Newsblog

Hey all... I should've made this post last month, but better late than never...

So I used to send out an email "newsletter" type of thing with updates and such (coupon codes, new designs, holiday info. etc), but I just don't know how to make all that look pretty in emails. And when you're sending out updates on your artwork, there should probably be pretty pictures involved, right?

So in December I switched it to a newsblog instead. If you don't feel like reading through the posts on this blog, you can visit my end of the month newsblog and get the information there, all condensed and full of pretty pictures. :)

If you want to be notified when this blog is updated, you can either "follow" the blog, or you can join my mailing list, and I will email you (only once a month) when I post.

Thanks for the interest!!

IF: Focused

This week's theme on Inspiration Friday is "focused". This is not a new painting, but I think it's fits... It's nice when you have nothing else to focus on except for the morning sun. :)

Question! What happened to the Inspire Me Thursday themes? Did the website move, or is no one updating? What a shame!

New Design!


There is a woman I know who's about to go into labor at any minute! Each day, I go into work expecting that she will not be there, but the baby is taking its' sweet time arriving. :) So here's my latest painting... called "Any Day Now", of a momma bird who's got everything all ready for her eggs to hatch.

I'm a ProSeller!

Luckily today I actually checked my spam folder before I deleted it and found an email from Zazzle letting me know I've reached the first level (bronze) of Pro-Seller status! I'm not really 100% sure what all the benefits of this are, but I do get to log in to a ProSeller forum to connect with other prosellers to get tips, and I get this super-cool, elite icon to post wherever I want to...
Woo!
And look how cute it looks next to my shop name... Yay. :)
After a long, hard week at my day job, this has definitely brightened my day. And it's inspired me to try and find more time to work a little harder (and perhaps get to the silver status at some point)! So THANKS to everyone who's purchased my designs - It is always exciting and flattering, and I appreciate it more then you know!
