It has been a long time since I made a real blog post.
Things are busy! Super busy! Which is good. Busy is always good. It is better then being bored!
Sales in my etsy shop have been keeping me busy. Things are picking up which is really good! But despite sales slowing increasing I started an ArtFire store. I figured it couldn't hurt to have two shops. It is a smaller version of my etsy store. No sales yet in my ArtFire store but I have hope since I bought advertising space on their handmade page. So hopefully that will start the sales coming in!
In August I am having an art show at the Source Within in Bisbee, so I have been super crazy busy making paintings for that. I discovered water soluble crayons which seem to be my choice of medium right now. I sit for hours everyday (while watching Medium on Netflix Instant Watch) and just paint and paint and paint the day away. With each new painting I try something different and I think my style is starting to emerge.
I have scanned in my favorite paintings, and I am considering selling prints, postcards, and maybe a few other surprises in my etsy shop as well as my jewelry. I don't want to open another etsy shop since I tried that once and didn't like having to manage two of them.
In other news, I have been super crazy busy practicing for the pride show in two weeks. I will be performing Mein Herr, Cabaret, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I find it really funny that I will be performing as Judy Garland and her daughter Liza! I am doing the Mein Herr chair dance from the movie, and I have discovered that it is really hard to sing and dance at the same time. Even if it is just on a chair! I couldn't find my Sally Bowles costume, so I have been piecing a new one together, which is also occupying a lot of my time.
Not to mention the ghost tour and our Paranormal & Ghost Hunting Weekend which I have been busy planning.
This past Sunday I had a kidney stone attack. Not fun. Had to go to the ER in Sierra Vista. I was pretty much useless for the entire week afterwords since they put me on such heavy pain meds. Yesterday I got an ultrasound of my kidneys and will get the results from my doctor next week.
Wow I am exhausted from just typing up this blog post!
I promise to add a few new jewelry pieces to my etsy shop in the next week or so. They are slowly being made.
