Hey there Friday friends! How was the week? This full moon energy has been waking me up like clock work at 3 am all week. That, and trying to adjust to the new routine of school and fall sports and my new work routine, has got me a little tuckered, but I'm pretty pumped on life so it's all good.
This week I carried on with my #100dayproject. (descrip and photos)
I sorted out older stock and I'm cooking up a wicked package deal of all-time fave December Studio items for an amazing price. Newsletter subscribers get the first deets on that so watch your inboxes!
I also did a million product photo shoots to load into my webshop and my ETSY shop. I did a selfie photo shoot to make a profile pic for Etsy (see above). I got new prints out the door and into the lovely arms of Lisa at FENTIMAN AVE Go see Lisa and check out her amazing store! I also received some cool mini paper prints and posters of my new work in the mail. Posters are going to be first seen by the email list folks AND I drafted a little giveaway promo as a thanks to those who have signed up and as an incentive (not gonna lie) for more people to give my newsletter a go and jump on my email list.
Phew! Mouth. FULL.
I am still loving the Squarespace platform. I have used Blogger and Typepad in the past and I think all three platforms have their strengths and weaknesses but this platform has got what I am looking for in terms of online presence, ease of use, pretty on the eyes, good pricing, etc. Speaking of Typepad and Blogger: I no longer update those spaces. If you end up there somehow, please come back to this page @ decemberstudioart.com and please tell your friends.
Speaking of which, can you all help your home-girl out and tell your friends about my work! Send them to my Facebook. Send them to my Insta. Send them to my blog. I need your help to make this journey work. I know you know someone who will like this art! It's hip, it's cool, it's funny and it's inspiring. I sometimes think my art is a little weird too, haha, but I like it that way.
WE'RE ALL A LITTLE WEIRD HERE, AREN'T WE?
I'm heading out to see some soul sisters for tea today and I'm just so darn excited about that. I need a grounding from that kind of connection--and I deserve the break. If anything, I need the break from thinking about this work so that I can come back refreshed and re-jazzed about it. Yesterday I met with my business soul sisters and it was so good for my heart. I'm realizing that being isolated all day doing my own thing with only my thoughts and my podcasts to keep me company can get a little intense! Getting out and talking to people can be a great thing. My inner introvert would like to debate that notion, but I'm telling you-sometimes people-ing is good!
I'm enjoying getting back into blogging and I haven't sorted out a firm schedule for post frequency yet, but I have sorted out future topics. The next few are going to focus on the supplies that I use in my art practice and the processes of my art practice. Hopefully I will get organized enough to write out a few little tutorial type posts as well, although I am not sure how well those would turn out since I'm a great big fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of artist at times, but I do have some solid methods and tricks up my smock.
Anyway, have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for reading:)
