I Did It!!---I Now Have an Etsy Store

It  only  took  me  5  days  longer  than  I  thought  it  would,  but  I  did  it  all  by  myself  with  a  little  help  from  the   most  wonderful   Theresa   from   Faerie Moon Creations.  Look  Theresa--I  did  it  and  it  was  without  my  son  telling  me  how  to  do  it.

So  right  now  it's  a  very  small shop  with  only  5  items,  but  it's  a  start....right?  I  kind  of  forgot  how  busy  this  month  can  get.  I've  been  Christmas  shopping  for  the  last  3  days  straight--I  gotta  big  list,  but  I  really  do  enjoy  this  whole  Christmas  thing.

But  I  was  able  to  make  2  new  pieces  for  my  shop  (how  cool--I  have  a  shop  now!)   They're  on  4 x 12  canvases,   and  I'm  so  happy  with  them--

I   just  had  fun  with  painting    faces  and  collaging  papers  and  combining  my  two  favorites--faces  and  houses  with  some  hearts  thrown  in  of  course.

 













So  to  get  to  my  Etsy  shop  all   you  have  to  do is  go to  my  sidebar  and  you'll  see  the  link.  I'm so  proud  of  that--Theresa  told  me  what  to  do  : )


Or  you  can  just  go  here.   This  is  so  fun!!

And  another  thing  that  I'm  proud  of  is  that  I  reached  my other  goal.   Last  year  I  had  2  goals--to  start  a  blog  and  to  open  up  an  Etsy  shop.   Well,  it's  been  exactly  a  year,  but  I  did  it!!

Etsy is a great way to sell..I especially like it because it lets potential customers see my work and if they are from another country, Paypal figures the conversions and makes it all so easy. Your work looks great and will show well on Etsy.
