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.

I would get my Golden Retriever Mix done. We are not sure what Artie is mixed with, but he is adorable.

I would my standard poodle and my cat.

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.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

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.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
