Art on Products - Coloring Santa Claus

When I was a kid, I loved paint by numbers and coloring in outline drawings on fabric. In those days, the only choices for color in designs were table cloths, pillow cases, and velvety pictures. Now the choices include t-shirts, canvas bags, aprons, quilt squares, and more.

Here are some fun coloring designs for one of our most famous characters, Santa Claus.

First up is Santa on a canvas bag. Kids can color this ahead of time and use as their Christmas stocking.


For kids of all ages that like to wear their art, we have Santa outlines on tee shirts. You can choose any shirt style, color, and or size.


If you want to get in the mood for baking cookies, etc., we have an apron for you to don.


May you enjoy coloring in fun as much as I did when I was a kid.

Art on Products - Pointillism Santa Claus by CherylsArt

For most people, the thought of Santa Claus brings thoughts of joy, wishes granted, and a time for merriment. This painting of Santa in Pointillism reminds me of all of this. He looks cheerful, artful, and content. If I were a child, I would love to receive a cute canvas bag with a picture of Pointillism Santa, filled with goodies of course. Do you have special thoughts of Santa and Christmas? Wishing you a wonderful Christmas Season and a thoroughly good New Year. Cheryl Paton CherylsArt www.zazzle.com/CherylsArt*/

Art on Products - Frosty Candy Cane Hearts Save the dates, Cards, and more

This blend of pink has a frosty look to it. When I think of winter and Christmas, I think of frosty mornings. So when I designed the candy cane heart, I decided to have it be on a frosty background. The background is a painting of blended reds and pinks.

You can send this frosty pink look on your Save the dates, whether it's for a wedding and or other holiday or Christmas event. There is a template placeholder where you can easily upload your photo. If you need to reposition the photo or adjust the size of it, then click on Customize, once you're on the product page.


For weddings, we also have the Candy Cane Heart invitations which can be customized online. The frosty design is left in the center, and the words, Our Wedding, are written in white.


With either one, you can include Candy Cane Hearts RSVP postage stamps. View, Our Wedding Stamps, here.


Couples can commemorate their wedding with a personalized Candy Cane Heart ornament. There is a template placeholder for names on one side, and a placeholder for the date or year on the other side.


A personalized Thank you will be appreciated. You can type in your thank you message on the provided template form.


You can find more matching and commemorative candy cane wedding items at Zazzle.

Cheryl Paton, that's me, is the artist and Zazzle is the company that does the printing and shipping.

Art on Products - Autumn Neckties, Shirts, Cards, Mugs, Letterhead, Envelopes

Autumn is the time of year when the beautiful colors have switched from flower blossoms to the leaves on the tree. Gone for a while are the bright vivid reds, yellows, and purples of flowers; for awhile we welcome the more subdued yellow, oranges, greens, and browns. Come help me welcome the season of Fall. Some of the first colors that I've noticed are reds and yellows, as depicted in this wonderful Autumn tie of oak leaves:
And the yellows and browns of Autumn Birch leaves, a wonderful way to send greetings:
Before the full blast of orange leaves, as shown on this I love Fall shirt:
For many, the true sign of Fall is the maturing of the pumpkins. This wonderful mug would be a great touch to have with a slice of pumpkin pie:
Do you love the contrast of the Fall colors with the beautiful blue sky. The text on this Autumn Letterhead can easily be customized for personal or business use:
Autumn leaves though, must at sometime fall; perhaps that is why Autumn is also called Fall. I'm reminded of fallen leaves on these beautiful envelopes. There is also matching stationery:
Most people will also say they think of cooler weather, along with thoughts of Autumn. This word of Autumn, on a long sleeve hoody, is designed from fall leaves:
One of the nicest things about Fall that I love though, is the thought of Blessings. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and blessings are so important to think of, no matter the time of the year. Hope you enjoy this wonderful greeting card and all the thoughts of Fall:

Art on Products - Star Stickers

The star is a simple shape, usually drawn with five points. To many, the star has also become a symbol of status, perhaps because we look up to them in the night sky and become mesmerized by their simplicity and brightness. A famous actor becomes a star. An A student becomes a star student. A great performance becomes a star performance. Beyond simplicity, the star has also come to represent excellence.

Excellence is rewarded for a job well done:

A stellar lens on Squidoo is awarded a purple star:

Art on Products - Happy Thoughts and Designs

I love happy thoughts and designs. I love looking at, giving, and receiving cheeriness. I planted flowers along the edge of my backyard so I can see their vibrant colors when they are in bloom. How about you. Do you love cheeriness and happiness? If so, you'll probably like what I found when I searched on happy for this blog.

First we begin with, Be happy, it's a good feeling. It's such a wise thought:

Next we go to the one major holiday of the year, when most people think happy and merry thoughts, Christmas. Add a photo to this fun magnet to commemorate a happy occasion:

For happy holidays, the next runner up is Happy Maaa Day:

Speaking of mothers, more happy thoughts can come with fun family reunions:

This frog brought a happy smile to my face as soon as I saw it. How about you?

Birthdays are another time to celebrate happy:

Love this cheerful clown; he'd make a cute addition to any birthday gift:

I found this saying to be so perfect - Happiness held is the seed, happiness shared is the flower:

The sunshine of happiness can be found anywhere, including on this lovely tie:

Sometimes happiness is in the season:

or in sharing friendship:

But wherever we are, whatever the occasion, and whatever time of the year it is, we can always find happy. Because wherever we are, we are always connected to the spirit that connects us all:

May you find happiness and enjoy being happy every day of your life.
