Seller Spotlight: CuteNComfy

by

Angela (CuteNComfy) received a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and then ran a successful business, handling both residential and commercial design. Once she had kids, she decided to spend more time at home. Having an eye for color, style and design placement, she decided to try her hand at Zazzle. 

I have been designing on Zazzle since 2007. I love photography and am often taking pictures of flowers, landscapes and interesting objects.

I love the thought of someone wearing a t-shirt or having coffee in a mug that I designed. When a gift becomes someone’s “favorite hat” or “favorite keychain,” it makes me feel like I helped make someone’s day a little brighter. I also love doing party and wedding invitations of all sorts. It’s always amazing when someone chooses my design to represent their special event.

I love working with colors of all sorts. I think bright neon colors are extremely fun and refreshing, but there are times I design in bold black and white, or use lots of neutrals and muted shades. It just depends on what I am working on. In general, my style would be “elegant simplicity.” I also enjoy integrating black into a lot of my designs. I think it adds a certain element of sophistication. Sometimes I like to keep things fun and light if I’m designing around a special occasion.

My advice to other sellers would be to find what you enjoy and are good at, and go from there. It takes a lot of hard work and patience to be successful in anything, and the same applies to Zazzle.

Here are some of my favorite products:

I have been venturing more into creating my own animals and character illustrations and this cute baby fox is one of my favorites.

I love bright colors, especially contrasted with black. This print reminds me of growing up in the ’80s.

This design is great for Earth Day, or just for anyone who loves nature. I love creating apparel designs like this with some character and a vintage, worn look.

I enjoy creating products where a customer can add their own photo or text. I really like this because it’s so fresh and bright.

I love incorporating photography into my designs. This orchid lasted much longer in print than it did in my house.
