Good News!: Tim Adams and Muse's Corner

Couple of fun updates for you today! First, my Jenny’s Deluxe photo was selected as one of Tim Adam’s Etsy Top 10 this week! I talked about Tim and his helpfulness in this post. I decided against the whole Twitter thing right now but his other tips have been very helpful. Out of the gazillion things on Etsy, I was thrilled to be selected in his top 10 for the week. It’s already driven extra traffic to my Etsy store and here to my blog and it hasn’t even been posted on Tim’s blog yet, just his Twitter page and in this forum thread (page 15, I’m Number 5). Becky from Harriett’s Haven let me know I was there. She was one of the first to purchase a couple of my car photos on Etsy. Thanks, Becky!

In other news, I’m placing some of my photography in a new art/fine craft gallery opening up here in town soon called Muse’s Corner. The store is in an ideal location, and I lucked into a choice spot! Take a look at the photos of the space on their blog and near the bottom of the post you’ll see interior shots. I have the space directly over the fireplace, including the mantel. Pretty cool, huh? I’m taking my work over there this afternoon. For now, I’m just doing my photos that I’ve mounted on wood boxes, like I showed you guys here. They are easy to hang and light weight, plus I can group the smaller 6 x 6’s on the mantle. I've done them in 6 x 6, 8 x 8, 10 x 10, 8 x 10 and 11 x 14. If I do any jewelry there, it will just be my glass tile photo pendants to complement the photography. I like to keep a very close watch on my lampwork pieces. :-) The store is scheduled to open July 25, but I’ll miss the opening due to a conference I have to attend for work (darn, in NYC…can you tell I’m crushed? ;-) Once the store’s fully stocked, I’ll take a couple pictures for you! Wish me luck!
