Three MORE New Fabrics!

Here are the new releases today! Woo hoo!










Three more tomorrow!

Relating to the “Building Chinaberries” theme….
Ya know…when there is a new design to post, or a new site to post on, for example joining Artmajeur, the tendency and temptation is to post EVERYTHING right away. What I have learned is that the internet moves so fast! Remember that saying “Out of sight, out of mind.”? Stuff gets out of sight in just a few hours online, doesn’t it?

Spoonflower advertises that you can choose from 350,000+ designs. This is why it’s particularly crucial to try to get on the top – the first few pages – to be SEEN. No one will buy what they don’t see, will they?

I could post all 30 of my new designs right away and I would have designs on the “Fresh Pics” for one day, OR I can post three a day and have my designs on the “Fresh Picks” for 10 days. It also gives me new content to blog and post to my biz FB “Chinaberries Central” for 10 days of fresh content. (I learned to keep my personal FB and my biz FB separate too – more on that later)

So, this is a strategy I have learned about building this thing called Chinaberries. Maybe this will help someone else too.


About sharonpassmore

Hi. I am an artist living in Greenville, South Carolina. I am the Art moderator at Eratosphere, a forum of Ablemuse Review. I play with all sorts of art-forms, including digital design and fabric design, but nearest to my heart, at the moment, is collage. I like it best if the collage materials are not recognized from a distance and reveal themselves at close up, the way a painting can look realistic from a distance but on closer inspection, the freedom of brushstrokes becomes apparent. My materials are my brushstrokes. ​ I use anything I find in my collage that suits the purpose, beads, broken jewelry, wallpaper scraps etc... I always try to incorporate recycled packaging too. This is important to me, partly because of the environment, and partly because I get a little thrill out of recognizing the value of materials most people would discard as trash. Think of this next time you peel that wonderful foil seal off a new can of coffee. ​ I am inspired by many kinds of traditional arts and crafts. The cultural history of the world is just loaded with fabulous treasure, isn't it? I view the world of art and art history as a giant buffet and I want to sample a taste of everything. "Mmmmm that Wabi Sabi looks delicious! Gimme a little of that Horror Vacui! Check out those fantastic Molas!" I completely reject the idea that one artform is superior to another due to what is in fashion at the moment. Art is timeless. ​ If there's something I don't like too much, I try to keep in mind that I probably don't understand it, and that's a signal to me that I have something more to learn. There is always something more to learn. Thanks for visitng <3 Sharon Passmore
