Of course the #1 selling items are my Pee-liminator belly bands...can't get away from dog pee it seems!
I found some really FUN fleece online and it arrived last night, so I was up at the crack of dawn sewing jammies and bribing the dogs away from the warmth of the fireplace to PLEASE be good models for Mommy!
I really love this smiley hippie print and the flamingos just made me laugh.
My dear pal Chris with Sit Up 'n Beg has a bunch of my dog coats down at the Scottsdale dog show this weekend. Her collars and leads are really unique and several of the handlers at the recent Westminster dog show are using them so she is LOVING that! I'm forever indebted to her for peddling my doggie wear, as it's hard for me to travel with all the little charges I'm responsible for here at home.
I'm launching another Silver Hounds Auction this weekend to raise some much needed funds for the vet bills we've piled up this year so far. Poor Jocko, the senior that came to us via New Mexico in the fall, needed to have another 11 teeth pulled to the tune of about $1000.00 so we are in the hole deep! His previous bills were about $800 which the last auction covered. Thankfully his awesome foster mom is floating the bill until we can reimburse her.
Anyway, take a peek if you have the time and please share it. It's just in album format on my petsitting website and it's not live, but it's FREE...lol. I update it twice a day. We did well with our auction in the fall so hopefully this one will succeed too.
We're still hanging out on Etsy, but Artfire has really proven to be a better venue, and since I was able to get 10 people signed up, my membership is FREE...for life. Almost too good to be true. And they don't take a commission like Etsy does.
I have high hopes for my future as a petwear designer, I certainly am having fun with it! Gosh...wouldn't that be amazing if I've FINALLY found my calling?
If not, it's back to hairdressing! Ugh.

This was one of my first soap purchases and it's lasting forever! $4.50 gets you this sweet, almost candy-like, summery scent of fresh sweet pea blooms all wrapped up in a bar. It has small dried flower buds mixed in that act as a mild exfoliant. Wonderful winter pick me up and a sign that spring can't be too far away....
FROSTED CUPCAKE WHIPPED SHEA AND ALOE BODY CREAM from Hendrick's Hearth
Lauren is a stickler for quality ingredients and she is responsible for what I'm sure will be my newest addiction. At $6.25 for a big 8 oz jar, you can't afford NOT to try this amazing cream. Can't you just smell the buttery frosting?
She also has a line of really pure hair products that I'm dying to try.
Lauren, I will be calling you from cupcake rehab!
She makes beautiful wickless candles, bar soaps and more, all the while chasing her 4 kiddies around while her hubby is off serving in Iraq. THANK YOU for you and your family's sacrifices Angi, and for this amazing cream. I'm hooked.
If you've been shopping with me you have all these fun soaps... don't ya need a little hand crocheted "sponge" too? Are these not fabulous?
