Mary Musgrove that is … It’s about time she got a little recognition…an important figure in history don’t ya know? Anyhoo…I was tickled pink to see her featured on the FoundHanmade Blog along with some other Native American inspired goods.

Pretty swell right?  I might add, it’s quite fun to shop around the FoundHandmade site, and they have some stellar deals for sellers looking to promote…oh but this is the best part.

this and that…

February 4, 2009

Everybody likes to harp on the negative…the economy…the slower sales…the yata yata yata, and I’m not going to lie, I’ve experienced a little lull just like the rest of you folks out there.  I’ve had to work a lot harder to rope in commissions and reach a broader market, but in the midst of all this negativity, there is something happening in the arts that really gives me hope.

I’ve seen artists across the board working very hard to support and promote each others work.  I’ve seen locals pulling together markets, art shows, and festivals, on shoestring budgets just to get the word out…I’ve seen galleries on the verge of closing shop, stay afloat by artists willing to volunteer their time.  I’ve seen more artists sharing their blog forums to promote other artists work.  It’s so wonderful to ride out the storm with such a great support system of like-minded people.  I can’t thank you all enough!

Oh and speaking of sharing the love…PaperMichelle was kind enough to feature me on her bloggity blog…CLICK! As did  AJ all the way in Canada! ..CLICK! I’ve added both these gals to the blog list, so be sure to see what they’re up to from time to time.

In other happy news…I received my Glass Diamonds Print from the ever so talented Victoria Bennett Beyer today!!!  It’s even more gorgeous in real life, I’ll be sure to post more on this little gem when I get her all framed and happy.  AND…(saving the best for last you know…)  My new printer is here, and fired up!  New prints and a new Etsy store are in the works…It’s like Christmas!

Nothing makes an artist happier than seeing his / her work appreciated by other artists.  I was pleased as punch that fellow southern (though displaced) artista Victoria Bennett Beyer wanted my work in her collection…now she’s given me quite the write-up on her blog!  You must  CHECK IT OUT! (thanks Vickie!  I can’t wait to get my Glass Diamonds print)

In other news, Vayda’s working hard to raise awareness for Spay Day 2009…of course the puppy prizes are pretty enticing too…Be sure to check out her little page and place a vote…you know she’s the cutest!

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday

spreading the word…

Thanks to all the folks that have spread the word about the Savannah Market Bazaar! I’m so excited to meet all of you, and I think it is going to be lots of fun!  SavannahBest, we really appreciate your write-up…oh and mucho thanks for plugging my Foodie Prints on your Dining Blog!

In other news, you may be seeing an awful lot of pink lately…and that’s because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  If you’d like to give to a good cause (and take home some lovely art), be sure to take a trip down to Tybee and visit my friends at Gallery by the Sea and Seaside Sisters. All month long they will be having a “Save the Ta Ta’s” silent art auction in the galleries.  Some of Savannah’s finest artists have turned out for this event…and guess what?…I’ve donated two of my original works to be auctioned off!  That’s right, I said it…original works!  Those of you who know me, know it’s very very rare that I part with an original…(they’re kind of like my babies)…so put your flip-flops on and spend a day at Tybee.  Here’s a peek at one of them…
