Yesterday, while I was sitting on my deck enjoying the beautiful spring weather, I saw my first butterfly of the year. So, I know that spring has finally arrived after a rather dreary and very cold winter. I really enjoy photographing butterflies and have created many products from what I consider my best butterfly shots. In this post, I thought I would share some of my butterfly merchandise with you as well as some nice flowers to plant to attract butterflies. You can view some of my butterfly photography products as well as others I thought you might enjoy. My butterfly merchandise includes mousepads, binders / notebooks, mugs, buttons, greeting cards, tote and canvas bags, stickers, keychains, posters and more.

pennys-penguin-shirtAttention penguin lovers, there’s some really great penguin gifts and merchandise out there on the internet but it isn’t always easy to find them. I’d like to show you a few places to find some unique penguin products. We’ll of course start with some that I’ve designed. I drew the cute little penguin on the right back in the late 1990’s for a craft project, a napkin holder to be exact. I gave those projects as Christmas gifts that year but that’s for a different thread. I have now posted my cartoon penguin on a variety of products in my Zazzle store. My penguin merchandise includes some fun t-shirts, apparel, mousepads, coffee mugs, binders, stickers, cards, tote bags, and more.

I must admit I am a Ladybug lover. There is just something about these little red and black bugs. I know they’re kind of cute and are said to bring Good Luck. I have been drawing the cute little ladybug shown on the right for many years now and use it for my aviator in many online forums. Since opening my new shop that features my artwork, my little ladybug is now available on a variety of merchandise and gifts including t-shirts, tote bags, coffee & travel mugs, mousepads, greeting cards and even shoes.

Sawhet OwlI am often inspired when I see the wonderful talents of other artists. This can certainly be said for an artist I ran across recently, her name is Renee Fukumoto. I recently opened a new Zazzle shop featuring my own artwork and soon learned of some very gifted artists there. Renee’s shop, Ravenwood Studio was one I ventured into and was truly blown away at the passion that is reflected in her artwork. She specializes in horse, animal and nature art using a variety of mediums such as watercolors, acrylics, pastel pencils, pen & ink, and digital photography.

Cat Figure & StatueI absolutely love these beautiful and unique cat figures and statues created from artists around the world. I was really surprised to find these cat figures and statues are so affordable, as most of these felines are hand carved from wood and hand painted. The artist captured the classic cat features with fine details from the top of the cats head to the tip of its tail. You won’t find these types of unique cat figures from anywhere else but Novica.

Garden GnomeFirst off, I have to state I’m doing this blog post purely out of mischief. Today, I ran across some garden gnomes for your yard and was reminded that my brother-in-law Scott is rather weirded out by them. He thinks gnomes are kind of creepy. My sister Lorri and I are very compassionate about this issue, we have them everywhere. It’s all in good fun of course and Scott can certainly give some animated discussions regarding our garden gnomes. Hey, they’re cute, not creepy.

Cat with Butterflies T-ShirtBeing a cat lover and knowing there are a lot of us out there. I thought I’d share some really unique cat t-shirt, shirts and tees with my readers. I ran across some of these cat t-shirts back around Christmas and purchased one of them for my sister, Lorri as a gift. I let her pick the color and design out for herself and you’ll see the one she selected “Sly Cat & Butterflies” featured on the right. She was delighted with her lilac colored cat tee and I’m sure she’s getting some good use out of it, now that spring has arrived.
