Michelle has been a dog fanatic since before she was old enough to say the word, "D-O-G-G-I-E." Her love of dogs and all creatures, combined with a passion for creating colorful, whimsical things was fueled by her parents. Her dad surprised her (& her mom) with her first little fluffy white spitz puppy and then countless furry siblings after that. Her mother's green thumb and love of all things bright and cheery imprinted on her own sense of style. Twenty-five years of experience serving small businesses as a creative director, graphic designer, and photographer provided the foundation and confidence Michelle needed to jump off into the abyss of owning her own small business. She is grateful to be able to wake up, hug her two best fuzzy kids and spend time every day inspired by beauty, color, and joy - making things by hand and sourcing others that make people smile.
Olivia, AKA "Livy", is a 10-year-old Chihuahua mix. She provides more than inspiration in our home. She also provides expert ear-cleaning services and is an alert hall monitor. She's sharp and bossy, but her thankful heart shines sweet and bright after being rescued from a life on the streets in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Emmett's biggest wish is for longer legs. But besides that, he's always happy and arguably the sexiest little sausage dog with the cleanest ears in the universe.
