I own a little doggie daycare and some of you may remember the dog bags I gave to clients last year.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=142326.msg1399415#msg1399415

This year I decided to do etched cookie jars with each dog's name on them (all I can say is this project totally justified buying the Klic N Kut!!!!!) 

In the cookie jar was a homemade dog cookie mix with recipe, cookie cutters, a silk screened apron, a squeaky snowman toy, cinnamon sugared pecans and a sewn bandanna.  In addition each client got a bottle of wine with their dogs picture on it and the label on the wine this year said, "Fido's 2007 Private Reserve Pinot More".  I am FINALLY finished and the last 10 presents go out tomorrow. 

Maybe now I can decorate my tree and do some shopping!

The whole package:

Those are so fantastic!!  I looked at the goody bags you made last year - how did the clients respond to them?  I am sure they were beyond thrilled.  Especially since you did great gifts again this year.  Wink

The cookie jar turned out amazing - great job!  I hope all the families absolutely love them.  And congrats on your growing business - 83 this year.  Wow!!

now with 2 sidekick dogs!!

Congrats on how well the business is doing!!!  Every time you post something, I get so jealous that you're too far to be Mayadog's walker!!  I'm sure you clients will LOVE these gifts (the people too).

Everything I know about sewing I learned in suture class.

Thanks so much guys!  The first 10 were fun to do then after that....... Roll Eyes

Seriously, I could never have done it without my Klic N Kut - if you are ever in the market for an electronic cutter I can't recommend it highly enough! Wow I sound like a commerical  Wink

Here is a cute video of one of my clients making the cookies - I have the best clients in the world!


Thanks again for all of your nice comments!

Great idea!  They turned out great.  At first I wondered about the wine bottles - were they for the dogs - maybe some liver flavoured sauce for their food or something Cheesy
