Concentrating on my painting is going so well! HA!
I managed to spend the end of my week illustrating. My son has been at me for a long time to make some new art for his room. On Friday, he was a little unwell, so he spent the day on the couch at home with me. Together we brainstormed some ideas and he started sketching out robots and UFOs. By the end of the day, I had designed a poster for a UFO Identification Chart. Does that sound like an oxymoron?
So I still need to tweak the design if I want to print it out for anyone who might be interesting in buying it. But for now, I've worked on four of the UFOs we came up with and have created some 5 x 7" art cards. Now before you all going racing over (well I can only imagine that is what you would all be doing) to my shop to buy heaps of them. STOP.
I have decided that I will not be restocking my ETSY store. That's right. you heard me. I've just been a little bored with Etsy of late and selling in a foreign currency really frustrates me. I mean why haven't they allowed for different currencies? Every time the Australian dollar goes up or down, I'm having to change all my prices. And I just don't have the time to be rushing to my computer every couple of days.
So I am now selling in.......MADE IT. An Australian based online store. I've only just starting stocking in the shop, so there isn't much at this stage. MADE IT has been around for awhile. Yes, I will continue shipping to overseas customers. If the thought of buying something in Australian dollars scares you. I have three words. BUY A CALCULATOR. It really makes no difference when buying something, but selling in $US when you don't live in the US just really bugs me.
OK. There you go. I've had my spat. Hope I haven't scared you away. The UFO cards really are cute if you are trying to find a nice gift for a boy.
