Hi and welcome to LEAPUP!
My name is Leanne Warren (aka crazy dog lady) and welcome to my world of dogs, where I’m posting about my doggie designs and Etsy shop that I set up in January 2016.
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne with my husband and two lovelies, Oscar the King Charles and Sophia the Labrador (who are my babies, my absolute world).
In my day job I own a dog walking business. I’m lucky enough to be out exercising in the fresh air, spending lots of time walking and training doggies all day, It’s my perfect job. Sophia and Oscar have lots of doggie pals and aren’t left so it’s just the perfect job and a complete and utter change from the 10 years I spent working for a large corporate firm. When I come home I draw/doodle and turn my photographs and daily inspiration into art and that’s why my shop has started!
In April 2016 I’ve also started Rose Filtered another micro venture with my husband selling our photographic prints online. In December 2016 I produced my first dog commission and started stocking my art in a new coffee house in Kewsick. In the same month I also made my first global sales to he US and Australia and so all in all 2016 turned out to be a very exciting year!
I have no idea what 2017 holds for LEAPUP but I know I’m really excited to see what’s coming and if you want to receive updates on new product ranges, discounts and giveaways then you can sign up to receive email notifications from this blog at the bottom of this page and/or follow me across social media here.

I’ll also be occasionally highlighting other makers/designers/artists to help spread the handmade word – trying to get the word out to support local artisans and businesses where items are lovingly made and not mass produced!
