If you or someone you know loves Scottish Terriers, I am sure you can find something interesting.  From cards to wrapping paper and pillows there are many different designs created from Vintage postcards and photographs.

Is anyone still reading?

First of all, I do apologize for the long delay in a new post.  I am plugging away trying to work on new products and miss opportunities to come here and update.

Still no website, though the priority to get it done has been bumped up a bit.  New products on Zazzle keep we artists busy trying to keep up.  I will do my very best to update with some of those in this coming week.

In the meanwhile, enjoy the lovely fall colors and cooling temperatures!  It won't be long 'til the white stuff starts flying and we hear the bells of the holidays.

Breaking away from Facebook

I have taken a break from Facebook for a good little bit now, and it has been a good thing.  I still check in on friends and family but rarely spend the time there I have in the past.
My projects at home have taken priority and yet I am still seeing decent sales online.
I will try to update soon with some of my latest sales and new products.
Thank you for following!!

Coffee and Tea Cups with Inspirational Photography

This is a peek into my newest store named Cuppa Faith Mugs. It will feature coffee and tea mugs exclusively with scripture , inspirational messages and photographs or digital art.

In the store, under each design, you will notice "see on 7 styles" (look on photo below for the arrow message) if you click on that link it will take you to other variations showing different types and sizes of mugs, and on some give you more color choices for the handles or insides of the mugs.

Zazzle mugs are great quality and I have been extremely well pleased with those I have purchased myself. They should be hand-washed for longevity of the images, but that is to be understood. These are exclusive to Zazzle so you won't find them any where else.

Changes at Zazzle How to find our products

Zazzle has been making some changes to our stores.

Under some products you will see the notation to see on x number of styles, under some you will read see on x number of products.  (See the examples below - click photo to enlarge)  

The first is what the store page looks like now. 

The second is the page you see when you click - see on x number of styles.  It shows the different styles of the same product, in this case t-shirts. 

The third photo is what you would see if you click on - see on x number of products.  It will reveal the products that carry the same design.

Vintage Portrait Postcards for Art-Correspondence

Looking for unique postcards that you could also use as artwork?  These new postcards in my Morning Glory Memories Zazzle store could be exactly what you need.

Vintage images which have been freshened up, then presented in a way that will preserve them for another generation.  On the Bathing Beauties, a color from the bathing suit accents the image, on the black and white images a white border and a silver-toned digital frame was placed around the image. For the romantic couples an antique gold-tone- frame completes the look.  

The digital frame can serve as a finishing touch for simply pinning up the cards or can provide another element of interest if the cards are framed in a real frame.

I have hundreds of images and will be adding more, but for now, please visit my store at the following link and enjoy these lovely vintage images.

Scripture and Photography Calendar NEW on Zazzle

My first love in creating cards is to use my photography and choose Scripture to go with the image. I have just finished this 2013 Scripture Photography Calendar that does just that. Each month has one of my original photographs along with a Scripture verse that was chosen specifically for that photo. On the side and bottom are panels for writing additional notes you may have during the month. Beautiful, but also very functional. Photos were taken in Bristol, Tennessee with the exception of July, which was taken in Abingdon, Virginia. The images were replaced on this index sheet so you can see them more clearly, the calendar pages look blurry here but of course are not on the actual calendar. You can enlarge the photo, though visiting Zazzle will give you a better view. Also you can read the verses which are posted below the images here on the blog. Thank you for reading!

To visit my Zazzle store and see this calendar and more please follow this link:
