Yesterday, I hit a lovely milestone: the 500th sale in my Etsy shop. I opened the shop a year and a half ago…and now I’m ready to shut her down.

Not forever, mind you – but long enough to make some significant changes. When I do re-open the shop, there will be hardly any necklaces or fine art prints available. And the shop will have a new feel and focus.

I’m excited about this. And nervous, too, since I like making money! This change means I won’t be selling these items at shops or art fairs either. Gulp. But as my business grows {more to come on that!} and I find my groove as an artist, it’s time to prioritize and simplify. Making the necklaces and fine art prints is time-consuming and expensive; they’re no longer a labor of love, but rather a distraction from the work and art I really want to focus my energy on.

So, I’m clearing out my inventory. Now through next Monday {3/12} or while supplies last,  you can get 40% off a bunch of last-chance items. These items will not be returning to the shop and there’s only 1-4 of each item available. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Later this week, I’ll also be adding some art supplies to the mix – so stay tuned, fellow artists.  TO GET YOUR DISCOUNT, INPUT THE CODE GROWTH AT CHECKOUT.

I’m making room for a fresh new shop that focuses on greeting cards and special gifts, which I hope to have open by the end of March or early April. I can’t wait to celebrate that with you! Thank you so much for your kindness and support. Now, go get some great deals!!
