I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without posting. But I have been busy and working more hours at work. The heat of the day and work has taken its toll. I do have an update on my progress and I do have to say that it is taking longer than I had anticipated but much of that is due to my perfectionist attitude. I know I’m spending too much time trying to get things right so I am pushing myself to get this done so that I can work on more artwork for more products.
I did do some editing of current artwork and spent a lot of time on that. I have some items on hand already but I am holding off on showing them until the site is ready but I would like to show some photos of my grandchildren modeling t-shirts because the pics I had to take before getting one that I could use was too good not to show.
So here is what I went through to get a good shot.
I had fun taking these and there is more to come.
I had mentioned recently that I am in the process of making changes and moving forward in a direction that I feel will work for me. I find it necessary to limit my blog posts to allow more time for what I need to concentrate on. During this time, I’m asking that you please don’t leave and think that I have abandoned my blog. I do appreciate the likes and comments that shows your interest in what I have to say or design.
The steps ahead will have twists and turns, pulling me here and there.
There may be moments when the unknown will strike an element of fear.
But it will all lead me to where I would like to be.
Then I can breathe a sigh of relief.
I’m sure I will have a post here and there and some updates on my progress without giving away too much info. I will also keep an eye on what all of you are up to. With that said…I gotta go…lots of work ahead.
It makes me happy when a finished clock gets good reviews. I was recently asked by a co-worker to design a clock for his uncle who is a Minnesota Vikings fan. Unable to use any official NFL logos I put together something I thought would ‘make the grade’. I have to admit I was a little nervous wondering if Ken (co-worker) would like what I came up with.
After the initial design, I sent it to him in a message and to my surprise and pleasure he was happy with it. All he wanted was a shift in word placement which meant I would have to move some of the artwork also. I was curious if the finished clock would be greeted with the same enthusiasm as I got from Ken so I took it to work the day before Ken was to get it. Everyone who saw it was really pleased with it. Some even asked if I put it all together myself.
I may have a couple of new orders because they liked it that much. This my first 8.5 x 11 landscape design clock.
I’m really looking forward to my next project, but in the meantime I’ll be #workinon getting my Etsy Store up and running.
Since the giveaway started and ended, that space has given me time to start new projects and think ahead.
I’m probably going to open my ebay store and maybe an Etsy. I would like to offer some items from here but on the budget I’m working with, that type of an upgrade is not in the plans just yet, but I have some ideas on that end.
I’m thinking about bringing my blog over here to wordpress…..seriously thinking about it.
I have these three frames that I have almost ready for whatever I decide to put in them.
Not counting these three frames, I’m about to start a custom clock for someone.
Oh yeah, I have another frame I’m working on but I can’t show that one yet.
I sold two more clocks…I can only show one because the other is a gift and it hasn’t been given yet.
I have a pic of the clock but will have to get one with the buyer later on.
I changed the facial molding on this clock
Well, that’s where I am right now….
I haven’t forgotten about the giveaway I mentioned in an earlier post, but I am getting a later start than originally planned. I have the pieces cut and painted…now I’m designing the 5 x 7 face cover.
Should be ready to go here in a day or two. Details will be available then.
Thank you for your patience.
