Feature Friday: Social Network Media Blast!

Okay, I don't know who named "Social Network Media Blast" but it sounds to me like it should be pronounced the same was "Brawndo" is in the movie "Idiocracy."  In my head, I say it like I'm mocking a Mountain Dew commercial or a local cheesy car salesman.

However, it isn't a bad idea.  In my Etsy Entrepreneurs team, someone posted that we should all add one thing from our shops to a list on Thursday, and then, throughout the day on Friday, Twitter, Facebook, blog, etc. about everything else on the list.  Because if you have thirty other people putting your stuff out there, it's going to get noticed in new circles.  I have to admit, in spite of the silly name, it's a brilliant idea.

Since there are so many things on the list, I'm tweeting most of it, and some that I like I will be sharing from my Cursiveart FB page, but there are a few things I really LOVE on that list.  So, I'm sharing these here.

First is this mug from CocoMasonDesigns.  I really love the aqua blue.  It's the kind of mug you'd drink coffee out of only on a Saturday morning, when you're feeling really relaxed and at peace.  Also, keep an eye out for my interview with Carey of CMD, coming in a few weeks.

Next, there is this painting, from  RKArtStudio,  It's got a very dark mood and I love it.  It reminds me a bit of being a kid and exploring and everything seeming so giant.  I love the way the trees seem like they're starting to bend overhead.

This last one would just be plain useful.  I would wear this fun paisley apron by ChrissysCreation whenever I'm making prints.  It would probably be covered in ink in no time.  The downside is, while I would use the pockets, I would also forget I put things in them, and then spend twenty minutes searching my studio for something that is on my person.  But I would look cute doing it!

Okay, that's it for my Social Network Media Blast! for today.  I doubt I'll do it every Friday, partly because it's time-consuming and partly because I'm lazy.  However, it's a fun experiment in the meantime and I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.  

Have a great weekend and keep an eye out on Monday for my interview with a new artist!
