LOVE Series from Auntie Shoe

Auntie Shoe’s The LOVE Series at Red Bubble

The LOVE Series, or #TheLoveSeries, happens to be a collection of designs by Auntie Shoe (that would be me, the writer of this blog post). What all the designs have in common is the word LOVE in two lines, in a square.

Well, more or less a square. Your Auntie doesn’t measure exactness in these things.

That said, the O in the word LOVE in the series is a heart shaped flag of a particular country. Belgium, USA, Ireland, they all have their own LOVE design at various print-on-demand sites. Isn’t that cool? And, Auntie Shoe is having just a ton of fun making new stuff with this theme.

In her Red Bubble account, the designs are all the same, except for the heart shaped flag. Here is an example:

It is not just pillows, but many other products, too. You can get tote bags, t-shirts, phone cases, mugs and a lot more. And, there are several designs in Auntie Shoe’s Red Bubble area already. But, first, you just GOTTA see the leggings:

What makes The LOVE Series at Auntie Shoe’s Red Bubble so different from others? Take a look at what they have in common. The design is white letters on a red background (they are available at RED BUBBLE, right? Get it? …Giggle…)

All the entries in Auntie Shoe’s The LOVE Series on her Red Bubble page are the same design, just the heart shaped flag changes.

“Why?” you ask.

Reasonable query it is, too. Is there a big story to this? Not really. Your virtual Auntie Shoe put a red background on one of the designs. The same design was using white letters. It all looked soooooo cool, it just seemed like a new series had found a home.

The contrast between the white and the dark red was so lovely, it just had to go on lots of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff.

Some designs are tiled on certain products. Why? Because they looked icky otherwise. Trust your Auntie Shoe on this, it was ICKY. So, the leggings, the duvet cover, studio pouches, and laptop skins are all tiled. Looks better. LOTS better.

Currently, there are eight of The LOVE Series designs on Auntie Shoe’s Red Bubble page. There will be LOTS more added in the coming weeks.

Also, look for variations of this theme at other PODs. But those will be discussed later.

Word Press, the blogging system the Guild uses occasionally has various updates. The newest update did some stuff that necessitates some testing. The purpose of this post is to be sure that future postings to this blog are also sent to our accounts at Tumblr, Twitter and our Facebook page.

To test all this requires a post. Lookie here! This is a post.

Again, this is only a test.

Custom Car Mats

Cute Custom Car Mats

I’m excited about the new custom car mats that you can buy to spiffy up your car and make it look so cute.

I designed this mat with the darling black silhouette cats and a lovely Monarch butterfly. The background is gray. I created my car mat so that if you click on the customize and edit buttons, there is a selection to change the background color. So if you don’t like a gray background, you can pick whatever color you want. There are many available.

Another option is to add some customizable personal text to your mats. Zazzle makes adding custom text easy. These would make a cool gift for someone you know that could use some new mats.

 

There are cute custom car mats to fit every style.  Here is a nice variety of mats that don’t have cats and many are customizable. You can add your Initial to the monogram style car mat. I hope you find the perfect mat you are looking for.

Where My Heart Lives

I wanted to create a happy design, something that is completely me and carefree. What do I see that makes me feel happy and smile? One of the 1st things I thought of was a beautiful spring day with bright blue sky and little puffy clouds. Another thing that makes me happy is the sight of a big beautiful rainbow in the sky, so in my minds eye, there was the beginning of a little design forming. Now some people just hate pastels, but I love pastel tones, they make me feel happy and girlie. I also love hearts, hearts of every shape and size and pastel hearts I love better than red hearts.

I thought of my design for a couple of weeks and then I decided to sign up to Society6.  Society6 is a small POD company compared to places like Zazzle and CafePress and have a limited number of products.  I added a tropical fish design and then I added my happy design I had been working on for a few days.

I think my cute little design also makes an adorable throw pillow. Now at Society6 you have a choice of just buying a pillow cover or a cover with the pillow insert!

Train Your Cat Lady At An Early Age

Is there a sweet baby girl in your family that just loves kitties?

Well maybe she is so little she doesn’t know she loves kitties yet. Here is a fun way to get her started to a lifetime of purry love and start your sweet girl on her way to be a modern cat lady when she grows up.

Teach your child how much fun it is to love and care for a wonderful cat or kitten. The bond with a pet is a wonderful gift to give to a child. Now your baby needs some fashion to show her new found love of kitty cats.

This adorable little infant creeper has multi-colored cat paws and customizable text that currently reads: Future Cat Lady.

The design can be customized to delete some of these paw prints if there are too many for you and you can change the text to say whatever you want.

Along with those great customizing choices, you can also select this on a T-shirt for any age or another baby style.

Now this shirt is very similar to the previous style, you can change out the paw prints and text, but this also has 2 paw prints on the back of the design.
A sweet I Love Kitties design with customizable text, paws on the front and back too.
This design is also available with purple paws
and also with pink paws.
All the fashions can be purchased on any of the styles available in the shop including childrens, womens, junior and mens.

Fun With Fractals

A fractal design is a geometric pattern that is generated with a digital graphics program. By changing the mathematical equations, the image on the screen changes to sometimes odd and many times beautiful patterns.

I am really enjoying creating these designs and they are fun to see how they look on phone cases, iPad cases, bags and more. Learning new designs styles is a lot of fun and can be challenging too.

Here is an example of a fractal design that appears to have a few pink flowers and the pattern almost looks like it has sections with lace on it.

Now you can see that the same design on a pillow looks similar but at the same time, very different from how it looks on an iPod case.

I was thrilled with this fractal design. I think this one looks antique and feminine. I has a pretty green background with little pink flowers and areas of the design that glows. It is an enchanting and beautiful pattern.

This colorful fractal design has a mystical feel and has several interesting shapes in it. I think that looking at a fractal design and seeing shapes is similar to seeing shapes in the clouds of the sky. What I see in this designs are wings at the top section, a heart near the center and a butterfly near the bottom.

What do you see?

Loving Bobby Ewing

This is a new shop for me, with hardly anything in yet. But more will be coming soon. For starters, though, I created a design in honor of my favorite guy on the TV show, “Dallas”. That would be, Bobby Ewing.

I have to admit that while Mr. Ewing has aged a bit in the last 35 years or so, his hotness has only gotten better. The man still sizzles!

That said, let’s take a look at the products you can get proclaiming your feelings for the handsome, sweet and stink’n rich, Mr. Ewing.

You can see all these products and many more by visiting my shop at cafepress.com/fanstastic or clicking here.

First up, we have a lovely black 3/4 length tee to keep you warm because Bobby can’t be there to do it for you. You can buy it by clicking on the picture or here.

For all you “Dallas” fans, you know the whiskey is never forgotten. To make sure you always have your emergency shot, here is a flask necklace with “I LOVE BOBBY EWING” written on it. The word “love” is replaced with, you guessed it, a Texas flag heart. You were thinking maybe it should be Arizona? to purchase click here or on the picture below.

Third, we have a heart shaped necklace to help you share the Bobby Ewing love thing. You can have it for your very own, or for mom as a gift, by clicking on the picture underneath or here.

Last, and you HAD to know this one was coming, a SHOWER CURTAIN! Yes, indeed, you KNOW this one just had to be. And only long-time “Dallas” fans will understand why. Buy it now by clicking here or on the picture underneath.
