"Dogs leave pawprints on our hearts."
A life-changing moment. We've all had them, right?
Let me tell you a story about one of mine. I grew up without any pets...not even a goldfish was permitted into our home! About a year after I was married, my hubby (who grew up with all sorts of pets), asked me if I would consider getting a dog. I was a little hesitant...I had very few interactions with dogs and one of those wasn't all that positive...memorable, but not in a good way. My adventurous side won out and I agreed to the possibility. Back then (and I'm certainly dating myself here :)), we used the classifieds in the newspaper and Vern found a listing for an adult golden retriever who needed to be re-homed. We got a good vibe in talking to the owner on the phone and set up a time to meet with the owner and the dog. Linda, the owner, invited us into her home and got us settled in the living room before bringing in the dog. When the dog, who was an absolutely gorgeous golden retriever, walked into the room, he immediately came over to me and laid his head down on my knee. That, my friends, was one of those life-changing moments for me. I was totally charmed and instantly in love with him. Dusty came home with us that night...he was a model citizen and a huge part of our lives until he passed at age 10. He definitely left a pawprint on our hearts and for the majority of time in our marriage since then, we've had a dog (or two) in our home.
You know, someone once said "Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And none of them are wrong."
So today, I have something fun and different for you to make for your very best dog (or dogs). After years of creating memory art albums for occasions, holidays, travel, etc., I decided to create a project just for those amazing canine loves of your life.
Enter "The Bark Book", a lively and whimsical hand made album that will totally make you smile.
Couldn't help but smile, right? And guess what, you'll keep grinning throughout the book as you create each specially designed and themed page.
There are lots of pockets and flaps throughout the book so that you can feature both the art you create and the photos you want to display. Think of the possibilities...you could create your masterpiece for one very special dog you either had or still have, or maybe a compendium of all of the dogs you have had as part of your life, or maybe even a grandpuppy or two (like I have now).
Doesn't the picture above just say it all for some of those pups in your life???
And, speaking of treats, how fun would be it be to treat yourself to this layered, textured and whimsical Bark Book? It's a very limited edition and is available right now for pre-order. Kits are available for $119, plus shipping (within the US), and will begin shipping the week of October 21.
Your kits will come with the parts and pieces you need to build the book and pages...you'll just need your tools and a bit of craft paint. You will also receive a complete set of digital instructions to put your project together which will be emailed to you.
Your dog is the best...your dog is a star...you are not wrong. Your dog deserves an album, for sure. Keep the canine memories alive and pre-order your Bark Book kit today! Just click on the Buy Now button below and PayPal will process your order, which will ship out the week of 10/21.

From my tail wagging and sometimes bark filled studio to yours,
