Now I'm going to introduce the cutest Weenicorn to you. Meet Little Evans (L.E)!!! Isn't she the cutest?

You can follow @krisegirl on Instagram for more photos of L.E and her siblings. Let me tell you, they're all SO cute it's impossible to favour one over the other. In fact I had a hard time deciding which photo to work on.

If you'd like to win a free portrait of your pet as well, simply follow me on Instagram @dollgift. It doesn't matter if your furkid is here or in heaven, I'll pick a random photo from my follower list to work on next. Alternatively, you can also DM me photos of your beloved pet. If your submission is picked, I'll send you a high res digital copy of the portrait for FREE. You may keep the file, print it out to have it framed and hang on your wall or even print it onto merchandise. If you'd like for me to print it out and send to your home, printing and postage fee apply. If your submission is not selected, you can still customise a portrait of your pet.

Enjoy your weekend!~

Meet Sully!

It's Free Pet Portrait post!

Last week I mentioned that I'd pick a random pet from my Instagram follower list to work with each week, but then I thought of my dear Nono in heaven and decided I want to give a chance to pet owners who'd lost their beloved pet as well. So, to all the pet owners (whether your pet is here or in heaven), feel free to send me a clear photo of your pet. If your submission is picked, I'll send you a high res digital copy of the portrait for FREE. You may keep the file, print it out to have it framed and hang on your wall or even print it onto merchandise. If you'd like me to print it out and send to your home, printing and postage fee apply.

Today, I've chosen this super tiny and adorable kitty, Sully, to work with. Sully was born with cleft nose/lip/palate. I think that's what made him more special! Anyway, the wonderful people at Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation (UAAF) took him in to give him all the love and medical care he needed, but unfortunately he passed away too soon. Even with his brief time here, Sully's beautiful story touches the lives of many, some who'd known him merely through FB, myself included. They even have a ‪#‎smilesfromsully‬ 's day on every Thursday where a random act of kindness is carry out in honour of little Sully! You definitely want to follow their page for more amazing rescue stories and cuteness overloaded photo/video updates of the animals >> For the Love of Ruby

Photo of Sully I used. Isn't he the cutest?

Now you can start sending in photo of your beloved pet for next week's Free Pet Portrait (leave me a message on Facebook or DM me on Instagram). If your submission is not selected, you can still customise a portrait of your pet on Etsy.

Good luck!

An Animal's Love

Some people believe that pets are more than just our furry friends; they are our spiritual guides or soul companions, and they are here to guide us, to teach us important life's lessons. I couldn’t agree more. If there were no Nono, there would be no Dollgift, and you won't be seeing drawings of a little girl exploring the world with her cute doxie! I hope everyone who comes across my drawings be inspired by their sense of wonder. :)

I did not grow up in a positive or supportive environment. In fact I have a critical mother who never fails to make me doubt myself. Being an introvert, INFJ and HSP all rolled into one only make things more complicated. I don’t share work related stuffs at home because I know their negative remark is going to affect me. I love my family and I have no doubt they love and cared for me too, but sadly, things don’t always work out the way we hoped no matter how hard we try. Sometimes we just have to go against the wind and do what we feel is best for us. I won’t deny it’s a very challenging path I have chosen. But then again, I have never felt more alive in my entire life. Because of my perseverance, I was able to do the things I enjoy and support the causes I care deeply about. I know if this is my life’s purpose, I’m going to have to keep my faith and trust the universe to guide me.

I have always felt a strong connection with animals. I want to support animal rights not just by monetary means but also through my lifestyle preferences. I have been on a mostly vegetarian diet since 2006 (I said 'mostly' because I still consume fish occasionally) and I try to use cruelty-free products. Now after learning about the horrific treatments of farm animals, I want to go vegan.

I have an envelope labelled ‘Angel Charity Fund’ where I put 10 percent of each sale I make (50 percent from my DOGs collection) inside. Every now and then I come across appeal for financial aids for animal shelters/ rescue centres on social medias, or whichever emergency cases I feel called to help, this is where the fund goes. I also like to contribute my works for fundraising efforts.

Anyway, the purpose of this post is to share my career journey with you. I sincerely want to thank each and every one of you who has supported me in every little ways. Without you, I won't be able to pursue my dreams. I hope by sharing my story, you too, will be inspired to live yours.

I pray that sweet Nono from above will continue to guide me in helping more animals. ^^
