I have to admit, I have a thing for pillows. Even better when I can see my designs come to life on them. I love Labs and thought I had rescued one from a shelter ten years ago when our dog was only two months old. When I brought her to the vet for her first check-up, he let me know, to my surprise, that we had an Ibezan Hound, not a Lab. Well, she turned out to be a Lab-Ibezan mix. And when those ears of hers stood up like bat wings at around 4 months of age, I knew for sure she wasn't a Lab. We're talking huge ears! So granted, she wasn't the Lab we wanted, but we fell in love with her. She's such a part of the family that I can't imagine our life without her. Oh, and click on the pillow. It will take you to my store. And you can also see the other products, too, while you're there. Thanks for visiting!
I love other artist's works in progress. I hope you feel the same as I do. Granted, I'm in my cute mode for my stores for Easter, but I will get onto some more "serious" art soon. I really love doing both. Here's what I had the chance to do today. This is a really detailed piece that really should have been done on smoother paper. Paper really dictates how the final art will look, along with your quality of chosen medium ( s ).
It's getting wild over at Zazzle with some new, fun, products to design on. My adorable cupid kitties and stylized girl with flowers and hearts are a sweet celebration of Valentine's Day. The nice thing is that the buyer can customize the product with a name making it the perfect gift for Valentine's Day that will send a message of love throughout the year. Hugs and kisses to you all. Thanks so much for popping by!

Mother's Day Teapot on Zazzle
I love making products for my POD store on Zazzle. They have a lot of new, wonderful products to create on. The trick is to make sure your design works on the product. Take the time to design it, just don't throw it on haphazardly. There are a lot of things to consider... are you within the safety margins for your image and type? Does your image fit the product? Is your choice of font readable? Use your image on only those products that work for your image. In fact, you can download templates and design to them. Make products that can be customized with a name and more, and use proper key words so that people can find you. Nothing is more annoying than spamming keywords for your products. Keep them relevant to the category that best fits your image, in fact the best thing to do is design to a category to be relevant than trying to fit in somewhere.

In the works of creating customizable Mother's Day gifts for my Zazzle store. This art is created traditionally with pencil and watercolors. Cards will be on my card stores shortly. I love creating art that represents simpler, uncomplicated times. A sweet innocence that comes with communing with nature and animals in particular.
