 I make art, because it makes me happy. Sometimes, the items I make coincide with an event, and are appropriate, so I will give them away; a card, or banner usually. However, I have been presented with an opportunity: potentially sell my crafts.
 I am excited, yet also dread this. The recipients of my crafts love me, therefore they support what I do. As I pondered what items to present to the shop that will be handling my art, I thought, "what if nobody likes my stuff?" "What if they don't like 1/2 of what I show?" ....
 And then I realized, I was being a half glass empty kind of girl...I don't want to be that kind of girl, I will think positive, a glass half full, if they like 1/2 of my items, then that's a good thing!

 Another thing that occurred to me...I am going to miss my art! I usually give my crafts to my family. And they keep them. I get to see them every time I visit their homes. My Mom has a big stash of cards I have made for daughter-in-law has all their cards displayed on the chicken wire frame I made for her. If I sell my things, they will be gone forever...

 So, here are a few pix of the cards I will be selling, just in case someone likes them well enough to buy them, I can look back on this post and see them!

 Basic Grey paper, vintage book pages, Pink Persimmon stamp, vintage buttons, the pink button came off my grandmothers housecoat many years ago...I remember watching her cut them off and add them to her button jar!

 Pink Persimmon stamps, the banner and Happy lettering....the flowers and hearts at the bottom were a little stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's. I embellished with book page leaves, colored pencils and markers

 Basic Grey papers, and Pink Persimmon Stamps

This is one of my favorite cards, made with one of my favorite stamps, the little girl from Pink Persimmon. I saw this stamp in Lisa Paces' " It's in the Details" craft how to book, and searched online until I found it! I love Pink Persimmon stamps!

 So, I am thrilled to be asked to sell my items, it is also pieces are like good friends, I will miss them.
