Friday Favorites -

This week  I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites. I'm quite partial to the people whom I'm about to share about because well there family and I love them much! 

First up is my fabulous mom- Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


She is my inspiration, motivator and my best friend. You may have come across her shop recently in What not to crochet....LOL! but this actually turned into a business boost. 

She has two cute little chi's whom actually get quiet cold in the winter. There not meant for cold weather so she would dress them up warm in the winter. That was the start of Posh Pooch Designs. Her idea may be strange to you if you aren't a small dog owner or lover but this is a big hit with those that are. 

She designs sweaters, hats, collar, dresses, blankets, crochet patterns and more! 
if you have a dog I highly recommend you have a look at all her creative works! If you love to crochet she has lots of free patterns and some to buy as well. 

You can find her shop on ARTFIRE

Next up is my Shelby Spivey of Public Safety Survival Bracelets

{Shelby is my hubby and I love him so!} 

Need something to get your guy  or gal! These are super popular with any one I know. He started making these to show support for his co-workers at the police station called the The Thin Blue Line Bracelet. 

The small amount of police officers (dressed in blue) standing between the criminal element and the law abiding citizenry is the standard meaning of "the thin blue line". {wikipedia}

 He has now has bracelets that support many causes from firemen, military, EMS, Cancer, USA and some are just for fun. Here are just a few. 

double thick - Support our Troops! 

For the ladies - Heart

"quote" - Our main goal is to show support for those that protect us. While Public Safety is our main focus, we also make military support bracelets, cancer support bracelets and “just for fun” bracelets. -Shelby Spivey

All items are handmade with 550 or 650 paracord that can be unraveled in an emergency giving you anywhere from 2-20' of usable rope. You can also gut the paracord and use the insides separately.

Bracelets can also be customized with your choice of color combinations. This can be done in an agencies uniform colors or your favorite sports teams colors.

He also make, keyfobs, lanyard, dog and cat collars

{$2.00 from every sale is donated to the Air Medical Memorial.} 

I hope you'll take time to visit these shops!

Have a fabulous weekend! I'll be spending mine with these two fabulous people!  :)
