So Many Directions

Liliya-8x10 Mixed Media Painting

I have so much going on lately.  It’s so hard to keep my head straight and keep up with what I need to do.  I need to get ready for a couple of shows, plus I have a couple of projects that I’m planning right now.  Sometimes I feel like there needs to be three of me.  Making a list really helps me, but sometimes making the list seems so time consuming.  Do I really have time for that too?  Do you ever feel that way?  I need to somehow get grounded and find my bearings.  Really, I need a vacation, but that’s not possible, so what’s my alternative?  I should probably just lock myself in a room and sit quietly for a few minutes, but at this moment, even that’s not an option.  Wow. 

So, I guess the best thing I can do is get to work and push through it.  My plan is to get everything organized for Saturday’s show tonight instead of waiting until the last minute like I normally do.  I think that’s why I always walk around with a feeling of panic.  Not sure why I do that to myself, but for some reason, I just can’t help it.  It’s like a sickness.  Procrastinate until you can’t any longer, then have a panic attack.  You would think I would learn my lesson.  We’ll see what happens tonight!

I’ve got lots of new work coming up to show you so stay tuned.  I’ve got lots of new stuff in the shop, so make sure you go check it out.  Great things are coming!

A Giveaway and a Sale

I have a couple of things to celebrate.  I have been working very hard on both my Facebook page and my Etsy shop.  I decided to have a giveaway once I hit two hundred likes on Facebook.  I have, however, decided to give everyone until March 15th to get in on it.  All you have to do is like my Facebook page.  For another chance to win, post about my giveaway on your page, and come back to my page and post in the comments under the giveaway and let me know that you have shared it.  And for a third chance to win, all you have to do is follow my blog.  I will pick three items from the shop and let the winner pick which one he/she likes out of those.

The other thing I’m celebrating is that I have been working very hard to get more things in my shop.  I now have 50 items in there.  So in honor of this milestone, I’m having a sale.  Until the end of the month, I am offering 25% off on anything in my shop.  Just use coupon code CELEBRATE. 

I have a few other things in the works, so keep checking in so you won’t miss anything.  I will be at Art ‘til Dark again this year.  I will make announcements on Facebook regarding dates.  Also, I’m going to be doing the River Market and Chattanooga Market this year as well.  I will make announcements on Facebook regarding dates. 

I have been working on a new direction with my art.   Don’t worry, I’m not giving up my girls, but there are some other things I want to explore.  I’ll be posting pics soon.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these pictures of some new things I’ve listed in the shop.
