Marshmallows Drowning in Hot Chocolate Mug on CafePress

It’s available on CafePress here. It’s also available on Zazzle here.

I’m happy to see it featured! I had a lot of fun drawing the little marshmallow cartoons and deciding what each marshmallow would be doing.

If you’d like to read more about my designs, see some basic GIMP tutorials and writer inspiration, stop by my blogspot blog, too!

My Funny Christmas Designs on Zazzle

Funny Christmas at
     Here’s an overview of my funny Christmas designs on Zazzle. I had the most fun making the mug (on the right side, above the ‘Fro-Man ornament). The little marshmallows are drowning in hot chocolate! The “Ginger Bread Man” (a redheaded slice of bread) is also one of my all-time favorites. I’d like to write some stories with him as a character. The one in the middle (Merry Elfin Christmas with a bitter elf) sells the best.
     In other news, I’ve been revising an old science-fiction manuscript and plan to send it to a few agents this week. I’m nervous about it because I haven’t sent queries for a while — but I would love for this book to be published traditionally, since that’s always been a dream of mine. Out of all the stories I’ve written, this one is my favorite.
     Aside from that, I’ve started a new blog on Blogger here. I like WordPress better, but I’m not allowed to show anything here except my own designs. So, I’m going to be using the Blogger blog to show off all kinds of things, from a bunch of designers. Feel free to follow there if you’d like to see more variety! I’ll post there more frequently than I post here, too. I also plan to mix it up with posts made to inspire writers and short tutorials going over the basics of GIMP.
     Thanks for stopping by! Zazzle has a lot of coupon discounts leading up to Christmas.
