Fine Art by Robin Maria Pedrero

Robin is one of my favorite artists!  I love how she uses color to capture life and nature!  Her ablility to use color definitely makes her work stand out. The use of relationships, stories and mystery in her work, entices viewers.  Robin's art, indeed, is original.  Her pieces are unique;  they are one of a kind.  From her original work, Robin makes prints and limited edition giclees.

In her ETSY shop, RobinMariaPedrero, you will find Robin's prints and art on products.  What are art on products?  They are fine art bags and accessories, mugs, and cards.  Occasionally, you will find her original art pieces too!

My favorite piece of art that Robin has created is Grazing Beneath a Garnet Sky.  I have this print and I also have one of Robin's newest accessories, a  Pouch Key Ring, that uses this piece of art.

Her Good Vibes print, is uplifting and cheerful - aren't the falling leaves, ascending foliage and bird rising above towards the sun simply breathtaking.

And then we also have Breath of Cooler Air.  What a delightful piece to remind of us of the cooler air and changing colors of fall.

And what has helped Robin be successful with her online business?  Robin's advice is to work with ETSY teams, be kind to one another, help each other grow and learn the business of online sales.  These things have helped Robin tremendously in becoming a successful Etsian.

Today's Quote
Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures. ~Thomas de Quincey

Cherry Pie

After sewing this apron and making this treasury, I truly believe I need to run to the grocery store and buy the ingredients to make a cherry pie!  I can smell it!  I can taste it!  What a wonderful addition it will be to the evening meal!

My latest product addition for my ETSY store, RitasCreationsOnETSY, is aprons for girls.  I constructed this one with a Cherry Themed Tutti Frutti fabric.  There are so many fun designs in this fabric line and you will be seeing more in the near future.  Want Ice Cream Cones - there is one in my shop at the moment!

How do you like my new model?  I'm going to have to name her so if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.  Some how even having a mannequin without a name is just too impersonal - LOL!

So, here's one of my new aprons... I make these in 3 different sizes for girls - 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8.

And, I also made this "Let's Bake a Cherry Pie" treasury - (you can navigate to everyone's store featured here by clicking on the treasury link).

Thanks for stopping by....  and please drop by later this evening for a piece of cherry pie and some coffee!

Blue Birds

It's time for a post again, albeit a very short one!

A few weeks ago I was playing with my Copic Markers and the "Tail Feathers" stamp set from The Angel Company.  These birdies are so adorable and just beg to be stamped and colored!  I'm still learning how to use these addictive Copics so there is a lots of room for improvement.  That being said, here is one of the images that I completed:

Want to see more Blue Birds?  Well, here's an ETSY Treasury full of them....

Thanks for stopping by...

Did You Know??

Now that the 2010 Craft Show Season is over and I'm finally recovering from the Post-Craft-Show-Syndrome, I have found some time to catch up and dig into a number of things that I've been wanting to do with my ETSY Store, Twitter, Facebook, and blog.  And what I'm finding out is just amazing...

So, did  you know....

1.  If you have 25 or more followers on Facebook, you can easily direct someone to your page by setting a username for it rather than copying all of those letters/numbers in the url.  The only caveat is you can only set it once.   Here's the link to accomplish that,

2.  You can track the ETSY search words that buyers are using to get to your listings in Google Analytics.  Here's how.... (see item 2)

3.  TweetDeck,, is a personal real-time browser that shows you activity in Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and more.  It is a quick, easy, single view of your key social-media resources and lists.   Thanks Robin!!
