Mermaid First Birthday Party Invitations

*sigh* I just spent the last three hours searching for some pre-made clip art without a very restrictive commercial use license agreement. I thought I found a few that I was interested in, but after hitting purchase, I found out that there was a few pages of terms of agreement on the checkout cart. AHHHH! *virtual scream*

So, I totally get why there are limitations. I would be adding the same limitations to my own, if I offered any. This just means instead of getting products added faster, it's just gonna take a little longer. I will have to hand draw and create each and every item offered in the shop. This takes so much time because I still work a full time day job Monday-Friday like most of you. The weekends are the only time I have free to design new items. Besides, Legal contracts and such just make me a little bit nervous. It's best to just stick with my own.

HAHA...after that little bit of venting I would like to introduce you to my newest offering in my Zazzle Shop.
Yes, this is my own artwork. Hand drawn and digitally colored. She can only be found exclusively in my Zazzle Shop. This little pink haired mermaid was created with pencil and ink on card stock, scanned into Photoshop, and then digitally colored. The whole image is one drawing. The number one text can't be changed, but the rest of the fonts and text are fully customizable. This would be a sweet invitation for any mermaid loving little girl. Background color can also be changed. The two pre-selected colors in the shop are dark navy blue and a lighter blue as shown below.

Graduation Nurses Pinning Ceremony Invitations

Hot off the virtual presses! My 2019 Nurses Pinning Ceremony Invitations. All are available in my Zazzle Shop.

So here is a little background history for you, I have been a graphic designer for well over 8 years now. I took graphic design classes and started my first official job in 2011. I have been employed in the graphics field since that time. Why it took me so long to start offering my card designs to others beyond my 9-5 "regular" job I'll never know. But my passion for expanding my online shop is hot and heavy. :)
I have made several graduation cards over the years and nurse pinning event invitations just never for online purchase. Anyway, you get the idea. So without further ado, here are a few of my new designs. All text can be altered, it is customizable. The colors of fonts and background is also adjustable.

Cute Pandas Illustration available now

I have had horrible results when working with illustrator. Out of all of the adobe products I work in illustrator was with out a doubt my weakest program. Well I am proud to say this isn't the case anymore. I still have a lot to learn, but I think I am improving immensely. This is now the third graphic set created entirely in illustrator.

These pandas are now available in my online shop. Customizable invitations, baby items, cell phone cases, and pretty much whatever you want because the designs can easily be transferred onto other items.

As always, if there is a product you would like to see these graphics on and don't know how to transfer them over, just message me and I will add it to the shop.

Bunny Paper Craft

This is a very easy to make paper bunny craft that would be fun for spring or Easter. Easy for kids to make. You might want to cut out the pieces first before letting them start making their bunnies.

The following materials are what you will need:

*Various scrap paper.
I used some left over pieces of white card stock and construction paper.

*Colored ink pens, markers, or crayons.
I used ink pens because I couldn't find my markers. : )

*Some glue


Cut out a Long Egg Shape for the bunnies body.

Cut out two smaller elongated shapes for the ears.

I was just going to color inside the ears, but the ink pens I picked didn't work well on the white cardstock. So I cut out smaller ear shapes with the pink construction paper.

Glue the construction paper pieces into the ears.

While the ears dry a little bit, get out your pens or crayons. Whatever you have available will work.

Draw a cute little heart with your pen, I used a red color. This makes the bunnies nose. I drew two swirl shapes under the nose to make the bunnies mouth.

With a different colored marker, draw in two eyes.

Draw in Whiskers! : )

Then glue the paper ears onto the back of the bunnies body.

You can draw various flowers directly on the bunnies body or cut out paper flowers with your construction paper.
How ever you feel you would like to finish the bunny.

You're done! That was easy :)

Vinyl Stickers and Tshirts Yeah!

Ok, Just what everyone wanted! Stickers are now available on Redbubble. Oh yeah, there are also shirts.

I decided to start offering different ordering options for my artwork from this point in my journey going forward.
I was a member of redbubble years ago, somewhere around 2007 or 2008. I was looking for different online options for selling my artwork. The site wasn't well know at that time and my artwork was not as defined either. My sales were extremely low. I lost interest in the site and honestly forgot about them as an option.

Fast forward into the future.
I have greatly improved upon my artwork and redbubble it seems has evolved into a hip and happening place to find shirts and stickers.

I haven't lost hope in spreading the cuteness of my little doodles with the world. Hi world! *waves*

So check out my options, buy those stickers, paste them on water bottles, laptops, computers, tablets, etc.
Here are just a few available in my shop.

Pink Unicorn Sticker

Woodland Fox

Cute Cat Stickers!

Cute Cat Shirts!
