Today will also be the day where I will officially release my blog to the rest of the Etsy community. I'd love it if you added me! :)
Happy shopping/selling, my dear Etsians!

This weekend will be my last few days of spring break. It's been wonderful having the opportunity to relax a little before going back to loads of studying and projects galore. Earlier in the week I flew back to Illinois to visit family, see Prince (my English Springer Spaniel) and Floppy (my rabbit who we've had for 6 years and do not yet know the gender of). I arrived back in Arizona late Tuesday night and had intentions of catching up on school work throughout the rest of the week, but I instead sat around, twiddeled my thumbs and simply did nothing other than create a shop on http://www.etsy.com/. I've been wanting to do this for ages, but I was hesitating because of the listing fees associated with the site. It's only $00.20 per item, but as a broke college student, money is tight and I didn't feel as though trying to sell some of my crafts for a few dollars seemed like a good investment.
Oh well, I opened a shop anyway and posted some items as well as talked with a few other members in the forums! They have a wonderful community and everyone I met was friendly and helpful. I felt quite welcome! :)
Please check out my BRAND NEW etsy shop at: http://shoebox21.etsy.com/.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi since it's been a while. Unfortunately I haven't had any time to work on Shoebox21 Designs. Let's hope I find some time here and there. I also wanted to share with you some of the work I've been doing in class. These drawings were scanned in from my original work drawn using Prismacolor markers. Enjoy!

Hello! This whole week has been absolutely freezing here in Illinois. The current temperature is -10 degrees (NOT including the windchill!). It's been snowing quite a lot as well and nearly 10 inches are covering the ground. I figure: If it's going to be cold, at least it should snow! I'm happy that I don't have to do much around here. It's much more pleasant looking out at the snow from a comfortable home than being anywhere else.
In other news, I've been making great strides with my business, Shoebox21 Designs. Since I'm officially starting it up again, I've been busy setting up a business account with my bank, promoting some of my items on other sites (i.e. Crobbies, ShopHandmade), and still working on my own site as well. It's coming along slowly but surely. I'm hoping that I'll have most of everything completed before school begins. I hope to list my designs on Etsy as well, but I'm a little hesitant since there's a listing fee (and unfortunately, money doesn't grow on trees).

Now I'm currently visiting family in Illinois. It's wonderful seeing my parents. My mom also loves to craft, so I'm sure that we'll be doing lots of it for the next two weeks!
