Brightest blessings to all, and deepest thanks and gratitude to everyone who supported me and believed in me during the last year- and all those previously. :) I am so tremendously grateful to have so many sweet, kind, loving people at my side while I try and make my dreams come true. I love you all!
And HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^_^ May this be a blessed one for all of us, full of everything we want mixed with everything we need, as well. May it be a brightly blossoming, joyous year; filled with success, adventure, prosperity, peace, magic, abundance, hope and love!
Also in latest news: I bear good tidings! It seems the Etsy store has garnered 50 shop hearts (i.e. favorite listings), and in keeping w/my promise to have a sale when it reached that point, AV's having another sale! :D The winter holiday sale may be over, but I'd love to know what you guys want in an AV discount or coupon, this go-around. Tell me, how do you think AV and its Etsy & ArtFire shops should celebrate this event? Free shipping with 2 purchases or more? Or free shipping w/any purchase total beyond a certain point? Maybe another percentage discount, or 50% off all shipping, in honor of the big five-o? Habla commico, mis amigos! :D
Lastly, I have a vending opportunity coming up, and I'd love your opinion on that, too:
For all of my bellydancing practitioners and fans in the DC/MD/VA region (as well as beyond), I'm about to start making work for vending @ the "Art of the Belly" Belly Dance Festival, held in MD in March. My question to you is: What would you like me to create for you, outside of clothes or fabrics? I am a burgeoning dancer who is a HUGE fan of the art, and I can make all kinds of stuff; just not the typical fare you see at most belly-vending tables. As some of you may or may not already know, I do 2-D pieces (drawings, photos), poly-clay doodads, some basic beaded jewelry.. plus, I also just bought a few chargers to decorate- originally for spiritual purposes and wall decor. But that did make me wonder: What do you need in the way of good balancing trays? What makes a good tray for dance use..? Can I make you something personalized and lovely for dancing with, sil vous plait?
Lastly, I thought maybe I could also do henna/temporary body art. Is that something that would fly, do you think..?
Do you have any druthers?
Many Thanks for Your Input, and a Very Merry, Wonder-Filled, Magickal and Happy New Year to you all!
