Deposit #1


It is with great pleasure I bring you this post today. As I mentioned here last month, I have started a second Etsy shop called Fire Hydrant Press. This furry little division of InkSpot Workshop exists to provide dog lovers with fun and unique paper goods featuring their own pet's silhouette(s). As a side benefit, I chose Last Chance For Animals as this year's benefactor and 15% of all Fire Hydrant Press sales get donated to this wonderful organization that helps ALL animals!

Fire Hydrant Press opened in December, 2008 and every 3 months (quarterly) I will send LCA a check. My very first check just got mailed today for the amount of $150.00 and I sure am looking forward to seeing that number quadruple over the next few months. I will keep a running tally of all donations (year to date) both on my blog and on my shop announcement.

To celebrate, I'd like to offer

FREE LUNCH for YOU and A FRIEND !!!!

Simply leave a post here telling me not only your favorite item at Fire Hydrant Press,

but what makes your dog simply THE BEST.

I will randomly select a winner on Friday, March 19 at 9:00 am

the winner will receive 2 sets of my new Spring Fling, personalized stationery.
One for you and one for a friend. You pick the dog silhouette.

The winner will also get to have their dog's picture proudly displayed right here and on my shop's banner

Good Luck! and please help spread the word about Fire Hydrant Press. I want to be able to write a check to Last Chance For Animals in the thousands, not just hundreds!!!

I love the Dog Silhouette Magnets! Unfortunatley, I don't have a dog, but I'll nominate my mom's dog BoBo. He's a King Charles Spaniel and he just has the sweetest soul :) Thanks for the great giveaway!

That's awesome news - congratulations! My favorite items in your shop Fire Hydrant Press are the personalized stationery featuring my very own Kiwi's silhouette, and the delightful Kiwi silhouette magnets you sent with the stationery. Kiwi is special because I rescued him from the Washington DC animal shelter where he was on death row. He was malnourished and sick. But lots of love (and money at the vet) turned him into one of the sweetest dogs around. He is gentle, mellow, gives kisses and high fives on demand, doesn't need to be walked on leash (yes, even here in the city), and brings me so much joy and light and laughter.

Design Your Own Dog Silhouette Gift Enclosures are adorable..my dogs are all awesome and unique in their own way..and they must be the backyard of the town because we have dogs dig to get into our yard- in fact yesterday I opened the door to find a large bulldog and weiner dog and they were all playing together- they dug a small hole to get in...strange but it happens alot even after plugging holes. I love my dogs because they are rescue dogs..one of my dogs is a 3 year breast cancer survivor and is amazing the other is 12 nope 13 years old and is as sprite as a circus dog..she looks and acts like a 4 year old. Ask me to pick a faorite and I refuse as they are just like children, unique and loveable in their own ways and make me smile when I am at my crappiest.

I know I'm looking in your OTHER shop, but I adore your Chandelier thank you card set. Love it! Love it!

I love my lab and gsp cards! That was so thoughtful and I can't wait to send them out as thank you's to everyone who came to see my sweet Marley. Thanks again, you're the best!

I adore the silhouette notecards and the adorable silhouette labels (the round ones specifically)- I'm thinking a tag line "Keep your paws off!"
I'm still loyal to Cody, my German shepherd rescue who passed away 3 years ago. I am a stalker on Rescue websites looking for just the right new rescue dog to bring home to my house of 3 boys! So, love your store, love your dogs, and looking for a dog that needs our home.

I love the "Design Your Own Dog Silhouette Notecard Set of 10". They are so sweet!!! Just like my Bulldog George. He is the best and really cute, even when he is attacking our vacuume!

I love the idea of the calling cards. Some people never have children and their dogs are their children and what a great contact card you could give to a new friend you meet at the park walking their dog as well. Unfortunely, I dont have a dog. my husband and son have really bad allergies.

Found your blog a few weeks ago and love your products! Hope to order some for Mothers day gifts. I like the design your own (1st one listed on Etsy) that says Hello. I have a boxer, first dog of my life she is the best because she is so sweet and loveable, I was so scared of dogs before we got her. Now I love all dogs! Plus she is an excellent sister to our 18mo old son.
