Happiness Is Toying Around And Learning

I laugh when recalling my Mom telling us kids, "Why can't you leave well enough alone?" as we were tinkering with something that was interesting to us. 
You probably remember times when you just had to change something too. The color of your hair to something wild! Improve your car like adding fancy wheels when the brand new original ones would do just fine. 

Well, that was me with this close up photograph of an orchid. I decided to do some creative digital editing to the photograph. I decided to run it through a digital brushstroke filter and added a texture to the final edits. 

I've added the digital design to several products in my Zazzle Print on Demand store.  I share with you several of those products here. 

The first product below is a lightweight acrylic clock design made in the Acrylic Idea Factory in Tucson, Arizona. Since the number element is a template item you can clear it if you'd like this clock design without numbers. On the product page you can also click "Customize it!" to add text like a name or quote. 

These are vibrantly printed with AcryliPrint®HD process to ensure the highest quality display. Order this custom square (10.75") wall clock for your home or give to friends and family as a gift for a timeless treasure. You'll need to add a AA battery since it isn't included. 

The current average rating on Zazzle of the acrylic clocks overall it a 4.8 out of 531 reviews from customers who purchased them. I've ordered several and can attest to the vibrant printing.

Ditch Your Purse For A Custom Designed Clutch

I love the idea of a small bag when there is no need for my huge purse. 

Do you want to grab a few things and go? 
Don't want to carry that huge purse? 
How about an alternative clutch? 

You can carry your essentials in style with my designs on these hand-stitched linen clutch bags offered by Print on Demand company Zazzle and made by Banana Cottage in northern California. 

Each clutch is 9” wide x 5” long when folded and 9” wide x 8” long when opened.

I'm fond of the color combination yellow and orange whether in digital art or nature. These three clutch bags feature several of my colorful designs featuring that color combination. You can choose from six linen colors: teal, cinnamon, black, charcoal, indigo and eggplant
  • The first design is a mix of a silky orange fractal heart over a yellow background and orange digital art hearts. This is added on the charcoal linen clutch. 
  • The second clutch features the same orange digital heart designs over an orange background. This is on the black linen clutch.
  • The third clutch features a close up photograph of orange and yellow tulip petals. This is on the cinnamon linen clutch.
Remember you can select the linen color you want for any of these designs. 

Custom Orange Designed Clutch Bags 

Each clutch has a metal zipper close with a durable 100% cotton inner lining. A brown, genuine leather detachable wrist strap and a magnetic button for secure fold-over are on all clutch colors. These adorable bags are handmade in the USA. 

Softer Side Of Heart Clutch Bag

You can customize the cover flap with text by going into the "Customize it!" on the actual product page. It's easy to do but if you need help just contact me. This would be a great gift idea for someone you know.
