Pet Portraits By Melissa Smith

Hey neighbors,

Let me tell you before you read the report from PI of Products, this is a spectacular idea for any pet lover.  I received updates through out the entire process from PI of Products.   I am amazed at how beautiful this turned out!

Today, I have a truly "Petacular" product that I have been investigating.  So, grab your magnifying glass and a folder and let's get started investigating...



  All you have to do to get started is send Melissa a picture of your pet, and preference on background color.  If you're not sure, ask Melissa and she will help you decide which would look best.  We asked her and she thought green would go well.

This is the photo we sent!

We have six dogs so it was pretty hard to choose just one,  but I decided on Lady Grace (one of my mom's Shelties).  Now, I was going to save it as a gift for my mom, but after receiving the first "update" I decided to tell her.  She really enjoyed watching the painting come to life (Melissa posts the pictures of her current projects on her blog and social media).  

The First picture of her progress.  

A little bit of information about the Pet Painter... "It all started with a department store shopping trip in 2005 where I laughed out loud after spotting a framed poster of “Major General Woof” by Massy and said to my husband, “I could paint something like that of Dacs!”, speaking of our Chihuahua mix we had just rescued at the pound. So I did! I have found that being a pet portrait artist is my true life passion, especially capturing candid moments in time, in a cherished pet’s life.
“Our pets give us unconditional love and I am proud to have found a way to honor and commemorate them. The bond between pet and owner and the profound love people have for their pets truly inspires me, and there is nothing that gives me greater joy than my client’s reactions to their completed painting!"

The second update - eyes, nose and mouth. 

Another plus to ordering a portrait of your pet is that you can help make a difference for a less fortunate pet.  10% of your order goes to a pet rescue organization of your choice!

Wow!  It's coming along really nicely!
Melissa does very detailed work.  Just look at the finished picture!  Everyone we showed it to, could tell who it was and thought it was very well done. 

And... it's done!  We LOVE it!
So, if you (or someone in your life) has a pet, head on over to the Melissa Smith Art website, and start your order!  You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with their latest news and paintings.  

Our 8x10 Pet Portrait... ready to hang on the wall!

Melissa Smith Art is going to send a 8x10 Custom Pet Portrait to 1 of of our Petacular readers!  Please share this giveaway with your friends and family!

Gee, I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats. Picking just one for a portrait is hard, but I would have to go with either Ran, my deaf hound girl, or Kyoko, my beautiful tri-color Walker girl who I adopted after she was nearly starved to death. I might have to flip a coin.

I would have a picture of Dexter my Boxer, or Charlie my Frenchie.

Zoey Monster our medium haired chihuahua
I would love to have either our Rat Terrier (named Sugar) or our Sheltie/Beagle mix (named Cinnamon) done. If lucky to win this awesome giveaway the hubby and I will have to flip a coin to see which one will be painted.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
