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.

Today's showcase,

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!!

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!!

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!

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???

Pic heavy weekend!

We carved pumpkins!  Or I should say I carved 99% of the pumpkins and that totaled three...

That was fun!  We got some interesting pumpkins for the holiday!

I took a five mile walk and saw 9 deer, beautiful leaves and scenery...

Was a beautiful chilly weekend and loved every minute of it!  Now it is back to the grindstone and get through the remaining products on Zazzle, make 10 media items and make collections.  Should be fun!

Today's sale showcase is...

From on of my other stores! My photography. This is one of my cats. She was an awesome cat and I miss her dearly.

Friday, more like Fried-day

My eyes are watering, I have 71 more pages of 100 products to go through then I am done with that portion. I know it will take me through mid next week to finish because my eyes just won't take it.  My ranking hasn't moved but hopefully when I tackle the other areas Zazzle would like done I can move that rank a bit.

Today is going to be a rough day, have a lot on my plate as well as the normal domestic duties.  I will at least get 10 more pages of products checked.  That is a goal.  I also have some paperwork that I have been putting off that I need to resolve so that is on the docket as well.  Already dreading...

Today's showcase...

I love this print and so does everyone else. I think besides the honey bees this is one of the top sellers. First time on an ornament and I sold a few in this order. I am happy and I hope those who receive this ornament love them as well. Enjoy the weekend. I will be carving pumpkins! I can't wait. Be back on Monday.

Week almost over already.

Well I didn't get much computer work done.  The power company is working on the power lines and we keep getting dips in our electricity which knocks off the computer so I gave up on working on stuff yesterday. I hope they are done so I can get back to cleaning Zazzle.

I ended up going out and find shelving for my son's room to try and organize it.  I hope it helps!!  We need to pare down but that is tough with a 6 year old!

Today's showcase...

We haven't seen this one in awhile. Accordions! We love them. Might be my Polish background but still, love accordions!

Ready for chilly weather!

We may get snow flurries on Saturday morning!  The year has just flown by.  I can't believe it is almost middle October already. That is why you must enjoy each day because before long another year goes by!

I am still going through my products.  I have a feeling this might last way into next week.  Once that is done I start the next steps.  I hope I can raise my zrank.  I don't want to be on the bottom!

Another Terrific Tuesday on the way.

Yesterday I did quite a bit of cleaning out of Zazzle, not even half way done.  I am getting there.  Then I have to figure out collections and sharing collections and adding media....arrgh.

I plan to do more Zazzle cleaning and hopefully finish my laundry!  We will see about that.  It is supposed to rain today so lots of indoor work.  Yesterday was so nice, in the 70's and warm.  I think that might be the last day like that.

I have a Halloween sale to show...

I love this cat and owl vintage greeting card. We all should send more cards. They are fun to get in the mail. I still do!!

Lovely October

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp.  It is so lovely outside.  Certainly will enjoy this season. Got most of the summer furniture cleaned and put away.  Got to get ready for snow.   That will be here in no time!

I am still working on my Zrank and hopefully will be through all my current products this week.  Deleting anything that has not sold.  It will be tedious but I will get it done.

I have a sale to showcase...

I sold a bunch of these postcards with lots of other chicken breeds. I like them and I am so glad others do as well!  I have had a good past few days of sales.  I am grateful for this opportunity.  Enjoy your Monday!

OMG it's Friday Again!!

I managed to get another piece of artwork done and posted.  I am trying to figure out Zazzle's new format with Zrank and that will effect my artwork for awhile.  Looks like I have to remove all products that have not sold ever and do some other things to raise my rank.  Let's see if I can do it!!!

Today is going to be rainy so I should be able to work quite a bit on the computer. I don't know if I will get anything new on until I understand these new policies.  I am to old to learn new things...not really just being stubborn!

The new artwork is...

Something for Halloween or if you are in the pirate mood! I like it. Did some digital painting. Something different and of course ready for All Hallows Eve.

Enjoy your weekend and I will be back on Monday!

I didn't get another item posted for Zazzle but did get some artwork done.  I will have that posted today. They were running late at the doctors office so I had less time to do any artsy stuff.  It was a beautiful day yesterday.  I hope today is just as nice.  I would like to get a walk in if possible.  It does help clear my mind when working on artwork.

Okay the latest sale!

This is awesome!!! This is the first sale of this design, and on a business card! I love love love it! I am so happy it sold. I think that means today will be a great day!

More stuff on Zazzle!

I managed to get another vintage image cleaned up and posted for sale!!  Maybe I am on a roll!  Well today I have a doctors appointment so that will cut into my design time but we'll see what I can get done later in the day.

So here is today's new image...

I actually like it! We will see if it will sell. I know it is a bit late to put Halloween on but I thought this image was adorable and just had to give it a go!

Short post today, nothing too exciting happened yesterday.  There is always today!!

Tuesday, October 6, 2015


I actually got a new piece of artwork on Zazzle!!!  What?!  Better write this day down. I'll show you what I posted below but first, the dog I reconditioned.



I am not sure I like how shiny it is but if it is going to be outside it will dull quickly.  I think it came out pretty nice, even made the sign look like wood!

Now to my new upload!
Even though I uploaded on to products, it will take 24 hours before they show up in my store.  That's okay.  They will be up for sale too!  I like this turkey.  It was a vintage image but too distorted to use on products so I digitally made into a painting and works just fine now on all sorts of products!  I wonder what I will get done today?

Monday, October 5, 2015


What a lovely weekend.  We got a little over 5 inches of rain but Sunday turned out to be so nice.  We needed the rain. On Saturday we went to an apple orchard and got apples and pumpkins!
I was able to give the lawn ornament I painted a clear coat yesterday so I will assemble and take pictures today and you should see it tomorrow!  My computer mouse is giving me trouble.  I will try and clean it and hopefully it will continue to work for me.  Don't want to have to get another one yet.  I tend to wear them out fast.

Today's showcase is perfect for October...

An owl and black cat! I love this vintage Halloween print. I can't believe it is October already and that Halloween is just around the corner!

Friday, October 2, 2015


When Zazzle finally came back up yesterday I thought it was too late to amend my post.  I finished getting my bicycle print on and I am working on a vintage turkey image that is driving me crazy but I will figure it out.   We did some decorating before the bus arrived yesterday.
Isn't he adorable!!!  He did a good job.

Today I will get that turkey print done.  I will get my fingers to warm up.  They are so cold! And I will get this weekend started!!!  Check out the showcase...

I haven't seen this one in awhile! We love our chickens!!! Such a colorful nice vintage print. Have a great weekend and see you Monday!!!

Fabulous Thursday!

We had much rain yesterday morning but stopped around 11am. Then the wind came, wow!  I went for a walk and it was tough.  Lots of debris around.  We make get more if Joaquin arrives!

Here is a sneak peek at what I was doing during the rain, I should say painting...
I stole one of my parent's yard ornaments and I am repainting it, pretty much redesigning it! Once I finish I will have the before and after photos!

I did get some more of my latest design on Zazzle.  It is tough doing it single item at a time but I am getting there.  I guess maybe I need to really look at what products sell and only place images on those.  I need to this design on a T shirt.  I do sell those.

I want to show you a latest sale but Zazzle is down and I can't load it up. I guess my little sneak peek above will have to do.  If Zazzle comes back up soon I will edit the post and add in a showcase!
