Smile today!

Hooray!!  The weekend is finally here!


And to kick it off ‘right’…I wanted to send you a happy little thought we’d like to call:  ‘Smile Today.’  I’ve posted a few of these DJ Daily Smiles to our gallery, Facebook and Pinterest.  (I know the word ‘daily’ is deceiving…but DJ whenever-I-can-get-to-it just didn’t sound right!)  It makes me SO happy when I can pass on a smile and see them pop-up DJ Smile Today 5on all the social media places. I created this one with DJ Early Years Art (which is, happily, on SALE this week! Yeahoo!) and our NEW DJ Simple font.


Will you help me out?  Please leave me a comment on the DJ Blog with your favorite saying or quote. I’d love to use some of YOUR inspiring words to create future DJ Daily Smiles.  There’s a CONTEST below with a great prize involved if you DO!  ;)


If you want to create your own DJ Daily smile with your favorite DJ clip art and DJ fonts (ohhh please do!!), simply save it as a jpg and email it to  We will share it with the whole fabulous DJ world!


May your weekend be restful and full of whatever helps your recover from a long week!


Big heart and smiles to YOU!

Sharing Smiles & a BIG DJ Inker’s Giveaway!

DJ Friends….


Hope your first weeks of 2014 are going absolutely fabulous!   I loved an ad I saw a few days ago that said ’HAPPY YOU YEAR‘!   In my head I thought “if only”…seems like everyone and everything gets attention before I give any to myself.  I’m sure you can relate.   But it IS a new year and new resolve that each day, one smile at a time, I can change the world.  It’s the one thing I know I can do each day for sure.


So I’m asking you to help me by joining the DJ Inker’s affiliate program!  Share the smiles with me.  It’s free & easy to do (call and talk to my darling Dee if you need help)!  I know many of you (especially teachers) have blogs and websites where you create amazing things and share with your friends… & that’s all you need to get started.  PLUS… you can earn a little extra money too!  It’s win-win!  Sharing the smiles is what it’s all about.  :)


And my next new TAAA-DA is…(drumroll please)!  A fantastic giveaway!  We (well, Alix my webmaster) finally figured out the little widget so entering is easy for YOU and we have a better selection process for our winner.  Yeahoo!  Because our Kidoodlez Language Arts collection is newly available as a DOWNLOAD, we thought we’d go all-out and give one away to one lucky winner.  Enter right away & tell your friends!Language Arts samples

It’s going to be a GREAT year.  We are so grateful for supportive and incredible customers like YOU!  A big grin and thanks for the comments and heart that you share with us!



Smiles & Heart!

New Mermaid Clip Art Smiles

Darling Friends…


JunescrapsampleHope this note finds you smiling, happy and warming up with the weather! Summer and all it’s fun has definitely arrived!  Anytime the high temperature is 90 degrees in the afternoon, that’s summertime to me.


And summertime means ‘beach’ time!  I don’t know how this happened exactly…but every one of my children are ‘water babies’.  They would be SO happy if every activity and place we went together had something to do with the water.  It’s the biggest reason we all moved from the mountains in the west, to the beach crazed Florida (lol!).



So it was fabulous fun to create this month’s SNIPPET collection featuring mermaids and under the sea selections.  Ohhh… I just love them!  The first time my mom read ‘The Little Mermaid’ to me…I was obsessed!  It seemed (and they still are to me) the best mythical creature ever created.  I hope you enjoy this collection as much I did drawing it.   And if you’re wondering….yes I did have the Little Mermaid soundtrack going on in the background while I was drawing this set  :)  !!


Enjoy the desktop background FREEBIE that my daughter Alixess created for you with the Snippets set too.  It’s too cute!  As well as the oobber darling other sea clip art collections we have for you.


Under the sea… under the sea!!  Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter.. take it from me!


Sunshine and smiles to YOU
