LOTS of new items added to my Etsy supply shop…!

as an artist who likes to try out any creative medium i can get my hands on, i have lots of art & craft supplies. LOTS. so i opened a second Etsy shop (Susie’s This & That) to destash these extra supplies. i’ve used several of these items in my mixed media and assemblage art pieces – the miniatures especially are perfect for Dia de los Muertos shrines, altars, and art pieces.

the shop (which i opened in february of 2012) has really taken off! it keeps me busy; i wish my Etsy art shop and our website were as busy, but i’m grateful for any and all sales coming in…

here are some of the items from my supply shop. several i just added over the weekend – some of which have already SOLD OUT! πŸ™‚

check out my husband’s new Etsy shop!

hey again…

after the experience we had a few weeks back (remember my last blog post? opportunity knocked – we answered!) i think my husband was inspired to get back to creating more work – and he decided to open HIS own Etsy shop!

his shop opened this week; he only has a few pieces, but each one is unique, mixed media in style, and if i say so myself – very cool.

here are some pieces created by Lawrence. let me know what you think – and then head over to his Etsy shop, Art by Lawrence Aguilar. it’s still in the very beginning stages, but we’re working on it…and remember, Lawrence also has work available at our website Arte de Nuestro Corazon.

who knows, one of you reading this may be his first Etsy customer! πŸ˜‰

’til next time…
