Shortly before saying good-bye to Kota I reached out to my graphic designer, Monica with Sniff Design Studios, about coming up with some fun-loving Kota inspired merchandise to sell. At this time I had no idea Kota would not be with me today. I am so glad I reached out to Monica when I did. I’m not sure it would have been on my mind today.
August 12th, the day after Kota passed, Monica sent over the design files. With the chaos in my life, things had slipped my mind. She had no idea about Kota. For me, it was something that was perfect timing. Seeing the designs Monica came up with warmed my heart and made me smile. I got teary eyed. They truly represent all things Pant the Town, and my love and memories of my best friend, Kota.
I decided to set up a store in Red Bubble. It was an easy set up which I loved. Monica did two meaningful quotes for me:
“Rescued Is My Favorite Breed” – in honor of Kota being a rescued stray.
“You Will Furever Be My Always” – just because it’s perfect.
Along with the two quotes are some Husky silhouette “seasonal” designs. I love everything about the seasons of New England, with winter being my favorite.
Here is an example on a mug and a greeting card. These make a great gift for your husky or northern breed loving friend or family member!
Here is a list of merchandise that you will find:
- T-shirts and Sweatshirts
- Fun Stickers and Magnets
- Coffee mugs (travel, too!), and Water Bottle
- Pet Bowls and Pet Mats
- Greeting Cards and Notebooks
- And More!!!
Click on one of the shopping links and please let me know if you have any question! I ordered the lightweight hoodie and the lightweight sweatshirt to give them a try and I’m in love with them! Super comfy and perfect for the cooler weather we will hopefully be getting sometime soon.
Kota will always be in my heart and she still inspires me! I miss my best girl! This is for you!
