This NEVER happened on eBay. Had FOUR sales this evening. While I was chatting on the phone with my sister my inbox started cachinging with sale after sale. I am sooo
happy with the response that my clients have had to my leaving eBay and concentrating my efforts on listing on ArtACA only. I did post one piece on eB tonight. It's Nibblefest today so I couldn't resist listing a digital piece for 99 cents. Hopefully I'll get some bids but it's a way of getting folks to see that I'm listing on another site as well since I always do the artandcraftauctions(.)com thingie to comply with the rules.
So now I have some extra $$$ in Paypal and can actually use that 50% off coupon tomorrow morning! Yipee Skipee...this is working out so well. I've made more in the last month on the new site than I did the entire three months on the big E.
Off to bed but will be back to post again, soon...I AM getting better about posting!

Monday, March 17, 2008 ~ AND~ Another MONDAY!

My computer is having a nervous breakdown and I can't get any email out to friends. I've sold three pieces of art at artandcraftauctions and can't even let friends know that I'm sending their pieces out tomorrow. Should anyone see this posting, let everyone know that AACA is THE PLACE to sell your artwork!!! I've made more money in the last month there than on eBay in the last two months.

There are now over 285 users at and we have added user groups. I'm overworked keeping up with everyone and everything but it's worth it to see artists selling their work daily.

I'm trying to find time to get to my own artwork but it's hard. By the time I get done with keeping track of postings and memberships which is a left brain activity I can't seem to kick into right brain mode which is essential to my work. I've been able to get a few paintings done

But I'd like to do a couple of primsical know prim whimsy folk art...but I just can't dig out the hours I need and then I don't have the drive to get it done.

I'm frustrated but glad to have finally gotten ArtACA out of my head and into the 'real' world via the net. I feel like I have a newborn who needs constant mommy stuff done. Watching it grow up will be as satisfying as motherhood has been.
We added a new category called Art Dolls-OOAK for all of those dolls that aren't craft but aren't quite art either. I may even list my chimney pot faeries...if I can figure out where I've stored them.
