Month: February 2012

Experimenting with style and medium

In recent weeks I haven’t been concentrating on any particular style of art or medium. In fact, I’ve been all over the place trying to find out what I like doing best. Many different things have inspired me this month, and as a result I did these few arty pieces. What do you think?

My shop on Etsy

This year is turning out to be pretty amazing. I am slowly learning that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. At the start of the year I decided to try and set up shop on a cute site called Etsy. I thought that if I’m going to continue my love for arts and crafts then it would be nice for otheres to enjoy them, too. I sold my first item a few days ago, and eventhough this is (hopefully) just the start, I am enjoying the journey of it all. I am loving the organisation, and the picture-taking, and being a ‘seller’ in itself.
Please feel free to check out my shop, you might even find something that takes your fancy 🙂
