I have a confession. I love cruising Etsy, looking for all things pets. It's more than just a habit. It's kind of an obsession to be honest. I just keep going back looking for more. Just when I think I have seen the coolest thing ever, I come across something even cooler. The talent and creativity that shines through Etsy is astonishing. And when it comes to pet-related creations, for the pets themselves or for pet parents, my heart melts.
When I accidentally discovered this Etsy artist, I had to let pet lovers know about what she does. Kind of like a pet blogger's obligation or duty. I would be in the wrong if I didn't. Seeing the work she does, you'd have to agree.
I contacted Kerri of FOTOS2ART to let her know I wanted to include her work for my Holiday Gift Suggestion Guide. But I couldn't wait to do the post. Plus - The more time you have to prepare for the holidays the better. Although I think this is a totally year-round giving kind of item. And self-giving too, but of course.
What is it all about? Kerri will take a photo of your pet and transform it into this.... (Here are just a few samples. There are lots to choose from)

She is very passionate about what she does and it shows in her work. She said "I wanted to create fun and quirky pet portraits that portrayed more than just a pet's look but also their personality. So I've created characters that have a very specific style."
"My pet portraits has become very popular as a unique gift for a pet lover...you just need a snapshot of their pet. You can also add a custom tag at the bottom of the pet portrait that is featured below the pet's name. My customers come up with the funniest saying's...you can be as creative as you want! Also, some people prefer to keep it simple and have no name at all. That is fine too just mention it when placing your order."
Does your pet have a favorite toy? That can also be included in the portrait for a small additional charge. How cool is that?
The ordering process is very simple and she is able to ship worldwide from the USA. The shipping costs are calculated at time of ordering for various areas of the USA and International orders.
