Newsletter 3rd October 2014
Pets are brilliant, which is why we were eggcited to launch Omlet’s first Peinture Pet Competition last month. Your challenge was to create a portrait of your much-loved pet, in any media, for a chance to win a fantastic prize. Well, let’s just say you did not disappoint!
Not that we weren’t eggspecting great things, but your creations had us gob smacked. Paintings so realistic they looked like photos, detailed portraits styled with sticky tape and characters so carefully cross-stitched they had us cross-eyed. We were thrilled to have such a marvellous response so thank you to everyone that entered.
Congratulations to our winner Sue Saunders. Her needle-felted model of Milo the labradoodle is realistic (it really does leave nothing to the imagination) and full of character. Her creativity has earned her a £100 Omlet voucher, which she is going to use towards upgrading her Eglu Go to a Go UP. Omlet will be donating £100 to Sue’s chosen charity, The Doodle Trust. They rescue oodles of labradoodles and poodles and she has been involved as a homechecker for them.
There were two other entries that really stood out to us. Dawn Whiteman’s beautiful trio of knitted hens, complete in shredded paper nest are so cute and colourful they’re now permanent residents of Omlet HQ, and Jazzy Price’s cracking caricature of her favourite chicken Toffee is fantastic. Dawn and Jazzy will be receiving Omlet goody bags shortly.
These are some of the other Peinture Pet entries we received. Thanks again to everyone that entered, and to all those beautiful pets that inspired your artwork!
Have a happy weekend,
Treat your Favourite Pet!
Country Green Fabric Pet Carrier – Perfect for taking your pet dog with you wherever you go. The padded interior makes it comfy cosy for pets, and the solid, anti slip base with removable padded cushion is a fantastic feature. Other features include a collar clip attachment, detachable water bowl and removable shoulder strap.
Jungle Print Cat Collar – Is your cat king or queen or the jungle? Then treat it to an accessory that will show all the other moggies who’s the boss! Not only does this jungle print collar look fabulous, but it will make your feline stand out from the crowd pawfectly! This collar is fully adjustable and has quick release safety buckles.
Manna Pro Chicken Toy – Fill this toy with corn, feed or a treat mix and watch your chickens have fun chasing the ball around the garden. As the ball moves, small quantities of the treat will be released through holes on either side, which hens will love to peck at. They’ll soon learn to move the ball in order to release more treats.
