I do love a good custom pet portrait! I wanted to create an adorable and more interesting way of capturing my dog’s personality. So I played around on my computer for a few weeks and created a colourful snazzy and fun style of pet portrait. As I don’t have a TV, I spend my evenings doing lots of different creative things and learning new skills. One of those new skills is bright and beautiful funky pet portraits.
All I need is a good clear photo, the name of your dog and what colour background colour you prefer. I charge £30 per portrait, which will be delivered to you via digital print file, size 6000 x 6000 pixels. Large enough to print out as a high quality poster. Lead time is currently running at one week. Please get in touch if you are interested. I donate 10% from each portrait to an animal charity.

Happy to tell you that my full range of designs of t shirts (and more!) are coming back online. Sadly, I had to change suppliers for my T shirts as UK shipments incur a huge import tax for European buyers. For example, in Portugal, there’s a +20% import tax, +23% VAT. My customers were very unhappy as you can imagine and asked me for a solution.
It’s such a pity, but rather than continue to brood over it I have started working with another print on demand supplier. All that work lost, but I can’t give up, it’s not in my nature (annoying sometimes!). The upside is that I am able to offer more products such as phone cases, cushions, mugs and lots lots more. Every cloud has a silver lining so they say.
This design is called ‘Lovesick’ and it’s my absolute fave!
I joined TikTok to see what all the fuss was about. I posted a few videos, got freaked out by the number of followers and comments within such a short period of time, so started deleting my videos and removing followers. ‘Crazy woman!’ I hear you cry. I guess I panicked at the thought of more communication from another platform. After cutting myself off from all social media for a while, coupled with the fact I don’t have or watch TV, I found myself at a loose end when I wanted to take a break from thinking too much. That’s where TikTok came back on the scene.
My son told me not to download it, he told me not to start scrolling, but it’s so difficult because it’s so addictive. TikTok learns what your interests are at lightning speed, so it knows how to keep you hooked. I set a limit to how much time I spend on there and have to be strict with it, because before you know it, its 1 o’clock in the morning, and I’m still sat in the same position I was, 2 hours ago.
Anyway, take a look at TikTok, there’s plenty of older women on there. I like that the caption space is limited so I am not able to waffle on with my writing there. It’s for short videos, that’s it. I’ve found some great tips and content that I wouldn’t find on YouTube, Instagram or Facebook. Far too much censoring on those platforms for my liking.
I will post videos on TikTok, some of those videos on Instagram, photos on Instagram and all of it on my blog. So, if you are tired of looking for my content, my blog is where you will find it in one place.
This t shirt is one of my husband’s favourites of mine. He loves the combo of the pink kiss with the green t shirt. You can buy it on my store, (available in lots of colours) along with many other merch with the same design. It’s just me here at FiftySister HQ. Trying to make this blog pay for itself in one way or another. I want to design more, also why I have a poster store with my digital art (ginandbird.com) but I need to re-stock my T shirt store first. Closing down the store with the other company was so easy. Two clicks and poof! It was gone….so many hours down the drain!
I have a discount code for the whole of March, use code MARCH22 at the checkout for 10% off.
