Hi there! I'm Allie, the artist and designer behind Whiskers & Whimsy. I have
a background in veterinary medicine and graphic design, and this brand is the love child between those two interests. I started my business baking homemade dog treats and cakes under the name Alpine Canines shortly after my husband, dog and I moved to Colorado in 2015. The first Christmas we were in business, I wanted to sell something "Christmas-y" so I created some felt dog ornaments and they sold like crazy! I made the transition to Etsy the following year, and stopped making treats in favor of selling these ornaments. In 2018, I changed the name and branding to Whiskers and Whimsy because
I wanted to make more products that celebrate the relationship between all kinds of pets and their people.
