Well, thanks so much for all your comments on my previous posts. It looks like there are quite a few people interested in promoting each other's Etsyshops! Way to go!
There's a small change of plans though. I'd wanted to do the promo-month in April, but I'd forgotten it's Easter-holidays then, and we might go away for a couple of days. Which means I would have to close my Etsyshop for that time, which means it's not much use doing any promotion .... And I might not be the only one in this position ...
But no worries. We either postpone it until the month of May, or we do it from the middle of April till the middle of May. Whichever you prefer. Just let me know in the comments. It gives me a bit more time to figure out how to put separate pages on my blog and how to make a Mr Linky. Also, some of you have indicated that you might be interested but your Etsyshop is not active right now. So it gives everybody a chance to get their shops looking the best possible, ready for all the new visitors :-)
I'll keep you posted!
Meanwhile, I've been doing some painting, but nothing finished yet. So I also made a new lyricsgirl.
And also a new oneliner ....
And today I also got a really nice surprise from England. Ziggy Shortcrust, a very talented artist, whom I virtually "met" during one of the 29 faces challenges, has set herself the challenge of reviving the lost art of the handwritten letter. She is doing this by writing a letter a day, but not just words, the letters will be illustrated with one of her famous Ziggy Elves. She sends these all over the world, to everyone who signs up on her blog to receive a letter!
So naturally, I signed up! And look what I found in the mail today!
Isn't it gorgeous to receive a letter like that!?
And there was another beautiful drawing inside the envelope. And a REAL letter ....
I am so happy with those wonderful drawings that came halfway across the world. I think it's a wonderful idea. When I was a teenager I had penpals all over the world, and whenever a letter with a foreign stamp arrived I got all excited. It is a shame that real letters are seldom written anymore.
So thank you Ziggy, for doing this and making me remember my long-ago favorite pastime!
If you want your own elf, hurry over to her blog, I'm not sure how many more days she has "free". You can sign up for her challenge here.
Well, that's it for now. I'll be back on Wednesday with a new inspiring artist post.
Thanks so much for stopping by! ♥
