In The Studio

I've been in and out this month having very productive times and not so productive times. That is what recouping is about for me. Energy comes in waves, stays only a short while, and heads on out again so I can rest a little before the next wave.

I'm excited to share the news that I'm working on selling my mosaics directly through this blog. Each day I add a few to it's own dedicated page and once I am happy with how it looks, I'll share and promote/market and post often about what's new on them. I've started with new pendants I've been working on. Some are shown below.

I realized at the end of last year that I've been searching for new venues to share my work and I've missed a great opportunity to set up shop right here on my blog. When I write daily during the week, I share my blog with all my favorite social media sites. The chances are just as great to make a sale this way because someone sees the shop tabs as it is when I share new listings on Etsy.

I made my first sale in my 2nd shop yesterday. I am so excited about it!! My first customer ordered two mugs which go to a lab for printing very soon. I opened the 2nd shop in November 2013 and am so glad it didn't take a year, like the 1st shop, to make a sale!

When I've worked, I've been painting, putting mosaics on switch plate covers and pendants too. Small projects are okay to do; the muse is happy, I don't get overly exhausted and I'm creating which is the most important thing for me to do when I'm tired and/or in pain.

Here's the paintings, done on 2.5 x 3.5 inch MDF in acrylics. You can purchase them directly from me if you are interested. They aren't listed anywhere yet but are available. Each one is $25 a piece. If you're interested, want more info or have questions, shoot me an email at any time! I always respond within the first 24 hours of receiving email. If you don't hear from me within 2 days, let me know through here or on Facebook. You can also send me an email at which is dedicated to the 2nd shop.

  1. I am loving the new pendants, Cindy!
    Congrats on the sale from your second shop. That's awesome. I'll have to go peek and see what you offer and favorite a few things.
    Congrats on starting to sell your items from the blog too. I've been thinking about doing that but haven't done anything with my thoughts yet. LOL

  2. Thank you, Kim! Selling on the blog seemed like a good idea, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner! It is awesome that blogger allows html - makes it really easy!

  3. Love the switch plate covers! Such a nice detail to each room!

  4. Thank you. They are fun to mosaic too. :)

  5. Your work is so fun and beautiful. I love the light switch with the heart. Awesome!!!!!

  6. Thank you, Debbie! Thanks too for inviting me to your team on Etsy. I love making new friends and sharing the love!
