Advertising Beadwork in a Dog Magazine

Dear friends, recently another dog magazine called Just Labs has invited me to advertise in their holiday issue!

I had no idea there was a magazine dedicated to Labrador Retrievers. I do love those dogs, especially the Chocolate Labs. So, I decided to place an ad. The folks who work at the magazine were kind enough to create a basic ad for me – it is similar to ad I placed in AKC Family Dog Magazine. But this one features one of my custom-made beaded black lab pins. I received a hard copy of this magazine in the mail, and it looks fabulous. Interestingly, my ad is the only one which promotes dog jewelry or art of any kind!

I don’t usually do much advertising because I am too busy beading, but if a publication reaches out to me, I will definitely give it some thought.. Here is what I have been busy beading – a custom Salt & Pepper Miniature Schnauzer pin!

And, for those who are cat people, I have also created a white Norwegian Forest Cat pin which is also available in several different colors. These pieces were made by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. For the cat, I have also used tiny 1x4mm micro bugle beads, to bring out the cat’s hairy texture. Perhaps Catster Magazine will take notice? 😉
