For my repeat visitors (and I SO appreciate every one of you) I got my blog problem straightened out. I've been working on it all day and I think now I can say it's done. You might notice it's a little different. ;-)
I loved the black background but it kept making feel like I needed to change my business name to better reflect what I think the black represented. It's a bit of a long story, but I came about my business name a bit by default and it would be just to disruptive to try and change to something else at this point in time. Thus I decided to totally embrace the Shabby Cottage part of my name and hopefully my blog now reflects my name. I think it's pretty and I always strive to make my art pretty. Even though some people turn their nose up at pretty I think the world today can never have enough of pretty. Now, did I use the word pretty enough times? :-D
So, OK, wanna see something pretty? I have spent the first part of this year digitally designing my own paper and am ready to put some of it out here in the world, see how it's received. Since I would never know what another artist might want to do with the paper I wanted to make sure they could use a wet media with the papers. So all my papers are laser printed. You will start seeing them on Ebay and Etsy. There are varying sizes of one design per 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper.
