I know, I know, I know…It’s supposed to be Happy Monday but I had date-specific sponsored posts that took over Monday so we will do this on a Tuesday. Cool? Cool. I know we wrapped up Halloween half an hour ago but I am currently carrying ten pounds of Christmas in an eight pound bag, so this baby is ready to bust. Starting November 8 I am sharing a new holiday DIY for a whole week. More to come!
Also. A little news here: I am opening an online pop-up shop.
Months ago, you guys told me that I should consider selling my paintings and I was so encouraged that I put it on my Must-Do list or 2015, then must do turned into To-Do, and then I pushed it back and back and back…and well. Life happens. And I watched a lot of Netflix. And the end of 2015 is irritatingly close. Man! So here is the deal: This is going to be short and sweet. A couple dozen items available for two weeks or until they sell out. Prices start at $30 and will go up to a few hundred, depending on time invested (a couple of these are real honkers). Mostly paintings. Some abstracts. Some florals. Some paper, some canvas. All originals. I will make the link public NEXT MONDAY NOVEMBER 9, but I will send it out a little early to folks on my weekly mailing list (that signup box in the sidebar). You can see a bunch of the florals I made this summer over on Instagram (#flowersfor30days) but there will be other stuff too. So if you are interested…stay tuned. No dibs allowed, not even for friends or family, SO I HOPE YOU WILL BE READY TO POUNCE!
