Add busy work schedule, holiday stuff, homework every night, domestic duties...I am exhausted.  I missed yesterday and today for posting.  I think I will have to revamp my posting schedule.  I don't think I can do every day like I have.  Maybe Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  We will see, I 'll give it a try.

I have nothing too new to add other than a mamma bear and her three cubs visited the yard the other day, took down the bird feeders and had a nice snack!

Today a Showcase...

A cute lamb luggage tag!  I love it!  Have been selling quite a few products during this holiday.  I am very happy about that!

Really busy at work, I am exhausted when I get home.  I am exhausted now but it is Friday so time to rest during the weekend!
Short post today because nothing really happened neat....maybe over the weekend! 

Today's Showcase...

A fox bag! Cool, nice vintage print! Have a great weekend!

Well it is Thursday

Today and tomorrow and the weekend is here, getting holiday decorating done when I can.  I have a ton of laundry to get done the next few days and then grocery shopping as well.  Not to mention holiday shopping!  Rainy the past few days, trying not to let it get me down.  Miss the sunshine.  Off to start another wonderful day!

Today's showcase...

Chickens!!! We all love chickens, don't we?

Wednesday, December 2, 2015


I am exhausted but excited.   Guess it will take me longer than I thought to get used to this schedule. Still mulling around whether to blog every other day or maybe a big one once a week with updates.  I don't want to stop completely but will have a break during the holiday time.

A busy start to the week.

I'm exhausted and it is only Tuesday!  I am tempted to just blog every other day because I feel bad because I have nothing new to report.  I will think about that.

I have been selling like mad though!  Check the next sale out...

What a holiday!

Loved the holiday vacation, went by fast.  I can't believe how my life has changed in the past few weeks.  I will go into more detail later but for now I am very happy. I know that these changes have cut down my time on Zazzle.  I plan on doing some more just need to get into a groove.  It is tough with my son having homework every night, so when I get home we have almost an hour of that.  Weekends are now catching up on housework and bills.  I know this is the normal for most people but it is new to me and I need time to adjust.  I am happy I have enough stuff and variety on Zazzle that I make sales just about every day.  I am so grateful and thankful for that.!

Today's showcase...

It is just about the time of year for skiing!  So I am very pleased to see this popular print sell every time!

I'm late getting going, so sorry....

Have a great rest of the week for the holiday...need better alarm!!!



Motorcycle key chain! YES! Boy, sorry again for short post...must get ready for work!

Tuesday, November 24, 2015


Yesterday was extremely busy at work.  Came home, ate dinner and collapsed.  I am beat this morning as well.  I feel bad because I don't have as lively posts as before but I am sure as I get myself in a groove they will return!

Right to the showcase since I am so tired...must wake up!

A vintage motorcycle luggage tag! Awesome! The Christmas sales have begun. I hope it will be at least as nice as last years. Only time will tell!

Short week, holiday is coming!

Thanksgiving is just days away...turkey and pie!  YUM!  Though I am going to be good and just have one, or two slices of pie.  I will pig out on turkey but be good on the sides.  At least I will try!  Needed the last few days to rest.  I am not used to not being home while working so now it is a mad dash to get homework done, chores done, set up for next day and try and Zazzle.  I know it will take time for a routine to set in place, sometimes I get impatient!

Today's showcase...been selling lots...

OMG!! So glad this Christmas kitty vintage print sold on a pillow! I love it so much. I think it is one of the best Christmas images I ever saw. Well pretty close. It is just really cute!

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

I think I am winning!

The cold fight that is, probably just jinxed myself but I am really working hard at keeping this cold at bay.  We will see, time will tell, etc!

Short post today, I am tired and got to get moving...sorry!

Today's showcase...

I love this vintage fox print! Too cute for words!

I will be back Monday....

I am exhausted...I am going to take a breather until Monday.  I am not used to a full time job schedule yet and it is hitting me hard right now.  I will be back on Monday because I have many sales to show!  Have a wonderful weekend and if you can rest too!

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

I believe I am fighting a cold.

I will not get it, no sick for me.  I am watching myself closely, taking medicine and resting.  I don't want to get sick especially since starting a new job.  I am tired today, I know because I am not up to par but only this week and 3 days next week before the Thanksgiving break.  Not that I don't like work, love it!  Just if I am getting sick a few days rest would be in order.

I am still selling something every day.  I like today's...

A cool vintage motorcycle business card holder. Awesome!!!

Monday, November 16, 2015

I over ate, so stuffed!!!

What a party this weekend. I ate more than I ever should ever again.  I am so stuffed I can not move but I  must because it is off to work soon!  Check out the party pics...

The decorations!!  They were fun to make and hang, some were store bought also.

The cake...oh the cake!  It was delicious, with ice cream....oh so stuffed!!!  I think I will have to eat clean all week and next up to thanksgiving to undo all the food I have eaten the past few days...oh cake!

