In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support.
You guys know by now that I’m a total dog mama. I used to be a cat person, too, until moving in with the boy, who is allergic. Needless to say, I love dogs and cats. And since May is National Pet Month, this month’s charity is the Austin Humane Society. I chose to go with my local branch, because hey, local is good. Plus they are Austin’s oldest no-kill shelter. I used to volunteer as a cat socializer (yes, that’s a thing!) there when I still lived down south in Austin proper. AHS has been around for over 50 years, and in that time has helped countless cats and dogs find new, loving homes. If you are an animal lover like me, you can support the cause by a direct donation on the their site, or by shopping in either of my shops (screen printing or digital) this month.
At the beginning of this month $15 was donated to the April shop charity – thank you!

She’s been super cuddly lately, and seems healthier & happier since we switched dog food brands. This month’s round-up is inspired by her, and I’m eyeing several of these pieces with her in mind. Edited to add: I just found out today is also National Dog Day – how appropriate! Dog Days of Summer by Dragonflight Dreams Sand Washed Turquoise Native… Miasclosetshop […]
1. So the evening of Christmas Day saw us take a trip to the emergency room because Ian was having severe pain in his ear and jaw – meds weren’t helping and it was getting steadily worse. This is the guy who doesn’t really like to go the doctor, so the fact that he opted for the ER when the urgent care center was closed told me it was pretty bad. But they couldn’t figure out what it was. They couldn’t find evidence of an infection or anything, but they gave him a generic prescription for antibiotics and told […]
