Christmas Treats

Christmas Treats

Christmas shopping is a bore. Every year it’s the same routine, you make a list then start shopping. Personally, I delay until December, sometimes even mid-December. Then the race is on! I know, I know…you’re supposed to shop shopping right after Thanksgiving. As if!

Some people have already started shopping. If that’s you then you may want to consider a neat online website called RedBubble. It’s a service that allows artists to sell their artwork and images on various goods — mugs, shirts, cards, and art prints. There’s a lot of wonderful original art on the site, unique designs you won’t find anywhere else.

I’ve wanted to license my artwork for products for a long time. I was shy to do it…well, maybe shy isn’t the quite the right word. Lacking confidence that the things would sell would be the better way to put it. But you know what? When I finally uploaded some of my artwork images they looked pretty good on tote bags, travel mugs, and laptop skins.

You can be a patron of the arts for the price of a greeting card. Pretty cool, huh? I hope you’ll visit my RedBubble store (www.redbubble.com/people/slwaller) and check out the designs. Who knows, you might get all your shopping done in November this year!
