New Stuff

I have some new pieces listed on Etsy - pics below. My favorite is the bracelet I made with one of my lampwork owl beads from Jawjee! My biggest frustration is that it is dark when I go to work and dark when I get home so I have no good light to take pictures during the week (until I get around to making that light box). So I brought my pieces to work today to take pictures by a window at lunchtime. Great use of an intercompany mailer for a background, don't ya think?

I took several older pieces off my Etsy site to clean it up a bit AND I'm taking a bunch of stuff into the Art Center tomorrow so I thought some might need some new eyes looking at them. I volunteered at the Art Center gift shop again on Saturday and the holiday market it going great! For the month of November, we sold a little over $10,000 worth of merchandise which well exceeded our goal and expectations this year with the economy. I am so glad people are choosing local art instead of Walmart!
In other news, my book from Snapfish arrived today and it is so beautiful! Here's a peek - it's so surreal to see your own things printed in such a professional manner. It's amazing how far pictures have come! Well, I'm off to price my things for the Art Center.....

I am loving that owl bracelet!! You knew I would! :)
Great book too. What will you do with that book, just hang on to it and show stores that will sell your work?
That's such a great idea.

Thanks Lorelei!
Yes, I will use the book for potential stores and probably bring it with me to Art Fairs.
