while i hate to see holiday decor out in the stores too early...i must say, it really gets me geared up to create holiday items. as soon as october roles around....i am chomping at the bit, making things, with a head full of new ideas.....this year, so far i am concentrating on metal art. theses little creations are almost like jewelry for your walls, doors, tables etc.....embellished with mica, german silver glass glitter and sometimes rhinestones....perfect for holiday decor XO
i'm not really good at words...i do much better when expressing myself with a paint brush. Anyway ....i will try to make this blog my canvas too...at least post a few pictures from time to time....
yesterday, in the rain...i picked a few late blooming flowers, a few pretty leaves and some cedar....i decided to use them (their colors) as an inspiration for a new piece of art.... it was fun and helped me see things in a new light. i truly hope to do this at least once a week....
here's a few pictures....
yesterday, i opened my new website and i made my first sell!!!! yippee...i am more than happy that this time it went smoothly. the true test will be when two buyers try to buy a piece at the same time. but i have my fingers crossed that it will work. if you're reading this because you're my customer/collector/friend...i want to thank you again for your continued support of me, my family and my art ...XOXOXO karen
well as you can see by now...i really stink at adding products to my new website. i am trying to get a few new pieces of art made and listed. while i am thrilled that i have the problem of selling too fast...my store looks terrible!!!!! also this week i will be adding a few vintage pieces to the site. keep watching XOXOXO, karen
