Countdown to Europe

Okay, the big trip is almost here! Getting excited and finalizing the packing list.   This is my first trip to Europe!  I thought since I’m checking my packing list I may as well share some tips here. I’m sure many of you will be taking trips this year so you may be able to apply some of the information I share!


1) Passport – keep a spare copy of your passport and birth certificate with you and leave a copy at home with someone in your family.

2) Shoulder Bag – (ladies) a good bag that has an adjustable sturdy shoulder strap, allows your hands to be free and is safer. For the (guys) maybe a money belt or a ‘man’ bag…

3) Euro’s and Credit Cards – take enough Euro’s with you for the first couple of days, and a back up credit card to be safe.

4) Pack light, once you’ve decided on your clothes, leave one outfit behind, you’ve probably packed more than you’ll need. (I know this one is hard)

5) Pack vitamins, ibuprofen and any stomach or nausea medication you think you might need.

6) A few random things I’m throwing in… band-aids, large zip lock bags, safety pins, neck pillow, hand sanitizer… what else would you suggest?

Well although I’ve been very busy getting ready, I have still found time for some new designs… my store will still be open so drop by anytime… Designs by Shell

Ways to Make Money with Zazzle

I thought today I’d share just how you can earn an income with Zazzle. This is not a get rich overnight business but with time and patience it can grow to bring you a nice pay check. If you follow my blog regularly you already know about my store called Designs by Shell. Zazzle is a print on demand company that produces and sells thousands of products online. Totally free to join! That’s right no fees! To be clearer, Zazzle is the host for thousands of stores. They even host major brands like Hallmark and Disney. Professionals and amateur designers and photographers from all over the world can create designs and images, upload them to a selection of hundreds of products and sell them through their own storefront on Zazzle. Print on demand products range from gift items, apparel, seasonal products as well as many paper products.

I’ll share two of the main ways to generate an income with Zazzle. The first being to create and sell your own designs/photography in your Zazzle store.  When you create a zazzle account you create a store, choose a name for it and begin creating products immediately.

The second would be to become an affiliate marketer and refer and sell other designers/photographer’s work. Zazzle has an in house affiliate marketing program where you can earn up to 15% on each sale that comes from your referral. If you’re interested in marketing but not into designing then this would be the perfect way for you to go. I hope this gives you a little more incite to making money with Zazzle.
