Kate Fannin, owner of Nikita7, is a local paper artist who designs cards, invitations, announcements, and corporate correspondence. Each of Kate's original designs is hand-crafted using unique papers, vintage or personal photos and various mixed media. In fact, photos of Kate's two dachshunds, Sammi & Pretzel, are featured in some of her best-selling cards! Every item is a creative expression to be personalized with words or simply enjoyed as a unique piece of art. In today's era of email and impersonal e-cards, a hand written note on a hand made card makes a memorable impression.
Nikita7 cards are sold in several Metroplex boutiques, and Kate is also happy to create custom orders. A portion of Nikita7's profits are generously donated to the DFW Dachshund Rescue. Thanks, Kate!

Lucky Dog Barkery is the kind of store a dog would build if he could. First of all, a dog would build a store with lots of toys. And food. Really good food. Raw food maybe. Some organic even. And some cat food. Got to have someone to chase. And he'd have leashes and collars, of course, for walks. Beds by the bundle. Tons of chews and treats. And a few comfy chairs that he's not supposed to sit on, but would anyway. Visit Lucky Dog Barkery at 8314 Preston Center Plaza in Dallas (southeast corner of Preston and Northwest Highway).
