How this ... has now become THIS!

Hello dear friends. How time passes quickly at this time of year. I have so many projects going and it seems as though we just celebrated Labor Day and I kept wishing for cooler days so I could work comfortably in my studio.

Be careful what you wish for.

Within the past ten days I opened another Etsy Shop ~ selling exclusive, handmade and designer greeting cards. The response has been wonderful and I've been humbled by the comments, purchases and support from people who have guided me through the online selling process.

For those of you who haven't heard of Etsy and/or shopped on Etsy ~ it is a worldwide shop for people to either create and/or sell their items. You can visit the shops and purchase handmade and/or vintage (antiques and collectibles) items ~ all in the convenience of your own home.

This is a designer greeting card that I created and was sold within a few hours of my posting it on Etsy. became that!

Isn't HE beautiful? She purchased the card and then matted and framed him and he is now part of their "Christmas Room" in their old colonial home.

Not only was I delighted to sell one of my greeting cards ~ how happy I am that it is now part of another family's Christmas.

If you would like to see what Etsy is like, you can visit my shops by going to:
