My friend Erika Lindquist, avid dog lover, crafter, and author of the blog Sew DoggyStyle came up with the amazing idea to set aside July 21st as "National Craft for your Local Shelters Day". Our plan in Fresno is to get a group of crafty people together that day and make useful crafts for our area animal shelters, such as adopt me vests and bandanas. What better way to help a dog find a new forever home than by showing him off in a fancy handmade 'adopt me' accessory? When Erika told me about her idea I jumped at the chance to participate. I hope you will do the same! Let's band together and make this a huge national event. Check out Erika's Blog for more information!
I got my dogs to help me spread the word! George wasn't being very cooperative....
