Great trading cards.  I see you've been having fun.

Wendy, Generally no I do not.   I create for the pleasure of it. I have at times sold jewelry that I make but it became to much of I have to make to sell and it took a lot of the enjoyment out of it for me.For example if I knew I had a show coming up I would be creating like crazy to make enough to have a good amount to bring. People would always want pieces but maybe in a different color ( I don't really like making made to order items but I always feel that I  compelled to oblige)  it really takes the enjoyment out of it for me. I love to create but I hate being a sales person! Years ago I used to craft and paint handmade wood items and sell them but like I said I hated that part of it. As for the Artist trading cards you see above ,I love to trade with other Artist. I find it very rewarding to share art with other artist's and I enjoy having my collection of miniature  art from all over the world. Any time you would like a trade I'm up for it!
