Sandy Merten (Spider) lives and Zazzles in Green Bay, WI.
After a career designing homes and buildings and working on engineering projects, Sandy turned to online commerce for a change of pace. As she developed various online sites and businesses, Sandy discovered print on demand sites. She decided to explore her creative side and opened Cafepress shops in 2008 and a year later Sandy opened her first Zazzle shop SandySpider Gifts.
Calling herself a creative artist wannabe, Sandy created her first design on
Zazzle of a Snowflake Zombie. There had been record breaking snowfall and Sandy envisioned a snowflake with wicked eyes and mouth biting people as it fell to the ground.
Sandy works in photography, digital art and graphic design. She also likes to experiment with patterns, and unusual ways of taking photos. On a trip to a botanical garden, she took her photos through a kaleidoscope. The diversity of techniques Sandy uses to create images has helped the SandySpider Gifts shop grow to include a wide variety of themes.
Digital effects, color play and digital collage are favourite techniques of Sandy. She also enjoys creating Pop art designs.
Sandy also enjoys nature and animal photography and sharing her beautiful shots in her Zazzle shop.
The best selling item in Sandyspider Gifts is a chocolate truffle postcard.
In September 2010, Sandy opened her second shop on Zazzle to celebrate her self described warped sense of humor and the funny sides of life. The shop is called FunnyJokes and will tickle your funny bone.
