Love the Ocean!

Most of my life I rarely ventured outside the state of Illinois. My best friend and sister moved to Florid 9 years ago. Six months after she moved to Delray Beach, Florida I went for a visit! I left in March 2010 for my first visit. My girlfriend’s neighbor was apologizing to me because the weather was only in the 60’s! I told her this weather is beautiful especially since it was only 30 degrees in Illinois when I left.

The first thing my best friend wanted me to see was the ocean. I fell in love. I love the ocean and its beauty. It reminds me how beautiful God made the world. Whenever I look at the ocean I can see God’s awesome beauty. I look at the ocean and as I look I see no end. The ocean just keeps going on an on.

One night we stopped at the beach to watch the sunset. I cannot put into words the beauty and awesomeness that I experienced when I saw the sun setting over the ocean. It was glorious. Watching the sunset over the ocean you can just see God in all His Glory! The beauty and emotions that I felt as I was watching the sun set over the ocean cannot be expressed into words.

I would just love to live on the beach or at least have a home off one of the beaches on the ocean.  It would just make my day every morning to wake up to the sounds and sights of the ocean.  One day my dream just may come true.

I have many products on my Zazzle store featuring the beach scenes off the ocean.  I love the ocean so much, why wouldn’t I have these beautiful scenes for everyone to enjoy.  If you love the ocean, just click on any one of my items and enjoy the beauty of the ocean every day

MY FAVORITE PLACE

My favorite place to visit is the ocean in Florida.  My girlfriend moved to Florida 8 years ago.  My first visit to Florida was in 2010.  We went to the beach in Delray Beach, Florida.  I was so taken back by the beauty of the ocean.

As I look out at the ocean, I can see the beauty of God and God’s Greatness!  I can see the “awesomeness of My God.  On another trip to Florida, we went to the beach as the sun was setting.  Words cannot express the feeling I felt watching the sun set over the ocean.

My ultimate goal is to get a condo off the beach so I can wake up to the beauty of the ocean

IT’S BEEN A WHILE!

It’s been about 3 years since I have been active blogging about my Luna girl and my store!  There is so much to learn about marketing strategies on the internet.  Since I wasn’t having much luck with search engines and internet marketing, I decided to try the old traditional ways.  I couldn’t afford an actual “brick and mortar store” so I rented a booth at 3 different Pet shows that were well known in my area.  I knew there I would at least get exposure to people and they could see my work!

In 2013, I attended 3 pet shows where I displayed a majority of my items.   1 show was with the Windy City Pet Expo in July 2013.  The other 2 shows were with the Chicago Pet Show located in St. Charles and Darien Illinois.  Those shows were in September and November 2013.

I took time to prepare for those shows by concentrating on pet items for my store so I could display my items for these shows.  Its was a huge success in that many people stopped by my booth.  They loved the idea of pets on all these different items.  I was able to distribute many of my business and rack cards.  I also had a lot of people tell me how they lost their pets to cancer.

However, I received very few sales from these pet shows.  Many of the customers wanted to upload their own pictures of their pets on our items, which was great because our Zazzle items can be personalized and customized.  So I am not really sure what happened to all those sales.

I think I became disappointed with the lack of sales that I let everything slide.  I still want my store to be successful so I can donate to cancer research.   Since I work full time, trying to figure out SEO and other marketing strategies on the internet can be very difficult!  Its like your store is located on a remote island unless you can get “Google” or other search engines to bring your store to the “Main Island”.

I had read books and have searched the internet on search engine optimization.  Even with following the suggestions, it is extremely difficult to get you noticed on the first page.

Yes, I became very discouraged!  I had a setback last year in November as I had a heart attack!   I thought I was having heartburn when the whole time I was having a heart attack.  2 of my main arteries were 100% blocked and my main artery was 70% blocked.   I will save the story of my heart attack for another blog.  I was only concerned about getting my health back in order.  1 year later and 2 stents I am doing well.

This past year I was concentrating on my health!  Strangely, my store “out of the blue” started to get sales!  Slowly but surely!  I was wondering if God was trying to tell me something.  Obviously He saved my life!  So was He telling me now that He wants me to get back to work on My store?

So, here I am!  I am starting to revive my store again!  I am working on how to get out of that “remote island” and get to the “Main Island”.

You can find more information about my store on my  “About” Page.

Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CANCER WALK!

LUNA’S PAW PRINT IN HER MEMORY ON THE MEMORY TREE

I did it!  I completed the 2 mile Canine Cancer Walk with the 2 Million Dog Foundation!  It was an awesome event.  Lots of people and lots of dogs.  We were all there to “Puppy Up” against Cancer.  I know my precious Luna was walking right by my side!

As of yesterday, the West Dundee IL had raised a total amount of $18,316.  I’m sure by the time the event was completed, the amount will be higher.  I am definitely going back next year.  We will try to start fundraising earlier than we did this year in a hope to get more donations for this great cause.  So that someday we will no longer need these walks.

I am revamping my store!  When I have completed the process, I will let everyone know.  Part of the store will directed to raising monies for canine cancer.

We did a good job yesterday and proud of it.   This was for you my Luna girl! I love you and miss you so much and I will never give up on my mission  to “Retrieve a cure for cancer” in honor of “My Babygirl”

HURRICANE IN FLORIDA?

This will be a short blog because I don’t know when the electric may go out.  If you have read my blog “We love you, Luna girl” and “Going Back”, you will know that I am in Florida visiting my friends.  My trip has been extended due to the “Tropical Storm Issac” approaching us.  The bands from the storm have already started.

