Art Is Life

Art is life, life is art. Nature (winter, spring, summer, fall), nudity, color, black and white, in reality, canvas, print, photography, drawing, sketch, pottery, glass, and wood.  Art is all around us.  How you view art is up to you. Whether it’s in real life (reality) or hung on the wall, or on your table, art is the spice of life. Give a comment and say what your favorite type of art is. Advertisements

It’s In The Blood Lines

Hidden Talent With moving out of the shop 10 months ago and cleaning up mom’s studio at home, I discovered a talent that I have and completely shut out since I 12-13 years old.  Mom found this huge brief case filled with drawings that I did in high school.  It took me a while to realize that I created these drawings and paintings, then it hit me like a ton of bricks that I actually did create these paintings and drawings.  I never really realized how good I was until I found some scrap paper and started to draw some things.  Realizing that I have a part of my mother’s drawing talent, I can create some great things on my own.  For example, I created this new logo above with a sketch app on my Amazon tablet.  It’s called a bohemian flower at midnight.  Being able to spread my wings and not only doing crochet, this is great.  Below this paragraph, is more drawings that I’ve created in the last couple of weeks, along with …

The Ripl Effect

With looking for new marketing tools for blogging and Etsy, I love trying to things. One day on Facebook, I came across this cool video app named Ripl. Add photos and make a video doesn’t get any better then that. Check out some new scrunchies that have been placed on my Etsy shop.

What a creative way to promote your Etsy shop with a video made of your creations. I created this slide show on my Photo Grid app on my phone this morning with some crochet, photography, modeling, scrunchies, and scarves.  Click on slide show, and slide show will take you to my freshly updated Etsy shop. Just to let everyone know, all listings on my shop have been updated with new shipping prices.

Shipping Changes On Shop LMProck

Dear Buyers, Due to the cost of shipping throughout the United States and everywhere else, free shipping is no longer available on my Etsy shop.  I also changed my Etsy account from Standard to Etsy Plus which means I have more options for customers to buy handmade items. When viewing items on my Etsy shop for shipping description, this is what you will see SHIPPING DETAILS will be available upon checkout, depending on where you live. Handmade crochet hook will be shipped United States Postal Service 1st Class Mail. Receive a free gift up purchase. Due to calculated shipping cost, size of your item(s) is right here in description. I have to change the size of item for shipping purposes. I also created a brand new Etsy shop banner with the beach and seashells.  I’m leaning towards a beach shop theme for my handmade items.  I also created a new shop icon that’s a seashell as well.   Sorry for the inconvenience for this change.  Looking forward to seeing you on Shop LMProck.

I feel like ever since I’ve been posting all these great things on my blog, my title did not suit me as well as it should.
