I have been testing another Polyvore alternative and am very happy about Fashmates! They work very hard to be a worthy substitute for dead Polyvore and clipping and creating sets is easy and fun.

I have created a first set and am eagerly testing all the features. Maybe you’d like to follow me? 🙂

Beautifully designed digital artwork by Christine aka stine1 altering an original photograph of the famous Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California to have a stained glass effect. A bit of abstract with mainly red, orange and blue hues on a black background. Making the Pier shine in the night!

I had ordered three bathroom mats from French Amazon with stolen digital artwork of my Santa Monica Pier altered photo and have now successfully claimed an A to Z satisfaction guarentee! I still have to take photos of the bathmats. Sad to say, the print quality and the overall quality is way better than I would have ever imagined…

Anyway, if you need help how to do this, please let me know. I would be glad to help you via email.

If you are an American you can order your copyright infringing products from Amazon.com and I do think Amazon.ca.

If you are from Germany like me, you can order from Amazon.de, Amazon.fr and Amazon.es – I will try other country platforms, too!

Home Decor is a great topic and it seems that wall tapestries are very popular as a huge alternative to posters or canvas prints. It’s an easy way to make any room more cozy. Why not check out my art on Societ6?

Artsadd is one of many print on demand websites and when I had created my account in 2016 I was hoping for the best. After a few disappointments regarding sales at CowCow, ForUDesign, Design by Humans and Live Hero, I would have needed a successful new website to sell my designs. After all, sales on Zazzle, Cafepress and Society6 seem to decline from year to year.

So I put all hopes into Artsadd and created thousands of products – one by one since there is no mass designer tool. The prices were and are great, free shipping worldwide must be nice for customers and I had even ordered some of my products myself. But it did not help in the long run. It tool me TWO YEARS to reach the cashout limit of $100 for weeks and weeks of uploading, creating and sharing online. NOT worth my time!

I think the worst thing they could do is to hide the search bar for potential customers. Even I have to search for the search bar although I do know the website well. How should a customer find a product or design for a certain topic?

I have stopped to design new products in 2018 and guess what? I only had one sale in 2018 – one sale in one year!

Nope, not worth my time anymore. I will not delete my products but I doubt I will EVER make any more sales and I will probably never ever reach the $100 again…

During February 2019 I have sold a total of nine t-shirts on German Amazon with two returns – two customers were unsure about the sizes and had ordered two sizes each.
