About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

My brain has been working overtime trying to figure out a way to make art for a living.  I have an Etsy store and I need to stock it--I know that my art won't sell in storage.  I have also heard that Cafe Press is a good site for artists to sell their work.  I need to take an inventory, make note of what I have and write a detailed description.  I am not known for patience--in fact, I have very little of it.  I guess that I procrastinate too much when it comes to the marketing part of my art. I hate that part--I want to do the creating, not the marketing and I know that to sell my work, it all goes hand-in-hand.  So, guess what I am saying is that I have to quit waiting around and jump into it.  These sites are up and going and I need to take advantage of them.  So, my goal this weekend is to get into the dreaded back-room and begin posting on the sites that are available to me. My plans sometime in the future includes having my own site but for now I need to have somewhere that I can direct prospective customers too. Will chat again soon.

  2. Thanks for the kind words--you're right, I just have to decided to "take the plunge", sometimes that is easier said than done. The hardest thing is finding the time--you know, when I have time I want to spend it creating something.
