Another Rainy Day


It has been so rainy lately around here, I think it is really having an effect on people's moods. If I wanted to put a positive spin on it, I would sew all day wearing my pajamas, with a crockpot of lovely stew or chili cooking and a fire in the fireplace, sipping some fabulous tea. Unfortunately, I got showered and dressed early to take my son to a football practice that ended up being cancelled, I don't have the ingredients necessary for any of my crockpot comfort food recipes, and we have no fireplace! I will try to carve out some sewing time and go forage in the pantry for some fabulous tea, so maybe 2 out of five isn't bad?

Also on the schedule: clean up my dining room/crafting area, clean the kitchen, pay some bills. I should add: hug my family, adjust my attitude, and seize the day!

What a beautiful photo, Maggie. You really have a great eye for abstract design.

Thanks! I did not take the photo, I bought it from a stock photo place.

I love that rain photo. :) Even if you didn't take it, it was a great one to pick!

Hey there!

I'm kinda dropping by randomly (& kinda dropping by to hit you with my EC) to tell you about this new selling site I found. It's called ArtFire.com & you should check it out.

It's still really, really new (still in beta) but it's heading in a really good direction! They are already buying advertising online & in print magazines to bring in traffic to the site. (It's already got almost as much traffic as indiepublic.com)

It's got stats for shop views so you know where your customers are coming from! I know! Gasp! Faint! Right? hehe

& it's just $7 a month (for the first 5000 artists) to list & sell as much as you can FOREVER. $7 a month no matter what! I signed up on that alone! haha

Anyhoo, it is new so there aren't zillions of people using it (which is good & bad) but I thought you might want to take a look at it. With the ad campaign they are working on kicking in soon (or so they are saying), I think it's going to be a good place to start listing!

If you sign up, give me a yell & let me know what you think!

Always,
Amy

P.S. Rainy days are good if I am in a good mood & bad if I'm already feeling low. :)
