Update #4 and FREEBIE Friday!

**********************************
Two weeks until the end of my CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN on Indiegogo and 11 FUNDERS!
I am so amazed by the generosity and love that you all have showed me. 
And I will put every cent at good profit! :)
THANK YOU!
**********************************
 So, what are the news for the last two weeks?

1) I am still unemployed... It's not easy to find a job in Italy lately. I thought that with European Elections something would have changed, but it looks like it's going to be a real mess... I have sent Curricola everywhere, but no answers yet.
If you or someone you know are in need of translations (Italian to English/English to Italian), please, consider me!! :) I can also translate from Spanish. :)

2) Hubby is under medical treatment for his heart issue. In 40 days we'll know if he needs Electrical Cardioversion under general anaesthesia. I hope this will resolve the problem. The only positive thing is that because he is unemployed he doesn't have to pay for checkups and therapy. :)

3) I have added more items to my ETSY SHOP.
Had some sales, but I hope they will increase. :)

Check them out.

This week I'm posting a couple of fabric colored buttons in .PNG format (transparent background). Size is 3x3 inches and you can resize them at your will.

Have a great weekend!

  2. So sorry to hear about your unemployment and your husbands' health problems. I hope things will get easier for you soon! I read in a previous post about you wanting to put your art on other items. Have you looked into Society6? It costs one dollar to join, and then you can add as many items as you like for free (not pay for every listing as with Etsy). You can choose which products you want your art to appear on, and their quality is really good. Maybe you can try it. You still have to do all the marketing yourself of course, but they frequently have good promotions, so you could buy your own items and sell them at a market. Good luck!!

    1. Thank you, Denthe. I'm already on Society6, but for now I have sold only one piece. Anyway, I'll keep on promoting. :))

  3. I have been in your shoes as one time both hubby and myself were unemployed at the same time and job prospects weren't so good. But you know what? Everything usually turns out in the end-and I know it will for you and your hubby too. You have a good outlook and despite your circumstances are so generous in giving out digital freebies. I do agree with Denthe that you may want to seriously consider Society6 to make some money from your art. Happy PPF and best of luck with everything!
