Thanks Heaps Cat! I really loved this course. I have just started on Society 6 and have made my first couple of sales. Yeah!!!! I was weighing up whether it's worth continuing because I realised a lot of work does go into it and questioned whether it would it be worth it. After watching your course I have decided I am going to continue. I will sell my art this way....and grow my art brand. Now, thanks to you I have a definite game plan I can follow and one I have confidence in! Thanks sooooooo much for your generosity with everything you share in this course. It is so appreciated by us all. You are also a huge inspiration. Love your art by the way. Thanks again....Jill :)
I always love to hear your tips cat! Thank you for sharing!
