All Art Licensing, Product templates for your art

Check out Jeannette Smith's Art Licensing blog. There is vital info for artists interested in licensing their work. She also has templates for sale for placing art on mock-up products..and the explanation to do it professionally. I'm saving the info to buy some as soon as I have disposable cash.

Monetizing your blog

I've been using Google ads for years now, and am nearly at the  $100.00 mark to be paid for painless advertising. I just discovered the Amazon Associates. I hope it isn't too cumbersome, but I added it to see how it goes. There is also a YouTube monetizing app, but I'm trying not to overdo it.

It may be worth your time as a blogger to add some of these apps. Check it out in the dashboard section of blogger.

Smart Artist Career Blog

Check out The Smart Artist Career Blog. I enjoyed the article about the value of "piles" for a creative mind.
During the Christmas and holiday season my normal piles seem to multiply like the Northern VA snow piles right now. Yesterday we were all out enjoying the snow in one form or another. My son and the dog had fun, my husband and I shoveled, and I made a snow angel, my daughter attempted sledding with a friend, but the snow was too deep!

Having a storm like this brings time to stay indoors and rest, catch up and be together with family. It has been a joy for us. The roads are just now beginning to be passable in many areas. My husband ventured out yesterday in the Jeep, due to being stir crazy, and returned unscathed.

I'm thrilled to be having a White Christmas for the first time in years.
