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!
