First, a bit of housekeeping before I get into the post. If you have a Wordpress blog, I'm having a terrible time commenting on your posts. Carole, Gigi, Erin, Gretchen and many others, I've tried. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I'm logged into Wordpress, but it doesn't matter if I click the icon next to my photo or reply (or both), it won't go through. I've logged off and back in -- no matter. So, I'm still reading but if you don't see a comment from me, don't give up on me! (It's nice to know Blogger isn't the only one with periodic issues!)
This week, I'm on a post art sale high. We had a wonderful time at Mistletoe Market, seeing many friends and making new ones, too.
My friend Judy popped in from Ludington and I also saw my best junior high friend and her boyfriend -- with whom I went to high school, work colleagues and lots of theatre friends.
Several Cork Poppers came out, too! Cheryl bought a beautiful scarf from my fellow vendor, Vicki.
I was pleased that my felties were quite popular! These little needlefelted ornaments can also be used as pin cushions and most are flat enough to just "sit" someplace.
I took some of my old mixed media pieces and radically marked them down, just to get a bit more real estate in my closet. And they sold!
And people seemed happy with my note cards and watercolor "frameables" (original watercolors on a greeting card that are a card and gift in one.)
I was disappointed I didn't sell more paintings, but I also get it -- wall space is at a premium for most of us and things either work or don't.
Some of my out-of-town and online blog friends have asked if I sell online. I don't have an Etsy shop. But what I do offer is a pdf or link to the seasonal "Gypsy Caravan" (which is also located on the menu bar above during the holiday season). If you see something you like, let me know. I will add postage to the cost and you can just send me a check for the total. (Or if you are local or relatively regional we can meet up, which is even more fun!)
And in answer to a previously asked question, yes, I will ship international. But I can almost guarantee you that the postage would be considerably more than when you purchased unless it was only a greeting card or two!
No pressure, just letting you know! And now, we're off to tend to cute little boys! Let the merriment and the exhaustion begin!
