Dreams Don't Work Unless YOU Do



It's 2017...
....a brand new year with brand new opportunities.
For a few years now I have been bouncing through this artist life trying to figure out EXACTLY what I want to do with it and what I want out of it.

This year it hit me...LICENSING.

Licensing with all of it's ups and downs, trends that go in and out, the thrill of seeing YOUR artwork on a manufactured product on a store shelf or on a garden flag in someone's yard....is what makes my heart pitter-patter.

It's not an easy road and it takes years to really see a steady income from working as a licensed artist, but I am finally there, and ready to make it my main pursuit.

This year I am jumping in with both feet (instead of repetitively dipping my toes in Etsy, eBay, Zazzle, etc.) and concentrating on it with full force.

I will be closing my Etsy shops and deleting my email lists, BUT will be keeping my updates going on Instagram and Facebook and will still be offering digital crafting design through Miss Daisy Stamps and occasionally offering small originals to purchase on my FB page. Etsy shop will close THIS Friday (1/20) : use code DREAMS50 for 50% off what is in the shop to grab what you'd like before we close.    ALL items from the shop have already been SOLD.

I was trying SOOO hard to find EVERY avenue to make a living at art, when the answer that works best for me was being neglected. I was spreading myself too thin and taking everyone along for the ride.
Sorry about that, friends.

I hope you'll still join me here for updates, artist interviews, and everything else creative.

Thanks for your love and support...I have a GREAT feeling about 2017....this IS THE YEAR to make it happen!