On Friday, we went hurricane shopping.  I have never experienced a hurricane or tropical storm.  There were a lot of people at all the stores getting tons of water, canned goods and other non-perishable items.  Once the storm hits, electricity could go out and stay off.  This could last for a week or more depending on the damage from the storm.  The water could get contaminated so that’s why you need to stock up your water supply.  “No Electricity” means no cooking, darkness and more. If electricity stays off for a long time, all your food in the freezer and refrigerator will end up spoiled.

Yesterday and today we worked on putting shutters on all the windows.  It looks like we are in jail.

I do feel very secure with the shutters bolted to the windows.  The strong winds haven’t started yet.   I’m sure I will be totally frightened when it starts.  It was a lot of work but well worth it.  I have taken some pictures while it is storming  and will take more after the storm hits.

I love visiting my friends in Florida but I can’t wait until the storm is over.  Every place has there good and bad points.  Florida’s bad points are the tropical storms and hurricanes.  I will blog again after the hurricane.

GOING BACK!

Beach view of Delray Beach

White wash ocean waves crashing to the shore

I am so very excited; it is only 4 days away until I go back to Delray Beach, Florida.  It has been 4 months since my last visit.  It seems like a year.  I miss my best friend and her family so much.  After 3 years, it is still very difficult to have your best friend of 25 years living over 1300 miles away.  The further away I have ever been was an hour drive away which is approximately 40-50 miles.

I leave for Florida on Thursday.  I miss the pups in Florida too.  I call them my Florida pups.  There is Harry, a beautiful British Golden Retriever, who is Luna’s baby brother.  Harry became so depressed when we lost our Luna girl.   In October 2011, Harry opened his home to his baby sister Billie!  She is so beautiful.  It was her 1-year-old birthday this month.  I haven’t seen Billie since April, I know she has grown so much in 4 months time.  Harry loves Billie so much and is very protective.  They have tons of fun together.

Baby Billie and Harry laying on couch together

I always bring stuffed animals to the pups.  We call them “babies”  I started that with Chooch, who was our golden before Luna.  Chooch lived to be 14 years old.  When I came to visit my best friend I would always bring a “Baby” for Luna and she knew it.  Every time I came over she went digging in my bag for her “baby”   I continued the “Baby Tradition” went they moved to Florida .  When Harry came to live with Luna I added another “Baby” for him.  He always wanted Luna’s Baby too.  I have continued the tradition with the Billie girl too.  So before I leave for Florida I have to make sure I get 2 “Babies” for my 2 “Fur Babies” in Florida.

Harry is very depressed, Luna has died and he is sucking on two of her babies.

We will be getting our tatoo of Luna’s paw print on Saturday.  In the time that I have visited my friends in Florida I have never seen a sunset over the ocean.  I’m going to ask if we can go to the ocean during a sunset.  I’m sure it will be a beauty to behold.  Oh yes, I will be taking tons of pictures.

I will be taking more pictures of the beauty of Florida.  I will have more designs to create with these beautiful pictures.  I will be adding them to my store when I get back.  You can visit my store today to see the beautiful landscape and beach designs that I already have for sale.

It will be a nice vacation for me.  I can get away from work for ten days,  visit with my friends and the fur babies.  I am counting the days.  I can’t wait to see the sunset over the ocean.  I will be writing about my vacation when I get back.

LION COUNTRY SAFARI

On one of my trips to Florida, we went to Lion Country Safari.  It is such an awesome place.

Have you ever seen “Jurassic Park” movie?  This is how the Lion Country Safari works.  At the entrance, you receive a CD which narrates each area of the compound.  Its like being in Africa.  All the animals with the exception of the Lions, roam free with no gates or cages.  Lions have an open area they can roam but there are fences surrounding them.  I believe that is because so they don’t eat all the other animals.

WELCOME TO LION COUNTRY SAFARI

ENTRANCE TO LION COUNTRY SAFARI

The cars must drive very slowly as the animals will cross the road right in front of you and can also come very close to your car.  It is an exciting experience. There are several different areas of the park.  These are just a few of the National Parks:

  • The Ruaha National Park – this  African wilderness is known for its variety of wildlife.
  • Serengeti Plains – this preserve is named for one of the most famous east African wildlife areas: the Serengeti
  • Hwange National Park – a famous reserve located in western Zimbabwe.
  • Gorongosa Reserve – Located in northern Mozambique, the Gorongosa is one of Africa’s famous wildlife areas
  • Gir Forest -a well-known National Park in India.
  •  Kalahari Bushveldt – a dry plateau roughly 500 square miles in size located in southwest Africa
  • Las Pampas – Grasslands cover about a quarter of the earth’s land mass and are called by many different names. In South America they are called Las Pampas.

I don’t remember which of the animals went to each National Park.  I am showing pictures that were taken while driving through the park.  There are antelopes, gazelles, lions, zebras, rhinos, giraffes, “wild ass”, gemboks.  I have also included some of the warning signs they have throughout the park.

While you view the pictures, keep in mind that we could not open windows or get out of the cars.  All the pictures were taken through our glass car windows.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get pictures of the lions without the fence in the way.

They also have a walk-thru Safari Walk which is different from the Drive-Thru Safari.  The Walk-Thru Safari has animal presentations, gifts shops, restaurants.  I would say if you go to West Palm Beach, Florida you definitely want to see the Lion Country Safari.
