I know it’s Friday afternoon and that’s not the best blogging time since most people have already hightailed it to their favorite bar for happy hour or have now extended happy hour into Drunken Friday evening (which will then turn into what-was-I-thinking Saturday morning).
However, for those of you here on the West Coast who are whiling away the minutes before the end of the work day I thought I’d clue you in on a recent update to my shop.
Hold Onto Your Hats, Here’s the Update
I’ve removed the listings for greeting cards and greeting card gift packs.
“Oh no!” I hear you scream in distraught horror. Before you panic and start wondering if your boss will notice you sneaking that flask from your desk drawer as you try to drown your sorrows, do know that all is not lost for my greeting card senders.
All the prints on my shop can still be made into greeting cards and any time you buy four cards (for the price of three), they will be packed up into my very lovely greeting card gift pack complete with ribbon and gift tag (oooh ahhhh!!). All you have to do is send me a note via Etsy and I can create custom order for you.
Why the Change?
So if I’m still offering cards, why not just keep them listed? Well, the duplicate listings for cards and card gift packs was cluttering up my shop. And, with images for the cards and the prints being similar, that clutter gave the shop a confused look I didn’t think was inviting.
This does mean my shop shelves are a bit bare. That’s not because I haven’t been cranking out a couple pieces of art each month. I have and have considered adding more prints to my Bookstore & Gallery, but I’m still uncertain if I like the Etsy system so I’m holding back for now. Later this month I’ll make the big decision of whether to keep the shop live or to find another (or additional) online venue that is more art centered.
Looking for Originals?
As always, many of my originals are for sale directly through me. Although my favorite pieces can’t go to new homes until my gallery showing via the Artist Exhibit Program later this year, if you’d like to put anything on hold to purchase after the exhibition, you’re welcome to do so.
That’s it…have a great weekend everyone!
