This past year I took steps to sell some of my items on wholesale to shops and boutiques. I had been planning and researching this process for a while and I want to share 6 steps to a successful handmade business that I found to be essential. After selling my original art, prints, journals and note cards at craft shows and my shop, I decided to move into the wholesale market.
Hello friends! This is Carmen with you again to share a quick Summer craft that you can create for a special picture. This also makes a wonderful gift for birthdays or graduations.
It’s Summer time and that means time to start preparing for a new Fall Show Season. Part of that entails doing some clearance of my inventory and making room for new designs. I have a small inventory of cotton canvas prints that I will be discontinuing and I’ve reduced them to wholesale prices!
Yes, I know I’ve been missing in action lately and it’s been weighing on me! But, I have a very good reason to be taking some time off. This month of May has been a busy month for my family with my daughter graduating high school and turning 18!
Hello friends! I have a new obsession in my gardening life, succulents! I love their diversity and ease of care. I use them outside in my garden, in pots on my patio and indoors also. Today I’m sharing with you how I updated an old terra cotta pot with some chalky finish paint, a stencil and some soft pastel succulents.
Today’s project was created for Bella Crafts Publishing, so hop on over to their blog and see all the details.
This is a bittersweet blog post for me. It is my last project for The Crafter’s Workshop Design Team. I can’t believe the year has flown by. I have met so many creative people and I’m so grateful to their corporate office for the support they’ve given me. I truly love these stencils and will continue using them.
Hello my friends! Spring seems to be rushing by and it’s almost May! Which means a May calendar page for your desktop, but it’s only available for subscribers to my Friends and Collectors List.
I love the idea that art isn’t confined to a canvas only. Walls and buildings can become canvases. Many cities embrace and encourage murals to revive neighborhoods. I’ve put together a collection of some cool street art that I think you will enjoy.
