I am always on the look out for ways to promote my art and my business, so you can imagine how excited I was to come across Society 6, an online store front for creatives. This weekend I managed to carved out a little time from my crazy days lately and spent a few hours getting to know the site, preparing my files and uploading the pieces. By the end of the day I was able to create somethings that I feel speaks to the type of art work I love to do as well as my passions in life.
Framed piece at Society 6
Funny thing is I am usually pretty aware of opportunities, trying always to keep my antennas up for new ones. But I must have had my head in the sand with this one because when I mentioned my new discovery to my 17 year old daughter, she gave me that look only a teenager could do and said “Mom I’ve been using that for a while.” Of course I asked her why she didn’t tell me about it, to only be meet with the rolled eyes and the dreaded shoulder shrug that all teens have managed to perfect.
Technology, tanks and totes
The site allows people to order everything from straight prints to framed artwork, as well as cases for all today’s technology gadgets. T-shirts, tanks, hoodies and tote bags, but my favorite item they can create are pillows. Now I walk through my home not looking at the walls, but now my couch has become a new place to hang my artwork. I must admit when I found my new obsession I kept having visions of some HGTV star stumbling across my pillows and using them in their next design redo on cable.
Artwork pillows, my couch’s new best friends
Just when I thought I was getting stagnate and looking for a fresh idea, the universe showed me one. But honestly I think the biggest lesson here is the heck with my antennas, I’m just gonna stalk my daughter’s trends.
