I am one who likes change when I am in charge of the changes. Other wise don't mess with my routine. It you have an Etsy store, you know that over the last few years they have had several CEOs that have made changes NOT conducive to the hand crafted artist or supply seller. That is how Etsy started and made their money, however, that was all changed several years ago allowing big business to come in and sell. Ya know corporate greed. Then, other small changes and this year huge changes. Especially changing the algorithm of how people can find you on Etsy. It leans all towards the big sellers. Of course then they put in Etsy Studio, another harmful addition for sellers. Personally my sales on any given day have dropped 85 to 100%, and it is SO VERY NICE of Etsy to show me those facts right on my dashboard. A few months ago I reopened my Beadwright website and the other day closed my Beadwright Etsy store. I actually put it on vacation mode with a note directing people to my website. Ya know, if anyone is even going there. LOL Sooooo I said all of that to say that working my website again has taken all of my time and I didn't have much art this week. I have these hand painted cabs and this silly box that I have fallen in love with and have filled with personal goodies.
These smaller 25x25mm cabs are a bit more difficult to paint than the larger ovals.
Now for silly, just to show people they can make ANYTHINGfor my Sparkle Cab contest.
A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday and to all the artists who share each week. Looking forward to seeing what you created.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