I am still selling!!!!!!!!!!!  I am stoked!

One more day

One more day and I will have a full week of work in.  Who knew I would go for an interview Friday, actually two because I was offered another job as well!  And I would be working the next Monday!  I love it so far.  It can be taxing learning so many new things but that is what our brain needs, lots of work!  I hope once I get in a routine then I will be able to schedule things better.  Tonight I have to ice a cake and prepare for my son's party tomorrow.  He is so excited to turn 7!

I have been making lots of sales!  Here is the latest...

I like this one too! Another musical instrument. We all love accordions!

Have a great weekend.  I will be back on Monday with party pictures!

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Half way done!

I made it through Wednesday!  So far I am learning so much and having a good time. Can't beat that.

I have some more decorations to make for my son's birthday on Saturday.  I have a cake to make on Friday and to decorate on Saturday morning.  He wants tacos for his lunch so I have that to make as well.  Busy, busy, busy!!

I also have been selling like crazy!  I don't know why but certainly am not going to question it.
Today I have...

A watercolor bee business card! I like how this image turned out. One of my first attempts at digital watercolor.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Boy I am tired.

I am learning a lot at my new job.  It can get mentally tiring when trying to learn so much but it is fun and I am enjoying myself.

Short post today, nothing too new except new sales!

First Day In!

Wow, a first day at work! It was intense but fun. I have a lot to learn but know I can do it.  I am excited.  Ate too much over the weekend and today.  We were celebrating my new status as a worker.  I can't wait to really get into the work. It is cool, a telecommunication company.  Interesting and busy.  Just what I like!

I am still selling at least one item a day, mostly more.  So I am so happy about that.  Take a look at today's showcase...

Another chicken postcard. And this one is cool also!

Monday, November 9, 2015

OMG, things are changing.

I got the job!  I start today...What??!!  Yes, I am excited about this new chapter in my life.  I still plan on Zazzling but will not be as frequent, though with all that has gone on I really did not get much on lately!  Wish me luck on this new chapter and I do plan on keeping this blog going!

I had lots of sales over the weekend.  I so much appreciate all who have purchased from me.  I give you my thanks.

Today's showcase, I know short post but I got to get ready for work!

Today's the day!

I have still been making some real nice sales.  I am so thankful for that as well.  If I do get this job or any job I will keep up with Zazzle because I love it so much!

I hope all have a wonderful weekend and I will update you all on Monday.

Today's showcase,

Another vintage motorcycle! These are certainly popular as they should be. I like them a lot. Vintage bikes are a work of art.

Happy am I

My son ended up home one more day. He didn't sleep well the night before and would not be good to go to school.  Called and got the homework so we worked on that.  So glad he is feeling better!

I got an onsite interview coming up!  I am so happy.  Wish me luck again!

I did not get to Zazzle of course with two interviews and a sick child.  I did make lots of sales though and am thankful for that.  I tend to sell my self short at times and not think what I do is worthy of purchase but apparently it is and I need to give myself a bit more credit!

What a day yesterday!

Had my interviews, one was moved up a few hours so it was a race to get there.  I think they went well and now I wait.  My son was still sick and home from school again. If he is still fevery today (he is still sleeping as I type this) he is going to doctors.

Short post today... I am exhausted!

The matching postage to yesterdays showcase! Love it.

Nervous, nervous, nervous

Yesterday I told you I had a job interview today, well make that 2 job interviews today!  I am so nervous and excited.  And today is voting day too.  Lots going on.  I know I won't be able to get any Zazzle done today.  I didn't do much yesterday either.  My son was sick and stayed home so I was a nurse for the day.  Wish me luck today!

Today's showcase...

Oh, I love this Christmas card print! I really love it. I think it is so cute! One of my all time favorites.

What a lovely weekend

And a wonderful start to November.  I have costume pics!!

It was a fun Halloween!  I hope all of you had a great Halloween too.

I have a job interview tomorrow *gasp.  I am nervous.  It is part time so I will still be able to Zazzle.  Wish me luck as I am super nervous.

I don't know about the media items for Zazzle.  I haven't seen any stores with them yet.  The ones I have checked.  I may wait a bit and see if others get media items up.

Day before Halloween

Today my son has an early dismissal, parade at school and we have a movie planned when he comes home.  I am also making two gluten free pizzas as well. I won't have time for Zazzle today.  I didn't get much done on Zazzle yesterday.  Did more research to see what the media items should be.  It is confusing but I will figure it out!

Short post today since I don't have anything too new.  I will have costume pics on Monday!

Have a fun and safe Halloween tomorrow and I will be back on Monday.

It rained and rained yesterday

Lots of rain.  All day rain.  We need it.  Didn't check the rain gauge yet.  Bet it is filled to the top!  I managed to get some more work on my Zazzle store.  I am 95% complete in my store status but have not moved up any more in their ranking system.  I did make some sales!!

Today I have errands to run this morning so I will see what I can do this afternoon to complete my store.  Then I can get back to artwork!

