BOGO for BLOGGERS!!!

I recently closed my print shop on etsy. It was a hard decision as it was my original shop and had over 1000 hearts and 300 positive feedback. But I’m trying to move away from ‘The Bag Lady’ and it had to be done. I don’t want to have to list the prints I have left as my art is moving in a different direction and I’m on to new adventures. So, for this weekend only I’m having a BLOGGER SALE EVENT! 30% off the entire shop of original artwork, and A FREE PRINT WITH MATT for every piece purchased! The print will be of my choosing but all are 8×10 professional photo prints that I have a printing company do for me. Each will come backed by archival chipboard, matted and in a protective sleeve. The 30% discount will be reimbursed via PayPal after the order is placed, just check out as normal and I will do the rest.

When you go to pay for your purchase type the word ‘BLOGGER’ into the comment section so I’ll know you came by way of my blog. Feel free to spread the word, I don’t have many originals left. The sale will last until Sunday, after that I will be closing the shop for a few days to revamp it and list some new work. Several of the items in the shop have been featured in magazines so you may recognize them.

Thank you as always for your continued friendship and support of my work, it’s greatly appreciated!

Passing Time

I spent several hours waiting for a flight with some empty seats on it this past weekend. We had a great time at the EAA Airshow in Wisconsin, walked our feet off! Now I am packing again to go to Washington and visit my family. When I get home there will be the flurry of school clothes shopping, end of summer boating and before I know it summer will be over. I have to say, we have not experienced many of those ‘endless’ summer days. Each one seems filled with activities but I manage to squeeze in some art time every day. Even if it’s just a quick little bit of journaling.
I hope you are finding time for art. It does not have to be a BIG block of time, just a few minutes spent in your journal can make all the difference in your creative state of mind.

I am participating in the Melange Team Etsy Sales Event August 7-9 even though I will be gone. I am offering 15% off both my Art Shop and my Print Shop.
Refunds to be made through PayPal.

New Shop Promotion Sale!


I’ve just added some ATC’s and prints to my Print Shop. I also have two more orders coming any day and will be adding a few more of my limited edition prints.

As for my new Art Shop, I have added a couple of new pieces this past week and to promote my new shop I am offering 30% off of an original piece to my blog readers! This will only be offered here and will end on Friday, June 5th. Just mention that you heard about the offer on my blog and I will refund your 30% savings through Paypal.

This is the last day of school, summer is truly here for us despite the rain. I am keeping busy with preparing for my summer workshop, Pursuing Portraits and as always my art journal. I just got a fabulous new product, Derivan Liquid Pencil. I did this quicky journal page last night and am loving this stuff. It is actual graphite pencil, in a liquid form that you can paint with! It literally took about 15 minutes.

Tax Day, I filed an extension…

Ok, I am so behind, just plain old a lot going on right now. I know you can relate. So, our tax guy and my D.H. can never get together because D.H. is flying all the time so we can make more money so we can pay more to the government, LOL! Note my son’s drawing of daddy’s airplane. It’s not really funny, but the point is we filed an extension to relieve some stress. I also noticed a couple of days ago that I had reached another blog milestone of 30,000 hits since I installed my counter and had planned to do a giveaway, but I just did a giveaway to 7 people on facebook, so I’m going to do a sale instead. I filed an extension on that too:-) So today, tax day and extending it to tomorrow at 5:00pm I will give not one, but all of you, my blog readers 50% off of ANYthing in my shop! One item discount per person and the discount will be credited back to your paypal account after the item is purchased. Fun huh? I’m not advertising this in my shop, it is for my blog readers, to show how much I appreciate you all.

Yart Sale

Just a quick little blurb, I am having a Yart Sale in my Etsy Shop. I want to reorganize a bit and will have several new pieces to add when they come back from the publishers. So if you’ve had your eye on something, click on the title and it will take you to my etsy shop and look under Yart sale:-)
