And it decided that it wanted a white palm frond (palm frond is white before the frond open and as a fan/frond it turns green) rim with brown wood beads.

I have decided that with the beginning of the new year I would do some house cleaning with regards to my basket business.
To start with I made a new e mail, however, the old one will still reach me. The new one is EarthBaskets@gmail.com. It is all set up and running as we speak.
Then I discovered that I cannot simply change the name on a Facebook fan page. So I created another one...Earth Baskets of course, I have already been posting on it also.
Then I even started a new blog, all of which is terribly time consuming. You not only have to build these sites, you also have to promote an online presence, even more time consuming. On top of that I never have had much on-line luck, even when I had an Etsy and an Artfire and worked them every day for 2 years (as far as sales). I have come to the conclusion that my baskets started to sell once folks could pick them up, smell and feel them. So why am I putting myself through this???
I don't want to spend so much time on line that I have to fight for time to MAKE the art. So I will keep the new email, the new Facebook and I am going to change the name of this blog to Earth Baskrts also. Nice and uniform, easy peasy. I just have to get them all connected and then it will only be a few minutes a day for maintenance.
Pandula Arts Creations served its purpose and all of the time and effort antics successes and failures are still readily available. But now I want things to run in a more streamline fashion. I hope it makes things easier for you also.
So keep watching, and I will try to make these changes as easy as possible.
Now for a couple of pictures...only one little one and the start of another.

I am going to try and do a short post from my new ph. Let's see how it works.
These are the tw tiny baskets that sold this weekend. Plus I had a lady leave a small deposit on another, and yet another wanting a class!!! Now I want to just keep the momentum going.
For those who have not already seen the pic, this is a " box " basket I am working on currently. It will eventually become a messesger bag that I will use myself. I will use another piece of wood cut the same as this one for a lid. Maybe a leather strap, or a beautiful scarf...
Now let's see if this posts. Wish me luck.
