Adding More Fruits and Veggies to Your Diet

We all know the importance of getting more fruits and vegetables in our diets. However, some days it can be extremely hard to eat the recommended daily quota of 7-8 servings (per adult) of fruits and veggies but there are many ways we can consume them. They can be eaten fresh, frozen or canned. They can be purchased already cut up for us, added to soups, stews and salads. We can whip them up in a fruit/veggie smoothie or juice. I’ve been working on some fruit and vegetable designs for products in my store. Above you’ll find some of them on labels, postage and t-shirts. Some cartoon fruits and veggies as well as more realistic looking ones. I’ve just been having fun creating and designing them. I have them on several other products as well, so come by my store Designs by Shell to see what else is new. Why not try a new fruit or vegetable this week, perhaps something a little different like star fruit, mangoes, papaya’s or eggplant.

Valentines Day - Give a Little More Love

Valentines Day is fast approaching. The day the world celebrates with romantic words, sentiments and sometimes special gifts. A day to show your spouse, partner or significant other, in perhaps an extra special way how much you love and care for them. The sentiments carry on to those special people in your life like parents, grandparents, and your children. Sometimes to special friends and teachers too! Approximately 1 billion Valentines cards are sent on this occasion. Not to mention how many roses are sold on this day! Here you'll find some of the Valentines designs from my store. Perhaps something for your special someone! To see more come by my store Designs by Shell

Get Noticed with New Business Cards

Perhaps your business design is getting a little stale and your tired of handy out boring cards. Well one way to get yourself and your business recognized and noticed is to hand out some stylish, new business cards. A fresh, new look just might keep your business on people's minds. It's also still one of the most effective ways to promote a business. I thought I'd feature 'Strawberry Designs' on business cards. Some are designed by myself and others by various artists. Just click on the one that you'd like to view to see upclose and view the back of card as well.

I've been working hard on new designs for my store. Along with some new ideas for business cards I've been busy creating fruit and veggie designs. Strawberries, watermelon and my latest tomatoe designs. These I've used to make cute t-shirts, postage for spring and summer, delightful mugs and other interesting gift items. Pop by my store to see more...

Princess and Pirate Birthday Parties

Birthday party themes have been on my mind again so I've been busy designing some cute ideas for princess parties and pirate parties. These seem to be popular themes with kids ages 4 to 12 years old. I came up with a fabulous princess cake design and of course a magical wand. Every princess should have one of these for sure! I've been designing birthday invitations, goodie bag favours like stickers, magnets and buttons. For the pirates I created cool invitations, along with buttons and stickers too. Below you'll see some of my creations, for more come by my store Designs by Shell to see other ideas.

This Princess Button I received a TBA for on Jan. 11th (Todays Best Award)

A New Year has begun! Here we are in 2011, what does this year hold for us we all wonder! Are you one of those people who like to make resolutions? I prefer to set goals and make plans rather than do the resolution thing. It is good to take note and review what you want your year to look like and then begin moving in that direction. We all need a little motivation and encouragement and that's what pushed me to write a lens on 'Motivational Office Products and Sayings' and then design some motivational posters, mugs and business cards to go along with it! I also found these really neat posters on Amazon, where you can purchase a whole set! Here are some of the ones I've been creating, you can view other motivational items in my store. Designs by Shell
