Halloween - I'm Just a Lil' Spooky



I'm very excited about my new design added to both Zazzle and CafePress for Halloween. I have also added this design to Fine Art America, where you can find halloween greeting cards in not only my designs, but many other fine artists. It's called "I'm Just a Lil' Spooky". Not only have I put over 70 dog breeds into this design, I have added into my Zazzle store a version that you can add your own photo into. If you have a good headshot of your own little goblin, it works perfectly and allows you to customize all the products with your own picture. It works best if you can crop your photo into a circle. If you can't and need help, don't hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to fit it for you.



My CafePress store carries many other products that Zazzle doesn't, so please take a look in there also. You'll find things like food containers, wall stickers, laptop skins, etc. Here are just a few from CafePress, so please jump over to take a look:

Wonderful Testimonial Letter from Dallas

I just received this wonderful letter from a lady that I shared a few emails with a while ago that went ahead and purchased a Pitbull MOM T-shirt. I asked her if I could share her letter and she agreed. She is the owner of a beautiful Pitbull named Chanel.






Renae,

This is Mila from Dallas. I don't know if you remember me, we talked a while ago about PitBull t-shirt. You even asked me to send you high resolution photo of Chanel for the cards (I hope we can still do it?)



Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for the t-shirt "PitBull MOM" that I received and liked a lot. I wore it today when took my baby to the "Dogs Rule Resort". You will not believe how many complements we got. When she was finally taken to the playground and I stayed to discuss a few things, I got so many questions about my t-shirt starting from where I got it, of course. At some point there were 4 people standing staring at my breasts writing your info down from it. I said if someone saw them looking at my chest that close, they would never guess what was going on.

That was not even all of it. After that there was a gas station, Walgreens, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus! Everybody was writing down info right from my breasts. 

When I told my husband what happened and that I never thought wearing t-shirt could bring this much noise, he said "look at you, you tall, blond, wearing cool jeans with holes and embroidery, high heels, even threw that pearl choker with the earrings in the mix, what can I say, you model it well and women want to wear that too!" ...they probably love the look with all your accessories, that makes that t-shirt that much cuter and dressier. I placed pink rhinestones on the paw prints to make it look dressier a little.

One lady asked "...and they sell it like this with the rhinestones?" I said no, that was my touch, but they look great without it, plus when you wear seat belt some of them pill off, unless they are secured in in metal settings. I just did it for a short time.
At Neiman Marcus one lady said "you don't look like someone who would be into PitBulls" when I asked her what I looked like, she said like one of those girls carrying a Pomeranian around or a Shih Tzu. I laughed and said that I was a strong breed girl, love big strong men and strong dogs.

Anyways, I think you will be getting more buyers from Dallas. I don't know when they will be jumping their computers, but I know they were pulling me today in every direction. We are going out of town next week and I am wearing it again, this time with my cool pink crystal necklace and earrings :-)

I was shocked that XL fit me fine when every piece of my clothing is M!

I am so glad I went two sizes up.

Hope you can still make Chanel a model when I send you her picture?

Remind me again, does it have to be studio made or can it be done by us?


Thank you again,


Have a great weekend, Mila

Zazzle TBA Award Today for Deck the Halls with Doggies Mousepad!

I am so excited I got another "Today's Best Award" from Zazzle. This time it's for my Deck the Halls with Doggies Christmas design. The great thing about this design is that I made it so you can upload your favorite Dog or Puppy picture right into the design.





I also made this same design for the Cat, Fish, Bird, and Horse owners.









This design makes GREAT Christmas cards. As you can see, I've made a collection where you can get matching Christmas Cards, Postage Stamps, Envelopes and Gift Tags. So upload your favorite pet photo and create custom Christmas cards featuring your favorite pet. BTW, if you have a pet that I haven't made a design for, feel free to drop me a line and ask! I'll be happy to make it for you.

Peticure


While visiting with family in Miami, I treated my sister Tanji and I to manicures and pedicures. My sister surprised me by picking a bright blue for her nails....I had always thought her to be a little more conservative, but to my delight, she chose bright blue. When we got back to Tanji's home, I was still teasing her and took her polish and painted our Red Doberman Rocky's nails the same color as hers. As we were sitting on the patio laughing, I took out my iPhone and snapped a picture of our toes! Needless to say, we found it so cute we sent it to Tanji's husband Paul's phone. We were accused us of taking Rocky's manhood away. LOL...

The more people we showed the photo to , we couldn't help but notice how people responded to it. These reactions  inspired me to turn it into an invitation.

After doing so, and loading my Peticure design into Zazzle, I made five different sizes and configurations. Each are completely customizable. You are able to put in the event, who it's for, date time, etc. I even made a matching postage stamp.





Keep it in mind for a fun bachlorette or birthday party...or just a girls day at the spa. Or if all your friends have dogs and you just want to have a day of grooming paws and toes, this is a perfect invitation for it!

Dog Grooming Salons may want to keep this invitation in mind for any special events they may have planned.

Here are some more designs from Zazzle artists using a Dogs and Day Spas theme:
