Somehow between searching for a new home, welcoming a new pup to our pack, and turning one of my hobbies into a side business, I realized how long it has been since I have posted on our blog. I truly have no excuse other than – life happened.
For those that know me know that I’m constantly searching for ways to channel my creativity. Whether it be homemade paw wax, beauty products (like these goodies here, here, and here), or even these DIY shelves you can see in this post here – I love to create. So this year I opened my very own Etsy shop, Pike + Arrow.
This particular venture started earlier this year when I was taking a silversmithing class at the local arts centre and found myself enjoying each class even more than the one before. I was really drawn to the idea of working with metals (what can I say, my fella is a welder) and sitting at a work bench felt completely natural to me.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the items you’ll find in the shop:
Meet our new pup, Bandit. He is wearing a custom hand stamped Pike + Arrow pet tag.
It has been said that going to the mountains is like going home, and I couldn’t agree more. The pieces that I make are greatly inspired by the Canadian wild, mountains that we’ve summited together, and the countless trails that we’ve hiked with our pups, Otis + Bandit. I make a variety of hand stamped goods from key chains to necklaces, but surprisingly, my best selling items are custom hand stamped pet tags!
The most rewarding thing to me is seeing all of you adventurous pups out there exploring with a custom pet tag from Pike + Arrow. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for sharing your adventures with us.
