Creative Touches!

Shadow's family wanted a hose showering the name.
I suggested adding a flower on the other side. 
One of the best part about making urns is working with the clients on the customization! Not only do I get to hear great stories about their pet, but they help me come up with fun and creative ways to remember them.
Vinny's mom wanted to incorporate sunshine, so I put a sunrise on one side and a sunset on the other. 
Each urn is made so special by these personal touches. They can be adding something simple on the back or having flowers carved on the sides, whatever you wish and whatever helps you remember your beloved pet!
Kiona loved to swim and eat Dandelions, so we added waves around the bottom and top, and Dandelions on each side!

Sometimes telling me a simple story like how much your pet loved the beach or to eat flowers can help take the design to new and exciting places!
Chia's mom wanted rainbows on the front! How cute do they look! 
Don't forget from now until the end of October take 10% off all custom products! This includes urns, treat jars, cake toppers, sculptures and more! All of these personal touches are included in the price! 

Jerry was named after Jerry Garcia so of course we added a Steal Your Face!

You've Got to Have Friends

When my friend Zoe got a puppy we were hopeful he would become friends with my dogs, or at least my dog Maxi. At first Maxi was jealous, people he considered his pack had gotten a new dog! But now after about 4 months they are best friends! One of the most important things in life is good friends, furry or otherwise!
Now if only we would get them some toys to play with...

Custom Made Just for You!

Sweet Bailey loved purple like her mom!

When I say custom I mean custom! Recently I made a very special urn for a very special dog, that was purple with sparkles and crystals on it!
If you are not sure if I will make something, just ask. If I can make it I will! I want you to be 100% happy with your custom product. Part of making sure your happy is making sure your art is tailor made just for you!

The Back

The back of your artwork is just as important as the front when it comes to sculpture. Lately I have been lucky enough to have some great quotes to incorporate into some of the urns.
The back of the urn is a great place to add a longer quote! Remember all urns are 100% custom, if you have a quote in mind let me know and I will find a place to put it!

The back of the urn can also be a great place for a picture or a logo that represents your pet!

Road Trip!

There is a nugget shark in the back seat!

Last weekend I took a road trip with my dogs! As always they were gentlemen in the car and very good at the rental house. They love to travel with their pack and are always up for adventure! What about you and your pets do they like to travel?

He loves to sleep on the arm rest!

More Color!

So beautiful!

I am loving the changes I made for 2014 so far! By adding more color to the urns and treat jars the animals and letter pop and look bright and beautiful!

Parker has a great sense of style!

No matter what the animal is they all look amazing with the brighter colors! I can't wait to see how they continue to turn out!

Pickles the pig! Too cute!

7 year Adopt-a-versary!

This past Saturday was my dog Shippo's 7 year adopt-a-versary! Its hard to believe 7 years had already past! He is the first dog my husband and I have ever owned together! He came to us scared and abused  but over time he learned to trust us and turned into a great dog! He is often grumpy but is good hearted and loves nothing more than nuggets and a warm sunbeam! Here is to many more years of happiness and nuggets!

Sick as a Dog!

Shippo cares about my well being, but he cares more about a nice sun beam!

Being sick is never fun! When you work from home and you take a sick day it is especially guilt inducing because can't get a way from the fact that work isn't happening! Everytime I walk past my studio I cringe at all I am not doing!
The good part about sick days is catching up on old tv shows, ice cream for dinner, and hanging out with my handsome dogs. I have to say I do have the cutest nurses!

Maxi says "Mommy I know your sick but thats no excuse not to walk me!"
