Home Sweet Home Sale

I made a sale today on my "Home Sweet Home" design. It's a postcard invitation for a housewarming party (click on the picture to see the reverse side). I designed this one when my husband and I were house hunting last Fall.
I had intended to use this invitation when we had our housewarming party, but we moved in March and still haven't been able to get a party together! Instead, I sent out these "new address" cards. They are chubby business cards and are the perfect size to drop into a envelope/note to send to family & friends.

New Site

I recently bought a new domain name - - and just finished making a starter site for it. Check it out! :)

Challenge Win

Sometimes I like to enter into the challenge groups at Red Bubble. It's a great way to get some inspiration for new designs, and it's fun to see what everyone contributes! Today I was the challenge winner of "The Sentimental Heart" challenge with my "Love Birds" design - yay!

Bouquet Birds made a sale today... I made this particular design as a custom r.s.v.p. postcard for a couple a few months ago. I'm all for customizing these to suit people and love to help out! Out of all the fantastic wedding designs out there, I am flattered that anyone chooses mine for their big day!

Sale & Update

It's been a few days since I've updated here! I have been busy getting things together for a trip to NC, and getting some art stuff together to put in my sister-in-law's new gallery - very exciting!
Yesterday I added some blank greeting cards to my gallery on zazzle. I'm trying to get it more organized with more products. I realized the other day that I had a ton of postcards and hardly any note cards, so I'll be adding a lot more of those when I have the time. Today I actually sold this design - yay!

I came across this design today on zazzle by the very talented captphrank - I love it!

4th of July

For the last few nights, someone has been setting off fireworks in my neighborhood, which are always fun to watch - it just doesn't get old! So here's a new one for the upcoming 4th of July! I can't believe it's already summer - where does the time go?!?

Another kitty...

Here's my second kitty design... I've been using bits and pieces from bigger illustrations and putting them together in a different way. The possibilities are endless!

New Baby Designs


I made a couple new designs yesterday, but this one is the only one I had time to get ready for zazzle, so I will share! I usually stick to birds only, but I've been wanting to do a cat design for a while. I have a gray kitty that I adore (even though she eats my flip flops, wakes me up hours before the alarm, and destroys my curtains)! She watches birds at the window (hence my destroyed curtains) for the better part of her day so this is the cat pose that I see often!

Either that or interrupting me while I'm trying to work!


Two of these keychains sold today! I could make a comment about how it's wierd that a Christmas design would sell in June, but I'm a huge fan of all things Christmas, so I don't think it's strange at all! In fact, yesterday I made a few new designs (which I will post as soon as they are computer-ready!) and one of them was Christmas related... it just makes me happy!

I made several new designs today... fruit trees! I think they make cute housewarming cards or invites. :)
Or cute bags for groceries or gardening supplies!

I sold this today - first time this design has made a sale... very cool, especially since it was the one I was most fond of. :)

Again, "Love Birds" made a sale today!

Today's Best!

One of the designs I made today has been featured at Zazzle and chosen for a "Today's Best" Award! :) Yay!

More Cards...

I mad some more sentiment postcards today... This "Songbirds" painting was one of the first of my birds series and I was glad to re-find it today and use it! :)

Tidying Up

I reorganized my gallery today... for whatever reason I always have a hard time choosing categories for everything to fit into! Lots of people have split their products into groups and opened several galleries to accomodate their different products & styles. This is very smart! But the thought of opening up even more galleries to promote & maintain makes me a little overwhelmed!! So instead I just keep reorganizing the one I've got! :) I'm going to be adding lots of different "missing you" notes soon, so stay tuned... I really love the quality of zazzles postcards and with postage rates always climbing, I find postcards are actually a fun way to keep in touch. I email a lot, but I also love to send real mail to people (and get real mail)! It's a little more fun & personal than an "inbox" message! ;)

Coming Up!

Father's Day is quickly approaching! If you are thinking of ordering any zazzle gifts, you can find one here!

Eight copies of my "Love Birds" postcard sold today! I appreciate all of the interest in this design! It's fantastic to have people like this enough to order and send out in the mail!!


I ran across this gallery today, full of amazing artwork! Definitely worth checking out... there were so many amazing pieces of art it was hard to choose these to feature here!! :)


I sold several sheets of this "Forever Birds" design - it's the first time this design has sold - exciting! I think it would be cute for a 50th Anniversary!


Today I sold this:

And a few weeks ago I sold 8 customized copies of this:

And some of these!
Congrats to everyone on their happy events!!
