CafePress, Christmas Gifts and More

Updated on October 10, 2014

Christmas Cafepress Style

August 2008, I discovered Then the addiction began! I opened my first shop. I had debated on if I should go with the paid or free shop. Now I am glad that I have chosen the free shops. The slang, "Build it and they will come" does not work for me. Despite that, I haven't given up. I keep building more shops as I do lenses. I have an addiction that has taken over my life.


Cafepress has been successful for many people. I would encourage anyone who to opened a shop & give it a try.

CafePress for Amazing Gifts

The great thing about shopping online is that you never have to leave your home and fight the crowds. Compared to other online shops, is not over priced for the shipping.

If you have already bought your Christmas t-shirts, mugs, calendars, greeting cards or other is never too early to think about next year!

Here are a couple of my Christmas and other shops to get some great gift ideas.

Come on Pose for the Picture! - I said SIT!

What are the holidays without a nice picture of your pet. After all...they are family.

I wanted to take a nice picture of my dog Buddy. I had him in a nice sitting pose. But to my dismay, the batteries in the camera were dead. So, I told Buddy to stay and frantically searched the house for batteries.

For 20 minutes...Buddy did not budge. He was a very patient model.

When I finally had fresh batteries in the camera and really for that nice picture...Buddy decided that he had waited long enough.

I told him to sit. He decided that it was play time and went for his toy. Then he did sit in the opposite direction that I wanted him to do.

Once I finally got him back into the right pose, Buddy decided to lay down and roll over.

How well behaved are your pets on picture taking day?

      Poor Buddy! He tried to be good! Nice merchandise. I much prefer shopping from in front of my computer to braving the crowds. Not to mention that I live in a small town and would have to drive about 100 miles each way to get the selection I could have delivered to me online. And way more unique!

      [in reply to saraht43] They are like little kids. Do little kids always mind? But I think that would be harder to get a hamster to pose.

      Great lens, I love cafe press. As for pet pics, my hamster wont pose and my puppy wont sit, he wonts right up on the camera to see what I'm doing. Sigh. Oh, well LOL.
