Ends TONIGHT! 50% Off Cards, Thank You Cards & Business Cards

CORRECTION! This Zazzle sale ends tonight 12/30/10 at 11:59pm PT. 


Hi! Hope you all made it through the holidays relatively (pun intended) unscathed! 

If you still have two nickels to rub together, Zazzle is having their year end sale: 50% off note cards, thank you cards (which are handy about now) & business cards: My pre-made cards, or I can help you design some. You can customize the cards with any message you'd like, or I could do it for you at no charge. 



Discount applies to all Zazzle sellers, so if you don't see what you like at my store, search for what you'd like from other Zazzle shops at the same 50% off. 

If you start from my Zazzle shop at http://www.zazzle.com/bohopets*, I'll earn a small referral regardless of where (within Zazzle) you buy, which costs you nothing extra, but helps me with my animal charities. Every little bit helps, as we all know. 

Be sure to use code: ZAZZLEAC 
It expires at 11:59m PT December 31st, 2010. December 30th!

I'll be adding more items too. 

It's almost New Year's Eve... I've got my pink champagne in the fridge. 
I don't know about you, but I'm ready to put 2010 to bed!

Tuesday Kitty Treat

I just finished my latest cat portrait, Smokey. Smokey's mom, Tess, is one of those anipal angels you may know on Twitter as @smokey8. It took me a while but I finally captured Smokey's smug, knowing expression. He's hilarious.

I'll be creating some items featuring Smokey in my Zazzle and Cafe Press shops this week.

If you'd like a digital portrait of your own pet, or as a gift for another animal lover, email me at info [at] bohopets.com. 50% of my profits go to animal charities.

New Portrait - and Ornaments!

I just finished a new portrait of "Kisha," a beautiful Chihuahua mix, sisfur to "Demi." Their mama is popular pet artist Joan Brienza Nardozzi (@zaziart).

I was honored and excited when Joan asked me to make portraits of her prized pooches, as she's one of my favorite animal artists. That she loves them, peaks me out!! Thank you, Joan! See Kisha's portrait under the Portraits tab above.

My collection of ornaments is also growing, and since Joan asked, I created both red and white Kisha ornaments today, which you can see, below. 

They're $12.95 each and 50% of my profit goes to animal charities. Shipping on all Zazzle (mine and all others') products is still free to US on orders of $35+ through Dec. 8 at 11:59pm PT. Use coupon code: CARDFREESHIP.  Order at www.Zazzle.com/bohopets*.

Holiday Hop for Pets Giveaway!



Thank you for joining Boho Pets for the Holiday Hop for Pets Giveway. This giveaway contest begins at 12:01am on Thursday November 18th and will end on Thursday, November 25th. The winner will be chosen via www.random.org

I have several other blogs participating in this event, as well: www.cokiethecat.com, www.thepawedsquad.com and www.anipalphotohunt.com. Stop by each of them and all of the other participants' blogs - there are so many in this blog hop, your odds are good to win something!

Self-Portrait 1990's

My name is Kristin and I specialize in digital hand/mouse drawn pet portraits, and other products and gifts I create from those portraits. I live in Hollywood, California with my cat, Cokie, and his dad, Him. I just began this endeavor this summer, so my website is still in its infancy, but I'm adding products every week. I love animals and creating art that captures their unique personalities, and I especially love how happy it makes their humans! I also give 50% of my profits to animal charities.


As part of the Holiday Hop for Pets, I am giving away one custom pet portrait. The winner will email me several photographs of the animal I'll be drawing, and describe to me the pet's personality. I will create a digital portrait, portraying their pet in my own style. I will ship a high quality print of the portrait, suitable for framing, to the winner. At that point, if they desire other products or gifts featuring the image, I can create those and they may be purchased separately. Browse this blog for portrait samples and product/gift ideas.


TO BUY:  If you'd like to purchase a pet portrait, see the Order a Portrait tab at the top of this page. Portraits are $40.00 U.S. plus actual shipping cost and sales tax, if applicable. Pre-made items may be purchased at www.zazzle.com/bohopets* and www.cafepress.com/bohopets.

WIN IT!
The winner of this giveaway will receive one high quality print created from a hand/mouse drawn digital portrait. There will be one winner chosen by www.random.org. All ages and geographical locations are eligible! See instructions, below.

Day of the Dead

I realize the Day of the Dead really has nothing to do with Boho Pets, but I'm going to slip this in here, anyway, as this is my only art site.
I've begun creating some Dia de los Muertos products, including this magnet featuring my digital portrait, "Reynalda" - my tribute to Pancho Villa's daughter.

The 2 1/4" round magnets are $3.60 plus shipping - and tax, in California -  and you can customize them to add text "DAY OF THE DEAD" etc., or change the size or shape.

50% of my profits go to animal charities.

A Less Adoptable Pet Portrait

As part of BlogPaws.com's "Be The Change for Pets", I took part in "Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week." I chose Boomer, a 5 year old male long-hair black tabby who was wearing out his welcome at the Los Angeles East Valley Animal Shelter.

In an effort to get him a little more notoriety, I drew a digital portrait of him made it my cat, @cokiethecat's, Twitter profile for a week and posted this image on Cokie's blog, on the Anipal Photo Hunt, on Facebook, etc. 

 Please help us find a forever home for Boomer the Cat!
Boomer the Cheshire Cat
UPDATE: 
Boomer has been adopted and saved from euthanasia!
