a magical place called ~* At- Choo *~

For anyone who has lost a pet, you surely know the sadness that follows. I recently lost my beloved pet hedgehog of 7 years and was so fortunate to come across Elaine Seamans and her wonderful website called  At-Choo.  

Elaine is a blessing to God's creatures. She has taken her beautiful artistic talent and turned it into a business in which her proceeds go to help shelter dogs who are awaiting a new home. She is even in the process of starting her own non-profit foundation to do just that - 

 Elaine's creations are magical. They bring a sense of closure and peace to the owners who are grieving. You can find the most beautiful and unique rings, necklaces, bubble blowers, potion jars, coins with inspirational messages, and so much more. I had her make a custom pink wee house for Hedgie and the details were amazing.  You can tell that a lot of love goes into each and every piece Elaine creates. 

The world needs more people like Elaine. If you have lost a beloved pet, this website is for you. You will  
take comfort in finding that special keepsake to remember your fur baby. And even more special, you can help make a difference to animals in need with your purchase. 

I'll end with this Bible verse that has brought me some peace:
Psalms 36:6

Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals.

Missing you... :(

What started out as a pet for my son ended up being so much more.
Who would have guessed a hedgehog would bring so much joy?
 Thank you for almost 7 years of love that you gave all of us. 
God I miss you! 
 Rest in peace with the angels, sweet Hedgie.
