Silver Snowflake Holiday Fashion

Dress for your holiday event in an outfit that features artwork that cannot be found at the mall. This silver snowflake fashion outfit was created by a designer at Zazzle.com and is a holiday look that you can buy as shown or create your own fashion look.

Create your own holiday fashion look by uploading a photograph and using the online design tool. If you are creative and have time to mess with your product design, then great but if not know that the silver snowflake holiday fashion outfit is beautiful and cannot be bought at your local mall. The chances of somebody showing up at the holiday party in your outfit is not likely.

Here is a fashion set that shows you the silver snowflake two-piece outfit with coordinating silver accessories.





I think this snowflake print with midnight blue abstract background is beautiful. Plus the fit of the tank top is good for women who have curves. Unlike the form-fitting tanks, this top has a drape in the right places. The fabric feels like silk and is so soft on your skin. The leggings are delightfully made with just enough stretch to feel comfortable and they do not sag at the knees. So you look picture perfect after sitting.


Know that I think this midnight blue and silver snowflake outfit is beautiful and if you buy it for your special occasion that you will look stunning.

Print on Demand Fashion Design at Zazzle

For the last nine years, I have been designing fashion for him, her and kids at Zazzle.com. I like that every product that I design is a work of art and is one of a kind. Which means it is made by Zazzle, and you will never see it the mall. If you are someone who likes unique fashion then know that you can buy the design as shown or you can choose to upload your own artwork, graphics or photograph to create your own fashion look.

This fashion set features leather look leggings that and black zebra printed accessories that I created at my Photo Gifts by Sgolis store.

Over the years I have bought many artwork t-shirts from Zazzle and find that the quality does differ from product style, there is finer cotton that feels like silk on your skin that is perfect for warm weather and there are other t-shirt styles that are made with a heavier cotton which is best used for cooler weather. The sweatshirts and hoodies are super as they have a smooth outer layer with a fleece-like texture close to your skin.
I find that the artwork when applied to the quality cotton and blended polyester fabrics at Zazzle are reproduced beautifully. Zazzle does not mass produce their products, instead, they print the product only when it is bought. So when you buy any product at the website a skilled worker will create your product. They will ensure that your fashion product will have a high-resolution digital quality image that does not fade even after many cold water washes with air fluff drying and hung up on a hanger to dry all the way.
Know that I design fashion for men women and children at Zazzle and I am also a customer who shops at other designers stores. I like that the products I buy are works of art. If you have not shopped for print on demand fashion at Zazzle, then I would recommend that you check them out. Here are a few of my fashion looks from my store. These products were created from photographs or graphics. Click the highlighted words to view.

Zazzle Christmas Tree Skirts

Zazzle is a print on demand website that sells a variety of products; clothing, office supplies, home décor and seasonal decorations such as Christmas tree skirts in brushed polyester, faux linen and coral fleece. What I like about the tree skirts is that you can buy from a variety of designs that were created by artists or you can make your own from uploading a photograph or your own artwork.
The Christmas tree skirt is a good way to conceal the tree stand and to dress up the look of your holiday tree. It is customary to set you wrapped presents under the tree, these gifts would be arranged on the Christmas skirt.
Here is a photograph of my tabletop tree. The skirt is white (like snow)

 The tree skirt compliments your Christmas Decorations.
When it comes to choosing a tree skirt I recommend that you choose one that will compliment your Christmas theme and the colors of your ornaments. Red or green colors are popular, also gold and silver prints. There are many tree skirts to choose from I am sure there is one that is perfect for your holiday home décor.
If you are someone who likes to coordinate and do a color match then you may want to shop at Zazzle designers store that features a variety of products using the same pattern as the tree skirt. You may want to match the tree skirt up with
Many times the Zazzle designer features the same design used on the tree skirt an ornament, ribbon and gift wrapping paper. How wonderful to be able to coordinate the tree skirt with the matching Christmas decorations.
When you shop for your Christmas decorations and tree skirts at Zazzle you will be supporting small business because the artist that created the product earns a royalty on their designs. You will also be shopping for unique products that cannot be bought anywhere else. So no worries about your friends having the same tree skirt or other Christmas decorations.
Here are a few Christmas tree skirts with matching accessories. If you like any of them and want to view them in high resolution please click on the highlighted words below the image and this will take you to the designer's online store.

Remembrance Christmas Tree Decorating Tips

When it comes to the holiday’s you may be missing a loved one who passed away, or you may be sad because you are thinking of a  beloved pet. If you find that you are feeling blue then a remembrance Christmas tree will help you.
My remembrance Christmas tree 


For me, it was my dear mother who died in November and that first holiday’s season was very hard because my mother loved Christmas and I was missing her. I could not bring myself to open the Christmas storage boxes to decorate the tree. Then my husband told me that if I decorate for Christmas I will be keeping my mom alive through happy memories. He said it would be good therapy for the grieving process because my heart would be filled with love and not sorrow.  

I thought about it and knew he was right so I got busy with gathering my mom’s ornaments and creating other ornaments for the holiday tree.
I decorated the tree with ornaments that my mom had made


I used a photograph of my remembrance tree to create ornaments at zazzle.com

Christmas Tree in Candlelight Snowflake Ornament



I decorated my mom's tree with the ornaments she had made when she was recovering from breast cancer. She would do her crafts whenever she was sad because I think they were therapy for her. So I hung the ornaments that my mom made on the remembrance tree.

I needed filler ornaments so I found our family photograph box and looked for the photographs of my mom and dad. The photographs were scanned into my computer so I could upload them to zazzle.com to make custom ornaments for the Christmas tree.

