It's not like I've closed my Etsy shop or anything, but it's been pretty much neglected since July. But now that my show season is over with, I can take time to do other things like actually clean my house, maybe cook a meal, and list items in my Etsy store.
My show from last weekend wasn't the most profitable, but it was very enjoyable, and I love being a part of it--a very good quality art show---I'm hoping to go back next year. But in the end, I did have art pieces left, and if you want to take a look, you can find them HERE.....and here they are all together....
These are all listed in my Etsy shop.
So this week I'm still in the art-making mode for customers---I have a fairly large order from 2 lady friends that ordered some pieces from me a couple of months ago--and that's what I've been doing this week--
.....need to be shipped by next Monday----I met these 2 ladies this year, and they have been some of my best customers---and I appreciate how much they appreciate my art--I make them smile, and they make me smile. This is one of the reasons that I like getting out and doing these shows--the great people that I meet, along with exceptional fellow artists!
But I'm also taking time for my gift. I read Pam Carriker's post at the Sketchbook Challenge all about gift giving and what you can do for yourself during this hectic time of year---taking time to do whatever you enjoy most--even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. And what relaxes me is sketching faces--
I love sketching just for the sake of sketching. You can read Pam's full article HERE.
And one more thing---I have lots more time for this little sweetie--
Zoie!! She turned 8 months old this week, and every time I see her, she seems to have grown even more. It's fun being a Grandma!!
