Fun with Cats and Dogs
I don’t think it’s any big secret that I love my animals. If you doubt this you can view the 800+ designs about dogs on Flickr. Anyhow, while cruising through my favorite handmade sites an idea for a blog came upon me… Lovely handmade gifts for the cat and dog lover. Fun and funky items that just make me love them all the more.
