Skunks Get a Bad Rap

We all know that skunks are the animals that are capable of spreading their strong, bad odour. Did you know that there are 12 different species of skunks ranging in colors from black and white to cream and brown. All skunks are striped, some may have a single stripe while others may have broken stripes on their bodies or legs. These are unique animals though not really ones we want to come in contact with.  I prefer the cartoon variety of skunks myself. Yes, I’ve been busy creating some cool skunk designs for my store. Designs by Shell  My husband and I had fun throwing some interesting sayings around to accompanying my designs. They really take on a character with their funny expressions. Anyways here are some of my skunk designs as well as some from other artists.

Owls Are A Popular Trend

Have you noticed that owl themed items are popping up everywhere. They can be found on apparel and footwear, jewelry and gift items even on pillows, home decor and garden products. When you bring your attention to one design theme, like owls you tend to see them everywhere.  So I got on the band wagon and designed a few of my own cute owls for products in my store. Some cute whimsical critters. Here you’ll see a few items of mine as well as some cute ones I like by other Zazzle designers. Come by Designs by Shell for a visit as I’m adding new products pretty much daily.

August a Great Month for Day Trips

August is a great month to enjoy outdoor activities. The last couple of weeks have been full of outdoor adventures for my husband and I. Let’s see what have we done, first we did a 10km bike ride around the seawall in Stanley Park,Vancouver. We visited a beautiful outdoor show garden one day, we went kayaking on the ocean for a couple of hours one morning, we’ve walked and gone on mini-bike rides many times. My husband had a couple of golf games and we had barbeques with friends and just enjoyed the great weather.  There is something to be said about breathing in fresh air and feeling the warmth of the sun on your face. Mmmm…

I’ve been busy working on a variety of designs for my store, a little bit of everything as time permitted. Here is a small sample, stop by my store for a visit when you can. Designs by Shell

Another animal I created was a pink elephant, I used this design on several items as well. Here is a little taste for you…
