Great Quality Products

Love Animals! Need some new postage for the New Year! Funny Photos!

I thought I'd share a little about the great products that you can purchase on Zazzle. If you've never made a purchase from Zazzle, this will give you a little overview! I have personally bought several different items from Zazzle! First off, I was very impressed with the greeting cards that I purchased! The quality of the card stock was excellent, the cards had a very nice sheen to them and the designs on the cards looked great! I gave several away for birthdays! My husband bought me one of the t-shirts that I had designed, it was the fashion tee, the fit was great for me, and the design and text on the shirt turned out perfect! I definitely recommend these! Recently I also purchased two different calendars, a scenic calendar and a floral one, both of excellent quality. The photo's turned out very nice! I would recommend these for gifts as well! There are many great ideas for upcoming birthdays and new babies, weddings and all kinds of holidays! Shell's Designs

Winter Wonderland

Postcard of the snowfall in Vancouver, B.C.

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a fabulous Christmas. The guys opened their stockings around 9am. I know they're big boys but the stockings are still one of their favourite christmas traditions! We opened gifts and had a fabulous Christmas breakfast! We put the turkey in to cook around 11am. Christmas dinner was awesome and I think we all ate a little too much! The snow was still coming down as it is right now! I haven't seen this much snow here for years! My oldest son build this snow fort in the back yard! He build a bench inside that can seat several adults! See Photo) Unbelievable hey! The weather says another 10cm today! It's weird kinda being snowed in! Oh well, it's cozy by the fire and christmas tree lights! That's it for now!

Brr... So Cold!

It has been snowing again since last night! Wow, I'm so glad I'm not one of those last minute shopper's cause I wouldn't want to be out in this weather! It is still snowing and it looks very winter wonderlandish but very cold! I stuck my head out the door this morning and took a couple of photos of the snow, as you can see! Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and that 2009 brings great things your way! Time to get creating and working on some new design ideas! Hmmmm... maybe something with Snow! :-) Shell's Designs

First Snow

Shell's Designs
Well we woke up to snow coming down this morning! We now have about 3 inches or so and it is still coming down in big flakes! I went outside to clean the snow off my vehicle and to shovel the driveway when I realized my son took the shovels with him snowboarding yesterday and is not home until tonight! So I hope I can get out of the driveway later when I have to go out! I prefer to stay home on snowdays with a nice pot of coffee and work on my zazzle designs. I think it's a good day to work on snowy designs, snowmen and winter scenes!

A magnet for your favorite carpenter!

We'll I just found out that I may be working extra days this coming week and monday and tuesday of the following week, so I had a panic moment and thought wow, I better get my wrapping done today! We went to the Christmas concert at our church last night! It was a kids musical, they all did an awesome job, acting and singing! Brought back lots of memories of our boys in their younger years! So this morning I spent about 3 hrs. or so wrapping gifts! Glad that I am finished that! Just have a couple gifts to put together for work! Things at Zazzle have been busy, I have found that mugs with cute sayings have been a popular selling item for me! They do make great gifts for friends and co-workers ect. Pop by my zazzle store and have a peek! Just a few more days to order for gifts to arrive in time for Christmas! Shell's Designs

Tree is Decorated

Well it's been a busy few days! The house is all decorated and the tree is up! An artificial one of course! We used to have a family tradition of going to the tree farm and wandering (sometimes in the snow) through the christmas trees to cut down the perfect tree with our boys when they were younger. That tradition stopped about 4 or 5 years ago, the guys didn't want to come with us anymore, so that's when we made the move to the artificial tree! We have lots of family video for memories, on those great family outings! I've been creating design for my store, some christmas ones as well as some fun every day designs! Sweets and Dessert designs like cakes and cupcakes are some designs I came up with the last few days! We'll better get busy for now! Thanks to those who follow my blog and for your great comments! Chat again soon!

Couldn't wait

Well I started decorating today, I know I usually wait til Dec. 1st but today was such a rainy inside day and we didn't really have anything else planned so I dove in! I actually love decorating for Christmas! Even without the tree (which I will do on Dec. 1st) it looks very pretty and festive in our home! Lots of glass balls in bowls and vases and clear mini lights with greenery, I love that look! Anyhow I better get to work on some new designs, here are some that I just finished! Have an awesome day!

This has been a busy week can't believe how the time goes so quickly! Took in the new James Bond movie, the name just slipped my mind, shesh, age I guess! :-) The movie was great, action-packed as expected! I heard that the main actor, Daniel Craig broke his arm during the making of this movie! Definitely worth seeing on the big screen! I've been doing a little writing, working on some articles and creating my zazzle designs! Actually I designed and sold some business cards this week! These ones I made using my floral photographs that I took in the summer! I love capturing flowers and nature shots, so beautiful and refreshing! Check out the sales that Zazzle is promoting this week, 10% off til Nov. 24. Have an awesome weekend!

Great Workout

Well I just came back from the gym, shortly ago! No worries, I've showered! :-) Now onto my morning coffee! While I was working out this morning I was looking around the gym at all the different people, many different shapes and sizes but I believe all with a common goal of getting in better physical shape and becoming fitter and healthier! I love that feeling after a workout when you feel stronger and healthier and have so much more energy for the day! It's a good feeling! I've been working on an article on 'Rose Photography', if you love roses or photography you'll have to come check it out! I will post it on my blogsite with my other lenses! I've also been working on some more cute snowmen for my zazzle store! Hopefully the sales will pick up now that it's getting closer to Christmas! Zazzle just joined up with PayPal now, so you can purchase that way! They also have 10% off all orders with Paypal until the end of Nov. 20th. (That's tomorrow) So if you want to get a little deal, you better go shopping now! Take care for now!

Getting in the Mood

Zazzle is having a free shipping sale on all orders = $45.00 or more before taxes. To get this deal use the code HOLIDAYSHIPS at the checkout! It's time to get thinking about gift ideas, shopping and decorating the home for the holidays! I usually start my decorating on December 1st. I start with putting up garlands and wreaths, wrapping bannisters with greenery and mini-lights, (clear only for me) then I fill crystal bowls and vases with glass balls, and put out some of my other favourite christmas items. Then the last to decorate is the tree. Save the biggest job for the last! So much fun to decorate! I've been adding tips to my Decorating lens so have a peek again! Chat soon!
