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

Creating art has become more than just a hobby. It's a really lovely feeling and something I have wished for since childhood.

As a stay at home housewife, I also find that having a zazzle store makes me a bit more focused on the things I need to get done in my life, like housework etc. You kind of think, "Well, if I get all this stuff done in this amount of time, then I have this many hours for left in the day designing". So I have created an almost normal 'working day' routine for myself. Leaves little room for procrastination and time wasting, which I have been very guilty of in the past.

It's also very rewarding to know that there are people in the world who actually enjoy my work enough to part with their hard earned cash. Makes it all worthwhile.

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)
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)
Probably my 'Magic Carpet Cat' design. I enjoyed it because I kept giggling at it as I was making it. I really love putting everyday things in odd places or situations, the absurdity of it all makes me happy. So this one of my cat riding a magic carpet whilst wearing a genii's turban made me very giddy indeed.
