Business Wish List

Our EART Team is participating in a blog carnival and The first topic is:
Business Wish List
Create a wish list of up to 5 things/objects/items and describe why they are on your wish list for your small business!
Well this is an easy one and since it doesn't require me to spend any money I'm gonna GO FOR IT and post what has been my NUMBER ONE wish for several years.
THE Nikon D90 - the digital camera of my dreams. DX-format CMOS image sensor with 12.3 effective megapixels I have a Nikon film camera N90 that is my love and the auto focus lenses would definitely work on the digital one so I'm halfway there already!
I have a great Canon scanner and printer BUT since I'd love to be able to scan and print bigger sizes these are the two other items on my wish I had list.
Epson Expression 10000XL- Graphic Arts 12" x 12" Scanner
Epson Stylus Pro 7880 ColorBurst Edition Color Ink-jet printer
Happiness is not in having everything you want but being happy with what you have. I'm content for the moment but if I ever win a lottery, these are on the list!

It's that time of year again...SPRING!!! And every year I have a yard sale. I don't know how I always manage to find more stuff each year but I do and this year is no different, except...I've got CRAFT ITEMS that I won't just sell to any old passerby. These are items that are from private stash of goodies and I want them to go to the artists who will have the vision to turn them into ART. So I'm announcing that coming soon to my website (see icon above) will be a CRAFT SUPPLY yard sale that will make any crafter's heart go pitter-pat!!!

I haven't chosen a date because there is so much stuff to sort through but in April I'll choose a weekend to list everything and then will be announcing it everywhere on the web. Keep an eye on this blog to find out when you'll be able to find a yard sale deal without leaving your home!

eBay is Still Where it's AT

I'm still selling my penny auction ACEOs but I've noticed that the less I twitter, facebook or blog about my auctions, the less sales I have. I've got to work out a schedule for promotions 'cause that's where it's at. If you don't promote, you don't sell. So here's my newest piece up on eBay for just ONE PENNY!

Spring FUN!

I got my weekly mailing from This week's was all about Spring and I must say that after the recent blizzard here in Jersey it was as welcome as the first crocus bloom.
I used to subscribe and purchase their digital downloads until it occurred to me that I might be overly influenced by the artwork of their featured artists. After all I am an artist myself and although I LOVE being inspired I don't want to cross over into the copyright infringement arena. Now every week I visit the site and just enjoy the truly beautiful artwork of hundreds of talented woman like myself. Perhaps someday I might even aspire to sell my work to commercial site like PC's but for now I enjoy my sales on eBay and Etsy and every day find the pleasure that comes from being given the gift of creativity.
You can get a taste of Spring for yourself. I've linked the title of the blog post directly to their site so surf on over and enjoy the warmer weather they're showing.
