Black Friday

Not going shopping, no, it is tree trimming time! I am filled with turkey and pie and decorating a tree sounds just fine!
Have a great weekend!

It's Snowing

Got appointments today so have to travel. Right now the roads are just coated in white.  We are not supposed to get much, maybe an inch, but you never know!  Got 5 designs cleaned up, remastered etc and uploaded.  Just have to add to products.  Don't know if I will get all of them on products today but will try.  Lots of holiday prep is on the way!

How about another bright vintage print!

Goat and Flowers
This nice vintage design needed lots of remastering to make it usable.  Turned out to be a very cute print!

Checking off the Turkey Day Countdown

We are counting the days til Thanksgiving! Almost here....yum!

Working to get the whole weeks worth of artwork done today and tomorrow.  I try and do a design a day.  So far I have two images ready, three more to go.

This design below has sold! A set of business cards with this vintage design!

Zebra Pop Art
I had to do quite a bit of work to make this vintage image usable.  I like it!

Happy Friday to all! I have been cranking out designs.  Would like to get all my holiday images done by Thanksgiving.  Christmas is just around the corner...arrgh.  I am not ready!

I have a non holiday showcase today!

Sailboat Painting
This image needed some repair but it was kind of unusable so I transformed into a painting.

One week until Turkey Day!

Turkey day, turkey day, I can't wait til Turkey Day!  It will be nice to spend the day with my family and eat turkey, watch football, eat turkey, have pie, eat turkey and of course eat turkey!  One week to go.  My son drew a turkey (cooked) on his dry erase board and put a number 8 in it yesterday to start the countdown.  I think he has inherited my artistic ability because for a 5 year old he drew a beautiful turkey!

For the one week countdown I have a Thanksgiving Day design for you to see.

Thanksgiving Greetings
Nice vintage image I restored and added an argyle background to showcase autumn's beauty, leaves!

So happy!

I am so so happy!  My son has read two books on his own so far!  Love that, had a goal by Christmas and I think we made it, early!  He has some preschool today.  He works very hard.

Today I have some angels.

Three Angels
A small bit of repair and color correction brought this vintage image to life.

Made a decision

There is no way I will be able to lose weight during the holidays.  No way.  Since my surgery taking so long to recover, a cyst bursting etc I have not been able to lose much of what I gained during that time.  I know I can but when you have pies, turkey, cakes and cookies coming up, well, that just makes things even harder.  I could try moderation but I think that is genetically impossible for me! Never worked. My goal is to maintain what I am now and then after the holidays I can get back to my regular self.  I usually gain a bit during the holidays but this year is different with my health issues causing weight gain early.  I am walking/jogging at least 5 miles most days, should help level things off.

Working on  more designs.  Hoping the holiday time takes sales up.  So far it has been going well.

Today I have something different, a cute puppy pop art painting!

Bulldog Pop Art
I love dogs, cats, birds, animals of all kinds!  I like this design too!

My son had a great day yesterday...not over yet.  Wait til he sees what tomorrow brings.....he he.  Tomorrow we have a small get together with family.  He will be thrilled to see his cousins!

I have been squeezing in artsy stuff when I can.  Got so many for Christmas together the past few days.  They will be popping up soon in my showcase.  Today I have a sweet little kitty to show.
Have a FABULOUS weekend!

Happy Birthday to my son!

Happy Birthday to you!  My son is 5 today.  Where did the time go.  He is already up and waiting for presents! Today is his day and he will have a wonderful birthday day! Off to make his birthday magical!

Mind melting...

Yesterday I said my son's birthday is three days away, no it is tomorrow.  Don't know what planet I am on!  I think I thought it was Monday yesterday. I got most of the cake topper done.  I will have it finished today.  All his presents have been wrapped and ready. 

Got a whole lot of art prepared and uploaded yesterday.  I figured if I go all out the next few weeks that I will not feel so guilty when the holiday takes over and I don't have the time to work on Zazzle, but I know I will squeeze out some art time anyways!

