Business Stuff

For everyone out there who has there own business you know the importance of business cards and marketing material. Vista Print is a great place to find that stuff. They actually offer free business cards!! You simply choose from there design templates, fill in your business info, pay for shipping, ($5.00 for the cheapest) and you're good to go! You'll receive a bunch of offers and promos regularly via email for certain products. I know those emails are annoying but I take advantage of them when they have there 'free' sales. They have cool designs and its really easy to create and navigate through the site. So check it out!! And while you're at it check my site out too!!

GREEN Earrings

My latest creation! Yeah I know the design is not new, but the plastic is from a recycled bottle! These are kind of like my "welcome Spring" earrings. Whenever a plastic bottle is emptied I take a close look at it and see what I can create। I knew right away when this green (shampoo!) bottle was emptied I would have lots of ideas. I plan on making a few variations of this. Let me know what you think.......

What a cozy evening to create a blog! I'm a full time artist and I'm trying to learn as much as I can on creating a successful business. So I'm very open to any thought on that matter....
Any artist can relate that some days everything works and others (sometimes too many) nothing gets accomplished and nothing works. I just finished a portrait for a customer yesterday, and she was very happy with the finished product. Obviously yesterday was a great day! Today I made a couple pairs of earrings. One pair from plexy glass, and another from recycled materials. I'm pretty satisfied with them! I'm still figuring out what works and what doesn't with the recycled materials I use. I will be posting pictures of them soon!! My stomach's growling, so I guess I'll leave it at that!!
