Featured Pet

I've decided to feature one of my pets every now and then in my blog. Today I am featuring my beloved Chihuahua TAMA.

Tama is my ultimate companion. He loves to go with me everywhere. At 3 months old I adopted him after the loss of my first Chihuahua, Sienna. Poor Tama was quarantined for 3 weeks, at the time my sister adopted a Chihuahua puppy that was quite frail. :(

He loved dressing up since puppyhood. Since he loved clothes so much he decided to chew the power cord to my sewing machine. I think he realized when he didn't recieve any new clothes for 2 weeks that he should leave the cord alone. Since then he hasn't touched it, nor has he let any of the other Chiahuhua's touch the cords.

Going to school in a purse is one of his favorite things to do. Never barks just sits in his purse throughout a class. We have done several presentations together at school for my pet apparel business, The California Chi.

Every year Tama and the rest of his pack enter PetSmart's Halloween costume contest. Tama won 3rd place in 2008, and received a $5.00 gift card.

We also take a family picture with Sanat Paws every year.

Tama is with me all the time at home. from when I go to sleep to when I get up in the morning he sticks by me. He refuses to leave my side and eat when he knows I'm sick. He's the Sweetest and most caring Chihuahua I know.

To learn more about Tama and see some more pictures check out his Dogster Page here:

Summer is Here!!!

Well Summer is finally here. Now the days grow shorter as we descend into the next season. I have been working on many new and exciting things.

There are always so many ideas in my head. Never enough time to execute them, sometimes the right resources are not to be found. I try and sketch or make notes to keep my mind clear and my ideas safe in one place.

Currently I have been working on many items. I started listing some today in my Etsy store.
I've also been trying to stock pile as many pieces as I can for craft and or pet shows.

Something amazing happened to me today. I sold 12 articles of pet apparel to one client. I've worked on 12 articles of clothing at one time for several customers recently, but I haven't sold that many to an individual in a long time.

It always feels good when you make a big sale. I find it exhilarating as well as motivating. I now want to list as many things as I can in all three of my online stores.

Here is some items from my Etsy Shop. I will be adding more through out the week.

First Post!!!

Hey Everyone,

I'm new to this blog site, so my blog may look and be a little boring for now. In the mean time you will find update here for my online stores, new items, and current projects in process.

I'm a college student majoring in Fashion Merchandising in California. I started my custom pet apparel business, The California Chi in 2001. My 4 Chihuahua's are my inspiration.

Crafting, Creating, and Designing are my favorite pass times. I'm always open to new crafts.
My experience with Art, Design, and Crafting is extensive thanks to my parents, both of which are art enthusiasts.

I enjoy custom orders. I feel my clients provide new challenges for me to overcome.
Feel free to contact me for a custom order.

Currently I'm selling Pet items for Easter.
Here are a few.

Dog Squeak Toys. -Found at my Art Fire Studio

Catnip Toys.-Found at My Etsy Shop
