to each person who visits my shops, shares my shop links and the ultimate – enjoys my eclectic view of life through photographic-art. Sharing these monthly summaries of purchases through my Zazzle shops provides me a visual overview of the “flavors of the month”. Travel images continue to be top sellers.
I’m extremely blessed to have been declared “cancer free”, 2 years after surgery. However the catch-22 is long distance traveling has been severely limited to one annual trip which I gladly accept and look forward to for as long as I’m physically able. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings all of us!
Sunday Sales Summary Smiles😊
While battling an aggressive virus for the past two weeks, I was still able to find a few big Smiles with each new customer purchase.
Clearly, with the exception of the car bumper sticker, the Travel images continue to be the top favorites. THANK YOU!💙
It’s totally amazing how, 7 and 9 years later these Hawaii and Sint Maarten postcard photographs continue to be favorites of clients worldwide. Do the images evoke fond memories? or are they shots of places they’ve visited and possibly are now enjoying a different viewpoint?
Thank you for the splendid purchases. You inspire me to continue seeing and snapping my version of the world.
My recent January birthday visit from Boston to Reykjavík, Iceland was fantastically different from my usual tropic locales. The stunning landscapes of snow and ice also brought back memories of an equally superb but sunny trip to the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii in 2009. My cousin was getting married at Turtle Bay resort and I managed to find a decent place to stay down the road as Turtle Bay prices were a bit much lol. The hotel was torn down a few years ago. I liked that it was right next door to MacDonald’s, the hotel had free Wi-Fi in the lobby, they served a continental breakfast, the city bus stop was right in front with a private path to the beach. Perfect in every way.
I actually had booked a return to Oahu birthday vacation package in 2015, however my Dad wasn’t doing well and I ended up cancelling and celebrating last year’s birthday in Maryland with my Dad, aunts, cousins and my oldest daughter.
I’m already saving and looking forward to my 2020, 65th birthday spending seven glorious days on a Hawaiian cruise with a layover in California to visit one of my brothers. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy watching Hawaii Five-0 and reviewing my 2009 photos. 🙂
Print all over me is one of four print on demand stores I use to design home decor, gifts and conversational wearable art. “Print All Over Me is an online platform for real-world collaboration and creation. We provide the tools that allow anyone to create, share, own, and produce their designs by uploading artwork that can be applied to seasonal collections of clothing and objects.”
Polyvore is a wonderfully visual tool for designers and those who need a bit of assistance picturing the end product. “Polyvore simplifies online shopping by bringing together all the stores in one convenient place. Then we curate it all into a personalized boutique just for you, making it even easier to discover and shop for looks you love.” Polyvore successfully allows me to pull designs from any of my stores and “curate” them into one creative board. It’s one thing to see the dress alone, however surrounding it with fashion options, dressy or casual and more enables possible buyers to experience an aha moment and quite possibly lets them picture how it would look on them.
Photography provides the initial first design step, stores such as Print All Over Me, provides the second by giving artists the ability to apply graphics like this photo of rocks I took in Oahu to be used as fashion. Polyvore provides the third step by letting us pull it all together in a visual and emotional, I want to have it manner.
