My family is almost used to photographic style by now. In the beginning they could never understand why I was taking photos of stones, walls, bricks, beach sand and rocks. Now they get me lol.
Polyvore also gets me and others like me. I’m able to “clip to polyvore”, one of my art pieces to a new set collage and then spend a few hours choosing images to totally re-create the ambiance of the room.
Everything shown in the collage was added, including the color of the wall. Polyvore collages, once published, shows each item and where it can be purchased. Finished collage sets can also be shared to various social media including WordPress. I also email myself a copy for my files, open the email, download it to my iPad and then post it to Instagram.
It sounds time consuming, however, I’m five months into painful, post surgery recovery and find the entire process, soothing, creatively entertaining and a great marketing tool, in a non salesy manner.

I usually choose Blog, uncheck all the items not created by me and then copy the text and post in a WordPress blog draft.
Once I choose a date to schedule the post, I add the information to my Google Calendar which gives me a 30 day view of my scheduled blog posts. This is especially helpful to be sure I’m only featuring one graphic art print each week and not jumping to a new print in the same week.

Currently, I’m working to recover from a very difficult and painful part one of post surgery for thyroid cancer. Looking at my existing designs, in new ways, such as Curioos brings a bit of joy during the one or two hours a day that I can sit up and focus. 🙂

Health wise, it’s been one heck of a year for me. What was hoped to be a routine partial removal of an enlarged right thyroid turned into a diagnosis of follicular cancer. Ninety days later, I’m still recovering and am in pain management therapy which is why, after 11 years of opening a shop on Cafepress.com it remains such a thrill to continue seeing emails popping into my Inbox saying “You’ve made a sale! Way to go!” 🙂
Thank you to my customer in Massachusetts for your multiple purchases. So glad the collage spoke to you.
Elegant, black, white and red bedroom graphic print design bedroom accessories for him and her. Black, white and red bedroom decor patterns that please both him and her makes for a harmonious environment. The elliptical design was created using Paint, found in my basic computer programs. It took a few entertaining hours of drawing the shapes and then deciding where to add the red and black colors so they didn’t overlap. It’s one of my absolutely favorite graphic prints.
