Chatrooms on Etsy

I just found out that Etsy has a chatroom. Just go to about any page and on the top menu bar it says FORUMS. Click on that and on that page, in the upper right hand corner it has the chatroom button. I've met some other Etsy artists there and it feels good to cheer each other on and share tips.

The Doll With the Red Button Eyes

I'm putting both these paintings up for sale on ETSY today before I get too attached to them and decide to keep them forever.

sundancer beaded spirit art doll

The photography really doesn't do it justice. I'm about halfway done with the beadwork, then I'll sew the edges closed, add a bit of stuffing and then add the fringe.

Sundancer doll

Right now I'm working on a beaded leather spirit doll called Sundancer. The face is a little sun made of carved bone that I purchased at a Gem and Mineral show. Photos coming soon. More details here:

What's it all about?

I've noticed as I list things on Etsy, I also want to talk about the projects more than the room on Etsy allows. So I thought I'd make a blog so I could be more available to the public and my fans and my customers. So far I haven't sold anything on Etsy but hope springs eternal. I've already added some artists to my favorites list and I see that some people have added me as well. I like having the moral support.
