Teddybears with Personality

Little teddybear holding a string of holiday stars on a sunny background. Cute postage for the holiday season.

A great Christmas card to send out featuring this little bear holding a string of stars on a pretty background with stars and little snowflakes.

A customizable apron for the kids, personalize with their name. They'll love this bright and cheery holiday teddybear.

This little bear with his bright string of holiday stars is on a blue and green background with pretty snowflakes. A great Christmas gift.

Say Merry Christmas with this cute little teddybear and his stars on this fun magnet. A perfect stocking stuffer.

Teddybears have a way of making you smile! It's funny that no matter how old we are we all probably have memories of teddybears from our childhood or perhaps ones that our children played with. I love drawing and creating unique teddybears with different personalities and styles depending on the expressions I give to them. It's fun to give a gift that you know will brighten someone's day and I think these teddybears will do just that! Above you'll see some of my latest creations.

Ideas for Decorating for the Holidays

This design of 'Wrapped with Love' won me a TBA (Today's Best Award)

A cozy Christmas scene, viewed from the window. A Christmas tree all trimmed with a stack of pretty gifts beneath it.

A hot mug of coffee paired with Christmas and holiday magazines, the perfect way to relax on a rainy day! This weekend I picked up the Nov. issue of House and Home magazine. I love getting this holiday issue to see what new ideas or themes are being encouraged for the Christmas season. Do you have a favourite Holiday magazine that you love to glean ideas from, do tell? I've been creating some new Christmas designs of pretty snowflakes, cozy Christmas scenes and jolly little snowmen. I hope you enjoy those that I've shown you above. Come by my store to see many more cute designs. Designs by Shell This weeks special is $5 off all white t-shirts! Use code OCTSHIRTSALE

Gifts of Love

Another sunny October day today... had a lunch date with my Honey at a cozy restaurant. I also went for a walk with a friend I hadn't connected with in a long time. Talked to some of my family today and was encouraged. So that's why I wanted to share some of my 'love' designs. Love can be shown in so many different ways. Small ways and big ways! Perhaps by a phone call, an e-mail message, a lunch date, a visit over coffee, or a walk with a friend. So I encourage you to reach out to someone over the next week, maybe connect with someone you haven't seen in awhile, you never know how much that could be appreciated. Pop by my store to see more designs.

Something New - A Utube Experience

Well this post is a little different from my usual posts but I wanted to share this with you. Actually it came about because my husband Brian came home with a new flipcamera and needed to practice using it. So of course I got the job of being his interviewy (is that a word?) or camera subject. All in all we had some fun with it and I did a little interview about Squidoo. By now I'm sure you've heard me talk about writing lens' for squidoo. As you can see in the sidebar I have over a hundred of these mini-articles featured. So instead of me writing about 'What Squidoo Is and why you should use it, I want you to watch and listen to my Utube talk.

As you know I use Squidoo to help market my Zazzle store and in a future post I'll share another talk about how I started my own unique store. Here are a couple of my recent products for you to view. For lots more interesting designs come by for a visit. Designs by Shell

Music Touches Us All

Isn't it wonderful how it doesn't matter what country or place someone comes from music has a way of bringing everyone together. Now that's not saying we all like the same type or style of music but just that music has a way of touching all of us. Whether it's the words of a song that speak to us or just the melody that soothes us. So you guessed it, I've been designing music items for my store. I have especially been focusing on guitar themes. I created business cards, magnets and mugs with a musical theme. I also wrote a lens (mini-article) about Unique Gifts for Acoustic Guitar Players, come and have a look! Never too soon to start thinking of gifts for the holidays or birthdays! Zazzle has a sale on this weekend called the Columbus Day Sale. Use code 1492COLUMBUS to receive 14.92% off your order.

What a gorgeous day today, the sun is shining and the sky is so blue! No matter how much sleep you've had the sun makes you feel brighter and more alert. I haven't had a great nights sleep in about 3 weeks again. Can't wait til this insomnia passes... can anyone relate? If anyone has any great remedies or tips please do tell! Oh well, I don't let it stop me from being creative and coming up with new designs for my store. This week I've been working on some cute holiday fashion designs kind of to go with the shoe theme from last week. Some trendy handbags in holiday colors. I've put these designs on postage, business cards, t-shirts, mugs etc. Lots of cute gift ideas. Stop by for a visit to see more of my creations.
