Hello my friends! Thank you all for sticking with me, as we enter another year! Since I started in 2012 I’ve gained 172 followers! Thank you all so much for your friendship! Here is my year in review for 2016! Other than birthday cards for folks, I really haven’t done many paintings this year. I guess I’ve gotten a little discouraged when it comes to fine art. People don’t seem to be buying them like they used to. So I’m trying to express my art in other directions. I’m trying to become a book illustrator. However, I’m still making hand carved jewelry and selling them on my mom and dad’s Etsy shops:
Here are a few examples of what I’ve made this year:
We also are selling some vintage Barbie’s and accessories in our Cottage Made Gifts, shop. They were found in the attic of a very old house and kept safe in a Barbie Case.
This year, I’ve been working hard on becoming a book illustrator. I’m also trying to self publish my own children’s book called, The Monster. I’m hoping to get it published by March of 2017.
Thank you guys again! Praying for many blessings this New Year!
