I did my first one yesterday - a replica of "Let's Patch Things Up" in fall colors. I knew it would be a lot different than watercolors, and at first I thought I didn't like it as much, but it turned out okay in the end (I'm never happy until my hand is cramping from adding the pen details anyway)! I need to work on doing backgrounds though... I'm used to leaving it white on watercolors, but I don't like that look on canvas, so that will be a work in progress!
If anyone has any starter advice about Etsy - I'd love to hear it! Just comment or email me!

And according to the article I read, her husband thinks it's funny, too. It's important to be a good sport. :)

On google analytics, I can break down my visitors on the map to find out just how many visits I've gotten from cities around the world! I've been using google analytics for a while - how did I not notice this until now?! It's amazing to see traffic coming in from all around the world from Guayaquil, Ecuador to Nairobi, Kenya to Graz, Austria to Invercargill, New Zealand... on and on.
It seems that now I'll be getting a geography lesson along with tracking my page stats!
And Yay for 10,000 global visits! :)

These are actually business cards ("chubby" sized) that make great little handouts for updated information. I originally made them for myself when we moved back in March. I got good feedback on them, so I made a few more...

& Rebecca Duffy Bush on a tour of their new permanent gallery space - River

Carolina. Featuring 30 of Wilmington's most talented 2D & 3D artists, the

My husband and I have collected quite a few things over the years from Becky & Tim, and in June we visited the gallery and got a few more things from the pottery collections there! Here are a few pictures...
So, if you are ever in the area, go check out the gallery!
A fellow artist on zazzle, Zenyaris was kind enough to feature my love birds for two weeks in their gallery - very cool. Since then, I've gotten several sales on these postcards - even cooler!
I also sold this design for the first time ever..
Over at Red Bubble, the All About Hearts group featured my Love Fireworks (it was voted in the top 10 for the "Young at Heart" challenge) and I just realized I'm a featured member of the group, too- awesome!
And lastly, I have a video to post of my sister-in-law's gallery down in Wilmington, NC... but I think I'll make another post for that... stay tuned!
