Yo... Ya Wanna Buy A Bookmark??

Pin It
In the interim months when I wasn't painting I had to find some other, less exhausting, way of "letting the Art out". I discovered that I loved just allowing my mind to create pen & ink drawings that were pleasing to the eye. I actually found this soothing and I could put it away whenever I was too tired. If you want to see any of the photos close up, just click on them to enlarge.

I've ended up with twenty two bookmarks that are ready to go up in Etsy. I also made up a few word cards, like "believe" and "thank you". Now all I have to do is get a laminator an I'm off to the races! What fun, I've always wanted a laminator, do you wonder whether I'll be laminating everything that stands still? I should probably stop at the paper money. lol.

I added some color to these next bookmarks, as they seemed a little boring as just black & white images. I've looked around Etsy and it seems that hand drawn bookmarks range from a measly $1.50 to an exorbitant $19.99. The general range, though, if one eliminates the ends of the bell curve is between $3 and $6. I was thinking $4. What do you think? They're on very good quality thick watercolor paper and all hand penned. All original pieces of art. Am I under pricing myself? I know that's the easiest way to have NOONE purchase you. Visitors think...
"Well, if she doesn't even value her work, why should I?"

I was thinking that these two cards above might make nice sets. I may see what the cost is to print these up in batches of half a dozen. Would you buy them? Would you want them to be all the same or all different? I welcome (and totally covet) all comments. Oh, and if you want a bookmark just speak up and I'll set it aside for you. I also take requests, just put a dollar in the tip jar on the piano... hehehe.

Officially...
       
I'll see you lovely revelers in the New Year. Many blessings and wishes for Peace in 2012.
Best,
