Chalkboard style wedding invitations

Wedding invitations? Really? From a self-described graphic design junky whose primary design offerings are girls' sports related? Yes! If you've been following my blog, you know that my designs are quite diverse. Since my start at Zazzle, I've been in awe of all of the gorgeous wedding invitations available at Zazzle, especially the currently popular chalkboard-style invitation cards--in particular the most realistically chalky-look invitations. And that's what I've been working on lately ... perfecting that chalk-drawn-look wedding invitation that would be perfect for the rustic, outdoor or country-themed wedding.

Sporty dorm room decor

Congratulations graduate! Ace that graduation gift for the female high school athlete heading off to college ... these customizable pillows will add personality and a punch of color to her dorm room decor. Having ordered two of these pillows myself as gifts for family members, I found the polyester fabric to be super soft and the print colors perfectly vibrant. I would guess that the pillows could also withstand a bit of college life roughhousing, too :)

Golly, what a day!

Seriously, that's what I'd be sayin' if I had a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S6! Of course I'm referring to the "Friends Furever" Android ad with the adorable unlikely animal friends frolicking to the Roger Miller tune "Oo-De-Lally" from the 1973 animated Disney movie "Robin Hood." This is my most favorite advertisement EVER, and apparently many others agree as it has over 16 million views on YouTube. If you haven't seen it, wait no longer ... go ahead ... add a view (or 12) ...



Did you catch the dog's expression when his crazy orangutan friend comedically falls to the ground on his back? Dog's like, "Yeah, he does that sometimes." Priceless.

So, back to the new S6 ... sadly, I do not have one (I'm still rockin' a 3-year-old flip phone), but girls, if you need a sporty case for yours, you may find just what you're looking for here at katzdzynes ... fun girls' sports Tough cases by Case-Mate ... softball ... basketball ... volleyball ... tennis ... soccer ... fully customizable and ready to personalize at Zazzle with your name and/or jersey number. Click here to see my collection of girls' sports Samsung S6 cases at the katzdzynes Zazzle shop.

Maybe sports isn't your thing? Click here to browse the ever-growing gallery of fun and trendy Samsung Galaxy S6 cases at Zazzle.

But to keep that warm fuzzy, friendly feeling going, I'll leave you with this ...

My first Zazzle sales

Truth be told, my first product offerings at Zazzle were not too popular. After a few months, though, sales finally started trickling in, beginning with this nature-themed stationery featuring the silhouette of a majestic Great Blue Heron fishing in tall marsh grass at the water's edge, a composite of elements from a couple of my own kayaking photographs.

This Kayak Christmas Tree greeting card was my next sale, a design that has been one of my most popular - my KCT Christmas ornaments are a big favorite. A lot of work went into getting the colors and shading just right to get that kayaks-are-really-stuck-in-the-snow look.

Hi, my name is Kathy, and I'm a graphic design junky.

Very briefly ... I consider myself neither an artist nor a graphic designer, but I sure do enjoy creating unique digital graphics designs that I think others might also like, and my efforts thus far have earned me inclusion in an amazingly creative and inspiring community ... Zazzle ProDesigners. My first graphics projects way back when were greeting cards from card-creating software ... hmmm ... upgraded to new software in which I could add my own digital pictures ... okay ... another software upgrade so I could edit digital images in practically any way imaginable? Yes! And with Zazzle I could open my own online store, create 1000s of products featuring my designs, and earn a royalty from each sale? Nice! So, now here we are. My favorite designs are my sports-themed graphics collages and the composites I've created combining elements from some of my own photos. But inspiration is drawn from many sources, and you just never know what I might create next. Enjoy your visit!
