Reminder - Can't keep up is a good thing!!!!

Hi all!

I'm exhausted!!! I have been keeping late nights and taking care of Lo who is still in her cast :( . I just can't keep up with life and my art life together!! I have been selling art like hotcakes which is WONDERFUL! The pieces I have been selling have been big and small alike. I still have my art in 3 places locally and if one sells I have to replace it with a similar sized piece. Well I just sold my very large piece that I didn't even have a chance to blog about yet called "The Earth Laughs In Flowers". It is 24 x 36 and very vibrant. It's light and airy and a different style for me. That same night I sold it I created a new piece called "Whimsical Garden" (same size) in a similar style. The big piece was a focal piece at a local restaurant so I didn't want there to be a bare wall. While there switching out things I met a lady who was looking at my art and may purchase a piece for her sister. The same thing happened before when I was hanging "The Earth Laughs in Flowers" 2 girls were looking at my art while I was hanging it and have since gone around town looking at it! I was busy getting things ready for the "All About Birds" show at the library which will be up for a month as well. I've been scanning prints like crazy and even started a new series called "From the Book" (all originals listed on ArtFire). Busy, busy, busy!!! PHEW!! Tired yet? I am!

This is great! I feel like I'm finally on a roll and all the late nights and constant marketing online is paying off. Thank you to all who have passed on my links or have purchased my art. Because of the sales I have been able to pay off 2 credit cards!! What a good feeling that is!!! Still a ways to go but it's a dent! I need to be debt free!!! THANK YOU!

I just found out last week that I am going to be in an upcoming artisan spotlight on ArtFire in a few weeks!! So I'm busy stocking up my ArtFire shop. If you see a new piece you like it will most likely be listed there. I am trying to generate more sales in that shop now. They have soooo many great features that are very helpful when listing items.

I also wanted to give you a heads up that I will be hosting a giveaway again once I hit post number 200 which is very soon!!! Be on the lookout for that. It may or may not be an original just for you as a thank you.

Well this was long! Here's the photos you've been reading for! LOL