Holiday Candles
Another graphic that was hard to use so I transformed it into a painting.

Tick Tock..

Birthday is only 3 days away!  Still have to construct the cake topper, will try and get some done today.  I did sketch what I think might work.  I don't want to disappoint my son since I did say, sure I can put all the Angry Birds on your cake.....sigh.  I will get it to work!

I got a bunch of artwork done last night, was on a roll so I will be uploading like mad today.  Once I get into a groove I can get a lot done.  Wish I was always like that but it comes and goes.

I have a musical print today!

Blue Tuba
How about a Blue Tuba painting!

Boy only a few days till my son's birthday! He is counting down the days.  I finished making some decorations and next I have a cake topper to make. He is growing so fast.  I can't believe it will be 5 years since he was born.

Today I have a holiday design to showcase!

Birds on Holly
Nice cute vintage holiday design.  Had to do some work to make this graphic usable.  I like it!

Friday Friday

Okay, off to do some errands and appointments, have a design to upload today, did two yesterday! Found out it will take about two weeks for my back pain to go away, little every day.  Well little is little, and I mean a little each day.  Still feels horrible.  Tired of it already so I am going to pretend I am ok!

Today I have a cute painting of Art Supplies!
Took a vintage clipping and transformed it into a fun painting.

Some answers...

Well my back pain is solved at least.  A burst cyst.  Just have to wait for it to heal.  I have many more but can not take any medication because of my risk of stroke.  I am researching natural ways to help.  I had one burst a few months ago and it was painful then and it is painful with this one too!

Got three new designs uploaded yesterday.  Hurts to sit long so doing a bit at a time.  Going to get some more designs created today.  Sold some clocks yesterday!  I hope to sell more.  So many new products are being developed and set up on Zazzle that I need to go through and add past designs to them.

Today is a test design I did using a black and white image, colored and transformed into a painting!

Zinnia Painting
Nice colorful flower, I like it, hope you do too!

Ready for least virtually.

I can not stand my back, what is going on. Think I will sleep on the floor tonight. Nothing is touching the pain. Grrr...if not one thing it is another.

Got some artwork done yesterday and made a lot of sales. YEA! Going to keep at it today as I ice and heat and medicate my back.  Voting was fun, I let my son push the vote button at the end, he is so cute.

Today another Christmas design....Ho Ho Ho!

Vote Today!

Go out and vote!  I am this morning.  Even though my back is just horrendous I am still going to vote.  I have taken my son to every election since he was born.  He is excited!

Yes my back still hurts, very stiff today.  Can't sit for more than a few minutes before the pain gets too much.  Must do some more artwork today!  Sold quite a few items yesterday.  Would love that to be the norm every day!

Today I have a holiday painting.

Holiday Candle Painting

Took a very pixelated image and made it into a painting!

Oh My....

My back is out, inflamed, and painful.  I can not sit or bend.  I hate this.  I personally feel the surgery I had did something because I certainly have not had any change in symptoms since it(supposed to correct it), my weight has increased (knew would during recovery) but I can not seem to lose what I gained, strange , and back pain coming and going since.  Don't know.  I have another check up scheduled so will see what is going on.

Going to heat and ice my back and hope for the best.  I will work on some more artwork and have been selling some neat stuff so happy about that.

Happy November

November 1st!  Boy the year has just flown by.  My little one will be 5 in 14 days! Wow.  What happened, he is growing so fast, I feel like he was just born yesterday. He is so excited for his birthday.  I am instructed to make a rainbow cake with Angry Birds on the outside....oh boy. Rainbow cake easy...Angry Birds...don't know.

Going to try and get a couple dozen perogies made today.  Been quite awhile and seems like perogie weather.  Have to get caught up on artwork.  Got one new design going on today.  Need to keep that going, every little bit helps!

Today I have a digital watercolor from a vintage illustration.  Enjoy your weekend!

Watercolor Owl
This was a tiny illustration that I worked on digitally to create a nice watercolor print!
