Art to Wear

More sewing and having fun. I love creating wearable art and unique clothing is where my path has been taking me.  With a show not far away I need to switch gears back to making some jewelry.  I might add in some fun purses for the show......... and possibly a fun shirt or two.  Doing shows tend to stress me out any more and I always wait until the last minute. I need to get more organized and maybe this wont be a problem. I keep saying that LOL!

Exploring options

I have been missing my blog and ignoring some of my online outlets.  I am very active on Pinterest and Facebook but I need to focus on some other venues also. I have been doing a lot of thinking and I keep coming back to what I need to get in order.

   I work full time in Accounting and that has to continue. My dream is to design and create fun clothing and accessories.  I also love primitives and will make those also.

 I started a free website but don't have it all up and running yet. Still thinking if that is what I want to do. I have to make things all work together so I don't get too spread out.  My Etsy shop needs updated and I have not been on the right page with that since I started. I don't get a lot of sales and I think a lot of that is I don't utilize the tags like I should. That is one of my fist projects I am going to work on. I plan a new look and some updating there!

There are so many options out there is is hard to chose what will be the best road to explore.
 Amazon is now offering handmade, You can sell off of Facebook, Pinterest ,and a website. There are many other selling sites also. What one do you choose to get the following and buyers you want??

Here is my newest vest, sewn and added the surface design! Enjoy

On the work table

Working on a witch. I have not made a doll for quite a while. I have been focusing on clothes and jewelry lately. Never enough time to do everything I want to get done. This year has not started out the best. I hope more positive things will start to come around.  Hugs

Direction and Balancing

I have not posted again for ever! I seem to have ignored my blog and I didn't want to do that!!
I have been creating lots of fun things and should be sharing here and not just on Facebook.
With working full time and it being stressful a lot of the time. I have put some of my social spots to the side. I need to not let my job do that to me. I love connecting and need to get back to it. I need to learn to not let my job stress me to the point where I ignore my art, my blog and what makes me HAPPY. So with 2014 coming to an end my path and goals for the new year are to keep my blog current, start a website,and find plenty of time for my ART! So plan to stop by more to see what is new and fun from ARTBYMECINDY!  I am posting a couple of my favorite recent pieces.

Making my way back

O my! I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted on my blog.  The first several months of the year in my job are nuts! work load is overwhelming and hard for me to keep balance in my life.
I hope I can find a different job soon. Just not happy there anymore!
 I have been doing a lot of sewing and want to get my Etsy shop updated and start listing some fun clothing. I have always wanted to design clothing. So soon I plan to start listing some clothing in my shop. Who knows maybe I can make my dream come true and start selling some fun things.
I plan to get back into the swing and start posting more!

Hugs for now!

Merry Christmas!

It comes so fast and is over so fast. All the prep and getting ready for a joyful day with family. Sometimes we get so over loaded with all the hustle we forget the true meaning of the big day. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, we should all take time in our day to be thankful and remember the true meaning of Christmas. I hope you all have a joyful and wonderful day with your family and friends.

Getting on Track

I have not posted on here for ever! I never seem to have enough time to keep everything updated and current. I am surprising myself with getting Christmas ready! My trees have been up for a week and I even put some presents under the trees last night. I am never this far this early!! scaring myself a bit.
I do have several things to make yet and hope to get started today.  It is cold and don't think I will be running around too much today. We were lucky and dodged the snow so far, we could get a little today. I hope to stay one top of everything and keep more updated. I am struggling with my career and not sure where I am going with that, might be time for a change!
Now if I can stay off of Pinterest I might be able to get some things done!!
