six months...

* This is going to be a bit of a sad post. I already have tears in my eyes....

A little over six months ago, I found out that my best pal of eight years didn't have much longer to live. Humbert was a part of my identity...For heaven's sake, I drug the 120 pound beast with me everywhere, and he never complained a bit. I was always afraid of him leaving me, and I didn't know how I would ever be able to take it...

* and that is how Unconventional Ida began*

I decided to pour my whole heart, and all of my sadness into creating each and every one of my characters. I couldn't just sit on the couch and cry...I needed to create something memorable...for such a wonderful friend.

For the first two weeks of Unconventional Ida, I was blessed enough to have him with me, under my desk and by my feet, while I worked...

*I treasured every moment*

He is still comes with me everyday to the post office, thanks to another lovely etsian- Off The Beaten Path. She was kind enough to make me this custom Humbert tote...

I'd like to thank everyone that has supported my shop...
I am truly honored, and so very thankful.

* I miss you Boog*

That was very sweet of the seller to make and give that bag to you. Your puppy was gorgous. (I say puppy, because I dont think dogs ever really grow up :)

Humbert had the best human he could hope for. Wherever we go after our time here, Humbert's there remembering you as fondly as you remember him.

I feel you on the part where you started your business from him. I started mine after my Gma died.

Rest in peace Dear Humbert. <3
