Tree Art Large Prints Moving...

When Etsy made the changes they did in October
it became a waste of time and money to renew

The way things are set up there...you pay the listing fee
and the item is listed for four months.

Before the changes I had scheduled renews, on my oldest items, daily.

Since the changes...I don't renew anything...except in cases
where the number of items has sold out and I want to offer more.

Anyway....NOW my items are gradually beginning to 'expire'
and I have to decide whether or not to renew them...and, in many cases,
I've decided to just let them go.

I LOVE the Large Fantasy Forest Tree and Dragonfly Art prints so much...
they are so Beautiful as a large print...
I've decided to make my
the New Home for my Large Tree Art Prints...
except for my 'Everlast' prints.
I'm varying the sizes slightly...as they began as Limited Edition prints
and are now 'Open Edition' Large Prints.
And the price is lower there...as well.

Rustic Goth Blog

A New Year...A New Blog!

But, I'm not giving up this one....for me, it's almost like a 'diary'
of the last five years of my life.

The biggest reason for the New Blog...
over on WordPress
is that I want to limit the posts to
Rustic Goth related information Only.
Since I didn't start this blog exclusive to Rustic Goth...
I tended to post all kinds of information here.

The thing I especially like about WordPress is
and I can include a single post into more than one category.

There are things I do like about Blogger that aren't available,
as far as I can tell,
on WordPress.
I can't figure out how to put in the little 'adverts' I have in the
sidebar of this blog.

Most of the information I am posting on my new
Rustic Goth Blog
are exclusive Rustic Goth posts.
I'm also having giveaways...for new followers who leave comments
on a periodic basic.

My first giveaway was a printable 2013 Alice in Wonderland calendar.

I'll be doing another giveaway the beginning of February...
if you are only interested in Rustic Goth 'news'
head on over to my Wordpress Rustic Goth Blog
and follow me....
I 'think' you'll get an update of some kind
each time I post.

A blog for every shop...

Well...not really....
I Do have a new Blog
for Rustic Goth.

It's still in the very early stages...I think only one or two posts...
I wanted more a a 'Business' Blog...so I opted
to do a Rustic Goth Blog on Wordpress...
with most of the updates going there.

Since I've had a couple of non-art related blogs there...
that I rarely update anymore...(just no extra time)...
I'm thinking of doing a blog for
my other Etsy Shop
and one for
my ArtFire Shop
on Wordpress as well.

I've just spent several days redesigning my Rustic Goth website
which still isn't finished...trying to make it a bit more
'mobile device friendly'
though I'm not sure I succeeded in that.

Then...we'll see if I have the time and the energy to

Excited About the New Year

Though I opened a couple of new shops...
on Artfire
And...FairytalezNFantasieZ on Etsy

I also still have to manage my

and my 
Having so many shops at once is a real challenge...and sometimes...
one or more shops gets a bit neglected.
But...I learned a valuable lesson in 2012,
not to put all of one's eggs in one basket...
if it drops...well...you might not eat.

So...my challenge in the first quarter of 2013...is to try to give my three primary shops...

equal time, especially since these are all paid sites...I really need to be 'on top' of each
one of them.

My CMZart Zibbet shop is going to get 're-vamped' and will become my site
for inspirational and motivational quotes and sayings prints.

My Rustic Goth Zibbet shop...well, it is going to become the home of
my Etsy retired prints.

I'm a little 'OCD' about the number of items I keep in each shop...and to prevent my shops
from getting too unwieldy...I periodically retire some of my older prints.

Anyway....I am excited about this new year...and I'm also in the process of putting together
brand new blogs, for each of my shops....
I'll tell you more in my next post.
