Zazzle Christmas 2!

It's a Friday evening. There's a log fire going in the fireplace, snow on the ground outside, and I've started my Christmas shopping this week! Getting things for my sisters is still proving to be difficult, so I returned to Zazzle for a little inspiration.

The thing with girls is, we carry around a lot of stuff. Purse, make up, phone, keys, spare keys, a pocket diary, a pen, packet of tissues, a book, and anything else that we might need during the day. And for girls that are at school it's even worse because they have to take school books with them too, and PE kits. So a nice tote bag to help carrying all this stuff is always welcome.

Happy shopping!

Zazzle Christmas!

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, etc etc. Except we don’t eat goose, we have turkey in my family! And actually for me the big thing in the approach to Christmas isn’t the chubbifying of any animals, it’s the gift buying.

In theory using the internet should make Christmas shopping so much easier. But it doesn’t, because two of the people I’m buying for are older children/young teenagers, one is eleven and the other is thirteen. What on earth do you buy a 13 year old girl? She has tons of make up, she got a load of fashion books for her birthday, she really doesn’t need any more clothes, I am tearing my hair out!!

And I know that plenty of you will be having this problem too so I asked the good sellers at Zazzle for a little help and inspiration!

Here today we have the shop of Funcards. It specialises in personalised gifts, from bookmarks to iPad cases, with original artwork and photography.

I love the colours on this folder. Perfect for the little writer in your household as a place to keep all their musings. And because it is customisable you can change the name from “Tamara” to that of the receiver, and you do not even need to keep the “poems” bit either! It can be artwork, homework, postcards, anything they do or collect!

More will be coming so stay tuned for more gift ideas!

Cor blimey!

I never thought I'd be making another "sold" post so soon! It's really lovely to wake up, check my email, and find that Zazzle notification :D Makes me dance around my room like a total nutter.

So my first sale notification was to tell me that someone had bought TEN of my latin phrase postcards! I am incredibly chuffed about this, as you can well imagine, including a Cicero one:

And then my second one was to tell me that someone really likes the ancient Egyptian god Anubis, because they bought three of these lovely hats!

So my November has been off to a cracking start! Thank you to my lovely buyers, I hope everyone enjoys their purchases!

Gooood morning everyone!

I have tea, I have toast with marmite, and I have CSI on my screen :D

I also have a sale! *Happy dance* It's actually my second sale in a week. Last week I sold this Plato <3 badge:

And then yesterday I woke up to discover that my latest line of Troy sports hoodies had also had a sale! Someone clearly likes Aeneas because they purchased this snazzy little number:

Zazzle has announced their Chrismas Order Deadlines so if you're planning on buying anything classics based for Christmas, make sure you get it in before the deadline! <3

Still here!

Hello everyone!

I'm still here. Still Zazzling! Just been very busy with other work. I promise I will try to be a better blogger.

I'm very happy to say that I've already managed to get one sale in October! Someone clearly likes the Greek hero Odysseus!

I'm currently working on adding new things to my Zazzle store on my days off so keep an eye on the New Products section of my store to see what I'm coming up with in the run-up to Christmas!

Zazzle Monday!

Good morning! It’s Monday and that means we are back to the beginning of the week. I hope everyone had fun weekends!

Today I’ve picked something for the ancient Greek world. Even if you don’t know anything about ancient Greece there are still a few names that should be familiar to you, such as Homer. Nowadays most people know the name through the infamous “Homer Simpson”. But to students of the ancient world Homer was a blind poet who composed two epic poems; The Iliad, which covered several days of the ten year Trojan War, and the Odyssey which covered the journey of the king Odysseus as he tried to get home after the war.

Greek students are required to read both books as part of their studies, although they tend to read one of the many English translations unless they’re studying the Greek language. Those that read it in the Greek can now read it whenever they have a cup of tea, thanks to this mug!

On one side this mug has “Iliad Book 1, 1-23” (1-23 refers to the lines) and then on the other side it has the passage written in ancient Greek! This mug is in the shop of googolperplexd who has lots of “nerd products” in their shop (their words, not mine XD) including t-shirts and mousemats!

Etsy Wednesday!

Welcome to Wednesday! Is it wet wet wet or sun sun sun where you are?

Let’s move to ancient Greece today. As I’ve said many times before it’s one of my favourite periods and places to study. I am a bit of a Grecophile. And I know I’m not the only one, ancient Greece inspired some of the world’s greatest thinkers. And even now it inspires writers and artists.

But whether you’re an artist drawing or simply a busy person that likes parts of the ancient world, chances are you will need a bag to carry your things around in when you go to work or to the shops. And now you can show your love of ancient things with this tote bag!


This tote bag was designed by BaoStudio on Etsy. Based in New York their print their designs on a bunch of products and they’ve got a huge range of designs.
