Thanks again for your beautiful work!
I joined another Etsy Street Team - well, I joined it months ago but then didn't do anything with it. I just recently got more actively involved in it, which led me to sign up for a show & sale. I'm a little nervous, I haven't done a show since Rexy was a baby!
Anyway, so now I'm trying to build up my paltry inventory like mad! I went through my jewelry inventory and decided I didn't like half of it. I've set it aside to either take apart to use the components or to put on a "clearance" table at the sale. I've sketched out 3 or 4 canvasses and just have to start putting paintbrush to paint. I redesigned my business card and I'm trying to decide between two versions. I still have to print and cut a supply of them. I'm still redesigning my jewelry cards and price tags - which I will then have to print and cut out, too. I can do my jewelry display setup in my sleep (I used to do this a lot) - I'm still pretty happy with its design - but I have never had to display canvasses and shrines before and I'm racking my brain trying to come up with an attractive idea that I can haul around by myself.
I'm a member of a ning.com group called Marmalade Pink. It's a fantastic, supportive group and I thought I'd share some member's products with you:
I was so thrilled to hear from Dana, formerly of Eccentricities Studio, the other day. I had been wondering where she went. It turns out she was regrouping and opening up a new store! And wow! It's a beauty! I can't wait to try one of everything. She's also destashing and selling some of her primitive products and supplies in a different store.

So yesterday I left my sweet, pretty, angelic 4yo alone in the bathroom - we're practicing going alone. She was drawing a "story" in her drawing pad with a purple marker. (She's particularly fond of drawing stories about "Rexy going to school" which is breaking my heart right now because we just had the last day of school and the reality of what that means hasn't sunk in with her yet. She just keeps thinking she will see her best friends, Imad and CeeCee, tomorrow.) When I went back in she was leaning over with her face in her lap.
"Are you okay, honey?"
She looked up at me with a beautific grin - and a plum sized circle of purple over her right eye...and more purple on her neck...and her chest...and the fronts and backs of both hands...and completely covering her legs from knee to hip! GROAN...........and you know what? Washable markers stop being washable when they're applied ten layers deep. So the marks have faded to a nice fuschia-violet color - but they're still there. Oh, man...
