Fayette County Tourism

I will say that the people at the Fayette County chamber office
are super nice. I’m actually putting together the new tourism guide
but couldn’t gather any new event information. When I called they
were really friendly and got back to me quickly with new winter updates.
Plus, if I was not from here I would probably really like this area.
There’s a lot of cute things to do. Just avoid the mall area.

Be Creative Postcards?

I got a special request the other day for my “Be Creative” #2 to be printed
as an 8 x 10 and 4 x6 cards. It made me think that once I create a couple
more in the series I should have sets of postcards printed up for my shop.
People have asked me to sell my prints as postcards but I am not sure if
I want to do that just yet. I think starting the “Be Creative” set first might
be a nice start!

Vivienne Strauss Collage

I couldn’t help posting this collage that I came across in Vivienne’s shop.
I just finished up an art history class and my favorite period was the Dada
period. Vivienne has a section in her shop called “daDA collages”  which
you can definitely see she pulls some inspiration from that period. She has
some amazing pieces but for some reason this one caught my eye. I think
I like the guy’s creepy smile and his blue tie!

Get Noticed by the Blogosphere

I have been wondering that age old question: How do you approach
other bloggers without being annoying? I mean if you have artwork
or something you want to promote you have to get out there and just
do it. Liz and Kegan who are from the blog Design Glut answered
questions about how to approach different bloggers.

Etsy must have read my mind because they always have a good articles
but this one in particular caught my eye:
