My obsession with animals began at a very young age. It all started at 2 years old with my first dog. I quickly realized dogs didn’t talk back, they love you unconditionally and never judge their human companion. Soon after came my love for art. However, it took me a few years (quite a few!) to get up the nerve to combine the two into my dream job!
I was born and raised in Western NC. I studied Fine Art at Western Piedmont Community College, then Fine Art and Graphic Design at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. However my fear of being a ‘starving artist’ held me back. I changed directions and spent 17 years working a fulfilling career in Occupational Therapy with special needs children. I experienced many of the typical bumps in life that most adults experience. However, in 2015 I experienced a life changing event of losing my father in law and nearly losing my husband in a terrible car accident. It was then I decided life was too short not to at least make an attempt to follow my passion. I combined my love for animals and art into my full time job and couldn’t be happier!
I like these tote bags!! I like seasonal fashion so needed a couple of these tote bags for grocery shopping. I did reinforce the handles with "X" stitches on my sewing machine -- don't know if that was necessary but better safe than sorry. I will get more for Valentine's and Patriotic Holidays. They are canvas coated with some type paint. Nice.
Omg this bag is much much bigger than expected. I couldn’t imagine choosing any other pattern than the tie dye . I highly recommend the tie dye it looks trendy and very beautiful . Lots of compliments with this bag , I use it for the beach mainly . Thinking about buying another one just to have as back up .
This is a very pretty tote. I used it as a gift bag for a bridal shower. The wedding party will be dressed in the color plum. The bride was thrilled with it. The color is vivid and the bag is very sturdy.
my go-to tote this season. So roomy. Very boho. Very "flower power" 60s vibe. Well made w/longish handles to hang on shoulders. Elsewhere this would cost a pretty penny.
Absolutely Love, Love, Love this bag - My 2nd bag - different design. Great multi-purpose bag.
Love this. Perfect size. Was looking for a bag to take to work daily with tablet, lunch box and various other things needed. Good quality and fit everything I need.
WOW for the first time i have found a tote bag i actually love, this bag is so beautiful and big and roomy you will love it as much as me.
This is a big bag that can hold all your books, supplies and more. Good quality! Love it :)
So cute! Bag is light but large. Perfect for carrying things back and forth to school
This bag is a perfect size. Not too big, not too small, and quality construction. I’ve already had three relatives try to take it from me.
So happy I got this!! Bigger and better than I thought.
Bought for my BF mom’s birthday she absolutely loved it
Gave it as a gift. They loved it. Very roomy.
Nice tote for just about anything.
Very cute and our granddaughter loved it!!!
