WOYWW - I've Lost Count

Hello dear WOYWWers, yes, it's me, obviously not a regular anymore. I haven't been here for the last few weeks (two? three? even more?). The reason is simple - I've set up and opened my Etsy shop and that obviously took all my energy. It's a quite fascinating adventure, pretty much work is involved, but I expected that and really like it. However, I did not expect to sell anything in the first few months, and I already sold a mixed media painting and one of the small journals! That came as a surprise - I am very happy about and deeply thankful for it.

But you're not here to hear me ramble but to see what's on my worktable - it's this:


I'm working on another girl, a little Halloween witch this time. She will get green hair and a typical witch's hat. Somehow I want to include a cat and perhaps an owl - or a crow. I'm thinking of working more on the background and to make it a little more "halloweenish".

Do you want to see what's on other worktables? Just visit Julia's Stamping Ground and find the "guide".

The paper under your work always looks like a work of art too! Good luck with your etsy shop.
Glad to have you back I was looking for your contact details to see if you were OK but you've beaten me to it.
I've just been to Germany and had a wonderful visit. Check out last week's blog. The little'un is doing so well.

I like the way this is looking so far.

Is there a link or a button on your sidebar to your Etsy shop? Maybe I'm missing something. I'd love to visit tho.

Well done on the Etsy store and also on the sales too. Love the purple background but I think it could be more Halloweeny! Inkadinkado have some great (and cheap) Halloween stamps along the themes that you're thinking of.

Great news about the shop..but don't let it dictate and make your art less fun to make will ya?!! I like the hallowe'en colours going on there.

good luck with the Etsy shop! Sorry I am so late getting by but wanted to pop by to visit your blog this week and say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse
