So, I'm currently faced with a slight, although very quickly fading, overstock on cards. I've put up ten of my favorites on SALE at my ZoiShop on Etsy.com including my "Foggy Trails" photo card shown below.

I know I'm kind of kicking myself in the arse for being so in love with someone else's wearable art, but I keep coming back and back to Heather Kent's Etsy, HeatherKent.
Her miniature painting necklace's have really inspired me into the direction I want to go with my own wearable art. To put it plain and simply, her jewelry is just darn right adorable.
You can also follow Heather (HeatherKentArt) on twitter! Don't forget to add me (ZoiShop) too!
I just put up two of my own photo necklace's, "Butterfly" & "You Melt My Heart", up for sale on Etsy. Although this is not the design that my line will have, I'm still quite happy with my work.
Wearable art is a really interesting concept to me, and I simply love the idea of taking my work and making it something people can literally USE every day.

I found this handmade necklace, made my Michelle Wey on Etsy.com earlier today, and had to share it.
I don't know what it is about it specifically that I've found so attractive. I guess it's simplicity. Maybe the autumn colors. I just found it worth sharing as a unique find. It's a little expensive, but hey, a splurge isn't always a bad thing right?

2011 is off to a great start, and I hope to only build from here. That is not to say I didn't begin without any resolutions. Among the many things I want to work on this year building my art business, blogging more and, of course, a new year can't do without this, losing a few extra pounds, top the list.
I've begun fulfilling my resolutions, by making a big, but not so hard decision, to change my company name from Aztlán Photo Works to Zoi designs by Sandra Santos. I want to build out of the photography niche, although, most of my works will still be photography based, I do enjoy art, including pencils and pastels, so I want to explore and share those elements of myself as well. By creating collections, one of which will remain: Aztlán Photo Cards, I hope to be able to expand, yet remain centralized.
A new name could only mean one thing, a new Etsy shop, http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZoiShop and a new twitter, http://twitter.com/#!/zoishop.
This year I'm beginning with a marketing splurge. There are good things to come, and I'm stoked!
I hope everyone's new year is starting off with a bang as well!
