Shop Updates Along with General Website: Expectations vs. Reality


Hello to all,

I want to start by saying thanks for allowing me to bright up your day with my artwork. I hope that each time I website you guys go scroll through it. You enjoy the work I have put into the website. I have built it from a temple on WIX and worked to learn the ends and outs of editing myself with some occasional help from my cousin who has a degree in web design. So, this is the second time I have done a shop on my website. The first time I hadn’t sold any artwork yet and I also hadn’t gained a large enough of a following yet. This is time of revolutionary changes having to my website to prepare for the rest of 2020.



Today the website’s shop will be update with a few new artwork’s for sale. One of those will be another one of a kind painting. I will also be updating my services and offering to draw anything you’d like along with a list of mediums you can choose for color. These will only cost six dollars unless you want a canvas painting then It will be Ten dollars {this includes shipping and handling}. I will be offering up to five of these custom pieces at this time.



The discounts on the website will remain until March 8, 2020. The email list will receive their promo code again today with any other offer in it. I am also panning on adding an about page to my website with a picture of me and a little of my backstory. I will also be updating my social medias as well. I am planning to draw a sketch to use as a cover photo for my social medias.


I am also going to start doing bullet journal flats out pictures at the end of the month for now I will show your January’s and March’s first blog will have February’s in it. I want to talk about something now that’s not such alight hearted topic. I was writing this blog post yesterday and I was nonstop on the go till about 5 pm in the afternoon. I then found myself in a bit of depressive mood so instead of pushing through it I decided that I wanted to not push away the feelings but instead acknowledge them and work through them.


Here’s the reality of it if we push ourselves to hard then we will end up in a state of burnout resulting in less creative moods. In 2020 I had set myself a posting schedule only missing my blog post day on Thursday once. I found that doing this I’d beat myself up for not being super prepared for the weeks blog post. So, I rushed to finish it and honestly, I felt that I done a disservice to you all my reads but more importantly to myself. Now is when that changes, I started this post on Wednesday then told myself I finish it on Thursday morning. Forgetting that my son had a doctor’s appointment two hours’ drive from my house. So, here it is Friday morning at 11:14 am and I am finishing the blog post.


If all artist rushed to finish their work would we appreciate the story behind the journey behind the making of the artwork. I think not so I am going to give myself a little bit of patience and grace.


Last thing I will say is that I am trying to reach 25 followers on my twitter by the end of February. This is an early birthday give for myself so help me by sharing my blog post and other things like my artwork thanks.
