Promo Blast!

Yes, it's Monday again the day in which is normally set aside for my promo blasts. Today I'm doing a blast for this entire post to introduce a way to shop directly through my blog!

See the tabs above? Not all of them have been added yet, but each tab holds my mosaics and art with descriptions and pricing. Just buy clicking on the "Buy Now" button, you'll go directly to PayPal.

I am positive what you see there now will be changed a bit for the moment, it's set to go!

Although I'm needing rest and don't want to do the full blown promotional, networking, marketing thing, I know I must. My work and my shops truly are one of those "out of sight, out of mind" kinds of shops and that means I have to work harder to make sure they are not forgotten.

To explain why I'm selling here on my blog: I have wanted to do it for a while now, but finding motivation wasn't easy. It came quickly when an outstanding bill on Etsy (almost 21 days old) arrived. Now the shop will be suspended tomorrow.

As many of you know, I pay my online bills with art sales, almost all of them through Etsy. The normal way of life used to be that I'd continue to add or renew items each day and by the time the bill was due, I'd make a sale to pay it. But that didn't happen this time.

This year has started off a bit rocky, eh? My physical difficulties get better as the weather warms slightly now and then, thankfully, and I've been able to make up some pages here on the blog over the past few days.

I'm a tough old bird which means I can still sell my work in other ways to try to get the bill taken care of on Etsy. That means selling on free sites until I do. Hopefully it won't take too long to make a sale but if it does, I may lose my domain name. My moniker has been EarthMotherMosaics for so long, I'm not sure what I'd pick to start over with, but that's not something I have to worry about today. Thank goodness!

I DO have a Zibbet shop and am updating it. The love is there for this site and although I don't give the 2 shops on Zibbet as much attention as I should, this will give me time to do just that.

Because I've had a few panic-sleepless-nights-oh-no-what-will-I-do moments, I'm also sharing my photo art here as well. I might actually, once the bills are paid, close my Etsy shops completely. Time will tell. It might be time to realize it's time for some changes.

So, without any further adieu, please go to the tabs above to look at some items, try out the new "buy now" buttons for me and let me know how it goes!

Would you like to see more than one photo for some items? Feedback is welcome!
