Since this is my first holiday season on Etsy, I feel as though I'm the blind leading the blind. I have no idea what to carry in stock, so I guess I will just hold steady with the inventory that I have and let the chips fall where they may. Right now, I have a very limited number of prints on hand and the turnaround time for the printer is almost 2 weeks. I wish we had a local printer here. I have a feeling that a home printer may be in my future if I keep running into problems. Next year I hope to be better prepared.
One thing I have noticed is that admiring other artists work is both a blessing and a curse. It is very easy to get caught up in negative thoughts while comparing oneself to others. Some days I just don't feel very secure in my abilities. These are the days when it's best not to venture off to someone else's gallery. Does this feeling ever go away? Wishing that we were better?
Currently I'm painting Christmas ornaments on canvas - mini canvases, actually: 2.75 inches in diameter. I have several that keep with my ever growing tree theme: pine cones, bird nests, tree branches,etc.
