Happy Resurrection Day! Here’s an awesome blog post by, Zealofthesaints.wordpress.com.
I’m now finished with my painting! Soon I’ll need to frame it and get it ready for the Art Show next month. Hopefully I can get my deer painting finished in time as well. My new Sable brush, that I mentioned earlier, did a good job, although…it wasn’t the same size that I had before. I think perhaps I’ll order another in a smaller size some time. But other than that, it’s what finished my painting and I think it turned out well. :)
Waited almost a month for my Kolinsky Sable Brush to arrive. I just got it yesterday. I love these watercolor brushes! Now I can finish my Chipmunk painting! :D
I haven’t used it yet but it should be a good one! I’ll let you all know how well it works later. ;)
I now have my original paintings and drawings in my Etsy shop, cottagemadegifts .
I’ll be adding more soon! ;)
I’m not quite finished with his fur yet. I’m hoping to put some foliage around him.
I’m still waiting for my special Sable Brush that I ordered last month, but now it says that it may not arrive until next month. Bummer! So my chipmunk painting that I had been working on, may be stalled for a while longer. :(
Here is an update on my latest painting. I got the berries mostly done, they may need a touch up here and there, and I started working on the chipmunk. I’ll need to work on the leaves, and satisfy myself on the final details and then it will all be done! :) Unless I can make due with the brushes I already have, finishing it may be slow. My favorite sable brush through the years has been loved too hard, and is now out of shape, and the poor thing isn’t working right for me anymore. So last month I ordered a new one off of amazon.com. The bad thing is that it’s being shipped from Europe, so it’s not expected to get here until the 20th. :( Mean while, I’ll see what I can do with what I’ve got or work on another project while I’m waiting. :)
Hello everyone! I just thought that before the year was over that I would mention my time at the Christmas Bazaar. This was my first time ever selling at the Bazaar, so I was pretty excited! Down below are pictures of my inventory.
I had a portfolio filled with art for sale and a few prints and postcards out on display. I was sharing the table with my friends, who was selling handmade soap and candy, so our table space was tight.
Sorry about the white streaks, there was sunshine pouring in my window. My pictures also aren’t very good. :D
I’m happy to report that I sold a print while I was there, and some postcards! :)
People showed interest in my other things too, but the folks around there aren’t big spenders. I didn’t sell alot, but I had fun talking with the town’s people. I also enjoyed hanging out with my friends.
I would love to have a table at the Bazaar again!
My family and I have enjoyed making different hand-crafted items for our little Etsy shop this year and last.
These needle felted animals were made by my mom. She does such a good job! ( if I do say so myself) ;)
We’ve had our shop now for a whole year and 18 days! Woohoo!!! :) We weren’t sure what to expect our first year. We’re so thankful for the sales that we’ve made, and have had a pretty good experiance using Etsy.
Several years ago, my uncle gave us some vintage Barbie dolls that he had found in the attack of an old house. Being too old to play Barbie Dolls now, we decided to sell them.
My items on Etsy consist of Giclee Prints, and Crochetted items.
My sister is a very gifted writer and specializes in children’s books. She illustrates them herself and has selfpublished 3 books so far! :D I’m so very proud of her, she really puts a lot of care and time into her stories and illustrations.
She also has a blog that I hope you’ll follow too! @: theresasart.wordpress.com
I’m very happy with the oppertunity to sell our art online.
To all the other bloggers who have Etsy shops too, I hope you do well this next year! :)
Happy New Year!
