inspired by-

Love this swirl sculpture from Pieces..but with an $895 price tag, I reinvented it my way-


on paper of course! It's going to be the new art for the bathroom reno when it's completed! ( I'm working on it.. everything is waiting on ME to finish painting.. ugh ;)

( click picture to enlarge )

Let me know if you'd like one.. I can make it up on 140lb paper with pencil and add it to the shop for $10! ( email me at sarah@sarahswansondesign.com if you do ).

 AND I have to say I'm almost scared to post about my shop.. sad right? I received a snotty comment that implies I post to often about GALLERY WALL. Well SORRY. It's my blog, and my shop, so if I want to promote my own business I think I should be able to with out a backlash. Don't we all promote ourselves and our ideas through our blogs?! Boy was I upset, so ANON, you achieved your goal, and if you're reading this, don't bother visiting again. Sorry, rant over..and to all of you who do support me THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, xoxo S

I LOVE hearing about your shop! Etsy can be super overwhelming so it's helpful to see updates here so I can add to my favorites when something catches my eye! Keep doing what you're doing and don't let the haters get you down. xx

It is incredible that ONE person feels entitled to make such judgements....if 'ANON' doesn't like what she is seeing, she is more than welcome to avoid following your blog. Don't let one person's ignorance and sense of entitlement bring you down. Clearly she has her/his own insecurities and is frankly just envious of your incredible talent and success! Keep it ALL coming...I will never tire of it and look forward to checking in with your blog and ETSY store....big hugs to you!! xo

Well you know you can't please everyone. I do find it strange that someone would feel compelled to take the time to be so negative - what a waste of time and energy. I say, just ignore it and keep carrying on with the good work! Your new artwork is great! xo Sherri

Sarah, just received the two pieces in the mail. Love them :) You know what they say, when ppl leave bad comments, that means you're REALLY MAKING IT! So toast to success and ignore haters.

Kacey @ Shes.No.Martha said...

wow, people are dumb. it's your blog, not the daily newspaper. why do people feel so entitled to share their opinions like that?

ps, LOVE the new piece. Got your piece in the mail the other day and need to frame it!

If someone doesn't like hearing about your shop, they can just stop reading. Shame on them for suggesting you not promote your own business! I personally love seeing your artwork!
