Car Shopping Anyone?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

Well, still staying busy. Worked at the gallery today, pretty quiet, made a couple of small sales, hoping for more this week for sure. Anyway, just a note to you all out there with online shops. The scammers are at it again. I got an e-mail from some one on my Zibbet store, he was inquiring about one of my paintings. He requested I send him a money request and from there it got crazy. The good news is I learned how to do that. I had never done a request for payment in Paypal, so I learned something that will most certainly come in handy in the future! Very cool, guess that is how people sell on Facebook and other such sites, good to know. Anyway, back to my buddy, he starts with how much he loves the painting. Then how he is a collector, and is a sailor. From there, it is how he is at sea, and if he sends me extra money, will I pay for the storage for this painting. I check out the address for shipping, it is UCLA, yeah, the university. Whatever, I took back the money request and sent him an e-mail declining his offer to purchase. So, just a note to be wary, they are up to getting money from every venue possible. Spread the word, and keep your heads clear.

As for the lottery, tonight is a drawing, and I am certain to be winning soon. So this evening, I spent going online and picking out the cars, yes plural, I am going to buy, and shopped for one for my youngest as well. The oldest child of mine I think is good for vehicles, she may need some down payment for a home or business. Anyway, the cars are picked, down to the colors and extras. Now it is time for me to decide where I want to live, coastal, I am pretty sure, and need to be close to a good gallery for me as well. If anyone has any pointers, would love to hear them. Give me an idea, where you think my art would do well. I mean it is selling here, and this is no big city! Would love to hear your thoughts!

Been working on some new art, hopefully this weekend while I am off, I can spend some time downloading everything to give you some more good art. Hoping your New Year is off to a great start. I think this is going to be a great year, for me for sure. I do hope it is even greater for you! Sending out my love to you all, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Let’s Play Catch The Clock!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 13, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well this should have been done hours ago. It seems that my computer or Firefox has been having difficulty this morning. And a simple task like writing a sentence is taking minutes to load! So, I rebooted and am hoping that solves the problem. Happy Monday to you and hope your week started out as great as you wished it would be, really hope it was better. I know most people do not look forward to Mondays. Well for me today is beat the clock Monday and only the beginning of beat the clock week. I have been so busy trying to do so many things since I got my car out of the shop, that now I am severely behind on catching up on my art, my shops, my blogs and my job search. So, this week I intend on doing my all to make up for lost time. Funny how my computer had an entirely different agenda than me! I was doing some searching this morning and found a site called eHow, pretty cool. It seems you can put a profile on there and watch videos and read how to’s on all kinds of things.

Now, if you are more computer savvy than I bear with me. I was really excited about it. The diversity of things you can get information about is staggering. It will take me a minute to absorb it all. So, technically now I have even more things to do than first anticipated. I wonder how long I can go without sleep? I need those hours to catch up. For those of you unfamiliar with this site, check it out, really amazing how many things you can learn about. They have everything from how to keep getting bitten by mosquitoes to digital filming techniques and a whole gamut of subjects in between and all around. So, if you have an interest or several interests that you are curious about, check them out. You can build a profile and make friends and I am hoping they will also, help me figure out more about it. For me other than a great way to fill my head with trivia that interests me, I think it will be a great way to network as well. The first person to add me has over 2000 friends on her page. I am thinking it is a pretty big site.

Now that I have that off my chest it is off to the drawing board for me. Yesterday was all about doing housework and cooking and baking. Today is all about doing artwork, blogging and tweeting and all the stuff required for me to maintain and grow my online business. I added some new prints to my shops yesterday and will be adding some more today, for anyone interested in checking it out. I also, added something new to my Zazzle store. So, eBay, ETSY, Artfire, Zibbet and Zazzle have new items for you to see. Hoping you enjoy them and your day, all my love to you, diana

PS: I am adding my eHow link, if you would like to check it out too!!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Almost Friday, A Sale Plus Updates On A Few Other Things!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 22, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, I am so very happy it is almost Friday. Thrilled that the weekend is finally right at the door and ready to enjoy it. I am sure that seems weird, since I am not working outside the home. But, even with staying home the weekends always feel different than the other days. Not sure what it is, I don’t go out, nothing like that, but the days feel more fun to me. Must be a psychological thing, but it is true. Checked on the lottery last night now winner yet. So, tomorrow, I will be getting my picks for the next week, wish me lots of luck, need it ( not that you don’t, but I would do it for you)!Wishing you happy thoughts now, just for topping in.

I am working on a painting right now, no clues it will have to be a surprise this time. It just feels good to be playing with my paints again. I am feeling the crochet or sewing bug though, just not sure what I want to make. Maybe, I should replace the black lace vintage style gloves I sold earlier this week! That could be a good idea. Oh, and guess what, had another sale last night, but the best news is this one was on my Artfire account! This is the first sale in that store, all the others so far have been in ETSY. Now, if that will only get that account jump started I would be so very happy! Then, I just need to get my Zibbet account going, that is the store with the most hits, and I would be thrilled to see it take off as well. Wow, so keep your fingers crossed for me the weekend is here! I have high hopes for a profitable weekend!

