I have just joined ESBQ Art. It is a website where you show your work in your portfolio and then link to a shop or website you have somewhere so people can buy from you. It is an on-line gallery and I have found it very easy to work. This is my link to my portfolio. Here is a quote from their site:

I have signed up for the $89 per year membership and I believe it is going to be great for me. I have been looking for an "art site" for awhile, as my work is priced above most craft and is more fine craft and art than I find most sites offer. What I am wondering is if any of you quillers out there might be interested. Right now I am in the wildlife and animal art gallery, which is ok. But I would love to have a quilling gallery on the site. In order for them to consider a new category there must be three quillers with a significant body of work. Anybody out there? Please sign up if you are interested and maybe we can get a quilling gallery going.
Here are a few of my recent custom orders. The first is a Business Card which I did something fancy cutting with and added to the mat on my Monarch Butterfly. I made two of these as gifts for a new business grand opening. Really cool idea.
These three custom keepsake wedding invitations were entirely different from what I usually see. And that is great because it means I get to be creative. And that is what it's all about.
Well, that's it for today. The sun is out and I keep trying to work outside. But the wind is blowing and its cold. Just looks like spring. Supposed to be in the 60's this week.
So check out the website: EBSQ Art. Even if you aren't interested in joining, it is a wonderful site to check out some really beautiful work from artists, craftspeople, and photographers. Great site.
Take Time to Enjoy the Little Things.
And right now the flowers are starting to bloom, so stop and smell the flowers.
