My new etsy shop!

I love making art. I love crafting. It's in my blood and I've been doing it for years. And even though I'm not a shy person, I'm sort of timid when it comes to putting myself out there with these things. I know what I like, but I always think it's not going to be what other people like. I'm not a traditional art kind of girl. While I can appreciate a still life and the landscapes, I'm just more into bold colors, all things funky, crazy and whimsical.

While I've been on "hiatus" from the corporate world (which, by the way, doesn't look like it's going to be ending any time soon, and that's freaking me out), I've been able to spend more time in my craft room. And I've been enjoying it quite a bit!

So after much encouragement from my hubs, I'm putting myself out there. Maybe it will be good, maybe not, but at least it's giving me a reason to continue to do something I enjoy, which I'd put off for a very long time. :)

Take a peak if you have time!

Congrats on the opening of your "shop"! I've wanted to open an Etsy shop for a long time, but I haven't been able to pinpoint a medium and get to work. Yours looks great so far and I wish you the best of luck with it!

I know it can be hard to put yourself out there, as you said, but it is usually rewarding! Regardless of the outcome, it is awesome that you are doing something you love. Kudos to your hubby, as well! I love your shop ... your pieces are very creative. Good luck!

I'm so proud of you! I'm like you, sometimes I'm so afraid of putting myself out there. When you first showed us (months ago) one of these paintings, I thought to myself then that I would love to see you open your etsy shop. Best of luck!
