Getting close to the Super Bowl!

Just a few days until the big game! Can't wait! Some snacks, curled up with my family watching the game and the commercials. Will be so much fun! I didn't do laundry yesterday...was too nice outside and got some errands done while enjoying the warm weather because today the temps drop.

Warm Wednesday, Perfect for LAUNDRY!

It will be close to 60 degrees today. Nice! Great to do Laundry! Actually I like doing laundry, I think it is fun. That is a good thing because the amount of clothes my son goes through is mind boggling. I have to restart my exercise routine, since having problems with gluten, it has been hard to exercise. I have kept up with pilates and resistance training but need to get back into aerobics, it is difficult when you have bone and muscle pain but I know the more I put it off the harder it will be to start again.

Did get one vintage label cleaned up and posted. Check it at at my store.

I Won Two Awards!

One of my designs had won featured product two days in a row! I am stunned. I really did not expect it, and two days in a row. I certainly needed the boost. A little good energy to start the week.
Well this is the first design that was yesterday's featured product:

This is today's featured product:

As long as I have power today I will be working on some more designs. We have snow, sleet and freezing rain scheduled for today. Looks like freezing rain right now, early arrival since the news said this afternoon. Need some tea though, I am so achy today. Not much sleep last night...dreaded gluten. Do I get the clinical side effects of gluten I have insomnia, extreme muscle pain, fever. All from at least a week ago of accidental glutenizing. I am hoping it clears out this week. Some times it is about a month of misery but I pray that I get off easy this time!

Baby It's Cold Outside

It is cold, I know it has been colder in the past but, brrr. Took forever to warm up my car yesterday and still seemed cold inside. Now I believe we are getting snow tomorrow. I do like snow, still don't know how much but it is nice to see everything covered in a fluffy white blanket.

Brain Fog...

We all know how medicines can effect us, even natural herbal remedies, but I think we forget that food can have side effects on us as well. I know that sugar in medium to high amounts effects me adversely. I have muscle cramps, muscle pain and extreme fatigue, not normal reactions. It can last for days, weeks and brain fog has crept in. Just hard to focus. But I tend to eat more sugary items when I am stressed because at first it relaxes me, releases the tension. Then later on watch out. Do I learn from the Got to change that. Moderation!

Three New Designs
I managed 3 new designs yesterday, all available on a multitude of products at my store.

Brr, it is cold outside...Tea is a must!

I love tea! English Breakfast is my favorite with Irish Breakfast in a very close second, of course oolong, Earl Grey, Prince of Whales, etc. So I am a tea girl, green, black, red you name it! I love having a variety and a day like today (3 degrees outside at 8am) I will definitely be having quite a few cups. Since I will most likely, if I don't talk myself out of it, have to venture outside to the store.

Vintage Utensils and Moth Prints
I have been busy, a bit. Working on developing some new skills with software I have. Creating art, even digitally, gives me some strength inside, which I do lack at times. A purpose in that I can create something unique, a piece of me.
The Moth Art:
I like this one, simple and elegant.
Available on many different products at my store.

Utensil Art:
This design turned out neat.
Available on many different products at my store.

Shabby Rose and GO 49ers!

Football, artwork and chilly weather. Goes so well together! I am a Vikings fan, but since they did not make it far in the playoffs I am going with the 49ers and did they give me a scare yesterday! Biting my nails, hiding my eyes and pacing the floor but, but, they did it! 49ers are going to the Superbowl! Yippee!
Then came the 2nd game....Ravens and Patriots....YEAH RAVENS, they won!!! I think it should be a very interesting Superbowl and will root for the 49ers but do like the Ravens too, for Ray Lewis...his last game.

Vintage Pink Rose Shabby Chic Print
During the break between games I worked on a little Shabby Rose from an antique clipping. Great for Valentine's Day gifts. Check my store for all the products this design is available on, Kinder Kleider

Valentine Gifts and Ovaltine

Ovaltine is not gluten free...sadly. I loved plain chocolate Ovaltine. Pre Celiac days that is. I was thinking about how I enjoyed it, sprinkling it on vanilla ice cream and checked out the ingredients....Barley Malt....sigh. Not gluten free and they used shared equipment for their production so that ends Ovaltine for me. I never liked "malt" flavors, never liked the smell or taste of beer and not a big pasta fan. That should have been a clue that gluten was a problem. My body was telling me there was a problem but my head stayed clueless.

Red Dahlia
I thought this bag turned out sweet. Cute for Valentine's day. A red Dahlia to brighten your day! So many new products have been added to Zazzle to place artwork on that I have to go back to some of my older uploads and add them to the new items. I think it is fun, especially to see the previews and how wonderful the designs look.

Gluten, Sugar and Designs

I have to eat gluten free, my son was on a gluten free diet since noticing some signs when he was an infant but to determine if he is truely celiac I had to start gluten in his diet. It has been almost 2 months and he has been fine, great and no problem. Me, well forgetting that his plate has wheat crumbs on it and eating his carrots, licking your fingers after making a sandwich...shouldn't do that anyways....has left me all upside down and in such a brain fog. Then there is sugar....a tiny bit and I am fine but add a "normal" amount and I have muscle pain and muscle cramps like no end. I say this after having some chocolate candy. Shame on me!

Vintage Purple Motorcycle
I hope the work I have done on one motorcycle print has worked out. I uploaded it but to me nothing is ever done, at least art wise. I always find something I could have improved or done a bit different. It is hard to finally say something is finished.

This is the motorcycle print on a laptop skin. The image was offset badly when printed and blurry as anything. I did both hand and digital restoration on it. I think it would be nice as a gift for someone. I still have to make it into a poster. I think when I have a bunch ready I will purchase the series and hang them in my son's room.
Three Sledding Foxes
I also uploaded this cute vintage print of three foxes sledding on a log. How cute! This is sure one of my favorites!

Still here...

I am still working on designs, holidays sort of took over for a bit. Haven't stopped working on more designs, repairing old images, most by hand because of the damage to them. I did some good sales the past few weeks. Hope it keeps up. I created a fan page on Facebook here. Not sure how to market my stuff but that is something I am learning right now. Here are some new designs!
