Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter… How do we keep up? We’ll look at some of the main channels in the Social Media world and how they can help connect your shop with potential customers. Then we’ll offer tips on choosing the right one(s) for you. Learn how to share photos, videos and stories, and how to make a plan for your shop’s social engagement that won’t overtake the rest of your life!
Note: Etsy U workshop participants will receive a “check in” link to provide an email address and the name of their Etsy shop. That’s actually how I’ll get credit for teaching the classes! Etsy states that it will not share personal information with unrelated third parties for marketing purposes.
1.) Last week, I was delighted to be a guest presenter for young creatives at Camp Conroy, sponsored by the Pat Conroy Literary Center. It was my first time doing a craft workshop VIRTUALLY. We made found poem collages, like the sample I’m holding above. If you need a fun literary art project this summer, feel free to click the link under the picture and you can enjoy a mini tour of my studio, and the lesson I made for the campers, start to finish! :0)
2.) My Etsy shop will closed for a little summer break June 26 – July 2. If you send me a message through Etsy, I’ll try to respond in a timely-ish manner! (My physical studio is still closed for the time being.)
Here’s to good books, good poems, and soul-nourishing art. Stay safe and well, and see you soon!

Happy February! Hours are a bit limited this month – writing deadlines, an author/poet school visit, and catching up on Etsy orders! If you’re in Beaufort, DO come downtown for First Friday on the 7th from 5-8 pm. :0)
Many thanks to all who kept my shop humming for Art Walk on October 26 and First Friday on November 1! I appreciate the conversation, the encouragement, and of course – the $upport!
Special thanks to Anne Glaze for lending a hand for Art Walk, and for artsyletters regular Kim Poovey for all the help on First Friday.

(*UPDATE*: 7-15: well, now I’ve gone and fractured a bone in my ankle. Not sure when I can resume regular hikes up the stairs & regular hours, but I hope soon!! Thanks. See above for latest! )
(UPDATE: The studio will be closed July 11 & 12 as I will be traveling out of town for a funeral. We’ll be open several days during Water Festival – look for the sign out front. Thanks!)
Happy JULY! I’m busy in the studio & will open this month for FIRST FRIDAY, July 5, 5-8 p.m. Then, hours will be on the flexible side, with some extra open days during WATER FESTIVAL! :0) See you soon!
