I have to admit that I have been on a little hiatus lately. Trying to create for my next show in June, has turned my creative focuses to art rather than writing for now at least. Where I used to post several times a month, it seems as if I have no ink in the well lately. But my phone makes a different noise when I get another follower who has found me for one reason or another and for some reason even though I haven’t written for a while, people are finding me and reading my blog. And though it is a low number for many, I am kind of blown away to have 2,222 followers as of tonight. It is crazy to think that I just wanted a place to store my thoughts and suddenly some friends, but mostly strangers are reading my ramblings for some weirdly encouraging reason.
While driving in the car with my husband last week, my phone made that noise about seven times. I had to tell him what it was. I told him I had over 2,000 followers and he said… “You know, if just half of those people would buy just one of your cards a month regularly, you would never have to worry about working for someone else ever again. We laughed. But it made me think. How could I get everyone LIKING my cards to actually take the time to buy one?
So I thought why not just put that out there? I am in Reminisce locally and have a large selection there. But if you don’t live locally, I have a shop on etsy that I keep adding to daily. Please check my shop out the next time you need a card! Every card is just $3. At the price of cards these days, you can’t beat that price. So when you get a chance browse around, and share with a friend…. Mother’s Day is coming up… Next Father’s Day… and if you don’t see what you are looking for, private message me.
Here is my Etsy Shop link:
Oh yeah and when I make a sale on Etsy my phone make a different noise. It sounds like a cash register ringing!
Thank you for supporting my dream!

Hi Diane, I know it’s been three years since I have written on my site (40YearWanderer) and probably since you and I connected too, but wanted to stop by your site now that I’m “back”. I reread one of your lovely comments on mine from years ago. ❤️Thank you. I am writing again – health issues are better and I feel like I’m supposed to share again. 🙂 Anyway, just wanted you to know I love your art … and was so glad to “catch up with you again”. God bless you.
So glad you’re back & your health is improving. Thank you for checking in. I look forward to your posts!💗
Congratulations! I love your cards but I make my own. Have done for many years. I can personalize them for each person.
