Two new listings on ArtFire - Mini Greyhound and Whippet

I just wanted to quickly point out two new listings on ArtFire from me..... one is for a Mini Greyhound pattern that I created for peyote or brick stitch.The other is for a Whippet pattern that I created for peyote and/or brick stitch. Eventually I hope to list the actual dogs that I stitched up, in some sort of decorative frame or display. I love these dogs and surprisingly, the greyhound seems to be the hot dog on ArtFire right now. I thought for sure it would be a Pomeranian or Chihuahua. Anyway, these two dogs were inspired by my dog, Apple. She is a greyhound mix, black with some white socks, chest, and a white blaze on her face. She is a very striking dog, very tall, and has a very loud bark which intimidates a lot of people. Anyway, I am stitching up the next dog, which happens to be the regular-sized greyhound and am about 2/3 of the way done... will hope to have it on ArtFire within a day or so... And then I move on to a cat that I created and then a Malamute... I am still stewing an Akita in my head as well as a Scotty.... and then of course more cats.... I need to show equal love, as I have two wonderful kitties as well as my 2 dogs.Anyway, I always stitch up my patterns before listing them to make sure they don't look funny when done. I have a few patterns waiting in the line-up for stitching before I can list them. I wish my mom or sister would give bead weaving a shot, so that they could be my stitchers for when I have a backlog. LOL I will be teaching my kids how to use a bead loom. We are starting out small, with one of my paw print designs that is done and just waiting for stitching. Fun days! I wonder who will love it more, my daughter or my son?

I really enjoy the ArtFire community, although I have only sold two items. I think things will be picking up. New people hear about Art Fire every day, and quite a few people are coming over from Etsy, many of whom will be bringing their traffic and will generate more sales. The Staff and fellow shop owners are really helpful, there doesn't seem to be a really stupid question.
