I'm so excited because we are the works to start a new pet line called Puppy Britches. This is my Mom's creation. Here is how it came about. Max is our first dog. He was injured in a few months ago at the vet. Just a small cut in his, let's say, in a sensitive area. Since this has never happened to us, we didn't know what to do. After we called the vet, she told us to get him a cone or so pants so he would not mess with the cut. He doesn't like the cone that much. So since my Mom was already interested in making dog clothes, she made her own sewing pattern, used an old pillowcase, and made Max some pants. Me and my sister started calling them britches and thus, Puppy Britches was born. Right now, we are trying to get some funding to help us out. Our minds are set and we are going to do this. I'm thinking about doing some custom patterns on fabric. There are so many ideas in my head right now. My creativity is flowing. Finally, something we are all can be passionate about. Plus, I don't mind going into business with my family.
Don't forget about my handmade site as well:
I am so glad that I have the opportunity to explore my creativity. It makes me happy and I wish that for everyone.
Normally, I'm not one to kiss and tell, but I feel like it today. My life hasn't been roses. I am a survivor of abuse. It effects all parts of my life. Lately, I have fallen into a depression that I am having a hard time getting out of. Sure, I do have some good or decent days, but most are just filled with anger. My only outlet is my creativity. Yet, I'm having a hard time expressing myself without all of the materials I need.
I am a self taught artist/graphic designer. My original degree is in Sociology, but if I could do it again, I would go for graphic design. I just love to sketch, draw, and make handmade things. Sometimes, I focus on shoes, flowers, or to be honest, whatever I'm thinking at the time. Most of my artwork can be found on my blog, zazzle, or my etsy shop.
The only thing now is that I want to do more. I have some great t-shirt designs that I want to silk screen, but I just don't have the funds to do it. It's tough when you are a passionate person with no money to create. Bills come first. To cover everything, I think I need more of an extra income. I have asked for loans (family and bank) and have been shooed away. The only thing I can do now is ask you, the people, for help. I know there are others out there who support the arts. If you are one of those people, donate to my cause to buy a new wide format printer and silk screen 2-color printer to continue my growth and creativity.
For some, this may sound silly. It sounds funny to me too. I not use to asking people for help. Whether you like it or hate it, I just had to ask. If you want to donate a dollar or more, hit the donate button on my blog. Otherwise, wish me luck.

My passion for creativity drives how I make money. When you find something you are passionate about, the money will just flow in. Why be miserable at a job that is not for you? Look for things that drive you everyday. For me, creativity and family is what drives me. Do a vision board, meditate, or pray? These things will lead you in the right direction. Focus on your passion. I am.
