I impress even myself. HA ha ha ha ha

So, I have moved all the blah, blah, blah about my dogs over to another website, so you avid crafters, quilters, etc don’t have to listen to me blah, blah, blah about my super awesome fur babies!!  🙂  You’re welcome!

Here is my blog for the dog stuff:  https://wagswagpetsupplies.wordpress.com/  I have some cool new stuff coming up, in case you are interested.  I will be playing “mad scientist” this weekend with my fellow crafter, IF I don’t have to go drop off a foster dog in Vegas (yeah… my life is SO hard.)

New shop name? New products! And we fail Puppy Kindergarten…. LOL

This is me and my dog, Kyah, on the day that she turned 4 months old….  so about 2 weeks ago.  She is fun, but also a LOT of work.  Anyone who has ever owned a Rhodesian Ridgeback knows that they can be stubborn, high-maintenance divas.  I love it…..  and I am equally as stubborn so, rest assured, I always win.  She has almost completed Puppy Kindergarten, yet she still would rather play with the other dogs than to come when given the command.

I recently split my Etsy store into 2 different store, one for fabric and one for completed items.  I have Christmas stockings, pet collars and leashes, and recently some pet blankets.  I then realized that I have mostly pet items in a store that was to be primarily for quilts and such.  My quilts are mostly gone before I can get them finished, so that is a type of backfire.  However, I have a LOT of pet items in a store that is called “Sew Stitchin Awesome.”  So, I have decided that I need to move my pet items to a store more appropriately named, so I have decided to name the new store Wag Swag.  It will take me a long time to get it up and running, but I will get it done eventually.

I have been working on making some dog collars, and new blankets out of faux fur and minky  I also have drawn out a dog bone shaped blanket, but I have yet to get time to make one.  I have been working on a tutorial for making your own dog bed, and I will get it posted once I get a chance to finish it.  It is hard to find time to get everything done.  Spring has come early this year, and my yard is in need of some serious attention.

I have also been hand dying some hemp webbing for collars, and I am nearly ready to start putting prints on them and making those into collars.  Where does time go?  Kyah and I did a 5k this past Saturday to raise money for Animal Rescue centers.  I encourage everyone to download a free App called Walk for Dogs.  When you walk your own dog, the site donates money per mile to a local animal shelter or rescue that you choose!!  Such a great cause, for FREE….. and you get some exercise in the process!
