As you know, Katrina is Dymond's human and she has a lovely little "gift shop website" with crafts shenhas made. It's such a lsweet way she is honori g her beautiful Dymond.

Sooo....I went shopping! The items are even prettier in person!!

I ordered to glass ornaments ro keep out year round. Everything was well packaged. I wanted to video Myrtle and Frankie "helping" me open the box...didn't go well. Frankie was so excited he tried to unwrap the bubble wrap without my help and broke his ornament! I'm still able to jang it though. As it turns out, each ornament had the CUTEST little trinket I side...a tiny clothes pin with a "bo e" attached. Guess Frankie was trying to get at the bone.

Katrina made a @ovely tile honoring my Happyy Hannah. She's a very, very nice human!

No video, but a couple of pictures of her great craft.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
