Loving Artfire

ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade
After months of debating I finally gave artfire a try. Artfire is a handmade shopping community quite similar to Etsy. While I like etsy and all of my customer base is there, I really have fallen in love with Artfire. I really like that I don't have to pay transaction fees, and having a sale is a easy as checking a box. My favorite thing of all is that I can create my listing on 1 page. There aren't several pages to go through. Right now we are on the basic plan, which has limited features, but is free for listing and trans fees. I would love to eventually move my entire clientelle to Artfire and upgrade to pro ($16 a month, but still no additional listing or trans fees) because the features are just awesome there. In the meantime I am just trying to put more focus on my artfire shop and waiting for growth. If you have been thinking of trying it out, you should, it's free for goodness sake!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
