DESERT RAT SKATEBOARDS

http://www.zazzle.com/saguaro_on_blue_skateboard-186386557000049498?complete=false&group=all&lifeStyle=comp_7_34&rf=238515376438929878

I have created a series of skateboard designs on Zazzle. Above is the link to one of them. From there, you can navigate to the others. I use 4 different cactus flower mandalas with a desert rat and cactus hugger theme. I will be expanding on the number of designs.
********
Creating the skateboard designs is the most challenging thing I have done on Zazzle, but I think I have found a fun theme to work with. I plan to use the desert rat theme for greeting cards and t shirts as well. I hope they bring a smile to your face. Let's spread some smiles.

PINCUSHION CACTUS FLOWER COMPOSITE WITH CARNEGIE QUOTE


Every week, I am posting what I call an illustrated thought of the week on Facebook. Most of the time, I use images and quotes or sayings that I have already posted on this blog. This week, however, I have a new pair.

A MOMENT TO CHERISH


I was also inspired to write this little piece I call A Moment to Cherish.

FLOWER POWER

This week, I saw a bumper sticker with the peace symbol and the words: Hippie Power.
That inspired me to play with the concept of flower power as a motto for my flower mandalas.
*******
I then wrote the little poem you see here and paired it with the rainbow mandala.

I am going to design a bumper sticker with the rainbow mandala and the words: Flower Power. You will find them on Zazzle.
*******
On Zazzle, I have turned this into a poster, greeting cards, t shirt, and postage stamp.
