Hello, updates, and an announcement

Just popping in real quick to say hi, give a few updates, and  to make a formal announcement (a bit late) about my artwork that is making it's debut at the Itty Bitty Boutique in Downtown Campbell!  I'm super excited about this new venture, and I really hope I do well. 

Right now I only took two shelves to start with. If things go well (hope hope hope!), I'll of course add more space and inventory.  :) 

In the meantime, I'm working hard on the business side of things.  My new website is up and running, and I might add, very proudly totally updated! 

I'm working everyday on the Etsy store and have been devouring many tutorials on how to make your shop more noticeable etc.  It's a slow process I think, and definitely a huge learning curve, but I won't give up.  There are times though, when I really think what is the use? But I'm guessing everyone has low moments like that when they are trying to start a new business.  Please tell me I'm right!  

Not much art is actually happening this week, simply because I've been so busy.  I haven't been home much either, so that doesn't help.  But I am working on new stuff, mainly a giraffe, a whale (still!), a hippo and a snail.  I suspect the snail will be done first, probably because he's smallest.  :)

That's all for now!  Hope everyone is doing well, and has a great weekend!!

Congratulations Michelle, on all your new ventures!! I know what you mean when you say 'What's the use'; I have regular bouts of this too!! I have to say, though, I have had a breakthrough of sorts this summer. Commercial success and personal success are 2 different things, and I've decided personal success feels better to me. So let the chips fall where they may ;)
Have an awesome Sunday dear one!

Oh yes, I have big bouts of 'what's the use' and 'which way should i turn' and 'how do i make it all happen, and faster'. It's a constant process of letting go for me and trusting that things are unfolding as they should be.
