Back in Business

When I started blogging, I had a nice business making collars and leads. I had started this business in 1994 and it had grown. I did not do any wholesale work; I preferred to custom make all the orders myself. Then I started to write my novel and I also started blogging. And I do some volunteer work and serve on some boards and next thing you know.. wooo-wee.

So I gave up my website custom collar business.

Well, the novel is going really well, and is even a little ahead of schedule! (Happy Dance.) This is due to my dear friend Rhonda who is helping me with organizational stuff and setting goals and things which normally mystify me. Time management is about as unattainable for me as oh, a graduate degree in Quantum Physics without the benefit of a course of study. So Rhonda has been a huge help. (She's been in publishing and in management and knows these things. How fortunate am I?)

Living without an income sucks.

So my website is back!!!! If you need a collar or if you are just curious, check out

I'm trying to do the HTML stuff myself (oh dear Lord) so some things might be a little wacky for a bit until I just give up and pay someone to do it, but I really can't do that right now because as I mentioned previously, living without an income sucks.

That's what is new in our neck of the woods!
hug your hounds


  1. Mom says she is going right over and will be ordering on the 1st when we have some money.

  2. We will be going to have a look. You can never have enough collars.

  3. Headed over to check it out!!! Woohoo!!

  4. OOOoooh, I am so sorry that being sans income is a bummer (and we understand that), but I hope that means you are desperate enough to make fancy pants, too. In March, my 3 girls SYNCHRONIZED. I had to use the washer a little more frequently than I wanted to....are you THAT desperate? :D

  5. Whoo hoo! I'm in the mood for shopping!

  6. we are bookmarking this to come back to after the wedding. Mom is so out of sorts right now she'd probably order something today then turn around order the same thing tomorrow.

  7. Had a look at your four-legged neck fashions Patience. I now know how a martindale collar works and will get Willie one for his Oct. birthday.

    Looked through your festival photos. Noticed that the last time was at Actor's Theater in Louisville they had poster up advertising the Lowertown Art Festival. We must make the drive to Paducah to check out--and see quilt museum.

  8. woohooo...barday presents made simple. We will check you out later, til then, muzzer says congratulations on being ahead of your schedule. She thinks we are behind, but she can't find the schedule.


  9. Keep writing in between the happy stitching......your personal writing trainer and BFF r

  10. Yay!! Welcome back!! You were greatly missed, my dear...

  11. Yay! I have absolutely no way to justify new collars now that I'm downsizing before a move, but if you haven't allready hurry to check it out! They totally have the WriggleButt's seal of approval!

    Ane ;)

  12. Tara says she needs sock monkey panties....

  13. My kids are not really collar wearers, but I have to say I some tempting wares. I love the book. I go on genre jags in my reading and now it's dog fiction. Thanks for stopping in to see me. I am always tickled when I see your name. Your husband does have a style, it is amazing! His work is so beautiful. I'm thinking prosperous thoughts for you. You should see results any day now!

  14. Patience

  15. and her Mom said,
    Your collars are beautiful. You are very talented.

  16. Hi there!
    Just read about your collars on the WriggleButts blog - now we are coming to check them out! What a nice blog you have too!
    Love Clover xo

  17. Woot! Sirius needs a new collar! He is much rougher on them than the girls (probably because when Darren runs with him, he has a prong collar on).

  18. We be off to look too, me nearly be too big for my collar now.

  19. We'll try to convince mom to order at least one of us something!!
