No Time to Paint! No Time to Party!


Cara Mia Bella is only moments away from the Grand Opening celebration...well maybe a little more than moments away!  This month is the tentative schedule for my Etsy Shop's official opening.  Therefore I now have weeks like this one where I did not even pick up the paintbrush.  I am up to my ears in business set up and putting the finishing touches on my product line.  A little too logical for my creative brain to handle, but I'm pushing through the quagmire of mundanity!  


However, not to be one to miss a party, I'll share some of my design ideas for the games I will be making.  These images are going to be made into an Alphabet Card Deck for children with an "On the Farm" theme.  They will also be made into a Memory Card Game for the young ones, as well as Greeting Card sets.


Now its back to business for me.  I'll still be visiting all of my friends over at the Paint Party Friday extravaganza....be sure to visit them too!  Every week there are more and more artists joining in the fun!  Click here to visit the artists and see some inspiring art....

Great idea - those images with their depth and color will be really engaging too!

I hear ya about the Etsy thing. I'm just getting mine into gear after diving into it without any plan or enough paintings to even fill my shop! Use the forums if you have any questions you can't find the answer to, they're awesome!

What a wonderful idea!!! I remember playing memory card games as a child but none as grand as these, what a delight they will be for young and old alike.

Thanks for coming by my paint party I had on Friday and leaving me a comment...it helped me find your blog. You do wonderful work...
Thanks everyone for visiting! You are all such an inspiration to me that I couldn't miss a week of Paint Party! You are the wind beneath my creative wings!

Thanks for the business encouragement, too. I am learning as I go, and sometimes its not a clear and easy path, but what a wonderful thing to work from home and still get to raise my children :) I'm very determined to make my business a reality. Any and all business advice is appreciated!

Wishing you all continued inspiration and creativity!
