So…got a few things left to get yet on your holiday list? Black Friday and Cyber Monday didn’t cover it all? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. What about for those pet-loving friends and relatives? There are oodles of products available to choose from, but I know of one that is always appreciated…and we’re giving one away to a lucky reader, too!
CindyLu’s Muse has hardly done any giveaways, and it’s not for lack of interest. We’d love to offer you great stuff – and often! We just haven’t had the opportunity for much that is worthy, aka CindyLu-approved. Last year, though, we offered this very same giveaway, and it was a HUGE hit. Just proof that we’re not biased on how much we love this idea. So this year we’re offering it again…and throwing in a couple more items, to boot!

Mini Pet Portrait Ornament
Chances are, you’ve got a favorite photo or two of your pet. What if you could turn that into a beautiful, original work of art? Becky, of Becky Sorrentino Studio, can do just that for you. She loves to work with paint mediums, and loves animals. Becky creates adorable mini pet portraits with attached ribbon that can be hung on your Christmas tree, on the wall, or even stand on a table or shelf. It’s a holiday ornament that can be on display all year ’round! She will paint one just for you, simply from a photo of your pet.

You have a chance (in fact, several entries if you like!) to win one of these ornaments. If you’re not sure what you would like on it, or would rather give it as a gift to someone whose pet you don’t have a photo of – no problem! We’ll send you a Gift Certificate for one.
Hand Painted, Hand Cut Cat 20 Note Card Set
Ever need to send a note to someone, when an email just won’t do? Ah, the lost art of letter-writing. How about a set of 20 hand painted note cards featuring four each of 5 cats, that are ideal for just about any reason you would send a special note! Unless you specify otherwise, Becky will leave the text area blank for your own personalized note to that special someone. Not only will you be sending a card, but you’ll also be gifting that person with an original painting.

Tip: Have you ever been stuck on what to give your pet’s vet for the holidays? Your vet is a very important person in your pet’s life (and yours for that matter). Veterinarians love to have special cards to send to their clients, especially for condolences. Becky has quite a few vets who order from her regularly. They tell her there is just not much available for that very purpose. Your vet will love you for these.
2012 dog calendar
Here’s a fun calendar, featuring prints of some of Becky’s hand-painted dogs – perfect for brightening up corkboards, refrigerators, office cubicles, or even framing. With a different dog each month, you can have a little extra canine fix all year long. Each month has its own sheet, you can save them afterward to use the images for decor. Oh, CindyLu wants me to mention you’ll get to have a calendar with HER in it! (Notice Miss May. Now that’s priceless! BOL)

Each of these giveaway items comes in a beautifully handcrafted box, ready for gift-giving. Original works of art, handmade in the USA, by a small business – I love lending my support to that!
