Etsy for the Holidays

Google Analytics. Very cool. Especially when I see any increase in hits to my shop! :)
Excited about my little ornaments I made. I stuffed paper flowers into the glass ornament and spread them out with a long paint brush and then added glitter and fake snow. The ribbons are all sewn to make one big loop. They make me smile. I have lots-o-colors....two of them on my Etsy shop...

Art shows were a good time!

It's always so nice to be on the Peace College campus...brings back happy memories. The Durham Artwalk went well, too. I got a lot of contacts of people interested in pet portraits. And that, my friends, is what will keep me pretty busy on the weekends and weeknights until next year. My thoughts are that I will try and sell as much of my inventory as I can before the new year and then try and focus on my pet portraits. So this may mean a massive flea market sale a couple of weeks perhaps. I will keep you posted!

Donation to the ASPCA, thanks to you

Thanks to the past five orders of custom pet portraits, I was able to donate $25 to the ASPCA. Thank you so much and please tell your friends and family about Amy's Creative Corner. :)
