Ordering for the Holidays

It's that time of year...can you believe it?!

The orders of pet portraits for Christmas gifts have been coming in, which is awesome. Just a word to anyone out there who is considering placing an order for a Holiday gift, please make your order before November 5 to ensure it is created, shipped and delivered before the Holidays. I can certainly get them done after that, but I'll add a small rush fee.

To my wonderful repeat customers and to those who are thinking about ordering, I'd like to extend an offer to you that may help you out a little this time of year. Enjoy 10% off any item, including pet portraits, in my Etsy shop. Just use the coupon code: THANKYOU10 in the checkout process.

Give the gift that will make someone else smile and hopefully cry with joy! Sounds somewhat weird of me, but when I make someone cry because of my work, I know I was successful. :)

Weiner Dog Day in Carrboro: Donation

Congrats to the winner of the item I donated to the Third Annual Weiner Dog Day on the lawn in Carrboro, on Weaver Street! It was to benefit the Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society (AHDRS). You can find out more about this organization on their site: AHDRS. The event was co-sponsored by Phydeaux pet shop. Unfortunately, I could not attend the event, but I'd like to check out this Weaver Street Market situation sometime soon, seems like a good time!

Second Chance Pet Adoptions Furry 5k

Amy's Creative Corner will be attending the first annual Second Chance Pet Adoptions Furry 5K Run & 2K Walk, to be held Saturday, November 3rd at Fred G. Metro Park in Cary as a vendor!

The run is to benefit Second Chance Pet Adoptions. This awesome organization helps find loving homes for abandoned or stray dogs and cats. Second Chance was the first no-kill animal rescue organization in the Triangle. They have provided many services to homeless animals and have helped countless strays find loving and safe permanent homes. All of their dogs are kept in foster homes, giving the organization the chance to train and socialize each dog and better place them in a new home. The proceeds from the Furry 5K will go to to raise money for the homeless animals that Second Chance saves. In addition to the 5K, there will be a 2K dog walk, and a 1K senior dog walk.

You can sign up today to enter the 5k or make a donation. There will be a lot of other great vendors and sponsors at this event, including: Phydeauxpets, PetCo Foundation, Aussie Pet Mobile, and Care First Animal Hospital. Come out and support this great cause and get some fresh air with your little ones.

Find out more about the event by visiting the Second Chance Pet Adoptions website.
