the jewelry – finding suppliers whose materials we liked, glue that withstands water and wear better than so many others we tried, and on and on. Our Scrabble Bracelets seem to be enjoyed by people. My husband and I, as a team, create our bracelets. We both know with the drilling of the tiles, all the cutting, gluing, stringing, photographing, and all the rest. There is no way that only one of us could do this, as well as make the frames, keep up the household and stay sane. Every day, we are grateful we have each other in this business.

One of our greatest joys is when we get a convo from someone (or review) about how they, or someone special to them, LOVED the item they bought. There has even been several occasions where I actually got teary-eyed. Pretty good to have a business that makes you feel that good.

We also love vintage items – kind of goes with our vintage art in Paws In Time. So, we enjoy buying and selling vintage items when we have time. Unfortunately, it is not as often as we would like. You can visit our Etsy vintage shop at:

We look forward to continuing our business and coming up with new ideas. I’ve been thinking lately about a couple of new frame ideas that I’m eager to try. And Scrabble bracelets…when do I not think about new bracelets? So, hopefully we’ll be around for years to come.

Returns and exchanges
Please always contact us if there are any problems. We strive for A++++ service and products!

We do not guarantee against products that are damaged in transit, whether by US mail, or any other form of shipping that has been requested. If insurance is desired on domestic packages, please note that in the comments section of the order.

There may be a restocking charge on larger or unusual orders, so please contact us for information.

We do not accept returns on custom-made orders.
Payment to Paws In Time can be made by PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout (credit card).

Payments made by PayPal are to be made at the time of purchase.

All international orders must be paid with PayPal within 48 hours of the purchase.
We ship either USPS first class or priority.

All our listed items are ALREADY MADE. There is no delay time to create items (except for custom orders).

We provide tracking on every order. When tracking shows that the item has been delivered to the address provided, we consider the order complete. If any problems arise, it is the purchasers responsibility to contact us and the post office in order to work out a solution.

FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: We ship USPS International First Class mail. PLEASE NOTE: INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING increased dramatically by the USPS. We are so sorry about that to all our international customers! It costs over $13.00 to ship up to 1 pound! Keep in mind that we can ship up to 6 bracelets under a pound, so if you're considering more than 1 item, that does help some with the shipping. Again, we're sorry about the increase. Our international business has been almost non-existant because of the USPS increase.
It can take up to 21 days for delivery to some countries. Once the USPS tracking shows that the item has left the United States, we consider the order complete because (in most cases) there is no way to track the package to its final destination out of country. International customers will need to check with their postal carriers to inquire about any additional surcharges / taxes entering their country, as each country is different in their regulations.

Adding a personal photo/image to a bracelet $4.00 per addition

We are a small family business and really cannot afford to donate bracelets. We count on every dollar, and we get 100's of donation requests a year. We do, on occasion, donate pendants. Feel free to contact us and we'll see what we can do.