Well, that is the latest on the most exciting news. I did get an e-mail back from AskDoctors about my little experience. Their advice to take a pregnancy test and get an appointment with a doctor. So, being broke really is the worst part about me. I do not have money for a pregnancy test and definitely do I have hundreds of dollars to spend at a doctor. So, for now, I will grin and bear it. Pray hard, and hope with a hope beyond hope, that I will stay healthy and all will be good! Love to you all, hoping your Thursday is as happy as you are, diana

Strange New Terms Makes A Curious Brain

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 20, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, I was watching something new to me on TV last night. It is a show about sex. There were several new terms for totally new diagnoses on there the one that stands out is sexual anorexic. Now according to this program a sexual anorexic is some one who denies themselves and their partner sex, partly out of controlling and partly because of child issues with the parent of the opposite sex. It was a fascinating show for me, just because I learned so many new things. For those of you who don’t follow, I do love to learn all the time. I crave  educating myself. Any way enough of that, I did finish the final bull dog picture I was working on yesterday, and as promised it is posted here for you to see. Tomorrow I will post all three together and you can vote for your favorite. This is more serious bull dog than the earlier ones, just trying to mix them up a little bit.

Well, internet sales is slowing starting to move. NOthing crazy or rapid, but there have been a couple of orders in the last week or two. So far the sales have been on my ETSY account, nothing yet on my Artfire or my Zibbet account. I am hoping they start moving as well. The book I told you about is going well, in chapter four now, this is when it is required of me to start taking action. Since that has already been going on, I am waiting to read something that I have not done yet. Very good. Today is filled with some house work, putting away the pencils and markers and dragging out whatever project makes me happy. I do have some cabbage to cook and a few other things. But, right now I want some breakfast and a shower, just in reverse!

My therapy loving friends are giving me  a break right now. The peace and quiet has been wonderful! It has also been nice to be able to catch up with other friends, very nice. Hoping your week is off to a smooth, if not fun start, mine is going well. Hoping to end the week with a bunch of sales, Yay! A girl has to have her dreams you know. It is a good dream and I am thinking, it is a premonition! Wink! So go and have a great day, hope you love the picture or pictures the last couple of days. All my love as always, diana

Bull Dog Picture And Today’s Update!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well good day to you! I finished a second drawing of a bull dog, posted here. Hope you like it, would love to hear back from you. I made a sale last night on my ETSY account. Some black lacy fingerless vintage style gloves. They are so adorable! Any way no new sales on my Christmas in July promo on my Artfire and ZIbbet accounts. But lots of hits on Zibbet for sure, haven’t figured how to track it yet on the other two sites. But, I will keep trying to figure it out. The book I am reading about marketing on Facebook, is very helpful in finding some of these things. I am really starting to enjoy it. Today I am finally starting chapter four, where it gets in depth into focusing on sales and promotion. I am very excited.

Helped a friend find a baby sitter last night and another start her baby sitting business at home. So last night was a busy night for me. I am happy. Let me know what you think of the two  bull dog pictures already posted. Would love to get feedback from you. It seems that between reading, drawing and creating and setting up all these internet connections, my days are flying by for sure. I can’t believe it is so late already.Some days just seem to fly. Got a question for you. Why is it time seems so far away looking forward, but when you look back it seems like 5 minutes ago? Time is definitely relative. If you get a chance check out my Christmas sales on Artfire and Zibbet, let me know what you think. Would love to hear your thoughts. My Monday started out just as busy and I am hoping the week is too, or even busier. Haven’t decided whether the next bull dog picture will be a drawing or a painting. I am sure you will be just as surprised as me when it is done.

Hope your week started out with a bang as well, in a good way of course. Have lots to do, so I got to run. Have a wink and a smile on me. All my love as usual, diana

Virtual Sale! Fun Bulldog, And Other Updates!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 18, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, the weekend is almost over. I have been busy this morning getting sales set up in a couple of my stores. I am unable to set up a coupon on my ETSY, so if you have an account there, I will post my site, just e-mail me and I will adjust any p[rices to any items you wish to order and you can get the same deals there as in my Artfire, and Zibbet account. Everyone is busy doing their Christmas in July sales events and I am definitely not going to do my best. It is my first time, so wish me luck and please check out any one of my shops, I would really love to get any feedback I can. Hoping your weekend has been as exciting and exhilarating as mine! If not get busy, time is short!

I did finish one bulldog pup picture for the calender one of my business groups is doing I will post it with this blog. I do plan to make at least one more, maybe two, in different styles as well, just to add variety to their choices. When I am done, I might give you all a vote to see which one you would prefer in a calender so I can add that to my partners, and let them know what you think. It is a promo for a charity and we really want it to do well. Once I am finished with the work I will also post you any information on the charity in case you wish to participate, We welcome any help you can offer! I did check my lottery last night and no wins yet, but there is still Tuesday and Wednesday coming up. I know this week, the money would be so helpful. This is one of those weeks or months really, where there just isn’t enough money to make the bills, and not even groceries or gas! Big smile, love to see the way this works out! It will definitely be interesting, I will be sure to let you know how that works out too! Faith is a real bugger, you know?

If at all possible with all I have going on, thinking about running a yard sale of sorts maybe next weekend. More like an art and crafts sale with a small amount of used stuff, just for good measure! We will see, money is all around, I just have to grab at the right time! Well, enough of my silliness for now, got to get back to work. You never know, I might be really busy this week and I need to be ready, have a lot of work to finish off so I can be ready! All my love to you, and truly hope you have a spectacular Sunday afternoon and evening, diana
