Shop update

Lately, I have been wondering whether it is wise to keep unsold hearted items in my shop. I used to keep the number of items in my shop under 60, preferably at the surrounding of 45 and lately I found myself at 70 something items. The debate which rose clearly stated people who sell a lot have about 100 items in their shops, which also allows for a greater number of items to be found by search engines. I am still not sure which comes first - many items or many sales, but decided I am willing to give it a try for a short while and see if anything moves.

In the meanwhile, I spent some time last week working on a custom order watercolor drawing of two life long friends. Considering I didn't draw anything of the kind for a year if not more, I am quite pleased with the result.

On top of this, and in direct connection to what I wrote above, I decided I need to make a few new series of limited edition cheap Flutterbutts. And so, I spent Saturday making these three colorful feathery tutu fellas. As you can see, they are ready for cooler evenings with a nice scarf and pompom hat. Buy your favorite before he goes away!
