You know what’s great about Labor Day weekends? You get a four-day work week! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. Do you ever feel like the days just pass you by? With that being said, it’s time for this week’s blog post! Again, how is it THURSDAY?! Every week I try to come up with a topic that is not only interesting, but brings a new perspective. Things that I would want to read. As I’ve looked through the last 10 blog posts I’ve written (!!!), I realized I haven’t really shown you exactly what type of products Sacco Studios sells. Of course, you can click “Shop” on my website and find out, but I’d like to take a moment and showcase one of my favorite (and popular) products: the custom pet illustration. I love these because they are unique, personal, and you get some control of how they will…

Whenever you move to a new place, it’s a chance to discover the local culture. Exploring restaurants, museums, and all the fun options your city has to offer starts to form on your list of favorites. The ones you keep coming back to, because you know it will always be a good time. It has only been a few months, but we are slowly adding to our list. After doing some research on things to do (besides Disney), I found a winery that delivers on atmosphere, taste, and hipster approval. Initially, we imagined the winery as a tiny little tasting room that believed you could grow grapes in Florida. However, as soon as we walked in, we knew it was a gem. Quantum Leap Winery has a simple, modern facade, with large white letters spelling out their name. There is a spacious outdoor patio, which I can imagine gets crowded…

Hello again! Welcome back to our monthly feature of amazing gifts for dog lovers! This month I’ll be featuring one of the more popular breeds, the French Bulldog, or as most people call them, the Frenchie. Their flat noses, wrinkly jowls, expressive eyes, and rounded ears melt our hearts. They are known to be social, friendly, affectionate, and perfect for living in smaller spaces. A lot of people get them confused with the Boston Terrier, as they are very similar. However, they tend to be shorter, have wider faces, and a more variety of fur patterns. Here are 8 great gifts that will sure to delight the  Frenchie lover in your life. Pardon My French Doormat. Click here to order. From Etsy. The perfect way to greet visitors! $44.00 2.  White French Bulldog earrings. Click here to order. From Doodleworm on Etsy. A fashion statement that goes with any outfit. $12.00…

It’s been a little over two months since we’ve moved to Florida. From pine trees to palm trees, from being able to drive 3 hours and be in another state to driving 3 hours and landing in Miami. While we have been adjusting to our new environment and exploring the local scene, Gant is doing his best figure out his daily routine. Like most dogs, he is a creature of habit, and likes schedules. I have read it can take up to a year for a dog to feel comfortable in a new home. There has been a lot of changes, from a 3 bedroom apartment on a boarding school campus to a house on a suburban neighborhood. From acres of land to run around on to a fenced in yard with a small area of grass. It is different, but there are many things our neighborhood has to offer,…

After I finish a blog post and hit submit, I excitedly tell my husband it’s up on my website and ready to read. Once he finished reading my previous post, 10 Things I’ve Learned From My Dog, where wrote about the many life lessons Gant has taught me over the past four years, he told me how much he loved what I wrote. While he is incredibly supportive and truly enjoys reading all of my posts, he said a lot of the lessons reasonated with him. Then, he came up with a great idea: Talk about how our dog taught US about our marriage, our partnership, and how we have evolved as a couple. As we all know, Dogs are pretty magical creatures. They do so much more than be your pet; they bring you and your loved ones together. While my husband and I have certainly gone through a…

A couple of weeks ago, I was at the vet (my dog had an ear infection, but he’s fine!), waiting for my appointment, and I took a few minutes to observe the different dogs and their owners, anxiously looking for their names to be called.  There was a woman who had a tiny Yorkie, telling me he was suffering from epilepsy, and this was their weekly visit; two older Beagles were getting weighed; a beautiful Husky was curiously sniffing the dog food in the display shelves; and a sweet little Frenchie was there for an annual checkup. While it is obvious that there are a lot of devoted dog lovers out there, it was really apparent at the Vet. All of us were making sure our furry family members got the best treatment possible. We would do anything for them. In honor of the devoted dog owners, each month I…

One of the most important things a small business owner needs, especially one that has to do a lot of designing, printing, assembling, mailing, is an office. It needs to be functional so you can stay organized and easily get anything you need within reach. That’s why when we first moved into our home, it was one of the first things I started designing. In my old office, it was way too small, and had no place for all of my supplies. The tiny closet held all my clothes, as the bedroom could only fit my husband’s wardrobe. All of my shipping materials were stored in the basement, so I would have to schlep down there everytime I shipped an order. During the busy seasons, I brought up a bunch of materials so I could easily have them on hand. However, they just sat there, leaning against my desk. I…
