ArtGarageSale is a very new site and is very different from etsy.com in that, the site is advertised, and they currently do not allow vintage or supplies. It's not a juried site at this time and they are offering free listing fees until June 2009. So, I thought I'd give it a try.
So far I've only listed items which I have duplicates of from my Pink Pear Designs etsy shop but I plan to list some items that will only be available at ArtGarageSale just as I will have some that are only available at etsy.
So far, I am the only jewelry designer doing this style of vintage inspired jewelry. I'm hoping that by getting in early, I'll make an impression and won't be buried, like I am at etsy.
Last week, I listed my first three items and by Friday, had sold my 1st item. YAY!
I hope everyone will check out my new store!

What a sweet Koala, sleeping at the San Diego Zoo! Don't you just want to hug him?
Which one is the superhero?
The one on the right is my superhero. XXOOXX
The other is made out of Lego's.
Look! I'm a level 3 Planetary Pilot on the Buzz Lightyear game. So is DS. That is our favorite ride at Disneyland and also at the Magic Kingdom in Disneyworld.
And what is that attached to my arm? Why it's a sweet bird wristlet made for me by Cathie of Sweetwolf! Check out her etsy store - she will make you any color bird you want! I love my bird wristlet. It's very well made and so cute. The other side is white with black and the inside is a pretty turquoise blue.
Look out for the crazy driver!!!
Making out at Toontown. We mostly just do stuff like this to irritate our son. He thinks it's so gross when we kiss. So we made him take the picture. hahahahaha
The Azalea Trails Arts and Crafts show was a big success this weekend. Thanks to all my customers!!! I was a little worried about it because of the economic situation but apparently people in Tyler are still buying. YAY!

Anyway, the nice and really excellent housekeeping staff in the Disneyland Hotel left me this cute "cake" made out of towels and this sweet card with a signed pic of Mickey and Minnie. Thanks so much Disneyland Hotel staff - we enjoyed our stay! They also gave me a birthday pin and I wore it all day while at Disneyland. About a million people told me Happy Birthday. It was a little weird.
My own sweet hubby and son gave me these two cards and played a trick on me at the same time. They gave me a gift card to my least favorite store in the world (in fact I hate it) - Walmart. I just stood there looking at it and not knowing what to say. They know how I feel about that aweful place.
Then they said, "just kidding, that one's empty and your real gift is at home". So, I didn't strangle them that day.

I will have pics posted ASAP. We got some great ones.
My feet still hurt though and I'm really tired. I want one of those vacations where you just sit around the pool somewhere warm. California was not warm - 40's-60's all week :(

So, I had a flower left over. It was a cute flower with alot of petals. I just couldn't bring myself to stitch around every single petal, so I didn't use it on my pillow. But I still wanted to use it.
