Thank you Zazzle for the TBA Award!

Imagine my surprise today when I started receiving comments congratulating me on my Zazzle TBA award! I was curious so I went to the Zazzle Today's Best Award page and saw that indeed my new Happy Mother's Day Yorkie in Pink Tulips was showing up in the postage stamp product! YEAH! I was thrilled to have one of my pieces show up on Zazzle's landing page.

Here's the piece they chose...would love to hear your comments on it! If you click on the design to actually go to the Zazzle page just scroll down to see the congrats I was left by people within Zazzle!

Photo Shoot with Foxy and Corky at Carmel Beach, California


Last October 2010, the AFRP held Party for the Paws, which I had donated a FREE Photo Shoot and a FREE 8"x10" portrait for their fundraising raffle. The winner of that raffle was Sheila from Monterey, CA.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sheila along with her husband Dan, their Papillon/Chihuahua mix named Foxy and their Aussie named Corky, at the Carmel Beach. Even though it was a cool windy day and the pups were a little shy, we were able to get some great shots.

After looking through the proofs, Sheila selected a particular photo and decided to use it in my Happy Pawlidays Christmas Card for her own cards this year. Sheila also selected the same photo for a Christmas Ornament, Mug, Tote Bag and Refrigerator Magnet.

After receiving all her items, I received this wonderful note from Sheila:

Dear Renae,

Got the last of our loot today, the lovely tree ornament. We also love the cards, the mugs and the magnets. And many, many thanks for the photos; you were very generous to include all the extras. It was a pleasure posing for you. Corky and Foxy are interviewing agents and publicists daily. Heaven knows where it will end.

As I mentioned when we spoke on the phone, I am very impressed with the Zazzle business model. You took our picture Monday morning, I had photos to choose from by Tuesday evening, and, unbelievably, I had the beautiful holiday cards on my doorstep by 3:30 Thursday afternoon. Wow! That is just amazing! And, it is very hard to stay away from your Zazzle store where I can get order just about ANYTHING with our happy pack photo on it and know that I will have a high-quality product in hand almost before I can say "Zazzle"!

Thanks again, Renae, and best wishes for a happy holiday season and a blessed, prosperous New Year!

Autumn Mirage - Chinese Crested




I know, I know, it's a little too early to think of Autumn. However, I started working with these colors and a photograph I took of my sister's Chinese Crested puppy named Tickles. It just evolved into a beautiful Fall design.

The design looks great on notecards as well as mugs....
