Good things are happening! Sketches and new Etsy Shop!

Good things are happening all around!  Spring is here.

I've been sketching in my flippy-floppy book. I'm feeling really excited by this format.


We saw the Hunger Games this past weekend.  It was our first trip to the movie theater in about 3 years!  That's what having a baby will do.  I loved the movie.  I also loved the book.


The Featuring Magazine now has a Facebook page and an image of the front cover has been posted.  Go over to Facebook to "Like" the page and get updates.

And.. I set up my own ETSY shop.  Ta Da!  That was one thing that I had on my to-do list over Spring Break.  I wanted to take baby steps to set up a shop.  One, I of course, wanted to sell some artwork and maybe get prints and greeting cards made up.  But also, I have a huge collection of vintage postcards which I haven't used in the past 15 years I've had them.  I use one here or there, but they are just sitting in a box in my house, so I may as well move some of them. If some sells, great, I will buy more art supplies, but it's not the end of the world if it doesn't.  It's nice that it's so cheap to list things and I like how the listings stay up for 4 months.   Since I put the postcards up last week I've already had two sales.  Yay!  And I realized I needed to charge more for shipping.  oops!  It's a learning process I guess.  Here are some of the items in my shop and slowly I'm going to add more postcards and other stuff.  I promise I won't spam the blog with Etsy advertising.   So, add me to your circle if you wish.  I'm trying to figure out the whole Etsy thing.. it's a whole other community there.  And every time I go on there to search for shops and do some research I end up wanting to buy lots more stuff!
