Ay Chee-Wow-Wa!

Some of you may know that I like to sew and that I operate a small business, making purses, accessories, and a few dog-related items. And when I say small business, I mean it's REALLY small. I am the sole proprietor and the sole employee--and a slightly lazy and unfocused one at that. I'm the webmaster, marketer, sales person, photographer, bookkeeper, designer and seamstress. Only my work time gets eaten up by dog walks and foster dogs and adoption fairs and kids and housework and okay, blogging, which is why my business remains a small business.

But I just had to share my exciting news today! It isn't really that big of a deal...but okay, I'll just get to it.

A few months ago, you may remember the dog treat pouches that I made and posted about here--thanks to everyone for their wonderful feedback. Using your market research input, I have been selling the treat pouches in my Etsy store, and they've been selling quite well.

Today, I got an order for one of my treat pouches, and the buyer emailed me and asked me to call her. When I called her, she told me she needed the pouch right away...for FILMING! Of course, I asked her what she was filming, and she said, "Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3"!

My treat pouch will be worn by a dog trainer in the movie! Woo hoo! I doubt it will make me famous, but I'm still quite tickled. Judging from the poster, it looks like there are some cute pups in this movie. Hmmm, I wonder if they need an almost 3-year-old dog-distracted, slightly pudgy yellow Lab as a backup character?

If you'd like to get in on this new Beverly Hills craze (!!), I just added a widget for my Etsy store on the right. Finally, I'm taking the time to do a little marketing! And I guess this means I might want to watch Beverly Hills Chihuahua 1 and 2 at some point.

That's so cool! Awesome! You and your little endeavor are famous!

They should have probably had you or your daughter to the photoshop work on the poster for the movie too!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Thanks SO much for adding that Etsy widget! It definitely makes looking at/finding your shop a lot easier! I have been dying to order a treat pouch from you for some time. I'm waiting for a little extra cash which is *hopefully* come this week! =) Congrats! That's so awesome! I'm so happy for you!

Congratulations! That's spectacular. They should definitely use Cabana. How can they turn down that beautiful face of hers?

Hooray! You're going Hollywood! That is just so cool.
