Goodbye Etsy.

Well, I have to say that I'm a little baffled by Etsy's new payment policy, but it's just too darned complicated for me to even consider signing.  I don't want my personal bank details to be used and I don't have a business account, so the sensible option has always been Paypal. But now Etsy has decided that this isn't enough and I would have to apply for an account using my personal details, which it would appear can be shared with 3rd party providers, which is an instant no, no!

So that's it then, I'll be back to reorganising my website and selling from Facebook, which to be honest has had more sales than Etsy! 

So you can check out my Facebook page here  Oakmoonstudio  although, there isn't a lot on there, because as I've said before, I'm moving house and that's taking priority at the moment.  Stay with me though, as things are going to get interesting ;)

A little painting.

Before I came down with the throat virus I managed a little painting in the Studio. I'm just flexing my painting muscles before trying more challenging work.

This is one I've been meaning to work on for a long time, Moomin and her pony Toffee. I've called it Moon and Stars, because that's what they mean to each other :D
 This little snippet is something new I'm trying. I definitely want to do more, but fitting it in with house clearing and trying to pull the overgrown garden back into shape is becoming quite a juggling act!
Next week we're going back to France. Big things are happening and I hope to have more news when we get home!!!
