Camera Strap Thingy

Thanks to my friend Stephanie over at Addie Mae's Closet , I have a potential new product. It's not pet-related but whatever.

See what you think.

This is my ugly camera strap BEFORE...

and this is AFTER...

Sorry about the shadows.

So what do you think? It's a slipcover that just slides over the strap and it also helps pad it so it doesn't rub your shoulder.

Obviously, if I decide to sell these I'm going to need a better name than "Camera Strap Thingy." That's where you can help. Please leave me some comments with possible snazzy names!

More Party Collars


Mardi Gras Party Collars!!

No, I don't really celebrate Mardi Gras but I know people who do and being the capitalist pig that I am I must take advantage. If I thought there was a market for Ramadan themed party collars you'd better believe I'd be selling those too.

If you're interested in one, check out my Etsy shop at

Ribbons and Bows

Amber and I did our first craft show yesterday. It was so fun! I sold some things and got some custom orders that I will work on this week. The best part was meeting all the people...the other vendors were so friendly and the customers were great! I loved finding out what kind of dogs everyone had. There's somthin' special about dog people...

Here's a few pics of our booth.

This is a close up of Amber's jewelry, Nola Mae.

This is a shot of the whole booth and much to her dismay, that's Amber in the background!

Some Answers to Good Questions

It has been brought to my attention that my collars and pillows are kind of girly. This is because all three of my dogs are girls and both of my children are girls and I am a girl. (Poor Wes is SO outnumbered!) I forget that some people have boys. So, I will be on the lookout for some macho, manly type fabric. Camouflage, maybe?!

Also, I am not able at this time to personalize the collars. This is because they are adjustable and the collar must slide smoothly in the adjuster and also it is not possible to center the monogramming on the collar since you can change the size as needed. I am puzzling that one over and hopefully sometime in the future I'll be able to offer a different style of collar that can be monogrammed.

Questions are good! Let me know if you have any more and I'll do my best to answer them.
