Oh my gosh...'s three o'clock in the afternoon and I'm still in my pajamas. I got so busy I forgot that I hadn't actually gotten dressed yet...I'm surprised one of the grandbabies hasn't noticed.

I've been doing as much self promoting as I can...with my limited understanding of how everything works in the vast expanse of the universe of the world wide web.

I'm having to learn everything myself...on my own...without really knowing what I'm doing.

All of the 'how-tos' seemed aimed at building wealth..etc...

I'm trying to make enough money to pay my necessary bills...not looking for any 'get rich quick' methods or anything like that.

I didn't 'grow up' with the computer or the, it's all pretty new and foreign to me.

Hopefully I'll be able to do it before I'm ready for my rocker!

Watching Big Brother

Oh my gosh...'Big Brother' was just filled with drama tonight...not one...but TWO house guests taken away by freaky was that?!!
I had to watch it late...thank goodness for DVRs.
My oldest daughter Wendy, had to go to Omaha to pick up her husband, John. He flew back from Salt Lake City...his mom's in pretty bad condition. Prayers to her and the family.
That's three trips to Omaha in just over a week...hopefully that's IT for a while. I used to travel all over the United States...not so much anymore!
I am soooo far behind on everything!! I asked Jaime to finish up my ACEOs needing shipping, while I was gone to Omaha....she couldn't find them. It was late enough when I got back..I'll just have to do it first thing tomorrow. Nothing is late going out but, I really do like to do fast shipping whenever I can.
I really need to get some new paintings painted...I am losing all of the ideas I've come up with the past few days...I think from all the 'traveling' I'm doing to and from Omaha:)
I've got a new Squidoo Lens I hope folks will's the link...

A new day...a new thought!

I think this will be the next PEZ piece that I will offer in my CMZart Etsy Shop.
I think the grandbabies will be here soon!

I think I need to come up with more activities to keep their sharp little minds a little more stimulated, so they won't have to make up for it by stimulating their messy little hands.

I think I have to get busy and get more paintings painted! I'm running out of originals on my sites and I have taken on even more!

I think I need to come up with something clever for St Patrick's is a day of special meaning for me and I really need to celebrate it!

I thought this worth sharing....

Some changes in CMZart Etsy

I have recently changed my accepted payment policy, in both of my Etsy Shops, to accept PayPal payments only.

By doing this, it safeguards my collectors - because of PayPal buyer safety policies.

It also safeguards me, as it provides a way to track all of my US shipping. (I'm still at the mercy of the postal system to get my International ACEO and print shipments safely to their order to keep my shipping prices down, I send these First Class Mail in regular envelopes.)

For stretched canvas paintings, I will be able to track to all locations, as I send those via USPS Priority Mail.

This will not affect those collectors who have made pre-arranged payment methods.

Since I have to work from my home and I seldom leave it, I am unable to take packages to the Post Office in order to purchase delivery confirmation, which provide tracking numbers for non PayPal purchases.

I had hoped that I would be able to accept money orders and checks, but this is just not working out for me and is more difficult on my collectors. For those who do not have PayPal, contact me before purchase and we will see if there is something we can work out.

The Next PEZ Art piece for Etsy...

I have begun making sales for Limited Edition ACEO Prints of the PEZ piece, 'Behind A Picket Fence'.

This piece, 'In Memory of Trees', will be listed next week in my CMZart Etsy Shop.

I am so very pleased to be able to share these very limited edition prints of my late husband's wonderful work with others.

Feb 15th NOTE:

I was planning to list this piece in my CMZart Etsy Shop last week. An emergency arose and the listing date of this piece has been rescheduled for next week.

Now on Etsy....

'Behind A Picket Fence' --- limited edition 8 x 10 print -- from the original painting by my late husband, Patrick E. now available in my CMZart Etsy shop.

His initials do appear on the front of the print, at the base of the tree and the prints...with a very Limited Edition of 10...will be signed and dated by me as owner of the copyright.

I am only selecting a few of his pieces and each of these will be limited to editions of 10.

I am very excited to offer these wonderful abstract botanicals and expect the prints to go quickly.
