I am an Etsy Seller!

I made my first sale in my Etsy Shop on Wednesday! I am so excited about it. I think we might have over done the packaging, but I am positive that the painting will get there in excellent condition. It feels really good to have sold something. I did not really have an idea when someone would buy anything from me so it was a really nice surprise. Now I am hooked. I am trying to figure out ways to get more people to my little spot. I have found the Etsy showcase and tried the collage showcase. I am trying it again tomorrow. It can't hurt. The best way I think is to keep posting new work. Tomorrow I planned on going to the Alberta Art Hop, but think I have to spend a large chunk of time in the studio instead. It's going to be beautiful tomorrow (as it is today) in Portland so I am a bit sad that I won't be out walking around checking out the awesome art. Hopefully I will be creating some of my own.

Let's see, other things going on are that I am going to have an awesome dinner with my family and some wonderful friends like her and her. And some other awesome folks. I have just finished making some chocoate cupcakes and some coconut ones. Now it's on to the frosting. Yum.
