The Christmas Tree (postage) Lot

Listed below are some of the best Christmas Tree postage stamp designs
we've seen this year from our fellow Zazzle designers. Our selection criterion
was pretty simple — upon first glance if we were filled with admiration, mixed
with a little healthy "I wish we had done that" envy, bingo! It's a holiday winner —
at least from our point of view. So if you like what you see, be sure to take advantage 
of the current FREE shipping on postage orders offer from Zazzle. (Details
at the end of this post.)

Holiday Gift Collections

Let's face it, generally, from an aesthetic standpoint, we like stuff that matches, 
coordinates, goes well together. It helps satisfy our primal need to create order 
out of chaos.  Same thing when we shop or buy gifts...

Sometimes it's helpful to see what things might look like as a gift pack or thematic 
collection. For that reason (and okay, admittedly because we hope you'll buy more 
than one thing at a time), we've grouped a few of our favorites together in product 
collages and running lists ("Mistletoe series," "Merry Kissmas," "Paws & Reflect," 
"Because You've Been Good," "Menorah Dogs") in several of our November 2008 
blog posts, to help you visualize the positive, "feel good" impact it can have when 
your lucky recipient first opens their package and sees how truly generous you were — 
even if that lucky recipient is you!!  

To view a gift collection, click on the appropriate archived blog post to your right.

Mistletoe series

Gift someone you love from our Merry Kissmas mistletoe series:

Menorah Dogs (aka "Hanukkah Hounds")

A new series of items from our Wags To Wishes® product line:

Heel Doggy, Heel

The custom shoes below were purchased for the niece of one of the Artful_Animalz gallery owners, incorporating her beloved dog, Ollie on the heel. We have received so many requests by her schoolmates and other friends to know how we did it, and how they can do it as well, with their own pets, we've decided to post a bunch of examples (scroll down the page to see them all), along with some instructions.  You may want to print or save this information before proceeding, and also prepare the .jpg photo of your pet, placing it on your computer desktop.  First click on the graphic for the shoes you would like to use and you'll be taken to its product listing page. Click the "Customize it" tab, then scroll to the "Heel", using the left & right arrows, while you're in the "Product" view. Then click "change image" in the design tool area. The "Add Image" box will appear. Click the "My Computer" tab, then the "Choose File" tab, which will allow you to browse your computer for the photo of your pet. When you find it, click the "Choose" button. You'll see that the image is now attached. Click the "Add Image" button in the lower right, and the photo of your pet will be uploaded into the "Heel" area for the shoe design. You can then resize it or adjust the image until it's just right. Enjoy!

Note: stars & stripes design is not currently customizable, but the design is still pretty cool. Some designs, like the peace signs, are currently posted as a "kids" shoe, which goes up to size 5 youth. However, you can always email the gallery owner/designer and request that a "ladies" version be posted, size 5 and up.

Faux Furry Feet

Below are a few wild and fun Keds shoe designs created by some of our fellow designers on Zazzle. (Of course, no animals were harmed in the making of this footwear.) Just click on the graphic and you'll jump to its product listing page. But don't forget to bookmark Artful Animalz before you go, so you can quickly find your way back. Afterall, it's a jungle out there!
