My Etsyversary!


" I will bloom for you" - Original Fabric on Wood art

It is my Etsyversary today...I have been there exactly 1 year!!!! I actually didn't list my first item until the next day March 4th, 2007 but I joined on the 3rd of March last year after finding out about Etsy while at a Trunk show I was participating in. I have had 98 sales on Etsy and a ton off of Etsy this year. I turned my art into a small business - ShellieArt LLC. I have not worked a 9-5 this entire year and then some. I am truely luck to have been home with London for his whole life so far! Etsy really has given me an avenue to sell my originals and now prints to the whole world! So far I have sold my work throughout the USA, Canada, Spain, UK, Australia, Germany, and France! My goal was to get 100 sales on Etsy in my first year so I am not too much off the mark. CHEERS to Etsy and all the possiblities it brings to all of us independent artist who are not good at marketing ourselves! - ha ha

I love you Etsy!!!- really I do




"Little Red Fox on her Way" - Original Fabric on Wood art (Sold) but I have Archival Prints

I sold the original of this one and then the print all within a day- strange but exciting!

I'm a fan of your work, congrats on your etsy year. I'm hoping to focus on my shop this year but the shows I'm in get the way. I love the song on your site, my fav from Moulin Rouge.
