Christina Michelle

is creating a network for readers of Letters to Ally, writers, and crafters.
Most of you will have found your way here from our social media presence on FacebookInstagram, and our website or blog, Letters To Ally. Ally was my nearly 16 year old Golden Retriever who I lost to cancer. She was both my best friend and inspiration.

I had so many things to say to Ally even after her passing that I started writing letters to her on our social media, blog, and in our groups. This was received very well by our followers (The Ally pack) and so Letters To Ally was born. Letters To Ally gave way to a place where I could leave behind all the unspoken words I had left for Ally, since I could no longer tell her face to face. Anyone who had lost someone or a pet, who meant so much to them, is able to relate to the letters.

Ally's journey lit a fire in me that I had long ignored working my corporate job. I knew she counted on me to help her through her battle, so I put my design skills to use after many years of forsaking them and launched Christina Michelle Designs. I sold thousands of t-shirts to help Ally survive her battle for as long as she could. I ran many campaigns on places like Teespring. Everyone loved our full color designs, so a year ago, I launched my own website and handmade shop. It had to have a name so I started with me, Christina Michelle. And I love to design and write.

It went further than me and Ally though. We had touched the heart of so many people that they asked for my help. So many other pets were sick and vet care can be expensive. I started designing and managing multiple campaigns for others.

This year, our followers asked if we'd publish some sort of book with all the Letters to Ally. I decided it wasn't a bad idea. I love to write. I have always loved to write. I would often make up short stories when I was a child. I love to draw, design, and put them all together to form short stories. So, I decided to give those Letters to Ally, short stories, and design & craft tutorials a place where I could take it to another level. There will always be a free version of Letters to Ally, but more personal letters with sensitive subject will be moved to paid tiers for $1 because of the issues we have with trolls on social media. I also adopted a little Yorkie named Osito (Little O) and he continued the journey on our social media.

This is my journey. Thanks for joining me.
