For years, my family has endured my fondness of taking foodie photos before anyone can eat their meal. I was a foodie photographer before it even became a thing lol.
Recently, one of my brothers and I had to travel to Maryland to relocate our Dad from an assisted living facility to the DC/VA Hospital Community Living Center. We rewarded ourselves with a quick bite to eat at Johnny Pistolas in Adams Morgan, DC. We were fortunate to arrive before the dinner rush hour and were seated at a table right by the window that had the perfect lighting for a food photo.
As an added bonus, not only did the quesadilla photograph nicely, it was quite delicious!
Shopping in stores is not my favorite way to spend a few hours. Browsing for hours online, praying I find something I like, with my colors and in my size is my second least favorite activity. What I do LOVE, is deciding what I want to wear from items in my shops and designing them to match my accessories such as boots, shoes or pants.
I also feel it’s important to periodically purchase items from my shops, checking for quality, color and shipping issues if any. I can absolutely recommend these hooded pullover sweatshirts. I have two from my Artsadd shop (one featured by me above) and this time, I ordered two of the zip up hoodies styles.
They have a bit of stretch being made of Polyester and some Spandex and are quite comfy. Oh, and the pullover sweatshirt has a front pocket.
Send me your favorite colors, the text or name you’d like to feature and let’s create something special for you. Shipping is free and takes about three weeks.
Pink Cabbage Rose 5080 inspires a wide variety of beautiful array of home decor, fashion, gift items and matching packaging.
Last year, I designed several colorful 12 page wall calendars ( or 14 if counting the front and back). The front of each calendar features all of the beautiful color prints for each month of the year. However, producing loads of new work after a complicated thyroid surgery is proving to be extremely challenging so the smartest thing for me is – adding matching products to – existing patterns.
It’s been a mixed ‘blessing’ having such a serious medical condition. I’m unhappy how I’ve been sidelined due to pain issues, but amazed at how having to really focus my efforts have made a smarter impact on the end results. Rather than adding one design to tons of product categories, one design will now include matchinggift packaging: gift bags, wine gift boxes, tissue paper and greeting cards. It’s never too late to smarten up. 🙂
Pretty hot pink Bougainvillea plant inspired this stunning boho dress and these beautiful gift bags. It took awhile to adjust the photo to properly fit the medium and large size gift bags but the end results came out amazingly well.
Photo was taken in Ochos Rios, Jamaica.
P.S. I think this style dress would look fantastic on former First Lady, Michelle Obama.

I’m enjoying the thought of downsizing to a new home where I can design and showcase my art with a lovely view of the mountains to the West and the ocean to the North. My colorfully picturesque visit to Switzerland springs to mind for the summer months. 🙂
Khoncepts Framed “Blue and Green Paint Balls” wall art captures the many shades of blue representing the sky and ocean, complemented with meadows of green.
