Changes, Changes, Changes................................

As we all know life is forever changing.  Well, mine is anyway!
Some changes just sort of happen, others take a decision to make that certain change, and some are easier than others.
For several reasons, I have decided to close my studio on ArtFire.

And will be focusing more on my shops on https://handmadeartists.com/.  I just don't have enough time in my day anymore to be involved in two different venues.  Taking care of a 12 1/2yr old and a 2 1/2 yr old while my daughter works just takes up too much of my time.

I think that Andrew & Kimberly, creators of  http://handmadeartists.com/forum/ and https://handmadeartists.com/ are so dedicated to us artisans and getting us promoted, and put in so many hours doing so, that I would much rather put my efforts into helping support them.

I may not get as much done as I would really like to - but I would much rather have what I do get done go more towards helping promote these wonderful venues than to continue spreading it out.

Come by and see me at https://handmadeartists.com/shop/lisianblue where I have my hand knit and hand crocheted hats, scarves, wash clothes, dish clothes, baby bibs, booties, and more, like these Hand Knit Lavender Blue Fingerless Gloves..
or https://handmadeartists.com/shop/reflections where I have my stained glass, hand painted glass, and glass art pendants. One of my favorites, my blue Art Nouveau Hand Painted Floral Bottle.

And oh yeah, my daughter got a job! YAY!  which also means a bit more of a routine around here!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a grand day!

Oh Yes, those comments are moderated, but I love hearing from you.
