Here's a little background from Carol:
First let me introduce myself, my name is Carol, I live in Largo, Florida, which is on the West Coast, about 15 miles North of Tampa. I moved here from South Jersey, (Wildwood area) in 1995 with my husband, who has since passed away, but I still have my dogs, there are three of them now, two 11 year old Lhasa and a 4 year old Shih-Tzu and a cat. My Grandmother who raised me taught me the love of sewing and photography and hand made crafts, and by the time I was old enough to pick up a needle or a camera she was there teaching me something. When my children were small, I always wanted them to be special and little different so I made some of there clothes and always made there dress-up outfits. I cross stitch, work with dried flowers, and love to garden and decorate my home, and bake, and do home-make crafts. What got me started on making collars and jackets for dogs, was my babies. (dogs) About 2 years ago, I was looking for new collars, I wanted something different and special and I could not find much, and what I did find had a large price tag and was not of good quality so I made them myself, then family and friends wanted some and away I went. Now here I am, at Homemade Catalog. My next step is going to be harness and leashes to match everything. And also in the plans, will be a line for the cats and some craft shows. So if you ever need something special for a holiday or a event for you dog just give me a idea, of what you have in mind, and I will do my best to make it for you.
