the new news!

Well, for starters, I've finally launched my new store, Five Dog House!  Earth Walker, my first shop, had an overwhelming response right off the bat, making the front page of Etsy within the first week of being open, and steady sales during the following months.

However, Earth Walkers is a dog only shop (soon I'll expand to collars and tags) and I need a place to sell the things made for the 2 legged customers.  So, Five Dog House (the shop) was born!  As I write this, there are currently only 2 listings up but there are many more coming.  The shop will be stocked will a crazy variety of things, from necklaces to vintage wares to heirloom seeds!

In other news, here's Tiloup and Aethan trying out Aethan's "new" bed.  Perhaps it isn't new so much as it is "upcycled".  His bed was a loft style bed with a ladder going up, but in his smaller room, the bed was looming and seemed to take up so much space.  I cut the legs down, took off the side rail and transformed it into a smaller bed, but still high enough that it is more like a captain's bed.  He loves it, and it makes his room seem much, much bigger.  

That's all for today, which felt more like spring than winter...that's life on the West Coast.  From snow to rain and back again, and sooner rather than later, the flowers start to push up.  I'll admit, I've got a small pot of crocus inside to remind me of the longer days...
