Goodbye Bug Hunt! Group

It’s been great fun but it’s time for me to go as Host, so please welcome DriftingAudrey into the role of new Bug Hunt! Group Host, I can already see a new vitality on the Group Page inspiring me to get back out into the garden with my camera, a big thanks for taking over the Host job Audrey and keep up the Bug Hunt everyone!
Thanks a lot,

CLOSED MY GROUPS - bmail to takeover

Hello lovely Red Bubblers!
Due to my new commitments in life, that is my shop The Octopi Garden I am unable to continue hosting the groups I have for the past few years and have made the decision to close them all (except Beautiful Boxers, Bullies and Staffies for now) since I have been so inactive. It’s not fair on members when I can’t do Features or participate in them as much as I’d like to.
If you would like to take any of them on, please bmail me and I’ll transfer them over to you.…

Australia! You’re Standing In It…
Bug Hunt!
Creative Spirits
Holiday Sights
Rain Drops
Space Works!

Thanks for everyone’s support over the years, you will still find me adding the odd work to RB and making some comments when I can but hosting so many groups has just become too much for me to do at this point, may

Where Am I?

Hello Red Bubblers,
It’s been months since I’ve put a new work on RB and also have been very inactive of late and thought I’d let you know why.
My time has been taken up by a new venture I took on, opening a shop!
Back in June my friend Hayley and I opened The Octopi Garden Sanctuary in our small Far Nth Qld town of Ravenshoe and I’ve hardly had time for anything else.
It’s been a real thrill as I always dreamed of having my own shop and Hayley is the best business partner, we have so many ideas, the shop is always abuzz with new activity and we hope it will grow with our creative nurturing and dreaming.
It’s called The Octopi Garden Sanctuary and is a place that everyone is welcome in, we have organic fruit and vegies, whole foods, a great variety of unusual and beneficial products and most o…

My Christmas Wish Collection!

I want to introduce A Christmas Wish Collection to you all! This year I wanted to create a simple graphic digital design and came up with this little snow covered tree, living in Far North Queensland in Australia, we don’t have snow on Christmas trees and it’s always been a wish I had, to see a White Christmas!

Best Wishes to everyone for the coming Holiday Season and thanks for looking!

SALES THANKS for the last 2 weeks!

I’m always thrilled to make a sale on Red Bubble with so much competition out there, so I was particularly happy this fortnight selling 2 iphone cases and a photographic print and I want to thank the mystery buyers VERY MUCH!

Medusa Once Was Beautiful Photographic Print

Space Glitter iphone case – my 2nd sale of this design

Where is my Group ID Picture Gone?

For some unknown reason I cannot get an ID picture to appear for my Space Works group. It just has a big black and white RB. I’ve noticed some other groups I’m in also have this.
I have tried everything to get a picture there, using the main URL address of the work, as I have for my other 5 groups. Is there some new trick I’m missing or something?
I am am my wits end with this, can anyone help fix this problem please?
Thanks alot,
Vanessa :O)
