Broken Toyland Newsletter #08 for 2017

Hello again, from Broken Toyland 🙂

Please keep the victims of hurricane Harvey and the resulting floods, in your prayers. It’s something like most of us have never experienced. So tragic. If you want to donate, here are two very trusted options: Samaritan’s Purse and Pass the Salt ministries.

Trying to give incentive. I have art piling up again.

I have a 15% off coupon code for my etsy shop. It ends at midnight, September 1st, so there’s still all day today and tomorrow until midnight, to use it. There is a minimum purchase of 90$, which can be used on a combined purchase. I really need to move some of this stuff out of the shop. I’m thinking of swapping out some of what’s there, with a local gallery that has my art. So if there’s something in my etsy shop you’ve had your eye on, now’s the time. Because it might be going to a gallery very soon.

That said, here’s the newest art!

Now, I’ve been wanting to make some Broken Toyland jewelry for years. I’ve had a few supplies but not what I really wanted. Until recently. I bought some items to create art pendants. Each, with an original painting inside. However, the supplies I got, were just awful. I have to order some better things online, when I get the means. This is the one and only so far. I wanted to make 3 and had the stuff to do it, but the other two broke while I was trying to get the cover on. Wasted money on junk. Disappointing, but it’s ok. Experimenting is important and now I know where NOT to buy those types of pendant pieces.

Not sure how I managed to get this one together without breaking it. But this is basically what I want to create in the future, once I get the right parts. Though they will probably be all black. We’ll see.

I have some unique items coming, so keep an eye out on my main art facebook page for that. I’ll be posting them in a couple days 🙂

Also, regarding facebook… please check to ‘get notifications’ for my postings. Otherwise you most likely will not see them. Here’s how:

From a desktop computer, go to the Broken Toyland facebook page. You’ll see some options under the cover photo. One will say, ‘following’. Hover your cursor over that button. A dropbox will open with options. Put a check by ‘see first’. Next, see where it says, ‘notifications’ ? To the right of ‘notifications’, there is a small pencil icon. It’s tiny. But you have to click on that little pencil and options will open. Tick the ‘all posts’ box. Then click ‘done’ at the bottom. They’ve really made it difficult, haven’t they? lol. But if you do those steps, you will see my posts. They might be delayed in notifying you by 50 minutes or so, but you’ll get the notice in your facebook. And if you do not see it when you click on your notifications, you might have to scroll down in them to see. FB loves hiding stuff lol.

Anyways, that’s all for now. Until next time, take good care of yourselves.
