What affect has zazzle had on your life in 25 words or more

It started out as a way to make some extra money for the household, as I am unable to work outside the home. I am a graphic designer/photographer. My husband used to say Zazzle was my "hobby" and to not spend so much time on it. But, after designing and adding products every day, my "hobby" is now able to pay some bills. It makes me feel like I'm contributing to the household after working all of my life. Zazzle is also a way for me to continue my creative outlet. I cannot imagine life without Zazzle and corresponding with the wonderful people here. And, I'm having fun doing it!

Negative affect? yard is in a shambles!

In an average week how much time do you put into your shops including making designs, adding them to your store, advertising, reading the forums, doing other research or zazzle related work?
(estimate the average week where do you fall)
30-40 hours (4-6 hours per day)
What percentage of time do you spend designing/adding products vs advertising/working on referral sites (this includes blogs twitter forums websites and other means of advertising)
75% adding designs 25% advertising
What was your favorite design to make & why? (whether it has sold or not pick just 1 & include the link to the product page NOT the image link)

I loved making this wedding invitation and it just happens to be my best-selling product. It probably appears that this invitation would be fairly easy to make, but I had to photograph the orchid from many different angles. Then, the image had to be edited in PhotoShop with several layers and styles to make it soft enough to accept the text so you can easily read it. Now you are ready to upload the image to Zazzle and and actually start the design process of the invitation.
How many shops do you have on zazzle?
List your shop urls 1 per line with a 5-10 word description after each
(use format - designs for people who love dogs) - my main store, many misc. items - new Wedding store - new store for posters, etc.
