Selling Myself

Well, what I mean is, really being proud of my work and saying why I think it's of superior quality. So I just put this statement in my store description on Etsy. I'm afraid people will think I'm being too pushy or snobby, but I don't know. Comments?

**NOTE: I know a lot of artists make the quilted coasters but I feel mine are superior because 1)I use felt for batting so it's flatter for cups to stand on, and 2)Instead of just doing a topstitch and leaving it at that, I take great care in my quilting on each coaster, making it a work of art, following the lines of a motif on the fabric and making each one unique; and finally, 3)I make the price quite reasonable compared to the typical price out there for a 4-coaster set.**

I mean, look at my lovely detail in cupcake coaster photo. Isn't it just yummy? Okay, that's all I wanted to say.

I will agree wholeheartedly on the quality of your coasters. They are absorbent, they are flat, they are just the right thickness (not wombly-thick but cushiony thick) and they have delightful prints. And they are all stitched to perfection. I'm gradually putting them all over my house. In fact, they are wall-worthy.

Rock on.

I wanted to write and tell you about a new forum for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives you a gigabyte of space to showcase your portfolio, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself, it would be greatly appreciated! You can also link to it on your site! Thank you!

All the best,
