A Few New Samples In!

I have to apologize for posting so rarely these days. It’s in my mind to post everyday, but I just never find the time or the topics to accomplish it. The business takes up the time and it also seems to make my mind turn to mush when it comes to knowing what to write about. Sigh…

But today I do have some pictures to share. My whole idea of having models has mostly been falling through. One of those is a VERY busy person. And then another that has been kind of slow has pet issues right now and health issues with a pet you have had for over a decade are so hard to take. So I am being patient with both. But one of my models didn’t fall through, mostly because I was the one taking the picture and I was at her place anyway so she couldn’t get out of it!

Cece very happy with her “Twisted” mug.

Then my two mask samples, those models fell through for health reasons. So I have the masks, but I think I am glad about that one. If I get all the masks I can be advertising with them and any compliments I get gets a business card!

The masks are actually quite comfortable once you get used to the bands around your ears. The mask I had been using wraps around my head and is quite hot, these aren’t. And these definitely stay over the nose and mouth. It only took one wearing to get used to the bands for me. And they are washable. Though according to my dad’s cancer doctor spraying it with alcohol (assuming you can even find that!) is a good between wash measure. Just make sure your alcohol is over 60%. Who knew alcohol wasn’t all alcohol!

So that is all for me today. And here’s hoping sometime soon I can get back on task and post daily, or almost daily!

So What Is to Come??

I wish I could say business is booming, but it is slow going. I have had one sale since I opened, my aunt bought a dragonfly canvas. I don’t have any idea where she is going to put it. My uncle had commented not long ago that they were going to be wall to wall pictures, but it was wonderful that she thought of me and ordered something.

What You Will Find

So what are some of the things that are up already? To start let me tell you what the products are. Tee-shirts in different styles are a biggie. I also have sweatshirts and hoodies. Beyond what you can wear there are coffee mugs, face masks, phone covers, tote bags (one of my favorite items so far), kids clothes, doggie clothes (in tons of sizes), pillows, posters, canvases, stickers (I am trying to do die cut stickers but that is a learning experience and very tedious, so have patience. Also if you see something that says die cut but shows a rectangle, don’t buy it. Go for the less expensive regular sticker.) So anyway, lots of stuff! And it all comes in a variety of colors. What is available as far as colors varies from piece to piece because one tee might have 20 options and another might have 1. I try to look for complementary colors as well. So if you love purple and it doesn’t go with the artwork, then I am sorry. Though I will say if you really want something in purple and it is available to me, you can message me and I will put it up for you. But I don’t promise it will be appealing to the eye.

Now for the designs. Not all designs have all items. It really, again, depended on what it looked like and how it fit the item. Like I think I have one design that is on the all over sweatshirt. Most just didn’t look right. But here are the different designs that are available:

So lots to choose from and more coming all the time!

What Is Next?

I have a few pieces that I am planning on doing next, here they are:

The tiger’s eye, while really great, is going to be dependent on if I can get rid of the background. It is too small as it is, so it needs to be cut down. I also *might* have a rooster coming. Oh and another that is already up is a breast cancer awareness ribbon, but I don’t think I did anything except the mug because I was having a hard time loading it. I will go back and try to more of that up.

The last two I mentioned were requests, the ribbon and the rooster. I will take requests with the understanding that some things I do well, some things I am still trying to build skill for and it might just not turn out good enough to put it up there. But you can always ask. Also if you have any ideas that you think might sell well, hey! hit me up. Ideas are good. Though I will mention I do not celebrate holidays, so please don’t ask about me doing something that is holiday oriented. Unless, you are interested in finding out why I don’t celebrate holidays and then again, put a comment up and I will be glad to explain my reasonings.

Well that about wraps it up. Let me know what you think, and please check out my store, also the company I am using ships worldwide! So all my Indian, Norwegian, British, African, Chinese, Thai friends and others, check it out!
