***SALE*** This weekend only!

November 27, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  We’re looking forward to some of Granny J’s cookin’ tonight, and maybe a little Christmas decorating later this weekend.  Of course, I also plan to do a little online shopping and I thought…what would Thanksgiving be without family, great food, and a great sale?  All things considered, I decided the perfect way to show my appreciation for said day, would be to throw an awesome sale on The Original Foodie Prints. Think Saundra Kay’s Okra & Tomatoes or Liz’s Deviled Blue Crab. You’ll even find a festive drink or two over there.  So skip on over to the produce stand and take a peek!  There’s never been a better time to start a collection, and they make for excellent gifts!

I think we’ll all be watching our pennies a little closer this holiday season.  There will be some great deals to be had, and for those of us on a tighter budget, it will mean really looking hard to find that perfect gift.  So this year, I’ve taken The Handmade Pledge. I’d rather my dollars support an independent artist, artisan, or craftsman, than a corporate machine.  The best part about it?…I end up with a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, thoughtful gift, and help an indie artist continue to do what they love.  Of course Etsy.com is a great place to start shopping for all things handmade, and they’ve got some really fun ways to navigate the site.  Check it out!

customer appreciation

September 19, 2008

As many of you know, Dingo, the Durango, and I needed to part ways.  It’s appetite for gasoline was a bit more than I wanted to pay, and the mileage was getting a bit out of hand.  So the great car search began.  I needed something I could haul all my paint supplies in, including a ladder from time to time…and something that would have space for a tent and tables should I participate in the occassional art show.   (oh yeah, and something that could take a little abuse…it is my car afterall…)  I spent hours, if not days perusing websites and scouting out the best deals around.

When it came to actually walking on the lot…one place stood out…Kia Country of Savannah. I walked onto their lot after first visiting their neighbors…the salesman over there didn’t give me the time of day…first, he laughed at the thought of trading my Durango…but worse…when I told him I was an artist, he seriously asked me “so you paint faces in the park?”…ummm…sure buddy, that’s how I plan to pay for these new wheels…Thankfully, my friends at Kia  (specifically Brian, Bob and Peter)…really treated me great.  They were more than pleasant to deal with, patient….(math isn’t my best subject)…and left me feeling like I not only gained a great car, but that they really truly appreciated my business.  (guys, if you’re reading this, thanks again, and know that I’ll throw a friendly discount your way should you want to replace the Colossal Grams with mural work…lol!)

Oh yeah, and to make my day just a little sweeter…I recieved my own customer apprecation, in the form of this photo…

Check out those Foodie Prints…(in custom sizes I might add)…Thanks for sending this photo Carly!  It’s great to see they found a happy  home!

P.S. if any of you loyal blog readers decide to go over to Kia…tell em’ I sent you!  (i could use that referral fee to put towards that new car payment…lol!)

Happy Friday!

Just in case you missed it…the Foodie Prints are now available for purchase in my Etsy Store!  Why not start your Christmas shopping in July?

Oh and for those of you unfamiliar with Etsy, note that it is THE place to buy and sell all things “hand-made”…it’s truly amazing!  I’ll be doing all of my Christmas shopping there this year.

Thanks for stopping by and happy shopping!
