Artsy Findings Store Closing ~ New Things on the Horizon

What is and What was.

We have had the blessing of owning the Artsy Findings store for many years. Click here or go to www.artsyfindings.com then to the header tab above that says Shop.  Times are changing and so is this store . . . it’s an antiquated system they have and we are making changes as well so here we go.  GCD Studios closed their doors a year or so ago and we kept the store running with some of the much wanted ChipArt tools and accessories available.  We also kept in stock older lines by Melody Ross that we had in stock that were so popular.  Well, our inventory is low and we will be closing the store.  So for the next five days we will be having a 50% off sale of everything in the store.  Use coupon code AF2015 when you check out of the store.  ChipArt tools are now hard to find so if you’ve been thinking about it . . . now’s the time.  There are still a few designs left on Amazon but not at this price.  They are still certainly a most popular tool!  The ChipArt shapes are awesome too for albums, projects, decor and more.  Then we have a few scrapbook pieces here.  So take a peek and shop if you’d like.  I will of course be keeping my blog and sharing lots of newness and inspiration.

What is to come?

I’m excited to share that I’ll be focusing more on sharing a message of hope with my art and will soon to be opening an Etsy shoppe.  I’ll be sharing my angels there, more product and lots of new goods.  I’d love for you to stay tuned especially if you aren’t already subscribed.  I’ll also be offering on-line classes and joining the ranks of teaching again after a fight with cancer.  I’m moving forward.  To subscribe feel free to enter your email (just kept by me) where it says “Subscribe” . . . the right hand column.  I’m excited about this move and will be able to move in another direction (although I’ve enjoyed the last several years sharing and teaching with these awesome tools).

Thank You

I want to thank each of you . . . friends, family and customers for the support, care and friendship you’ve shared through the Artsy Findings Shoppe.  I’ve had the blessing of working with charity groups teaching with the tools and doing good in the name of Artsy Findings.  Thank you . . . you have been a huge part in that.  Thank you for seeing us through even a rough patch as I went through treatment.  You have been so good to us and it is with a grateful heart I say thank you so much!  What a lovely adventure this has been. I hope to continue to connect and share with you on the blog.  You are such a gift to me. advertisement copy As always . . . Warmest creative wishes,

    So happy to hear that you are ready to start a new adventure. I pray that means that you are ready to start living happily ever after and have kicked cancer to the curb! Best of luck in your new venture. You are a beautiful testament to a life well lived!

    You are the one I would like to thank. You have been so instrumental and encouraging helping others, even during your most difficult fight with cancer. You are so talented and have taught me so much. You are such a blessing to me!!