Remembrance Christmas Tree Ornament


If you have no photographs for your remembrance tree then if they loved to bake use utensils as ornaments. Add cookie cutters to your remembrance tree. Hang them with a pretty ribbon on a tree branch.

If your loved one liked fishing add the flies on  Christmas hooks. If you can incorporate your loved one's hobby onto the Christmas tree then do it!

Here is a collection of ornaments that I designed all can be customized by adding your photograph.

When the remembrance tree is completed you would then turn on the tree lights. Then each family member will share a special memory of your loved one who passed away.

It is always hard to have a loved one pass away close to the Christmas holidays. Please know that the remembrance tree is a way to heal and to not feel so sad during the Christmas season

Cat Pattern Ties for Men


When comes to dressing up for the office or special event men will put on a cat print tie because they do not mind showing off to that real men love cats. My husband has a drawer full of cat pattern ties He likes to wear one I made from him from a photograph of our Siamese cat but for meetings or power lunches he will put on his black and white leopard print tie or other animal print. I am not sure but I think he feels more confident, in his black suit with his big cat fashion tie.
Classic Styled neckties
Know that you can rarely find a cat pattern necktie at the mall, those stores have mostly generic looking ties for men. If you want a tie that is interesting then you need to shop online at a print on demand store like Zazzle. The ties that are created by some talented painters, photographers, and graphic design artists. There is no such thing as a boring fashion tie at Zazzle.

Here are a few of my favorite big and domestic cat fashion ties. If you are interested in any of these ties and would like to view in high resolution please click the blue link directly under the image.

Zazzle for Kids - Sweatshirt Review


Zazzle sells quality made children clothing and the styles are classic, fabrics are soft on babies skin and the design patterns are super cute.


I bought a sweatshirt for my friend's daughter and found that the classic style was a relaxed fit which would allow for a first layer.  I also noted that the sweatshirt is well made. The inside fabric has a soft fleece feeling and the outside fabric is soft and smooth. This sweatshirt is perfect for cooler days in fall and also for wearing in winter.

The sweatshirts come in a variety of colors to coordinate with your kid's outfits. This Zazzle sweatshirt would look good with skirts, leggings, and jeans. Plus you can create a fashion look by adding trendy accessories; bag, boots, or fashion sneakers.

Here are a few of my sweatshirt designs. Click on the blue text to view at my zazzle.com store.

Gone Fishing – Menswear

Many men prefer to dress in t-shirts and khakis or jeans, they will go to their closet and pull out a plain Hanes tee and “getting dressed” is done. I am married to a man who dresses like this and prefers that he wear a pattern on his shirt. So I designed a line of shirts for men. Here is a menswear tee that I refer to as “gone fishing


This men’s tee is a loose fitting shirt that is perfect for men who are active. It is made from 100% cotton and is a heavier-weight, not paper thin but a good weight that appeals to men who prefer a shirt that is more durable. This shirt is perfect for working out in the yard or for wearing to go fishing.

Gone Fishing Men's Basic Tan T-Shirt

My husband likes this quality made shirt with the double-needle stitching on the sleeve, neck, and bottom. The shirt wears well and is one of my husband's favorites.

My husband weighs 152 and is 5’11. He wears a medium and the fit is loose and comfortable. We laundered this shirt in cold water, permanent press cycle and dried on low heat. Took out of the dryer when the shirt was damp, shook it and put on a hanger. It did not shrink and looks as good as new.

Retro Style Geometric Legging Outfit

Leggings have come a long way from wearing to an aerobics class in the 1980’s to being a trendy pant to wear for every day, running errands, lunch with friends or to dress up for a cool party.

Recently I designed a retro style geometric pattern legging and painted it with the colors pink, gray, black and white. The retro look was requested by a customer of mine who wanted it for her daughter to wear to college parties or to class.

What my customer liked about this style legging is that it could be worn with a variety of colors and it could be dressed up with a trendy top or it can be worn with t-shirt sneakers or flip-flops and matching monogram tote bag.

Unlike the ever popular jean, this legging is super comfortable with the right amount of stretch that gives when you move and bounces back in shape, it never looks baggy or out of shape even after being laundered.

Here is a fashion set that I created to show my customer. The retro style legging outfit is a cool party look that can be worn to a party or every day.  This legging will look fabulous on a teenager, college student or any women who love a retro fashion look.

Christmas Shopping in July


Christmas is the biggest holiday of the year so shopping in July is a good idea because next month will be back to school followed by autumn home décor and Halloween and Thanksgiving and before you know it Black Friday. July is not a hectic month so I like to do as many other people do and that is to shop in July for Christmas cards, holiday décor and gifts.


This year I will shop at Zazzle.com for my Christmas cards, postage stamps, return address labels, ornaments and tableware because they offer quality products that are created by artists at an affordable price.

If you are not familiar with Zazzle.com then know that it is a print on demand website where all the products are designed by artists. So when you shop and buy products from this website you are supporting small business because the artist earns a royalty when their designs are purchased. I prefer to shop for unique products and also support artist rather than shops at the mall.


At Zazzle, you can shop for Christmas cards with a greeting or blank inside. You can also customize the greeting by adding your own words. I always customize the card with an inside greeting and also sing it with the family name. It is less work to personalize the holiday cards, when they arrive you have to put in the envelope and mail.

Today I shopped at zazzle for Christmas cards and also looked at fleece blankets and decorative pillows. I found several that I liked, here are my top picks.
