|boring old rusted tags on their old collars|
I decided on a couple tags from Critter Bling on Etsy. In case you haven't checked it out, Etsy is amazing for pet products and other handmade/personalized items. Remember our Etsy Halloween collars? Every shop owner I have worked with on Etsy has been so dedicated to their craft, pleasant to communicate with and passionate about their product. This shop was no exception. I sent her a long drawn-out explanation of what I wanted which was really a combo of several different tags she had listed, but without any further questions, she understood exactly what I wanted! About a week later, for just 11 bucks each, I had my awesome new tags!
|Can you guess which is Kaya's and which is Norman's?|
|I love their names in the circles, she stamped the letters and circles all separately by hand!|
I had to go with nu-gold(red brass) for Kaya because I love this metal with her eyes and Norman's is a nice nickle silver. I even loved the packaging which included a cute tin, tissue paper, tiny baggies for each tag and even separators so the split rings wouldn't rub on the tags. She also included 2 stainless steel split rings with each tag so I no longer have to worry about that damn rust on my tags and collars!
|I spent about an hour scrubbing the rust off the D-rings!|
And of course we had to head to the park for a photo shoot! Getting the dogs to stay put was easy, but getting the tags to stay put in the breeze was not something I anticipated...
I love these tags so much, if I ever get around to buying Kaya and Norman their leather collars, I might just order the same ones so I don't have to worry about switching the tags between the collars.
Do your pups have special tags or do they keep it simple?
|The all important bloopers ;-)|
Stay tuned because I also have a tag for Gina coming soon and another set of super fun custom tags for Kaya and Norman!
