Happy Birthday cute monkey greetingcard card
(you can click on the image to view or buy this card)

Yesterday, this cute monkey received a today's best award! It's a squirrel monkey. I love these monkey's, they are so cute and fun to watch.

I do find it difficult to photograph them though, since they are so tiny and quick! This one is sitting on a tree trunk over a water stream. He looked at me, right before bending down to take a sip op water!

Two Today's Best Awards on one day!

Yesterday I had a nice surprise. When I was looking at the Today's Best Awards for that day, I suddenly noticed my "luv you, zebra card"! Such a surprise!! It was my Mom's idea to make a "luv you" card with the zebra photograph, so all credits go to her!

Later that day, I started getting congrats comments, not only on the "luv you" card, but also on my "protect wildlife" magnet. It had also won a TBA! Since I care so much about animal welfare and so on, I'm really happy this design got some attention.

This friendly zebra has really brought me luck! Here are the two "winners"

Over $12,000 raised by Zazzle's "Earthquake Relief" effort

Just read the great news on the Zazzle Blog: "The accountants did the final tally and the check is ready. Thanks to the efforts of everyone in the Zazzle Community that helped build the Support Earthquake Relief in Japan Store, there is now donated $12,507.35 to the Japanese Red Cross to aid recovery efforts following the terrible earthquake and tsunami"

I think that's so wonderful! Just to recap: Zazzle created the store and an official shirt, Sellers created their own special products and donated royalties, and customers donated by purchasing all of these items.

New Products!

Last week I went to a safari park together with my sister and my mom. It was really large and you could drive through with your car. We had a lot of fun! I have a 55m/200m zoom lens for my camera, so I was able to zoom in close and take some nice pictures!

So I'm busy creating new products, here are a few.

We noticed a bundle of orange and black and wondered what it was. Comming up close, we saw it was a group of wild african dogs. They were all cuddled-up together and sleeping.
I kept all products simple with just this photograph, so it's a series for nature lovers. Link to all products

Also with the zebra photograph, I came up with this design for protect wildlife awareness. I'm always happy when I can think of a design for animal issues, and I really liked how this one turned out. I am making this design in various colors. Click here for all protect wildlife products

You can change any of our existing stickers to a different shape by clicking on the customize button, and after that on "Choose your size and style". Some shapes require moving the images / text to make it fit.

Click on "Choose your size and style" on the right

Click on the shape you want, and make sure all the design items are placed correctly.

We have already created a few different shaped stickers. I had a nice surprise when looking at the Zazzle blog. In their post about the new sticker shapes, they have chosen two from our shop to showcase!
