About Angel Black Designs

New beginnings are happening every day . . .
grab hold of one and make a positive change.”
My name is Dawn Marie and I was born in New York City.  I am a self taught artist and poet.  I began painting and creating poetry in 2005. Natural painting ability runs 3 generations deep.  In 2008, I pursued my desire to be creative and started jewelry making. With over 14 years of retail and business experience, the wonderful result was Angel Black Designs.  My creative environment consists of my two animated Lovebird parrots, Myley and Delilah. They have inspired some of the designs and paintings and are a never ending supply of energy and antics. When I design, I am transported to another world and I try to bring out that in my pieces.  I have learned many techniques and skills which I am constantly perfecting.  I hope that my passion for life, love and the world around me comes through when you view my work.
Some people ask me what my favorite color is.  I simply answer “I am an artist, I love all colors. They just change from day to day or even hour to hour.”
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  May your journey be a wonderful one and don’t forget to follow your dreams!

Black Is In For 2016

Why black is obviously our favorite color. Even I had my favorite peach made dressed in all black over at Custom Amiibo.

Accessories are not only there to add on to your outfit. There’s also a good logical reason something ought to be worn and in some cases, be omitted entirely. Listed here are four explanations why a black shawl is a popular choice for women.

It is Basic.

A black shawl is a fundamental piece of accessory. When you want to wear something that can keep you warm without looking too bulky, a black shawl can be the best choice. If you want to look more decent, and you have on a dress that is anything like that, you can wear a black shawl to cover up and still look fashionably sexy. The color itself is very necessary. Black is one of the most famous choices of color, and it is the most essential as everyone should have black in their closet. It is like your little black dress or your favorite jeans. It is that basic as can be.

It is Simple.

A black shawl also is a lot easier than most accessories. Wearing one doesn’t need a great deal of fuss because it is intended to be just draped over your shoulder. You can just tie a knot to secure them in position, or you can simply hold it every once in awhile. This is ideal for someone that doesn’t give too much importance to the art of dressing up or you just put on whatever that you could find and what is convenient and event appropriate.

It is Traditional.

There are lots of cases when a black shawl is viewed to be traditional. In certain beliefs, a black shawl is among the key pieces of clothing that one must wear when visiting a burial and mourning their dead. Mostly, it’s worn by placing it on top of their head instead of the usual which is to drape it over the shoulder.Besides that, it’s also a conventional manner of dressing up. For people who have a conventional way of dressing up and accessorizing, a black shawl is certainly one item that is most certainly always on the list of what to wear.

It is Versatile.

The most important reason for the popularity of black shawls is its versatility. Not only is it because it is in black which you can practically match with anything, but it can also be worn in many ways and many occasions. You can even wear it casually and in formal circumstances. You can wear it while wearing jeans and then wearing it with a gown. That is the beauty of versatility.

It saves you from splurging on more items, and it also answers your wardrobe dilemmas. Especially today that everyone is experiencing a financial recession, it is very important that one must know how to help herself when it comes to adjusting and being able to maintain her lifestyle even if on a tight budget. With a black shawl, you can do all these; be able to stick to your fashionable self and at the same time being practical with it.

Why Buy A Bowflex Treadmill?

Bowflex has been designing and building state of the art, engineered exercise equipment since 1986 when they first exploded on the scene with their revolutionary Bowflex home gyms. Since then however, the company has branched out in multiple directions in the exercise equipment arena with new and improved versions of several standard forms of equipment including of course treadmills.

A Reputation for Quality and Durability

Bowflex currently features three models of solidly constructed treadmills in their lineup that range in price from $1100 to $1999 MSRP. Also, just like all other items of equipment that carry the Bowflex name, their treadmills have a reputation worldwide for quality and durability.

Bowflex Treadmills Comfort and Convenience Features

However; aside from quality, Bowflex treadmills also have several unique standard features that designate them the preferred product in a crowded market. Its these comfort and convenience features that are going to allow you to get far more use out of your Bowflex treadmill and you can see more on our Bowflex m5 site then you would with a lesser quality competing product.

Strike Zone Padded Deck Suspension

This is highly important, because repetitive motion injuries are something that you should be proactive about, particularly if you are over the age of thirty.

Other Standard Features

Bowflex treadmills also feature a three speed built in cooling fan option that makes longer workouts so much more pleasant. Other standard comfort and convenience features include 12 level intensity setting, hydraulic resistance, multiple speed settings, LCD readout windows, as well as incline adjustment up to 45 degrees just to name a few.

Another option is you don’t have to worry if you get the Bowflex PR 1000 Model. However; there are a few non tangible features that you can’t see that help to set Bowflex treadmills apart from the crowd.

A Guide To Canopy Bed Curtains

If you are looking for a cheap and easy way to update your bedroom décor, then why not consider a suspended canopy bed curtain? Easy available from both high street and online retailers, these gauzy, light weight bed curtains are designed in such a way that you can either wrap them around a four-poster bed – or the cheaper version – simply suspend them from hooks screwed into the ceiling above your existing bed. You get an instant new look in your room for about $20-50!


Canopy bed curtains come in a range of colors, to coordinate with your bedroom, and styles. There are super feminine, pink and frilly ones – perfect for a little princess – or there are simple sheer panels that are less feminine and more suited to a grown-up’s bedroom. While checking out the bedroom you can also spice up the living room with an awesome Couch and Loveseat Set.

Some styles of canopy curtains hang from a rectangular or hoop shaped frame which is suspended from the ceiling – a rectangular frame will make the curtain hang more squarely over a bed, whilst a hoop frame can be set toward the top end of the bed to create a less structured feel.

There are also some bed curtains that are simply suspended from four hooks in the ceiling above the four corners of the bed – I particularly like this look as it is the least structured and in the right lighting can almost look like the canopy curtain is floating in the air like a gentle cloud.

Most canopy bed curtains come in sizes to suit all kinds of beds and are made from polyester netting, so are easy to clean, either by hand, in the washing machine or dry cleanable. They also serve the additional purpose of acting a mosquito guard if you live in warm climates. It is also possible to customize your canopy bed curtain with ribbons, appliqué motifs and beads, so you can let your imagination run wild and really create a super new look for your boudoir!
