Feels like Fall

The weather is definitely beginning to change, signs of fall are in the air. Fall is actually one of my favourite seasons. I love the crisp freshness it brings. So do certain things come to your mind when you think of fall days. Hmmm... like colourful leaves, pumpkin pie, refreshing nature walks. These are just a few things that I think of. How about you? I've been working on designs for my store. Everything from Halloween pumpkins to snowmen. I know I'm a little early with the snowman designs but when you have a business you always have to be thinking ahead to the next holidays! Hope you enjoy some of my fun creations. I am creating new ones almost everyday, so come on by for a look around! Designs by Shell

Rain Brings Renewal and Growth

It's raining, it's it feels good to be refreshed with some rain. The lawns and flowers sure could use it right now! I love the freshness and scent after a good rain. Just like the earth needs rain to grow and flourish we all have days and things that happen in our lives and sometimes it feels like we are being rained on. I believe we are given these times to shape us and help us grow, to make us stronger and develop our character. This last week has been busy for me so I will have to get busy now with some new designs for my store. I thought I'd share some of my nature and sunflower designs. I've used these on items such as business cards, greeting cards, mugs and magnets. Feel free to visit my store to see many more like these.

It's A Hot One

Whoa, I stepped outside today to go do a couple of errands and the temperature in my vehicle read 36 degrees, it came down to 34 by the time I got moving but talk about a hot one. I like warm weather but not so hot that you can't do anything. Hope you're keeping cool wherever you are! Well I've been working on quite a wide variety of designs this last week so the items I post may be quite a mix. I did some more cupcake designs with sayings, some inspirational sayings paired with some of my floral photography and some cool items I designed using pics' I took of the cutest duck we saw at a park recently. Hope you enjoy this one! Have a great day!

Some Like to Fish

All of these items can be purchased in my store, under the Sports category!

Well, as I was thinking about what I would blog about today... our recent visit to Kelowna came to mind! Summer is the time when so many are travelling and exploring the outdoors. My husband and I recently went kayaking on Okanagan Lake. A beautiful hot day, the lake was a different kayaking experience than I'd had on a calm river in Kauai, Hawaii. It took me a little time to get used to the waves and choppiness that the boats created for us. A fun experience though! Some people like to hike, some like to swim, others like to fish. What's your favourite summer activity to do? Above you'll see a few cute fishing designs that I created for products for my store. Hope you stop by for a visit! Designs by Shell

Flowers Galore - A Photographer's Dream

Can you believe it's August already? The summer is going by far too quickly! It's been a busy week for me. My husband Brian and I have been doing day trips to parks and gardens. We went to a beautiful 'Botanical Garden' called VanDeusen Gardens in south Vancouver. I was in photographers heaven. I took so many fabulous pics' of unique flowers and plants. My favourite hydrangea flowers were all blooming in a variety of colors and sizes. There were daisies and sunflowers, begonias and petunias and so many varieties of roses. So above you'll see a few of the pics I used for products in my store. We also experienced our first B&B in Kelowna. Stayed at a great place with a swimming pool right on the golf course. We had a good time gofing on a natural green putting course and kayaking on the lake. Also got in some visiting with family too! Now it's back to work... pop by my store to see more of my creations.
