National Pet Month

April is National Pet Month! Pets have always been a huge part of my life; indeed, our pets are a part of our family. I know that is true for many of you as well.

This month I would like to help everyone focus on those special, furry members of their families. Let's all share the stories of our treasured pets and also help raise some money for pets in need.

So...A GIVEAWAY! Share your precious memories, help some furry friends, and you too can benefit. On April 30th, I will be giving away:

3 -12X12 pages to 3 lucky winners!
1 - 5X5 brag book to 1 lucky winner!
With these projects, you will be able to create beautiful prints, wall art, and books about your beloved pet(s). (Of course I am here to help you with any questions you might have during the process!)
How do you win? You have 4 (or more) chances to enter!

1) leave a comment on this post and share one of your favorite memories of a pet.
2) spread the word about this contest on your own blog - comment here with a link to your public post mentioning this contest
3) send me your email address (kristi at thedorsons dot com) and sign up for my Heritage Makers email newsletter (or if you are already on my email list, comment and let me know you would like to enter that way)
4) I will be collecting donations via paypal for Tree House Humane Society. For every five dollars you donate, you will get receive another entry in the contest.

Tree House Humane Society is a cageless, no-kill cat shelter in Chicago; they are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured and abused stray cats. I lived near them a few years back and they really do a wonderful job. Every little bit you can donate will be put to good use!

In addition to your collected donations, I will also be donating a portion of April's profits to Tree House.

I will announce the contest winners on May 1st! Good luck, everyone!


  1. OMG, enter me! Enter me! Does this mean I can enter using all 4 methods, 'cause I'm gonna be stalking you like whoa.

  2. Oh what a great contest... my favorite memory is actually when i was a kid, I had a cat that I could drag ANYWHERE, I'd dress him up in bonnets, etc. That poor cat. :)

  3. I blogged about it for you.. http://ali-konu.livejournal.com/206438.html

  4. I just sent you an email to be on your mailing list. :)

  5. I posted the contest on my LJ & FB..

    My favorite memory is when I first got my dog, Calvin. He is the first dog that is MINE, as an adult, all mine...and when we first got him, he was so tiny, he fit into the pouch of my sweatshirt. He had a bald spot, which helped to name him - while searching for names on baby name websites, we saw "Calvin," thought it was cute and clicked to see what it means - it means BALD! Of course that was it... lol

    Also, if I'm not on your mailing list, which I think I am, I wanna be! princesswindex@gmail.com
