Etsy Store of the Week – FuzzyMug

I’m back from Chicago! It was a wonderful trip and I have lots of pictures, but that’s another post. Oh, and another post that should be up soon is my new running plan for the half marathon. Yes, I’m doing it even though I had surgery on August 16th and the half is on October 17th! And also to be posted soon is my debt confession and repayment plan. Hi, my name’s Krysta and I have too much debt. Hehe! Anyway, as you can tell I’m well rested and invigorated from the vacation, so stay tuned folks.

Anywho… this week’s Etsy Store is great for all you pet lovers out there: FuzzyMug. This Baltimore resident creates colorful graphic images of animals and can do custom orders too. And she doesn’t offer just prints, but notebooks, shirts, cards and calling cards. So you can totally show your animal love!

As always, the item I want the most: this print of a rabbit in black ink (you get to choose which color you want on almost everything!). Besides the obvious cute factor, let me tell you why: I had a stubborn old man of a black rabbit named Spaz for nine years before having to put him down last November. That rabbit put up with my sometimes too-busy-to-cuddle schedule and even endured the 3000+ mile trip to Alaska and back. He survived testicular cancer and the following castration, btw I am so sorry little man! It’s always hard putting a pet to sleep, but Spaz was very difficult for me as I had him from 15 to 24, some very important years in my life and he was there to see it all. So here’s my first choice in FuzzyMug’s Etsy shop:

So do you have a certain pet you’d like to memorialize or just show off? I can think of three dogs in particular that I’d love to have portraits of! Here’s an extremely cute example of one the custom pet portraits FuzzyMug does:

There are some of the many art prints FuzzyMug offers. But what about the other stuff I mentioned? Don’t think I forgot! These next two items are for the animal lover (or just your love!) in your life. The first is a great card idea, no matter what age or event and the second is a notebook that would make any pet lover smile.

A little bit about FuzzyMug, taken from her profile:

 I volunteer my time and design know-how to local animal shelters and I have 4 cats and 3 dogs of my own. They were my inspiration for FuzzyMug and they are often coerced (with many treats and promises of long hikes in the woods) to pose for my portrait ideas.

Now that’s a real animal lover! So let’s not only give a round of applause to FuzzyMug but go and buy some of her stuff! The pertinent links (and if you haven’t noticed, I’ve upgraded my techno-savvy by making the pictures clickable to the listing!):

And stay tuned for the updates I talked about earlier. Don’t want to keep coming back to see if I made a recent post? Sign up to the right to have posts sent directly to your email so you can read them when you have time. And don’t worry, I only post a few times a week at the most so you won’t get overloaded!
