The process of creating the “Yellow Teddy Bear Floral Calendar”

Teddy Bear Sunflower 1863 Collage Calendar

Transforming a beautiful photograph of a fluffy, pillowy looking bright yellow Teddy Bear Sunflower into a stunning 12 page calendar. Each month of the calendar features a new graphic art designed from this incredible floral photo shown on the last page.

Once an image is selected:

  • 14 total patterns for each wall calendar are composed
  • each new pattern is sized to fit the calendar page
  • patterns are chosen and named for each month in the files for easier uploading
  • collages are created for the front and sometimes the back of each calendar
  • 12 prints are then uploaded to the online calendar – one for each month, as well as the cover and back pages
  • khoncepts.com is inconspicuously added to the very bottom of each design

and yes, I love the entire process and thought it’s be even more entertaining to learn how to create and also add music, appropriate to the pattern.

Sunday Sales Summary: Island life

Popular postcards featuring Hawaii and Sint Maarten
Last week’s popular product sales summary

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.

Fashion Friday: Khoncepts black and purple gym gear

My version of an ideal world would have been to make a full recovery from cancer surgery and be able to focus on being a happy creative. My current world however, is re-discovering how to use hundreds of existing designs on new products until I’m able to get back on track. This is actually a better use of my time, as now, I’m much more in line with coordinating outfits rather than just a one and done.

Re-visiting old designs has been very helpful as I know have to check to see if my older prints are even still online. Some shops tend to discontinue items and/or will redo their website eliminating a ton of products. I won’t mention which store did that this year but it’s been so much fun adding them back – Not!

One example of pulling together items from two of my online shops is this eye catching black, purple, green and blue print yoga pant with matching sneakers, sports bra, tote bag and rain jacket.  Fashion Friday, “classy and fabulous”.

Wet, tropical, Boston December morning

I arrived to my destination a hot, wet, sticky mess due to the almost tropical damp Boston weather this morning, the day before Christmas. I enjoy almost two miles of beautiful scenery each morning and always wear walking clothes because I know I will need to change out of them into dry “work” outfits.

Below are 15 colorful, holiday photos I took using my iPad Pro on a very dreary, December morning. I have no idea who or what I’d be if I couldn’t take pictures of things that bring a smile to my face and elevates my spirit.

What grounds you and brings special joy to your life?
