So busy...

I've been so busy trying to 'find my brand'...whatever the heck that means...that my CMZ Art Etsy Shop is beginning to remind me of a flea market booth.
I want to spend the next few weeks restructuring this shop...and remove everything that I am not completely happy with.
I'm 'farming' out all of my prints...through a source I found on Etsy.
They will soon be professionally printed on a Canon IPF6100. All papers and inks used are archival, and the prints are guaranteed to last for over 100 years.
I haven't yet decided on the paper...since I'm still waiting for my sampler pack...but, I'll let you know more when I decide.

Changing directions...

...I'm not actually changing's more like I'm 'expanding my horizons' art horizons anyway.
I've been learning how to do digital art and I have really liked the finished product. I've sold several of my digital pieces and the prints are coming out great. I'm so very pleased with them.
I've manipulation, digital paintings and illustrations, digital collages...and more. Here are a few of the pieces I've listed the past few weeks.
They are all listed in my CMZart Etsy Shop.

Etsy is 'Down' today....

So, what do you think of my new piece. I am learning how to use PhotoShop and this is a piece I created digitally. I LOVE it! I think it has a 3D effect almost. I do have it listed in my CMZart Etsy shop as a digital print.

Etsy is down today..I guess. I can't get on anyway. I'm assuming their servers are having problems, what with all of the folks who are migrating from eBay to Etsy.

It drives me crazy when I can't get onto Etsy. I was that way when I first left eBay. I must be a little 'OCD' because I have a routine...I get up, turn on my computer and the weather channel, make coffee, log onto Etsy, check for convos..sales...renew something in CMZart and in Rustic Goth, check my emails...etc. When I can't do that, it's like...'OMG, what am I going to do now?" I really need to calm down a bit.

So, I opened yet another shop...on iCraft!

This puts me on....
Art by Us
Art Cards Wanted
Cafe Press

and now...iCraft.

Most of these sites do not require a lot of micro-managing, so I don't yet feel totally overwhelmed. But, with this being how I make my living and pay my bills, I'm determined to be as visible as I possibly can!
