This is my first folio planner I have sold!

Honestly, I had not expected to ever sell one but it seems they are handy Christmas gifts!

Siyuan from Tampa, FL has bought one with a photo of a small boat in Hamburg, Germany:

This folio planner has earned me $4.80 in royalty plus an additional 7% volume bonus! Thank you so much, Siyuan!



Angers is a beautiful picturesque city in France.

We had been to Angers around Easter in 2012 and we like this town in the Loire Valley.

Obviously, William from Alvaton in KY also liked it and has bought this pretty post card:

This card features the beautiful garden inside the fortress. You should definitely stop by when you’ll ever be near!

William has earned me $0.08 in royalty. Thank you, William!


October 26th was my birthday and I like it that I had a sale on that day.

October 26th was my birthday and what a coincidence: I have sold a product with a photo that was shot on October 26th LAST YEAR. What does Zazzle want to tell me with this? I don’t know *lol*

Derek in Bath (UK) has bought this extraordinary magnet:

It features the BAYER cross at night, a famous and really huge landmark in Leverkusen, Germany.

Derek has earned me £0.28 GBP for my birthday. Thank you, Derek 🙂


If you’re going to San Francisco…

Terri in Northglenn, CO liked my relatively new postcard featuring a Victorian house in San Francisco, California. This is one of many really beautiful houses you can find in this city – not only the famous Painted Ladies on Alamo Square.

As there are gazillions of photos available of the Painted Ladies, I thought it would be a good idea to also add photos of houses that are less known but still pretty. And I guess I was right, I sold this postcard less than 4 weeks after creating it.

Terri has earned me $0.06 in royalty, thank you!


I had two sales on October 22nd, read all about it here:

Hurray, October means increased sales with Christmas just around the corner! I had two sales on October 22nd.

The first item is a postcard that was bought by Gregoire in Nashville, TN:

This card is my most popular postcard at the moment and to be honest – it is one of the most beautiful Santa Monica photos you can find online *lol* This sale has earned me $0.11.

The second sale is a drinking bottle with a royalty-free image. Noreen is Yeronga, Australia has bought it and this makes her the second “Aussie” to buy a product from my shop. Thank you, Noreen!

I am really sorry that this blog had suddenly vanished a few days ago. Part of it was my fault and I was not at home for a few days and therefore could not correct it. Grrr…

Anyways, I have managed to map my vacant domain to this blog. What has changed?

This blog is now also available through and will remain available through

All blog posts will also be available through How cool is that? 🙂

Thanks for your patience and for staying loyal to my blog 🙂

Have fun and great sales on Zazzle!

There is a far better social bookmarking website out there than Pinterest! Read all about it here:

Hurray, Thursday was another “Triple Sale Day” with three sales on Zazzle!

I love triple sale days 🙂

Hope in Greenwich, CT was the first to make me happy. She purchased 30 (yes, THIRTY!) of these beautiful magnets:

I really wonder what she will do with 30 magnets. Maybe she will sell them in a gift shop? Hope, if you are reading this… I really would love to know it *lol*

This huge sale earned me $8.10 in royalty alone – plus some Volume Bonus for October!

The second one was James in Philadelphia, PA with a sheet of these stickers:

A geeky or nerdy gift idea… might also be cool for scrap booking. Anyway, James has earned me $0.42 in royalty plus Volume Bonus!

And now drumroll for number three: Gillian from Abington, PA has bought this cool iPhone 5 case:

Gillian has earned me $4.44 in royalty plus bonus.

I am often surprised about what kind of photo products sell on Zazzle. This hat is the most recent surprise.

Honestly, I had totally forgotten about creating these “trucker hats” as I personally would not buy such a hat with a photo on it. I don’t know, it’s not something I would wear. But I have just sold my first trucker hat to a fellow German:


Thanks to Stephan in Warendorf for purchasing this hat! It earned me €1.29 in royalty and made me create a template for hats so that I can easily create more of them. This hat is the proof that you should never give up on Zazzle and never think “I won’t create that item, no one will buy it anyway!”. This would be a huge mistake *lol*


A small sale over night – a funny post card!

This post card is really funny and not the first I bought with this unique “at night” design *lol*

Heather from Phoenix has bought this card and has earned me $0.07.

I got the inspiration for this “strange” post card some years ago while searching for post cards of Cologne in Germany. There was one with “Cologne at night” which stayed in my memory all these years.

What do you think of it?
