Welcome- I'm a newbie to Blogging

Hello all! Welcome to FineArt827's Life.

Wow!! I can't believe it's been a year since my last post?!?! I'm so sorry everyone! :( Let me tell you though... I will be back in action! It's been a crazy year and every crazier last almost 4 months! I have discovered lots of things and I have lots ideas that I want to share with the everyone in hopes I can save a few from the headaches, heart aches, and tears I've gone through.

This blog is going to be quite mixed... it's going to be personal advice for love and relationships, shopping and deals, products to use, ways to save money, and just general things I like to mention. A real mod podge of information so I hope some one if not everyone can find something useful out of it.

Please continue to read and enjoy!

Feel free to take notes!!

It's the Little Things in Life


So being on a tight budget I have to shop very conservatively and be very frugal. This time around I have wonderful useful groceries at the Dollar Tree!
For just $1.00 you can get Betty Crocker Warm Delight Singles (chocolate cake)!! The best little personal dessert ever and you know what? I can eat half and save the other half for later or the next day!! That's pretty awesome!! The other great grocery item I have found is Arizona Iced Tea Varieties - Green Tea, Sweet Tea, Original Reciepe 42oz bottles They aren't family size, but for a single person or maybe two, it's a perfect size for a buck! Frozen Carrots, Broccoli, Cauliflower - 1lb bag. Not sure if the supermarkets are really all that much different in price, but $.25 to every dollar does make a difference and it's just as good as the ones I've bought in stores.

It's the Little Things in Life

In this entry I am going to write on things of everyday life that I have discovered to be useful and will share with all my loving followers in hopes that it can be useful to you as well!

Today's little thing in life is Dermasil lotion. I've found this wonderful product at a very surprising place! Well, maybe not so suprising to all of us now a days since we all have to pinch our pennies, but none the less it was unlikely. I found this lotion at the Dollar Tree for, you guess it, $1.00. Now the reason I'm sharing this is because this stuff works like magic! It's the only lotion I have found to actually help with dry skin! Females and males alike can use it! So I know not all of my followers are from NJ where we have the Dollar Tree, but I would assume lots of other kinds of dollar stores would carry it too!

Dermasil Dry Skin Treatment Original Lotion hypo-allergenic, controls even severe dry skin

Feel free to ask me questins about it!

So I've decided today that since I've had to pick up a regular ol' 9to5 job I won't have much time for showings at studios or cafes and such. Today, I began adding the actual works of art along side the available prints. Heck, painting is my strong suit so I should go ahead and sell what I am best at and what is most unique. Two new listings are "What a Pear" 8x10 actylic and "Whirlwind of Emotions" actylic. Please check them out! (please note, when I get a chance to get away from my f/t I will take a better picture of "Whirlwind of Emotions")

Work in Continuous Progess

Little by little I am improving on my photographs and descriptions of my items on etsy.com. I've learned that descriptions and great photography is the key to making the sales on the internet. So each day I go in and tweak and adjust in hopes that it was all that it needed to finally sell! hehe =) *wink wink nudge nudge go buy it now!*

Of course I am also preparing NEW ITEMS for listing at the same time. Coming into my shop by the end of the week are some new pieces of jewelry. A few necklaces and a pair of earrings or two.
I've added a link here to a very helpful etsy storque blog posting that is really informative about writing descriptions and taking pictures. http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/best-of-the-etsy-forums-20-questions-your-buyers-are-asking-7024/?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_term=share+this+post+on+our+blog&utm_content=etsy_success_021610&utm_campaign=etsy_success_021610

Woohoo! My first posting and it's about ME!

Ok... where to begin? Let's see here... I will start by saying that my blog will primarily be to promote my little online store where I sell my arts and crafts. Oh wait.. I guess that should be the beginning... I'm an artist! =) A fine artist to be exact. hehe

I've been painting and creating my entire life. My mother's side of the family are all artists of some kind. Interior decorator, seamstress/ clothing designer, industrial and commercial sign designer, and of course my mother the art teacher.

I studied Fine Arts at Monmouth University.

I have a very wide variety of arts and crafts I like to do. Painting is my strong suit though. I really enjoy painting portraits of people and animals. I dabble in jewelry, photography, and ceramics too, but most of all I enjoy making little random crafts and selling for a nominal fee. =)

As I develop my blog I will talk about the materials and styles I use. Heck, if I put it all in here now, I won't know what to write tomorrow!

Please take a moment now to check out my little shop! http://www.finearts827.etsy.com/
