Agh...Blogger Is Making Me Crazy !

Or maybe just a little crazier than usual. :) I am so appreciative of the kind comments left on my blog this week and I am reading them but have not been able to leave a comment anywhere this week except with Terry for some reason. On top of that some of the wonderful comments that you all were so kind to leave me just disappeared when I ok'ed them. Is it time to move to Typepad or somewhere else???? Would hate to leave my years of blog here behind but.... Maybe they will get this fixed for good soon. :( Nan

My First Sale On Etsy! Woo Hoo! And A Question

Wow, very excited to have my first sale on Etsy. I sold my little bird from the previous post. Bye bye birdie...I'll miss you. :) Thank you Debbie in Tennessee for being my first Etsy customer! I have just started putting things in the shop one at a time and will have to get busy so it doesn't look bare! I have to say that I think Etsy is going to be much better for me than eBay. I like the "circles" of friends and how we can promote each others shops. My friend Lynn even put my art on her Facebook page. Thank you Lynn!!!! I definitely have to learn how to utilize Facebook better because it obviously will be a great tool.

Question for all you wonderful artistic blogging friends out there...Do you think it's distracting to sell both supplies and finshed art in the same Etsy shop? Does it feel distracting or tacky to you? Or convenient? Just something I've been pondering as I'm putting together many destash kits!

I hope you all are having a great Memorial Day weekend! I will be creating and yes, still sorting through stuff. Forever and ever and ever........ I think! Sigh! :) Nan shop name is The Curious Little Door will have more stuff soon...promise!

Three Muses Blue

When I saw the Three Muses were celebrating 2 years I had to make something blue just for that. I haven't done many challenges recently but Three Muses is one of my favorites and I appreciate all the inspiration they've given me! Thanks Bev, Ann and Marie!

A New Venture.......

Yay! Waving! Blogger is back up and running! Nothing like a few days of being denied access to your blog to make you appreciate it! Blogger has been down for a few days. This just happened to be at the same time I've really been feeling the need to get back to my blog. I've been making things and setting up my etsy shop. I'm very very good :) at buying things on etsy but this will be new to be the one selling something there. It has a whole different feel than eBay and I think it's going to be fun.

I just made this little creation for my special friend Lynn. She is one of the most generous and caring people I've ever known plus we a lot have fun together. She recently gave me a whole day to take me to the big little city to get an an MRI because I am a big fat scaredy cat drama queen when it comes to being in that machine! We did mange however to go have a lot of fun in the big little city afterwards. She just opened her shop, Ladybug's Cottage and I wanted to make her something special to celebrate. She has a knack for finding great little items to use for mixed media.

I have been making a series of these little pieces to put in my new shop. I have been working on the banner and the graphics and hope to actually have stuff in there this weekend. I'll post my "grand" opening soon. :) Nan