Today's showcase...

The foxes again! This time on business cards. I love this vintage print. I think I like all that I put on but this one is special. Such a cute print.

Tuesday was wierd..

I don't know what happened to Tuesday.  It just got away from me.  I got into planning my son's birthday and some other computer stuff and the day just went fast.  I did do a sketch of what my son wants for his cake...
I got the Minecraft Spider Jockey figure already so just have to place that on top of the finished cake.  My son wanted me to build a skeleton out of cake but that is a bit above what I can do.  This way he gets a toy with the cake.  He loved that idea!  Now in two weeks let us see if I can recreate the drawing.

I had a nice walk and this is what I found...
The chives are blooming again!  I guess this warm weather spell has extended their season!  Pretty purple flowers, I think I like purple because I keep wearing purple clothes.

Today's showcase....

One of my absolute favorites! I love this vintage bunny image. I think it is just the tops! I have sold many business cards with this design. I seem to do well with business cards. I need to create some sets with stationary and such....

Last day of sun before the rain.

Tomorrow will be a rainy, windy day.  The remnants of Hurricane Patricia.  We do need the rain so I won't complain.  I will get out and get a good walk in though.  That way I won't be too sad Wednesday.

I did not get anything done on Zazzle yesterday.  I had multiple loads of laundry and then found a great deal on a desk for my son so I got it and built it.  Then moved his computer in and got that all set up.  He is absolutely thrilled.

I will try and get some more work on my zrank today.  We will see if I can raise my rank higher!

Today I have this to show...

A stagecoach shirt! I think this is the first time it sold! I am thrilled at that because I like the simple print. Enjoy today, it will be great!

Last week of October!!

I can not believe that this is the last week of October. Now that was a fast month.  To boot, on Sunday we turn our clocks back!  WOW.

We had fun on the weekend.  My son painted a wooden pumpkin.  We made Halloween cookies and played with costumes.  Check it out...

Today I have the final motorcycle in the set that sold last week...

Something new tomorrow. Enjoy your Monday!!

Friday, October 23, 2015

We are in for a change this Friday and over the Weekend!

Chilly weather is coming back!  It must, it's almost Halloween!  I enjoyed yesterday, not the cleaning and organizing of my son's room.  That was okay.  I did enjoy my 4 mile walk in the sunshine.  Needed it.  And look at my new friend.
Finally got a picture! The snakes are soaking in the warm sun before finding a place for the winter. I haven't seen snakes around in awhile.  It is so nice to see some.  I am not frightened of them.  They are cool, just doing their snakey things. Wish my son was with me though, he would have loved to see it.

Today's showcase...a theme developing?

Another vintage motorcycle! I sold 4 different ones and the last one will be shown on Monday. I am making sales still. Worried about the ranking system and hoping that won't effect my sales. So far I have done okay. Don't want to mess with it.

Well have a wonderful weekend.   We are planning to visit a pumpkin patch and have a hay ride.  I hope!  I will have pictures if we do!!

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Another nice day...

but will change as the day goes on.  We have a cold front coming through.  I think I will be able to get another walk in today before the change, then rain and cold weather coming.

I managed to get my 10 collections done, raised me to zrank 3 so I will see what else I can do.  It isn't easy, especially use older folk!

Another vintage motorcycle! I love these prints, if you didn't realize that already. I know a short post today. I am a little frazzled with some paperwork and the new Zazzle stuff. I hope to get everything settled soon and be back to creating new stuff!

Yesterday was nice!

It got up to 72 degrees yesterday.  It was awesome.  I worked a bit on Zazzle, started organizing my son's room and got outside for a nice 3 mile walk.  Look at what I found on my stroll...
A cute white caterpillar. I am hoping today is just as nice.  I love walking and seeing nature. First though is get a few more collections made on Zazzle and organize more in my son's room.  That is just as tedious and the Zazzle stuff!

A nice vintage motorcycle print! I love the motorcycles. I don't remember this one selling in a while. I wouldn't mind a bike like that!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

I have finished going through my products!

Whoa, that was intense.  I am done with cleaning out old products from Zazzle.  Now I need to make 10 collections and share 10 collections and load media items.  I guess I will figure that out.   This is not easy.  I hope it helps sales because this is all new to me. Only time will tell!

It was cold yesterday.  I did get a nice 3 mile walk in the sunshine.  I love the fall and getting out in the fresh air.  No deer spotting today, saw a little yellow butterfly though. I will get a small walk out today and maybe see something fun! I need to de-clutter my son's room.  I know it is hard for him but he has to let go of some old toys to make room for his birthday and Christmas gifts that I know are coming.  We do put the old toys aside and have our annual yard sale and then my son can use his earnings for something he really wants.  Try to teach him value of money and having a goal.

Today's showcase...

A whale cell phone cover! I love it. Who wouldn't. I wonder what tomorrow's will be???
