Hi, there!

My name is Kathy Jeffords and though this shop is new to Etsy, I'm not!

I've had a shop called The Dreamy Giraffe Collection here for four years.

When you join Etsy and sign up to sell, if you visit the forums, you'll be given a lot of advice and one thing I heard a lot that was important was to have a cohesive style.

I started out painting cute big-eyed girls and though my style has evolved since I put up my first listing in 2005, I have kept The Dreamy Giraffe Collection pretty cohesive...and though I love it and I can't imagine any other type of work ever being my primary style...I have to admit I was limiting myself a bit.

You see, though I had TONS of ideas for paintings of…

Hi, there!

My name is Kathy Jeffords and though this shop is new to Etsy, I'm not!

I've had a shop called The Dreamy Giraffe Collection here for four years.

When you join Etsy and sign up to sell, if you visit the forums, you'll be given a lot of advice and one thing I heard a lot that was important was to have a cohesive style.

I started out painting cute big-eyed girls and though my style has evolved since I put up my first listing in 2005, I have kept The Dreamy Giraffe Collection pretty cohesive...and though I love it and I can't imagine any other type of work ever being my primary style...I have to admit I was limiting myself a bit.

You see, though I had TONS of ideas for paintings of big-eyed girls and there was really nothing else I'd rather be creating...I also had other ideas. Ideas that wouldn't fit into The Dreamy Giraffe Collection. New things I wanted to try. And they wound up being relegated to a "Ideas for Later" list.

Well. It occurred to me recently that, you know, when I'm 85 and on one of those around-the-world cruises just for senior citizens, I'll probably want to be laying out by the pool or on the prowl for a cute little old man to call my very on instead of holed up in my cabin feverishly working my probably brittle fingers to the bone to finish up all the ideas on my "Ideas For Later" list, which, at that point, would probably be about 5000 miles long.

So I decided...why wait?

And with that long-winded spiel, I now formally introduce you to Think About Rainbows, my shop for all of my "Ideas For Later".

Later is now.

I really and truly want to try every kind of creative medium there is out there...so you never know what you might find here, but new work will be posted frequently, so please check back often!

Love,

KJ
