  • Hey Susan!

    Great attitude! :O)

    &, right! Food on the table!

    I'm designing products using public domain images on, with profit in mind. Maybe you & some of the rest of us could give this a try! :D

    Here's some of what's available at my store (I've got more designs, but the store and app are always 24 hours off)....

    Browse other gifts from Zazzle.

    The learning curve was a very short one to get me to this point, but that's because I sorta stumbled onto some very worthwhile guidance (a discussion at an important forum).

    I've put the pertinent comments onto one PDF, which I'll be glad to share with any of our members who sends me an email with the following in the subject line: Zazzle Public Domain Biz. (Please avoid using all capital letters, as gmail will put your message in the spam file, in that case.)

    I think iPhones are an especially good outlet and business choice, but you can decorate all kinds of things on Zazzle - like bags, sneakers, skateboards, and stretched canvases! You DO, then have to promote your store, but the PDF does offer general pointers on that, too. It's doable. :O)

    And, if you like a design and have an iPhone, definitely make a purchase! Study and mutual admiration are fine, but "It takes money, Honey!"

    Hahaha! ;O)

    Sunshine & Blessings,

    • Hmm....

      Not sure what the black square over the widget is all about.

      SORRY! :P

      Sunshine & Blessings,

      Dress-up your iPhone, nice! ;O)

    • Hi-i!

      Very excited! :D

      Just figured out how to do this (for you actual iPhone users, this'll be a treat).

      That'll help you to view this....
      6368697862?profile=original...(along with the various details).

      Okay, let's go over the basics of how YOU can do this.

      Really all you've got to do is load the product page's URL (Internet address) into the app at's page. It will then give you a shortened version of your URL, which can be good because it'll hide your affiliate code (which is what you rely on to get paid).

      It will also give you the option of downloading a unique QR-code that leads to your page. This code allows those with smart phones to view your page without typing in the URL.

      BTW, 60 products are now up (all iPhone cases)!

      Still need to learn how to better organize and decorate my store, but that's a whole 'nother story. ;O)

      Hope to read some Zazzle success stories, soon. And if your iPhone needs something cute to wear, drop by, already! :D

      Sunshine & Blessings,

      Dress-up your iPhone, nice! ;O)

  • Beautiful
  • Hi Gio -- me again :-)


    I think this quote from David Ackert is right on.  For me, as a writer, it's about the joy of world-building, creating new characters (who are inevitably fragments of my own personality) and putting them in challenging situations.  As much as art imitating life (and vice-versa) . . . without conflict, you don't have a story to tell, and without conflict, you don't have a life worth living . . . because nothing's going on!  At least, nothing interesting. 


    And if it's not special to you (your life and/or your project) . . . then how can you expect anyone else to get excited about it?


    So my personal aspiration as a word-crafter is to create the most entertaining, thought-provoking story I can imagine, then tell it in a way that's so irresistible the reader MUST keep turning the pages.


    To make it "downright unputdownable" as reviewers have said of other novels.


    If I can achieve this with even ONE reader . . . then I've done my job :-)

  • WARNING: Another Rule-Breaker! :P

    As you may have noticed, I prefer material posted at The Enchanted Factory to be crafted by one's own hand. This discussion (with its Ten Rules) is an obvious exception.

    Well, after being introduced to the amazingly nurturing quote attached PS, it seemed time to break that rule, AGAIN.

    Please share your reactions to it! :D

    Sunshine & Blessings,

    Artists are some of the most driven and courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day to day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, artists face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get ‘real’ jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. 

    Every day they have to ignore the possibility that the vision to which they have dedicated their lives is a pipe dream. With every passing year, many of them watch as other people their age; achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. But they stay true to their dream, in spite of the sacrifices. Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul.

    Artists are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.

    ~ David Ackert
