I opened an Etsy shop!

I never thought that when I started painting little wooden figures & chess sets that I would end up selling any – let alone open an etsy shop! What started as a way to make Christmas happen has become something fun to do on the side for other people. Sometimes it can be a bit of a juggling act – taking the time to paint (one figure will take usually 1-2 hours to do – more if it’s highly detailed), work on my writing (and yes, I am still going & making progress! woohoo!), & of course, above all else, being a mom & wife and all that great stuff.

It also took more than a little bit of courage – it’s a bit daunting deciding to open your own shop – no matter how little it might be & I had to learn about things I never thought I would (like sales tax, heh). But I decided that it doesn’t matter if it is an epic flop – I don’t want to become world famous  – I just want to share something fun with others. So, swing on by & take a look – favorite my shop (it makes my heart glow when people do that) & like my shop’s FB page.

Here’s to having a little courage!

Star Wars!

Okay, late last night I finished my second peg people set

Star Wars!!The main challenge I hit here was not having a good super fine paintbrush. I had to dip my pencil in the paint and use that for Darth Vader’s & Yoda’s lines – which was really tricky and they’re not very smooth – I think the kids will still love them anyway (well, I hope so, at least!!)

This time I took the photo after I sprayed them with the clear acrylic spray – it makes such a difference!!

May the force be with you!! (and with me as I finish my other 3 sets!!)
