Ruby slippers and a Sale Game

. Thursday, October 14, 2010

For starters, I posted a pair of Wicked Witch of the East Legs in my Etsy shop.
In the picture they are sitting on the start of an apothecary. A while back I decided the area I do my sculpting, was just utilitarian and boring, so I decided to jazz it up a bit. After thinking about it, decided I would like it to look like my corner belonged in Harry Potter. I don't know that I'll ever get it looking that cool, but it's already sooo much more fun and inspiring.

On to the sale. I love my Etsy shop even though I don't have tons of time to create new things, it still brings me lots of joy. So I got the idea to up the fun meter and have a sale. Not just a regular sale, but something more of a game. Each day I'm marking an item down by 1%. Today is day 4, so I've got it marked down 4%, not much I know, but tomorrow it will be 5% and so on. I've been having fun going in each day and making the changes.

The item I picked was the Flower with Faerie art doll.

Speaking of sales on Etsy. If you haven't seen it yet, someone came up was a website that posts Etsy items on sale. I wish it had a search box, but it's still pretty cool for a start. It's called Etsy on Sale if you want to check it out.

Blood suckers and sparkly feet

. Monday, October 4, 2010

The Count bust is all done and he is in my Etsy shop. I'm going to make more busts, that was really fun! Haven't decide of who (or is it whom?) yet though. I suppose "whom".... anyway...... I'm finishing up another pair of Wicked Witch of the East Legs. I'm so glad people are enjoying them. The idea came to me when I was looking an an artist rendition of a tornado on the Hi-Fructose Magazine website.

I'm also kicking around the idea of a miniature Stonehenge. My original plan was to do it to scale, but I've been reading to try to figure out exact measurements but I haven't found exact measurements of everything at Stonehenge so that's looking to be a bit of an unrealistic goal, unless I go out there with my tape measurer, so I may just have to come as close as I can.
