Artists I Admire - Melissa at Pugnotes

Have you ever wondered who the original creator of
these colorful funny-faced dogs is? I'm talking the
FIRST artist who ever created these wonderful images?
She's Melissa at Pugnotes. She's my buddy. She has a puggy
named Emmitt aka EmmyPants who helps out in the
studio. I adore her work, and am amazed at all the new
things she thinks of. She's like an Artsy Dynamo with her
SuperPugPal Sidekick!

Melissa is one of the most creative people I've ever met -
she makes bears, doggy ornaments, books, printed cards,
pillows and just about anything you could imagine. She just opened
a new shop on Artfire so take a peek.

So, now you know. Before, you just THOUGHT you knew
where these images came from. Remember, check out Melissa,
the original pugnotes artist. Now you've got the holiday 4-1-1!

Melissa is truly amazing! I haven't figured out how she finds time to do it all! I think Emmitt may be secretly making some art while she sleeps.....lol!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday Nancy! I am so lucky to have found a new friend in you!
Happy holidays!!!!
