Today’s Best Awards at Zazzle

For those that aren’t familiar with the Zazzle marketplace, there are literally billions of products available from millions of artists, photographers and designers.  Each day, Zazzle selects 30-40 of those products to reflect what they felt were the best and/or most interesting new items created that day.

I have been blessed to be selected many times in the four months I’ve been active at Zazzle, but this last week I was really pleased to have my products selected 3 days in a row.  It’s quite an honor and a reward for your hard work.  Thank you, Zazzle!

The contemporary flower design was a lot of fun to create.  So many of these contemporary designs are just drawn and colored in on Photoshop.  I love to bring  watercolor art into contemporary design and give it a flair that flat graphics will never achieve.

This collection was created out of the art work I designed for my “Paradise” fabric collection with Studio E Fabrics.  There are three different collections within this collection which makes it perfect for the bride that hates “matchy-matchy!”

And finally, a contemporary baby girl baby shower or birth announcement.  One of the things I love to do with my Zazzle store, is play with creating more contemporary work than might be my usual.  This “Circles ‘n Booties” ensemble is a great example of mixing classic Audrey Jeanne art with a contemporary twist.

I am just 1400 visits away from 700,000 hits!  Thanks one and all for taking time out of your day to let me share my art and my heart 🙂

Remembering My Sock Monkey!


Those memories are still with me like they were yesterday and they are inspiring a brand new art collection “Retro Sock Monkey” which will have a lot of fun surprises to it.  Here is the very first pieces of the art put together into a Baby Shower Invitation and a Baby Birth Announcement.

When I was a little girl, one of my family members made me a classic Sock Monkey that I loved virtually to death!  If I went somewhere so did that monkey.  I’m sure my Mom loved that she could throw him in the laundry and he came out as good as new.  I was such a tomboy and drug him through the mud, and even played with him in the sand box with my Tonka toys.  I had a dump truck and a crane that he rode in quite frequently.

On the reverse side of the birth announcement is a photo opening to put your baby’s picture in as well as customizing the information on the front.


I have so many ideas that it’s making this collection one of the most fun I’ve done in many years.  I’m not sure that I’ll get it together in time for The Surtex Show, but it will be available soon to review at my agent’s website www.MHSlicensing.com

Custom Personalized Baby Name Digital Art for Framing



I’ve been working on a really fun idea, one that’s very different than my usual product.  When I first started my framed print business, I designed a fun baby room name frame called “Brennan’s Bears” (which was because my last name then was Brennan)  These were framed 8″ x 20,” hand watercolored individually created artwork that sold for close to $100.00 framed.  I always have enjoyed the specialty baby business and creating gifts that can be treasured for a lifetime.

I wanted to update that product line and came up with “Jungle Babies.”  This is a item that I will custom create for your baby, grand baby or baby gift.  You order your item by downloading the instruction kit, which consists of an instruction sheet on how to order your custom name, and two idea sheets with suggestions and instructions for what you can make with the art when you receive it.

Once we receive your email telling us what the baby’s name is and the color combination you would like to order, we digitally create your own custom artwork and send it to you within two weeks or less (the goal is always to send it as fast as possible).  You will receive via email your artwork in two sizes, a 14″ x 4 1/2″ version that can be printed out on legal sized paper (8 1/2″ x 14″) and an 11″ x 3 1/2″ that can be printed out on standard letter sized paper.  Both are jpeg files of original water colored art work with your baby’s name surrounded by jungle animals that is suitable for framing or making a variety of crafts with.

We give you instructions on how you can make a simple plaque version of this artwork to hang in your child’s room.  We also give you some ideas of how you can print this art on printable fabric and create a quilt, a crib bumper, a pillow or a diaper stacker.  Print it on iron-on transfer paper and make a baby onesie and a matching Grandmother’s sweat shirt, the ideas are endless!
