Blog Hop

Blog Hopping

Okay, to be perfectly honest I have no idea what blog hopping is- so maybe some of you can help me out. However, Tracey, one of my Australian customers made this adorable invitation using one of my animal prints and she told me it was going to be on this blog hop- so here is the card and the link to her blog- I think you HOP from there!!!

There are really tons of great ideas on her blog- it's tons of fun to look at!! So get hopping!!!

Christmas Clip Art

Christmas Clip Art

It is always hard for me to get geared up to do Christmas things before Halloween, but after 7 years in the stationery/invitation business- I guess I am used to it. My dealers used to ask me in July when my new holiday photocard album would be out. Little did they know I hadn't even started it yet!  So, I actually may be behind with my holiday graphics for Etsy, ArtFire and my website, but since I wasn't around last year doing this- I guess I will find out. 

Here are a few of the new clip art sets I have done and there is much more to come. I still have santas, snowmen, gingerbread houses, nutcrackers, ornaments, toys, and of course more backgrounds to work on. So if you have a request- send it my way, maybe you will inspire me to make a new set of something else I haven't thought of!  You know I always love your ideas- I get the best ones from my customers!
Hope you like the new Christmas clip art!  All the links on the pictures go to my website- but there are links on the sidebar to my Etsy and ArtFire shops.

For all my Aussie friends!

It's Summer in Australia

My youngest son left for an Australia adventure of working and playing for up to a year. He graduated from Auburn University in May and has always wanted to go to Australia. So took off- all by himself, (yes, it terrified me), but he is joined up with a company that helps young people plan their play and find short term jobs. So far mostly he has played- and having a ball. He LOVES Australia!  In talking to him on Skype, he keeps reminding me it is spring/summer there and it occurred to me that while I am busy making fall backgrounds, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas things-and starting to do some snowflakes, that I am leaving out some of my most loyal and wonderful customers. So in your honor, all my wonderful Aussie customers- here is a collection of summer graphics-just for you!

Click any image and it will take you to my new website to see more about each item. Everything is available on my website, my Etsy shop and my ArtFire shop.

Great Graphics Halloween Sets

Halloween Clip Art and Halloween Backgrounds

It's been awhile since I have had time to get anything posted, I have been busy working on the Great Graphics website, which is doing great, people seem to love that instant gratification of getting their download link right after their payment is cleared!  Not that I don't REALLY try to send out everyone's files as fast as I can- but the website is better than I am!

I have been working hard on all my holiday graphics. Here are a few of my Halloween sets. I will probably make a few more before Halloween actually gets here, so if anyone has any requests, you know I am always open to suggestions!  All the links below are to my website, but all the sets are available on Etsy as well.

I LOVE this one, I created my own damask pattern out of a pumpkin, cat face, 
witch's hat, bat wings and a ghost.
Here is a better look

Then of course there are ghosts, bats and spider webs!

Do you need some spooky cocktails to entice your guests?
Try these!

For all of you with little monsters- these guys can make a great, fun
and not too scary Halloween invitation or Halloween decorations

If witches are your thing you could try these boots on for size!

A great Halloween party idea is to have everyone over after Trick or Treating for
pizza or hamburgers and hot dogs. So this candy theme set would be a cool start
for a Trick or Treat Halloween Party

Here are some more Halloween Backgrounds for decorations or other
spooky Halloween crafts!

I hope everyone has a very Happy Halloween!!!
