guinea pig meets pit bull

Even though the pit bulls are rodent hunters and enjoy a good tumble in the swamp. The house pets are introduced properly and NOT ON THE MENU. For the most part Ready wants to clean them like a puppy and Cruiser (pictured) runs when a piggie is put on the floor without supervision. . . He dosn't want to get accused of anything. . .

Comment from Custom Order Clients and New Friends:

iPhone Case:
Cannot put into words how I feel about this seller and her products. Her friendly and sincere personality shines in the quality of her products. Barbara took the time to know more about me and what I was looking for in this particular product. Once it arrived, my iPhone case was more than I had anticipated it to be! I use it everyday and love the personal touches that were put into it. You would have to take me down to get it from me! I love it for its quality and personalization. More over, I love it for the wonderful person who "made" it for me...from her heart!

Guinea Pig Portrait:
He is here!
Thank you so much. He is perfect!

Horse Portrait:
Che arrived today and I'm thrilled! I could not see how much wonderful detail it had on the photo. I think she's going to love it and I'm also happy that we're exchanging our Christmas gifts tomorrow!!

AND I love the little snowman. HE's going on my coat for tomorrow.

Thank you sooooo much! This is a very special gift.
. . . . . . . . . . . .
she loves him. She was going to wear him on her jacket that night. Then I think she wants to somehow hang him on her tree! She really liked the "actual white" on the chin and snip.

So it was a success!

Yellow Lab, Body's Portrait:
received the package and it is in being framed. The frame is seven inches square, ebony fabric which goes up two inch, and covered in glass to protect this precious piece. I love it! I will send you a photo when I get it back, which is why I have not gotten back to you. I think you are a talented lady.

Pumpkin Pin:
Wonderful, wonderful. Already got a compliment my first time wearing it!!

Guinea Pigs:
so cute guinea pig , very well made ,thanks (France)

Rottie Portrait:
Awesome work .....looks just like my dog....

Arabian Horse Pin:
Thank you for such a fast delivery of a beautiful felt pin.
We shall have to discuss a pair of cat pins in the new year if you are interested.

Corgi Portraits:
O.M.G. I am literally speechless. Even though I saw pics, I was NOT prepared for just how much these really would look like my corgi, Ein. So so soft, so so adorable, and the Nick corgi is going to be the PERFECT gift for my future father in law. Nick is his baby, and I can't think of a better gift to give him than a soft, fuzzy, miniature 3-D "portrait" of his baby.

Highly, highly recommend this seller!

Pumpkin Pin Cushion:
his is SO cool! I love it- lovely work, fast shipping, well packaged. Thanks! I don't want to put it down. :)

Personalized I Can Build a Snowman Can:
Darling Snowman Can!! Thanks for the extra carrot!! Happy Howlidays!! ^..^

needle felt dog wool coat

My first attempt at a dog coat. . . modeled by our boy but made for a female dog to protect her hairless belly.

All the needle felt decorations other than the name are to cover slits or moth holes in beautiful green felt. Goodwill wool sweater fulled in the washing machine into felt. Cut into a vest using the original neck hole. the sweater sleeves are refashioned into the belly band that velcros at the dog's back.

Stanley the needle felt and Molly the American Guinea Pig

Molly is 4 weeks old American with Satin gene (meaning 1/2 of her babies would be a American Satin if bred with a Satin male) and Stanley is a portrait of a Chicago Teddy. . .

Molly is the much anticipated replacement to Drama. My 9 yo that wouldn't even show the Judge the sex of his cavy at fair time is now planning breedings and wanting to learn more and more about genetics. . . well, atleast a herd of guinea pigs will be much less costly space wise than when my older brother plays with dairy cow genetics. . .
