Back to the Flamingo
Ok, if you remember a while back I posted my "flamingo" fabric painting. It is very free and fun, a long way from my detailed pet portraits that I have been doing. I find that I often need a break between portraits. In as much as I enjoy them, they can be draining. I have always loved sewing and especially hand embroidery work. I have decided to develop a line of purses. These will be known as "goodebags". Now, aren't I clever! The handbag on your right is my first adventure into the land of "goodebags"! If you are interested in purchasing my very first "goodebag", check out my new Etsy Site. I spent almost the whole day setting up the shop and listing my two items. I plan to offer not only "goodebags" on Etsy, but also my original paintings. It will take a while to build inventory, but "goode" things come to those who wait. I know, I know----I'll stop now. Seriously, I encourage any and all to check out Etsy. It is a community of some very talented artist and craft persons. If you are looking for something special, I'm sure you can find it there. Many of the items are "one-of-a-kind" and there is a large range of prices. Isn't it time we stop giving our hard earn dollars to the big corporations and especially to China.
