Zazzle in the House of Sylvestermouse

My real name is Cynthia, but in the virtual world I am Sylvestermouse. My life centers around my family, our fun times and my online sites.

My Passion for Photography

I received my first camera when I was about 11 years old. Our family was going to Disney World and I was thrilled that I could take my camera along. Even though they are old and faded, I still have my first photos.

Growing up, I photographed family events like Christmas, birthdays and graduations, but my favorite photos were random shots of my siblings. I have a picture of my sister in hair curlers. I treasure the photo I took of my oldest brother when he was learning to play the guitar. I have pictures of all of my siblings with their first cars, bikes and motorcycles. I have them dressed in uniforms, formals, in swimsuits, and even bell bottomed blue jeans. There are those action shots caught just in time to capture the "bomb" affect of one of my brother's cannonball jumps off the diving board and into the pool. I have dozens of pictures of my brother's and sister's actions that they would deny if only they could. The best part of being on my side of the camera lens, is that there are no photos like that of me. I seem to be the only one of our group that was bitten by the shutter bug.

I take my camera, the blue one in the image, almost everywhere I go and I am likely to take pictures of almost anything. So, it should not be surprising to anyone that I have taken some of my favorite photos and opened a Zazzle store.

My Favorite Camera - Yes, It is Blue!

I originally chose this camera mainly because it has a view finder. I still prefer to use the view finder over the display screen, but this camera has both. My little blue friend is also light and compact. I really can stick it in a large pocket, wear it on my wrist or on a lanyard around my neck.

You can see for yourself the quality of the photos. It is the camera I used for all of my spring tree articles. It has an optical stabilizer and frankly, yes, I can tell a difference. I have been extremely pleased with the resolution of my pictures and also with the camera's zoom capabilities.

The featured camera below is a difference color than my lovely blue camera, but it is the same brand and model.

As I have been writing articles to publish online, I have been taking photos for each one. They have become the foundation of my Zazzle store.

You can see some of them featured in the articles listed below.

Wilderness Collections on Zazzle

My husband and I enjoy our hikes in the woods and I am always ecstatic to find a picturesque setting.

The American River in Sacramento, California

Few trails are more beautiful than the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail around The American River in Sacramento, CA. So many gorgeous pictures captured on just one afternoon hike.

Floral Collection

So Many Beautiful Flowers

I really do love to garden and my gardening time is very relaxing for me. It can easily be said that gardening is my personal therapy. When I am in my yard, working in the dirt, planting blubs or flowers, my mind can drift over whatever little problem I want to work though. This is truly the moments for inspiration and separation from anxiety.

One of my favorite ways to spend a beautiful day, is heading outside to work in my container flower gardens.

When my flowers bloom, I get the additional joy of photographing them.

My Rose Collection on Zazzle

Pink, Red, Gray or Even Firecracker Roses

I have my own personal rose garden. Some of my rose bushes are almost 20 years old and others are only a few years old, but they are all part of my personal piece of heaven here on earth.

Red Rose with Bud by Sylvestermouse is Available in my Zazzle Store

Summer Floral Collection

During the summer months, we like to sit outside, sipping a cool drink and watch the sun go down together.

My husbands favorite flower is the sunflower, so of course, I had to snap this shot one evening while we were relaxing in our backyard.

      Wow, your photos are beautiful. I suspect your talent is greater than your camera. Love Zazzle for how wonderful their products are and how beautiful designers like you can feature your work.

      I like the way you've decided to feature your zazzle products (and the little rhyme in your title too, lol) - it looks really good Cynthia and your photos are beautiful by the way

      I own a Canon too. It is not blue, but I adore it anyway. Your pictures are very nice and I found that your son graduation present in a form of a trip to Rome is fabulous. That is a marvelous gift. I remember that I fell in Rome at the moment I put my feet in it. Rome is a special place with so many ancient and modern wonders and I didn`t met anybody yet who forgot their visiting experience of it.
