Ricki Stardust

When Audrey emailed me about painting their Wheaten, Ricki, I was ecstatic. Why? Because David Bowie was their inspiration. Ricki was described to me as an excited girl, full of nervous energry...always bouncing around with her huge personality. They described her as a David Bowie fan girl, recovering from years on the groupie bandwagon. A little crazy, a little shell shocked, a lot of fun. With this in mind, Ricki Stardust was born.

It's been busy over here at Pennys & Stamps with an exciting collaboration in the works! I've recently completed a new portrait of the beautiful and coy Chelsea the Dachshund, a week before her wedding to Hudson.  

That's right. Wedding. A dog wedding.

Danielle from Danfredo Photography and Sara from Confetti and Co. built an amazing team of vendors to style the event, and Pennys & Stamps provided watercolours of the happy couple and their guests. I'm so excited to share images of the event, which will be unveiled next week. Until then, I wanted to share the portrait I created of the beautiful Chelsea and let  you know to follow the hashtag #hudsonloveschelsea to get a sneak peek of the epic event.

Pennys & Stamps x Pupcakes Holiday Ornament Collaboration

In our home, we adore our pets. We also adore the everything about the Holidays; christmas music, decorations, the whole nine yards. In honor of our Goldendoodle, Stamps, and our cat, Penny, I've created a new custom product to help include them in the Holiday spirit. In collaboration with my amazing friend Jackie from Pupcakes, Bits and Pieces I am now offering custom painted Holiday ornaments! 

Custom Holiday ornaments are available for commission in my shop  and through the Pupcakes, Bits & Pieces store. Each ornament is carefully hand painted with a portrait of your pet surrounded by a festive wreath. Every ornament is painted on a 4" round, locally sourced wood slice and completed with a twine hanger. 

So how do you get your own? Easy! Place an order through either store and send me a photo of your pet. Within a week you will be smiling while you hang your own custom ornament on your tree.   


Once you've started your Holiday celebrations with a custom ornament, check out the Pupcakes, Bits and Pieces store for amazing organic Holiday treats your cats and dogs will love. Don't forget to consider the Pupcakes, Bits & Pieces and Pennys & Stamps Gift Basket as a present for you favorite pets!
