Hillary works as a full time Registered Dietitian and realizing that she needed a creative outlet decided to try and host craft nights or open a crafting center where people could come and craft.
Then the 2020 pandemic hit… and then quarantine… Those ideas weren’t going to fly. that’s when she started to play around with some ideas of things that she could make and sell.
She finally settled on pet portraits, but because of the saturated market in that area along with newly starting out in the pet portrait business she decided to turn those pet portraits into earrings, keychains, pins, keychains, and badge reels.
She launched her Etsy shop in July 2020 and it has evolved during that time to the point where she now offers custom signs and pet memorial sun-catchers.
