    Ok, heres a link for some of the new stuff I am doing. These are my first pieces. Now I've never been much into primitive arts or folk art, but it's growing on me.
    Take a look, tell what you think (or prephapes you don't like folk art at all and hate it).
    Alright heres the disclaimer. I have these posted on my ebay auction page, and I only want you to take a look, I'm not asking ayone to buy anything, ===I don't want your money== only your opinions, so far all I've got in the way of opinion is my husband(hates folk art, not much help), my mother(of course she'd love them), and my friend(who doesn't like to hurt anyones feelings). So maybe they stink and I have no talent. Maybe should quit, or maybe I need lessons and just might get better.

    (theres a snowman picture which I did change a little it looks much better but ebay won't allow to change pictures when they are hosting the picture).

    Thanks Saggy!

    Ik, I only asked. I won't again, just thought I'd share something of myself. I guess not though.

    My opinion is that you have some neat stuff and show a lot of talent and creativity.
    I go to a LOT of craft shows, am going to one tomorrow. Have not seen anything like these ideas in OK or AR.
    Selling online can be a very hard thing sometimes. A lot depends on time of year
    and who is looking for what. Looks like you
    are doing a good job with descriptive titles.

    Thank you Karen, I appreciate it. Going to keep at it. Whatever I can't sell on line I am going to go to a few craft shows next summer, when I have a lot more. I think I can do pretty good, so far i haven't stuff like this here either.

    Katie, you've done a wonderful job. I used to work for a woman that had several craft booths in little malls, she had lots of the primitive art, yours looks better than several of the pieces I've seen. But I don't call painting a craft, I see it more of art work. Congrats on selling a piece also! I've thought of selling on E-Bay, but I'm a big chicken, so my hat's off to you!
    Sue ;)

    Oh Sue, nothing scary about it. Just list, costs only $.30 for each listing, not much of an investment if your not listing a lot of stuff. Then a small percentage fianl value fee. They pay, I wouldn't take checks, you ship. Nothing to it. If your already registered, thats half the battle right there.
