Christmas 2012, Family, Customizable Gifts, and Zazzle

Thought it was about time, with Christmas a scant few weeks away, to play at Zazzle and create some pressies.  These, though applicable and suggested to one and all for the upcoming Christmas (or any time of year, really), has been designed more or less with the family in mind.

Manly Presents for this Christmas at Zazzle

"Man at Home" Customizable T-Shirt

It is great to be on Zazzle because you get to make your own personal items - especially for special occasions.

This t-shirt features a signed (though the signature is deliberately a challenge to find - unless you know what you are looking for) sketch using the amazing Papers app for iPad.

A wholly experimental artwork - a first time trial at using the Papers app and a first time attempt at playing around with my new Macbook Pro, using GIMP and Magic Tricks app.  (Both of these apps also highly recommended for sheer versatility and for the endless fun factor).

Jeff Buckley's Classics on Zazzle

Ever since I came across Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah, I have been entranced.  It is the very best rendition in the world!  And it will bring a tear to my eye and a yearning in my heart each and every time.  The man was an absolute genius.

So how could I do anything but have something personalized that was sole devoted to the great man.

(Tip: if you follow the link above to watch and listen to Jeff Buckley, listen out for the awed "wow" at the end.  Coz that is what it was - a moment of sublime inspired singing).

On Zazzle you will find some customizable Jeff Buckley special items.

Angels, Devils, and Imps on Zazzle

After a long absence, I may be finally getting back into some blogging and zazzling.  With Christmas so close, it is not surprising that my next thoughts are moving towards Angels which leads to Devils and the related entities - Imps.

Some of the more delectable angels, devils, and imps on Zazzle are available from various sellers:

"Cosplay" is a short form for "costume play".  The term was coined by Nobuyuki Takahashi in 1984. (see: Cosplay on Wikipedia)

I have someone in my family who is a bit of a nut about cosplay.  And hence, thinking of him brought to mind this topic which led me to finding lots of goody products on Zazzle.  Below are some interesting ones.

Meditation is not Thinking

Meditation is not Thinking - is something to think about! :D

Meditation is not Thinking is the first of my Message Series outputs in my Zazzle ClearlyChosen store.

I have been thinking, on off on, about messages - for T-shirts and stuff - and also because they come to me in all forms (from what people say, what I read about, what I see, what just pops in), and I find that they intrigue me.  Sometimes I am left thinking about the various roads and avenues that some succinct set of words take me.  And sometimes, they change my perception, and change bits of myself.

So instead of just thinking about it .. I thought, let's just do it ... and so was finally birthed my Message Series.

Eyes & Love and a touch of the Orient for Zazzle store

While I am still in the mood to Zazzle-fy,  let's have more customizable Zazzle T-shirts.

You wanna Swirl on Zazzle?

My matey asked me "why not have some swirls in your t-shirt designs?"  He was looking for just a simple swirl.  And I promise to do it .. eventually.

Meanwhile I have been playing around with Swirl combos.  The results for tonight ..

Baby Face 2012 on Zazzle

Baby Face goes to Zazzle.
Today I am enjoying putting Baby Face to Zazzle.

Browse Clearly chosen T-Shirts

I find artistic work in progress as fascinating as the final outcome.  This original artwork is by Xavier Lim.  Xavier tells me that more of the baby is yet to come (like the body! lol!)  But I love the face just as is and so Zazzle now showcases it as well :)

I have found that it is quite exhausting, with a touch of boringness, to do many variations of a design all in one setting.  So as part of my 2012 actions - I am just going to Zazzle stuff for the PURE JOY of it.  That means that things get Zazzle-fied in joyful droplets rather than in huge batches.

Today's little effort sees Baby Face on a t-shirt and yes .. on a Mug (pun intended :)
