The Ultimate Dog Lovers Valentine’s Gift… Pet Art

Woof_Models_Pet_Art.jpg

We’re forsaking a Valentine’s gift guide this year, as there’s already a cute one from yours truly, over on the animal pages of Townandcountry.co.uk, although for a last minute addition head to The Artisan Pet Deli for tasty heart-shaped treats galore.

This post is all about pet art, which is probably one of the most heartfelt gifts you could get a dog lover. While art is very much in the eye of the beholder here’s the list of who has caught ours. Some are ready-to-go of your fave breeds, whereas others are available bespoke to your actual dog. Many of the featured artists also offer greeting cards, bags, wrapping paper and more so be sure to check out their online shops.

Self Improvement | Working on My Canine-Snappin’ Skills

dog-with-camera-wallpaper.jpg

I’ve never been one to share much of my own photography on Barkarama, mainly due to the fact that I’m not very good or confident with a camera. I envy the skills of fashion and lifestyle bloggers, who get snap happy to create beautiful/stylish/inspiring content, and with such a handsome boy as Basil, my skill shortage has been frustrating the hell out of me. I was fortunate enough to receive a hand-me-down SLR from my dad but as someone who prefers to learn by doing, I couldn’t be faffed with the manual and I’ve been stuck in ‘Auto’ mode ever since.

Even as a responsible adult I still find myself getting excited about stationery, so when we got wind of a week celebrating the magic that is pretty paper, cute note cards and more, we jumped at the chance to blog about some of our pet-themed finds.

National Stationery Week (27 April to 23 May) is designed to encourage people, especially kids, to put pen to paper to write their personal correspondence and notes, rather than texting, emailing, day-dreaming and list-making on their nearest device.
