Artists For Peace and Free Shipping Offer on Crated
Hello Creative People!
I do hope the New Year is treating you very well thus far. I came across a post on the https://artists4peace.wordpress.com/ blog and felt inspired to tie it in with my own post today.
If you feel your beliefs are in alignment with their blog, be sure and jump in and contribute to their posts to spread the message of Peace versus War in our world.
My painting titled ‘Best Friends’ was meant to capture the sentiment of embracing others and being friends even when it is a very unlikely pairing. This seems to be a theme throughout my entire life with my having unlikely friendships with others. Don’t you agree that our whole world would be a much more positive place to live in if we just accepted others and their way of being and believing?
I don’t feel the need to change anyone’s beliefs and I expect others to afford me the same courtesy. It has not always been easy to accept another’s beliefs when it so profoundly differs from my own, but it has gotten much easier as I’ve gotten older.
My son chose to join the military and ended up doing two tours of Iraq. It was quite challenging for me to accept his beliefs and accept his decision to serve our country in the manner he chose. Ultimately, I had no choice. I love my son and respect his choices and beliefs. I’m very proud of him and appreciate his bravery and courage. I may not agree with him at all times, but I definitely accept his choices such as that one.
Is there someone in your life that you have had to work at accepting their beliefs and choices when they are very different from your own? Do you agree that we need more focus on peace versus war as the Artists for Peace blog states?

Consider Using Crated.com for Your Art Prints
Hello Lovely Artsy People!
Until recently, I had not heard of the popular site Crated.com. An artist friend has many of her lovely pieces featured there and I thought I would check further into the site. It turns out, I love this site!
Once you have your personal page setup, you are good to go. It is easy to upload your art and photography to the site. After that, all that’s left is to let the world know about your art there.
I love that it is free to list your artwork and people from all over the world can order prints from your art. You set how much you want to mark up each piece and then you get a percentage for your compensation. Easy peasy!
It’s fun to check out the other artists on the site and be inspired by them. Another fun feature of Crated is that you can have your very own collection of art by liking and saving your favorite artworks. Sometimes the folks at Crated will feature individual collections on the home page.
Another unique option is that you don’t have to list your own creations to have an account at Crated. You can have your own Art Collection just by opening an account and then start collecting and sharing if you like!
Here are a few of my art pieces that I’ve uploaded thus far –
You can see more of my artwork by visiting my Crated store Itaya’s Designs. This link will take you to the Galleries view of my artwork. You can also view all my pieces at once by clicking on that option once there.
Of course you don’t have to buy the art prints framed, but I love the way it shows off each piece above. You can even see what the piece you are interested in will look like on a wall! They also offer prints on raised canvas if you want your art piece to look even more like a painting.
Pay Crated.com a visit today and see what catches your creative fancy there!
