I love my new mason jar

This is a mason jar that is printed on all 4 sides with my own image of a black gothic fanged skull silhouette. It is not the version with the handle though I can add one to my store. I love this because I just love dark things and I planned to use it as a vase for black silk flowers for Halloween in my bedroom. Where else can you find a country style jar with a Gothic twist.

A couple of real life photos follows. This was taken on a phone as my camera is still packed from my most recent move. So the picture quality is not that great. sorry about the pictures being sideways

Pretty Christmas serving tray

It has been a while since I updated my blog. I like to post reviews of things I bought from my Zazzle store here. I went for a long time without purchasing anything only because I had to ride out some storms in my life. Things are settling down now and I bought something the other day. It was something I would not even had thought to order at all. I got it cause I liked how the design looked on the finished item in the sample picture. I wanted to see how it would look like in real life. Oh my God! Eye poppingly gorgeous! I would have never known how pretty it was until I bought it. Well worth the money in my opinion for something that is unique and original and that not everyone else has. This tray starts out as a blank white background with a black frame. I placed 3 of my original heart drawings on it in red and white against a black background and placed the letters J-O-Y in them. I love non typical Christmas decor. I even own a black Christmas tree with Gothic ornaments. But I am gravitating towards a Red, white, and black color scheme this year. I just think the colors are so striking and look so elegant together. Here are a couple of pictures of my new tray.
The tray can be found here The surface of the artwork is so super shiny. I love how this looked and I plan to hang this on the wall in the kitchen or dining room as It is too pretty not to show it off. If you decide you want one, click above. You can also remove my picture and replace with a family photo and add your own wording. It truly is a work of art. I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season.

Cute damask personalized monogram candy jar

I ordered a personalized jar full of jelly beans. I am so happy with the way it turned out. This little 3 inch tall glass jar is so adorable. I only wish my camera was working to take a picture. The printing on the lid turned out so clean and clear. There is a texture you can feel on the lid. Just wanted to say that this was well worth it for me as it is personal. I always had a hard time with my name because I was teased terribly for it all my child and teen years. I had been so ashamed of it that I started calling myself by a new name and it stuck all these years. Well I decided I am going to put the shame behind me once and for all, and forgive those who made fun of my name all those years ago. I ordered this jar to put on my desk proudly as a declaration that I accept my name finally. The candy only sweetens my name. And those jelly beans were good. Yum. This jar is very well made and looks like it came from an expensive boutique. Makes a pretty gift idea too. And if anyone is reading this and wondering what my name is, it is "Lorelei".

My dry erase board from Zazzle arrived today!

Wow is all I can say. The dry erase boards are so nice in person. It looks to be of a really nice quality. I was expecting something more of the type that school kids use but I was very pleasantly surprised. There is a piece of acrylic in front of my artwork with a white backing. It looks like glass, seriously. On the back are 3 pieces of double sided tape. I plan to glue a magnetic sheet to the back to use on the fridge. I think these would make really great Christmas gifts. Anyways it is a design in my store that I recently did for a Halloween themed gothic wedding. It has some black damasks motifs on a gray background with blood splatters here and there. Here are a few quick phone pictures of it. The glare on it is the tv. This is the medium size.

Here is the backside. I kinda got it at a weird angle. I assure you that it is a perfect rectangle though.
Here it is in my store

Pictures of a Zazzle clock

This is the medium sized round wall clock from my daughter's store on Zazzle. I bought this so she could give it as a gift to her dad. It is a blue background with lightning. The pictures here do not do it justice at all. It looks way better than shown here in my photos. The backing on it is black plastic. Here, you can see the edge. The artwork is covered in a thick acrylic layer. Not like the photo sculptures where the artwork is sandwiched between 2 pieces of acrylic. The clock is not like them.
Here is the front. My pic is a bit blurry. I can assure you that the clock turns out sharper than shown here.
Here it is in my daughter's store.

My Bagettes wristlet arrived!

Wow, I am so excited to get my new wristlet today. This is my gothic punk fleur de lis damask pattern in pinks and purples on black that I made a while back and I have ordered it on several items, (scroll down) cause I like the coloring. Thought it would look great on the Bagettes wristlet on Zazzle. This item turned out how it shows on Zazzle. The colors printed out just as seen. I am thrilled with it. I am enclosing an iPhone pic of it here. The picture quality is not the greatest and it looks more saturated.
Here's a scan of the front

My new mugs and teapot

It has been a while since I last posted. I have recieved my jumbo mug today from my Zazzle store and I am thrilled with it. I bought it to see how it would turn out. It's a nice heavy mug. I may use it as a pen and pencil holder on my desk though. The reason is because I have so many mugs already. This mug measures 4.5 inches high. I can imagine this will hold alot of soup, chili...mmmm. Put a certain brand of corn chips (starts with an "F", don't know if I am allowed to say it here) in the bottom, then open a can of chili (how cheap is that?) dump it in and sprinkle with cheese and microwave it. Sounds good to me. Anyways, I rambled there. This jumbo mug features a damask motif on it that was inspired by a vintage pattern. I put it all around this gorgeous mug. It will make a great gift for a damask lover. Just put something inside sorta like a gift basket. Here is a picture of it along side an espresso cup and a regular coffee mug that are also available in my store. Pardon the bad quality picture once again. Next the the jumbo mug is an espresso cup that is available in my store as well. It is a St. Patrick's day 4 leaf clover and romantic red hearts design. I think it is awesome. I wish the picture showed it better. The espresso cup measure about 2 3/4 inches high. (I don't have the best light here so I may be off on the size). The other mug is just one of the normal coffee mugs available in my store. It features a hand drawn heart on it in hot pink and black scrollwork. It says "girly girl" on it. The next picture shows the medium sized tea pot. It has my celtic cross in heart cemetery crypt door design on it. The tea pot measures 7 inches high from the top of the lid to the bottom, and 4.5 inches across the bottom. The picture does not do it justice. I have used this tea pot when brewing mint tea. I pour cooled tea in it and place it in the fridge and it's great. You can find these in my shop below.
