Just a bunch of old fashioned Christmas Greeting Cards


I've been promoting a lot of Christmas products from Zazzle artists and I almost forgot to promote some of mine! Here it is! It's just a few Christmas Greeting Cards. Many of these were bought by customers many times.

This year I didn't create many Christmas themed products because I lacked the time for it.I've been exploring digital collage instead. I published several of my collage creations already. You can find it at my alternative store that's called PAPELUSTRO.

In PAPELUSTRO store you can find two lines of products created for the holiday season featuring two birds commonly associated with Christmas:

1. The Robin red-breast bird
2. The red cardinal bird

Rock around the clock and pick one wall clock to track time

Hello again!

Let's rock around the clock! Are you familiar with this song from Bill Haley & His Comets? This band was an American Rock&Roll band founded in 1952. It was the earliest group of white musicians to bring Rock&Roll to the attention of white America and the rest of the world. Bill Haley was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Today I'm into wall clocks. In the digital age, many rely on smartphones but a funny, romantic,  cool, classic, or crazy wall clock can add both function and style to any wall in your house or office. Round or square, at Zazzle you'll find an ideal clock that can be used in any room of the home, from the kitchen to the bedroom or at your working place. Zazzle wall clocks come in all manner of styles, ranging from practical to whimsical. You'll see clocks in a wide variety of colors and motifs so it's easy to pick one and give your walls a fun pop of color or add to the atmosphere of a room .

There are those who prefer the classic style with Roman numerals while others just want easy-to-read numbers. Some will go for minimalism others perhaps enjoy a more personalized clock that matches décor. One thing I am sure: in every home there should be a wall clock. It can be analog or digital as long it's an accurate timekeeper.  Luckily at Zazzle there is plenty clocks to choose from and these I am showing you bellow are just a small sample that caught my attention! And they make excellent gifts also!

Christmas in Australia: baby it's cold outside but the kangaroo doesn't care



There's a forgotten part of the Australian landscape where snow is abundant.The alpine region of Australia stretches through New South Wales and into Victoria. No kangaroos there that I'm aware but I might be wrong. I live on the other side of the world! 

This kangaroo is decorating a pine tree under the falling snow. The bubble and soft tones make this digital collage look like a dream, a fantasy. This product is ideal for the holiday season and it was an entry to the #createarthistory challenge.

Kangaroo illustration is from John White's, Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, 1790, a book with sixty-five plates of non-descript animals, birds, lizards, serpents, curious cones of trees and other natural productions by John White Surgeon-General to the Settlement. In this page you can have a close look at the kangaroo and a full description of the animal, these are just a few lines : "The proportions of some of the parts of this animal bear no analogy to what is common in most others. The disproportions in the length between the fore legs and the hind are very considerable; also in their strength, yet perhaps not more than in the Jerboa. This disproportion between the fore legs and the hind is principally in the more adult; for in the very young, about the size of a half-grown rat, they are pretty well proportioned; which shews that at the early period of life they do not use progressive motion."

As for John White: "in 1788 White was appointed Surgeon-General of New South Wales and organised a hospital for the new colony, somewhat hampered by a lack of medical supplies. He became interested in the native flora and fauna of the new land and investigated the potential of Australian plants for use as medicine. He observed the olfactory qualities of eucalyptus and distilled eucalyptus oil in 1788. Wikipedia" I found this interesting article about him. It says that the book mentioned before, one of the important First Fleet Journals, it was the first substantial natural history book on Australia.

The tree in the illustration isn't a real pine tree, it's a digital collage and it was made from a John Sims botanical illustration of a flower. The red Christmas balls are my creation.

If you liked this digital collage you can find products with this illustration at the following online stores:
