Time travel... seems like forever ago

So I know it has been a small forever since I was here last, and for that I apologize. 

A good bit of my time has been spent conversing with two (or three) great groups I have found on facebook for vintage items.  

Genie Bottles, something my mom found and had around the house when I was small, appeal to me for many reasons, not the least of those the way the sun shines through the different colored glass bottles. I have met a really neat group mostly composed of collectors from Australia, which inspired a new digital painting  Genie Bottles from a photo of my bottles.

I had already done a series of  Mod Pop

and  Flower Power  designs

which had been added to my shops on  
Red BubbleFine Art America  and  Zazzle 

Then I found a group that collects, sells etc  vintage linens and bedding.  Seeing all the vintage linens and retro designs made me smile and gives me inspiration for even more new projects for my shop on   Spoonflower  where I design fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper.

I have also connected with quite a few Mid-Century Modern collectors which no doubt will lead my mind off on some future designs as well.  

Inspiration comes from lots of places and along the way I have made some new friends.  Hopefully my creative time will become even more useful as I continue to interact with these fun groups and they share their collections with me. 

Have a groovy day, go with the flow, keep on keepin' on and to quote someone I met this week  "Right on Right on!"

I am sorry I have been absent for a while, unfortunately it happens when you are a wife and mom first and a blogger second.  But, I did want to come and share a feature I have been given on Karmani Designer Lifestyle.

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.

Changes are afoot

Changes for db visual arts and where my cards and gifts will be available.  I have closed my account with Greeting Card Universe and will be concentrating on other venues.  I will post links as those are carried out and hope you will continue to follow my artist friends as I share their cards.  I am sorry for the slow posts as of late, but, I do hope to get back into full swing very soon.  Thank you for your interest and patience.

Recently I joined a group on Fine Art America that focuses on creating Scripture cards and artwork. This challenged me to collect the work I had already done and create new images.  Here are a few of the offerings I have on Fine Art America.  Please feel free to look through my galleries, or contact me through my store.  Thank you so very much.

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.
