Shop up and running!

And while I was patiently waiting for Etsy to get there act together I sculpted these.  All are Valentines pieces and the one piece with the bunny riding the blue bird, that can pass as an easter piece as well!  Double the fun!

So an update on my Etsy shop.  The "suspension" had nothing to do with me forgetting to update my CC on file.  Actually, after two miserable days I figured out that they THOUGHT I was selling my retired reproduction line from Enesco and Dept56.  They didn't read any of my listings.  They just assumed.  POOF... just like that my livelihood taken away.  It isn't right.  Not right at all.  I'm following up and a letter to them explaining how they might do things in a more professional manner.  Till then, enjoy the ONE of a KIND art I offer ; )

Better pic of pig in car

Up for grabs is this adorable Piggy out for a ride!

Since my Etsy shop is still closed due to Etsy's head up their unsunny place, I've got this listed here.  Pics looks a bit muddy but trust me, its my lack of light. He's super cute and his finish is just like the rest of my art :)  95.00!!  For size see pic with coin.  Janell.Berryman@gmail.com

No, I have not closed my shop.  If you visit you can see its "suspended".  Etsy does have a customer service number BUT it just says thanks for calling, we can't answer.  Frustrating!

About two weeks ago I had a gas station attendant take my debt card and place it directly onto his brand new iphone 6.  I was given a heads up with problems just as I experienced prior to getting gas at one of the stations in Astoria.  Its why my radar was on.  Seems thieves steal card info at gas stations all the time.  So of course, I had to cancel card.  I didn't think to update my Etsy shop with the new info.  And business's usually notify you if a card is not active.  But NOT Etsy!  They just close people's shops with NO notification.... how do I know this?  Read online reviews.  I state facts.  I state my personal experience and now I sit here typing my story and wasting time doing so.

Shop closed equals loss of money.

Thanks Etsy.

Three new characters arriving in my Etsy shop tomorrow!

The theme is love for Valentines day but whats great about these is that they can be for any time of the year!  In the batch from left to right...  a super fun octopus with a gear eye patch, a silly red "bolt" monster holding a heart and a mega cute bunny with orange flower.  Don't miss these!

Newest Valentine pieces

Just finished both of these pieces.  The pink Valentine pig is mini and just 26.00!  The Bee on the bench is soooooo cute!  He's a mini as well.  The Bee was three times the labor so his price is 45.00, which of course, includes the bench which is not attached.  Super adorable little treats made just for you!

sweet sentiments for Valentines day...

Feeling so ready for 2015!  I just cleaned up my work table and space.  Also wondering how long THAT tidiness will last! But with a fresh table comes fresh paper and a newly sharpened pencil.  Let the sketching begin.

Next on the holiday calendar is Valentines day.  And as usual, its a holiday I've always hated.  Oh wait, I just told a lie. As a child it was pretty awesome.  Oh wait, another lie.  Disappointment again.  I always had that feeling Charlie Brown experienced when he had received only a bag of rocks. Me? I never did that ONE Valentine I had hoped for from the boy down the lane.  Even at 8 I was let down.  So is there ever hope in the endless pursuit of love happiness?  

So in honor of Valentines day because it just sucks...  I'm conjuring up some love bugs.  Maybe a better name, love stink bugs. Ya, that it!  Love Stink Bugs.  

Come back again in a day or two and see what sweet evil characters come from my endless years of heartbreak.
