I’ve been working a lot on my CafePress site lately. I was tinkering with the settings and found this box I could check to have an e-mail sent whenever I make a sale! I have been working on a series based on line drawings of Mexican tin heart ornaments and mirrors. I have been adding digital collage elements to the line drawings and then uploading the results to CafePress.
I may have too many items up at CafePress, but I think it’s worth it. I’m already paying for a shop, and if someone buys just ONE of my vampire valentines, it will be worth it! I have already two articles from my El Gallo shop, and I just put that up a couple of weeks ago! So far, my biggest sellers have been my Guadalupe Heart, my Frida items, and all of the Loteria designs.
That’s all I have to say right now. I am busy with school – it is grading time, and we are preparing for a visit from the Middle Years Programme people. I need to MYP my classroom. I also need to put some student work up, so I am screwing up my courage to execute a small Heraldry project. My students are going to study the language of heraldry, which comes from French. They are going to design a coat of arms, and write a paragraph on the symbols that they have chosen. I have a great book called Design Your Own Coat of Arms: An Introduction to Heraldry (Paperback)
by Rosemary A. Chorzempa that I am going to use. I just got my classes shuffled, so I may be able to fit them in my classroom.
