Today I am very thankful both my girls were old enough to have the flu mist instead of the shot. ­čÖé Went on our annual family fun trip to get those this morning.

Willow tried tasting the paint today which she discovered isn’t good at all.

I broke my curse of not selling art for a year and a half. Someone bought something last week and then I have sold a lot of Yule greeting cards. I only have one left. I am thinking of getting some more and packaging them together maybe. The other idea I was thinking of was to get sets of cards with my art/photos on them. Maybe that is something that would also sell well? The larger paintings I have done (16 by 20) don’t reproduce that well since they are based on texture┬á but there are several that would work and the photos of course. No luck at the photography show last month. No sales and little interest which the organizer/curator said happens. I don’t feel bad since mine wasn’t even the best work and one of the other men had really awesome stuff and didn’t sell any. I don’t like to compare myself but sometimes it helps when I know that I had nice work and so did others. I am really appreciative of being included in the show to begin with and for all the attention or comments I have gotten this past year. I am really lucky and so happy and thankful! Two of my friends have given me extra paint and texture┬á medium they were using so I could keep creating despite the cost of new material when you aren’t selling. I try to put money from sales into supplies so I have $28 to spend this month on canvas and such. ­čÖé
