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.

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

*Scissors






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 :)
