just kool enjoy you vacation
We are off for a year of travel in 2016
I am at the time in life where the end is in the near future. My husband and I have decided to sell everything and travel for an extended period. I will reopen my shop when we return.
I started out in 2008 listing my photographs in my Etsy shop. I had been taking photographs as a serious hobby for about 30 years and had gotten pretty good at it. I had a few shows and a few publications of my work, I dabbled in it because I was too busy working in the real world to take time for exploring ART.
Very quickly I got to know the other creative people on Etsy and began to realize that I did not have forever to explore my creative side ( I am approaching retirement which made me think about what amount of time I have left) . So I started to evolve and discover the artistic world. What could I do with my photographs to make them useful for everyday enjoyment not to just hang on a wall. I made photo magnetic bookmarks, photo ACEOS, photo pendants on rummy-O game tiles, ceramic photo coasters and photo greeting cards.
Then I discovered mixed media collage and started making collage ACEOS ( art cards), and that led to learning how to make mixed media art and travel journals. I discovered on youtube how to alter old books and make them into journals or smash books. What fun, gesso, metallic paints and vintage paper and prints.
Since I needed vintage paper and prints in my collage and journal work, I started looking in thrift stores and estate sales for old broken books. I discovered that I like collecting and selling vintage books , old maps, and art prints.
Oh my gosh, there were all kinds of interesting items being sold at estate sales. I got the privilege of seeing the memories and artifacts of some interesting people. Their treasured items reflected their memories from long ago. What an insight into some ordinary people with some extraordinary experiences. One couple, whose sale I attended, had traveled all over the world. There were small gems among their memorabilia. Some of those treasured items I have kept, but some I have listed in my shop.
I hope sharing my creative evolution will help you understand why there are so many different items in my shop. My wish for you is to discover your creative and juicy life force and revel in it. My hope for me is to continue to evolve and explore my world and share some of the more interesting discoveries with you.
