Cherry on the top…

As is all the excitement of the last week wasn’t enough, I was busy on Flickr, looking at photos from my contact when I came across an entry from one of my favourites…Janey, at Janey’s Journey. Janey had been busy with her second ‘Zine thing’, a little booklet of illustrations called 15 Woofs and 1 Meow. Now I love Janey’s cats and dogs illustrations, so I hurried across to Etsy to see if there were any copies left. I had to join Etsy to be able to buy, so very hurriedly I registered and now I will soon be the proud owner of some original art by one of my favourite artists. I can’t wait for the booklet to arrive, or for the March ‘zine thing’. I think Janey is going to be very busy if she is intending to do one every month. This last booklet meant she had to paint 240 little cats and dogs (16 per booklet). I am sure demand will rise and she will have difficulty keeping up. Good luck Janey! Did I also say that Janey does this for charity too…in aid of an organisation which helps Haitian children. Please read Janey’s blog, and then follow her links to Flickr and her Etsy store. They are well worth a visit.

Go Janey!

So…Etsy! Shall I shan’t I? I have now joined Etsy as  member, but not yet as a seller. Still debating. Several questions to wrestle with first…the main one being is my work good enough, and closely followed with will I have time? I think I will give it a go. Silly not to really, but …I am still weighing it up. Any suggestions anyone?

    I had the same questions about selling on Etsy. There were two reasons I went ahead with it. First, it only costs 20 cents to list an item for four months so it’s not like you have much to lose. Second, I was afraid to! Sounds like a reason NOT to leap but I decided it was a small enough step that I could do it scared. Again, what did I really have to lose? So, obviously, I say go for it!

    Put like that, I don’t have much to lose, do I? Lol.
    If It doesn’t work, I can at least say I tried. Thanks for your help Foxgloves. It really helps 🙂
