Original Acrylic Dog Art


Original Acrylic Dog Art, etc.

BulldogsbySashaLynn's Shop Announcement

Bulldogs have been a passion of mine for about six or seven years now. It all started when my sister Allegra got a Bulldog. My entire family including myself fell in love with this perfect little dog despite her special traits: smash-faced, chubby, stinky, and loud at night due to snoring. As part of my graduation from college my mom and dad bought me a puppy, my six year old English Bulldog named Bronte, and I continue to fall in love with Bulldogs each time I see her. I find Bulldogs to be fascinating and hilarious and they have become my inspiration for the unique handmade art that I offer in my shop.

Comment from Customer and Says,
~ AMAZING! This piece of art was more stunning in person than I could have Ever imagined. Great seller. Easy Transaction, great communication, Shipped in well protected material & more importantly.....Sent & received QUICK! A great experience with this seller and cannot wait to do business with again. Thanks and A++++. What a great addition to Etsy!


I love art and have the most respect for folks who have the gift and training. I love how each dog is different as they are in person, with each his/her unique personality. This store is fun, magnificent and one that any pet lover would love.

(there is happy, sad, hard working story behind every handmade creator)

Know Your RV Weight

Know your RV weights....

GVWR - Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
This is the maximum total weight the vehicle and its contents or trailer and its contents is allowed to weigh according to the design specifications of the manufacturer. Don't go over the GVWR!

GCWR - Gross Combined Weight Rating
This is the maximum total combined weight that the vehicle and anything it is pulling is allowed to weigh according to the design specifications of the manufacturer. This rating can also be used as a gauge for what towing performance might be like. The closer you get to this rating, the worse towing performance may get, especially in windy or hilly conditions.

GAWR - Gross Axle Weight Rating
The maximum weight that can be carried by the axle, including the tire and wheel.

UVW - Unloaded Vehicle Weight
Sometimes referred to as "dry weight", this is what the vehcile or RV is supposed to weigh empty. It also usually (but not always) implies a "basic" or "standard" model...no optional equipment.

TW - Tongue Weight
This is how much weight is on the trailer tongue and is usually measured when the trailer is empty.

NCC - Net Carrying Capacity
This is how much additional (cargo) weight the vehicle or RV can carry. Be careful with this one though. The manufacturers use a simple formula...GVWR minus UVW...to come up with this one, so it doesn't include the weight of any optional equipment.

WHY? - An RV is illegally overloaded when it exceeds gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR),
             - When you slam your brakes with illegal overlead weight leads to blowouts, result to a blown out tire which is particularly dangerous while the vehicle is moving.

Weight Stations are just not for 18-wheelers folks.... Get weighed and get legal can lead up to a long life ahead of you. Also if you see an overweight RV stay beyond far from that vehicle and pray for them.

RV Communication Tips

I understand that these tips may or may not work for you. With that said, let me whine for a moment and say. We make a living from our on-line stores so communication/access is so important to us.

We did the whole 2 year contract thing, and it did not work for us, half the time we are parked for month on end with no signal but yet had a $240 bill every month no matter what. So we chucked the contracts and went pre-paid. And it so works for us.

I pay $90 a month for the Mifi and $30 a month for simple cell phone service that include 1000 messages. That's $120 a month and its a savings for us. When we are in a non-signal area for months at a time, we are able to shut our service down with no worries and we are good.

We use Verizon for our computers/kindle and we use Straight Talk for our phone service

FUN FACTS about Rod Stewart
Got The Name "Rod the Mod" In 1965 BBC Documentary On "Mod" Music: We all get our nicknames from somewhere. I won't even tell you mine. But imagine being interviewed for some corny "youth expose" and next thing you know you've been reduced to a caricature like "Joe the Plumber" (except that seemed to be a step up for that guy.)


A new store for sure but a very cool unique one at it.... OMG there are some major awesome bands on her handmade creative cards. So if you know a WHO fan, there you go, or maybe your a Punk fan - I so dare you to spoil yourself. Personally we are movie freaks and loved loved ALL the notebooks.... Woot Woot Christmas is coming!
